The Morning Run

It's time for another morning run around the world wide web and bring you some good reads:

Jerry Carino on Rutgers media day

An interesting study showing that rebounding is the most likely basketball activity to lead to injury. This still doesn't explain why Eddy Curry misses so many games.

A great site for all those that love the NBA and have a sense of humor. Oh, and like Canadians

A blog covering Villanova basketball and the Big East, and does a damn good job of it

Hardship waivers will have a big sway on how the Big East season might progress this year, just ask Seton Hall, and ESPN’s Dana O’Neil has a story on how coaches need to take an Advil when dealing with one

SI’s Luke Winn profiles how former Marquette coach Tom Crean is adjusting to Indiana. Despite however Crean has been doing in Bloomington so far, it will be an uphill climb for him. The Hoosiers lost their two best players from last year as DJ White graduated and Eric Gordon left for the NBA. This passage sums up how bad it is:
“When the Hoosiers' assistant coaches, Tim Buckley, Bennie Seltzer and Roshown McLeod, joined us, Crean announced that "we just lost one of our best players" -- and then pointed to McLeod's broken wrist, which was in a brace after a collision with freshman shooting guard Matt Roth. One has to assume that McLeod, who starred at Duke and played four seasons in the NBA from 1998-2002, was by far the Hoosiers' best player in practice.”

The NY Daily News’ Dick Weiss has a quick preview of the MAAC and a good story on one of its coaches

Things are definitely bigger out in Texas, but this is the story of how one Longhorn got smaller

The Washington Post’s Michael Wilbon gives a few reasons to look forward to the new NBA season
