    Duke hasn’t lost a non-conference game at home since all the way back in 2000, which St. John’s nipped them 83-82. That almost changed on Sunday night, as the Blue Devils came about as close as you can come to losing without actually doing it. They beat 1-5 Vermont 91-90, but it wasn’t that simple.…

    GAME OF THE DAY: No. 25 Marquette vs. Arizona State, 9:00 p.m. ET (FS1) The best game in the opening round of the Wooden Legacy. Marquette probably doesn’t exactly deserve to be ranked right now, not after they were pounded by Ohio State, but they are. Buzz Williams has size on his roster, but his…

    Kevin Ware

    Kevin Ware’s latest legal snafu seems to be passed him. Last week, he missed a court date that stemmed from a speeding ticket in which he was caught going 95 MPH in a 2013 Dodge Charger. Red flags started going off all over the place. But it appears as if there was nothing amiss. The…

    Yesterday, Billy Donovan made it official: starting point guard Scottie Wilbekin will be allowed to return to the team this week. The Gators host Jacksonville tonight. He’ll be there and in uniform, which is a fact made all the more important by the loss of Kasey Hill to an ankle sprain. But Wilbekin wasn’t the…

    Arizona v San Diego State

    Michigan State is still the No. 1 team in the country, because I don’t think you can replace the No. 1 team in the country if they don’t lose or if the No. 2 team doesn’t mess around and do something ridiculous, like beat the other three top five teams in the span of a…

    In looking at the first month of the 2013-14 season, it’s difficult to find too many teams who have enjoyed a better start to the season than the UMass Minutemen. Picked in the preseason to finish fourth in the Atlantic 10, Derek Kellogg’s team is off to a 6-0 start with five of those wins…

    Sometimes you just have to give credit where credit’s due. Charlotte was an afterthought in Conference USA heading into the season, but that certainly changed this week as the 49ers knocked off Kansas and Northeastern to set up Sunday’s showdown with No. 14 Michigan in the final of the Puerto Rico Tip-Off.

    After having trouble defensively in their 83-74 win over East Carolina on Tuesday night, No. 6 Duke had their hands full with the Vermont Catamounts on Sunday evening.

    At halftime of their game at Colorado on Sunday afternoon, the Harvard Crimson had the look of a team poised to grab a needed resume-building victory. Leading 42-30, the Crimson executed well on both ends of the floor, finding quality shots offensively while limiting Colorado’s quality looks on the other end. But as the Crimson…

    Southern Miss moved to 6-0 on the season with a 99-54 win over William-Carey on Sunday afternoon, and while the result itself may not grab much attention nationally, the above dunk thrown down by forward Michael Craig should.

    The story of High Point senior forward Allan Chaney is one college basketball fans may be familiar with.

    Florida Gators Wilbekin chases the ball after a turnover as Florida Gulf Coast Eagles Comer tries to recover during the second half in their South Regional NCAA men's basketball game in Arlington

    On Sunday, Billy Donovan announced that senior point guard Scottie Wilbekin was reinstated and will rejoin the team for Monday’s home game against Jacksonville. In mid-June, Wilbekin was suspended for a “violation of team rules.” What makes this so concerning is that it’s the second time he’s been suspended; last season Wilbekin missed the first three…
