    GAME OF THE NIGHT: No. 13 Cincinnati at No. 12 Louisville, 7:00 p.m. The biggest game of the season in the American will be taking place at the Yum! Center tonight. Cincinnati has been the best team in the conference all year long, jumping out to a 19-2 record and an 8-0 start in league…

    No. 13 Cincinnati will make the trek down to the Yum! Center to take on No. 12 Louisville tonight, and they’ll be doing it at full strength. Justin Jackson, the Bearcat center and the anchor of one of the best defenses in the country, will start tonight. He rolled his ankle and managed all of…

  3. More injury woes for George Washington as Joe McDonald’s hip acts up

    Jan 30, 2014, 8:56 AM EST

    Georgia v George Washington

    George Washington just can’t seem to shake the injury bug. Earlier this year, it was Patricio Garino that missed time. He broke his finger, sat out a couple of games, reinjured the finger during a practice in California for the Wooden Legacy and missed four more games before finally getting healthy and becoming a key…

  4. Nebraska head coach Tim Miles helps a fan propose

    Jan 30, 2014, 8:24 AM EST

    Ohio State v Nebraska

    It’s hard not to love Nebraska head coach Tim Miles. He’s funny, he’s enthusiastic, and he seemingly spends (wastes?) as much time on twitter as the rest of us. He tweets halftime updates during every game he coaches. He’s quick to crack a joke. Essentially, he not like the media-savvy robots that coach most major…

  5. No. 16 Iowa State has lost four of the last five, but should we be worried?

    I’m not sure that No. 16 Iowa State could have played much better than they did on Wednesday night in Lawrence. Georges Niang shook off a horrendous performance in the first game against No. 6 Kansas, finishing with 24 points on 10-for-17 shooting. DeAndre Kane added 22 points and Melvin Ejim finished with 18. The…

  6. Stanford misses a golden opportunity to upset No. 1 Arizona

    Jan 29, 2014, 11:57 PM EST

    Arizona v Stanford

    Mark it down: Wednesday night may be the worst performance you see from No. 1 Arizona all season long. The Wildcats were, quite simply, not good. Stanford’s size was bothering Arizona’s big front line in the paint, Aaron Gordon was forcing things on the offensive end of the floor and Stanford was doing just enough…

    Oregon head coach Dana Altman revealed some potentially significant news on Wednesday afternoon. Johnathan Loyd, who has been the starting point guard for the Ducks for the majority of the season, broke his nose on Tuesday during a rebounding drill. “He caught an elbow and it was just an accident, so he missed practice yesterday,” Altman…

  8. No. 23 Ohio State’s loss to Penn State puts them in deeper hole

    Jan 29, 2014, 9:39 PM EST

    Penn State v Ohio State

    It’s officially time to be worried if you’re an Ohio State fan. On Wednesday night, the No. 23 Buckeyes lost at home in overtime to Penn State, 71-70. It’s their fifth loss in six games, which has dropped them to 3-5 in the Big Ten. The Nittany Lions are better than they get credit for…

    An untimely snowstorm that hit the southern US on Tuesday is going to cause problems for hoops fans looking to watching games played in Georgia on Wednesday night. ESPN2’s broadcast of North Carolina and Georgia Tech has been cancelled, while the Vanderbilt-Georgia game will only be available to stream on GeorgiaDogs.com. As of now, both…

  12. Louisville’s Jones to play, Cincy’s Jackson game-time decision for Thursday

    Justin Jackson

    Perhaps the most interesting game of the week takes place on Thursday evening as No. 13 Cincinnati will pay a visit to No. 12 Louisville. Cincinnati has been the best team in the AAC to date, sitting pretty with an 8-0 record in league play. Louisville was the favorite heading into the season, however, and…

    Back in December, when Kentucky got dropped by North Carolina on their visit to Chapel Hill, I wrote this column and this sidebar taking stock of Kentucky’s status and potential this season. I think it’s worth revisiting now. If you don’t feel like reading through 1,000 words of two month-old writing, here’s a summary of…

    GAME OF THE NIGHT: No. 16 Iowa State at No. 6 Kansas, 9:00 p.m. Iowa State was one of the nation’s most intriguing teams earlier this season, but since Big 12 play started, they’ve fallen off a bit. DeAndre Kane injured his ankle. There was a three-game losing. There was the home loss to (you…

    Auburn and Alabama weren’t the only teams that had their schedule affected by the storm that “pummeled” the south with two or three inches of snow. North Carolina flew into Atlanta Tuesday night for their Wednesday night game against Georgia Tech, but thanks to the gridlock on Atlanta highways, they couldn’t get a bus from…

  20. LSU finally shows up, smacks around No. 11 Kentucky

    Jan 28, 2014, 11:58 PM EST

    Kentucky v LSU

    Where has this LSU team been all season? Seriously. Why have the Tigers shown up and played like this every night out? Why are they losing at Alabama and at Ole Miss? Why did they get drubbed by Tennessee and lose to Rhode Island in the very same building that they mollywhopped No. 11 Kentucky?…
