    The college hoops season has been centered around talk of freshmen. Andrew Wiggins, Julius Randle, Aaron Gordon, Jabari Parker, Joel Embiid, Tyler Ennis. The list goes on, and while all six of those guys have been, at times, both impressive and aggravating, it goes without saying that they are far from the only noteworthy freshmen…

    Jermaine Lawrence, the prize of Mick Cronin’s 2013 recruiting class, will be out indefinitely with a toe injury. The injury happened in the second half of Monday’s win over Memphis.

    It appears there may be some hi-jinx afoot in Laramie? A weird thing happened at halftime of the New Mexico-Wyoming games last night. According to Lobo beat writer Geoff Grammer, someone sitting on the New Mexico bench noticed a Wyoming staffer messing with the basket that the Lobos would be shooting on in the second…

    Billy Donovan

    It was just three weeks ago that Billy Donovan announced that center Damontre Harris was no longer a member of the Florida basketball team. The South Carolina transfer had been suspended earlier this season and it wasn’t surprising to see him eventually get the boot from Donovan. What was surprising, however, was when Donovan announced…

    Austin Hatch

    For the first time since 2011, Austin Hatch hit a shot in a basketball game. And while that may not sound all that impressive on the surface, you probably don’t know the entire story.

    Ironically enough, the only game between ranked teams on Wednesday night ended being the worst game of the night for the viewer. No. 4 Wisconsin jumped out to a 33-10 lead on No. 23 Illinois in the first 11 minutes, coasting to a 95-70 win in which the Badgers were never once challenged. With the…

    Was it really unexpected, though? Given what we’ve seen North Carolina do this season, was it really surprising that they lost to Miami 63-57 on Wednesday night at home, the fourth straight time the Heels have lost to Miami? Let me spell it out for you: North Carolina has beaten Louisville, Kentucky and Michigan State…

    Ovie Soko is having a bit of a breakout season in his first year at Duquesne, averaging 18.1 points and 8.8 boards. On Wednesday night, he went for 29 points and nine boards in an 87-81 win over Fordham, but that’s not what you’re going to hear about on Thursday morning. This ridiculous, off-the-backboard dunk…

    Senior point guard Grant Gibbs will miss up to four weeks with a dislocated right kneecap. Luckily, there is no ligament damage to the knee. There were initial concerns that Gibbs had torn his ACL or MCL. “It wasn’t as bad as they anticipated,” Gibbs told GoCreighton.com. “It’s just a dislocated kneecap, so no ACL,…

    Jan 8, 2014, 3:10 PM EST

    Air Force v UNLV

    Air Force was not expected to be the worst team in the Mountain West this season. That honor was bestowed upon San Jose State, a team making their debut in the conference while coming off of a 9-20 season as a member of the WAC. But the Falcons were still picked 10th in a league…

    It wasn’t three weeks ago that we were all ready to write off Tennessee for good this season. The Vols had just been pasted by a thoroughly average N.C. State at home, a second straight loss that dropped a team expected to compete for a top three finish in the SEC to 6-4 on the…

    Oral Roberts caught a bad break in what will end up being their second and last season in the Southland Conference. Due to a weird scheduling rule, the Golden Eagles will have to forfeit league games against Abilene Christian and Incarnate Word. Here’s what happened: According to NCAA Bylaw 20.9.8.1, “An institution may schedule and play…

    Anyone that read ‘Play Their Hearts Out’, George Dohrmann’s terrific look into the world of big-time AAU basketball, was rooting for Portland State’s Aaron Moore. The senior forward had been through a lot during his young life, and it looked like he had bullied his way through it all. In his second season with the…

    I mean, the headline really says it all. (Jump to the 1:14 mark for the action.) Pat Miller, the guy doing the dunking in the video, is a name you should keep an eye on. He’s a 6-foot-1 senior averaging 20.9 points. Oh, and he can jump a bit. He would finished with 22 points…

  21. N.C. State upends Notre Dame in South Bend

    Remember all that goodwill that Notre Dame curried when they were able to knock off then-No. 7 Duke in South Bend? Remember how we were all like, ‘Hey, maybe we need to take the Irish seriously without Jerian Grant’? Well, it may still end up being true, but Tuesday night’s performance isn’t promising. The Irish…

    Screen Shot 2014-01-08 at 12.36.36 AM

    This video doesn’t need an explanation as to why it’s awesome. It’s the epitome of what makes college sports great, and I’d be perfectly happy just leaving it at that. I’ll give you an explanation anyway, because it’s interesting enough. The guy leading that ‘Yes!’ chant? It’s Travis Jackson, the center on the football team. He…

  23. The comeback was thrilling, but Ohio State’s offense remains concerning

    Jan 8, 2014, 12:20 AM EST

    Ohio State v Michigan State

    Plenty of people had questions about No. 3 Ohio State entering their game with No. 5 Michigan State at the Breslin Center on Tuesday night. Can a team with such issues on the offensive end of the floor really be the third-best team in the country? Does winning at sputtering Marquette, or beating a depleted…

    Jan 7, 2014, 9:31 PM EST

    DeAndre Kane

    I listed Deandre Kane No. 3 in my Player of the Year Power Rankings earlier today, which turned out to be really convenient timing as Kane put on a show on Tuesday night.
