    If you didn’t watch No. 3 Louisville’s 70-48 win over the College of Charleston on Saturday afternoon, if you simply took at gander at the box score after getting your fill of college football, you would think that the short-handed Cardinals made short work of the Cougars. Hey, they won by 22 points, right? Russ…

    Louisville opened its season with a 70-48 win over Charleston on Saturday afternoon in a home win, but it wasn’t always as easy as the score would appear. The defending champion Cardinals came into the game without suspended forward Chane Behanan or injured wing Luke Hancock and both could return soon but for awhile the…

    It was known that Miami would struggle this season after their ACC championship and Sweet 16 run by losing their top six players. The Hurricane defense looked great in their opening game, but Miami’s offense struggled as they lost at home to St. Francis (NY) 66-62 in overtime. The Hurricanes were 0-for-15 from the three-point…

  8. Saturday’s Pregame Shootaround: Quiet Saturday follows a loaded opening night

    Nov 9, 2013, 9:00 AM EDT

    Kevin Ware, Rick Pitino

    GAME OF THE DAY: Charleston at No. 3 Louisville, 1:00 p.m. Charleston is one of the stronger mid-major programs out there but that doesn’t change the fact that it will be tough for the Cougars to hang with Louisville. It’s worth noting, however, that Charleston big man Adjehi Baru was actually a more highly-touted recruit…

    What better way to kick off the college hoops season that with a late-night, half-court buzzer-beater in overtime? Allen Huddleston of Fresno State capped of a ridiculous game with a prayer from 45 feet to beat UC-Irvine, which was barely more ridiculous than the final minute of the extra frame, which saw five — yes,…

    It’s games like these between two fringe Top 25 teams — Baylor is ranked No. 25 in the AP Poll, while Colorado received 83 votes — that make or break resumes come March. In Dallas on Friday evening, Baylor grinded out a 72-60 victory against Colorado. The Bears led for much of the game, and…

    If we are paying attention to individual play in the opening night of the college basketball season, the nation’s eyes were in three different gyms to watch the top three freshman perform: Kentucky’s Julius Randle, Duke’s Jabari Parker, and Kansas’ Andrew Wiggins. Randle and Parker both impressed in their college debuts, and Wiggins did just…

    Nov 8, 2013, 10:28 PM EDT

    SEC Basketball Tournament - Quarterfinals - Vanderbilt v Kentucky

    Kentucky isn’t there yet. They looked sloppy and careless at times and are still learning how to play with each other, but it was evident in the Wildcats’ 89-57 victory over UNC-Asheville that John Calipari has a special group on his hands. Kentucky didn’t need to beat the Bulldogs by 32 points in order for…

    In what has become a nice non-conference game between these two North Carolina schools since the Stephen Curry days at Davidson, Duke had little problem with the Wildcats in the season opener for both teams winning 111-77. The Duke offense was clicking on all cylinders, and seemingly everything they threw up found the bottom of…

    UConn Maryland Basketball

    For the second time in two seasons, Maryland saw their bid for an upset at the Barclays Center on the season’s opening night fall just short. And for the second time in two seasons, it was the surprising play of a relative unknown that made the difference. Last season, Kentucky pulled out a 72-69 win…

    On the outset, it would appear that Illinois was stealing Taylor University’s thunder by remaining silent for the beginning of their game against Nebraska-Omaha tonight. and then promptly erupting in cheers when the Illini scored their tenth point. On the Friday before final exams each year at Taylor University, the students gather in the quaint Odle…

    It only took until the third game of the college basketball season to get our first real, honest-to-goodness, in-a-game-that-matters POSTERIZED. Ladies and Gentlemen, this is VMI’s Jordan Weethee. (MORE: Watch all of this year’s #POSTERIZED’s here) Here’s the crazy part of Weethee’s Blake Griffin-esque dunk: he missed the 2012-2013 season after tearing his ACL, the…

    Minnesota Boys All State Basketball

    Stanford made another nice addition to their front court on Friday, as 6-foot-7 bruiser Reid Travis committed to Johnny Dawkins and the Cardinal. Travis was one of my favorite players I saw this summer. He’s a bit undersized at around 6-foot-7, but he’s built like a truck and is tireless attacking the glass on both…
