  2. Is there a chance that the Maryland-Georgetown rivalry could restart?

    Feb 20, 2013, 1:42 PM EDT

    John Thompson III

    John Thompson III hopped on a podcast with ESPN’s Andy Katz and Seth Greenberg, and got asked plenty of questions about his Georgetown program, which just so happens to be the hottest team in the Big East right now. But the more interesting topics of conversation dealt with much more difficult issues that Otto Porter’s…

  3. Allen Crabbe’s parents comment on the Shove Heard ‘Round The World

    Feb 20, 2013, 12:42 PM EDT

    Allen Crabbe

    As you might expect, Allen Crabbe’s parents weren’t too thrilled when they saw their son’s head coach, Mike Montgomery, use a two-handed shove in an effort to snap Allen out of a funk early in the second half. While Crabbe eventually snapped out of it, his initial reaction was, simply, to snap. He was grabbed…

    Sad news today coming out of North Carolina as Josh Level, a 17 year old junior at New Gardens Friends School in Greensboro, NC, passed away on Tuesday night. He collapsed on the court during a game against Quality Education Academy and died at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center. R.I.P Josh Level. Man I’m sooo…

  5. VIDEO: Defensive miscues cost Virginia season-defining win

    Shane Larkin

    Losing on the road to the No. 2 team in the country can hardly be considered a bad loss. For anyone. If No. 1 Indiana went down to Coral Gables tomorrow and lost to No. 2 Miami, you would have a tough time convincing me that would be anything to be concerned about. So when…

    Utah State BYU

    Tuesday will be a day that Craig Cusick won’t soon forget. On Tuesday evening, BYU’s senior guard was the hero, hitting the game-winning shot as the Cougars knocked off in-state rival Utah State 70-68 in front of a packed Marriott Center. It’s the kind of play every kid dreams of growing up: thousands of people…

    Mark Turgeon

    Oh, Maryland. Barely 72 hours after thrusting themselves into the midst of the bubble conversation with a win over then-No. 2 Duke at the Comcast Center on Saturday, the Terps made the trip up to Boston College to take on the Eagles in Conte Forum. And, well, things didn’t quite go as planned. The Terps…

    You may have missed it because the news broke with five minutes left in Indiana’s win at Michigan State last night, but the NCAA has started handing out the Notice of Allegations to the involved parties stemming from the accusations by made Nevin Shapiro.

    Indiana Michigan State

    Game of the Day: No. 1 Indiana 72. No. 4 Michigan State 68 Indiana made a statement Tuesday night with a win over a quality Michigan State team. The Hoosiers worked to break down the Spartans’ defense and, with another Player of the Year-type performance from Victor Oladipo, held their ground in the Big Ten…

    I like stats as much as anyone. I love diving into box scores and breaking down who did what and why is had a certain effect on the outcome of a game and whether or night it’s a sign of a bigger trend. I spend more time on Kenpom.com than I do on any other…

  12. Saint Louis takes first in A-10 with win over No. 24 VCU

    Feb 20, 2013, 12:15 AM EDT

    Jordair Jett

    Virginia Commonwealth and Butler have taken the biggest share of the national spotlight of teams in the Atlantic 10 this season. Newcomers to the league having so much success and finding their way in the national polls will do that. But with first place in the conference (at least for the time being) on the…

  13. Florida’s poor track record in close games is worrisome

    Feb 19, 2013, 11:45 PM EDT

    Laurence Bowers, Erik Murphy

    With Missouri leading 61-60 and less than 20 seconds left on the clock, No. 5 Florida had the ball with a chance to pick up a win over the second-best team in the SEC on the road. The question that rippled through twitter at that exact moment: “Who does Florida give the ball to here?”…

  14. Shane Larkin’s poise helps No. 2 Miami outlast Virginia, remain undefeated in ACC

    Feb 19, 2013, 11:26 PM EDT

    Shane Larkin

    It was one sequence that separated No. 2 Miami from Virginia on Tuesday night. With under 10 seconds remaining and the game tied at 50, Miami sophomore guard Shane Larkin was trapped in a double team on the right win, but used his eyes to draw a defender to the top of the key, only…

  15. Keith Appling’s struggles hurt No. 4 Michigan State in loss to No. 1 Indiana

    Feb 19, 2013, 9:57 PM EDT

    Keith Appling

    There is a reason Keith Appling is a captain on this Michigan State basketball team. In a 72-68 loss to No. 1 Indiana Tuesday night, though, Appling struggled from the floor for the third straight game, raising legitimate questions about what sort of road the junior guard and his Spartan teammates are paving on their…

  16. Victor Oladipo’s poetic milestone gives Indiana the Big Ten lead

    Feb 19, 2013, 9:56 PM EDT

    130219-oladipo.standard

    First, it was Duke’s rise to No. 1 after their terrific run through the non-conference schedule. Then, it was the cavalcade of suitors for the top spot — Louisville, Duke again, Kansas, even Florida tossed themselves in the mix — that took turns using a few first-place votes as motivation for a losing streak. Next…

    Michigan State guard Travis Trice has been cleared to play Tuesday against No. 1 Indiana, but it is unclear whether he will see time on the floor against the Hoosiers, Michigan State coach Tom Izzo announced this evening. “We did get clearance to use him,” Tom Izzo said on his pre-game show on the Spartan…

    The Syracuse athletic department announced Tuesday that tickets are sold out for Saturday’s men’s basketball game against Georgetown and that a record crowd of 35,012 people are expected to be in attendance at the Carrier Dome.

  20. Andy Kennedy doesn’t seem concerned about Marshall Henderson’s antics

    Feb 19, 2013, 2:50 PM EDT

    Andy Kennedy, Marshall Henderson, Terry Brutus

    Andy Kennedy is a smart man. He knows what Marshall Henderson does for his program. He knows that the hyperactive sharpshooter not only helps him win basketball games — that’ll happen when you average 21.3 points and have a penchant for making big plays and big shots down the stretch — and has gotten him…
