    Feb 17, 2013, 5:33 PM EDT

    Minnesota Iowa Basketball

    So much for building on their win Wednesday night over No. 20 Wisconsin. With 12:57 remaining in the first half Minnesota (18-8, 6-7 Big Ten) led Iowa 21-5 after three free throws from Austin Hollins and looked to be well on their way to picking up a decisive road victory. Obviously that didn’t happen, as…

  2. Iowa creeps onto NCAA tournament bubble after win over Minnesota

    Feb 17, 2013, 4:22 PM EDT

    Iowa Minnesota

    In the nation’s toughest conference, Iowa has lost a handful of disappointing games in the final minutes, games that, had they been wins, would have made for an impressive league record. That includes being within one point in the final six minutes against No. 1 Indiana. It includes a strong first half against No. 4…

  3. No. 23 Wisconsin takes advantage of ice-cold shooting from No. 13 Ohio State in win

    Feb 17, 2013, 3:09 PM EDT


    There are two key ways to beat Ohio State: 1) Force Deshaun Thomas to be the lone offensive option and dare some other Buckeye to beat you. 2) Keep up the offensive pressure and make shots, which stops Ohio State from turning defense into offense. Happen to do both in the same game and the…

    Doug McDermott

    Creighton forward Doug McDermott has been met with almost nothing but praise since he arrived on campus in 2010. Now, he has joined elite company. McDermott scored his 2,000th career point Saturday in a win over Evansville, becoming just the third player in Missouri Valley history to reach that milestone through three collegiate seasons. The…

    Marshall Henderson

    Another short chapter in the sensational story of Marshall Henderson was written Saturday night and all it took was one quote. Literally. After Henderson scored 25 points in an 84-74 overtime win over Georgia Saturday night, he had just one line for the media in attendance. The scene was short and it was simple. Nick…

    Arizona State had fallen off the bubble when they lost at Utah on Saturday, their third loss in the last four games. Their RPI was in the 70’s. It was their second loss of the season to a team with an RPI above 150. The Sun Devils needed to win at Colorado on Saturday, and…

  7. VIDEO: John Calipari tees off on his team after 30-point loss at Tennessee

    Feb 17, 2013, 9:48 AM EDT


    The game started with John Calipari trying to make a statement, as Jarrod Polson started at the point over Ryan Harrow. But that didn’t make much of a difference for the Wildcats, as Kentucky found themselves down 33-12 just 11 minutes into the first half en route to an embarrassing, 88-58 loss at Tennessee on…

  10. Don’t be concerned about Duke following 83-81 loss at Maryland

    Feb 17, 2013, 1:15 AM EDT


    COLLEGE PARK, Md. – Should we really be too concerned with the Duke Blue Devils after their 83-81 loss to Maryland on Saturday night? Well, first and foremost, you should never lose a basketball game when your opposition turns the ball over 26 times. So yes, we should be concerned that the No. 2 team…

    San Diego St UNLV Basketball

    This was the kind of game we’ve come to expect from the Mountain West – multiple lead changes, tough players on both sides and a close finish. There are no easy outs in this league. It’s a shame they can’t all go to the Big Dance. San Diego State took a 40-34 lead into the…

    COLLEGE PARK, Md. – Losing to Duke on Saturday night was not an option for the Maryland Terrapins. Saturday’s game against the No. 2 Blue Devils was as “must-win” as “must-win” gets. It was simple. In order to have any shot at earning an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament, any shot at all, they…

    Every game matters in the Ivy. If you’re Harvard and Princeton, vying for the league lead in mid-February, that goes double. The two teams entered this game with the Ivy lead on the line, so Harvard made some serious hay with the win. The Crimson moved to 7-1, leaving the Tigers 1.5 games back at…

    AMHERST, Mass. — Nineteen seasons ago, John Chaney tried to fight then-UMass coach John Calipari in the post game press conference. In 2013, the Temple-UMass rivalry resumed with postseason implications. Following an 83-82 road win over the Minutemen on Saturday, the Temple Owls keep NCAA tournaments hopes alive after doing its best to ruin them…

Oklahoma State kicked things off this morning, taking a hard-fought…

  18. Missouri loses at Arkansas, but don’t complain about the refs

    Feb 16, 2013, 7:06 PM EDT

    Rickey Scott,  Earnest Ross

    Barring a collapse down the stretch, Missouri isn’t going to miss the NCAA tournament. Losing 73-71 at Arkansas doesn’t change that. They’ve beaten Illinois, VCU and Ole Miss and they have just one truly horrible loss — at LSU. Given the rest of the teams that are currently sitting on the bubble, the Tigers are…
