Harvard debuts in AP men’s poll at 8-0 under Tommy Amaker

When Tommy Amaker was head coach at Michigan, the fans said he could not coach.

Well, in his fifth year at Harvard University, the former Duke basketball star has his team amongst college basketball’s elite.

The Crimson, at 8-0 and a win over then-ranked Florida State, joins four other teams in the recent AP top 25. Georgetown, Illinois and Creighton have been there before, but not Harvard.

Amaker guided the Boston area school to its first Ivy league title last season.

Harvard is the first Ivy League school to be ranked since the Princeton Tigers move into the top 10 in the 1997-98 season.

The only other Ivy League school to be ranked since 1970 is Pennsylvania, which last visited the polls in January 1995.

Brown University is the only school from the Ivy League not to ever make the polls.

Hoiberg leaves the Minnesota T-Wolves for his alma mater

compiled from staff and wire reports

Iowa State University of the Big 12 Conference has brought back “The Mayor” for a second stint in Ames, and the Cyclones are optimistic that Fred Hoiberg still has the magic touch he show so often as sharp-shooting star at Hilton Coliseum, home of Iowa State.

Hoiberg, known as “The Mayor” during his playing career, replaces Greg McDermott, who left Iowa State after four seasons to take over as head coach at Creighton.

Hoiberg, who was the vice president of basketball operations for the Minnesota Timberwolves, is widely regarded as one of the most popular players  in Iowa State history.

A high school star from Ames High, Fred Hoiberg scored nearly 2,000 points for the hometown Cyclones from 1991-1995. He spent 10 seasons in the NBA with the Pacers, Bulls and Timberwolves before an issue with his heart forced him to retire in 2006.

An interesting point involving Hoiberg is that while he was involved in collegiate scouting with Minnesota, he’s never been a head coach. He will be inheriting a program with a boat-load of problems including four straight losing seasons and was hit hard by player defections right after the recently completed season.

Iowa State star Craig Brackins declared for the NBA draft, and another standout Marquis Gilstrap had his appeal for an extra season of eligibility denied by the NCAA. Three other players, including starting center Justin Hamilton, have announced plans to transfer.

Greg McDermott, also a popular native Iowan, led Northern Iowa to three straight NCAA tournaments but just couldn’t get Iowa State moving out of the bottom half of the Big 12 Conference. He was only 59-68 and felt more comfortable coaching in the Missouri Valley Conference where Creighton University plays and also his former team, Northern Iowa.

Oregon selects Creighton’s Dana Altman

compiled from staff and wire reports

Multiple media outlets around the country are reporting that Creighton coach Dana Altman has agreed to take over at Oregon.

Fox Sports was the first to report that Altman had been hired to replace Ernie Kent, who was dismissed in March after 13 seasons at his alma mater.

Altman has spent 16 seasons at Creighton, which is located in Omaha, Nebraska. He has a record of 327-176. He led the Bluejays to 11 consecutive 20-win seasons before they went 18-16 this year.

Altman also went 68-54 in four seasons as Kansas State’s head coach from 1990-94.

The 51-year-old Altman was selected after the Eugene, Oregon school couldn’t lure Tubby Smith of Minnesota or Mike Anderson of Missouri to take the job.

The Oregon Ducks went 16-16 overall, 7-11 in the Pacific 10 Conference this past season.
