What’s Trending is a column examining the week that was in college basketball social media. Nick Fasulo (@nickfasuloSBN) is your weekly host.

Tom Izzo… Pony… Ride It

So Tom Izzo apparently appears in a new Werner Ladders TV commercial. That’s clever and funny and all, but SB Nation‘s Brian Floyd already made the remix for us because that is how he rolls… just laying beats over video and hitting the “UPLOAD TO YOUTUBE” button.

Yes, that would be the renowned R&B hit “Pony” by Ginuwine.

Baylor Bears Get Baptized

No for real. This is not a euphemism for getting shown up on defense while your opponent throws one down in your face. A handful of Baylor Bears were actually baptized last week. Isaiah Austin captured it all.

Scottie Wilbekin Celebrates Like A Soccer Player

Great circus shot, yes, from Florida’s star guard prior to the Gators’ Tuesday night game against Vanderbilt. But could his celebration be a bit overstated?

An Aerial View of Marcus Paige’s Game Winner

A gorgeous action shot of Marcus Paige’s game winning lay-up vs Triangle rival NC State. Nobody is talking about it, but Paige may be the nation’s most improved player this season. The Heels have had their struggles but they’re on a major roll now, in large part because their point guard has been a stud all season.


Thanks, @TarHeelPhoto

Orange Fans Are On Edge

After more or less cruising to victory in their first 20 games of the regular season, the once perfect Syracuse Orange are now 26-2. That’s nothing to be embarrassed by, of course, but since that point, six of their last seven games have been DECIDED BY SIX POINTS OR FEWER.

Fans are freaking out, as evidenced by this fan in the final moments of the Orange’s Monday night game vs. Maryland.
