About

It's been a while, but I'm back at Bleacher Report, this time as a part-time writer in the Advanced Program in Sports Media. I'll be writing about basketball—both college and professional—and Major League Baseball.

I graduated in May from Binghamton University, where I served as sports editor of Pipe Dream. My work has appeared in Newsday and the Press & Sun Bulletin, and I have covered sports events in professional venues such as Yankee Stadium and Barclays Center.

Please hit me up on Twitter (@Ari_Kramer) if you want to share your thoughts on my Bleacher Report stories.

    Definitely true. Last year's team cleaned up out of conference, I think they were undefeated. And obviously they went on that crazy run in the Big East tourney and NCAA. Lamb definitely hasn't taken that next step and he clearly isn't the game-changer that Kemba was. No leaders and poor chemistry looks to have doomed this year's team (reminiscent of the underperforming, talented team with Rudy Gay).

    Good to know, thanks. Yeah, the whole season has been a joke, especially recently. I was really thinking UConn's defense was going to be one of the best in the nation...the freshmen in particular look terrible.

    Hey Ari, I'm Ryan the top 25 voter. I am pretty new to B/R and I just published a pac-12 article a few hours ago that isn't getting any reads. I got an e-mail saying it got published but I never got one saying that it got edited or anything. Any ideas about what i did wrong? Thanks, man.
