Thoughts From the Homecoming Basketball Scrimmage

Tags : 

Apologies.

I went missing in action like Pitino’s assistants with their bags of Adidas money.

 

(In actuality, I’ve been swamped by school stuff. I’ve said it before, but engineering is no joke. My back to back tests earlier today went about as well as that Tulane game…)

 

Anyways, I’m back. At least for this article. Hey guys.

Thoughts On Tulsa’s New Basketball Uniforms

Tags : 

When the football team released their new Adidas uniforms last summer, it was done in an extravagant manner; fancy banquet, hip-hop music video, and fabulous models.

Yesterday morning, Tulsa basketball released their new uniforms using a different, more inauspicious approach. In a series of three tweets starting at 10:30 AM and ending at noon, Frank Haith unveiled the new white, blue, and black uniforms.

Questions During a Rollercoaster Season

Does anyone remember Bell’s Amusement Park? As a Tulsa lifer, I remember going there many times. Those who have lived here for a while definitely recall Zingo, the park’s main roller coaster.

 

Bell’s and Zingo may be gone, but anyone who has followed Tulsa basketball this year has likely felt the same pitfalls in their stomachs.

Game Preview: Memphis

Tags : 

This Wednesday the 7-7 (1-1) Tulsa Golden Hurricane will host the 12-4 (2-1) Memphis Tigers. Tulsa is coming into this game reeling a bit, losers of 3 of their last 4 games, including a close 61-64 loss to Houston last week, while Memphis, winners of 3 straight, seem to be playing their best basketball of the season. The Tigers thumped a good South Carolina team 70-56 to close nonconference play, and have followed that up with a 9 point win over UConn, and a 21 point beat down at Tulane.

Previewing AAC Hoops for 2016-17

Tags : 

As of writing this piece, this fine Christmas Eve eve evening (I’m clever, I know…), Tulsa has one game left before beginning American Athletic Conference play. Tulsa sits at 6-5, with a clear upward trajectory shining golden through the early season murkiness. Improvements across the board, clear from both the box score and the eye test, make this an encouraging season for this Hurricane team that’s as new as what’s under your tree this year. Although we have briefly covered the new players here, and talked about the tournament TU is in the midst of right now here, we have only just gotten full swing—or full shot, perhaps—into basketball season. Tulsa is the reigning Miami Beach Bowl champion, and now it is time to finally shift our eyes from the gridiron to the hardwood.

New Player Comparisons for the 2016-17 Basketball Team

Tags : 

After watching two exhibition games and one “real” game, I’ve had a bit more time to learn about this year’s Tulsa’s men’s basketball team. These are my updated my player comparisons. They aren’t perfect, and were mainly scribbled on napkins in much the same way that J.K. Rowling supposedly first wrote out her ideas for Harry Potter. Except, instead of napkins, I used a smartphone. Anyways…

A Way-Too-Early Look at AAC Hoops

The 2016-2017 season should be an exciting year for the Golden Hurricane. After losing nine (yes, nine) seniors and four starters to graduation, Golden Hurricane hoops will have a lot of new faces making major contributions.

Player Comparisons for the Incoming Basketball Class

Tags : 

Comparisons are the backbone of sports discussion (and argument).

 

Bird or Magic. Brady or Manning. Team USA 2012 or the “Dream Team”. The list grows every season.
