Maryland's Justin Jackson pulls name out of NBA draft

A year ago, Justin Jackson was a relative unknown to most Maryland fans when he announced his commitment to play for the Terps.

With star John Collins gone, can Wake Forest maintain (relative) success?

In the long-run history of Wake Forest men's basketball, a 19-14 season that ends with a First Four loss to a deeply flawed fellow bubble team would rarely be considered a banner campaign. Relative to recent Demon Deacons teams -- relative to the demoralizing nadir of Jeff Bzdelik's tenure in Winston-Salem -- 2016-17 was an undeniable story of success. (ESPN.com)

What Svi Mykhailiuk’s return means for Kansas basketball

When it comes to Svi Mykhailiuk’s decision to return to college, Kansas is getting a good player back who understands the team’s system after playing it three years.
