  1. Late Night Snacks: Teams do harm to NCAA tournament resumes on Super Bowl Sunday

    Feb 3, 2013, 11:01 PM EDT

    Austin Hollins, Kendal Shell

    Game of the Day: No. 23 Minnesota 62, Iowa 59  The Golden Gophers found a way to win at home, as Austin Hollins’ three-pointer with 11.6 seconds remaining gave Minnesota a 60-59 lead. Two things that stand out from this one: Iowa allowing a needed resume-building win slip from their grasp and the lack of…

  2. Surprising Kansas State relies on defense to outlast Oklahoma

    Feb 3, 2013, 8:34 PM EDT

    Shane Southwell, Angel Rodriguez, Rodney McGruder

    When Kansas State hired Bruce Weber to replace Frank Martin last spring, some panned the move with the idea that the man who failed to get the Fighting Illini back to a level similar to that of his 2004-05 team would struggle to build a consistent winner in Manhattan. There were questions about what Weber…

  3. No Dominic Artis makes Oregon worst ball-handling nationally?

    Tony Woods, Arsalan Kazemi, Waverly Austin

    Oregon has had better trips to the Bay Area, I’m assuming. Two days after getting thoroughly beatdown by Stanford, the Ducks lost a nail-biter to Cal on Saturday. It was their second straight loss, one that dropped them back into a tie for first place with Arizona at 7-2 in league play and will likely…

  4. Keith Dambrot’s Akron Zips nation’s hottest team with 13 straight wins

    Feb 3, 2013, 6:13 PM EDT

    Keith Dambrot

    While a lot of attention has been paid to which team will ascend to the top of the national polls on a weekly basis, the hottest team in the country has flown under the radar. That team would be the Akron Zips, who are 8-0 in Mid-American Conference play (17-4 overall) and have won 13…

  5. Pitt needed a marquee win on Saturday and got it

    Feb 3, 2013, 5:00 PM EDT

    Syracuse-Pittsburgh 2/2/2013

    Pitt needed to make a statement. The Panthers have the look and the feel of one of the best teams in the Big East. They have the size to pound the offensive glass, they don’t turn the ball over, their wings can really pass the ball and they have one of the most underrated back…

  6. No. 12 Louisville shakes off slow start, whips No. 25 Marquette

    Feb 3, 2013, 4:24 PM EDT

    Marquette v Louisville

    No. 12 Louisville opened Sunday’s game against No. 25 Marquette missing its first seven field goals, trailing the Golden Eagles 9-1 with 15:17 remaining in the first half. Following a Montrezl Harrell dunk to make the score 9-3 the Cardinals would snap out of their funk, ending the first half on a 37-15 run on…

  7. Inspiring story behind Tyler Lewis’ breakout game for NC State

    Feb 3, 2013, 2:35 PM EDT

    Tyler Lewis

    NC State was without point guard Lorenzo Brown due to injury Saturday vs. No. 14 Miami. In his absence, the Wolfpack looked to freshman Tyler Lewis, who had played just 38 minutes through the first eight games of ACC play. He would be asked to nearly equal that total Saturday, playing 36 stellar minutes and…

  8. Five-star forward Jermaine Lawrence commits to Cincinnati

    Mick Cronin

    Jermaine Lawrence, a 6-9, 190-pound native of Queens, N.Y., has committed to coach Mick Cronin and the Cincinnati Bearcats, he announced via a series of pictures on his Tumblr page Sunday. Lawrence chose Cincinnati over St. John’s and UNLV. He becomes the fifth commit in Cincinnati’s 2013 class, joining Kevin Johnson, Troy Caupain, DeShaun Morman,…

  9. Ricky Ledo to the NBA Draft? Sidiki Johnson off the team? Providence hits rough patch

    Feb 3, 2013, 11:55 AM EDT

    Sidiki Johnson

    Ed Cooley is building a solid foundation for future success at Providence. He had one of the top recruiting classes in the country last year. His program is moves to a more stable, basketball-only conference soon. But he is running into two major bumps in the road that could set the progress back significantly, depending…

    Buzz Williams

    Game of the Day: No. 12 Louisville vs. No. 25 Marquette (2:00 p.m. ET, ESPN) Marquette coach Buzz Williams has his team where few expected it to be after losing key starters Darius Johnson-Odom and Jae Crowder after last season. The Golden Eagles are competing and contending in the Big East, off to a 6-1…

