Top 25 Games

  • #1 Ohio State 89, Illinois 70: “Looking to bounce back from the salty trip to West Lafayette, Ohio State placed five in double figures led by 21 from a previously struggling David Lighty, to overwhelm Illinois 89-70 tonight in an underwhelming Value City Arena.” (Eleven Warriors)

Other Games of Interest

  • Michigan State 53, Minnesota 48: “The Gophers needed this one. The Gophers had this game won. And then Tubby Smith watched as his team let Michigan State end the game on a 14-1 run. The Gophers lost 53-48 and fell to 6-9 in conference play. Talk of the NCAA Tournament is now silly. The Gophers have lost 6 of 7 games. NCAA Tournament teams don’t let that happen even with injuries playing a factor. ” (The Daily Gopher)
  • Virginia Tech 76, Wake Forest 62: “Fresh off a one-game suspension for a marijuana charge, freshman Jarell Eddie was smokin’ hot as he helped lead the Hokies to a 76-62 win over Wake Forest on the road. Eddie scored a career-high 17 points and didn’t miss a single shot, going 6/6 from the field, including 3/3 from behind the arc.” (Tech Hoops)

News/Analysis

  • Jimmy B, Maybe It’s Time To Stop Talking For A While, Champ: Taking Jim Boeheim to task for some of his recent press conference antics. (Troy Nunes is an Absolute Magician)
  • Kentucky Wildcats Basketball: Rick Bozich Has A Beef With UK’s Recruits: “Rick Bozich thinks it’s wrong that all four of UK’s prized recruits next year have opted to play in the McDonalds All-American game and the Jordan Brand Classic (Nike), which has, in recent years, established itself as second only to the McDonalds event in prestige, rather than ditching one of the two for the Kentucky Derby Festival Classic. A recruit can only play in two all-star events like that according to NCAA by-laws.” (A Sea of Blue)
  • Kansas Deals With Good And Bad Changes In Win: “As usual following last night’s win over Oklahoma State Coach Self and the players met with the media. Some of the issues addressed included what’s different since Kansas State? How will Tyshawn’s departure affect Jayhawk chemistry and what does Thomas Robinson’s return really mean for the Jayhawks? How about some all too simplistic reaction as to what it means, where we’re going and if this team is headed in the right direction to get there.” (Rock Chalk Talk)
  • I do NOT want a double bye in the Big East Tournament: Explaining why some Cardinal fans don’t want their team to get a double bye in the upcoming Big East Tournament. (Card Chronicle)
