    Harvard entered this weekend faced with tough games against Princeton and Penn, with the outcomes likely to shape the Ivy League race. One night after beating the Tigers in Cambridge, Tommy Amaker’s team made short work of the Quakers at Lavietes Pavilion. Laurent Rivard scored 22 points and Kyle Casey added 15 to go along…

    Justin Cobbs

    Justin Cobbs drove left off of a ball-screen, getting Arizona center Kaleb Tarczewski to switch onto him before hitting a step-back 15-footer with 0.9 seconds left on the clock to give the Bears a win they so-desperately needed over the previously-undefeated, No. 1 Wildcats, 60-58. Cobbs finished with 19 points and seven assists for the…

  3. Kent State beats Akron on Darren Goodson’s banked-in three (VIDEO)

    Kent State Athletics

    Conference play hasn’t been as enjoyable for Rob Senderoff’s Kent State Golden Flashes as they would have hoped, with Kent State entering Saturday’s game against rival Akron with a 2-5 record in MAC play. Akron, on the other hand, entered the game in sole possession of first place in the MAC East and looked to…

    Glenn Cosey capped off a come-from-behind win by banking in a three at the buzzer to beat SE Missouri State, 79-78. SEMO was up 63-54 with eight minutes left, but EKU responded with a 10-2 run to cut the lead to one. Cosey’s three came after Tyler Stone scored at the rim with 6.1 seconds…

    Screen grab via ESPN broadcast

    No. 2 Syracuse outlasted No. 17 Duke in overtime in what will go down as one of the best games we get a chance to see this season.  Duke fans may not agree, however, as the Blue Devils found themselves on the wrong end of a couple of close calls. The most notable was Rodney…

  6. Valiant in defeat, No. 17 Duke hurt by lack of interior options

    The hype for Saturday’s game between No. 17 Duke and No. 2 Syracuse was immense, and in situations such as this one it seems near impossible for the matchup to live up to the pre game chatter. But the Blue Devils and Orange lived up to the hype and then some, playing the most exciting…

  7. No. 2 Syracuse beats No. 17 Duke in the Game of the Year

    Feb 1, 2014, 8:40 PM EDT

    Duke v Syracuse

    “We’ve had a lot of games in here that have been great, but there’s never been a game as good as this one.” That’s what Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim told Shannon Spake after the No. 2 Orange knocked off No. 17 Duke, which is a strong statement but one that Boeheim could very well…

  8. Georges Niang’s career-high gives No. 16 Iowa State win vs. No. 23 Oklahoma

    Feb 1, 2014, 8:29 PM EDT

    Georges Niang

    Nothing exemplifies the way that Iowa State wants to play than the biggest shot of Saturday’s game. Up 73-70 with just under a minute left on the clock, sophomore forward Georges Niang caught a pass 23-feet away from the rim with 22 seconds left on the shot clock, and instead of pulling the ball out…

  9. Jerrelle Benimon leads Towson past Drexel (VIDEO)

    Feb 1, 2014, 8:04 PM EDT

    benimon

    It goes without saying that in order to beat the Towson Tigers the first order of business is to slow down forward Jerrelle Benimon. In Towson’s 80-68 win over Drexel on January 14 the preseason CAA Player of the Year was outstanding, accounting for 27 points, 13 rebounds and seven assists. Clearly Benimon was going…

  10. No. 6 Kansas receives reminder about defense in loss at No. 25 Texas

    Feb 1, 2014, 7:29 PM EDT

    self

    Even with their play through the first seven games of Big 12 play, it’s difficult to think that No. 6 Kansas was going to run through its 18-game conference slate without a blemish. So in that regard, their 81-69 loss at No. 25 Texas doesn’t mean that the sky’s falling or that the Jayhawks are…

  11. No. 25 Texas makes statement in win over No. 6 Kansas

    Feb 1, 2014, 6:44 PM EDT

    horns

    When it comes to discussing the surprising season that No. 25 Texas has enjoyed up to this point, the prevailing story is one of a team that made multiple additions by subtraction with talented players who had little desire to be a part of Rick Barnes’ program hitting the road. Is there truth in that?…

