    Caris LeVert

    Caris LeVert has been tearing up the Big Ten this season, averaging 13.4 points as one of the nation’s most improved sophomores. He’s been terrific, carrying the Wolverines at times when Nik Stauskas has struggled. Beilein has called him his most indispensable player. The craziest part about it is that LeVert wasn’t even supposed to…

    The Duke basketball team paid a visit to the Duke students camping out in Krzyzewski-ville this weekend. North Carolina will be paying a visit to Cameron Indoor Stadium on Saturday, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the kids want those good seats. The team played some pick-up hoops with the students, and even…

    Texas A&M’s Alex Caruso finished with seven points, nine assists and seven boards, but he sparked Texas A&M’s second half run with this filthy behind-the-back move before dunking all over an Ole Miss defender. That defender? Marshall Henderson.

    The 2014 Patriot League Tournament kicks off Monday night with a pair of preliminary contests. Back in October, newcomer Boston University was viewed as the favorite, and thanks to its strong finish BU enters the field as the top seed.

    PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Marcus Smart, Oklahoma State Marcus Smart is back.

    Virginia is the perfect example of why unbalanced schedules as a result of conference expansion is lame. The three teams that the ‘Hoos played twice during ACC play were Florida State, Maryland and Notre Dame. They didn’t have to play at North Carolina or at Syracuse. So while I certainly respect that the only loss…

    With the problems experienced at the conclusion of Thursday’s game between New Mexico State and Utah Valley, the debate regarding court-storming is once again active in college basketball. Should court-storming be banned? That’s a question individual schools and their conferences will be left to address, but one conference that’s ahead of the curve in this…

    Saturday afternoon UNLV put forth one of its best performances of the season, shooting 61.8% from the field and 12-for-18 from beyond the arc in their 93-67 win at Air Force. Unfortunately for head coach Dave Rice that result came at a cost, as the school announced on Sunday evening that junior forward Roscoe Smith…

    GAME OF THE DAY: Clemson 77, Maryland 73 (2OT) With both teams looking to keep alive incredibly slim hopes of earning an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament, the Terrapins and Tigers needed ten extra minutes to determine a winner.

    Fifteen days ago No. 25 New Mexico blew out Nevada in Albuquerque, shooting 55.2% from the field and assisting on 27 of their 32 made field goals in the 90-72 victory. And considering just how well Craig Neal’s team played for much of that game, it can be argued that the final margin was a…

    Not only did No. 9 lose control of the Big East title race with their 75-69 defeat at Xavier on Saturday, the Bluejays also lost a member of their rotation to an injury. Redshirt freshman guard Isaiah Zierden went down in the first half of that game with a knee injury, and on Sunday evening…

    No. 8 Villanova has lost just three times this season: at No. 4 Syracuse in December and twice to No. 9 Creighton during Big East play. Not a particularly flashy team, the Wildcats are tough, unselfish and they’ve got plenty of skill as well. Those attributes were on display Sunday afternoon as Villanova beat Marquette…

    There’s much to like about Iowa this March. The Hawkeyes are deep and talented and possess one of the most efficient offenses in the entire country. Though, they struggle defensively and have let several marquee wins slip right through hands this season. The cause for concern has been a three-game losing streak — Wisconsin, Minnesota and…
