    Miami’s run in this 2013 NCAA tournament isn’t over yet, but Saturday it added another piece to the team it will sending to the floor next season. Owens Community College forward James Kelly tweeted that he would be transferring to Coral Gables for the start of the 2013-14 season. “Just verbally committed to @CanesHoops i will…

  6. The wild West region gets more wild with loss by No. 1 Gonzaga

    Mar 24, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Marshall Henderson

    In case your West region wasn’t wacky enough after the Round of 64, Saturday’s games cemented this quarter of the bracket’s status as the most unpredictable in the 2013 NCAA tournament. It began with the No. 14-seeded Harvard Crimson, who shocked the Mountain West and the country by taking down trendy Final Four pick New…

  7. Tourney Preview: Will we see another No. 1 seed go down?

    Mar 24, 2013, 7:00 AM EDT

    Villanova v North Carolina

    Yesterday’s schedule looked awesome and was mostly a dud. Today’s schedule? Less exciting than yesterday, which clearly means it’s going to be insanity. I’ll rank the games you need to watch: 1) 5:15 PM (8) North Carolina vs (1) Kansas CBS: Let’s start with the obvious: Roy Williams was the head coach at Kansas. He then…

  9. Late Night Snacks: Recapping tonight’s Round of 32 action

    Mar 24, 2013, 1:42 AM EDT

    Wichita State v Gonzaga

    Before I get into the meat of this post, we need to just go ahead and thanks Butler and Marquette, as well as Wichita State and Gonzaga. Because for much of Saturday — and, for that matter, basically the entire non-Florida Gulf Coast portion of this tournament — the basketball was a complete bore. The…

  10. UCLA rebuts reports that they’ve fired Ben Howland

    Mar 24, 2013, 1:16 AM EDT

    UCLA v Arizona - Quarterfinals

    UCLA released the following statement late on Saturday night: “Contrary to multiple media reports this evening, UCLA has not fired men’s basketball coach Ben Howland.” So I guess that means that this post is wrong? Wrong for now? Did he resign instead of get fired? Is it OK if I don’t care one iota about…

  11. Syracuse outlasts California to advance to Sweet 16

    Mar 24, 2013, 12:29 AM EDT

    Michael Carter-Williams

    Despite turning the ball over 15 times and shooting 26-of-41 from the free throw line in its Round of 32 matchup with California Saturday night, No. 4 Syracuse has advanced to the Sweet 16 with a 66-60 win at HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif. C.J. Fair led Syracuse with 18 points on 6-of-14 shooting from…

  12. Two freshman guards step up to lead Wichita State to the Sweet 16

    Mar 24, 2013, 12:01 AM EDT

    NCAA Basketball Tournament - Third Round - Salt Lake City

    Wichita State had blown it. After building a lead that grew as big as 13 points in the first half, the Shockers had watched as Gonzaga outscored them 36-15 over a 15 minute stretch that was capped by a 12-0 run. The surge pushed the Zags ahead 49-41. Their all-american Kelly Olynyk was playing like…

  13. No. 1 Gonzaga Shocked by No. 9 Wichita State

    Mar 23, 2013, 11:16 PM EDT

    Kelly Olynyk Gonzaga

    The last time Gonzaga had lost, we were only three weeks into 2013. That is no more. No. 9-seeded Wichita State climbed back from an eight-point second half deficit to upset No. 1-seeded Gonzaga, 76-70, knocking off the first No. 1 seed of the tournament and advancing to the Sweet 16 in the process at EnergySolutions…

  14. Marquette beats Butler as the Bulldogs wind up on the wrong end of Butler Magic

    Mar 23, 2013, 11:04 PM EDT

    Butler v Marquette

    There aren’t two teams in the country that have had more games in recent memory come down to some kind of ridiculous finish. And given that the first two times these teams met, Rotnei Clarke hit a running 25-footer over two Marquette defenders, it only made sense that the ending of Friday’s matchup between the…

  15. Marquette Sweet 16-bound after holding off Butler in tournament’s best game

    Mar 23, 2013, 10:43 PM EDT

    Marquette

    Around this time last season, Marquette was on its way to the Sweet 16 with Big East Player of the Year Jae Crowder and his right-hand man, Darius Johnson-Odom. Three different Marquette assistants sat on the sidelines and guard Vander Blue was a solid producer on a solid Big East team. One year later, Crowder…

  16. Oregon is proving the selection committee very, very wrong

    Mar 23, 2013, 9:33 PM EDT

    Oregon

    In a year that has been defined early on in part by the success of 12-seeds, Oregon stands out. Oregon stands out because, well, it should not have been a 12-seed. The Ducks came into this NCAA tournament after winning the Pac-12 tournament and finishing just one game out of first place in the regular…

  17. No. 12 seed Oregon knocks off No. 4 seed St. Louis, advances to Sweet 16

    Mar 23, 2013, 9:21 PM EDT

    Oregon v Saint Louis

    Damyeon Dotson finished with 23 points on 8-12 shooting, hitting 5-6 from three, while Arsalan Kazemi did a little bit of everything, as usual, finishing with eight points, 16 boards (seven offensive), three assists, two steals and two blocks as the No. 12 seed Oregon Ducks blew out No. 4 seed St. Louis, 74-57 on…

    Mar 23, 2013, 8:19 PM EDT

    Mark Lyons

    No. 14-seeded Harvard’s moment in the spotlight has ended, coming to its conclusion Saturday evening with a 74-51 loss to Arizona at EnergySolutions Arena in Salt Lake City, Utah. Arizona was led by the senior duo of Mark Lyons and Solomon Hill, who had 27 points and 13 points respectively. Those two carried the offensive attack…

  19. Louisville looked the part of a title contender in blowout of Colorado State

    Mar 23, 2013, 7:46 PM EDT

    Colorado State v Louisville

    The scariest part of No. 1 seed Louisville’s 82-56 win over No. 8 seed Colorado State on Saturday afternoon has nothing to do with the 26 point margin. It has nothing to do with the fact that Louisville scored 82 points on the Rams. It wasn’t that the Cardinals forced 19 turnovers against a team…

    Mar 23, 2013, 5:40 PM EDT

    Jamie Dixon

    To follow along with the 2013 Coaching Carousel, click here.

Dixon led Pittsburgh to a 24-9 overall record this season, including 12-6 in the…
