    Game of the Night: Harvard at Princeton (7:00 p.m. on ESPNU)  Not much doubt as to which game is the best on Friday’s eight-game slate, and with a win at Jadwin Gym the Crimson would take a two-game lead in the loss column. In their 69-57 win on February 16 Harvard shot 47.9% from the…

    THE TOP SEEDS Michigan: The Wolverines lost on Wednesday in one of the most embarrassing losses that you’ll see this season. They were beaten by previously-winless-in-the-Big-Ten Penn State while giving up 84 points. For a team that had recently loss three of their last four games, that’s bad. But the Wolverines still have a shot…

    It’s March 1st. “Madness Season” is officially here.

    Drexel Old Dominion Basketball

    The season hasn’t gone as the Drexel Dragons would have hoped for, as key injuries for a team that didn’t have the deepest rotation to begin with erased their hopes of repeating as CAA regular season champions. But in a league like the CAA a tough season can be turned around in the conference tournament,…

    Duke v Virginia

    Sometimes, over-analyzation isn’t necessary. Sometimes, a loss is just a loss, and that’s the end of it. Sometimes, looking for a deeper meaning won’t get you anywhere. And that’s exactly the case with Duke tonight, after the No. 3 Blue Devils lost to Virginia 73-68 in Charlottesville on Thursday night. The Cavaliers had their backs…

    Duke v Virginia

    THURSDAY’S BUBBLE WINNERS Virginia: Thanks to an RPI that’s weighed down by six sub-100 losses — and one sub-300 loss to Old Dominion — Virginia still isn’t a lock for the NCAA tournament after they knocked off No. 3 Duke on Thursday night. But Virginia has three very winnable games left — at BC, at…

    Riding a six-game conference winning streak, the Tennessee Volunteers find themselves in the thick of the at-large conversation.  Since losing at home to Georgia in early February, the Vols have won three league road games and beaten Kentucky and Florida in Knoxville.  And while one could argue (correctly) that the SEC isn’t particularly strong or deep, Tennessee…

    In the eyes of many this season is essentially the “last hurrah” for the Big East Conference, as television dollars brought about by the importance of college football and the goal of non-FBS schools to control their own destiny has led to a permanent shredding of the fabric that made the conference what it once…
