This Chicago Bulls fan loves New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin. So what does he do? He spits in his hand (and tells us about it repeatedly) and then high fives Lin and his teammates as they run onto the court. It started what was an all-around crappy night for Lin, whose team lost to the Bulls in Chicago. We kind of wish someone would have punched this kid in the face, but unfortunately, that didn't happen. Here's the video.JUMP!
Via USA Today: Syracuse sophomore Fab Melo will not play in the NCAA tournament due to an eligibility issue, the school announced Tuesday afternoon. Melo did not travel with the team to Pittsburgh. In other words, homeboy isn't using the tutors provided to him very well. What we do know is that Melo still found the time to tweet throughout the day. We were shocked to read that he's not exactly a Twitter moron hoodrat. (@Melo_elo51)
So Maria Menounos was at Sunday's Celtics-Lakers game and we really don't have any sort of story to tell you here. Yes, Maria is still all together at 33-years-old. The arms aren't getting droopy. The face isn't starting to fall apart. But, this is how bad things are for the Celtics organization. Not only is the basketball team ancient, so is the superfan. Not that we'd kick Maria out of bed. However, when your superfan is 33, the program is in trouble. JUMP!
Via: After two sixth grade teams played at the Holy Name School in Springfield, Mass., for the boy's championship basketball game, police received a report of a disturbance. Police said the assistant coach of the losing team, Timothy Lee Forbes, 34, of Springfield assaulted the coach of the winning team after the game and bit off part of his ear. The victim was rushed to the Baystate Medical Center emergency room in an ambulance to reattach the ear. #SMH
Oklahoma City's own Kevin Durant is giving Seattle the old heave ho. At least, he's giving his old Seattle pad he heave-ho. So, his franchise got up and moved from one of the coolest cities in the west to one of the, uh.... Waffle House-havingest cities in the west. Durant held onto his Seattle pad even after his franchise bolted, but hell, it's time to unload. KD's old pad, which we're pretty sure Bigfoot p*ssed on, is on the market for $2.8 million. Here's a look.
Welcome to our old friend, the 'Ladies of March Madness' series that always makes its appearance during this time of year when basketball is king for four weeks. The goal of the series remains simple: find hot cheerleaders from schools in the NCAA Tournament. While the office dork next to you is worried about who he should take in the Alabama vs. Creighton game, you're familiarizing yourself with ladies Verne Lundquist will be lusting after. Today we meet Caitlin - JUMP!
Of course you guys are going to drill us for another 'guess who ______ is dating' story, but this one really has value to your March Madness brackets. Syracuse senior guard Scoop Jardine enters the NCAA Tournament as the boyfriend of Michael Jordan's daughter, Jasmine. Why is that a big deal? Um, you think MJ wants Scoop coming around his house - with his daughter - is the 'Cuse get knocked out by Vandy? Nope. JUMP!
BC reader Michael Y sent this to us last night: Not quite a ESPN error, but a CBS one on the widely viewed selection sunday show. Apparently the 8th Seeded Wildcats in the East Region are 32-2. Good work, Michael. For those of you always bitching that we pick on ESPN, suck it. We'll gladly pick on CBS interns, too. Just so we're all clear, K-State finished the year 21-10 and do have a quality win over Missouri. Plan your bracket accordingly.
You can now go about life for about 10.5 months without hearing Joe Lunardi tell you his 'Last Four In' during your dreams. However, you'll be stuck with Seth Davis rambling nonsense until about 12:35 a.m. EST for the next three weekends. If there's nothing more American than apple pie, there's nothing more American in March than somebody being p*ssed off at a basketball analyst during March Madness. Last night the venom spewed. JUMP!
YAAAWWWWWWWWWWNNNNNNNNNNN. Oh, sorry, just reacting to Jay Bilas & his #1 Final Four. This scenario has only happened once (2008) in the modern tournament era (since tourney was expanded to 64 teams in 1985). Plan your bracket accordingly. So the trendy picks are Vanderbilt & Florida State...because they beat #1 seeds on Sunday? Makes total sense to us. (Alert: pick opposite of trends.) Kentucky is our pick. On a limb. Let's get rolling!
The NCAA Tournament selection show was tonight and they announced the number 1 seeds. Kentucky, Syracuse, Michigan State and North Carolina all were selected as those number 1 seeds. Are you looking for all the of the seeding and bracketology? Well Busted Coverage has you covered. We have the south, east, west, and midwest region seeding all for you. Watch the SEC get completely hosed. JUMP!
Well this Ohio State fan is definitely having some fun at the Big 10 Tournament dressed up in full XXXXL jersey, facepaint, and hoop net hat. This is the last game before the selection Sunday show and all of the brackets are set. The Ohio State Buckeyes and the Michigan State Spartans faced off in the final of the Big 10 Tournament tonight for the crown. Tom Izzo got T-ed up for cursing out a referee in this game. JUMP!
Yes, that is the mother of Anthony Davis and yes she is wearing a little white batman style mask. His dad also looks like he is missing some teeth. What can you expect from a Kentucky team? In the last game of the SEC Tournament, the Vanderbilt Commodores took on the Kentucky Wildcats for the crown. It's selection Sunday, so be prepared to see if your team made it into the NCAA Tournament or not. JUMP!
Duke's Quinn Cook drove to the basket against multiple FSU defenders and made an absolutely outstanding basket even though he was fouled. This all went down in the semifinals of the ACC Tournament where the FSU Seminoles took on the Duke Blue Devils. North Carolina fans watched in the crowd to see which team they would play in the ACC championship game. Photos and video after the JUMP!
The University of Kentucky actually paid for this billboard to be put up in New Orleans of Anthony Davis. They said it was done to promote the Big Blue Nation for the SEC Tournament and the NCAA Tournament. The Florida Gators took on the Kentucky Wildcats in the semifinal of the SEC Tournament today and Casey Prather of the Gators just slammed a dunk right in a Kentucky's player's grill. JUMP!
BC reader Jason, at LSU-Shreveport, checked in last night. "Saw this during a timeout of the Cincinnati upset over Syracuse... And he is #25." See what happens during March Madness? People start watching college basketball. Rakeem Christmas has started ALL but one game this season. Sidenote: he was born December 1, 1991. In NFL news this morning, the Colts are now an expansion team. Here are the roster casualties. Let's get rolling!
