    I love this. Billy Baron, the star point guard for Canisius, is so calm and poised. You have no idea how much time is left in this game. He knows exactly what he wants to do this entire time, and he does it with deadly accuracy. It’s a lot more nonchalant than his last buzzer-beater.…

    Nov 20, 2013, 11:38 AM EDT

    Marcus Smart

    Marcus Smart put on a show last night. He scored 24 of his 39 points in the first 12 minutes of the game, adding in five steals and two blocks for good measure. Everyone was impressed. Every sports website currently has some kind of column up about how good Smart was and the fact that…

    @CRAFTroomies

    Aaron Craft’s roommates started a twitter account last season called @CRAFTroomies where they document what life is like living with an all-american basketball player who just so happens to be an academic all-american as well. It’s pretty funny. The roommates aren’t afraid to make fun of Craft, and to his credit, Craft plays along. One…

    Jahii Carson

    Jahii Carson went nuts. I’m not really sure how else to explain it. The 5-foot-10 dynamo from Arizona State scored 40 points on 16-25 shooting and handed out seven assists to lead the Sun Devils to an impressive 86-80 win over UNLV at the Thomas & Mack Center. He really did everything you could ask…

    Marcus Smart

    On Tuesday night, each of the nation’s top four freshmen took to the court. Jabari Parker went for 21 points, nine boards and six blocks in a win over East Carolina, a performance that also just so happened to include his second ridiculous, coast-to-coast move of the young season. Kentucky’s Julius Randle had 22 points,…

    Frank Kaminsky

    For the first time since Dec. 28th, 1995, the Wisconsin Badgers broke the century mark on a basketball court. The Badgers shot 62.1% from the floor and hit 12-of-20 from beyond the arc en-route to a 103-85 win over Big Sky contender North Dakota. Impressive, right? Wisconsin has a reputation in basketball circles. They’re slow.…

    Nov 19, 2013, 11:45 AM EDT

    Johnathan Loyd, Marcus Smart

    Since it doesn’t involve freshmen destined to be top five picks and since it’s not being dubbed the single greatest basketball event ever held outside the month of March, but Tuesday night will feature one of the most intriguing matchups of the young season. The No. 11 Memphis Tigers are headed to Stillwater to take…

  15. The issue with Kevin Ware’s court date: the car he was driving

    Nov 19, 2013, 9:00 AM EDT

    Kevin Ware, Rick Pitino

    According to reports, Kevin Ware got a speeding ticket. He was going 95 mph in a 55 mph zone. That’s not good. Kevin Ware then allegedly missed his court date on Monday. That’s even worse. From a legal perspective, Ware messed up. Missing court dates are not what you would call recommended, and I’m sure there…

    No. 9 Syracuse forced turnovers on back-to-back set plays out of timeouts and scored the final ten points as they survived an upset bid from St. Francis NY on Monday night. The final score was 56-50, but in all honesty, the Orange are lucky that they were in striking distance down the stretch. That’s how…

    Belmont v North Carolina

    There’s a lot to be concerned about if you’re a North Carolina basketball fan right now. For starters, they just lost at home to Belmont. As good as the Bruins have been in recent seasons, they are still a team that just won their first game against a top 25 opponent in a decade and…
