  1. 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…

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

    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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

    Feb 2, 2013, 7:01 PM EDT

    Oregon Cal

    Despite shooting 47 percent from the floor, No. 10 Oregon turned the ball over 22 times and lost a three-point halftime lead in its 58-54 loss to California Saturday at Haas Pavilion in Berkeley, Calif. Oregon’s E.J. Singler had a good look from three-point range to take the lead with 0:08 remaining, but the shot…

    Feb 2, 2013, 6:44 PM EDT

    Northern Iowa Wichita State

    The Missouri Valley has not been kind to No. 15 Wichita State this week. Four days after falling to a pesky Indiana State team, the Shockers lost on the road to unranked Northern Iowa, 57-52, Saturday at McLeod Center in Cedar Falls, Iowa. Carl Hall was the lone bright spot for Wichita State Saturday, going…

    Arch Madness officially refers to the Missouri Valley Conference tournament, held annually in St. Louis. But a little bit of the magic seems to have rubbed off on St. Louis, the team, even though they play in the Atlantic 10 and are usually on the East Coast come March. The Billikens followed up their upset…

  14. Late Afternoon Snacks: When two halves just aren’t enough

    Feb 2, 2013, 5:04 PM EDT

    Virginia Tech North Carolina Basketball

    Game of the Day North Carolina 72, Virginia Tech 60 (OT): Earlier this week, I hinted that perhaps Virginia Tech could win a few more games if Erick Green got more help from his friends. Maybe not. Four Tech players were in double figures, and Green (16 points) contributed his second-lowest point total of the…

  15. No. 5 Duke blasts Florida State in Tallahassee

    Feb 2, 2013, 4:20 PM EDT

    Duke v Florida State

    The Duke Blue Devils moved to 6-2 in the ACC despite a lackluster showing from Marshall Plumlee, downing Florida State 79 to 60 in Tallahassee.The Blue Devils have lost to the Seminoles in each of the past two seasons, so this year’s win was likely a bit of a relief. Both teams were playing without…

  16. Pitt shares the ball in 65-55 upset of No. 6 Syracuse

    Feb 2, 2013, 2:22 PM EDT

    Adams Grant

    No big-time scorer? No problem for the Pitt Panthers. Tray Woodall became the first and only player to reach double figures for Pitt with just :39 left in a convincing 65-55 home upset of No. 6 Syracuse, and that was OK. Pitt played a team game against the star-laden Orange, getting 31 points from a…

  17. Report: Sun Belt may raid SoCon to add two new members

    Feb 2, 2013, 11:30 AM EDT


    At this point, any realignment scenario being bandied about for any league seems plausible. None of the rumors and conjecture have the paper trail discovered by AppStateNation, however. The blog, dedicated to coverage of the Appalachian State Mountaineers, used an official Freedom of Information Act request to uncover potential realignment plans that involve the Sun…

    Aaron Gordon (Archbishop Mitty/San Jose, Calif.) is one of three top-1o recruits who are still on the board. While some players are trimming their list of options for next year, the 6-foot-8 Gordon has actually added to his recruitment.

  20. Jordan Morgan might play against Indiana on Saturday

    Feb 1, 2013, 8:57 PM EDT

    Michigan Illinois Basketball

    When Jordan Morgan went down with what looked a serious ankle injury in Sunday’s 74-60 win over Illinois. Although it looked a lot worse than it turned out to be. No break, only a sprain for the Michigan junior. After missing the win against Northwestern, the 6-foot-8 forward could be available for Saturday’s marquee matchup…
