  1. Report: USC players involved in altercation Saturday night in Spokane

    Mar 10, 2013, 8:28 PM EDT

    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…

    Indiana v Michigan

    Indiana entered Sunday’s game at Michigan with the No. 1 seed in the Big Ten tournament sewn up and the nets from their regular season title already cut down. It’s true that they were playing for a chance to win the outright Big Ten title, but whether or not the Hoosiers actually won on Sunday…

    Mar 10, 2013, 6:48 PM EDT

    Indiana v Michigan

    In the final 38 seconds of their game against No. 2 Indiana, Michigan missed the front end of two one-and-ones. Missed free throws by Tim Hardaway Jr. and Trey Burke set the stage for a Hoosier comeback, with Cody Zeller scoring the last of Indiana’s six consecutive points with a layup with 13 seconds remaining…

  5. Erick Green: ACC Player of the Year candidate?

    Mar 10, 2013, 5:01 PM EDT

    Virginia Tech v Duke

    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. Shane Larkin’s been the leader for a veteran Hurricane squad that won the program’s first ACC title, and Duke big man Mason Plumlee was…

    Traevon Jackson

    Wisconsin will have to sit and wait while a possible four-way tie takes place atop the Big Ten, but it pulled some dramatics of its own Sunday. Penn State, which has played competitively of late under coach Pat Chambers, already has an upset win over Michigan under its belt. Wisconsin’s Traevon Jackson would not let…

  8. Temple in good NCAA tournament position after win over No. 21 VCU

    Mar 10, 2013, 2:53 PM EDT

    Khalif Wyatt

    Early on, it looked like VCU’s patented “Havoc” defense would dominate Saturday against Temple. The Rams ripped off an 18-0 run to take a commanding 21-12 lead just 10 minutes into the game. That lead would grow to as many as 16 points, a combination of rushed Temple shots and Owl turnovers, before something clicked.…

    Brad Waldow

    It’s March. Things get a little rough in college basketball in March. We also know that not everyone is a dentist, or even claims to be. Saturday night, Saint Mary’s coach Randy Bennett made it clear to his sophomore forward that he had no intentions of entering the field of dentistry, kindly pointing Waldow down…

    Game of the Day: No. 2 Indiana vs. No. 7 Michigan (4:00 p.m. ET, CBS) Indiana has already locked up at least a share of the Big Ten title by (oddly enough) losing to Ohio State this week, so it will be Michigan who is clawing for a piece of the pie Sunday. If Michigan…

    Duke University's Curry reacts as University of North Carolina's Bullock looks on during NCAA basketball game in Chapel Hill

    Remember back when a Duke-North Carolina game meant someone – maybe everyone – was going home bloody? Ah, the good old days. This year, the Blue Devils beat the Tar Heels easily, trotting up and down the floor and barely seeming to break a sweat in a 69-53 rout. The perils of small-ball, one supposes.…

    It was a good day to be at the Horizon League tournament. After Wright State did this to Detroit in the first semifinal, Ryan Broekhoff did this: Bryce Drew, the man responsible for the most famous moment in the history of Valparaiso basketball, is currently the head coach of the Crusaders.
