Bob Hurley, Sr., widely considered as the most-accomplished high school basketball coach ever, gave high praise to John Calipari for Karl-Anthony Towns’ “transformation” this season. We linked the story on Towns from ESPN’s Ian O’Connor yesterday, but Hurley’s quote in the story deserves its own post: He’s completely changed his mindset about where he’s playing…

  John Calipari has called Trey Lyles the X-factor for Kentucky ever since he fully regained his health in late February. But this Kentucky team is like Noah’s Ark — there are at least two of everything — and there are two X-factors. If Trey Lyles is the X-factor of the White Platoon, then Devin…

  After Cincinnati lost its top three scorers from last season, everyone knew the 2014-15 season was going to be a challenging year for the Bearcats. Just making the tournament after losing three starters, especially All-American Sean Kilpatrick (20.6 PPG), would be difficult.
