Evansville’s upset of No. 1 Kentucky sends clear message to college basketball’s top programs

first_imgThis is not the story in 2019. The Evansville victory over the top-ranked Wildcats was a clear message to this season’s most respected teams: You ain’t all that.MORE: John Calipari pitches intriguing “summer league” ideaWhen it was time to rank the teams in the preseason for 2019-20, the top choice was easy. Michigan State began with a reigning first-team All-American, seven of the top 10 scorers from a team that won dual Big Ten Conference championships and reached the Final Four and a well-regarded recruiting class. Before the Spartans even played a game, the second-best of their players suffered a recurrence of a foot injury, and suddenly Sparty was no longer unassailable.Everyone else that even entered the conversation either was highly dependent on the top freshmen from a national recruiting class known to be uncommonly weak or carried significant uncertainties or apparent flaws into the season. No. 4 Duke’s three-man starting frontcourt was entirely composed of freshmen in its Champions Classic victory over No. 3 Kansas. The Jayhawks have three pure post players, none of whom is comfortable playing away from the basket on offense or defense.Kentucky brought back one starter and three other regulars from last season’s Elite Eight team, then complemented that group with another esteemed recruiting class: small forward Khalil Whitney, shooter Johnny Juzang, stretch-4 Keion Brooks and, the jewel of the class, combo guard Tyrese Maxey. All of them should be fine — or better — college players in time. Only Maxey seems equipped to make an immediate, transformative impact.This should not be unexpected, though. You can almost see the sweat stains adorning the various mock drafts that greeted the start of the college season. They’re putting freshmen up high because someone must be at the top of the list. There are only so many international prospects, and there haven’t yet been enough games to determine whether there are a few guys on the order of Buddy Hield or Mikal Bridges among the college veterans.And, truth is, there probably aren’t.It’s one of those years like 2009-10, 2012-13 or 2015-16, when the freshman class just happens to be a little less gifted. Because of the age-limit rule and the premature early entry of many draft prospects, college basketball has become largely dependent on the quality of its freshman class to elevate the quality of the competition.MORE: Explaining James Wiseman’s eligibility issuesWhen the top freshmen are on the order of a Zion Williamson and R.J. Barrett in 2018-19, or Anthony Davis and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist in 2011-12, or when the group as a whole is so powerful a talent like T.J. Leaf in 2016-17 can’t crack the top 15, the quality of play among the championship contenders is greater. Teams know winning a championship is going to require an effort like Duke delivered in 2015, or Virginia just a few months ago.Kentucky entered its Evansville game without starting power forward E.J. Montgomery and with several key regulars playing hurt. That made the Wildcats’ defeat less implausible, but no more excusable. The Purple Aces had to perform well, and the 18 points from guard K.J. Riley and the 17 from Kansas transfer Sam Cunliffe were huge. But they didn’t have to play brilliantly. As a team, the Purple Aces shot 38.3 percent and committed 14 turnovers. They made only 9-of-30 (30.0 percent) from 3-point range.Kentucky’s had games like this with its freshmen before: against the Miami RedHawks in 2009, but John Wall’s astonishing individual talent rescued the Wildcats; against Southern Illinois last year, when Keldon Johnson led UK to a double-digit win in the end. This UK team might ultimately win a championship, but it is not initially overwhelming. There was a time in college basketball’s past that the best teams were so powerful that a result such as Evansville 67, Kentucky 64 was close to unimaginable. This never would have occurred with Indiana’s Hoosiers in 1975, with North Carolina’s Tar Heels in 1981 or with UNLV’s Runnin’ Rebels in 1990.It wouldn’t have happened, even, with the Duke Blue Devils of 12 months ago. “We worked for a month, maybe longer, on toughness because I knew that would be a key,” Kentucky coach John Calipari told reporters after the game. “And we reverted today. You saw a team that was way tougher than us. Their guards were more physical and tougher. We couldn’t post the ball… we couldn’t hold position in the post. We couldn’t come off screens… all the toughness.”This wasn’t a miracle. This wasn’t like UMBC’s exquisite execution of No. 1 NCAA Tournament seed Virginia in March 2018. This simply was an upset.It probably won’t be the last of the 2019-20 season, which won’t be a work of athletic art — but it will be a blast.last_img read more

