    Iowa State is not yet a lock for the NCAA tournament, not when they have an RPI in the 50s, exactly one road win in the top 200, and a trip to West Virginia before a date with Oklahoma in the first round of the Big 12 tournament. As entertaining as the Cyclones are to…

    When C.J. McCollum went down with a broken foot in a January non-conference game against VCU, it appeared one of the major storylines in mid-major basketball had gone down with it. But that’s not the way it turned out. Bucknell won the regular season championship outright, but Lehigh continued to play strong basketball, with Lafayette…

    Deshaun Thomas

    There haven’t been many teams in the country that are quite are difficult to get a grasp on as No. 14 Ohio State. Early on, it seemed pretty simple, frankly.

    As crazy as it may seem seeing as the current No. 1 team in the country resides in the WCC, there’s a pretty good chance that this conference could end up being just a one-bid league this year. Gonzaga has been fantastic, and while they may not actually be the best team or the national…

    Yesterday, we took a look at Boise State, a team that has dealt with as many injuries and suspension as any team in the country.

    Stymied by a stifling Ohio State defensive performance, Indiana, the nation’s most potent offense, struggled to their worse performance on that end of the floor this season. The Buckeyes held the Hoosiers to a season-low 58 points. There has only been one game this year where Indiana scored less than the 0.95 PPP they mustered…
