  6. ACC Tournament Preview

    Duke Miami

    The ACC was weird this season. Miami won the league. Think about that. Miami. That, alone, is enough to leave you scratching your head. But there’s more to it. Duke was the best team in the country heading into conference play and looks like they are right back in that conversation now that Ryan Kelly…

    It hasn’t always been easy to watch the SEC this season. Florida has been the conference’s best team, but after that we see little differentiation and a whole bunch of bad losses by teams in the middle of the conference. So what does that mean for the SEC tournament in Nashville? It could mean a…

  10. 2013 SWAC Tournament preview

    Mar 12, 2013, 9:00 AM EST

    Alabama A&M v Vanderbilt

    Due to extenuating circumstances, the SWAC Tournament has one of the most unique formats of any postseason conference tournament this year. The regular season conference champion, Texas Southern, is ineligible for postseason play due to low APR scores. Add in the fact that the third place team, Arkansas-Pine Bluff, is in the same situation, and…

    Big East

    UPDATED 11 March 2013, 11:21 p.m. ET We’ve seen signs of the dissolving Big East as we know it, celebrated its triumphs, and eulogized its ending for much of the 2012-13 season. This week in New York City, though, it will come to a conclusion with the last conference tournament for the Big East as…

    Quietly, Norfolk State has picked up where it left off last year. The Spartans shocked Missouri with a second-round (ahem, first round) victory in the NCAA Tournament as a two seed last season. 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…

    Lamont Jones

    The MAAC is wild, been that way all season. Ten teams from the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference will finish the final act to an unpredictable conference schedule at the birthplace of basketball in Springfield, Mass. Five teams are separated by only two games. Niagara enters Thursday with a No. 1 followed by Rider, Loyola (Md.),…

    When C.J. McCollum went down with a broken foot in a January non-conference game against VCU, it appeared one of the major storylines in mid-major basketball had gone down with it. But that’s not the way it turned out. Bucknell won the regular season championship outright, but Lehigh continued to play strong basketball, with Lafayette…

  20. Weekend preview: Who breaks loose in the Atlantic 10?

    Feb 15, 2013, 10:15 AM EST

    CBE Hall Of Fame Classic

    Who proves themselves to be elite in the Atlantic 10 this weekend? If there was a conference that had a collective of bigger games this weekend, I’ve yet to see it. Three games, six teams, with conference title hopes play on Saturday. St. Joseph’s (14-9, 5-5) at La Salle (17-6, 7-3), Temple (16-8, 5-5) at UMass…

  21. Weekend preview: Gonzaga can’t figure out San Francisco on the road

    Feb 15, 2013, 9:30 AM EST

    WCC Basketball Tournament - Semifinals San Francisco v Saint Mary's

    Who’s getting upset? No. 5 Gonzaga at San Francisco (Sat., 4:30 p.m. EST, ROOT): History is suggesting this one. Look at the past few years, and the Bulldogs have had an incredibly hard time traveling to War Memorial Gym. The last time they went there, they lost 66-65 last season. The time before that? A 96-91…

  22. Weekend preview: Ohio State/Wisconsin highlight, Duke/Maryland is sneaky good

    Feb 15, 2013, 8:45 AM EST

    Wisconsin v Ohio State

    Game of the weekend: No. 13 Ohio State at No. 20 Wisconsin (Sun., 1:00 p.m. EST, CBS): Another weekend, another huge battle in the Big Ten battle. These things are starting to ease into the place of NFL Sundays real quick. Wisconsin took a loss at Minnesota on Thursday night. That hurts, but a win…

  23. Weekend Preview: Is this the weekend Michigan State takes control of B1G?

    Keith Appling

    Is this the weekend Michigan State takes control of the Big Ten?: It seems like we make the mistake every season: we forget about the Spartans after a couple of losses to good teams in the non-conference portion of the schedule, only to watch as Tom Izzo leads his team on a courageous run through…

    Thad Matta

    Game of the Weekend: No. 1 Indiana at No. 10 Ohio State (Sun. 1:00 p.m. ET, CBS) Oh hey, look at that. The best game of the weekend is in the Big Ten. Who saw that coming? Last Saturday, the Hoosiers beat Michigan in a thriller at Assembly Hall in Bloomington, but they turned around and…

    Game of the Week: No. 14 Miami at No. 19 NC State (4:00 p.m. ET, CBS) Clearly, the best game this weekend is between Michigan and Indiana, but seeing as we already devoted 800 words to that matchup, we’re going to go ahead and highlight some other folks here. Miami wants to stake their claim…
