Hottest college hoops player? It might be Marble

There aren’t many college basketball players hotter than Iowa’s Devyn Marble. Louisville’s Russ Smith, maybe? Michigan fans, no doubt, will throw Trey Burke‘s name into the discussion. Fact is, Marble has been on a head-turning hot streak during Iowa’s run to its first NIT title game. In four games, the junior guard is shooting 49 percent and averaging 24.3 points, 4.8 rebounds, 4.8 assists, 2.5 steals, 0.5 blocks and 1.8 turnovers. Not bad, huh? Almost forgot, he boasts an impressive 2.7 assist-to-turnover ratio, to boot. You name it, Marble has done it to lift the Hawkeyes past the likes of

Michigan has lots in common with 1989 title team

Of the seven Big Ten teams selected for the NCAA tourney back on March 17, I didn’t think Michigan would be the last one standing. Not by a long shot. But, here are the Wolverines, heading to Atlanta for the school’s first Final Four since it made back-to-back runs in 1992 and 1993 behind the “Fab Five.” In some ways, though, Michigan’s run to college hoops Holy Grail shouldn’t be a shock. The similarities between this Michigan squad and the one that claimed the school’s last championship in 1988-89 are striking. To start with, many have referenced that ’88-89 season

Video: Bacari gives another literal pep talk

Michigan assistant Bacari Alexander is known for his cheesy pregame pep talks, and he added another example prior to the South Region final Sunday. This time, Alexander used his literal tactics to hammer home the importance of a sports cliche. Alexander, stressing that the team had to play with a chip on its shoulder vs. Florida, placed a potato chip on the left shoulder of the team’s starters. Watch Alexander’s speech at the 1:15 mark of the video above. Here’s what Alexander told the Wolverines after he placed the chip on their shoulders: “I tell you what, fellas, you got

Burke, Michigan highlight NCAA second weekend

A weekend that began with promise for the Big Ten ended amid more disappointment than joy. Many felt the nation’s best league had a chance for multiple teams in the Final Four—maybe even four. But in the end, Michigan was the lone survivor. In fact, the Wolverines and Ohio State were the only Big Ten team to make it to the Elite Eight. No. 1 Indiana and No. 3 Michigan State fell in the Sweet 16 to Syracuse and Duke, respectively. The Orange, for what it’s worth, advanced to the Final Four. Michigan is in the Final Four for the
