    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…

  3. 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…

  4. Breslin Center ‘Yes!’ chant is pretty awesome (VIDEO)

    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…

  5. 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…

  6. After beating No. 7 Baylor, just how good is No. 9 Iowa State?

    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. The Iowa State point guard went for 30 points, nine assists, eight boards and five steals while shooting 11-for-18 from the floor…

    Northwestern’s biggest player has decided to transfer. Chier Ajou, a 7-foot-2 native of South Sudan and a cousin of Luol Deng, notified the Northwestern staff of his intention to leave.  “Chier informed us that he would like to seek another institution to continue his educational and playing opportunities,” Collins said in a statement. “We wish…

    Aaron Craft, Todd Mayo

    GAME OF THE DAY: No. 3 Ohio State at No. 5 Michigan State, 9:00 p.m. Well, didn’t we get lucky. In the first day of the year without college football, we get a top five matchup between two football powerhouses. For my money, Michigan State is the best team in the Big Ten right now…

    I hope you weren’t planning on standing in line to get good seats in the Izzone for tonight’s game between Ohio State and Michigan State. If you were, the Spartans probably just did you a favor. According to Kevin Pauga, Michigan State’s Director of Basketball Operations, it’s currently -6 degrees in East Lansing. The wind…

    Fran McCaffery

    As if losing a game at No. 4 Wisconsin wasn’t enough, the Big Ten handed down their punishment for Fran McCaffery’s ejection on Sunday night. The Iowa head coach will be suspended for one game and receive a public reprimand from the conference. The school received a $10,000 fine as well. If you missed it,…

    (Towson Media Relations)

    Towson and point guard Jerome Hairston have officially parted ways, according to a report from ESPN’s Jeff Goodman. The 6-foot-3 sophomore was a member of the CAA all-rookie team after averaging 9.9 points as a freshman, but he was suspended back in late-November for the dreaded violation of team rules. “We have suspended Jerome for…

    Kansas put together one of their worst offensive performances in recent memory on Sunday evening in Phog Allen Fieldhouse. They shot a whopping 29.8% from the floor, hitting just 4-of-16 from beyond the arc while needing a late flurry just to make it look that respectable. In recent games, Kansas has become a team that…

  14. If college hoops had the BCS, who would you want in the National Title game?

    Jan 7, 2014, 9:18 AM EST

    Screen Shot 2014-01-07 at 9.17.40 AM

    Jameis Winston and Florida State beat Auburn for the BCS National Title on Monday night in one of the most thrilling football games that you’ll ever see. Was it the best ever? I’m probably the wrong person to ask, but I feel comfortable saying that there has never been a national title game that was…

  15. Monday’s Pregame Shootaround: Maryland visits Pitt in an ACC showdown

    GAME OF THE NIGHT: Maryland at Pitt, 7:00 p.m. I know you may be more invested in some football game that’s being played tonight, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be some intriguing hoops games on. Maryland and Pitt are in similar situations in that they are both trying to make a name for themselves…

    Stetson’s Willie Green is having a bit of a breakout season in his third year with the Hatters. He’s averaging a career-high 13.9 points and is coming off of a 24-point outburst in a loss against Florida-Gulf Coast. While the loss hurts, Green did show off his athleticism catching defender Nate Hicks sleeping on this…

    For the first time since November 25th, 2007, Duke’s basketball program isn’t ranked in the top ten of the AP poll. Let me say that again. For the first time in 122 weeks — in more than six full seasons — Duke’s slid outside the top ten of the AP poll. That’s the second-longest streak…

  18. With the focus on Fran McCaffery, we’ve overlooked Wisconsin’s dominant second half vs. Iowa

    Jan 6, 2014, 1:19 PM EST

    Adam Woodbury, Nigel Hayes

    No. 4 Wisconsin took down No. 22 Iowa in the first marquee matchup of the Big Ten regular season, erasing an 11-point halftime deficit in the process, and all anyone wants to do is talk about Fran McCaffery’s inability to keep his emotions in check. And to a point, I get it. When a coach…

    North Carolina added another confounding loss to their already confusing resume on Sunday night, digging themselves a 13 point hole on the road against Wake Forest before putting together a comeback that fell a couple of possessions short. Pushing the loss aside, take a look at the dunk that UNC high-flyer J.P. Tokoto threw down…

    Fran McCaffery

    You’ve seen the video by now. Fran McCaffery got himself tossed out of a game last night, bumping an official after getting a technical foul in a game where his team was winning at Wisconsin. On Monday morning, the Iowa head coach sent out a statement. “I want to apologize for my emotional reaction during…

    PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Justin Jackson, Cincinnati The Bearcats could not have asked for a better stop to league play in the inaugural season of the American.

    Michigan State v Penn State

    Last week, I had Michigan State sitting at fifth behind four undefeated teams: Arizona, Syracuse, Wisconsin and Ohio State. This week? I have the Spartans second, jumping them past Syracuse, Wisconsin and Ohio State despite the fact that none of those three teams lost this week. Which probably doesn’t make a ton of sense considering…

  23. Iowa’s Fran McCaffery ejected for bumping official, costs team win at Wisconsin (VIDEO)

    Fran McCaffery

    Fran McCaffery is notorious for having one of the most vicious tempers in all of college basketball, and he exploded on Sunday night. He is perhaps best known for this chair throwing incident. With No. 22 Iowa leading No. 4 Wisconsin 41-39 in the Kohl Center, McCaffery went off again. He was upset about a no-call…

  24. How concerned should Kansas fans be after Jayhawk loss to San Diego State?

    Jan 5, 2014, 8:50 PM EST

    San Diego St v Kansas

    So that was ugly. There really isn’t much else to say about the performance that No. 16 Kansas had in their 61-57 loss to No. 21 San Diego State on Sunday night. The Jayhawks shot 29.8% from the floor, a number that didn’t work its way about 25% until late in the second half. They…

    San Diego St v Kansas

    Xavier Thames was the hero for No. 21 San Diego State. He’s the guy that hit a big three with three minutes left to push SDSU’s lead to 55-48 with three minutes left. He’s the guy that hit four straight free throws in the final minute to ice SDSU’s 61-57 win over No. 16 Kansas,…