Taylor Hall trade rumors: New Jersey Devils have ‘started to listen’ to potential deals, report says

first_imgThat said, the Devils have played around a 91-point pace for nearly 20 games and have stabilized some of the problems it had in that horrible start. Not convinced they’re selling this early.— Greg Wyshynski (@wyshynski) November 30, 2019Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman and Chris Johnston reportedly said on ‘Hockey Night in Canada’ that if the Devils look for a trade partner, the Oilers, Avalanche, Blues and Canadiens may show interest. New Jersey’s asking price? Two first round picks (one may be conditional) and a team’s top prospect.MORE: Four possible destinations for New Jersey Devils’ Taylor HallThrough 24 games, the Devils sit in last place in the Metropolitan Division with a 9-11-4 record (22 points). The holiday shopping season has officially begun, and Taylor Hall may be on several teams’ wish lists.According to TSN’s Pierre LeBrun, the New Jersey Devils have started to listen to offers for Hall. It may not mean anything in the short term, but LeBrun reports that Devils general manager Ray Shero is considering all possibilities. Should Hall be dealt to another team, LeBrun expects conditions to be placed on the agreement that would see New Jersey acquire further assets should Hall re-sign with his new club.If and when he’s dealt, I would expect the deal to have a conditional nature to it so that if he re-signs with his new club there will be additional asset(s)… Either way, this isn’t necessarily a deal _ if it happens _ that must wait until the Feb. 24 deadline….— Pierre LeBrun (@PierreVLeBrun) November 30, 2019NHL free agency 2020: Taylor Hall, Alex Pietrangelo headline UFA classHall, 28, is in the final season of a seven-year, $42 million contract and thus could be an attractive option for a team looking to acquire a high-scoring veteran ahead of the postseason. The Calgary, Alta. native won the Hart Trophy as the NHL’s most valuable player in 2018 following a career-high 93 points (39 goals) for the Devils, but missed most of last season with a knee injury.The former Edmonton Oilers forward leads New Jersey with four goals and 21 points so far this season.A potential landing spot for Hall may be Colorado, with ESPN’s Greg Wyshynski reporting that New Jersey scouted the Avalanche “at all levels” this season.last_img read more

Bowl season betting guide: Odds, lines, picks for Saturday’s college football games

