  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. Late Night Snacks: Pluck of the Irish

    Feb 10, 2013, 2:27 AM EDT

    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…

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

    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…

  7. 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.…

  8. 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.…

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. 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,…

  15. Oklahoma earns resume-defining win with upset of No. 5 Kansas

    Feb 9, 2013, 6:34 PM EDT

    Amath M'Baye, Kevin Young

    We knew that Oklahoma was a pretty good basketball team heading into today’s game with No. 5 Kansas. We knew that they had plenty of size and athleticism. We knew that their big men were difficult to matchup with. We knew that they had Steven Pledger and Romero Osby and Amath M’Baye. But none of…

  16. Kansas is turning back the clock, and not in a good way

    Feb 9, 2013, 6:21 PM EDT

    Bill Self

    Typically, any discussion of the history of Kansas basketball is laced with superlatives. Recent events, however, have brought back all kinds of bad memories for the blue-blood program that usually lives in rarified air. Wednesday’s loss to TCU was quite possibly the worst upset in KU’s history, but it was also notable as the first…

  17. Late Afternoon Snacks: Badgers ready to Brust brackets in March?

    Feb 9, 2013, 4:35 PM EDT

    Michigan Wisconsin Basketball

    Game of the Day Wisconsin 65, No. 3 Michigan 62 (OT): By now you know that Ben Brust pulled a Rotnei to send the Badgers to overtime. That was the made-for-TV moment in this game, but the extra period was classic win-ugly Badger basketball. Holding the No. 3 team in the country to just a…

  18. Should Reginald Buckner have been the only one ejected after skirmish with Missouri?

    Feb 9, 2013, 4:14 PM EDT

    Reginald Buckner, Alex Oriakhi, Laurence Bowers

    An ugly scene broke out late in the second half of Missouri’s 98-79 win over Ole Miss on Saturday afternoon. With the game pretty much in hand, Missouri center Alex Oriakhi got tangled up with Reginald Buckner and fell. As he went to the ground, he grabbed Buckner’s foot and tripped him. Buckner got up…

  19. Could Miami take over No. 1 spot in the AP poll after win over UNC?

    Feb 9, 2013, 3:53 PM EDT

    Kenny Kadji

    If there were any week that would most easily allow for a team to jump in the polls from No. 8 to No. 1, it is this week with the Miami Hurricanes. After handily beating North Carolina, 87-61, the door could be open. After No. 1 Indiana lost to Illinois, No. 2 Florida lost to…

  20. No. 21 Missouri makes a much-needed statement vs. Ole Miss

    Feb 9, 2013, 3:50 PM EDT

    Ole Miss v Missouri

    Missouri’s 98-79 win over Ole Miss was exactly what the Tigers needed. And I’m not simply talking about the fact that they won a game they needed to win or that they beat a team that was tied for second in the SEC standings. The Tigers have been a shell of themselves since Bowers went…
