    Jan 25, 2013, 12:43 PM EDT


    On January 25, 1988, Pittsburgh forward Jerome Lane threw down one of the college basketball’s most unforgettable dunks. After receiving a pass on the break from point guard Sean Miller, Lane took flight, dunking over Providence guard Carlton Screen and shattering the backboard. Lane walked away from the scene to high-fives from his teammates, cheers…

    Someone wants to be relevant in the Triangle, right?: North Carolina heads to Raleigh to take on No. 18 NC State on Saturday (7:00 p.m. ET, ESPN) in a game that features two of the bigger disappointments in the ACC this season. And, frankly, it’s not totally unexpected. We knew that North Carolina was young heading…

    Lon Kruger, Buddy Hield

    Who’s Getting Upset?: Oklahoma at No. 3 Kansas (4:00 p.m. ET, ESPN) I think that Oklahoma has a chance to knock off Kansas in Phog Allen this weekend.

    Jan 25, 2013, 2:09 AM EDT

    Nate Austin, Kelly Olynyk

    Given the way in which No. 10 Gonzaga lost at Butler on Saturday night, with a turnover leading to Roosevelt Jones’ game-winner as time expired, it would have been easy for many teams to suffer a hangover of sorts. That wasn’t an issue for Mark Few’s Bulldogs however, as the Bulldogs went on a 23-6…
