    At the end of the 2012-13 season the Wisconsin Badgers said farewell to Jared Berggren, Mike Bruesewitz and Ryan Evans, meaning that Bo Ryan needed some players to step in in the front court this season.

    Ohio State v Marquette

    In a season that’s been defined by an excess of fouls that stems from an effort to increase the amount of scoring that we see on a nightly basis in college hoops, it was somewhat refreshing to see a good old-fashioned defensive slug-fest on Saturday afternoon.

    When No. 19 Marquette went into halftime of its sold-out home game against No. 10 Ohio State, Golden Eagle fans must have been thinking the Marquette offense would get better after a 19-19 halftime score that was the lowest cumulative total in college basketball this season. They were wrong. Marquette only mustered 16 points in…

    That right there is Shaq Boga hitting banking in a three from about 45 feet to give UT-Pan American a win over Tennessee Tech on Friday night. But that’s not the best part about the shot. For the best part, you need to see the other angle. Pay close attention at the :05 second mark:…
