    FIRST TEAM ALL-AMERICA Trey Burke, So. (Michigan) 19.1 ppg, 6.9 apg: Burke has been the engine that drives the nation’s second-most efficient offense, and he’s done so while playing on a team of spot-up shooters and big men without a post game.

    North Dakota State v Indiana

    Tom Crean was fired up after winning the outright Big Ten title when Jordan Morgan’s tip-in rolled off the rim on Sunday night.

    Quietly, Norfolk State has picked up where it left off last year. The Spartans shocked Missouri with a second-round (ahem, first round) victory in the NCAA Tournament as a two seed last season. This year, they’re 21-10 with perfect 16-0 conference record. Now it’s time for someone to earn the automatic bid. Norfolk State has…

    The finish was a controversial one, as a Delaware turnover was followed by a foul call that many watching the CAA tournament semifinal between the Blue Hens and James Madison disagreed with (and a possible missed traveling violation before the foul). Senior guard Devon Moore hit two free throws with 3.4 seconds remaining to give…

    Mike Tobey

    Beating Maryland for the fifth consecutive time, which Virginia managed to do in overtime by the final score of 61-58, wasn’t going to do much for the resume of Tony Bennett’s team. But the result does guarantee the Cavaliers (21-10, 11-7) a first-round bye in next week’s ACC tournament, which could prove to be very…

    A 24-year old student at the Missouri Valley title game had a chance to win $50,000 before the tip. All he had to do was hit a layup, a free throw, a three and a half-court shot in 24 seconds. He hit the layup and the free throw … and then went straight to half-court,…

    Bob Cantu

    There was the feeling heading into the weekend that USC is a team capable of making a run at the Pac-12 tournament, due to their talent and the unpredictable nature of the Pac-12 this season. Their two losses against Washington and Washington State certainly didn’t back up that argument, but if a report from KREM…

    Given the success that Miami and Duke have enjoyed this season, it’s difficult to envision a scenario in which a player from another team will win ACC Player of the Year.
