  1. Don’t dismiss Virginia’s NCAA tournament hopes just yet

    Feb 10, 2013, 4:37 PM EDT

    Joe Harris, Justin Anderson

    One week after suffering a bad loss at Georgia Tech, Virginia could not afford to lose at Maryland if they were to keep alive their hopes of returning to the NCAA tournament. And thanks to their shooting from beyond the arc the Cavaliers picked up the result they needed, shooting 11-of-19 from three in an…

  2. Ohio State will struggle if it can’t support Deshaun Thomas

    Feb 10, 2013, 4:12 PM EDT

    Deshaun Thomas

    You can’t fault Deshaun Thomas Sunday. The 6-7 junior scored 26 points, including going 8-of-9 from the free throw line in Ohio State’s 81-68 loss to No. 1 Indiana. The cause for concern, though, is the point distribution. Thomas will get his points, as those who lead a major conference in scoring will, but it…

  3. Lorenzo Brown’s return and a Scott Wood three-pointer stop N.C. State freefall

    Feb 10, 2013, 3:39 PM EDT

    North Carolina State v Duke

    Entering Sunday’s game at Clemson having lost five of their last seven games, it’s a safe assumption that ACC preseason favorite N.C. State won’t win the conference’s regular season title. Of greater concern was whether or not the Wolfpack would be able to snap out of their funk, and for much of the afternoon it…

  4. Victor Oladipo’s importance shows as No. 1 Indiana rolls over No. 10 Ohio State

    Feb 10, 2013, 3:19 PM EDT

    Victor Oladipo

    It was a turnover that ultimately sank No. 1 Indiana on Thursday in a last-second loss to Illinois on the road. Victor Oladipo lost control of the ball on Indiana’s final possession and, despite blocking a breakaway layup to preserve the game for the moment, Tyler Griffey’s layup at the buzzer off an in-bounds pass…

  5. Steve Lavin will not coach St. John’s vs. Syracuse after death of father

    Feb 10, 2013, 1:46 PM EDT

    Steve Lavin

    St. John’s head coach Steve Lavin will not be with his team when the Red Storm take on Syracuse after the passing of his father, Cap, the school announced Sunday afternoon. Cap Lavin is a member of the University of San Francisco Hall of Fame and played guard for the Dons in the early 1950s.…

  6. James Southerland reportedly likely to play Sunday vs. St. John’s after eligibility issue

    Feb 10, 2013, 12:42 PM EDT

    James Southerland

    After missing six games due to an eligibility issue, Syracuse senior James Southerland will be available to play Sunday vs. St. John’s, the Post Standard is reporting. The report was widely circulated, but has since been taken down. Roger Rubin of the New York Daily News has also cited sources and reported that Southerland is…

  7. Snowstorm delays Bryant-Sacred Heart game again

    Feb 10, 2013, 11:51 AM EDT

    Snow Connecticut

    Blizzard conditions in the Northeast have dumped as much as three feet of snow in some areas and college basketball is not immune to the damage. The Bryant-Sacred Heart in Smithfield, R.I., an area that saw between 20 and 30 inches of snow over the course of the weekend, has been postponed for the third…

  8. Garrick Sherman emerges for 1st time in Big East play to lead Notre Dame in 5 OTs

    Feb 10, 2013, 10:43 AM EDT

    Garrick Sherman

    In the ten Big East games prior to No. 25 Notre Dame’s five-overtime thriller against No. 11 Louisville, Garrick Sherman had only appeared in six and averaged two points in just over 10 minutes per game. Saturday night, though, he was just what the Irish needed. His 17 points came all in the the second…

  9. Pregame Shootaround 2.10.13: Deshaun Thomas-Victor Oladipo matchup is one to watch

    Feb 10, 2013, 9:33 AM EDT

    Deshaun Thomas dunk

    Game of the Day: No. 1 Indiana vs. No. 10 Ohio State (1:00 p.m. ET, CBS) Fresh off a disappointing loss to Illinois on a buzzer-beating layup, the road gets no easier for No. 1 Indiana. But that’s what makes the Big Ten the Big Ten, right? Sunday the Hoosiers meet an Ohio State team…

  10. Boxscore Breakdown: Five OT’s with Notre Dame and Louisville

    Feb 10, 2013, 2:42 AM EDT

    Jerian Grant,Wayne Blackshear

    There’s nothing more entertaining that a weird box score, and no box score is weirder than one that comes from a five overtime game. Let’s hit it, shall we?: – Notre Dame and Louisville played 65 minutes worth of basketball. Six players logged at least 50 minutes. Eric Atkins led the way with 60 minutes…

