About the author

Kevin O'Brien has covered basketball since college, starting with his days working for the Gonzaga Bulletin, Gonzaga University's student newspaper.  Kevin appreciates basketball at all levels and uses this blog as a way for him to analyze, understand and share his thoughts about what goes on in the basketball universe beyond the NBA and Major College basketball. His posts are a combination of utilizing scouting techniques he has learned from his experience playing/coaching and advanced statistical analysis garnered from resources such as the D-League stats page, Ken Pomeroy's site, and other international resources (for International ball).

When he is not studying up about D-League prospects, the latest updates from the Euroleague or following FIBA international competition, he is teaching and coaching (usually basketball) at a Catholic elementary school in Kansas City. He is also finishing up his master's degree in education at Rockhurst University, and he also enjoys lower division basketball as well (he spent most of his Spring Break at the NAIA Men's Tournament at Memorial auditorium).
