    Well, this isn’t the way you follow an impressive win. Coming off a big win on the road at Cincinnati, New Mexico trailed 33-13 at halftime and left St. Louis with a 60-46 loss. The Lobos shot 31.8-percent from the field and some of the key weapons for New Mexico had off nights. Tony Snell…

    Indiana was able to hold off Iowa in a 69-65 victory at Carver-Hawkeye Arena on Monday, and they did it without anything from Jordan Hulls, offensively. Literally.

The Cowboys’ second leading scorer Luke Martinez broke his hand in an off-campus incident and is out indefinitely, according to Jason King of ESPN.com.

    It may be New Year’s Eve, but conference realignment never sleeps. Boise State will not be leaving the Mountain West after all. Their football program will not be heading to the Big East. Their non-football sports will not be heading to the Big West. We will not be laughing about a school being in both…

    The SEC had another awful, awful day on Sunday. Alabama lost at home to Tulane 53-50. That’s the same Tulane that became the scapegoat for the breakup of the Big East after the Catholic 7 made it clear they weren’t happy about the addition of such a … “notable” basketball program. But that wasn’t the…

    Alabama VCU Basketball

    VCU’s ridiculously ‘havocy’ this season: VCU may not be sitting atop the Top 25 this season, but that doesn’t change the fact that this is the best team that Shaka Smart has had in his tenure in Richmond. Let’s look past the fact that, you know, this group has the kind of talent that you…

    NCAA Basketball Tournament - Indiana  v Kentucky

    Sometimes, when we’re watching them and writing about them and cheering for them, it’s tough to remember that college basketball coaches and players are people, too. They root for their hometown NFL team. They get excited about their mom’s homemade cookies. They look forward to Christmas with their family. And if they see you stuck…

    Player of the Week: Tyler Haws, BYU Haws has played well all season for the Cougars, embracing the role as Dave Rose’s go-to guy, but I’m not sure many people expected the Jimmeresque performance that Haws put on in BYU’s 97-71 win over Virginia Tech on Saturday. Haws finished with 42 points on 14-25 shooting,…
