    Bob Huggins

    West Virginia knew what they were getting into when they decided to leave the Big East for the Big 12 prior to this year. The Big 12 is in the Midwest. Their teams are from Texas and Oklahoma and Kansas. That’s a long way for a team from West Virginia to go to play a…

    Aquille Carr may only be a 19-year old high school senior, but he’s already a legend, both on the internet and in the city of Baltimore. That’s what happens when you’re all of 5-foot-6 and do things like this: The problem, however, is that while Carr’s highlights are ridiculous, watching him play in person is…

    Feb 24, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    Keith Appling

    On the heels of a 1-of-8 night in No. 4 Michigan State’s loss to No. 1 Indiana on Tuesday night, junior point guard Keith Appling needed to bounce back if the Spartans were to win at No. 18 Ohio State.

  14. UCLA needs David Wear to build on Sunday’s performance at USC

    Feb 24, 2013, 6:21 PM EDT

    Washington v UCLA

    Already lacking front court depth, UCLA being without the services of forward Travis Wear for their game at cross-city rival USC seemed to give the Trojans a shot at sweeping the season series for the second time in the last four seasons. However the Bruins (20-7, 10-4) left little doubt on Sunday afternoon, beating the…

    At the beginning of February the Cincinnati Bearcats looked to be well on their way to not only reaching the NCAA tournament but possibly grabbing a “protected” seed as well. But since their 65-59 win at Seton Hall on February 2 the Bearcats (19-9, 7-8 Big East) have lost five of six, and the breathing…

While Oladipo has gotten the majority of the talk, Michigan guard Trey Burke continues to produce and did so…
