Let the record show that I was the first to jump on the Alabama at No. 1 bandwagon last week, which should be a much more popular trend with three of the other top four teams either losing or narrowly losing against inferior opponents. Not the Tide. Led by superstar freshman Brandon Miller and an ever improving defense, it’s more clear now than ever that they are the best team in college basketball. 1. Alabama (17-2) No team in the SEC has proven to be any match for the Tide with all seven of their conference wins coming by double digits. It helps that Brandon Miller continues to prove that he ..read more

As always, Flyin’ to the Hoop featured a mix of national prep teams as well as strong in-state teams. There was plenty of talent on display in four days of basketball. Silas Demary 6’4 185 PG – Combine Academy 2023 (USC) Demary (pictured) was great from start to finish against Lutheran East, hitting contested shots from all 3 levels. He did a good job of getting into the lane and initiated well off the dribble. He handles the ball well with defensive pressure and contact, getting where he wants while not dancing with the ball or over-dribbling. He sets the pace for Combine’s offense and as muc ..read more

This year’s International Draft Class is shaping up to be one of the all time greats with the obvious huge catch at the top as well as a number of other intriguing talents. Here is a look at this year’s group and how they have fared through the first few months of the season. Stock Up Victor Wembanyama (7-2, PF, 2004, Metropolitans 92) It’s difficult to find words to describe what Victor Wembanyama is doing this season. With every basketball fan watching him all the time, the French prospect has managed to thrive under this massive pressure, having the most dominant season by an international ..read more

NIBC: La Porte Invitational

The second annual La Porte Invitational started the new year off right. There were plenty of powerhouse teams and high-level prospects through three days of action. Cooper Flagg 6’8 195 SF – Montverde Academy 2025 Flagg had a quiet 4-point and 4-rebound game against Sunrise Christian Academy. He had a much bigger game against Wasatch with 15 points, 8 rebounds (4 offensive), and 5 blocks. He only made 1 of his 2 3PT attempts in his two games, but he shot well from midrange, showing ability to hit contested shots with confidence. In addition to his shot-blocking, he’s pretty instinctive on the ..read more

16 of the AP Top 25 teams lost this week, wreaking havoc on our power rankings and making the impossible job of the AP voters exceedingly more difficult. The constant of Houston’s relentless pressure, Tennessee’s suffocating defense and Gonzaga’s unstoppable offense remained, pushing them into the top five of this week’s list. The madness came a little early this year, so prepare for one of the wildest rides in recent memory from now until the scheduled madness of March ensues later this year. 1. Houston (16-1) The Cougars are winning by an average of 25 points this season and that number coul ..read more

Closing in on the halfway point of the NBA season, this edition of rookie watch has a lot in store. (Games: 11/28 – 12/26) There are high-risers, players who have fallen toward the end of the list and even some who fell off the list entirely. The top five is identical to the previous edition due to much of the high-end rookie talent preserving their season averages. As some rookies continue to find their footing and some take a leap back, here’s the second edition of rookie watch for the 2022-23 NBA season. 10. Tari Eason – F – Houston Rockets Season Stats: 8.6 PTS, 5.1 REB, 43.8 FG% Averages ..read more

New year, same crazy college basketball. We’re down to one unbeaten team remaining in the nation (New Mexico) thanks to another shocking upset and if it wasn’t clear before that the national championship is wide open for the taking, it surely is now. With only one college football game left, all eyes will turn to basketball soon enough and those fans certainly won’t be disappointed. 1. Houston (14-1) While Houston doesn’t exactly belong in a conference as weak as the American, there will be nights where they are pushed to the brink and Saturday was one of those nights. Great teams find a way t ..read more
