Phoenix Suns' Alec Brown: In the Fast Lane

Bright Side of the Sun · July 9, 2014 12:44PM

At the 2014 NBA Draft, the Phoenix Suns selected Alec Brown in the second round, pick number 50, out of UW-Green Bay.

The 7'1" 231-pound center came into the draft with a lot of things to improve on, as do most young, baby-faced prospects. Weight, strength, weight, and especially weight were out in front in terms of elements that are most critical in order for him to have a plausible chance at cracking an NBA rotation. Something that might allow him an opportunity in the league down the road? The kid can stroke it.

Working his way up

Tribune Chronicle · July 7, 2014 08:39AM

Kendrick Perry has dazzled Youngstown State University's basketball fans more than a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Walt Disney World.

The 6-foot shooting guard from Ocoee, Fla., grew up in the shadow of nearby Orlando and the Disney mecca. Now, Perry wants to mystify the mid-major doubters as he starts play today in Orlando Pro Summer League with his hometown Orlando Magic.

VU's Drew has a day to remember at the Cell

Times of Northwest Indiana · July 6, 2014 09:05PM

Valparaiso University men's basketball coach Bryce Drew can take solace in knowing few, if any, major leaguers can hit a 23-foot shot at the buzzer to win an NCAA Tournament game.

"There you go. There you go," Drew said, nodding in agreement.

That should make his one-bounce ceremonial first pitch before Saturday's White Sox-Mariners game a bit easier on the ego.

Top 10 Point Guards -- No. 9 Keifer Sykes

Mike DeCourcy, Sporting News · July 3, 2014 03:25PM

It is not easy for a player at a mid-major program to make an All-American sort of splash. Ask VanVleet, who had to guide his team to a perfect season to get there. Or ask Damian Lillard, who was brilliant two seasons ago — but was brilliant at Weber State, which can get you noticed by the NBA but doesn’t always make you a college hoops headliner.

Sykes has the advantage of playing in a higher-level conference, the Horizon League, and perhaps a field of point guards in which no one is a lock to be a high-major superstar. And Sykes is really, really good. How good? How about 32 points against Wisconsin?
