    No. 15 Texas entered Saturday’s game at Kansas State riding a seven-game win streak, with Rick Barnes’ team not only well on its way to earning an NCAA tournament bid also sitting just a game behind Kansas in the Big 12 standings.

    This is what we call getting Mozgov’d. Don’t know what “Mozgov’d” means? It’s when you dunk on someone by throwing the ball through the rim instead of the standard ‘grab the rim and scream’ move. Blake Griffin will go down in history as its inventor.

    After winning 28 games and the Atlantic 10 regular season and tournament titles a season ago, No. 13 Saint Louis had two personnel losses to account for. Gone were two of their three double-digit scorers in Cody Ellis and Kwamain Mitchell, and those certainly aren’t departures to be glossed over. However the Billikens did return four…

    No. 10 Michigan has won games with Derrick Walton struggling. They’ve won when Caris LeVert doesn’t play well or when Zak Irvin is having one of his off-nights. Most importantly, they’ve survived the loss of Mitch McGary and Glenn Robinson III’s periodic disappearances. What they can’t survive, however, is a no-show performance from Nik Stauskas,…

  13. What should we make of No. 25 Pitt?

    Feb 8, 2014, 3:03 PM EDT

    Jaye Crockett, Lamar Patterson

    I’ve figured it out. I have the answer. I know who this Pitt team is. They’re the guy who uses a photoshopped picture of himself from 15 years ago on his Match.com profile, over-exaggerating life accomplishments and his salary to make himself appear more attractive to potential dates. The Panthers entered the weekend as the…

    Doug McDermott

    Creighton didn’t play their crispest game of the season. They shot just 46.4% from the field and 28% from three — two fairly decent percentages for most teams — and got hammered on the offensive and defensive glass all night. That Doug McDermott guy, though? He was in his usual form, leading Creighton to a…