    Five Princeton players scored in double figures, including T.J. Bray with 17 points, as the Tigers defeated Columbia Saturday. Ian Hummer added 16 points, seven rebounds, and seven assists for Princeton, which improves to 10-7 and remains an undefeated 3-0 in Ivy League play. Daniel Martin is a writer and editor at, covering St. John’s.…

  12. Where was Michigan’s balance against Indiana?

    Feb 3, 2013, 1:37 AM EDT

    Michigan v Indiana

    Michigan has nothing to worry about after losing to Indiana on Saturday. There is no shame in losing at Assembly Hall to this Indiana team. None whatsoever, especially considering that Michigan was able to bounce back after the Hoosiers played the most impressive five minutes we’ve seen this season to open the game. The Wolverines got…

  13. Late Night Snacks: Kansas falls, Indiana triumphs, Florida continues to roll

    Feb 3, 2013, 1:22 AM EDT

    Billy Donovan head

    Game of the Day: No. 3 Indiana 81, No. 1 Michigan 73 We came into the weekend knowing that this was the marquee matchup on the Saturday slate and it didn’t disappoint. It was a game of runs in the first half, but Indiana never seemed out of control at any one point. Victor Oladipo…

  14. Cody Zeller, the nation’s best role player, lifts Indiana to 1st in Big Ten

    Feb 3, 2013, 12:38 AM EDT

    Michigan Indiana Basketball

    Cody Zeller was supposed to be the superstar for this Indiana team. He was supposed to be the Player of the Year candidate, the all-american who has an offense custom-built to his every post-move; the guy that opposing coaches lost sleep fretting about and spent far too much practice time game-planning for. Zeller is probably…

  15. Eastern Kentucky’s Marcus Lewis alley-oop is Saturday’s best dunk (VIDEO)

    Feb 2, 2013, 11:42 PM EDT

    xsmall_Marcus Lewis (2012-13 Web)

    Did you know that Southeast Missouri was hosting Eastern Kentucky today in Ohio Valley Conference play? Don’t worry if you didn’t. I cover the sport and still briefly forgot that the Colonels and Redhawks were getting after it today. There were a bunch of huge dunks on Saturday. NC-State’s Rodney Purvis had an incredible putback…

  16. Cody Zeller, No. 3 Indiana knock off No. 1 Michigan

    Feb 2, 2013, 11:10 PM EDT

    Cody Zeller

    It was billed as the Big Ten’s heavyweight title fight of the year and it did not disappoint. Behind a double-double of 19 points and 10 rebounds from sophomore forward Cody Zeller, No. 3 Indiana outmuscled No. 1 Michigan down the stretch for an 81-73 victory Saturday night at Assembly Hall in Bloomington, Ind. Zeller…

  17. No. 4 Florida continues their SEC domination with win over Ole Miss

    Feb 2, 2013, 10:11 PM EDT

    Mike Rosario

    On Saturday, Marshall Henderson played just about his best game of the season, hitting for 25 points on 8-16 shooting — and 7-11 from beyond the arc — as Ole Miss had the best offensive performance that anyone in the SEC has had against Florida this season. The problem? They still lost by 14 points…

  18. Nerlens Noel’s double-double helps Kentucky outlast Texas A&M in overtime

    Feb 2, 2013, 8:55 PM EDT

    Nerlens Noel

    Blowing a nine-point halftime lead, letting a team creep back and force overtime, turning the ball over 18 times. It likely wasn’t exactly what Kentucky coach John Calipari wanted from his team Saturday against Texas A&M, but the Wildcats fought to stay in control and closed the door in the extra period, winning, 72-68, at…

  19. Otto Porter, Georgetown continues winning streak with victory over St. John’s

    Feb 2, 2013, 7:54 PM EDT

    Otto Porter

    We’ve seen both sides of this Georgetown team in 2012-13, both good and bad, but Saturday at the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C., the Hoyas put together a strong team outing to beat St. John’s, 68-56. Playing with a more athletic but smaller three-guard lineup, St. John’s struggled to counter Georgetown’s interior attack and were…

  20. Should we be concerned No. 2 Kansas losing to Oklahoma State?

    Feb 2, 2013, 7:18 PM EDT

    Markel Brown, Perry Ellis

    If I’m a Kansas fan, I’m not all that concerned about their 85-80 loss to Oklahoma State on Saturday afternoon. An 18-game winning streak and a No. 2 ranking (N0. 1 if you believe the coaches poll) aside, Kansas is not a perfect basketball team. No one in the country is a perfect basketball team…
