  1. VIDEO: #DunkCity is back in full effect

    Florida Gulf Coast Eagles Bernard Thompson celebrates the Eagles win over the Georgetown Hoyas in their second round NCAA tournament game in Philadelphia

  2. Report: George Mason to announce move to Atlantic 10 Monday

    Mar 24, 2013, 7:38 PM EDT

    George Mason

    George Mason and the Atlantic 10 sent out simultaneous and cryptic releases on Sunday night, with both scheduling a press conference for a “major announcement” by both the conference and the school. It didn’t take a genius to do the math, and since there have been multiple reports that the announcement will, in fact, be…

  3. Four Naismith Award finalists announced

    Mar 24, 2013, 6:52 PM EDT

    Trey Burke

    If you think it feels like there are 25 different college basketball Player of the Year awards, you’re not that far off. There are six. That doesn’t take into count the countless awards offered up by every .com out there. (For the record, we gave Trey Burke our Player of the Year award.) One of…

  4. No. 1 seed Indiana survives No. 9 Temple, advances to the Sweet 16

    Mar 24, 2013, 5:08 PM EDT

    Temple v Indiana

    There’s a reason that the slogan for the NCAA tournament is ‘survive and advance’. It doesn’t matter how you play. It doesn’t matter how ugly the performance is or how many points you give up to the other team’s star. All that matters is that, when that final buzzer sounds, you have more points that…

  5. Remember Aaron Craft, but don’t forget about the “charge” he drew

    Mar 24, 2013, 3:14 PM EDT

    Iowa State v Ohio State

    Aaron Craft’s shot may be the defining moment of the NCAA tournament so far that wasn’t an alley-oop that sparked a rap video. He’s a kid whose entire legacy is built on the fact that he’s a “winner” that played like garbage down the stretch — two turnovers, 2-5 free throws including two missed front-ends…

  7. Tourney Preview: Will we see another No. 1 seed go down?

    Mar 24, 2013, 7:00 AM EDT

    Villanova v North Carolina

    Yesterday’s schedule looked awesome and was mostly a dud. Today’s schedule? Less exciting than yesterday, which clearly means it’s going to be insanity. I’ll rank the games you need to watch: 1) 5:15 PM (8) North Carolina vs (1) Kansas CBS: Let’s start with the obvious: Roy Williams was the head coach at Kansas. He then…

  8. Late Night Snacks: Recapping tonight’s Round of 32 action

    Mar 24, 2013, 1:42 AM EDT

    Wichita State v Gonzaga

    Before I get into the meat of this post, we need to just go ahead and thanks Butler and Marquette, as well as Wichita State and Gonzaga. Because for much of Saturday — and, for that matter, basically the entire non-Florida Gulf Coast portion of this tournament — the basketball was a complete bore. The…

  9. UCLA rebuts reports that they’ve fired Ben Howland

    Mar 24, 2013, 1:16 AM EDT

    UCLA v Arizona - Quarterfinals

    UCLA released the following statement late on Saturday night: “Contrary to multiple media reports this evening, UCLA has not fired men’s basketball coach Ben Howland.” So I guess that means that this post is wrong? Wrong for now? Did he resign instead of get fired? Is it OK if I don’t care one iota about…

  10. Two freshman guards step up to lead Wichita State to the Sweet 16

    Mar 24, 2013, 12:01 AM EDT

    NCAA Basketball Tournament - Third Round - Salt Lake City

    Wichita State had blown it. After building a lead that grew as big as 13 points in the first half, the Shockers had watched as Gonzaga outscored them 36-15 over a 15 minute stretch that was capped by a 12-0 run. The surge pushed the Zags ahead 49-41. Their all-american Kelly Olynyk was playing like…

  11. Marquette beats Butler as the Bulldogs wind up on the wrong end of Butler Magic

    Mar 23, 2013, 11:04 PM EDT

    Butler v Marquette

    There aren’t two teams in the country that have had more games in recent memory come down to some kind of ridiculous finish. And given that the first two times these teams met, Rotnei Clarke hit a running 25-footer over two Marquette defenders, it only made sense that the ending of Friday’s matchup between the…

  12. No. 12 seed Oregon knocks off No. 4 seed St. Louis, advances to Sweet 16

    Mar 23, 2013, 9:21 PM EDT

    Oregon v Saint Louis

    Damyeon Dotson finished with 23 points on 8-12 shooting, hitting 5-6 from three, while Arsalan Kazemi did a little bit of everything, as usual, finishing with eight points, 16 boards (seven offensive), three assists, two steals and two blocks as the No. 12 seed Oregon Ducks blew out No. 4 seed St. Louis, 74-57 on…

  13. Louisville looked the part of a title contender in blowout of Colorado State

    Mar 23, 2013, 7:46 PM EDT

    Colorado State v Louisville

    The scariest part of No. 1 seed Louisville’s 82-56 win over No. 8 seed Colorado State on Saturday afternoon has nothing to do with the 26 point margin. It has nothing to do with the fact that Louisville scored 82 points on the Rams. It wasn’t that the Cardinals forced 19 turnovers against a team…

