  1. Late Night Snacks: Indiana, Oregon continue in wrong direction

    Jan 31, 2014, 1:38 AM EDT

    crean

    GAME OF THE NIGHT: UCLA 70, Oregon 68 It wasn’t pretty but the matchup between the Bruins and Ducks didn’t lack for drama. Travis Wear’s basket with 5.3 seconds remaining proved to be the difference as UCLA moved into sole possession of second place in the Pac-12. Wear (12 points) was one of three Bruins…

  2. It’s time for Indiana fans to start fretting about a trip to the NIT

    Jan 30, 2014, 11:47 PM EDT

    Indiana v Nebraska

    We’re approaching panic time for Indiana Hoosier fans. On Thursday night, Tom Crean’s club was outscored 41-23 in the second half by Nebraska, blowing a 13-point halftime lead in a 60-55 loss that dropped them to 13-8 overall and 3-5 in the Big Ten. That’s not a good thing, but what’s far more troubling is…

  3. Balanced attack leads No. 10 Michigan past Purdue

    Jan 30, 2014, 11:44 PM EDT

    Without Mitch McGary, the production of veteran big men Jon Horford and Jordan Morgan has become even more important for No. 10 Michigan. While neither needs to turn into a player who will post 20 points and ten rebounds on a nightly basis, as the Wolverines have other players more capable of scoring, they do…

    To follow along with the 2014 Coaching Carousel,¬†click here. After finishing the 2012-13 season with an 8-8 record in MEAC play, Delaware State was picked by the coaches to finish seventh in the 13-team league. Unfortunately for the Hornets things haven’t worked out to this point in the season, as they’re 0-6 in conference play…

  5. No. 12 Louisville blows golden chance for season-changing win

    Jan 30, 2014, 10:04 PM EDT

    Cincinnati v Louisville

    It sounds weird saying this about the No. 12 team in the country, but I actually liked what I saw from Louisville on Thursday night. Their press looked as good as it has all season long, forcing 20 Bearcat turnovers. Montrezl Harrell played really well in the low post, finishing with 18 points on 9-for-13…

  6. Veterans refuse to fold as No. 13 Cincinnati wins at No. 12 Louisville

    kilpatrick

    After Jermaine Sanders hit a jumper with 16:12 remaining to give No. 13 Cincinnati a 44-27 lead at No. 12 Louisville, Mick Cronin’s Bearcats looked poised to grab a two-game lead in American Athletic Conference play and do so in emphatic fashion. While the Bearcats are safely within both major national polls, there doesn’t seem…

  7. Winston Shepard III’s growth key for No. 5 San Diego State

    shepard

    Picked to finish fourth in the Mountain West’s preseason poll, No. 5 San Diego State has proven to be one of the nation’s biggest surprises of the 2013-14 season. Steve Fisher’s Aztecs, who are 18-1 on the season with their lone defeat coming against current No. 1 Arizona, own wins over Creighton and No. 6…

    DeAndre Daniels

    Two games after putting together his best performance of the season, scoring 31 points and grabbing 12 rebounds in a win over Temple, UConn junior forward DeAndre Daniels will miss the Huskies’ game against Houston on Thursday night due to a sprained ankle. The news was first reported by Andrew Catalon of CBS Sports. Daniels…

    During Notre Dame’s loss to Florida State on January 21 sophomore forward Austin Burgett experienced an irregular heartbeat, and according to the Chicago Tribune he remained hopeful that he would be able to delay undergoing a corrective procedure until the end of the season. Unfortunately that was not the case, as two days after the…

    @NikeBasketball

    Nike will be rolling out (sick!!!) throwback jerseys for some of their biggest, most recognizable programs throughout the course of the season. I’m not a huge fan of the uniforms with different color jersey tops and bottoms, but that Michigan State uniform? North Carolina? Very nice. Here’s the schedule for when they will be worn:…

    February is right around the corner, which means that we’ve officially hit the stretch run of the college hoops season.¬† With a little more than a month left in the college basketball regular season, we figured today would be as good as any to take a look at stretch-run Final Four picks: Raphielle Johnson: Arizona:…

  12. Travis Ford asks Oklahoma State students to come to the games (VIDEO)

    Jan 30, 2014, 1:56 PM EDT

    Utah Valley v Oklahoma State

    Student attendance at Gallagher-Iba Arena has been a bit lackluster this season, and part of the reason was, apparently, an issue with certifying for tickets. It was difficult to do, and as a result, the kids weren’t coming to games. So Travis Ford announced this afternoon that a certification requirement for tickets was no longer…

  13. ‘Chaos’ has yet to take hold, but it hasn’t stopped Will Wade from winning at Chattanooga

    Will Wade_Mattia

    When Will Wade was hired at Chattanooga in May, he had a vision for the program that he wanted to build. Just 31 years young, Wade had spent the last four years as an assistant on Shaka Smart’s staff at VCU, watching the way that the basketball-mad community of Richmond embraced ‘Havoc’. It originated as…

    Ohio State v Michigan State

    No. 23 Ohio State has lost five of their last six games, and Wednesday night’s may have been the toughest to swallow. The Buckeyes lost to Penn State. At home. After blowing a seven-point lead in the final three minutes, giving up a game-tying three on a defensive breakdown and blowing a three-point lead with…

  15. POSTERIZED: Arnaud-William Adala Moto has lots of names, hops (VIDEO)

    Jan 30, 2014, 11:27 AM EDT

    Syracuse v Wake Forest

    Arnaud-William Adala Moto threw down a nasty dunk on Baye Moussa Keita, who came up one name short of being able to block the shot. I’m shocked that he didn’t get a technical, however. Usually screaming in an opponent’s face like that is the easiest way to get lit up. No. 2 Syracuse, as expected,…

    Cincinnati Memphis

    No. 13 Cincinnati will make the trek down to the Yum! Center to take on No. 12 Louisville tonight, and they’ll be doing it at full strength. Justin Jackson, the Bearcat center and the anchor of one of the best defenses in the country, will start tonight. He rolled his ankle and managed all of…

  18. More injury woes for George Washington as Joe McDonald’s hip acts up

    Jan 30, 2014, 8:56 AM EDT

    Georgia v George Washington

    George Washington just can’t seem to shake the injury bug. Earlier this year, it was Patricio Garino that missed time. He broke his finger, sat out a couple of games, reinjured the finger during a practice in California for the Wooden Legacy and missed four more games before finally getting healthy and becoming a key…

  19. Nebraska head coach Tim Miles helps a fan propose

    Jan 30, 2014, 8:24 AM EDT

    Ohio State v Nebraska

    It’s hard not to love Nebraska head coach Tim Miles. He’s funny, he’s enthusiastic, and he seemingly spends (wastes?) as much time on twitter as the rest of us. He tweets halftime updates during every game he coaches. He’s quick to crack a joke. Essentially, he not like the media-savvy robots that coach most major…

    Doug McDermott

    Doug McDermott relishes “incredible moment” from St. John’s win (Omaha World-Herald) After struggling offensively in Creighton’s win over Georgetown, Doug McDermott found his groove on Tuesday night against St. John’s. McDermott scored 39 points, capping the game with a three-pointer with 2.5 seconds remaining to give the Bluejays the three-point win. Sooners doing something no…
