- The Carrier Classic will be back next year, it just won’t be in San Diego. That’s a shame, because the climate and beautiful  dusk sunset provided for a fantastic and unique environment

- I don’t usually read bubble breakdowns, but when I do, I read Andy Glockner’s

- Marquette-transfer Jerron Maymon has become the most consistent play for the Tennessee Volunteers. Cuonzo Martin’s squad is progressing very nicely in year one, and should be much improved come next year

- Baylor has been written off as being one of the elite teams. That being said, they will be an interesting team to keep track of over the course of the next few weeks

- The importance of Xavier’s Kenny Frease is often swept under the door. When he plays aggressive and assertive, as he did much of last season, the Musketeers are a significantly better team

- John Calipari takes to his personal website in order to dispel the “Great Myth of Kentucky”

- Are you opinionated? Rush The Court certainly is. They break down what they love and what they hate from this past week in college hoops

- Butler began it’s march towards a third straight National Championship appearance with a victory over Wright State. Prior to the game, Ronald Nored was named as the Horizon League’s Defensive Player of the Year. He became the first player in conference history to win the award twice

- Maize’n’Brew provides some fantastic statistical analysis of the Wolverines’ 3-point dependency

- Oregon’s Garrett Sim is embracing his role as “the bad guy”. The senior guard got caught in a slight altercation with Oregon State’s Jared Cunningham, and Beaver fans didn’t hold back

- The reigning and defending National Champions are now firmly entrenched on the bubble after losing to Providence last night

- Jeff Eisenberg makes a side-by-side comparison of the two leading candidates for the national PoY award

- George Dohrmann, the author of “Play Their Hearts Out” and a key contributor to the Ohio State scandal reports, is working on an expose on UCLA basketball. This is not good news for the Bruins. Not good news at all.

- Miami continues to make headlines. Reggie Johnson was reinstated by the NCAA after being ruled ineligible last Sunday, and head coach Jim Larranaga questioned the resumes of some mid-major bubble teams

- Ken Pomeroy is keeping a running tab of the teams that still have a chance at winning a regular season championship

- Only a Northwestern blog would keep a running list of teams still in play to make the NCAA Tournament for the very first time

- This shouldn’t come as a huge surprise, but attendance numbers are way down in the ACC this season.

- Big Apple Buckets provides a prediction for the America East Tournament

- Ryan Divish put together a great article on the top candidates for the Pac-12 Coach of the Year award

- If you want a “one-stop-shop” for tournament primers, you should read Myron Medcalf’s work

- A team-by-team preview of the West Coast Conference Tournament

- Ten years ago (and close to 100lbs ago) Michael Sweetney was an All-American power forward at Georgetown.  This is not what former-All-Americans are supposed to look like
