Is today the day a college basketball team from the New York metropolitan area wins an NCAA tournament game for the first time in 14 years? If not, it would not surprise me to see Kevin Willard fired at Seton Hall. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. [Read more…]
July 28, 2019 — An investor has come forward to reopen this site. There is not enough original content on the Web, and if all goes smoothly in the legal department, we will be backatha with a full staff by the 2019-20 season … or sooner. With a mix of sadness and pride, I am shuttering SheridanHoops.com — the Web Site I founded in September 2011 and which published daily through five NBA seasons. I come from a family of journalists, and

Steve Kerr says the Golden State Warriors are “all in” on trying to break the Chicago Bulls’ record for most wins in a season — 72. Kudos to Kerr for being honest – and for trying to make history for a second time. Don’t forget, Kerr was a player on the 1995-96 Bulls team that went 72-10. Most coaches would say “it doesn’t matter” – and they’d be lying through their teeth. But Kerr is a straight shooter (pun intended), and
LeBron James supposedly unfollowed the Cavs on his Twitter and Instagram accounts. And this is major news. You know, in this business all journalists are supposed to be neutral.
