    Feb 15, 2013, 10:15 AM EDT

    CBE Hall Of Fame Classic

    Who proves themselves to be elite in the Atlantic 10 this weekend? If there was a conference that had a collective of bigger games this weekend, I’ve yet to see it. Three games, six teams, with conference title hopes play on Saturday. St. Joseph’s (14-9, 5-5) at La Salle (17-6, 7-3), Temple (16-8, 5-5) at UMass…

  2. Weekend preview: Gonzaga can’t figure out San Francisco on the road

    Feb 15, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    WCC Basketball Tournament - Semifinals San Francisco v Saint Mary's

    Who’s getting upset? No. 5 Gonzaga at San Francisco (Sat., 4:30 p.m. EST, ROOT): History is suggesting this one. Look at the past few years, and the Bulldogs have had an incredibly hard time traveling to War Memorial Gym. The last time they went there, they lost 66-65 last season. The time before that? A 96-91…

  3. Weekend preview: Ohio State/Wisconsin highlight, Duke/Maryland is sneaky good

    Feb 15, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Wisconsin v Ohio State

    Game of the weekend: No. 13 Ohio State at No. 20 Wisconsin (Sun., 1:00 p.m. EST, CBS): Another weekend, another huge battle in the Big Ten battle. These things are starting to ease into the place of NFL Sundays real quick. Wisconsin took a loss at Minnesota on Thursday night. That hurts, but a win…

    Friday’s schedule may consist of just 11 games but there are some solid contests to check out, most notably No. 15 Georgetown visiting Cincinnati. The Hoyas can move into first place in the Big East with a win, while a victory for the Bearcats would strengthen their NCAA tournament credentials. Two schools separated by ten…

    Colorado fans

    Game of the Night: Duquesne 84, Temple 83 Jim Ferry’s Dukes entered Thursday on an 11-game losing streak and 0-8 all-time at the Liacouras Center, but they pulled off the upset due to two Derrick Colter free throws with 2.9 seconds remaining. For Duquesne the win is a positive step in the first season of…

    After Solomon Hill hit a jumper with 1:28 remaining in the first half to pull No. 9 Arizona to within five of Colorado, the Wildcats went more than four minutes without a point. The Buffaloes took advantage, pushing their lead out to 15, giving Colorado the cushion needed to beat Arizona 71-58. Sean Miller’s team…

  7. Colorado will ultimately go as far as Spencer Dinwiddie takes them

    Feb 15, 2013, 12:18 AM EDT

    Spencer Dinwiddie, Angelo Chol, Mark Lyons, Nick Johnson

    During pregame warmups for tonight’s game between No. 9 Arizona and Colorado someone posted the score “Colorado 3, Arizona 0″ on the scoreboard. That obviously is in reference to the Sabatino Chen three-pointer that was waved off at the end of regulation in Arizona’s 92-83 overtime win in the first meeting between the two teams.…

    Idaho St Weber St Basketball

    Montana’s 24-game Big Sky regular season win streak came to a crashing halt on Thursday night as they fell at Weber State by the final score of 87-63. And the only aspect of this game that should surprise anyone is the margin of victory. Randy Rahe’s Wildcats controlled proceedings from the start, shooting 58.2% and…

  9. Aesthetics? Not in Minnesota’s win over No. 20 Wisconsin

    Feb 14, 2013, 10:16 PM EDT

    Andre Hollins

    Having lost six of their last eight games, Minnesota was in danger of falling out of the bottom half of the Big Ten standings with a loss to No. 20 Wisconsin. But two Joe Coleman free throws with 17.4 seconds left in regulation tied the game at 49, and from there the Golden Gophers would…

  10. Home loss reveals Temple’s need for more than Khalif Wyatt offensively

    Feb 14, 2013, 9:33 PM EDT

    Khalif Wyatt, Roosevelt Jones

    Jim Ferry’s Duquesne Dukes entered Thursday’s game at Temple having lost 11 straight games, so it looked to be a safe bet that the Owls would take care of business at the Liacouras Center. That wasn’t the case, as two Derrick Colter free throws with 2.9 seconds remaining gave Duquesne the 84-83 victory while handing…

    Shabazz Muhammad, Tyler Lewis

    The rosters for the 2013 McDonald’s s All-American Games were released on Thursday afternoon. To be honest, as most of the time, there were very few surprises. Five Kentucky recruits or signees made the team, a record for a single school. The scary part? Or, if you’re a #BBN fan, the fun part, all four…

    So recently, if you haven’t figured it out, hitting half-court shots at college basketball games has become a thing. It happened in Hinkle Field House. It happened at Seattle University. Notre Dame. And a few other spots. Go ahead and add Auburn to the list. This kid hit a half-court shot in the Golden Flake…

  15. Nonprofit group sues NCAA over rule barring of felons from coaching AAU teams

    Feb 14, 2013, 3:08 PM EDT


    In recent years the NCAA has attempted to take some steps in cleaning up grassroots basketball (at least on its end). Prohibiting college coaches from attending spring and summer events that aren’t sanctioned by the NCAA during open recruiting periods, and requiring participating teams to be registered with the NCAA in order to compete in…

    Game of the Night: No. 5 Gonzaga at Saint Mary’s (11:00 p.m.; ESPN2) With BYU’s recent struggles the WCC has the look of a two-bid league with the Bulldogs and Gaels being the teams headed to the Big Dance. A Saint Mary’s win would not only go a long way towards making sure that is…

    Much was made about Wednesday’s meeting between No. 6 Syracuse and Connecticut being the last one between the two schools for the foreseeable future with the Orange headed to the ACC at the end of this academic year. But in the aftermath of the Huskies’ 66-58 win the biggest story was neither the end of…

    Wednesday night marked the season debut for Texas sophomore point guard Myck Kabongo, who was suspended for 23 games by the NCAA for not being up front from the start in regards to how expenses for a weekend of workouts in Ohio were handled. But given the Longhorns’ lack of success this season (and the…
