New Articles at NBE Report, CHN, PFS

Although March Madness All Season gets the majority of his original material, Jeff Borzello, the founder, editor and lone writer of MMAS, also contributes frequently to other websites. Therefore, I've decided to do a weekly links post showing you what other articles and stories I have written besides the ones here at MMAS. So, feel free to click over and check out more of my "expertise."

Big East Basketball Report: "Future is There for St. John's": Although the Red Storm have struggled in recent years, they brought in a deep and talented recruiting class this season. The newcomers have shown their potential but also their inexperience throughout the year. What does the future hold for the rookies -- and, as a result, the St. John's program? I spoke to Red Storm freshmen D.J. Kennedy and Rob Thomas, St. John's head coach Norm Roberts and assistant coach Fred Quartlebaum, as well as an NBA and college scout for the story.

Big East Basketball Report: "Schenley's Kane has Big East Interest": Despite the loss of Big East freshmen D.J. Kennedy and DeJuan Blair, Schenley High School in Pittsburgh has not missed a beat. The Spartans are still ranked in the top-10 in Pennsylvania and have a sought-after senior in guard DeAndre Kane. He originally verbally committed to Duquesne but never signed, and is now getting attention from Pittsburgh and West Virginia, among others. How is the rest of the program progressing after the aforementioned personnel losses? I spoke to former Schenley coach Fred Skrocki for the story. Player of the Week: Davon Jefferson, USC: Jefferson snapped out of a recent stretch of subpar games with a huge 25-point, nine-rebound performance in helping lead the Trojans to an upset win on the road at UCLA. His dunk over Kevin Love in the final seconds helped clinch the win for USC. James Gist of Maryland was among the top runner-ups. Game of the Week: Washington State at Arizona State: In a loaded weekend featuring several interesting interconference games and plenty of marquee conference tilts, this game stands out. Both teams play at a slow tempo, but are going to be tough to beat in March. Can a young ASU team make a statement against a top-ten team? I breakdown each team's key players and tendencies, and also analyze the match-up and discuss three keys for each team in order to win.

Pro Fantasy Sports: Real Deal or Fluke? (Power Conference Report): I've posted this column here frequently in the past, but from now on I'm going to hold off and include it in my weekly round-up of columns. As usual, I discuss and analyze ten players who have had an interesting increase in production recently, and predict whether it will continue or if the player will revert back to his old form.
