Meet the Press

Josh Adams  (Founder & Editor)


Josh is the founder of collegehoopsdigest.com and a lifelong college basketball fan. He lives in Brooklyn, NY and can either be found behind a bar or on press row in the NYC area. His first memory of college hoops was watching Villanova upset Georgetown in the 1985 Championship game. He then witnessed the rematch in person at the Philadelphia Spectrum in 1986 that went to three overtimes. He is an avid Duke fan (no apology), and still watches the Lattener shot against Kentucky on YouTube weekly. While never recruited, he is convinced he would lead Division 1 in free throw percentage.Follow him on twitter at @NCAAHoopsDigest

Terry Cook (Maryland Terps Bureau Chief)


A true son of Maryland (You should see him tear into some blue crabs), Terry has been following the Terps since the days of Lefty and Cole Field House. He’s seen the Gary Williams heyday and is a fixture on press row at Xfinity where he is by far the best dressed member of the press.  While not working his day job running a water restoration company, you’ll find him at a poker table, a racetrack or an illegal cockfighting ring. In the off-season he is a critic of the Angelos regime but a diehard Orioles fan. Follow him on twitter at @OccupyEutawSt.

John Fanta (Big East and Seton Hall Reporter)


Hailing from the great city of Cleveland, Ohio, John has matriculated to the east coast and is a student at Seton Hall University. While most of us spent our first semester of college doing keg stands and procuring a fake ID, John instead is a member of the Setonian Newspaper, does a ton of work for PirateTV.com and has quickly established himself as a valuable member of the Seton Hall Community. You can also find him on the Big East Network and Fox Sports.  John is on twitter at @John_Fanta.

Brian Wilmer (Big South Reporter)


Brian Wilmer is a proud native of ACC country and grew up watching the ACC Tournament in afternoon classes in school.  Actually, that may explain a few things.  Brian now lives in the Palmetto State, and can usually be found on press row or in a press box somewhere.  Brian proudly works the Big South Conference beat, with other destinations thrown in for good measure.  Follow Brian on Twitter at @sportsmatters.

Dan Gardella (Sacred Heart and National Hoops)

Reigning from Fairfield, Connecticut, Dan is a sophomore at Sacred Heart University. His fondest basketball memory was watching Kemba Walker’s step back game winner against Pittsburgh. While he loves a well run pick and roll, his love for college basketball is second to none. He hopes down the road, he will become verified on Twitter (being a regular on the Dan Patrick Show will help). Follow Dan on twitter @GardellaDan

Conor Gereg (UConn and National Hoops)

 Sparks flew in 2nd grade when Conor shared his Lunchables with Tony Delk and Walter McCarty while Rick Pitino’s Kentucky Wildcats visited local schools just days before Big Blue won the ’96 title. Beyond college hoops, Conor has been a teacher and coach since 2012, beginning his career in Budapest, Hungary, searching for the next Luka or Dirk, or whatever European star fell into his lap. Instead, Conor developed an unhealthy addiction to doner kebab and gelato. Today, Conor has returned to New England where he was born and lives with his wife, son, and dog who all understand that UConn basketball is appointment television.
