    Jan 22, 2014, 1:16 PM EDT

    Caleb Johnson, Doug McDermott

    The Wooden Award released their Midseason Top 25 list on Wednesday. Most of the names that you would expect to be on there are. But there are some notable headscratchers, at least in my eyes. Andrew Wiggins is on this list. Joel Embiid isn’t. Granted, Wiggins has arguably been better than Embiid if you factor…

  3. Is Michigan State’s inability to get healthy a concern?

    Jan 22, 2014, 12:12 PM EDT

    Adreian Payne

    If Michigan State can find some way to get themselves to stay healthy for three weeks in March, I’m not sure there is anyone in the country that would be more likely to win an NCAA title. Here’s how I look at it: Gary Harris, Adreian Payne, Keith Appling and Branden Dawson are as talented…

    Jimmy Giroux is 10 years old and has already been through more in life than any of us could imagine. He beat leukemia. It took a lot out of him, however, and the disease and corresponding treatments did a lot of damage to his body, including effecting his growth. Which is why what Norwich University…

    This is terrific. Ethan Wragge is the most unique player in college basketball. He’s Creighton’s “center”, but he rarely, if ever, steps inside the three-point line. He’s scored more than 1,000 points in his career and has attempted 53 two-pointers, a fact made all the more wild when you consider that he never stepped beyond…

    Jan 22, 2014, 12:21 AM EDT

    Texas A&M v Kentucky

    It wasn’t always pretty and it wasn’t always exciting, but No. 14 Kentucky did the job they were supposed to do against Texas A&M on a snowy Tuesday night, dispatching the Aggies, 68-51. Billy Kennedy entered the night with a game-plan: to play the game at a snail’s pace, trying to keep the score in…

  10. Gary Harris leads Michigan State to win over Indiana

    Jan 21, 2014, 9:30 PM EDT

    Gary Harris

    For the first 30 minutes or so over the game, Indiana played like a team who was hungrier and wanted to win more than Michigan State. Playing shorthanded without Will Sheehey and coming off of a loss to Northwestern over the weekend, the Hoosiers figured to stand little chance against the No. 3 team in…

    Jonathan Holmes

    Remember when we were all laughing about Texas because Rick Barnes was so totally about to be fired and, like, he didn’t even know, bro? Because Texas was going to be awful, right? So much for that. After starting Big 12 play 0-2 with losses to both of the Oklahoma schools, the Longhorns have now…

    Alex Rosenberg

    In most years, the Ivy League is nothing more than a blip on the radar of the college basketball scene. This year, however, is unlike most years. Harvard garnered national attention even prior to the season beginning after defeating New Mexico in last year’s NCAA Tournament and returning two of their top players in Kyle…

    GAME OF THE NIGHT: Indiana at No. 3 Michigan State, 7:00 p.m. Indiana is coming off one of the weirder stretches we’ve seen from any team this season.

    First things first: the trick shots here are awesome. Jay Bilas isn’t kidding around, Oklahoma walk-on James Fraschilla is the best there is. Just check out the shot he made at the 1:12 mark. It’s ridiculous. But the best part is that he’s using the attention that the video gets to raise awareness and money…

    Connecticut v Memphis

    1. Doug McDermott, Creighton: At this point in the season, I probably don’t need to do much more than simply write McDermott’s name here. Everyone else is battling for second-place. It doesn’t matter how you break it down: McDermott is the second-leading scorer in the country; he’s the highest-usage weapon in the nation’s most efficient…