  14. Eliminating turnovers, more Keith Appling go hand-in-hand for Michigan State

    Mar 23, 2013, 5:21 PM EDT

    Memphis v Michigan State

    Gary Harris scored 23 points and hit a series of big jumper for the Spartans. Adreian Payne once again boosted his NBA Draft stock with 14 points, 10 boards, five blocks and a few absurdly athletic plays for a 6-foot-11 center with three-point range. Derrick Nix chipped in with 13 points and eight boards while…

  15. It’s now time to see what program tries to pry Shaka Smart from VCU

    Mar 23, 2013, 4:14 PM EDT

    VCU Rams head coach Smart talks with guard Johnson during the final seconds of their third round NCAA tournament basketball game against Michigan in Auburn Hills

    On Saturday afternoon, Shaka Smart’s VCU Rams were knocked out of the NCAA tournament by Michigan, meaning that his offseason has officially begun. And what’s an offseason for Shaka Smart with all kinds of speculation about when he’ll be leaving VCU and where he’ll be headed. In 2011, it was NC State that came calling…

  16. Michigan makes Havoc look Harmless, moves on to the Sweet 16

    Mar 23, 2013, 3:00 PM EDT

    VCU v Michigan

    For the second time in three days, No. 4 seed Michigan made the pundits that earned them “trendy upset pick” status look foolish. On Thursday, the Wolverines shut down South Dakota State and the Fighting Nate Wolters, winning by 15 points in a game that Trey Burke decided not to show up. Saturday’s performance against…

  17. Tourney Preview: The first day of the Round of 32 is LOADED

    Mar 23, 2013, 7:00 AM EDT

    Oregon v Oklahoma St

    Today’s schedule is so awesome that, instead of doing an actual preview, I’m just going to rank the games: 1. 12:15 PM (5) Virginia Commonwealth vs (4) Michigan CBS: No team in the country is better when it comes to forcing turnovers than VCU, as they lead the nation in defensive turnover percentage. But Michigan leads…

  18. Late Night Snacks: Recapping the second FULL day of college hoops

    Mar 23, 2013, 3:11 AM EDT

    Florida Gulf Coast v Georgetown

    TEAM OF THE DAY: Florida Gulf Coast Is there even a conversation here? Florida Gulf Coast didn’t just knock off No. 2 seed Georgetown. The 15th-seeded Eagles spanked them. They won by 10 in a game they were up by 19 points during the second half. There were alley-oops (plural) and tip-dunks. There were clutch…

  19. Can Iowa State capitalize on this sudden relevancy?

    Mar 23, 2013, 1:00 AM EDT

    Iowa State v Notre Dame

    Notre Dame picked a bad time to forget to show up. The No. 7 seed Irish committed 18 turnovers and found themselves down by as much as 27 points to No. 10 seed Iowa State before eventually losing 76-58. And while it ended up being just another in a long line of disappointing tournament performances…

  20. Florida Gulf Coast coach Andy Enfield now more desirable than wife Amanda Marcum?

    Mar 22, 2013, 11:01 PM EDT

    andy-enfield-wife-amanda-marcum

    Andy Enfield just became one of the most desirable coaches in all of college basketball. If you don’t know who that is, he’s the head coach of the Florida Gulf Coast Eagles, the No. 15 seed that just knocked off No. 2 seed Georgetown in the NCAA tournament. The school he’s coaching at? It has…

  21. Georgetown been upset in the first weekend four straight years

    Mar 22, 2013, 9:24 PM EDT

    Florida Gulf Coast v Georgetown

    It wasn’t even a discussion on Friday night: the No. 15 seed Florida Gulf Coast Eagles were far and away the best team on the floor at the Wells Fargo Center in Philly, knocking off No. 2 seed Georgetown 78-68. All the credit in the world must be given to FGCU, who came out and…

  22. Yogi Ferrell leads Indiana past James Madison

    Mar 22, 2013, 7:27 PM EDT

    James Madison v Indiana

    It’s risky to put too much stock into any performance that a No. 1 seed has against a No. 16 seed. Which is why we shouldn’t look too much into the details surrounding Indiana’s overwhelming win over James Madison in the opening round of the NCAA tournament on Friday afternoon. The talent disparity is too…

  23. Why La Salle can be this year’s Cinderella

    Mar 22, 2013, 6:52 PM EDT

    La Salle v Kansas State

    If you’re looking for a Cinderella in this year’s tournament, look no farther than La Salle. Let’s start with the obvious: the Explorers are a No. 13 seed that needed to win their play-in game in order to have a chance to knock off No. 4 seed Kansas State. If your seed has double digits…

  24. Creighton advances past Cincinnati, has a shot to take down Duke

    Mar 22, 2013, 6:06 PM EDT

    Creighton v Cincinnati

    There’s a reason that we call him Dougie McBuckets. Creighton’s all-american forward was too much for No. 10 seed Cincinnati on Friday afternoon, finishing with 27 points and 11 boards on 7-15 shooting as the No. 7 Bluejays outlasted the Bearcats 67-63. This game was one of the more intriguing matchups of the tournament, as…
