    GAME OF THE NIGHT: Belmont 99, Murray State 96 Belmont hasn’t been in the OVC very long, but their three games against Murray State have all been good.

    Utah v Arizona

    In their first game playing without Brandon Ashley, No. 2 Arizona survived. That’s really the only way to describe their 67-65 win over Oregon on Thursday night at the McKale Center. T.J. McConnell hit a three (finally!) to give Arizona a 62-60 lead in the final two minutes, while Nick Johnson hit a couple of…

    No. 9 Michigan State has been affected by injuries as much as any team in America this season. Branden Dawson’s out with a broken hand, Adreian Payne’s missed time with a foot injury and Keith Appling has a right wrist issue, and those are just three of the injuries that Tom Izzo’s had to account…

    Clemson transfer T.J. Sapp has been a welcome midseason addition for Murray State, averaging 14.0 points and helping to spark an 8-1 start in Ohio Valley place. The Racers lost at Belmont on Thursday night, but Sapp have the most memorable play of the night.

    Just over a week ago Johnny Jones’ LSU Tigers put together an impressive performance against then-No. 11 Kentucky, with Johnny O’Bryant III scoring 29 points to lead LSU to a much-needed win for their resume. Avoid the losses that can weigh down their resume, and those games are plentiful in the SEC, and LSU would…

  6. Second-half offensive execution does in No. 22 UConn in Cincinnati

    No. 22 UConn entered Thursday’s game at No. 7 Cincinnati shorthanded, with junior forward and second-leading scorer and rebounder DeAndre Daniels ruled out due to a case of back spasms. Without Daniels, and with the Bearcats among the nation’s best when it comes to offensive rebounding, at first glance it seemed as if rebounding would…

  7. Cincinnati’s Sean Kilpatrick is awesome, again, vs. UConn. When will we notice?

    Sean Kilpatrick, Corey Allen Jr.

    One of my favorite twitter feeds to follow is @NoEscalators. It’s run by a group of UConn fans who (I’m assuming) imbibe an adult beverage or nine during Husky games and let loose with often hilarious — usually quite vulgar — analysis of the game. Once in a while, however, the feed is actually quite…

  8. Report: UConn’s DeAndre Daniels unlikely to play against No. 7 Cincinnati

    DeAndre Daniels

    After holding out hope that junior forward DeAndre Daniels would be able to play against No. 7 Cincinnati on Thursday night, No. 22 UConn will be without its second-leading scorer for the American Athletic Conference matchup due to back spasms. The news was reported via Twitter by Dom Amore of the Hartford Courant. Senior forward…

    Wednesday night’s game against No. 5 San Diego State represented a great opportunity for the Boise State Broncos. With all five starters back from a team that reached the NCAA tournament a season ago, the Broncos entered the 2013-14 season with questions of whether or not they had the ability to contend for a Mountain…

    Vanderbilt has been one of the most surprising teams in the SEC this season, battling through a series of personnel issues to climb to 5-4 in conference play with a win over Tennessee. The highlight of the win? Damian Jones, one of the more underrated freshman in the conference, throwing down this powerful alley-oop.

    At this point in the season, Doug McDermott is the clear favorite for National Player of Year and, in the eyes of most observers, the guy that everyone would want taking a shot with the game on the line. That’s exactly what happened last week, when Greg McDermott drew up the Bill Self’s famous ‘Chop’…

    Cal Poly lost to UC-Irvine on Saturday night, but forward Chris Eversley had himself a solid game. 14 points and 10 boards isn’t bad. But what was memorable about that performance was that Eversley, who stands all of 6-foot-7, dunked on Mamadou N’Diaye, the 7-foot-6 center for the Anteaters.

    Having lost three straight games entering Saturday’s home game against No. 1 Arizona, California had an opportunity to not only grab a resume-building victory but also right the ship ahead of the stretch run. And the Golden Bears did just that, with Justin Cobbs’ fadeaway with nine tenths of a second remaining giving Cal the…

    Boise State entered Wednesday’s game against No. 5 San Diego State in need of a statement victory. Leon Rice’s team, having already lost seven games and sitting in the middle of the Mountain West standings, wouldn’t have many more opportunities for such a result with the conference not playing at the level it did a…
