  1. Late Night Snacks: Gators go cold again; unbeatens fall

    Dec 22, 2012, 11:38 PM EDT

    Rodney McGruder

    Game of the Night No. 12 Missouri 82, No. 10 Illinois 73: Phil Pressey shot 2-18 and still led the Tigers to their fourth straight victory in the annual Braggin’ Rights game. His eleven assists found the hot hands, which belonged largely to Laurence Bowers (23 points, 10 rebounds) and Alex Oriakhi (13 and 14).…

  2. VIDEO: Old Dominion stuns Virginia in Governor’s Holiday Classic

    Dec 22, 2012, 9:10 PM EDT

    Virginia Old Dominion Basketball

    Virginia has won eight games in a row, defeating Wisconsin and Tennessee along the way. In fact, it’s fair to say that the Cavaliers (9-3) could conceivably be undefeated today if they’d simply stop scheduling teams from the Colonial Athletic Association. UVA started the season with a loss at George Mason, then lost again to…

  3. No. 12 Mizzou survives No. 10 Illinois, claims Braggin’ Rights

    Dec 22, 2012, 8:36 PM EDT

    Brandon Paul, Phil Pressey

    Phil Pressey dominated the Braggin’ Rights game despite putting up one of the worst shooting nights of his career. Pressey, who goes by the nickname “Flip”, might have changed it to “Chuck” after going 2-18 from the floor. And yet, Pressey proved the truism that a pass-first point guard can change a game without scoring,…

    George Mason Richmond Basketball

    With the score knotted at 64-all, Sherrod Wright of George Mason rose and fired, dropping in a buzzer-beating three-pointer that led the CAA contender over an A-10 team playing in its hometown. Wright led all scorers with 22 points, and the Patriots as a team shot an incredible 61.5% from deep in the close win.…

  5. No. 9 Jayhawks share the ball, beat No. 7 Buckeyes in Columbus

    Dec 22, 2012, 6:34 PM EDT

    Kansas v Ohio State

    Thirty seconds into KU’s trip to Value City Arena, Elijah Johnson dropped the ball off to freshman Ben McLemore, who splashed a long three for the game’s first points. McLemore would go on to score 22 and look like the best player on a floor loaded with stars, but he was hardly the only Jayhawk…

  6. Late Afternoon Snacks: Wolters pantses Lobos in The Pit

    Dec 22, 2012, 6:02 PM EDT

    Wolters Fenton

    Game of the Day Temple 83, No. 3 Syracuse 79: Typically, it takes great shooting to beat the Syracuse zone. Temple, as a team, shot just 39% from the floor. So where did this upset happen? At the line. Owl Khalif Wyatt led all scorers with 33, and hit all fifteen of his free throws.…

  8. Late Night Snacks: Gators beat Gators in our Game of the Night

    Dec 16, 2012, 12:30 AM EDT

    Kenny Boynton, Solomon Hill, Mark Lyons

    Yeah, you read that right. Game of the Night No. 8 Arizona 65, No. 5 Florida 64 – Mark Lyons hit a crazy floater, and Florida kept a timeout in the pocket while going for the last-second shot in an epic comeback at the McKale Center. Arizona was down 64-58 at home when Scotty Welbekin hit…

  9. Loyola wins again in Game of Change rematch

    Dec 15, 2012, 10:21 PM EDT

    Trivante Bloodman, Jeff White

    The first time around, Mississippi State players had to sneak out of the state by boarding a plane in the dead of night. They were running from their own Governor, who was expected to issue an injunction against their intent to play Loyola of Illinois in an NCAA tournament game. The year was 1963, and…

  10. Butler president plays coy about realignment

    Dec 15, 2012, 9:38 PM EDT

    Butler's Brad Stevens goes onto the court against Indiana during an NCAA basketball game in Indianapolis

    Before today’s epic overtime upset of No. 1 Indiana was even in the books, Butler president James Danko was asked the obvious question about his program’s future in the Atlantic 10 conference. According to the Associated Press, his reply was something along the lines of the classic phrasing used when national security is involved –…

  11. VCU blitzes Alabama 73-54, ruins Anthony Grant’s homecoming

    Dec 15, 2012, 6:31 PM EDT

    Shaka Smart

    The story lines didn’t happen by accident. There’s little doubt that Alabama would have never set foot in Richmond in December if Crimson Tide coach Anthony Grant hadn’t felt some love contractual obligation* for the program that gave him his start. Grant guided the Rams to two NCAA tournaments between 2006-09, which led directly to…

  15. Report: CAA tournament moving to Baltimore

    Dec 12, 2012, 2:25 AM EDT

    "LUV" Portraits - 2012 Sundance Film Festival

    Sources have told Jeff Goodman of Eye on College Basketball that the Colonial Athletic Association will move its annual postseason tournament to Baltimore starting in 2014. The move is not particularly surprising. The league was historically heavy on Virginia-based schools, so the Richmond Coliseum made sense as a central location. It was never, as league…

    Dec 9, 2012, 12:31 AM EDT

    Jordan Bachynski, Jason Washburn

    Game of the Night No. 13 Illinois 85, No. 10 Gonzaga 74 – If you had any questions about Illinois, consider them answered. Gonzaga had the clear advantage inside, and the Bulldogs were playing in front of a rabid crowd of faithful fans at the Kennel. Even when Tyler Griffey and Nnanna Egwu fouled out,…

  17. Noreen breaks out as WVU hands Virginia Tech first loss

    Dec 8, 2012, 6:35 PM EDT

    Kevin Noreen

    It was a tight game and a wild ending in Morgantown this evening. Aaric Murray missed one of two line-drive free throw attempts with under a minute left, followed immediately by an absolutely ridic contested three-point make by Robert Brown that gave Virginia Tech a one-point edge. Juwan Staten reversed the lead with a driving…

  19. Kansas empties bench in blowout of Colorado

    Dec 8, 2012, 4:41 PM EDT

    Colorado v Kansas

    Tyler Self scored his first — and so far, only — college basket in the closing seconds of KU’s 90-54 blowout of former league rival Colorado. That’s how bad this one got. Bill Self found double-digit minutes for his B team, with Perry Ellis, Naadir Tharpe and Jamari Traylor logging significant time off the bench.…

    Dec 1, 2012, 10:28 PM EDT

    Cleanthony Early

    Cleanthony Early has been named MVC Newcomer of the Year twice already this season. “Cle” came out of Pine Bush, NY as a slender, lightly recruited kid, blossomed in junior college, and is now averaging 13.9 points, 6.6 rebounds and a block per game as a 6’8″, 215-lb. junior for 7-0 Wichita State.

    NCAA Basketball Tournament - St Louis v Michigan State

    When Rick Majerus decided to take a leave of absence at the beginning of the 2012-13 season for health reasons, the news was concerning. When he announced he wasn’t coming back to the Billikens at all, it was alarming. Now the true extent of Majerus’ health issues has become known. Multiple sources, including Majerus protege…

    Dec 1, 2012, 7:06 PM EDT

    Erick Green, Markel Brown

    We love Oklahoma State here at CBT. We love the team’s grit, the soaring athleticism of LeBryan Nash and the ferocious dunking of Markel Brown. We’re waving the banner of Marcus Smart, who has lived up to his name and his pre-season billing as a fabulous freshman. We haven’t paid much attention to Virginia Tech,…
