  1. Late Afternoon Snacks: Kansas struggles to beat Texas; Bulldog on Bulldog crime

    Jan 19, 2013, 5:42 PM EST

    Ben McLemore, Sheldon McClellan

    Game of the Day No. 4 Kansas 64, Texas 59: Texas is struggling this season, but the Longhorns are still one of the nation’s most efficient defensive teams. That was enough for them to scare the dickens out of Kansas for roughly 36 minutes. As Daniel Martin wrote earlier today, the tide turned on a…

  2. Late Night Snacks: Working overtime in the Mountain West

    Jan 13, 2013, 12:40 AM EST

    Air Force v UNLV

    Game of the Night No. 16 San Diego State 79, Colorado State 72 (OT): Wonderful, classic game. In the first half, SDSU’s speedy, athletic offense had its way, staking the home team to a 41-23 halftime lead. In the second, Colorado State ramped up their formidable defense and clawed back into it, tying things up…

    They don’t call it the Wild (Mountain) West for nothing. OK, nobody calls it that. But this game was a nail-biter until the waning moments. It took overtime for No. 16 San Diego State to seal a 79-72 win over league rival Colorado State. Jamaal Franklin had 23 points to lead all scorers in this…

    Richmond James Madison Basketball

    Preseason CAA favorite Drexel is now 1-3 in league play, after dropping a road trip to Harrisonburg, VA. The James Madison Dukes laid a 51-43 setback on the Dragons and moved to 3-1 in the Colonial. That puts them in odd company in the above .500 club, alongside Towson and Hofstra, two teams picked to…

  5. Ole Miss 2-0 in SEC after 15-point dismantling of No. 10 Missouri

    Jan 12, 2013, 10:35 PM EST

    BKC-UM-MISSOURI

    They don’t take kindly to strangers down in SEC country. Even if your school recently signed a legally-binding agreement to join said conference. There was certainly a glaring lack of hospitality in Oxford, Mississippi tonight, where the unranked Rebs laid a 64-49 hiding on league newbie No. 10 Missouri in the Tigers’ first inter-league game…

  6. Temple hands St. Louis first loss since death of Rick Majerus

    Jan 12, 2013, 8:16 PM EST

    Khalif Wyatt

    St. Louis has been on an astonishing run since the sudden death of former Billikens coach Rick Majerus. That’s nine wins in a row. Billikens coach Jim Crews claimed, in a recent conversation with CBS’ Matt Norlander, that they hadn’t even given it a thought. Whether they knew it or not, the streak is over.…

  7. Elston Turner scores 40, A&M beats Kentucky at Rupp

    Jan 12, 2013, 6:22 PM EST

    Elston Turner, Willie Cauley-Stein

    Remember when that guy in Titanic shouted “Iceberg, straight ahead!”? That guy should be courtside at Rupp Arena these days. Not only did Kentucky lose in their raucous homeplace again, proving that a December drop to Baylor was no fluke, but they allowed a monster scoring night from a player whose NBA draft stock may…

  8. Late Afternoon Snacks: Wolfpack savages Duke; Temple tests Billikens

    Jan 12, 2013, 6:02 PM EST

    Duke v North Carolina State

    Game of the Day No. 20 NC State 84, No. 1 Duke 76: So, if you were waiting for an answer to the question “how do you beat Duke?”, the answer is “wait for guys to get hurt.” OK, that’s not fair, but Duke did suffer a bit without Ryan Kelly, and when Seth Curry…

  9. One-on-one with Marcus Paige: how little things hurt the Heels

    Jan 7, 2013, 3:00 PM EST

    UNLV v North Carolina

    Football is a game of inches. The hashmarks and yard markers make that pretty obvious. The case can also be made for basketball as a game of inches, though the distinction is more subtle. The Virginia Cavaliers toughed out a 61-52 home win last night — their first ever over the Tar Heels in John…

  10. UVA cools Heels, wins ACC opener

    Jan 6, 2013, 10:51 PM EST

    Reggie Bullock

    Charlottesville — The Tar Heels are used to moving fast. They came into John Paul Jones arena as an unsurprising No. 1 in the nation in adjusted tempo. Virginia, on the other hand, was 343rd in the same stat. It was a classic unstoppable force vs. immovable object kind of game. The game ended up in…

  11. Late Night Snacks: Wildcats survive test, stay unbeaten

    Jan 6, 2013, 12:53 AM EST

    Soloman Hill, Jarred DuBois

    Game of the Night No. 3 Arizona 60, Utah 57: Solomon Hill led all scorers with 19 points and the Wildcats remained undefeated at 14-0. A surprisingly tough Utah squad dictated the tempo of the game and had a chance to send the game to overtime in the final second. Utes guard Jarred DuBois fired…

