Scouting Wichita State

Wichita State does three things fairly well that will attract Virginia’s attention heading into Wednesday’s match-up. The Shockers (2-1) possess a host of tall, experienced post players that rebound aggressively. They are pretty accurate shooting beyond the three-point line. And...

Stacking up some of the largest margins of defeat of Tony Bennett's coaching career

It's not by design, Washington Coach Lorenzo Romar said, that the Huskies possess just three players taller than 6-foot-6 on their roster. Coming off a 26-10 season season in 2009-10, Washington isn't going to wow anyone as they walk into,...
