    Given the fact that former Rice teammate Omar Oraby was declared eligible to play for USC a week ago, many felt it was only a matter of time before Oregon forward Arsalan Kazemi was cleared to play as well. According to multiple outlets the school was notified this afternoon that Kazemi, who was a second…

    When he suffered a broken leg in the spring, there were many who wondered if Jaron Blossomgame would be able to help out the Clemson Tigers this spring. And according to the program it seems as if the highest-rated member of their freshman class has decided that he’ll redshirt this season. While the Tigers certainly…

    Kevin Ollie

    For quite some time the basketball programs at the University of Connecticut have gone without a basketball-specific practice facility, something that’s become the norm for high-level programs in the facilities “arms race” era. The school’s been looking to change that and approved plans for a project that will ultimately cost $38 million, with $24 million…

    The saga that is UCLA’s quest to get prized freshman Shabazz Muhammad cleared by the NCAA is one that has dragged on for quite some time.

    While the first season of the Rick Ray era at Mississippi State was expected to be a tough one given the players who decided to leave the program at the end of last year, it’s difficult to think that anyone envisioned this kind of start for the Bulldogs.

    Northern Iowa Basketball

    Games of the Day 1. Fresno State 39, UC-Riverside 30: Yeah, no. This is called sarcasm. The Bulldogs outlasted UCR in one of the ugliest games we’ll see this season. The two teams shot 26.1% (23-88) from the floor, while managing to turn the ball over 31 times. The score was actually 32-27 with just…

  9. St. Louis loss caps of a tough week in the A-10

    Nov 15, 2012, 12:11 AM EDT

    Butler v Xavier

    The Atlantic 10 has had better weeks. It started with Butler losing to Xavier during Marathon Madness. Actually, ‘losing’ probably isn’t the correct word to use there. Smacked seems more appropriate given the 62-47 final and the fact that the Bulldogs simply did not look very good. There could be an explanation for that, however;…

    Indiana State v UCLA

    Kyle Anderson took a nasty fall in UCLA’s 80-79 overtime win against UC-Irvine on Tuesday night, tripping over a camera man as he chased a loose ball out of bounds. He returned to the game later on, but still went in for an MRI on Wednesday, which showed that he has a bone contusion in…

  13. This is why Kentucky attracts so many recruits: the Wildcat Lodge

    Nov 14, 2012, 8:42 PM EDT

    John Calipari

    Kentucky’s Wildcat Lodge is the dorm that the basketball players stay in. And, as you can probably imagine, it’s ridiculous, complete with a pool table, a personal chef, and sinks made for seven-footers. I’d imagine that Nerlens Noel’s feet don’t hang off the edge of his bed, either:

    State Farm Champions Classic - Duke v Kentucky

    ATLANTA – This wasn’t how the season was supposed to begin.
