The National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame welcomed two of the sport’s all-time greats as part of its 2014 class on Tuesday.

Four-time NBA champion Shaquille O’Neal and two-time NCAA champion Grant Hill joined Darrell Griffith at the top of a very unique and diverse class. The induction ceremony, which will be held in November, will also see Zelmo Beaty, an NAIA star at Prairie View A&M.

Additionally, two head coaches LSU’s Dale Brown and Maryland’s Gary Williams—both of whom reached the Final Four twice; basketball coach and author Glenn Wilkes Sr. and Five-Star Basketball Camp founder Howard Garfinkle join as 2014 Hall of Fame inductees.

The highlight of the class, however, is Shaquille O’Neal and Grant Hill.

Mock Draft Lottery: Wiggins back at No. 1 Despite Poor NCAA Tournament

3 Comments

Surprisingly, it has only taken one weekend of the NCAA Tournament to knock out my first four projected picks in the NBA draft. It has been six weeks since I did my last Mock Lottery, so expect to see a few changes in the positioning, but the personnel staying relatively the same.

As I have mentioned previously, it is important to note that this list is purely based on the best overall current prospects. Once we know who is picking where and which players decide to stay in school, things will obviously change.

It’s mid-March, and that certainly means it’s time for the NBA to take a backseat to the NCAA Tournament, because, well, there’s just nothing like it.

In the first day and a half we’ve seen four overtime games, two buzzer beaters and several other games come down to the last few seconds. Oh, and Duke lost Mercer.

As the All-Star break and Feb. 20 trade deadline draw near, it’s becoming increasingly clear to the neutral observer which teams are going to compete for the remainder of the regular season, and which teams are content on limping to the finish line.

Their hopes will then rest on securing a high lottery pick in this, the much hyped 2014 NBA draft. It’s been a while between mock drafts here at SheridanHoops since Joe Kotoch’s ‘Very Early Mock Lottery‘ was published, and we thought it was about time we revisit this freshmen- dominant cluster of NBA prospects.

As it stands now, in early February, here is how I see things panning out on the 26th of June.

2 Comments

The NCAA early signing period for basketball ended Wednesday and the big winner was Duke and coach Mike Krzyzewski.

The Blue Devils landed three of the top 15 players in the Class of 2014 and three players pegged to go No. 1, No. 11 and No. 15 in the 2015 NBA draft, according to DraftExpress.com.

With the additions of 6-10 center Jahlil Okafor, 6-1 point guard Tyus Jones and 6-5 wing Justise Winslow, as well as 6-4 shooter Grayson Allen, Duke now has the undisputed No. 1 recruiting class for 2014.
