    As was the case last season, the Seton Hall Pirates have been unable to avoid the injury bug for much of the 2013-14 season. Patrik Auda, Fuquan Edwin and Aaron Geramipoor all missed time due to injury, and the same went for senior center Eugene Teague after he suffered a terrifying fall in the Pirates’…

    South Carolina’s 75-67 loss at Texas A&M on Wednesday was the third straight for Frank Martin’s team, and on Thursday the school announced that they suffered a personnel loss in the game as well. Guard Tyrone Johnson, one of three players averaging 11.2 points per game to lead the way for the Gamecocks, suffered a…

  3. Rasheed Sulaimon on benching vs. Michigan: Coach K ‘made the right call’

    Jan 16, 2014, 4:53 PM EDT

    Virginia v Duke

    Rasheed Sulaimon’s sophomore season has not been what he thought it would be. It’s not what we all thought it would be, either. Duke’s talented shooting guard has had trouble this season adapting to being forced into being a role player, a guy that is the third or fourth option offensively to a couple of…

    Bryant v Ohio State

    ROB DAUSTER: I don’t gamble, because when I do gamble, I always end up, ahem, making a donation. But we’re going to be doing a little betting today. I’m going to pick the five teams I think are most likely to win the national title, and you’re going to tell me why you’d take those…

    Jan 16, 2014, 3:05 PM EDT

    Jabari Parker, Mike Tobey

    What in the world has happened to Jabari Parker? Three weeks ago, he was being hailed as the best offensive weapon in the history of college basketball. Ok, that may be overstating it just a bit, but there really wasn’t much that Parker wasn’t doing on the offensive end of the floor. Put a smaller…

    There was a report out yesterday that the NCAA would be deciding soon on whether or not to waive an obscure rule that would force teams in smaller leagues to forfeit games. In summation: Division I teams cannot play more than four non-Division I teams in a season. Transitional Division I members (Abilene Christian, Incarnate…

  7. Is Cal the second-best team in the Pac-12?

    Jan 16, 2014, 12:01 PM EDT

    Grant Gibbs, Jabari Bird

    We know Arizona sits at the top of the Pac-12 Power Rankings right now. That much is obvious. They’re the No. 1 team in the country, and the Pac-12 doesn’t currently have anyone else sitting in the top 20. That’s not a tough one to figure out. What is tough, however, is trying to determine…

    GAME OF THE NIGHT: No. 25 UCLA at No. 21 Colorado, 8:00 p.m. Who is the second best team in the Pac-12? In the preseason, Colorado looked like they would be Arizona’s biggest challenger, but then they lost Spencer Dinwiddie. Oregon has been putting up a ton of points this season, but they don’t play…

    Some of you that are new to the college hoops blogosphere may not remember this story, but I certainly do. Three years ago, during the summer of 2011, the Louisville blog Card Chronicle discovered that there was an elite Class of 2012 recruit that went by the name Chicken Knowles.

    GAME OF THE NIGHT: UNLV 76, New Mexico 73 After playing poorly in home losses to Air Force and Nevada the Runnin’ Rebels needed to circle the wagons with games at New Mexico and San Diego State this week. On Wednesday night UNLV brought the effort needed to win a game of this magnitude and…

  12. Unless No. 12 Baylor’s defense improves, they’re not a Big 12 contender

    Baylor  v Texas Tech

    Jaye Crockett led five players in double figures with 19 points for Texas Tech as the Red Raiders blew out No. 12 Baylor at home. The final score was 82-72, but trust me when I tell you, that doesn’t do the beatdown justice. It took 30 minutes for the Bears to show up on Wednesday…

    Six days ago the UNLV Runnin’ Rebels put forth one of their poorer performances of the season, losing at home to rival Nevada with the Wolf Pack meeting little resistance on the offensive end of the floor. With a lengthy (by in-season standards) layoff ahead of road games at New Mexico and No. 10 San…

    Chaz Williams, Eric Mika

    At what point do we start to get concerned about No. 16 UMass? The Minutemen went down to Fairfax, VA, tonight and knocked off George Mason, 88-87, in a thrilling, come-from-behind win. UMass was trailing for much of the second half, but Chaz Williams made every play in the final minute, leading UMass back from…

    Maryland just played the most important half of basketball that they’ll play all season long. The Terps had entered the night just 2-2 in league play — with wins over Boston College and Georgia Tech — and 10-7 overall. They had lost their last two games and had been beaten by every relevant team they…

    Facing a Georgetown squad with just ten available scholarship players, Xavier seemed poised to get back on track after suffering their first Big East loss at Creighton on Sunday afternoon. But things didn’t work out that way in the game’s first 20 minutes, with the combination of Georgetown’s hot three-point shooting and Xavier’s lack of…

    The plan for 7-footer Carson Shanks at Utah State was to redshirt this season, with the hope that the Minnesota native would gain some extra strength and as a result be able to compete with the more physical front courts of the Mountain West. However in December Shanks made the decision to transfer, with his…

    After winning just two games in Patriot League play last season the Navy Midshipmen had hopes of improving their standing within the league despite being picked to finish last in the preseason poll. That process became a lot tougher on Tuesday, as the Naval Academy made the decision to suspend leading scorer Tilman Dunbar for…
