    Zeke Marshall, Chauncey Gilliam

    The MAC tournament has one of the ugliest brackets you’ll ever see. Explaining the twisted branches of that tree would be pointless and boring, so just look at it and know that you don’t have to care until the first round – played at campus sites – is mercifully completed and we get to the…

This year, they’re 21-10 with perfect 16-0 conference record. Now it’s time for someone to earn the automatic bid. Norfolk State has…

    The finish was a controversial one, as a Delaware turnover was followed by a foul call that many watching the CAA tournament semifinal between the Blue Hens and James Madison disagreed with (and a possible missed traveling violation before the foul).

    Beating Maryland for the fifth consecutive time, which Virginia managed to do in overtime by the final score of 61-58, wasn’t going to do much for the resume of Tony Bennett’s team. But the result does guarantee the Cavaliers (21-10, 11-7) a first-round bye in next week’s ACC tournament, which could prove to be very…

    Bob Cantu

    There was the feeling heading into the weekend that USC is a team capable of making a run at the Pac-12 tournament, due to their talent and the unpredictable nature of the Pac-12 this season. Their two losses against Washington and Washington State certainly didn’t back up that argument, but if a report from KREM…
