NBA Ball Hog Statistical Ranking: Mar 25, 2015

Missner’s Manifesto: The Big East’s Big Dance Chances

  Over the past months, my feelings about a lot of things related to basketball have changed. Maybe Kansas can produce decent NBA players. Similarly, perhaps Andrew Wiggins is not the next Corey Brewer. My feelings about the Big East, however, have not changed since I wrote about Villanova (against former Big East team, Syracuse) […]

NBA Bench Statistical Rankings: Mar 13, 2015

Missner’s Manifesto: In Praise of Kris Dunn

  For someone who writes about college basketball, I have something kind of strange to admit: I have watched much less college basketball this year than in past years. I used to try to watch multiple games each Saturday and a few during the week. This year, I have been content to choose my college […]
