  2. The Morning Mix

    Jan 28, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT


    How can we really begin to describe this past weekend? A bat got loose at the Bradley Center. Northern Illinois scored 4 points in a single half. Marshall Henderson almost got bum-rushed by the Auburn student section. North Carolina got trounced. UCLA got trounced. Syracuse lost, Louisville lost. Heck, Lehigh lost at home to Lafayette…

  4. Northeastern takes care of George Mason, extending CAA lead to three games

    Jan 27, 2013, 10:47 PM EDT


    With preseason favorites Drexel and Delaware getting off to slow starts, it seemed as if the Colonial Athletic Association race would be one destined to involve a number of teams. But at this point the most intriguing race may be that for second place, as Bill Coen’s Northeastern Huskies moved to 8-0 in CAA play…

  5. No. 25 Miami remains in control of ACC race, whipping Florida State

    Jan 27, 2013, 8:58 PM EDT

    Shane Larkin, Michael Ojo

    In the aftermath of their emphatic win over No. 1 Duke, the question for No. 25 Miami was whether or not they would suffer a letdown against in-state rival Florida State. After navigating early foul trouble for both Durand Scott and Kenny Kadji, Jim Larranaga’s team put away the Seminoles in a manner befitting of…

  6. Will No. 2 Michigan, after beating Illinois, move to the top of the polls?

    Jan 27, 2013, 8:14 PM EDT

    Michigan v Illinois

    With 40 minutes standing between themselves and a possible top spot in the national polls, No. 2 Michigan played like a team that couldn’t care less what their ranking is.

    Jan 27, 2013, 6:41 PM EDT


    Expected to be a highly competitive race before the season began, the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference has not disappointed its followers to this point in the season.

    Jan 27, 2013, 4:49 PM EDT

    Lafayette Lehigh Basketball

    In the immediate aftermath of Lehigh’s 65-62 win at Bucknell on Wednesday night, more than a few people believed that the Mountain Hawks would maintain control of the Patriot League race until the two preseason favorites meet again on February 18. On Sunday afternoon, long-time rival Lafayette had other ideas. Levi Giese led five Leopards…

  9. Victor Oladipo carries No. 7 Indiana in big conference win over No. 13 Michigan State

    Jan 27, 2013, 3:24 PM EDT

    Victor Oladipo Indiana

    Despite the hype that greeted then-No. 1 Indiana and its sophomore sensation, Cody Zeller, coming into the season, something has become clearer. As important as Zeller is to Indiana’s ultimate fate and its national championship hopes this season, junior Victor Oladipo is quickly holding just as much a stake in that future. On an afternoon…

  11. What was Jordan Adams thinking with steal at end of UCLA’s loss to Arizona St.?

    Jan 27, 2013, 11:14 AM EDT

    Jordan Adams

    Coaches tell their players to play through the final buzzer, fair enough. But UCLA freshman Jordan Adams learned on Sunday that the concept of “playing through the buzzer” is a two-way street. The Bruins trailed Arizona State by 18 in the final moments and, as the Sun Devils tried to dribble out what remained of…

  12. Pregame Shootaround 1.27.13: Big Ten battle between Indiana, Michigan St. reigns supreme

    Cody Zeller

    Game of the Day: No. 7 Indiana vs. No. 13 Michigan State (1:00 p.m. ET, CBS) Michigan State did not take advantage of its frontcourt assets, Derrick Nix and Adreian Payne nearly enough in its 49-47 win over Wisconsin earlier in the week. Now, against Cody Zeller and Indiana, they’ll need to. The Spartans cannot afford…

  13. GIF: Marshall Henderson trolling Auburn’s student section is glorious

    Jan 27, 2013, 1:19 AM EDT


    You want to know why Marshall Henderson is the most polarizing player in the country? Because he can score 15 points on an off-night, hit the game-winning free throws in a game where Ole Miss can’t hit free throws and move the Rebels to 6-0 in the SEC with a 63-61 win over Auburn on…

    Game of the Night La Salle 69, No. 19 VCU 61: Want to make someone feel unwelcome in the A-10? Let them play La Salle. The Explorers knocked off No. 9 Butler in Philly a few days ago, and then traveled to Richmond and laid the hurt on No. 19 VCU as well. John Giannini…

  16. Lorenzo Brown shows UNC what they’re missing in 91-83 win

    Jan 26, 2013, 10:09 PM EDT

    North Carolina v North Carolina State

    UNC’s Marcus Paige is no Lorenzo Brown. He’s also no Kendall Marshall, the NBA draft pick who made passing an art form during his time in Chapel Hill. Then again, neither is he Larry Drew II, Marshall’s predecessor, who mis-handled the UNC offense and sulked away to join UCLA when he was benched. Paige is…

  17. Rotnei Clarke scores 24 to help beat Temple in first game back from neck injury

    Jan 26, 2013, 8:38 PM EDT

    Rotnei Clarke

    We all cringed when Rotnei Clarke went down against Dayton in just his second A-10 game since transferring to Butler from Arkansas. The electrifying shooter essentially speared the basket support and was lucky to come away with a minor neck injury. Butler did pretty well while Clarke rested his vertebrae, beating Richmond and then edging…

    No. 15 New Mexico entered Saturday’s at San Diego State as the only undefeated team remaining in the Mountain West. 34 points later, the Lobos left with a 55-34 loss to the Aztecs in a game that should give you a sense of just how tough that conference is going to be this year. New Mexico…

  19. VIDEO: Harvard needs OT to sweep Ivy foe Dartmouth

    Jan 26, 2013, 7:57 PM EDT

    Siyani Chambers, Olivier Hanlan

    The Ivy League is so different from the rest of DI basketball. There’s the relatively low status of athletes on an Ivy campus, the Friday/Saturday double headers and the refusal to stage a post-season tournament. Then there are artifacts like today’s game between Harvard and Dartmouth. Right now, the Crimson are 2-0 atop the league…

  20. UCLA gets Bachynski’d in 78-60 road loss at Arizona State

    Jan 26, 2013, 7:35 PM EDT

    Tony Parker, Jordan Bachynski

    UCLA has been on one heck of a roller-coaster ride this season. Fans were preparing to run Ben Howland out of town on a rail after a November home loss to Cal Poly, and another round of midseason player defections. Then came a ten-game win streak and solid play from freshmen Kyle Anderson and Shabazz…