  12. VCU used five-guard lineup against Lehigh

    Jan 5, 2013, 10:38 PM EST

    Lehigh Virginia Commonwealth

    Basketball fans are worried about C.J. McCollum’s foot. But let’s not forget to give Virginia Commonwealth their due. They notched a hard-fought 59-54 win over another tough non-conference foe tonight. The Rams had a fight on their hands in spite of C.J. McCollum’s absence in the second half due to injury. Lehigh forwards Holden Greiner…

  13. C.J. McCollum: “I broke my foot” [VIDEO]

    Jan 5, 2013, 7:15 PM EST

    Pick 6 Best Players

    C.J. McCollum has missed only one game in his storied career to date. The first — but not likely to be the last — was a December 20th game at North Texas, which his team won without him. He made today’s start against VCU and made it partway through the first half before he attempted…

  14. D’Angelo Harrison wills St. John’s to upset at No. 14 Cincy

    Jan 5, 2013, 7:00 PM EST

    Sean Kilpatrick, D'Angelo Harrison

    St. John’s shot 1 of 9 from behind the three point line in a 53-52 upset of No. 14 Cincinnati. That’s a terrible number. But it was the nature of that one make that illustrated the never-say-die attitude of the invading Johnnies. Sophomore D’Angelo Harrison, playing with four fouls, was double-teamed 30 feet away from…

  15. Late Afternoon Snacks: Marquette nips Hoyas; Lehigh meets VCU

    Jan 5, 2013, 5:19 PM EST

    Trent Lockett, Otto Porter

    Game of the Day Marquette 49, No. 15 Georgetown 48: It was a grind, as a Georgetown game so often can be, but Marquette got two crucial late free throws out of big man Davante Gardner (12 points, 7 rebounds) on their way to a slo-mo upset of G’Town in Milwaukee. Vander Blue also scored…

    Illinois St Indiana St Basketball

    Game of the Night Indiana State 77, Illinois State 75: A couple of the Missouri Valley’s legit contenders squared off in a league game tonight, and the result was pleasingly close.

    American v Kansas

    Game of the Night No. 4 Louisville 80, Kentucky 77: With realignment destroying old rivalries left and right, thank goodness for the river of localized vitriol that keeps this wonderful annual matchup alive. Last time, it was an unplanned Final Four meeting, won by Kentucky on the way to a national title. This time, it…

  21. Gettin’ Jimmer with it: Haws drops 42 on Virginia Tech

    Dec 29, 2012, 11:26 PM EST

    Tyler Haws, Robert Brown

    Obviously, there will never be another Jimmer Fredette. The BYU guard of legend dropped 47 on Utah as a senior, and finished his final season with a 28.9 points per game average even though everybody in the building knew he was getting the ball as often as possible. So, there will never be another Jimmer,…

  22. Canaan goes for 24, but Valpo edges Murray State

    When top contenders from the Horizon League and Ohio Valley Conference meet, there aren’t many TV cameras around, but this one was noteworthy. Murray State’s Isaiah Canaan has been on the national radar since last season, when he led the Racers into the third round of the NCAA tournament. The preseason All-America choice was his…

  23. No. 4 Louisville outlasts Kentucky in foul-plagued rivalry rematch

    Dec 29, 2012, 6:38 PM EST

    University of Louisville's Gorgui Dieng dunks the ball over top University of Kentucky's Alex Poythress and Kyle Wiltjer during the first half of play in their NCAA basketball game a Yum! Center in Louisville

    Kansas survived Ohio State in last week’s Final Four rematch, but the tables were turned in Louisville’s 80-77 triumph over their in-state rivals in the KFC Yum! Center. Russ Smith picked up his fourth foul with over nine minutes remaining in the second half, joining Gorgui Dieng and Peyton Siva on the bench in similar…

  24. Late Afternoon Snacks: Illini survive Auburn’s upset bid

    Dec 29, 2012, 6:00 PM EST

    D.J. Richardson, Tracy Abrams

    Game of the Day No. 12 Illinois 81, Auburn 79: The Illini struggled to score inside over Auburn’s sizable frontcourt, and Tiger guard Frankie Sullivan poured in 5 of 12 from deep in a game that was closer than it rightly should have been. Brandon Paul was a tad turnover-prone in this one, and scored…
