  • Dallas Morning News: Rhyle McKinney of state champion Argyle commits to SMU for basketball

    After leading the Argyle girls basketball team to its fifth consecutive Class 4A state championship, Rhyle McKinney announced on Twitter on Thursday that she has orally committed to SMU.

    I'm super excited to announce that I have committed to play basketball at SMU! I would like to thank God, my family, coaches and teammates for helping me with it all, and I couldn't be more excited to be a Mustang!! #PonyUpud83dudd35ud83dudd34

    McKinney was the District 8-4A MVP, an all-state selection and a first-team All-Area pick as a junior last season.

  • Klay Thompson's injury and return sends Twitter into a frenzy

    Golden State Warriors forward Klay Thompson was in the middle of putting together another epic "Game 6 Klay" performance -- 28 points on 8-for-12 shooting late in the third quarter -- when he went down hard after being fouled on a dunk attempt, silencing the Oracle Arena crowd. After having witnessed Kevin Durant go down for the season with a ruptured Achilles in Game 5, fans and fellow NBA players feared the worst as Thompson went back to the locker room.

    This is awful.

    -- Rachel Nichols (@Rachel__Nichols) June 14, 2019

    It was his left knee.

  • Durant undergoes surgery for ruptured Achilles

    Kevin Durant posted Wednesday on Instagram that he did rupture his Achilles and has undergone surgery to repair the injury." data-instgrm-version="12">

    What's good everybody I wanted to update you all: I did rupture my Achilles. Surgery was today and it was a success, EASY MONEY My road back starts now! I got my family and my loved ones by my side and we truly appreciate all the messages and support people have sent our way. Like I said Monday, I'm hurting deeply, but I'm OK. Basketball is my biggest love and I wanted to be out there that night because that's what I do.

  • Dallas Morning News: Former SMU point guard Jimmy Whitt announces he will transfer to Arkansas

    UPDATE (3:24 p.m., May 27): Just days after entering the NCAA transfer portal, former SMU point guard Jimmy Whitt has decided on transfering to Arkansas. The graduate transfer announced his decision on Twitter.

    Whitt, who transferred to SMU after his freshman season with the Razorbacks, has been given the rare opportunity to play at a former institution once again.

    The decision comes the day after Whitt tweeted he was weighing the options of returning to SMU or transferring elsewhere.

    Per CBS Sports college basketball analyst Jon Rothstein, Whitt had also received interest from Virginia Tech, Gonzaga, Oregon, and Texas A&M.

  • Dallas Morning News: Michael Jankovich, son of SMU head coach Tim Jankovich, invited to walk-on at Kansas

    The son of SMU head coach Tim Jankovich and a former Dallas-area basketballer will play college hoops at Kansas.

    Michael Jankovich became the latest Jayhawks commitment on Saturday. The 6-5 shooting guard will reportedly join the program as an invited walk-on, per the Kansas City Star's Gary Bedore.

    According to, Utah State was Jankovich's only reported offer.

    Though once speculated, the idea of Michael playing under his father on The Hilltop never gained more traction as time went on. After all, the Jankovich family had strong ties to basketball in Kansas before Tim Jankovich took the reigns of the Mustangs from Larry Brown.

  • Dallas Morning News: Report: SMU point guard Jimmy Whitt enters NCAA transfer portal

    It appears that one of SMU's top players still intends on leaving the program.

    After declaring for the NBA Draft in March, point guard Jimmy Whitt has now entered his name into the NCAA transfer portal. The decision was first reported by ESPN's Jeff Borzello.

    Whitt will be a graduate transfer, making him immediately eligible.

    Whitt, who averaged a team-high 35 minutes per game this season, was a major contributor for the Mustangs and SMU's leader at the point. Whitt averaged 12.3 points per game, and team-highs in rebounds per game (6.4) and assists per game (4).

  • How Golden State reclaimed its juggernaut style

    It has been a popular parlor game among league executives all season: How good will the Golden State Warriors be if Kevin Durant leaves?

    You can't draw a direct line from the 73-win Warriors -- the last pre-Durant version -- to the theoretical 2019-20 team. Harrison Barnes is gone. Andre Iguodala, dunking and stripping the ball and prancing all over these playoffs, is 35. Shaun Livingston is in the final stages of a wonderful career. Their low first-round picks haven't yielded much in the way of starter-level contributors -- the cost of greatness.

  • Dallas Morning News: Report: SMU basketball selected for American/SEC challenge; Mustangs schedule two marquee home-and-home series


    SMU Mustangs logo.

    It's been a busy week for SMU basketball in the scheduling department.

    Last season, the Mustangs' non-conference strength of schedule placed 319th out of 353 Division I basketball programs, per

    It's hard to reach the NCAA Tournament with a non-conference schedule so weak. For reference, only three teams with a non-conference SOS lower than SMU's went dancing in 2019 -- Virginia Tech, St. John's and Old Dominion.

    And it appears that the Mustangs are trying to improve.

    Per a report from CBS Sports college basketball analyst Jon Rothstein, SMU will be one of four American Athletic Conference teams paired with SEC opponents in the upcoming seasons.

  • The sour science driving James Harden's vexing genius

    The Houston Rockets deserve a massive amount of credit for uncovering and implementing the most analytically correct strategies in professional basketball. Whether it's their shot selection or offensive design, the team has aligned its on-court behaviors with the game's most efficient actions. However, as Houston continues to chase the efficiency dragon farther down the trail, it's worth asking: Is this endless quest for efficiency good for basketball?

    From an analytical perspective, the trio of GM Daryl Morey, head coach Mike D'Antoni and superstar James Harden have coalesced to form the shrewdest offense in the NBA.
