    This is solid work from Purdue freshman Basil Smotherman, although it’s not the first time that we’ve seen him here on POSTERIZED. Remember this? At least this time it’s not Boilermaker on Boilermaker violence. (MORE: Watch all of this year’s #POSTERIZED’s here)

    Nov 19, 2013, 9:00 AM EST

    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…

    Nov 18, 2013, 2:45 PM EST

    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…

    Villanova v North Carolina

    North Carolina struggled from the free throw line on Sunday night, hitting just 22-of-48 from the charity stripe. That’s one of the biggest reasons that the No. 12 Tar Heels lost to Belmont, which means that the MVP of Belmont’s win may not be J.J. Mann — who had 28 points and hit three straight…

    It didn’t take long for No. 7 Michigan to look like they were overrated heading into a season where they will be replacing their starting back court from a year ago. The Wolverines went into Ames, IA, and experienced Hilton Magic first hand, losing to Iowa State 77-70. Nik Stauskas had 20 points and six…

    Andrew Harrison

    Kentucky is currently in the process of exacting their revenge on Robert Morris in dominating fashion, so losing out on the three points they would have gotten off of this 3/4-court prayer from freshman Andrew Harrison isn’t going to hurt them. But it doesn’t change the fact that it’s an awesome, ridiculous shot. It’s also…

    Jack Taylor caught fire on Friday night, going for 71 points as Grinnell College, a Division III school, knocked off Finlandia. Well, that performance looks downright pedestrian after Taylor went for 109 points on Sunday.
