    This was more than just a loss for No. 14 North Carolina. The 83-59 mollywhopping they took at the hands of No. 1 Indiana on Tuesday night is a legitimate cause for alarm for the folks in Chapel Hill. Why? I thought you’d never ask. Marcus Paige is not a point guard. He’s not Kendall…

Third time’s the charm, right? Syracuse and San Diego State hope the West Coast is friendlier than the East when they tip off at…

    spt-120108-boryan

    There isn’t a team in the country that is consistently underrated the way that Wisconsin is consistently underrated. It’s almost a rite of passage for the program: you don’t become a true Badger until the pundits decide you’re the reason that Wisconsin will struggle. Jared Berggren couldn’t replace Jon Leuer?
