  1. Trevor Cooney, Tyler Ennis struggle as No. 1 Syracuse falls at No. 5 Duke

    Feb 22, 2014, 10:15 PM EDT


    The way in which Syracuse’s first trip to Cameron Indoor Stadium will stick with Syracuse fans for quite some time, with a charge called on C.J. Fair resulting in an apoplectic Jim Boeheim getting ejected from the game. And that’s fine. But if people are going to talk about what cost the Orange on Saturday…

  2. POSTERIZED: Tarik Black dunks on Texas, bench loses their mind (VIDEO)

    Tarik Black going all Blake Griffin on some poor Texas defender in a 30 point blowout is embarrassing enough. But that’s not what’s going to go viral here. The reaction on the Kansas bench is. Wayne Selden going all leapfrog over the chairs might be my favorite #benchmob reaction of all-time. Follow @robdauster

  3. Jabari Parker’s best all-around game give Duke a win over Syracuse

    Feb 22, 2014, 9:39 PM EDT


    Jabari Parker didn’t get off to a great start against No. 1 Syracuse on Saturday night. Midway through the first half, No. 5 Duke’s star freshman had four turnovers, a handful of missed shots and a 17-8 deficit to overcome. But the end of the night, Parker would have 19 points on 6-for-9 shooting, 10…

    Jim Boeheim got his first introduction to ACC refs on Saturday night during No. 1 Syracuse’s 66-60 loss to No. 5 Duke. The Syracuse head coach got ejected for the first time in the regular season after he lost it on referee Tony Greene for a charge that was called on C.J. Fair with 10.4…

  5. Quinnipiac goes the length of the court in 1.7 seconds for a win (VIDEO)

    Feb 22, 2014, 8:48 PM EDT


    Qunnipiac is still within striking distance of first place in the MAAC, but a loss at Niagara would have negated that. So what did the Bobcats do? Oh, nothing. Just went the length of the court in 1.7 seconds to knock off the Purple Eagles on Saturday. It’s not exactly Christian Laettner vs. Kentucky, but…

  6. Stanford adds to its resume with win over No. 23 UCLA (VIDEO)

    In the first meeting between Stanford and No. 23 UCLA on January 23 the Cardinal struggled mightily in the paint. While scoring just 12 points themselves Stanford watched UCLA score 46 points in the paint on their way to a comfortable 91-74 victory. While the Wear twins were quiet, combining to score six points, Tony…

    Kentucky hasn’t necessarily worked well together at times this season, but to knock off LSU at home on Saturday, the Wildcats needed multiple players to step up in the game’s hectic final minutes in the overtime. James Young’s free throws gave Kentucky a lead with 25 seconds remaining before Andre Stringer’s layup with 15 seconds…

  8. Texas A&M’s Antwan Space foils Tennessee once again (VIDEO)

    Feb 22, 2014, 6:18 PM EDT


    For those who grew up watching basketball during the 1980s, the name Andrew Toney should be a familiar one. Toney was a good player during his eight-year professional career, averaging nearly 16 points per game and winning an NBA title with the Philadelphia 76ers in 1983. But something funny seemed to happen when Toney played…

  9. Louisville’s win at Cincinnati shows they can make another run

    By knocking off No. 7 Cincinnati on the road for an American Athletic Conference win on Saturday, No. 11 Louisville earned its biggest win of the season and came back to beat a Bearcat team that beat them at home earlier in the year. It was Louisville’s first win over a ranked opponent on the…

  10. St. John’s quest for another quality win falls short at No. 9 Villanova

    Feb 22, 2014, 4:24 PM EDT


    Having won nine of their last ten games entering Saturday’s contest at No. 9 Villanova, St. John’s has been one of the hotter bubble teams in the country. A win over the Wildcats would further cement St. John’s status as a team charging towards an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament. And given their 0-5…

  11. Once again, No. 2 Florida overcomes slow start defensively

    Feb 22, 2014, 4:13 PM EDT

    Marshall Henderson, DeVon Walker

    After No. 1 Syracuse lost to Boston College on Wednesday, it has more or less been assumed that No. 2 Florida will hop up into that No. 1 spot when the new rankings come out on Monday morning. The Gators have spent much of the past two months playing some of the best basketball in…

  12. Marcus Smart’s double-double in return leads Oklahoma State past Texas Tech

    Feb 22, 2014, 3:50 PM EDT

    Marcus Smart

    Oklahoma State has struggled in Big 12 play since the loss of Michael Cobbins as the Cowboys aspirations went from title hopes in the conference to just getting in the field of 68. After seven straight losses in the conference, Oklahoma State (17-10, 5-9) finally got back on the right track with an 84-62 win…

  13. Strong profile aside, is No. 16 Wisconsin a national title contender?

    Three weeks ago, on Saturday, February 1st, we were all ready to write off No. 16 Wisconsin. The Badgers had lost to Ohio State in the Kohl Center, their fifth loss in six games and their third-straight defeat at home, something that simply never happens. They were overrated. Their record was boosted by the fact…

  14. No. 11 Louisville wins wild game thanks to Russ Smith heroics over No. 7 Cincinnati

    louisville cincinnati feb

    Louisville and Cincinnati have been together playing basketball in other leagues before. In its second matchup in the American Athletic Conference, the top two teams in the league grinded-out an ugly, low-scoring contest as No. 11 Louisville knocked off No. 7 Cincinnati for a huge 58-57 road win. Russ Smith (10 points, five assists, three steals) came…

  15. Late-game execution costs No. 15 Iowa again

    Feb 22, 2014, 2:23 PM EDT

    Traevon Jackson, Aaron White

    No. 16 Wisconsin paid a visit to No. 15 Iowa on Saturday afternoon and, as you should come to expect from a marquee Big Ten game, it turned into a thriller, with the Badgers leaving Iowa City with a 79-74 win. In the first half, the Badgers found more holes in Iowa’s man-to-man defense than…

  17. Late Night Snacks: UMass outruns VCU

    Chaz Williams

    Game of the night: Massachusetts 80, VCU 75 During the Atlantic 10 media day, I spoke with Massachusetts coach Derek Kellogg about his team’s three-point dependence. Since he arrived at UMass, Kellogg’s squads were content to jack a high percentages of threes, consistently posting a three-point attempts percentage in the mid-30s. After asking Kellogg whether…

  18. Might Harvard be shut out of Ivy POY race?

    Tommy Amaker

    The race for the Ivy League title will likely not be decided until the March’s first weekend, when Yale travels north on I-90 to face Harvard, so while there are still a handful of games to be played, it is interesting to speculate which Ivy players are in the lead for the league’s player the…

  19. Siena throws wrench into MAAC race

    Feb 21, 2014, 10:42 PM EDT

    Steve Masiello

    With just a handful of MAAC regular season games remaining in 2014, it appeared the conference’s top three teams were Iona, Manhattan, and Quinnipiac. However, Siena upset what seemed to be the league’s natural order by defeating the Jaspers, 67-63, dropping Manhattan (13-4 MAAC) to third place and giving Jimmy Patsos his first premier win…

  20. UMass tops VCU in a thriller, avenging losses from previous season

    Feb 21, 2014, 10:39 PM EDT

    Derek Kellogg

    AMHERST, Mass. – Chaz Williams had had enough of Havoc. In two games against the vaunted VCU defense last season, Williams had compiled as many turnovers as assists, both losses for Minutemen. The latter of those two defeats, ousted UMass from the Atlantic 10 semifinals. One day later it became easier for the NCAA tournament…