  12. Saint Louis survives George Mason in overtime (VIDEO)

    Feb 1, 2014, 6:29 PM EDT

    Rob Loe, Jalen Jenkins

    George Mason gave Saint Louis everything they could handle on Saturday afternoon, but the No. 19 Billikens were too much down the stretch. Rob Loe hit a three to tie the game at 68 with 20 seconds left to force overtime and then scored eight of the first ten points in the extra frame as…

  13. As Marcus Smart and Oklahoma State struggle in Big 12 play, is Smart still the leader we think he is?

    Feb 1, 2014, 5:55 PM EDT

    Marcus Smart

    Since Oklahoma State lost Michael Cobbins for the season with a torn ACL and began Big 12 play, sophomore guard Marcus Smart has struggled mightily to find his shot on offense. The Cowboys now stand 4-4 in the Big 12 after Saturday’s stunning 76-70 loss at home to Baylor and Smart once again shot poorly…

  14. Georgetown may have saved their season by beating No. 7 Michigan State

    Feb 1, 2014, 5:54 PM EDT

    D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera, Gary Harris

    Markel Starks scored 16 points and Mikael Hopkins chipped in with 10 as Georgetown picked up a win they desperately needed, knocking off No. 7 Michigan State, 64-60, at Madison Square Garden on Saturday. The Hoyas have been a mess this year. They entered the game having lost five straight games and six of their…

  15. No. 4 Wichita State ramps up defensive effort after slow start

    Feb 1, 2014, 5:36 PM EDT

    vanvleet

    For the fourth-ranked Wichita State Shockers, Saturday’s game against Evansville represented a stiffer test than some may have realized. Marty Simmons’ Purple Aces beat the Shockers twice last season, and despite the graduation of Colt Ryan (he scored 29 in the win at Wichita State) Evansville had another capable scoring guard in D.J. Balentine. Balentine…

  16. SMU blows out No. 22 Memphis in the second half

    Feb 1, 2014, 4:59 PM EDT

    players names

    The road is an interesting place in league play. On Wednesday, SMU suffered the kind of loss that could kill of any NCAA tournament hops when they went to South Florida and got dropped by the American bottom-feeder. The Mustangs returned home on Saturday, taking on No. 22 Memphis in a game that they needed…

  17. Baylor shocks No. 8 Oklahoma State on the road

    Feb 1, 2014, 4:41 PM EDT

    baylor oklahoma state

    There was no reason Baylor should have won at No. 8 Oklahoma State on Saturday afternoon. The Bears were losers of five straight games, had gone 1-6 in Big 12 play and were playing without starting point guard Kenny Chery. Heck, Baylor even had problems just getting to Stillwater. The team’s flight was re-directed to…

  18. Dayton snaps four-game losing streak with win over George Washington (VIDEO)

    Archie Miller’s Dayton Flyers, having lost their last four games, needed to knock off George Washington in the worst way on Saturday afternoon. During much of non-conference play the Flyers had the look of a team capable of factoring into the Atlantic 10 race, but things hadn’t worked out that way through their first six…

  19. Northwestern wins at Minnesota, is now fourth in the Big Ten

    Feb 1, 2014, 4:20 PM EDT

    Malik Smith, Alex Olah

    It’s February 1st, and after beating Minnesota 55-54 on the road on Saturday, Northwestern is currently sitting at fourth in the Big Ten. Let me repeat that. Northwestern is fourth in the Big Ten. They’re in front of Ohio State, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Purdue, Indiana and Illinois. They’ve won four of their last five games, a…

    North Dakota State v Notre Dame

    Notre Dame and Boston College squared off in a battle between two of the most disappointing teams in the country this season. And it turned into a thriller. Notre Dame forced overtime after Olivier Hanlan fouled Eric Atkins, who hit one-of-two free throws at the end of regulation. The two were squared off again at…
