Sunday was the fourth straight day with nothing but back-to-back great basketball games on the tube, with the slate kicking off at noon (if you’re on the East Coast) and finishing about 12 hours later, when UCLA put down Cincinnati to claim the final spot in the Sweet 16. If you tapped out before the final half of the…
Wichita State head coach Gregg Marshall isn’t the only one in the family that can cause a scene, apparently.
Duke was unable to handle the Gamecocks as South Carolina eliminated the second-seeded Blue Devils, 88-81.
No. 2 Kentucky just barely held on to thwart an upset attempt from No. 10 Wichita State with a 65-62 win Sunday afternoon.
Louisville coughed up an eight-point halftime lead in an upset loss to Michigan.
Long thought the heir for Jim Boeheim at Syracuse, Mike Hopkins has reportedly jumped ship to be head coach at Washington.
Officials whistled Saint Mary’s Jordan Hunter for committing the foul of “being shoved in the back by an opponent.” It sealed a victory for Arizona, which moves on to face Xavier next week. The refs are really on a roll of excellence, folks.

No. 8 Wisconsin has knocked out overall No. 1 Villanova in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. Trailing by four points at halftime, Villanova managed to take a lead in the second half but never stretched it to more than seven. Wisconsin went on a 15-5 run in the game’s final minutes—with key support from Bronson…
Here is Syracuse’s Jim Boeheim a week ago, after the team was (very reasonably) left out of the NCAA Tournament bracket:

A police affidavit has been released giving more details about what police have found in the investigation into what part forward Josh Jackson played in damaging the car of McKenzie Calvert, a guard on the women’s basketball team.
Seton Hall was down 72-71 in the final 22 seconds of today’s game against Arkansas and had to foul to try and avoid losing, so Desi Rodriguez put his hands on Jaylen Barford to extend the game. Barford hit the floor hard, but given the situation, it didn’t seem malicious—and looked as if Barford sold it. After…
LaVar Ball, father of UCLA freshman superstar Lonzo, has been in the news a ton lately. The ur-Sports Dad has wedged his way into every inch of airtime offered to him to talk shit about NBA legends, call their sons losers, and proclaim the supreme basketball ability of his three large sons. In case you were still on…
Deadspin’s favorite life guru Plies took a break from dispensing wisdom on Instagram to take in yesterday’s NCAA tournament game between Florida State and Florida Gulf Coast. Fittingly, the musician found himself drawn to his fellow musicians and wound up in the center of the FGCU band:
