    Providence won’t get many big opportunities to secure a Big East win on the road this season. They got one Sunday against Seton Hall and they capitalized. Bryce Cotton scored 23 points and grabbed nine rebounds as Providence cruised past Seton Hall, 67-55, at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. The Friars were dominant on…

    Kwame Vaughn

    Cal State Fullerton senior Kwame Vaughn was just 2-of-11 from the floor Saturday against UC Riverside, but one of those two shots won his team the game. With under 10 seconds remaining, Vaughn took control near mid-court, dribbled down the left side of the lane, stepped back, and hit a fallaway jumper at the buzzer…

    Trey Burke

    Game of the Day: No. 2 Michigan vs. No. 15 Ohio State (1:30 p.m. ET, CBS) With Duke’s loss yesterday to NC State, Michigan will become the nation’s No. 1 team if it can get out of Columbus with a tough road victory. But, despite being ranked No. 2 in the country, Michigan is the…

    Air Force v UNLV

    Game of the Night No. 16 San Diego State 79, Colorado State 72 (OT): Wonderful, classic game. In the first half, SDSU’s speedy, athletic offense had its way, staking the home team to a 41-23 halftime lead. In the second, Colorado State ramped up their formidable defense and clawed back into it, tying things up…

    Chase Tapley

    They don’t call it the Wild (Mountain) West for nothing. OK, nobody calls it that. But this game was a nail-biter until the waning moments. It took overtime for No. 16 San Diego State to seal a 79-72 win over league rival Colorado State. Jamaal Franklin had 23 points to lead all scorers in this…

    Preseason CAA favorite Drexel is now 1-3 in league play, after dropping a road trip to Harrisonburg, VA. The James Madison Dukes laid a 51-43 setback on the Dragons and moved to 3-1 in the Colonial. That puts them in odd company in the above .500 club, alongside Towson and Hofstra, two teams picked to…

  7. Ole Miss 2-0 in SEC after 15-point dismantling of No. 10 Missouri

    Jan 12, 2013, 10:35 PM EDT


    They don’t take kindly to strangers down in SEC country. Even if your school recently signed a legally-binding agreement to join said conference. There was certainly a glaring lack of hospitality in Oxford, Mississippi tonight, where the unranked Rebs laid a 64-49 hiding on league newbie No. 10 Missouri in the Tigers’ first inter-league game…

    Khalif Wyatt

    St. Louis has been on an astonishing run since the sudden death of former Billikens coach Rick Majerus. That’s nine wins in a row. Billikens coach Jim Crews claimed, in a recent conversation with CBS’ Matt Norlander, that they hadn’t even given it a thought. Whether they knew it or not, the streak is over.…

  9. Elston Turner scores 40, A&M beats Kentucky at Rupp

    Jan 12, 2013, 6:22 PM EDT

    Elston Turner, Willie Cauley-Stein

    Remember when that guy in Titanic shouted “Iceberg, straight ahead!”? That guy should be courtside at Rupp Arena these days. Not only did Kentucky lose in their raucous homeplace again, proving that a December drop to Baylor was no fluke, but they allowed a monster scoring night from a player whose NBA draft stock may…

    Jan 12, 2013, 6:02 PM EDT

    Duke v North Carolina State

    Game of the Day No. 20 NC State 84, No. 1 Duke 76: So, if you were waiting for an answer to the question “how do you beat Duke?”, the answer is “wait for guys to get hurt.” OK, that’s not fair, but Duke did suffer a bit without Ryan Kelly, and when Seth Curry…

    Butler’s gotten their Atlantic 10 tenure started off the right way. After winning at St. Joe’s this week, the Bulldogs went into Dayton Arena and knocked off the Flyers 79-73 on Saturday afternoon. Making the win all the more impressive is the fact that they played the majority of the game without Rotnei Clarke, who…

  12. No. 12 Illinois gets embarrassed at Wisconsin

    Tracy Abrams, Tyler Griffey, Sam McLaurin

    This is the Illinois that we all expected to see this season. The Illini, who are currently ranked No. 12 in the country, fell to 1-3 in Big Ten play on Saturday afternoon after losing at Wisconsin. It’s not the fact that Illinois lost that is troubling; it’s how they did it. Wisconsin jumped out…

    Jan 12, 2013, 4:40 PM EDT

    Travis Wear

    Travis Wear is the best 15-foot jump shooter in the country. I felt that way heading into Saturday, and I’m even more convinced of it after Wear scored 23 points, hitting 11-17 from the floor, as the Bruins went into Boulder and knocked off Colorado, 78-75. Jordan Adams and Shabazz Muhammad combined for 32 points…

Boatright and Napier have been the engine of the Connecticut offense all season and, despite a tough matchup with Eric Atkins and Jerian…

  15. NC State beats Duke, storms floor, knocks over kid in wheelchair?

    Jan 12, 2013, 3:36 PM EDT


    NC State picked up a big win over No. 1 Duke today, handing the short-handed Blue Devils their first loss of the season and, in the process, picking up a win that could end up paying massive dividends in March. You don’t think a win over a top five team will look good on a…

  16. No. 5 Indiana barely hangs on against No. 8 Minnesota

    Jan 12, 2013, 2:57 PM EDT

    Victor Oladipo

    It’s tough for a team to feel good about themselves after losing a game on the road in which they were down 23 points at halftime, but that’s exactly how the Gophers should feel after their 88-81 loss at Indiana on Saturday afternoon. Because, let’s face it, when the Hoosiers get rolling at home, there…

    Screen Shot 2013-01-12 at 2.05.19 PM

    At home against a No. 1 team that was without one of its biggest assets, this was No. 20 NC State’s best opportunity to make a statement, and it did. The interior combination of Richard Howell and C.J. Leslie took control in the second half to hand No. 1 Duke its first loss of the…

    Syracuse forward James Southerland is out indefinitely due to eligibility issues, the school announced Saturday. The school cited privacy laws in not disclosing the specific reason, but according to the Syracuse Post-Standard, academics could be at the root of the problem.
