    No. 21 UConn advances to the American Athletic Conference title game, and they’ve got their role players to thank for it.

  5. 2014 American Athletic Conference Tournament Preview: Louisville looks to win its only year in the AAC

    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. Can Louisville win the league in its only year in the American or will Cincinnati, Memphis, SMU or UConn get in the way?

  8. Where did the defense go for No. 20 Memphis?

    Mar 6, 2014, 10:33 PM EDT

    Sean Kilpatrick, Geron Johnson

    Entering Tuesday night’s date with No. 20 Memphis, offensively-challenged No. 15 Cincinnati had scored more than 80 points in a game just five times. Their victims? Campbell, Kennesaw State, USC Upstate and Chicago State all lost to the Bearcats before Christmas. Temple, one of the bottom-feeders in the American, managed to score exactly 80 points…

  10. No. 11 Cincinnati’s loss to UConn shows it needs more offensive variety

    Mar 1, 2014, 2:53 PM EDT

    cincinnati connecticut

    The No. 11 Cincinnati Bearcats are one of the toughest teams in the country. Nobody will dispute that Mick Cronin’s team can rebound and defend with the best of them. But does Cincinnati have enough scoring and variety on offense to be a major factor in March? After Saturday’s 51-45 road loss to UConn, Cincinnati…

  11. UConn knocks off No. 11 Cincinnati despite off-night from Shabazz Napier

    Mar 1, 2014, 2:29 PM EDT

    Shabazz Napier, Ge'Lawn Guyn

    No. 11 Cincinnati is the kind of team that should, theoretically, give UConn problems. They are good as anyone in the country defensively, and UConn is not a difficult team to develop a game-plan for. Slow down Shabazz Napier, makes life difficult for Ryan Boatright and Deandre Daniels, and win. The Bearcats attack the offensive…

    Drake v Wichita State

    Arguing over whether or not Wichita State deserves to be the No. 1 team in the country is a conversation that is going to overtake college hoops over the next couple of weeks. Here’s my take: Florida deserves to be the No. 1 team in the country this week, even with their struggles over the…

    GAME OF THE DAY: No. 18 Kentucky 77, LSU 76 (OT) A Julius Randle basket in the final seconds of overtime proved to be the difference as Kentucky beat the Tigers in Lexington. Aaron Harrison scored 21 points and James Young added 20 as the young Wildcats have now won two straight since losing to…

  14. No. 11 Louisville wins wild game thanks to Russ Smith heroics over No. 7 Cincinnati

    louisville cincinnati feb

    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…

  15. Louisville gets a defensive makeover

    Rick Pitino

    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. Through the squad’s first ten AAC games, Louisville had held teams to .93 points per possession, a certainly stingy mark but one that must have seemed poor…

    When it’s late-February, you play in the ACC and you’re undefeated, you’re the No. 1 team in the country. That’s just the way that it works. But does that mean that Syracuse is the best team in the country? Well, that’s a different story. I hate using the term “luck” when it comes to sports.…

  17. Sean Kilpatrick, Justin Jackson lead No. 10 Cincinnati past Houston

    cronin

    No. 10 Cincinnati, a team few discussed when assessing the American Athletic Conference race back in November, has proven to be the class of the conference to this point in the season thanks in large part to the play of their seniors. And that was once again the case on Saturday, as Sean Kilpatrick and…

    GAME OF THE DAY: Ole Miss 91, Missouri 88  This was one of the more important games of the day when looking ahead to Selection Sunday, with the SEC needing teams other than Florida and Kentucky to step up. Marshall Henderson hit eight three-pointers and scored 29 points to lead the Rebels offensively, with Jarvis…

  19. Bright future evident after SMU’s blowout win over No. 7 Cincinnati

    Feb 8, 2014, 10:23 PM EDT

    Temple v SMU

    Nick Russell finished with 15 points and Nic Moore chipped in with 14 as SMU picked up their biggest win in the Larry Brown era on Saturday night, smacking around No. 7 Cincinnati in Moody Coliseum and eventually winning 76-55. The Mustangs held Cincinnati to 35.4% and 4-for-22 from three, which isn’t exactly a shock…

    GAME OF THE NIGHT: Belmont 99, Murray State 96 Belmont hasn’t been in the OVC very long, but their three games against Murray State have all been good. Thursday’s meeting was the latest chapter in this series, with the Bruins hanging on to beat the Racers with Blake Jenkins and J.J. Mann scoring 25 points…

  21. Cincinnati’s Sean Kilpatrick is awesome, again, vs. UConn. When will we notice?

    Feb 6, 2014, 9:35 PM EDT

    Sean Kilpatrick, Corey Allen Jr.

    One of my favorite twitter feeds to follow is @NoEscalators. It’s run by a group of UConn fans who (I’m assuming) imbibe an adult beverage or nine during Husky games and let loose with often hilarious — usually quite vulgar — analysis of the game. Once in a while, however, the feed is actually quite…

    I spent the morning arguing with Gary Parrish of CBSSports.com for his decision to include SMU in his Top 25. You can see it here. SMU is sitting right there at No. 25 despite the fact that, just six days ago, the Mustangs lost to South Florida at South Florida. His justification, more or less,…

    GAME OF THE DAY: Virginia 48, No. 18 Pittsburgh 45 It wasn’t pretty, and the game lacked the offensive fireworks seen last night at the Carrier Dome, but the Cavaliers and Panthers staged a tough battle in Pittsburgh. The difference was a Malcolm Brogdon three-pointer with less than a second remaining, moving Virginia to 8-1…

    GAME OF THE NIGHT: UCLA 70, Oregon 68 It wasn’t pretty but the matchup between the Bruins and Ducks didn’t lack for drama. Travis Wear’s basket with 5.3 seconds remaining proved to be the difference as UCLA moved into sole possession of second place in the Pac-12. Wear (12 points) was one of three Bruins…

  25. No. 12 Louisville blows golden chance for season-changing win

    Jan 30, 2014, 10:04 PM EDT

    Cincinnati v Louisville

    It sounds weird saying this about the No. 12 team in the country, but I actually liked what I saw from Louisville on Thursday night. Their press looked as good as it has all season long, forcing 20 Bearcat turnovers. Montrezl Harrell played really well in the low post, finishing with 18 points on 9-for-13…
