    A little over a week ago a study completed by CNN took a look at the academic credentials of student-athletes entering college, focusing on their reading levels specifically. According to the research done by correspondent Sara Ganim, anywhere from seven to eighteen percent of basketball and football players at some Division I schools are reading…

    With the spike in the number of transfers in college basketball in recent years, many coaches and administrators openly asked if it were time to make some changes. With waivers granting players immediate eligibility at their new schools and graduate students having the ability to complete their career at a new school, many likened the…

    Jan 17, 2014, 9:30 AM EDT

    Marcus Smart

    GAME OF THE WEEKEND: No. 9 Oklahoma State at No. 15 Kansas, 4:00 p.m. This is going to be a doozy. Let’s start with the obvious: Oklahoma State and Kansas are the two best teams in the Big 12. And while the preseason luster of Marcus Smart vs. Andrew Wiggins (who, at the time, were…

    GAME OF THE NIGHT: UConn 83, No. 17 Memphis 73 Don’t be fooled by the final margin; this was an entertaining game that was tight until the Huskies made a few stops and knocked down their free throws in the final minute.

    powell

    With No. 21 Colorado receiving much of the attention heading into Thursday night’s game against No. 25 UCLA due to the loss of starting point guard Spencer Dinwiddie, the contest was likely to be more of a referendum on the Buffaloes than the Bruins. Steve Alford’s team took No. 1 Arizona down to the wire…

  9. Minnesota’s front line comes to the rescue against No. 11 Ohio State

    Jan 16, 2014, 11:53 PM EDT

    Minnesota v Michigan State

    It’s officially time to be concerned about No. 11 Ohio State. Their inability to consistently create offense is a problem, and the fact that they can get exposed by opponents with more powerful front lines certainly doesn’t help matters. Think about it like this: the Buckeyes got 22 points from leading scorer LaQuinton Ross and…

    boyle

    When it was announced on Monday that point guard Spencer Dinwiddie would be lost for the remainder of the season with a torn ACL, No. 21 Colorado had to figure out a way to account for the production lost as a result. The Buffaloes’ leader and most talented player, Dinwiddie was averaging 14.7 points and…

    At first glance Missouri’s SEC schedule looked to be tailor-made for a 3-0 start, with a home game against Georgia followed by road tilts at Auburn and Vanderbilt. But after losing to an emotional group of Bulldogs in the league opener and at Vanderbilt on Thursday night, Frank Haith’s team finds itself sitting at 1-2…

    bubu palo

    The story of guard Bubu Palo at Iowa State is a long-winding one, with Palo joining the program as a walk-on and eventually doing enough to earn a scholarship. But Palo played in just 17 games last season due to a suspension that came as a result of his being charged with second-degree sexual assault…

    As was the case last season, the Seton Hall Pirates have been unable to avoid the injury bug for much of the 2013-14 season. Patrik Auda, Fuquan Edwin and Aaron Geramipoor all missed time due to injury, and the same went for senior center Eugene Teague after he suffered a terrifying fall in the Pirates’…

    Jan 16, 2014, 4:53 PM EDT

    Virginia v Duke

    Rasheed Sulaimon’s sophomore season has not been what he thought it would be. It’s not what we all thought it would be, either. Duke’s talented shooting guard has had trouble this season adapting to being forced into being a role player, a guy that is the third or fourth option offensively to a couple of…

    Jabari Parker, Mike Tobey

    What in the world has happened to Jabari Parker? Three weeks ago, he was being hailed as the best offensive weapon in the history of college basketball. Ok, that may be overstating it just a bit, but there really wasn’t much that Parker wasn’t doing on the offensive end of the floor. Put a smaller…

    There was a report out yesterday that the NCAA would be deciding soon on whether or not to waive an obscure rule that would force teams in smaller leagues to forfeit games.

  20. Is Cal the second-best team in the Pac-12?

    Jan 16, 2014, 12:01 PM EDT

    Grant Gibbs, Jabari Bird

    We know Arizona sits at the top of the Pac-12 Power Rankings right now. That much is obvious. They’re the No. 1 team in the country, and the Pac-12 doesn’t currently have anyone else sitting in the top 20. That’s not a tough one to figure out. What is tough, however, is trying to determine…
