  1. ‘Chaos’ has yet to take hold, but it hasn’t stopped Will Wade from winning at Chattanooga

    Will Wade_Mattia

    When Will Wade was hired at Chattanooga in May, he had a vision for the program that he wanted to build. Just 31 years young, Wade had spent the last four years as an assistant on Shaka Smart’s staff at VCU, watching the way that the basketball-mad community of Richmond embraced ‘Havoc’. It originated as…

    Ohio State v Michigan State

    No. 23 Ohio State has lost five of their last six games, and Wednesday night’s may have been the toughest to swallow. The Buckeyes lost to Penn State. At home. After blowing a seven-point lead in the final three minutes, giving up a game-tying three on a defensive breakdown and blowing a three-point lead with…

  3. POSTERIZED: Arnaud-William Adala Moto has lots of names, hops (VIDEO)

    Jan 30, 2014, 11:27 AM EDT

    Syracuse v Wake Forest

    Arnaud-William Adala Moto threw down a nasty dunk on Baye Moussa Keita, who came up one name short of being able to block the shot. I’m shocked that he didn’t get a technical, however. Usually screaming in an opponent’s face like that is the easiest way to get lit up. No. 2 Syracuse, as expected,…

  4. Thursday’s Pregame Shootaround: A major AAC battle takes place

    GAME OF THE NIGHT: No. 13 Cincinnati at No. 12 Louisville, 7:00 p.m. The biggest game of the season in the American will be taking place at the Yum! Center tonight. Cincinnati has been the best team in the conference all year long, jumping out to a 19-2 record and an 8-0 start in league…

  5. Justin Jackson to start for Cincinnati at Louisville

    Cincinnati Memphis

    No. 13 Cincinnati will make the trek down to the Yum! Center to take on No. 12 Louisville tonight, and they’ll be doing it at full strength. Justin Jackson, the Bearcat center and the anchor of one of the best defenses in the country, will start tonight. He rolled his ankle and managed all of…

  6. More injury woes for George Washington as Joe McDonald’s hip acts up

    Jan 30, 2014, 8:56 AM EDT

    Georgia v George Washington

    George Washington just can’t seem to shake the injury bug. Earlier this year, it was Patricio Garino that missed time. He broke his finger, sat out a couple of games, reinjured the finger during a practice in California for the Wooden Legacy and missed four more games before finally getting healthy and becoming a key…

  7. Nebraska head coach Tim Miles helps a fan propose

    Jan 30, 2014, 8:24 AM EDT

    Ohio State v Nebraska

    It’s hard not to love Nebraska head coach Tim Miles. He’s funny, he’s enthusiastic, and he seemingly spends (wastes?) as much time on twitter as the rest of us. He tweets halftime updates during every game he coaches. He’s quick to crack a joke. Essentially, he not like the media-savvy robots that coach most major…

  8. The Secondary Break: Thursday’s Links

    Doug McDermott

    Doug McDermott relishes “incredible moment” from St. John’s win (Omaha World-Herald) After struggling offensively in Creighton’s win over Georgetown, Doug McDermott found his groove on Tuesday night against St. John’s. McDermott scored 39 points, capping the game with a three-pointer with 2.5 seconds remaining to give the Bluejays the three-point win. Sooners doing something no…

  9. Late Night Snacks: No. 1 Arizona, No. 2 Syracuse remain unbeaten

    GAME OF THE NIGHT: Arizona State 89, California 78 (OT) The Sun Devils held a 16-point lead early in the second half, only to watch the Golden Bears storm back and take a three-point lead with 26 seconds remaining. Enter Jermaine Marshall, who hit a three-pointer to tie the game and send it into overtime. From…

  10. No. 16 Iowa State has lost four of the last five, but should we be worried?

    I’m not sure that No. 16 Iowa State could have played much better than they did on Wednesday night in Lawrence. Georges Niang shook off a horrendous performance in the first game against No. 6 Kansas, finishing with 24 points on 10-for-17 shooting. DeAndre Kane added 22 points and Melvin Ejim finished with 18. The…

  11. Offensive woes, Drew Crawford too much for No. 14 Wisconsin to overcome

    Jan 30, 2014, 12:09 AM EDT

    ryan

    In ending their three-game losing streak with a win at Purdue on Saturday afternoon No. 14 Wisconsin seemed to have turned things around, and in theory a home game against Northwestern represented the opportunity to go on a run. Unfortunately for Bo Ryan’s Badgers things didn’t work out that way, as they struggled on both…

  12. Stanford misses a golden opportunity to upset No. 1 Arizona

    Jan 29, 2014, 11:57 PM EDT

    Arizona v Stanford

    Mark it down: Wednesday night may be the worst performance you see from No. 1 Arizona all season long. The Wildcats were, quite simply, not good. Stanford’s size was bothering Arizona’s big front line in the paint, Aaron Gordon was forcing things on the offensive end of the floor and Stanford was doing just enough…

  13. Andrew Wiggins, Perry Ellis stand out in No. 6 Kansas’ win over Iowa State

    Jan 29, 2014, 11:38 PM EDT

    wiggins

    Andrew Wiggins’ performance on Saturday night against TCU was seen as a step forward and rightfully so, despite the fact that the Horned Frogs have yet to win a game in Big 12 play. In scoring his then-career high 27 points Wiggins played with the assertiveness that many have been clamoring for, refusing to simply…

    Oregon head coach Dana Altman revealed some potentially significant news on Wednesday afternoon. Johnathan Loyd, who has been the starting point guard for the Ducks for the majority of the season, broke his nose on Tuesday during a rebounding drill. “He caught an elbow and it was just an accident, so he missed practice yesterday,” Altman…

  15. No. 23 Ohio State’s loss to Penn State puts them in deeper hole

    Jan 29, 2014, 9:39 PM EDT

    Penn State v Ohio State

    It’s officially time to be worried if you’re an Ohio State fan. On Wednesday night, the No. 23 Buckeyes lost at home in overtime to Penn State, 71-70. It’s their fifth loss in six games, which has dropped them to 3-5 in the Big Ten. The Nittany Lions are better than they get credit for…

  16. Staffers keep President Obama from watching Michigan State/Iowa game

    Jan 29, 2014, 7:37 PM EDT

    US-POLITICS-OBAMA

    Last night’s Michigan State/Iowa game proved to be one of the more entertaining contests played to this point in the season, with the 7th-ranked Spartans needing overtime to beat the 15th-ranked Hawkeyes in Iowa City. And given the fact that both teams entered the game ranked in the Top 15, obviously most college basketball fans…

    Rhode Island has added a front court player to its program, as the school announced on Wednesday that Chipola (Florida) College power forward Earl Watson is now a member of the team. Watson, who’s listed at 6-foot-7, 250 pounds, will only practice with the team for the remainder of the current season. That will ensure…

  19. The Chase for 180: Billy Baron’s become even more lethal

    Jan 29, 2014, 5:15 PM EDT

    Tom Wolf Imaging/Canisius Athletics

    Who is the best shooter in the country? It’s a tough question to answer, isn’t it? Does being a “shooter” simply mean merely being a high-level marksman from beyond the arc? Can a player who thrives in the mid-range but rarely ventures out into three-point land be eligible? How heavily should we be valuing stats like…

    Florida’s highly-touted but yet-to-be-seen freshman Chris Walker has been cleared by the NCAA, according to a report from Jeff Goodman of ESPN.com. “I appreciate all the support from UF, Coach Donovan and my teammates, and I’m looking forward to helping the team any way I can,” Walker said in a statement released by the school.…
