    Tyreek Duren, Rob Brandenderg

    Game of the Night La Salle 69, No. 19 VCU 61: Want to make someone feel unwelcome in the A-10? Let them play La Salle. The Explorers knocked off No. 9 Butler in Philly a few days ago, and then traveled to Richmond and laid the hurt on No. 19 VCU as well. John Giannini…

  3. Lorenzo Brown shows UNC what they’re missing in 91-83 win

    Jan 26, 2013, 10:09 PM EDT

    North Carolina v North Carolina State

    UNC’s Marcus Paige is no Lorenzo Brown. He’s also no Kendall Marshall, the NBA draft pick who made passing an art form during his time in Chapel Hill. Then again, neither is he Larry Drew II, Marshall’s predecessor, who mis-handled the UNC offense and sulked away to join UCLA when he was benched. Paige is…

  4. Rotnei Clarke scores 24 to help beat Temple in first game back from neck injury

    Jan 26, 2013, 8:38 PM EDT

    Rotnei Clarke

    We all cringed when Rotnei Clarke went down against Dayton in just his second A-10 game since transferring to Butler from Arkansas. The electrifying shooter essentially speared the basket support and was lucky to come away with a minor neck injury. Butler did pretty well while Clarke rested his vertebrae, beating Richmond and then edging…

  5. VIDEO: No. 15 New Mexico loses their first Mountain West game to SDSU

    New Mexico San Diego St Basketball

    No. 15 New Mexico entered Saturday’s at San Diego State as the only undefeated team remaining in the Mountain West. 34 points later, the Lobos left with a 55-34 loss to the Aztecs in a game that should give you a sense of just how tough that conference is going to be this year. New Mexico…

  6. VIDEO: Harvard needs OT to sweep Ivy foe Dartmouth

    Jan 26, 2013, 7:57 PM EDT

    Siyani Chambers, Olivier Hanlan

    The Ivy League is so different from the rest of DI basketball. There’s the relatively low status of athletes on an Ivy campus, the Friday/Saturday double headers and the refusal to stage a post-season tournament. Then there are artifacts like today’s game between Harvard and Dartmouth. Right now, the Crimson are 2-0 atop the league…

  7. UCLA gets Bachynski’d in 78-60 road loss at Arizona State

    Jan 26, 2013, 7:35 PM EDT

    Tony Parker, Jordan Bachynski

    UCLA has been on one heck of a roller-coaster ride this season. Fans were preparing to run Ben Howland out of town on a rail after a November home loss to Cal Poly, and another round of midseason player defections. Then came a ten-game win streak and solid play from freshmen Kyle Anderson and Shabazz…

  8. No. 12 Minnesota falls at Wisconsin, 45-44

    Jan 26, 2013, 7:21 PM EDT

    Maverick Ahanmisi, Andre Hollins, Trevor Mbakwe

    Wisconsin stayed a game out of first place in the Big Ten standings on Saturday afternoon with a 45-44 win over No. 12 Minnesota that featured one of the wackier endings that we’ve seen this season. Traevon Jackson hit jumper on back-to-back possessions in the final minute to put the Badgers up 45-43, the second…

  9. Clyburn leads Cyclones past No. 11 Kansas State

    Will Clyburn, Tyrus McGee, Chris Babb

    I don’t know if Bruce Weber has any ruby slippers (and if so, I’m not judging) but if he does, it’s time to click them together and chant “There’s no place like home, there’s no place like home.” That’s how Dorothy got back to Kansas, and that’s where Weber would no doubt like to be…

  10. Late Afternoon Snacks: Stormy seas in the Big East

    Jan 26, 2013, 5:55 PM EDT

    JayVaughn Pinkston

    Game of the Day Villanova 75, No. 3 Syracuse 71 (OT): This is why I don’t think Villanova students should have stormed the floor when they beat Louisville earlier this week, and why they shouldn’t have today, either. It implies they didn’t think their team was good enough to compete against top teams in the…

  11. Louisville benches Russ Smith, but offensive issues persist in third straight loss

    Jan 26, 2013, 5:48 PM EDT

    University of Louisville Russ Smith  is defended by Georgetown University's Porter, Jr.  and  Lubick during the first half of their NCAA basketball game in Washington

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – When discussing No. 5 Louisville, the first thing that is going to come up is always their defense. More specifically, it is the pressure that the Cardinals are able to apply. With a pair of lightening quick ballhawks manning the back court in Peyton Siva and Russ Smith, the Cardinals can make…

  12. Loose bat at Bradley Center delays Marquette-Providence (GIF)

    This is one of those special days in college basketball. What we might have missed out on with marquee Top 25 matchups, we can make up for with bizarre on-court events. Take, for example, this scene at the Bradley Center in Milwaukee, where a loose bat delayed play because it caused panic every time it…

  13. Baylor’s Brittney Griner breaks women’s all-time blocks record

    Jan 26, 2013, 3:29 PM EDT

    Brittney Griner

    Baylor senior center Brittney Griner has eclipsed the all-time record for career blocks in women’s basketball, recording her 664th block in a blowout win by the No. 1 Lady Bears over visiting Oklahoma. The record-breaking block came with 10:25 to play when Griner swatted away a shot from Oklahoma junior Aaryn Ellenberg. Griner finished with eight blocks on the…

    Aaron Bowen, Chane Behanan

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – Aaron Bowen entered Saturday’s game with No. 5 Louisville having played a grand total of 158 minutes in his career as a Georgetown Hoya. It’s Bowen’s third-year in the program. He’s not exactly the first guy on an opponent’s scouting report. The only reason he’s getting consistent playing time right now is…

  15. Ryan Arcidiacono’s heroics help Villanova beat No. 3 Syracuse in overtime thriller

    Ryan Arcidiacono Cuse

    Is this really the same Villanova team that lost to Columbia by 18 points on Nov. 20? Guard James Bell hit two key three-pointers in overtime to lead unranked Villanova to a 75-71 win over No. 3 Syracuse at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Penn., on Sunday. The win is Villanova’s second over a Top…
