    Game of the Day: James Madison 72, Delaware 71  The Blue Hens entered Sunday’s game against JMU with a chance to pull within a game of first-place Northeastern (in the loss column) in the CAA, but a lob from Devon Moore to Andre Nation with less than a second remaining gave James Madison the win…

    It all began with a kick. With 41.2 seconds remaining in regulation Illinois State forward Jackie Carmichael grabbed a rebound with the Redbirds leading by seven, 67-60. But in his aggressive corralling of the basketball his foot struck Wichita State’s Tekele Cotton in the face. After reviewing the play the officials would hit Carmichael with…

  4. No. 3 Miami survives despite Clemson neutralizing Shane Larkin

    Kenny Kadji, Milton Jennings

    Offensively the game between No. 3 Miami and Clemson was not one that the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame will request a recording of anytime soon. But all that matters is the result, and with the 45-43 victory the Hurricanes move to 12-0 in ACC play (21-3 overall). Kenny Kadji hit a three-pointer with…

    Larry Eustachy

    Throughout the season we’ve seen college basketball teams put together some interesting dance steps, whether it’s the new phenomenon that is the “Harlem Shake” or celebrating a big win in the locker room to the sounds of Ke$ha. Colorado State head coach Larry Eustachy decided to show off some of his dance moves late in…

    “You are what your record says you are.” – Bill Parcells While the words of one of the football’s greatest coaches are true, they can sometimes mask the steps a struggling programs has taken towards at the very least being more competitive. That’s the case with Larry Krystkowiak’s Utah Utes, who lost 68-64 to No.…

    Minnesota Iowa Basketball

    So much for building on their win Wednesday night over No. 20 Wisconsin. With 12:57 remaining in the first half Minnesota (18-8, 6-7 Big Ten) led Iowa 21-5 after three free throws from Austin Hollins and looked to be well on their way to picking up a decisive road victory. Obviously that didn’t happen, as…

    Feb 17, 2013, 4:22 PM EDT

    Iowa Minnesota

    In the nation’s toughest conference, Iowa has lost a handful of disappointing games in the final minutes, games that, had they been wins, would have made for an impressive league record. That includes being within one point in the final six minutes against No. 1 Indiana. It includes a strong first half against No. 4…

  9. No. 23 Wisconsin takes advantage of ice-cold shooting from No. 13 Ohio State in win

    Feb 17, 2013, 3:09 PM EDT

    Wisconsin

    There are two key ways to beat Ohio State: 1) Force Deshaun Thomas to be the lone offensive option and dare some other Buckeye to beat you. 2) Keep up the offensive pressure and make shots, which stops Ohio State from turning defense into offense. Happen to do both in the same game and the…

    Feb 17, 2013, 12:01 PM EDT

    Marshall Henderson

    Another short chapter in the sensational story of Marshall Henderson was written Saturday night and all it took was one quote. Literally. After Henderson scored 25 points in an 84-74 overtime win over Georgia Saturday night, he had just one line for the media in attendance. The scene was short and it was simple. Nick…

    john-calipari

    The game started with John Calipari trying to make a statement, as Jarrod Polson started at the point over Ryan Harrow. But that didn’t make much of a difference for the Wildcats, as Kentucky found themselves down 33-12 just 11 minutes into the first half en route to an embarrassing, 88-58 loss at Tennessee on…

    COLLEGE PARK, Md. – Should we really be too concerned with the Duke Blue Devils after their 83-81 loss to Maryland on Saturday night? Well, first and foremost, you should never lose a basketball game when your opposition turns the ball over 26 times. So yes, we should be concerned that the No. 2 team…

    San Diego St UNLV Basketball

    This was the kind of game we’ve come to expect from the Mountain West – multiple lead changes, tough players on both sides and a close finish. There are no easy outs in this league. It’s a shame they can’t all go to the Big Dance. San Diego State took a 40-34 lead into the…

    Every game matters in the Ivy. If you’re Harvard and Princeton, vying for the league lead in mid-February, that goes double. The two teams entered this game with the Ivy lead on the line, so Harvard made some serious hay with the win. The Crimson moved to 7-1, leaving the Tigers 1.5 games back at…