  11. Late Night Snacks: Pluck of the Irish

    Pat Connaughton,Russ Smith

    Game of the Night No. 25 Notre Dame 104, N0. 11 Louisville 101: Of the 205 points scored in this game, 85 came in extra time. Louisville lost four players to fouls, and Notre Dame lost three. The night’s Iron Man award goes to Eric Atkins, who played 60 minutes, scored 14 points and somehow…

  12. Creighton goes cold, loses to Illinois State at home

    Feb 10, 2013, 2:10 AM EDT

    Tyler Brown

    Is it time to start getting worried about Creighton yet? The No. 16 Bluejays lost their second game in a row on Saturday night, dropping a league game to Illinois State 75-72. It was their fourth loss in the last seven games. But unlike the other three, this didn’t come on the road. Creighton lost…

  13. Fullerton Titans honor fallen coach in emotional home game

    Feb 10, 2013, 2:00 AM EDT

    A memorial for Monica Quan at Titan Gym (via @AbbeyMastracco) h/t Yahoo's The Dagger.

    Odds are, nobody at Cal State Fullerton was quite ready to get back to playing basketball yet. Women’s basketball assistant coach Monica Quan and her fiance were murdered just six days prior to Saturday’s home game against UC-Riverside, and the feelings in the building were still very raw. The game could likely have been canceled.…

  14. Is UNLV’s win the result of phasing out Mike Moser?

    Feb 10, 2013, 1:25 AM EDT

    Wyoming v UNLV

    UNLV isn’t ready to throw in the towel on their Mountain West title dreams just yet. After losing back-to-back road games to Boise State and Fresno State, the Runnin’ Rebels knocked off No. 15 New Mexico at the Thomas & Mack Center on Saturday night, 64-55. That final score doesn’t actually do UNLV’s dominance justice.…

  15. Five OTs and 205 points later, No. 25 Notre Dame defeats No. 11 Louisville

    Feb 10, 2013, 1:03 AM EDT

    Jerian Grant,Wayne Blackshear

    Thelonious Monk wrote a tune called “Ugly Beauty”. You’d have to watch a Louisville-Notre Dame game go to five overtimes to understand the concept. The fact that Notre Dame won this one, 104-101, is absolutely stunning, and therein lies the tale. The very long tale that I’m not going to retell. You had to be…

  16. Michigan State moves into sole possession of 1st in the B1G race

    Feb 9, 2013, 9:36 PM EDT

    A.J. Hammons, Derrick Nix

    We did it again. We forgot about Tom Izzo and Michigan State. The consensus this season has been that the Big Ten is a race that’s going to come down to Indiana and Michigan. But here we are a week into February and it’s the Spartans that are sitting all alone in first place after…

  17. No. 23 Pitt keeps Big East race interesting with takedown of No. 17 Cincy

    Feb 9, 2013, 9:11 PM EDT

    Tray Woodall, Sean Kilpatrick

    Ah, Big East, how we will miss ye. The No. 23 Pitt Panthers reminded us again how great a league game can be, battling back and forth with No. 17 Cincinnati for 33 minutes before grabbing hold of the game with both hands down the stretch. The Panthers are making a statement in a stacked…

  18. LeBron, Dwyane Wade watch Miami showboat in UNC win. Uncalled for?

    Feb 9, 2013, 8:45 PM EDT

    North Carolina Miami Basketball

    Today’s 87-61 win over North Carolina has to be considered the high point for the Miami basketball program. Ever. Let’s start with the fact that they currently hold a two game lead over Duke in the ACC. That’s impressive, as is the fact that they become the first team since 1953 to beat both Duke…

  19. No. 13 K-State beats Cyclones, seizes control of Big 12 race

    Feb 9, 2013, 8:19 PM EDT

    Shane Southwell, Angel Rodriguez, Rodney McGruder

    It’s been a great hoops season in the state of Kansas, with all three of the state’s DI teams battling for league titles and national rankings. But as of right now, there can be no debate. The best team in the Sunflower State is the Kansas State Wildcats. K-State dumped a tough, rangy Iowa State…

  20. If Memphis wins at Southern Miss and C-USA stinks, does anyone care?

    Feb 9, 2013, 7:11 PM EDT

    Memphis Southern Miss Basketball

    Memphis made a statement on Saturday afternoon by going into Hattiesburg and soundly beating Southern Miss. The final score was 89-76, and while the game was closer than the final would indicate, the Tigers were in control for the majority of the second half. It was as good as the Tigers have looked all season,…
