    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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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.…

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. 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,…

  11. Adidas crosses line with new sleeved jerseys

    Feb 11, 2013, 7:30 PM EDT

    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…

  12. 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…

  13. Rick Ray isn’t happy with Jalen Steele, at all

    Feb 11, 2013, 6:15 PM EDT

    Mississippi St Tennessee Basketball

    Rick Ray has had a rough season in his first as head coach at Mississippi State. A massive amount of transfers and players going pro, a rash of injuries and a late start on recruiting led to a general lack of talent within the Bulldogs’ program this season. And it got worse when the team…

  14. Foot injury sidelines Antonio Barton 4-6 weeks

    Feb 11, 2013, 5:12 PM EDT

    Antonio Barton

    Memphis guard depth just took a hit. Antonio Barton will be out 4-6 weeks with a hairline fracture in his right foot, the fifth metatarsal, to be exact, though it won’t require surgery. This is according to the Memphis Commercial Appeal. X-rays and an MRI revealed soft tissue damage to the foot. The injury and…

  15. UConn’s Enosch Wolf arrested, suspended following incident

    Feb 11, 2013, 4:28 PM EDT

    Enosch Wolf, Ryan Smyth

    Connecticut will be playing a man down for the foreseeable future as the team announced that forward Enosch Wolf has been suspended indefinitely following an incident early Monday morning on campus. Wolf was arrested at 5:55 a.m. by UConn campus police on charges of third degree burglary, criminal trespassing and first degree disorderly conduct, according…

  16. The Husker Harlem Shake, Tim Miles, and an epic WTF?!?

    I give this to you without comment: I can’t stop laughing.

  17. Pregame Shootaround 2.11.13: Sunflower Showdown heats up

    Feb 11, 2013, 3:19 PM EDT

    Shane Southwell, Angel Rodriguez, Rodney McGruder

    Game of the Night: No. 10 Kansas State at No. 14 Kansas (9:00 p.m. ET, ESPN) We may still be more than a month away from the start of March Madness, but it’s hard to imagine much more riding on a game than there is tonight in Lawrence. The Jayhawks are coming off of a…

  18. Andrew Smith to miss Butler’s next two games with abdominal injury

    Feb 11, 2013, 2:36 PM EDT

    Andrew Smith, Youssou Ndoye

    Andrew Smith will likely miss Butler’s next two games with an abdominal injury that he suffered against George Washington on Saturday afternoon. Here’s the statement from the program: Smith was inadvertently struck in the abdomen during a scramble for a loose ball in the Atlantic 10 Conference game.  He continued to play, but later indicated…

  19. You think the season’s been fun? It gets so much better this week

    Feb 11, 2013, 1:59 PM EDT

    Indiana v Illinois

    The excitement of the college basketball season reached a crescendo last week. It started with Tuesday’s classic between Ohio State and Michigan, which Michigan won in overtime only hours after Arkansas walloped then-No. 2 Florida. That happened to fall on the same night that Michael Snaer hit his third buzzer-beater of the season and Wichita…

  20. Indiana remains No. 1 in new AP poll, falls to No. 2 in Coaches Poll

    Feb 11, 2013, 12:42 PM EDT

    Michigan v Indiana

    I cannot remember a single Monday morning where the topic of who would be the No. 1 team in the country was so wide-open. In a season where there is no “best” team, four of the top five from last week’s poll lost in the past seven days. Kansas lost twice. Duke had a chance…
