    Andrew Wiggins

    Kansas freshman wing Andrew Wiggins has been under the proverbial microscope all season long, with every one of his performances arguably analyzed more than any other freshman in the current “one and done” era. One of the biggest complaints about Wiggins was a lack of assertiveness, with him at times giving the appearance of a…

    In the aftermath of their run to the 2013 Final Four, many wondered what Gregg Marshall’s Wichita State Shockers would do for an encore. While they lost guard Malcolm Armstead from last season’s group many of the other key contributors returned, and to this point in the season those returnees have strung together 21 consecutive…

    Derrick Colter became the third player today to hit a buzzer-beater to win a game. But what was unique about the shot the Duquesne point guard hit is that on the previous possession, he missed a pair of free throws that would have put the Dukes into the lead. The shot snapped a four-game losing…

    Michigan v Michigan State

    No. 3 Michigan State has been banged up all season long. Gary Harris has missed time with an ankle injury. Matt Costello and Travis Trice have been sick enough that they had to sit out games. Keith Appling has dealt with nagging injuries that were painful enough to visually affect him during games but not…

  6. No. 21 Michigan uses late surge to beat No. 3 Michigan State

    Jan 25, 2014, 9:41 PM EDT

    walton

    During the last few days much had been made about the omission of Michigan guard Nik Stauskas from both the Wooden and Robertson award lists. Having raised his scoring average by some seven-plus points per game from last season, Stauskas has been the answer to who will grab the reins for the Wolverines offensively. That…

    pitt

    No. 20 Pitt is a really, really good basketball team. They entered Saturday sitting second in the nation in KenPom’s rankings, a fact that was more-or-less supported when they went into College Park and knocked off Maryland, 83-79. Lamar Patterson led the way with 28 points, seven boards, seven assists and three steals while not…

    Jan 25, 2014, 7:49 PM EDT

    kaminsky

    In three consecutive losses No. 9 Wisconsin allowed opponents to shoot better than 51% from the field, with their inability to keep guards out of the lane a big reason why they struggled defensively against Indiana, Michigan and Minnesota. So entering their game at Purdue, it was clear what Bo Ryan’s team needed to do…

    Jan 25, 2014, 6:40 PM EDT

    donovan

    With two burly big men in Jeronne Maymon and Jarnell Stokes and guard Jordan McRae, Tennessee had the look of a team capable of at the very least challenging No. 6 Florida in Gainesville Saturday afternoon. McRae entered the game averaging more than 19 points per game, with Maymon and Stokes also in double figures…

    Marcus Thornton went for 26 points on Saturday afternoon at Drexel, but the most important shot that the dreadlocked point guard would hit came at the buzzer, as he shook a defender to drill a step-back three and give W&M a 68-66 win. The Tribe, who were down nine points at the half, moved to…

  14. Le’Bryan Nash, No. 11 Oklahoma State overcome awful afternoon for Marcus Smart

    Jan 25, 2014, 5:13 PM EDT

    Le'Bryan Nash, Terry Henderson

    If you’re wondering who it was wearing Marcus Smart’s No. 33 jersey in Gallagher-Iba Arena today, you probably aren’t alone. Smart played about as poorly as I’ve ever seen him play. He finished with four points, four assists and three turnovers while shooting 1-for-7 from the floor and fouling out. That wasn’t even the worst…

    Oklahoma State guard Markel Brown didn’t have the best afternoon from a shooting standpoint, as he made just five of his 13 attempts from the field in the 11th-ranked Cowboys’ 81-75 home win over West Virginia. But he did provide the highlight of the game, throwing down a 360-degree dunk to tie the game at…

    Syracuse v Miami

    Syracuse remains unbeaten on the season and the No. 2 Orange have to be pleased that Miami is no longer on the ACC schedule until a potential match-up in the conference tournament in March. After giving Syracuse a scare earlier in the month on the road, Miami gave the Orange another fight on Saturday as…

  20. Why a 30.5% shooting day is No. 18 Duke’s most important performance this season

    Jan 25, 2014, 2:45 PM EDT

    Florida State v Duke

    Saturday was not the best game that No. 18 Duke has played this season. It’s hard to put that label on a game when a team shoots as poorly from the field (30.5%) as the Blue Devils did against Florida State. It was, however, the most important game that Duke has put together this season,…
