NBA’s first openly gay man, Jason Collins, comes out | Hardwood News | NCAA hoops | Scoop.it
Landyn Behn's insight:

12-year NBA veteran Jason Collins made history Monday afternoon after Sports Illustrated released his essay, in which he came out as gay. While many voiced their ignorant opinions, his family, his former teammates, his fans and those who support homosexuality all showed Collins immense amount of support through social media accounts such as Twitter.

Derrick Rose Won’t Return Until Next Season, Per Reports. | NCAA hoops | Scoop.it
Landyn Behn's insight:

Derrick Rose was cleared back in February to practice, which he has, at his own pace of course, but that’s about it. He’s floated the idea of returning this season for the last month and half, but it doesn’t look too promising.

It took four years, but Peyton Siva finally wins a national championshipLandyn Behn | Landyn Behn | NCAA hoops | Scoop.it
Landyn Behn's insight:

Most would say that he’s been there for a good six years, but in fact, Peyton Siva – Louisville’s super-speedster – has only played for coach Rick Pitino for four years. Most also don’t realize that when you’re on TV nearly every week manning ship for one of the greatest college basketball programs in the country, it’s going to seem like you’ve been there for a lot longer than you really are (i.e. Scottie Reynolds).

Carmelo Anthony’s on his way to first scoring title as Knicks win streak hits 12

Carmelo Anthony’s on his way to first scoring title as Knicks win streak hits 12 | NCAA hoops | Scoop.it
Landyn Behn's insight:

50. 40. 41. 36. Those are the number of points Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony has scored the last four games. The most impressive part? He’s shooting 61 percent from the floor, 56 percent from the 3-point line and a stellar 86.4 percent of his free throws. We all know Carmelo can score, he’s been doing that his whole life. But his arsenal of offensive weapons is what makes him the most destructive offensive force in the NBA. The negative weight that’s sat on Melo’s name throughout his career is “he’s one-dimensional,” or “he’s so inconsistent.”

Rutgers fires basketball coach Mike Rice after video surfaces of him using slurs and abusing his playersLandyn Behn | Landyn Behn

Rutgers fires basketball coach Mike Rice after video surfaces of him using slurs and abusing his playersLandyn Behn | Landyn Behn | NCAA hoops | Scoop.it
Landyn Behn's insight:

Maybe Mike Rice didn’t know that team practices are usually videotaped, or maybe he just didn’t care. But after a video surfaced of him not only physically abusing his players by shoving them, kicking them and throwing basketballs at their head and torsos, Rutgers decided to ultimately cut ties with their coach of the men’s basketball team. According to ESPN, the video that surfaced was a lot shorter than what we all were seeing on TV. They have filmed practice tapes dating back to 2010 with Rice continuing is extremely worrisome behavior.

Such a great season for Denver! It's ashame that they lost their best scorer before the playoffs. Hopefully everyone is healthy next season and they can get more shooters on the perimeter.

Bill Clinton wrote a letter to Chris Webber after the infamous timeoutHardwood News | Hardwood News | NCAA hoops | Scoop.it
Landyn Behn's insight:

Although I’m not a Michigan fan, I do understand Chris Webber’s pain that stems back to his time in Ann Arbor as a young kid. He was on top of the world back then, the leader of the ever-famous ‘Fab Five.’ On Monday, as Michigan prepared to face Louisville in the championship game (which they eventually lost), all of the members of the Fab Five were indeed in the stands in Atlanta; including Webber himself.

Jim Boeheim – head coach of the Syracuse men’s basketball team for the last 37 years – has one national title win on his resume (Carmelo Anthony in 2003), he’s a Hall of Fame coach (was inducted into the College Basketball Hall of Fame in 2006) and now has two gold medals sitting on his mantle at home thanks to his assistant coaching efforts with Team USA during the 2008 and 2012 season.