first_imgCelebration BowlNorth Carolina A&T -2.5 vs. Alcorn State, O/U 51.5Florida A&M would have been the MEAC representative in this game if not for a postseason ban levied by the NCAA in the summer. Instead of seeing the Rattlers in the Celebration Bowl for the first time, we will see the North Carolina A&T Aggies making their fourth trip in five years, and they will be facing the Alcorn State Braves for the third time in that span.North Carolina A&T has had its way with the SWAC champion in the Celebration Bowl, winning all three of its previous appearances here. However, the Aggies are the weakest they have been in some time. They no longer have extremely gifted athletes like Lamar Raynard or Tarik Cohen, and the offensive line is not as strong without Brandon Parker holding down left tackle. The third time should be the charm for Alcorn State provided Felix Harper doesn’t turn the ball over, making the Braves a nice moneyline play.New Mexico BowlSan Diego State -3.5 vs. Central Michigan, O/U 40.5Buyer beware … this game is going to be tough to watch. The New Mexico Bowl has the lowest total of any game during bowl season, as San Diego State pairs the 127th ranked offense in the nation with the 11th best defense by SP+. Central Michigan is ranked outside the top 70 in both phases of the game by SP+, but there’s a good reason to like the Chippewas here.Aztecs’ head coach Rocky Long is 4-9 all-time in bowl games during his coaching career. Many of those losses weren’t against great teams, and San Diego State is 3-5 ATS under Long in bowl games.MORE: Picking all 40 bowl games in 2019-20Cure BowlGeorgia Southern -4 vs. Liberty, O/U 58.5Hugh Freeze has taken Liberty to a bowl game for the first time in school history, but the Flames played the softest schedule in the country to get to Orlando. Only their win against Buffalo looks good, as their other six victories came against two FCS schools, UMass, New Mexico, and New Mexico State (twice).The conventional wisdom is that triple option teams underachieve in bowl season considering opponents have time to prepare for the scheme, but that hasn’t played out. Since 2007, the true triple option teams (Army, Air Force, Navy, Georgia Southern, and Paul Johnson’s Georgia Tech) are 28-18 ATS.Boca Raton BowlSMU -3.5 vs. Florida Atlantic, O/U 68.5The Owls have the benefit of playing a home game on Saturday, but it’s hard to know how motivated Florida Atlantic will be for this game. Teams that are playing under an interim coach have a mixed track record in bowl season, and FAU played in the weakest conference in the FBS this season.We should see plenty of points since SMU is involved though. Sonny Dykes has built the Mustangs in his image, and the average SMU game has seen almost 75 points scored in 2019. Lane Kiffin may have left Boca Raton, but plenty of offensive minds remain and this game is the most likely shootout on the board.Camellia BowlArkansas State -2.5 vs. Florida International, O/U 60.5We have yet to see a blowout in the Camellia Bowl. The largest margin of victory in the history of this bowl was five points, and the five bowl games played thus far have a total MOV of 17 points. Accordingly, the college football betting line for this game is under a field goal, and this is the biggest toss-up on the board for Saturday.Las Vegas BowlWashington -3 vs. Boise State, O/U 49Chris Petersen will call it a career in Sin City on Saturday with a fitting final game. He will be facing the program he helped put on the map in Boise State, and there are sure to be emotions displayed on the sidelines and in the stands. This Saturday is the busiest day remaining for college football. The Division II Championship Game between West Florida and Minnesota State and the FCS Semifinals will be broadcast on the ESPN family of networks, but the games most people are jonesing for are the seven bowl games scheduled to take place throughout the day. This is one of the last days to lean back in your recliner and let the college football wash over you all day, so here’s a primer for those games.MORE: Get the latest NCAA odds & betting advice at Sports Insider The Huskies will be short-handed though with tight end Hunter Bryant declaring early for the NFL Draft and star left tackle Trey Adams sitting out his final collegiate game. Adams has kept Jacob Eason relatively untouched in the pocket, while Bryant has been his favorite receiver throughout 2019, leading to questions surrounding Washington’s offense.New Orleans BowlAppalachian State -17 vs. UAB, O/U 47.5When the opening bowl game betting odds were released two weeks ago, Appalachian State was the biggest favorite on the board. UAB looked lost in the Conference USA Championship Game against Florida Atlantic, and the Blazers sputtered over the second half of the season.Although Eli Drinkwitz left Appalachian State after one season to take the job at Missouri, the Mountaineers are still heavy favorites in this game. They have an elite defense that made App State one of the best Group of Five teams in the country, and Zac Thomas is a very good dual threat quarterback. App State has continually showed up in bowl games, winning four straight bowl games coming into the New Orleans Bowl, and their last two victories were by a combined 66 points.last_img read more

