    While No. 10 Iowa had just two players, guard Roy Devyn Marble and forward Aaron White, averaging double figures entering Wednesday night’s game at No. 21 Michigan they don’t lack for scoring options. The Hawkeyes have five other players averaging between 7.1 and 9.9 points per game, with any of those players capable of joining…

    Do I even need to say anything here? Probably not. I will provide you with this bit on insight: if Wisconsin’s perimeter defense doesn’t get better, this won’t be the last time that their front court gets brutalized like this:

  3. Rebounding numbers stand out in No. 18 Duke’s win over Miami

    After dropping a 72-59 decision at Clemson 11 days ago, No. 18 Duke was 1-2 in ACC play and looked like a team in search of some answers. Jabari Parker wasn’t playing at the same level he displayed during much of non-conference play, and as a team the Blue Devils still had to get better…

    Wichita State is top five in the country, and all anyone talks about is how good Fred VanVleet is and how improved Ron Baker is and how talented Cleanthony Early is. Well, Tekele Cotton is the team’s best defender and their heart and soul. He wants some attention, too. He’ll get it after this dunk.…

  6. Kendall Anthony, perimeter defense result in Richmond beating No. 12 UMass

    No. 12 UMass had seemingly made a habit of digging themselves a hole in the first half, only to find a way to climb out of it in the second half. In each of their three Atlantic 10 victories ahead of Wednesday’s game at Richmond the Minutemen trailed in the second half, with Chaz Williams…

  7. Could Bubu Palo’s status be determined by Iowa Supreme Court?

    Bubu Palo

    Just six days ago Iowa State guard Bubu Palo received the news he’d been hoping for, with a Webster County judge ruling that he was to be reinstated to the team immediately. Palo, whose appeal of the school’s decision to dismiss him from the program was denied by the Iowa Board of Regents, rejoined the…

    After starting Big Ten play with wins over Indiana and Penn State, Illinois has hit a rough patch in the form of a four-game losing streak. The most recent of those defeats came on Saturday night, with the Fighting Illini dropping a 78-62 decision to No. 3 Michigan State in Champaign. On what was a…

  9. The Chase for 180: Phil Forte III’s shooting key factor for Oklahoma State

    Jan 22, 2014, 4:00 PM EDT

    forte

    Who is the best shooter in the country? It’s a tough question to answer, isn’t it? Does being a “shooter” simply mean merely being a high-level marksman from beyond the arc? Can a player who thrives in the mid-range but rarely ventures out into three-point land be eligible? How heavily should we be valuing stats like…

    GAME OF THE NIGHT: No. 10 Iowa at No. 21 Michigan, 7:00 p.m. We all think we know that Michigan State is the best team in the Big Ten when they’re healthy. But who’s second? Who will give the Spartans a run for the league title? The trendy pick two weeks ago would have been…

    Wyoming announced on Wednesday that head coach Larry Shyatt has fallen ill and will not take part in tonight’s game against Air Force. He’s in Colorado Springs, but Shyatt made the decision that it would be best for him not to coach tonight. Assistant Allen Edwards, who was in charge of the scout and game-plan…

    Alex Poythress seems to finally be waking up from the slumber that has left people in basketball circles wondering why this kid with loads of athleticism just can’t seem to put it all together. He finished with 16 points on Tuesday night, sparking Kentucky second half surge that put away Texas A&M. That run included,…

    The Wooden Award released their Midseason Top 25 list on Wednesday. Most of the names that you would expect to be on there are. But there are some notable headscratchers, at least in my eyes. Andrew Wiggins is on this list. Joel Embiid isn’t. Granted, Wiggins has arguably been better than Embiid if you factor…

  14. Towson’s Pat Skerry, Marshall’s Tom Herrion push for Autism Awareness Day

  15. Is Michigan State’s inability to get healthy a concern?

    Adreian Payne

    If Michigan State can find some way to get themselves to stay healthy for three weeks in March, I’m not sure there is anyone in the country that would be more likely to win an NCAA title. Here’s how I look at it: Gary Harris, Adreian Payne, Keith Appling and Branden Dawson are as talented…

    Jimmy Giroux is 10 years old and has already been through more in life than any of us could imagine. He beat leukemia. It took a lot out of him, however, and the disease and corresponding treatments did a lot of damage to his body, including effecting his growth. Which is why what Norwich University…

    This is terrific. Ethan Wragge is the most unique player in college basketball. He’s Creighton’s “center”, but he rarely, if ever, steps inside the three-point line. He’s scored more than 1,000 points in his career and has attempted 53 two-pointers, a fact made all the more wild when you consider that he never stepped beyond…

    Texas A&M v Kentucky

    It wasn’t always pretty and it wasn’t always exciting, but No. 14 Kentucky did the job they were supposed to do against Texas A&M on a snowy Tuesday night, dispatching the Aggies, 68-51. Billy Kennedy entered the night with a game-plan: to play the game at a snail’s pace, trying to keep the score in…
