    Joe Koshollek/Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

    There’s no denying the fact that Cody Zeller was one of the best players in college basketball last season, as the 7-footer averaged 16.5 points and 8.0 rebounds per game on an Indiana squad that won the Big Ten regular season title and reached the Sweet 16. But he’s gone now, as are Victor Oladipo,…

    Aug 31, 2013, 2:30 PM EDT

    Noah Vonleh

    All summer we’ve been hearing about the crop of incoming freshmen and their potential impact on the 2013-14 season. We’ve heard about Andrew Wiggins, Jabari Parker, Aaron Gordon and Kentucky’s incoming class since the late spring all-star games and even Florida’s Chris Walker has made recent headlines for his academic snafu. But one name from…

    Khalif Wyatt

    Khalif Wyatt went for 31 points in Temple’s win over No. 8 NC State to advance to the Round of 32.

    James Madison

    Wednesday night against LIU Brooklyn, James Madison had to know that pace would be what ultimately decides who would advance to play No. 1 Indiana in the Round of 64.

    Yogi Ferrell

    No. 3 Indiana is solidly at the top of the list of elite teams in the country, but after its 68-56 loss to No. 22 Wisconsin Saturday afternoon in the Big Ten semifinals, is it still a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament? If they’re not, the Badgers’ 12 straight wins over Indiana will…

    Game of the Day: No. 2 Indiana vs. No. 7 Michigan (4:00 p.m. ET, CBS) Indiana has already locked up at least a share of the Big Ten title by (oddly enough) losing to Ohio State this week, so it will be Michigan who is clawing for a piece of the pie Sunday. If Michigan…

    Mar 5, 2013, 11:35 PM EDT

    Aaron Craft

    Ohio State’s Aaron Craft has been the textbook example of a tough, physical defensive point guard for much of this season. He has been the centerpiece of a defense that is, in turn, the engine of the Buckeyes’ Top 15 attack. But Tuesday it wasn’t just Craft who was the wrench in the system of…

    Victor Oladipo Indiana

    Despite the hype that greeted then-No. 1 Indiana and its sophomore sensation, Cody Zeller, coming into the season, something has become clearer.
