USC men’s basketball at pivotal point before postseason

USC men’s basketball is the midst of its worst stretch of the season. Granted, the 19th-ranked Trojans have set the bar high with a 19-5 record and 13-4 mark in the Pac-12. But Thursday’s 18-point loss to Colorado marked the first time all season USC has lost two of three games. This is not to say it’s time to panic about USC; that would be an overreaction, especially given the most recent defeats came at the hands of two of the Pac-12’s best teams. But the Trojans have reached a crossroads at t...

Picking the Men’s NCAA Tournament Field: February 23rd Edition

Photo by Scott W. Grau/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images Updating from last week, various people on the NCAA Tournament Committee have further clarified/walked back the idea of using the Pairwise this year to specify that they meant they’ll use it within each conference to determine the rankings of that conference. Which is terrific, but not entirely helpful since, with an exception or two, that’s already pretty easy to do. The real difficulty in this process is going to be de...

For students of color, online racism leads to real-world mental health challenges

For college students of color who encounter online racism, the effect of racialized aggressions and assaults reaches far beyond any single social media feed and can lead to real and significant mental health impacts - even more significant than in-person experiences of racial discrimination, according to a recently published study from researchers at UConn and Boston College.

UConn researcher offers lessons learned from a pre-pandemic study of telemedicine use

With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, telemedicine has become a new norm for many routine and non-emergency medical needs. But there are lessons to be learned from telemedicine's use - or lack thereof - prior to the pandemic, and a new study from a UConn School of Social Work researcher offers insight for policymakers, administrators, and public health officials when considering the implementation of new services.

USC men’s basketball has no more room for error in conference title quest

In one Saturday, all of USC’s room for error disappeared. With the 17th-ranked Trojans’ 81-72 loss to Arizona and UCLA’s 80-79 win over Arizona State, USC lost its solo grip on first place in the Pac-12. Instead, the Trojans and Bruins are tied at 12-3. So USC has five games left to play, including a finale against UCLA, with no margin left for missteps if the Trojans (18-4 overall) are going to win their first regular-season conference title since 1985. The tightrope walk begins with this three...

Picking the Men’s NCAA Tournament Field: February 16th Edition

Matt Christians/SBN College Hockey It moved! Insight into NCAA for selecting the men’s hockey tournament.

Taking a Guess at the Men’s NCAA Tournament Field: February 1st Edition

These guys are probably fine. We’re now down to just 50 days until the field is supposed to be selected for the 2021 men’s ice hockey tournament. Obviously it’s a weird year and the Pairwise can’t be used with almost zero interconference data points. But if this tournament is going to be played—and even if this year feels like nothing like a normal year and will probably forever carry an asterisk, I still hope it is played for the players’ sake—somebody is somehow going to ha...