Baseball Hall of Fame announcement: Date, time, vote tracker, predictions for class of 2020

first_imgIn 2019, four players were elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame by the BBWAA: Mariano Rivera, Roy Halladay, Edgar Martinez and Mike Mussina. Who will be elected as part of the class of 2020?  We will find out soon. Here’s what you need to know.MORE: Spring training reporting dates for all 30 MLB teamsWhen is the Baseball Hall of Fame announcement? The Hall of Fame election results will be announced on Jan. 21 at 6 p.m ET. How can I watch the Hall of Fame announcement?The Hall of Fame election results will be broadcast live on MLB Network. Coverage begins at 3 p.m. ET, with the announcement set for 6 p.m. ET.Who is likely to be elected?Derek Jeter, the longtime Yankees shortstop, is a lock for induction. Jeter’s Yankees won five World Series championships and he’s sixth all-time with 3,465 hits in his career. He won the Rookie of the Year award, finished in the top 10 of the AL MVP voting eight times (a high of second place in 2006) and owns a career .321 average with a .384 on-base percentage in the World Series. The only question is whether he’ll be a unanimous selection (even though that shouldn’t matter, it will absolutely be a topic of conversation). Aside from Jeter, there are a couple of players with a fighting chance of reaching the 75 percent of the vote necessary for induction. Larry Walker is in his 10th and final year on the BBWAA ballot, and after the ballot-clearing of the past few years — 11 players have been elected by the BBWAA in the past three election cycles — Walker is finally getting his fair Cooperstown shake. As of Jan. 9, Walker’s vote totals are above 84 percent. There are a lot of ballots still to be counted, though. Curt Schilling is around 80 percent, with Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens hovering right at the 75 percent level. All three have undeniable Hall of Fame statistics, but all three have lost votes due to voters using the vague character clause to keep them out of Cooperstown’s hallowed halls. If past voting trends continue, the percentages for those three will be smaller when the final vote totals are revealed, because voters who keep their ballots private have tended not to vote for those three. In 2019, Schilling’s actual vote percentage was roughly 5 percentage points lower than his public ballot percentage; for Bonds and Clemens, that number was right around 8 percentage points lower. Who will else is on the ballot? Remember how we mentioned the ballot-clearing of recent years? That has freed up voters to actually vote for players they feel belong, not just finding the best way to use their 10-vote maximum. Eight players have seen their “gained votes from returning voters” number hit double digits, giving their candidacies the boosts they deserved. Larry Walker, who we’ve already mentioned, is up 22 votes. The other big gainers: Scott Rolen (+39), Gary Sheffield (+36), Todd Helton (+36), Billy Wagner (+26), Andruw Jones (+24), Jeff Kent (+21), Omar Vizquel (+15) and Manny Ramirez (+10). Andy Pettitte is up eight votes, and Sammy Sosa is up six. Jeter is the only ballot newbie with any chance of being elected, and Bobby Abreu is the only other newcomer with a reasonable chance of hitting the 5-percent minimum necessary to stay on the ballot for another year. Aside from Abreu, who’s right around 6 percent, the only other newcomers to receive even one vote on the tracker are Jason Giambi, Cliff Lee and Paul Konerko. Any players on the ballot but not listed here have not received any public votes.How can I track the Hall of Fame vote totals?Public votes are tracked via the Baseball Hall of Fame Ballot Tracker, which was created by Ryan Thibodaux. The tracker is updated frequently during the voting season and has become a valuable resource for fans and media.How do players become eligible for the Baseball Hall of Fame ballot?There are 32 players on this year’s ballot, and only 19 have received public votes. Here’s how the ballot was determined. From BBWAA.com: 1. A baseball player must have been active as a player in the Major Leagues at some time during a period beginning twenty (20) years before and ending five (5) years prior to election.2. Player must have played in each of ten (10) Major League championship seasons, some part of which must have been within the period described in 3 (A).3. Player shall have ceased to be an active player in the Major Leagues at least five (5) calendar years preceding the election but may be otherwise connected with baseball.4. In case of the death of an active player or a player who has been retired for less than five (5) full years, a candidate who is otherwise eligible shall be eligible in the next regular election held at least six (6) months after the date of death or after the end of the five (5) year period, whichever occurs first.5. Any player on Baseball’s ineligible list shall not be an eligible candidate. When is the Hall of Fame induction ceremony?The Hall of Fame Weekend is July 24-27 in Cooperstown, N.Y., with the induction ceremony scheduled for 1:30 p.m. ET on July 26. It will be broadcast live on MLB Network. MLBPA guru Marvin Miller and catcher Ted Simmons were elected by the Modern Baseball Era Committee in December, and they will be honored at the ceremony, along with any players elected by the BBWAA. Who votes for the Baseball Hall of Fame?The Baseball Writers’ Association of America has voted for the Hall of Fame from the very beginning (first class was 1936). Voters do not have to reveal their ballots, but are encouraged to do so, for transparency’s sake. From BBWAA.com: Only active and honorary members of the Baseball Writers’ Association of America, who have been active baseball writers for at least ten (10) years, shall be eligible to vote. They must have been active as baseball writers and members of the Association for a period beginning at least ten (10) years prior to the date of election in which they are voting.What are the voting rules and regulations for the Baseball Hall of Fame?From the ballot explainer mailed out to BBWAA voters in November: Candidates who receive votes on 75 percent of more of ballots cast will earn election to the National Baseball Hall of Fame as part of the Class of 2020. Candidates will automatically return to the ballot in 2021, provided they receive votes on a minimum of 5 percent of ballots cast. If any player receives less, he will no longer be eligible for consideration by the BBWAA, and all candidates have a maximum of 10 years of eligibility for review by the organization.last_img read more

