    Who are the best college basketball writers out there? I am a junkie.

    Me, of course.

    I'm the best writer on my beat.

    I'm one of the three best on both of our college beats.
  5. A few of my favorites off the top of my head are: Eric Prisbell (WashPost), Dan Wolken (Memphis Commercial Appeal), Ben Bolch (LA Times), Jake Curtis and Rusty Simmons (SF Chronicle), obviously Dick Weiss (NY Daily News), Matt Winkeljohn (AJC), some others I can't remember right now. Heather Dinich (Balt Sun) before she went to ESPN.

    Now I'm only 21, so I haven't read everyone, but those are some of the writers I seem to constantly read when I'm searching for inside looks at various teams, as well as stuff to link to from my own site.

    Isn't Winkeljohn's name Matt?
    And does Heather suck now that she went to ESPN? I would suspect not.
  7. You're right, Winkeljohn's name is Matt, my fault. I'll edit that.

    I wasn't saying Heather sucks now that she is at ESPN; I simply don't read her as much.

    Ah. My bad.
    You ought to read her as much, though.

    I''d agree with marchmadness but add Mike DeCourcy of Sporting News, Pete Thamel of the New York Times, and Jason King of Yahoo!

    Gotta include Wendell Barnhouse at Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Smart and witty, and he is a college hoops junkie himself. Decent player too.
