    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…

    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…

    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…

    Jan 5, 2014, 7:52 PM EDT

    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,…

    Oklahoma State v Kansas State

    Marcus Smart threw down this huge dunk in transition against Kansas State today, but did it cost his team the game? As you can see in the video, Smart earned himself a technical foul with the dunk, hanging on the rim and slapping the back board. I don’t love that call — it’s really, really…

    Duke v Notre Dame

    Notre Dame had just gone on a 20-4 run to turn a 10 point deficit into a six-point lead as No. 7 Duke had suddenly gone ice cold from the floor. Rodney Hood and Quinn Cook had cooled off after their hot starts and as the clock ticked into crunch time in Duke’s first ACC…

    (Via SB Nation) Yep, that would be Notre Dame guard Pat Connaughton driving down the middle of the lane and dunking all over all-everything forward Jabari Parker. Notre Dame would go on to beat No. 7 Duke 79-77. Jabari Parker didn’t play the final 3:35 despite the game being close, and some were speculating that…

    Eric Atkins, Quinn Cook

    For the first time in 19 games against former assistant coaches, Mike Krzyzewski has been beaten. And while it isn’t necessarily a surprise that it was Notre Dame head coach Mike Brey that did it, it is a surprise that it happened this season.

    No. 2 Syracuse kicked off their tenure in the ACC on Saturday afternoon, taking on Miami (FL) in the Carrier Dome. It was anything but pretty. Miami did everything they could to make the game as slow and as ugly as possible. They never sent more than two guys to the offensive glass in an…

  15. SMU makes a statement, beats No. 17 UConn 74-65

    Jan 4, 2014, 4:40 PM EDT

    SMU UConn

    To get an idea of where we are in college basketball in 2014, think about this: No. 17 UConn playing at SMU is a league game, one where the Huskies taking a 74-65 loss to the Mustangs probably isn’t an upset. Let that sink in for a minute. UConn has won three national titles and…

    No. 10 Oregon arrived in Salt Lake City with a 12-0 record, and their game against Utah represented a significant challenge for a team that until Thursday night had played just one game on an opponent’s home court (Ole Miss). Utah’s 11-1 record may not have been built up against the greatest of competition, but…

    Minnesota had chance after chance after chance, but it just wasn’t their night. Michigan was playing without Mitch McGary.

    NCAA Men's Final Four - Practice

    One of the most controversial topics in college basketball these days is the “free agency” of the transfer market. Depending on who you ask, this is one of the biggest issues plaguing the game. Players leave school before they even have a chance to unpack. Immediate eligibility waivers — whether they are do to hardships…
