ESPN.com Power Rankings 2013

Is this the season it all clicks for head coach Cuonzo Martin? In 2011-12, the Vols revealed exciting potential; in 2012-13, they failed to make good. There is every reason for optimism now: Bullish forward Jarnell Stokes and SEC leading scorer Jordan McRae will be rejoined by Jeronne Maymon, who spent almost all of last season recovering from knee surgery. Point guard Trae Golden left the team in May, but the transfer of Memphis guard Antonio Barton might be a better fit anyway. It’s NCAA tournament or bust in Knoxville this season, and that’s a baseline expectation. — Eamonn Brennan Source Article from http://espn.go.com/ncb/feature/video/_/page/preseason-power-rankings-2013-2014/power-rankings-2013ESPN.com Power Rankings 2013http://espn.go.com/ncb/feature/video/_/page/preseason-power-rankings-2013-2014/power-rankings-2013http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/rss/ncb/newsESPN.com – College BasketballLatest College Basketball news from ESPN.comhttp://a.espncdn.com/i/tvlistings/tv_espn_original.gif Home NCAAB Read More »

Purdue suspends Hammons, cites team rules

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Purdue center A.J. Hammons was suspended Monday for three games for violating team rules. Hammons will miss two exhibition games and Purdue’s regular-season opener Nov. 8 against Northern Kentucky. Coach Matt Painter declined to elaborate on what rules were broken, other than the suspension for the 7-foot, 251-pound Hammons was related to “conduct” and not academics, legal trouble or NCAA rule violations. “I think one of these situations is that you learn a lot about the individual because when something like this happens, you let your teammates down but you’ve also let yourself down,” Painter said. “If you have some pride, you know you’re not going to let it happen again.” Hammons is expected to be ...

Hanner: Projections for all 351 teams

Cauley-Stein-Braun-Artis 131024What happens when you project all 351 teams? Well, it looks something like this. As I have for the past few years, I have produced projections for every Division I college basketball team heading into the 2013-14 season. I explained my formula in great detail in a post for RealGM.com, but the shortened version is this: I ran 10,000 simulations of every D-I player and each team’s defense, and then ranked the teams 1-351 based on the median simulation. The categories I provide for each team below are as follows: Rank: Ranking based on median simulation POFF: Projected offense, median prediction for points scored per 100 possessions PDEF: Projected defense, median prediction for points allowed per 100 possessions BC: ...
