    Mar 24, 2013, 11:35 PM EDT

    ACC Basketball Tournament - North Carolina v Miami

    How do you not love Julian Gamble? His exploits as a photobomber are well-known by now, as is his ability to freestyle. Gamble struck again on Sunday night, after Miami advanced past Illinois and into the Sweet 16. And it’s his best work yet:

  2. Ole Miss loses, then Marshall Henderson flips off crowd

    Mar 24, 2013, 11:26 PM EDT

    La Salle v Ole Miss

    All it took was one ‘Southwest Philly Floater‘ from Tyrone Garland, and the Marshall Henderson Show came to an end. Garland’s driving layup gave No. 13 seed La Salle a 76-74 win over No. 12 seed Ole Miss, a loss that may mean that we have seen the last of Marshall Henderson, the country’s most…

  3. Shane Larkin, Rion Brown lead Miami to Sweet 16 after win over Illinois

    Mar 24, 2013, 11:24 PM EDT

    Miami Shane Larkin

    Aside from perhaps Michigan point guard Trey Burke, Miami’s Shane Larkin has proven himself to be the biggest breakout star at that position this season. Sunday night with his team’s postseason fate on the line, Larkin took a fearless step-back three-pointer with 1:04 to play and nailed it to give his team a two-point lead,…

    Mar 24, 2013, 10:41 PM EDT

    La Salle v Ole Miss

    The “Southwest Philly floater” sends La Salle to the Sweet 16. Tyrone Garland’s shot (and yes, he did name it on TV following the game) with 2.5 seconds remaining proved to be the difference in the Explorers’ 76-74 victory over West Region 12-seed Ole Miss, punching their ticket to Los Angeles where they’ll take on…

  6. Did Florida Gulf Coast deserve to be ranked higher than a No. 15 seed?

    Mar 24, 2013, 9:44 PM EDT

    Florida Gulf Coast

    Florida Gulf Coast made history Sunday night by beating San Diego State and becoming the first No. 15 seed in NCAA tournament history to make the Sweet 16. With how confident, explosive, and dominating they have been in two double-digit wins in this NCAA tournament, how could they possibly have ended up with that 15-seed?…

  7. FGCU’s emphatic second-half run ends San Diego State’s season

    Mar 24, 2013, 9:41 PM EDT

    Florida Gulf Coast v San Diego State

    Entering Sunday’s contest against 15-seed Florida Gulf Coast, San Diego State ranked among the best teams in the country in regards to defensive efficiency (11th per kenpom.com). But in a 17-0 second half run the Eagles shredded the Aztec defense and the end result was an 81-71 FGCU victory, giving Andy Enfield’s program its first-ever…

  9. Florida pulls away from Minnesota late to advance to Sweet 16

    Mar 24, 2013, 8:49 PM EDT

    Scottie Wilbekin

    We’re still not sure how Florida will fare in a close game against a high-major opponent after the Gators’ 78-64 win over Minnesota, but coach Billy Donovan’s team almost manufactured a close game for themselves down the stretch. After leading by as much as 18 points with 17:18 to play in the second half, Minnesota…

  10. Did Tubby Smith do enough in the tournament to save his job?

    Mar 24, 2013, 8:44 PM EDT

    Minnesota v UCLA

    No. 11 seed Minnesota dug themselves to deep of a hole in their 78-64 loss to No. 3 Florida on Sunday evening. The Gophers were on the wrong end of a Florida blitzkrieg in the first half, helpless as the Gators drilled three-ball after three-ball and stymied the Minnesota offensive attack to open up a…

  12. Who will develop as a post presence for UNC next season?

    Mar 24, 2013, 7:52 PM EDT

    Roy Williams

    Kansas’ Jeff Withey had his way with the North Carolina front line in a dominating second half that helped the Jayhawks to a 70-58 win Sunday to advance to the Sweet 16. He had 16 points, 16 rebounds, and five blocks and looked like a player at times with little to no resistance against him at the…

  14. Veterans spark second-half revival in Kansas’ win over North Carolina

    Mar 24, 2013, 7:45 PM EDT

    North Carolina v Kansas

    With Ben McLemore playing as he did for the first few months of the season, it seemed as if the freshman wing would be the one expected to lead the Kansas Jayhawks back to the Final Four. But if the second half of Sunday’s 70-58 win over South Region 9-seed North Carolina reveals anything, it’s…

  15. Report: George Mason to announce move to Atlantic 10 Monday

    Mar 24, 2013, 7:38 PM EDT

    George Mason

    George Mason and the Atlantic 10 sent out simultaneous and cryptic releases on Sunday night, with both scheduling a press conference for a “major announcement” by both the conference and the school. It didn’t take a genius to do the math, and since there have been multiple reports that the announcement will, in fact, be…

    Trey Burke

    If you think it feels like there are 25 different college basketball Player of the Year awards, you’re not that far off. There are six. That doesn’t take into count the countless awards offered up by every .com out there. (For the record, we gave Trey Burke our Player of the Year award.) One of…

  17. Temple couldn’t have asked for more from Khalif Wyatt, but it wasn’t enough

    Mar 24, 2013, 5:28 PM EDT

    Khalif Wyatt

    Khalif Wyatt went for 31 points in Temple’s win over No. 8 NC State to advance to the Round of 32. Against No. 1-seeded Indiana Sunday, he had an encore performance with a Sweet 16 berth on the line. Wyatt scored 31 points against the Hoosiers on 12-of-24 shooting, but the Owls got little production…

  18. No. 1 seed Indiana survives No. 9 Temple, advances to the Sweet 16

    Mar 24, 2013, 5:08 PM EDT

    Temple v Indiana

    There’s a reason that the slogan for the NCAA tournament is ‘survive and advance’. It doesn’t matter how you play. It doesn’t matter how ugly the performance is or how many points you give up to the other team’s star. All that matters is that, when that final buzzer sounds, you have more points that…

  19. Remember Aaron Craft, but don’t forget about the “charge” he drew

    Mar 24, 2013, 3:14 PM EDT

    Iowa State v Ohio State

    Aaron Craft’s shot may be the defining moment of the NCAA tournament so far that wasn’t an alley-oop that sparked a rap video. He’s a kid whose entire legacy is built on the fact that he’s a “winner” that played like garbage down the stretch — two turnovers, 2-5 free throws including two missed front-ends…
