    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…

  2. 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…

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

    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…

    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,…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

    Jalen Steele

    An already thin Mississippi State roster has gotten thinner as junior Jalen Steele was suspended indefinitely for a violation of team rules, the school announced Saturday.

  12. Despite loss to Wisconsin, Michigan’s Big Ten outlook still favorable

    Feb 9, 2013, 2:32 PM EDT

    Mitch McGary

    It might take some time for No. 3 Michigan to shake off its disappointing 65-62 loss to Wisconsin Saturday afternoon in Madison. After a rainbow three from Tim Hardaway, Jr. sailed through with 0:02 remaining, it looked all but over, until a half-court buzzer-beater from Ben Brust sent the game into overtime where the Wolverines…

    Dan Fahey, Ben Brust

    Just another day in the Big Ten. No. 3 Michigan had a chance to put themselves into a great position for a run at the Big Ten regular season title by winning in the Kohl Center, and it looked like they were going to do just that when Tim Hardaway Jr. hit a contested three…

    Feb 9, 2013, 1:28 PM EDT

    Temple Dayton

    Up to the final seven seconds of Temple’s 72-71 win over Dayton Saturday afternoon, all was well. Those last seven seconds, though, were something else entirely. Khalif Wyatt hit a three-pointer with 0:07 to play, officially erasing a 10-point second-half deficit and putting Temple ahead by one, 72-71. That set Dayton up with one final…

  15. Could Coach K return to Team USA again for 2016 Olympics?

    Feb 9, 2013, 12:01 PM EDT

    Mike Krzyzewski

    Despite his insistence that the 2012 Olympics in London would be his last with Team USA, it appears that Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski could be in for another run in the 2016 Games. Team USA chairman Jerry Colangelo has yet to name a replacement and has pushed the deadline for finding a new coach past the…
