Chansky’s Notebook: Show Me First

Duke, Duke, Duke. Here we go again. Duke shot 42 percent and missed 11 of 20 free throws. How my buddy Tom got “great” out of that is like me saying UNC is great after the Tar Heels roll over two Bahamian all-star teams down there this weekend. Duke may indeed turn out great, but I’ll go with what its student newspaper said after missing Final Fours the last two years. “I don’t buy it.” (

Syracuse Football: 2018 Orange Preview and Prediction

The Syracuse Orange appear close to a breakthrough in Dino Babers' third season. Led by a high-powered offense, Syracuse should be in the mix for its first bowl bid since 2013. When healthy, quarterback Eric Dungey is among the best in the ACC. However, Dungey has struggled to stay in the lineup in each of the last three years. (Athlon Sports)

DeCourcy: NCAA's sweeping changes dropped the ball on reforming college basketball

It was entirely fitting that, within the same 24 hours as the NCAA would issue a news release and unleash a cascade of tweets and conduct a 30-minute news conference featuring several members of its senior staff — all to declare a new day in college basketball — would sign a professional contract in Australia, demonstrating how this whole escapade was about 9,000 miles off course.

Re-ranking the 2013 basketball recruiting class

1. Joel Embiid (25): The meteoric rise of “The Process” has been fascinating. Embiid didn’t become a five-star recruit until his senior season of high school. 2. (1): One of the most hyped high school players of the past decade, Wiggins has been debated as much as any player on this list. He's been remarkably durable during his four-year NBA career.

The Hornets’ classic court is so good you’ll want to grab your Starter jacket and hug Grandmama

The Charlotte Hornets are rolling out a special court design in honor of the NBA being 30 years in Charlotte during the 2018-19 season, and it’s perfect. There’s so much to love about the classic Hornets’ court. Hugo at mid-court. The two-tone paint gradient. The key being a hive design. That swoosh that leads to Hugo telling you that he’s the dude who runs the place. (SB Nation)

Trevon Duval 'wasn't going back' to Duke, even if rule changed

The NCAA might have passed a rule that would allow undrafted basketball players to return to college if they chose to, but it would still be up to the player to make that decision. And former Duke guard made no bones about what his decision would have been after this year’s NBA Draft, going to Twitter to give his opinion on returning to the 2018-19 Blue Devils. (247 Sports)

Pittsburgh Football: 2018 Panthers Preview and Prediction

Back-to-back 8-5 seasons gave way to a 5-7 record for Pittsburgh in 2017, although the campaign ended on a high note with an upset of then-undefeated Miami. If Pat Narduzzi's team is to rebound this fall plenty of new playmakers will need to emerge on both sides of the ball. The defense returns seven starters but will have a new coordinator running things. The offense has a solid backfield but questions elsewhere. (Athlon Sports)

Video: Indie Leaguer Uses Trash Can to Tell Ump ‘Go to Your Home’

Brennan Metzger, an outfielder for the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks of the American Association, didn’t like umpire Mike Jarboe’s called third strike and decided to give him a piece of his mind. Metzger launched a string of expletives a mile long—which the field microphone picked up, thankfully—while manager Michael Schlacht held him back. But Metzger wasn’t done there. (Sports Illustrated)
