    P.J. Hairston

    The news coming out of Conte Forum after UNC’s 82-70 win over Boston College last night has less to do with the outcome of the game itself as it does the terrifying collision between PJ Hairston and Dexter Strickland.

  2. The Morning Mix

    Jan 30, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT


    Marshall Henderson got his first real taste of the big time last night, and while he finished with 21 points, his Ole Miss squad dropped their first SEC game of the season to a Kentucky team that actually looked pretty good.

    Wisconsin v Ohio State

    You would think that, by now, the scouting report on No. 11 Ohio State would be readily available. They have Deshaun Thomas. He likes to shoot a lot. He’s really the only scoring threat that the Buckeyes have. Do not let him get into a rhythm. On Tuesday night, he did. Thomas finished with 25…

    Look at this picture (well, if you’re squeamish, don’t): What’s your first thought? Because mine was, ‘Have a nice offseason, Jordan.
