  1. Ten of the top 20 teams in the country have lost by more than 17 points?

    Feb 19, 2013, 1:09 PM EDT

    Miami Duke

    Perhaps more than any season in recent memory, the top teams in the country have taken so brutal poundings this season. The most obvious victim is Duke, who got manhandled by Miami back in January. That’s the same Miami who is currently sitting at No. 2 in the country despite the 19 point whipping they…

  3. Brandon Paul: “The coaches never gave up on us” this year

    Feb 19, 2013, 11:01 AM EDT

    Brandon Paul, Trevor Mbakwe

    The turnaround Illinois has made over the course of the last two weeks is one of the more shocking developments in a season where nothing should come as a surprise. There’s a reason that I’ve dubbed this “The Year of WTF?!?” The Illini won their first 12 games of the season — including big wins…

  4. Indiana vs. Michigan State: B1G’s latest Game of the Century

    Feb 19, 2013, 10:13 AM EDT

    Michigan State v Indiana

    Based on the way that this year’s schedule has played put, the Big Ten Game of the Century has become a weekly occurrence. First, it was Indiana hosting Michigan State. Then, it was Indiana hosting Michigan. Then Michigan visited East Lansing. And on Tuesday night, No. 1 Indiana will make their return visit to East…

    Feb 19, 2013, 9:16 AM EDT

    California v Arizona

    If you missed, the biggest talking point on Sunday night and into Monday morning in college hoops was the shove heard ’round the world. You can find the video here. In what appears to be an effort to snap Allen Crabbe out of a funk, Mike Montgomery gave him a two-handed push as he came…

    Keith Appling

    Tom Izzo and the Michigan State Spartans are at it again.  The Spartans have lost just once in 2013 (at Indiana), and they play the Hoosiers tonight in a heavy-weight tilt in East Lansing.  IU and MSU are tied at the top of a strong Big Ten conference.  All this considered, Michigan State joins IU,…

  8. Bubble Banter: Illinois, California the biggest movers

    Feb 19, 2013, 7:15 AM EDT

    California v Arizona

    It’s been a big two weeks for Illinois.  The Illini have won four straight, including victories over Indiana and Minnesota.  When combined with wins over Gonzaga, Butler, and Ohio State, it’s hard to imagine the Illini as a bubble team at this point in time.  Taking care of winnable games down the stretch should be…

    Feb 19, 2013, 12:00 AM EDT

    J.J. Moore, Jack Cooley, Eric Atkins, Dante Taylor

    It was a relatively light night on the action front. A few Top 25 teams in action, two playing each other in the Big East, and some mid-major games that, while looking good on paper, were missing a few things. It’s Late Night Snacks. Game of the Night No. 25 Notre Dame 51, No. 20…

  10. VIDEO: Drexel fends off Hofstra, no buzzer-beater needed this time

    Feb 18, 2013, 11:30 PM EDT

    Damion Lee, Dee Davis

    The last time that Drexel and Hostra played, it took a Frantz Massenet prayer to give the Dragons the win. This time around, it was a bit different, but the result was the same. Massenet still had a big game, dropping in 16 points as Drexel held off the Pride 63-56 at home. Damion Lee…

    Southern Illinois Wichita St Basketball

    The wild ending to the Wichita State/Illinois State game on Sunday night just got a bit wilder, even after the buzzer. In a release, the Missouri Valley Conference reprimanded the three-man officiating team of David Hall, Gerry Pollard and Paul Janssen for incorrectly awarding two late technical foul shots to the wrong player in the Shockers…

  12. Notre Dame beats Pitt, but should they be worried?

    Feb 18, 2013, 10:05 PM EDT

    James Robinson, Jerian Grant

    Notre Dame’s been a weird team to follow since their five-overtime epic with Louisville. They’ve gone 2-1, with wins over DePaul and now, a solid, scrappy victory at no. 20 Pittsburgh. But looking at the numbers Fighting Irish fans might want to keep an eye out. The 38.3-percent shooting is indicative of their past two…

  13. Mississippi State suspends Roquez Johnson indefinitely

    Roquez Johnson, Mike Rosario

    I’m not sure how much worse Rick Ray’s first season in Starkville can get. After a mountain of injuries and suspensions for his team, Mississippi State can add another to it with the indefinite suspension of forward Roquez Johnson, according to The Associated Press. Johnson was suspended for an unspecified violation of team rules. Johnson…

    Feb 18, 2013, 5:50 PM EDT

    Nick Faust, Seth Allen, Logan Aronhalt, Seth Curry

    Flash mobs and the newly-minted king of YouTube memes, the ‘Harlem Shake’ videos, have already become ingrained in our memories, whether we like them or not, in recent years and weeks. As a result, some have already said these two entities have become out-dated. Even the Harlem Shake videos, which have been around for, what,…

  15. VIDEO: Andre Nation’s lob dunk with 00.2 left beats Delaware

    Feb 18, 2013, 5:15 PM EDT

    William Mary James Madison Basketball

    The inbounds lob dunk is always a great play. The precise timing and precision passing are something that’s fun to watch, and are tough to get down to a science. It’s even cooler when it wins a game in the final seconds. James Madison’s Andre Nation did just that Sunday night. Putting down a lob…

  16. The NCAA ‘did not violate a specific bylaw’ in their investigation into Miami?

    Feb 18, 2013, 4:14 PM EDT

    Mark Emmert

    You’re going to read a lot of words about the NCAA’s report on an external investigation into how they handled their own investigation into Miami and the accusations made by former booster and Ponzi-schemer Nevin Shapiro, but there is really only one line that you need to pay attention to: The external review found that…

    Jamie Dixon

    Game of the Day: No. 25 Notre Dame at No. 20 Pittsburgh (7:00 p.m. ET, ESPN) I’m sure that Jamie Dixon is ready for this run to end for the Panthers. The Fighting Irish will be the fifth ranked team Pitt has faced in the last six games. They’ve gone 3-2 in that span, holding…

    Michigan v Indiana

    Victor Oladipo left Saturday’s game with Purdue with a left ankle injury, calling into question his availability for Tuesday night’s classic against Michigan State. But according to Indiana head coach Tom Crean, Oladipo should be ready to go. “We practiced some yesterday, and he went through that,” Crean said. “I don’t anticipate he won’t be…

    Tom Crean

    For the third straight week, Indiana holds on to the No. 1 spot in the AP poll. The Hoosiers, who beat Nebraska and Purdue this week, received 43 of the 65 first place votes. Miami, who needed a three from Kenny Kadji with 17 seconds left to beat Clemson on Sunday, remained in the No.…
