Tough to argue with Larry Brown's success

Let's be cynical. Southern Methodist University did the right thing when it hired Larry Brown. The man did everything you'd expect him to do, and the school profited and gained publicity and won a lot more basketball games because of it. Former presidents of the United States suddenly sat in the front row because of it. (

The team lost Andrew Bogut, Harrison Barnes, Festus Ezeli, Leandro Barbosa, Mo Speights and Brandon Rush in free agency. (KNBR-AM)

Larry Brown leaves SMU in the most Larry Brown way possible

In the end, it was all so predictable -- first the winning, then the NCAA scandal and, finally, the abrupt resignation that leaves a basketball program in an awkward spot.

Second-round ACC point guards take center stage in Utah

A pair of second-round draft pick point guards from ACC schools were on center stage Thursday on the final day of the NBA Utah Summer League tournament. UNC’s Marcus Paige scored seven points for the Utah Jazz in its 86-75 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers.

SI's Off-Season College Basketball Power Rankings

6. North Carolina Tar Heels: Joel Berry Berry is a big-game guard—he had a remarkable 131.3 offensive rating against opponents ranked in’s top 50 last season—and his next step should be to take on a bigger scoring role with Marcus Paige and Brice Brice Johnson moving on to the pros.

Clippers' Brice Johnson has Roy Williams in his corner and a chance to contribute immediately

The television is there. The game’s playing, and Roy Williams wants to make sure to watch Brice Johnson – his favorite player ever. That last part isn’t exactly true or maybe it is, Williams didn’t say. But during the Clippers’ summer league game Sunday in Orlando, he shared a story that might shed light on why he said he “loves” Johnson like a son. (Orange County Register)
