    Feb 24, 2014, 11:52 PM EDT

    Oklahoma v Kansas

    Naadir Tharpe scored 12 of his 19 points in the final six minutes, adding five assists and just a single turnover while shooting 6-for-7 from the floor as No. 5 Kansas knocked off Oklahoma, 83-75, earning the Jayhawks at least a share of their 10th straight Big Ten title. I’ll get back to that in…

  2. Can Oklahoma get enough stops to beat the best teams in the country?

    With Oklahoma’s 83-75 loss at Kansas on Monday night, the Sooners lost yet another chance to win an elite road game. Oklahoma can definitely put up points but can the Sooners can get stops to win games against teams as good as Kansas? Lon Kruger’s team has multiple scoring options and shooters and they’re 12th…

    Purdue had some tough news come its way on Monday as the school and head coach Matt Painter announced that senior guard Sterling Carter is out for the rest of the season with a torn ACL.

  4. Maryland’s competing now, but issues at the point keep popping up

    Feb 24, 2014, 9:55 PM EDT

    Maryland v Duke

    Maryland was in danger of missing the NCAA tournament before Monday night’s visit from No. 4 Syracuse, and while their 57-55 loss doesn’t really damage an already weak profile, what it does is take away yet another opportunity to make themselves look better in the eyes of the committee. The Terps have now lost three…

    Syracuse doesn’t necessarily have the offensive game to blow out unranked opponents, but the No. 4 Orange are used to winning tight games. Jim Boeheim’s ballclub bounced back from Saturday’s loss to Duke to knock off Maryland 57-55 on Monday for an ACC road win. The Orange gave up a late run to Maryland and…

    As Tennessee lingers on the bubble again under head coach Cuonzo Martin and after a tough loss to Texas A&M, the fans in the state might be getting a little restless. According to a report from Nick Cole of the Tennessean, former Tennessee head coach Bruce Pearl was in Nashville to be apart of SportsFest,…

    Wyoming has suspended Charles Hankerson indefinitely, head coach Larry Shyatt announced on Monday afternoon. A 6-foot-4 junior guard, Hankerson was averaging 5.1 points and 1.3 rebounds in just over 17 minutes this season. No reason was given for the suspension, and Shyatt said that the team will have no further comment. This is rough timing for…

  9. Stephen F. Austin could be a scary team to play in March

    Feb 24, 2014, 4:10 PM EDT

    (Stephen F. Austin)

    As we get closer to March, Southland leader Stephen F. Austin might be one of the scarier teams a program could potentially face in the NCAA Tournament. At 25-2 — and 14-0 in the Southland with a three-game lead — the Lumberjacks have won 22 consecutive games and are winning by an average of 13.8…

    GAME OF THE DAY: No. 4 Syracuse at Maryland, 7:00 p.m. The Orange will take their two-game losing streak to College Park to take on a Maryland team that is one marquee win away from being back in the bubble conversation. This will be a test for the Orange. Just 48 hours ago, they were…

    You probably haven’t seen Stetson play much this season — 7-21 teams in the Atlantic Sun aren’t exactly the biggest TV draw — but that’s doesn’t mean there isn’t anything to see. Willie Green, a 6-foot-6 senior forward, is one of the best dunkers you’ve never seen. If that video isn’t prove enough, take a…

  12. Referee Tony Greene speaks with SI about end of Duke-Syracuse game

    Feb 24, 2014, 2:25 PM EDT

    Syracuse v Duke

    The ejection seen ’round the world happened on Saturday night, as Jim Boeheim lost his mind over a call, got himself tossed and then became a meme. All in a day’s work, I guess. What was lost in the madness of Boeheim’s overreaction, however, was whether or not the right call was actually made. Seth…

  13. POSTERIZED: Aaron Gordon, high-flyer (VIDEO)

    Arizona v San Diego State

    We all know Aaron Gordon has ‘jumping off a trampoline’ hops, and on Saturday night he showed them off. Take a look. His head is at the rim: The key for Arizona, however, is that Saturday night featured Gordon scoring 23 points on 10-for-13 shooting while hitting a pair of threes. If he becomes a…

    Florida has not lost a college basketball game in almost three months.  Only undefeated Wichita State owns a longer streak.  So it’s no surprise that both the Gators and Shockers remain No. 1 seeds in today’s bracket.  Given back-to-back losses by Syracuse, it’s also not surprising to find Florida as the top overall seed with…

    It may sound weird to say this, but Julius Randle was the most important player on the floor for the Wildcats in Saturday’s win over LSU despite the fact that he managed just eight points on 3-for-8 shooting. He guarded Johnny O’Bryant, the LSU big man that torched the Wildcats in their first meeting in…

    PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Frank Kaminsky, Wisconsin I made a joke on twitter during Wisconsin’s win over Iowa on Saturday, saying, essentially, that if you’re a 6-foot-10 stiff, you should go to play for Bo Ryan because he’ll make you awesome in three years. I thought it was funny, because Wisconsin always manages to churn…

    Drake v Wichita State

    Arguing over whether or not Wichita State deserves to be the No. 1 team in the country is a conversation that is going to overtake college hoops over the next couple of weeks. Here’s my take: Florida deserves to be the No. 1 team in the country this week, even with their struggles over the…

    Nine days ago the Arizona State Sun Devils earned a signature victory for their resume, beating then-No. 2 Arizona 69-66 in overtime.
