Hornets Forward Marvin Williams Has Become a Great Rim Protector

Marvin Williams is labeled as a stretch four or an undersized big man but the stats back up that he has become a great interior defender.

College basketball: What happened (and what will happen) along Tobacco Road

Illini football players can't forget basketball's title loss to North Carolina in 2005

The mere mention of that team from Tobacco Road brings up bad memories of 2005 and an Illinois men’s basketball team that was derailed from destiny by the Tar Heels.

The Tar Heels come to town Saturday to face the Illini football team, and that 2005 loss still cuts deep for many. (State Journal-Register)

Harrison Barnes' first priority? Proving himself to Dirk Nowitzki

Imagine being promoted from bartender to the guy in charge of making the beer. Or from greenskeeper to head pro.
