Mar 11, 2014, 3:00 PM EDT
The American came into this season as a big unknown, but with five likely NCAA Tournament teams and three All-Americans, this is one of the better leagues in college basketball this season.

“I definitely enjoy it. I kinda hate playing against teams we’re just going to demolish. I really do. I think I play bad in those games because I don’t even want to play. But I understand that these games right here are much-needed and I think we did what we had to do to win…

Larry Brown’s SMU Mustangs have been much-improved this season, entering Sunday’s game at No. 21 UConn with 21 wins and a 10-4 record in American Athletic Conference play. Among those results are home victories over the Huskies, No. 11 Cincinnati and No. 22 Memphis, but something was missing from their resume: a quality win away…

By knocking off No. 7 Cincinnati on the road for an American Athletic Conference win on Saturday, No. 11 Louisville earned its biggest win of the season and came back to beat a Bearcat team that beat them at home earlier in the year. It was Louisville’s first win over a ranked opponent on the…

Louisville and Cincinnati have been together playing basketball in other leagues before. In its second matchup in the American Athletic Conference, the top two teams in the league grinded-out an ugly, low-scoring contest as No. 11 Louisville knocked off No. 7 Cincinnati for a huge 58-57 road win. Russ Smith (10 points, five assists, three steals) came…

Even though Louisville beat Houston by double-digits in early February, coach Rick Pitino was not pleased with his team’s performance. Specifically, he thought the Cardinals were defensively lacking.

With home wins over UConn, Memphis and Cincinnati, No. 23 SMU has three quality wins that look good on their NCAA tournament resume. Based largely upon those results, Larry Brown’s Mustangs look to be well-positioned to make their first NCAA tournament appearance since 1993. However, results like Sunday’s 71-64 loss at Temple won’t do SMU…
