    Where was Jack Cooley? That’s the question that every Notre Dame fan wants answered after the Irish lost their second straight game to an unranked opponent on Tuesday night, this one being a 67-63 defeat at the hands of St. John’s.

    There were some warranted questions in Lexington after Elston Turner came into Rupp Arena and dropped 40 points on Kentucky in an 83-71 Texas A&M win Saturday. Needing a bounce-back win it was the Kentucky backcourt, but not freshman Archie Goodwin, who gave the Wildcats a push late. Transfer Julius Mays hit back-to-back three-pointers in…

    Coach K is fired up about realignment again. He first made his negative feelings toward schools jumping conferences public in November after Maryland announced its move to the Big Ten.

    When No. 1 Duke fell to No. 20 NC State on the road Saturday, the Wolfpack faithful stormed the floor and celebrated the victory at center court.

    UMass suffered a massive blow over the weekend when Jesse Morgan injured his knee against St. Louis on Saturday evening.

    Massachusetts Saint Louis Basketball

    You won’t find an easier team in the country to root for than St. Louis. Let’s start with the fact that this team is dealing with the loss of their head coach, Rick Majerus. He stepped away from the program during the offseason to battle a heart condition that eventually took his life a month-and-a-half…

    Jan 15, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Georgia v Florida

    Is there a team battling more injury issues right now than Florida? Erik Murphy has a broken rib, missed the Yale game and came off the bench against Georgia.

    Continental Tire Las Vegas Invitational - Day 1 - UNLV v USC

    My day has officially been made. Just hours after USC announced on their website the decision to fire head coach Kevin O’Neill, they made another posting: on the USC jobs site, the university announced that they were accepting applicants for the head coaching position of the Men’s Basketball team. Minimum qualifications? Nothing. Seriously. Nothing’s listed…

    Jan 15, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT


    While the meaningful games on Monday nights in January and February almost always fall on Big Mondays, they are far from the only games being played on those nights. Both the MEAC and SWAC — MEACtion and SWACtion, if you will — play their leagues games on Monday nights, in part because it allows them…

  15. Louisville making a push for the top overall seed in our latest bracket

    Jan 15, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    South Florida v Louisville

    Healthy and hungry, the Louisville Cardinals are pushing toward the top position on the s-curve.  Duke retains that position for another week.  The Blue Devils’ overall body of work remains impressive, and Ryan Kelly’s foot injury is a bigger concern than a close loss to NC State in Raleigh.  If Kelly doesn’t return healthy, the…

  16. The Morning Mix

    Jan 15, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Not too much action on the hardwood last night. Louisville beat UConn. Kansas beat Baylor.

But despite a light smattering of hoops action, there are a plethora of news items we need to get to. Lets…

  18. Ben McLemore injures ankle in Kansas win over Baylor

    Jan 15, 2013, 12:07 AM EDT

    Baylor v Kansas

    No. 4 Kansas looked every bit like the No. 4 team in the country on Monday night. Their defense held Baylor to — get this — 23.2% shooting from the floor in a 61-44 win, getting 17 points and eight boards from star freshman Ben McLemore who continued his all-american caliber season.

    Jan 14, 2013, 11:09 PM EDT

    Kevin O'Neill

    So the three-and-a-half year tenure of Kevin O’Neill ended today at USC. First of all, it’s never good to see a coach, and especially a good guy like O’Neill, lose their job. Here’s to hoping he lands on his feet quickly, which he should. He’s a fantastic basketball mind. But what cost him his job?…

    Jan 14, 2013, 10:09 PM EDT

    Rotnei Clarke, Ronald Roberts, Jr.

    So much for Rotnei Clarke being taken to “another county” to miss Saturday’s game. Butler announced Monday night that the Bulldogs’ leading scorer will miss the next two games with a sprained neck.
