  2. ‘The McLemore’ is becoming a thing, and that’s good for everyone

    Feb 12, 2013, 1:47 PM EDT

    Kansas State v Kansas

    Until Marshall Henderson’s braggadocio was captured in a moment of internet brilliance, the defining GIF of the college basketball season was Ben McLemore, dancing his way through the Kansas locker room after the Jayhawks knocked off Ohio State in Columbus. Well, on Monday night, McLemore struck again. After scoring 30 points in an 83-62 win…

  4. Georgetown’s ‘Stonewalls’ unveil soccer-style banner supporting Catholic 7

    Feb 12, 2013, 11:58 AM EDT


    Georgetown isn’t exactly known for their raucous home court atmosphere. They play their home games at the Verizon Center, an NBA arena that seats 20,000 and is located almost four miles from campus. Seeing as the Georgetown neighborhood in DC doesn’t have a metro stop, it can be quite a pain to get from campus…

    James Michael McAdoo, Kenny Kadji

    Miami basketball fans got a bit of a scare last night when Michelle Kaufman, who writes for the Miami Herald, tweeted out the following bit of news: Bad news for No.3 #UM: Kenny Kadji injured his shoulder in practice today. Coach Larranaga said they will know more tomorrow. @miamiherald — Michelle Kaufman (@kaufsports) February 12,…

  6. Did Buzz Williams’ technical cost Marquette?

    Feb 12, 2013, 11:25 AM EDT

    Buzz Williams

    There are a couple of standards rules that every journalist has ingrained in their consciousness from the first day they open up their computer and launch a blog on WordPress: – There’s no cheering on press row. – The team name is singular. The nickname is plural: Kansas lost its third straight game because the…

    Feb 12, 2013, 8:57 AM EDT

    Kenny Kadji

    Healthy and playing some sugar-sweet basketball, the Miami Hurricanes are the latest team to grab a No. 1 seed in our latest bracket.  Miami sits atop the East Region.  Despite a last-second loss at Illinois, Indiana remains the No. 1 overall seed thanks to an impressive road win at Ohio State on Sunday.  Michigan and…

  10. Late Night Snacks: Kansas rolls, Hoyas take hold in the Big East

    Feb 12, 2013, 12:26 AM EDT

    Ben McLemore, Martavious Irving

    A decent slate of games was highlighted by two Top 25 battles in both the Big East and Big 12. The SWAC and MEAC were in full effect and Quinnipiac/Central Connecticut State and Bryant/Sacred Heart were postponed after the winter storm that hit the northeast over the weekend. As far as news, we got word…

  11. Kansas proves losing streak was a result of confidence issues

    Feb 11, 2013, 11:48 PM EDT

    Kansas State v Kansas

    Kansas was never “not good enough”. The three game losing streak they battled through? That embarrassing loss to TCU? Their first three game losing streak since 2005? Their first losing streak — period — since 2006? That was never a result of Kansas being bad or Kansas being anything other than the Big 12 favorite…

  12. Even with the upper hand, Kansas State can’t beat Kansas

    Feb 11, 2013, 11:47 PM EDT

    Kansas State v Kansas

    Kansas State, this is when it had to happen. The Wildcats are in the Top 10, they’re heading to play a team that has lost their last three games, one of which was TCU, and had zero confidence in themselves. In the biggest rivalry game of the season for both teams. You are going into…

  13. Oklahoma’s Buddy Hield fractures foot, out 4-6 weeks

    Feb 11, 2013, 10:08 PM EDT

    Buddy Hield, Naadir Tharpe, Jeff Withey

    Right foot, fifth metatarsal fractures. They’re spreading like the plague. The same day that a report comes out that Memphis’ Antonio Barton fractured the fifth metatarsal in his right foot, Oklahoma announces that freshman guard Buddy Hield suffered the same injury in a victory over TCU, 75-48, and is also expected to miss 4-6 weeks.…

  14. Vander Blue’s scoring will dictate Marquette’s finish

    Feb 11, 2013, 9:43 PM EDT

    Jamee Crockett, Vander Blue

    There’s no real question that Vander Blue is the primary scorer for Marquette. His 15 points per game justify that. Monday night at Georgetown, Blue scored seven on 3-of-9 shooting in a 63-55 loss to the Hoyas, his worst scoring output in Big East Conference play and lowest overall since a six-point in a 49-47…

  15. Georgetown beats Marquette, finally controls Big East destiny

    Feb 11, 2013, 9:33 PM EDT

    Otto Porter Jr., John Thompson III

    The Georgetown turnaround has become one of the nation’s most intriguing story lines. Here’s a team that struggled to break 40 points throughout much of December, dropped to 0-2 in the Big East when they were pounded by Pitt at home and lost their second-leading scorer and most versatile defender to academic issues when the…

  16. Myck Kobongo ready to get back to the court

    Feb 11, 2013, 9:06 PM EDT

    North Carolina Texas Basketball

    It’s been a long 23 games for Texas’ Myck Kabongo. After being found to have committed NCAA violations involving an off-season training trip to Cleveland, then lying to university officials about it, Kabongo was given a suspension, then it was finally given a tag of almost three-quarters of the season. Needless to say, the Longhorns…

  17. Travis Jorgenson commits to Brian Gregory and Georgia Tech

    Feb 11, 2013, 8:05 PM EDT

    Brian Gregory

    It’s been an stagnant year for second-year coach Brian Gregory at Georgia Tech — wins over  St. Mary’s and Virginia, but no real marquee wins — but he got some good news with the commitment of guard Travis Jorgenson on Monday night. The news came from multiple outlets. Travis Jorgenson just committed to Georgia Tech,…

    Kansas v West Virginia

    Today, it was announced by Adidas that they’ll be unveiling a new type of jersey — well, depending on when you grew up, maybe old-school type — with a compression-sleeve alternate uniform that the Golden State Warriors will play in in the near future. You really should click that link to see these jerseys. The…

  19. Bubble Banter: Illinois, Oklahoma this week’s big winners

    Feb 11, 2013, 7:00 PM EDT

    Indiana v Illinois

    With just over a month until Selection Sunday, it’s time to take a look at the current NCAA bubble.  It’s a bit crazy – especially with teams like Kentucky and North Carolina missing from “lock” status.  We also have teams like Virginia - whose resume features quality wins, head-scratching losses, and a weak strength of schedule.  How will the Selection Committee…