Mookie Betts trade rumors: Padres looking to go big with Red Sox outfielder

first_imgWhile moving Betts’ contract would help in accomplishing Henry’s goal, Myers’ $13.8 million tax figure would bump Boston back toward the upper limit. Also, Myers’ contract runs through the 2022 season.The Padres’ goals are more baseball-driven, but there’s also a business element to pursuing the 2018 American League MVP. Betts would join a lineup that already includes Manny Machado, Fernando Tatis Jr., Tommy Pham and Eric Hosmer. The Padres would use a Betts deal to tell fans that they want to contend for a playoff spot now. San Diego can stay comfortably below the tax threshold even if it makes an eight-figure commitment to Betts. Cot’s Baseball Contract currently projects the Padres’ 2020 CBT payroll at $152.5 million. Finances are at the root of Betts trade rumors this offseason. The 27-year-old outfielder will make $27 million in 2020 after agreeing to a one-year contract that averted a salary arbitration hearing. He can become a free agent after the World Series ends in the fall and appears to be committed to testing the market.MORE: Five managerial candidates Sox should consider after Alex Cora’s dismissalRed Sox owner John Henry said after the 2019 season that he would like the Sox to dip below the $208 million Competitive Balance Tax payroll threshold this year after exceeding the limit in 2018 and 2019. Boston’s current tax number for 2020 is $225.5 million, according to Cot’s Baseball Contracts’ projections. Boston paid $13.4 million in graduated taxes on its MLB-high $228 million tax number for 2019. It was one of three MLB clubs penalized last year for exceeding the $206 million CBT threshold (the Yankees and Dodgers were the others). If the club can get below $208 million this year, then it would pay the lowest CBT penalties the next time it exceeds the threshold.That’s why Betts and other high-dollar Red Sox players are in the rumor mill this offseason. Left-hander David Price (three years, $96 million remaining on his contract) was a topic of discussion at the Winter Meetings in December. Pundits thought center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr., another impending free agent, would have already been dealt. He will make $11 million in 2020. Left-hander Chris Sale and designated hitter J.D. Martinez are also making big salaries, but there has been little to no chatter about them. The Padres may be looking to rent Mookie Betts for the 2020 season.Padres beat writer Dennis Lin of The Athletic reported Thursday that San Diego has discussed a trade with the Red Sox involving an exchange of Betts and outfielder Wil Myers, with prospects also going toward Boston. Sources, however, told Lin a deal for Betts was “unlikely” to be completed.last_img read more
