    Jan 11, 2014, 6:13 PM EDT

    calipari

    Given how young No. 14 Kentucky is, with just one upperclassman (Jarrod Polson) part of the playing rotation, there were bound to be growing pains during non-conference play. And there are still some lessons to be learned by this group as the move deeper into SEC play with an eye towards the NCAA tournament. Saturday’s…

    Jan 11, 2014, 4:32 PM EDT

    Duke v Clemson

    Duke entered this week as the No. 16 team in the country, the first time in more than six full seasons that the Blue Devils found themselves sitting outside of the top ten of the AP poll. That ranking isn’t incorrect, either. Duke is 1-2 in the ACC for the first time since 2007 after…

    Jan 11, 2014, 3:59 PM EDT

    Florida Gators v Arkansas Razorbacks

    Saturday’s SEC road contest at Arkansas could have easily been a letdown for No. 10 Florida. The Gators were missing leading scorer Casey Prather and multiple other Gators were banged up, including Scottie Wilbekin (ankle), Patric Young (knees) and Michael Frazier II (calf). But that didn’t slow the Gators down as they held off Arkansas…

  10. No. 2 Syracuse’s zone stifles North Carolina’s offense for an easy win

    Jan 11, 2014, 2:05 PM EDT

    North Carolina v Syracuse

    On paper, it appeared that unbeaten No. 2 Syracuse would have a huge advantage over North Carolina during Saturday’s ACC contest because of the Orange’s signature 2-3 zone going against a perimeter-scoring-starved Tar Heel team. But could you really count out North Carolina after wins over Michigan State, Louisville and Kentucky earlier this season? But…

    Dwayne Evans

    For all the talk about UMass and VCU this season, might the Atlantic 10 title still run through St. Louis? It certainly looked like it on Saturday afternoon, as the Billikens went into Dayton and smacked around the Flyers, winning 67-59 in a game that where Jim Crews’ club had a double-digit lead for much…
