Everyone expects to see a certain number of lifeless offensive possessions and back-rimmed jumpers in any college basketball game, basically for the same reason you don’t expect to see the most crisply-turned double plays at a minor league ballgame, and it’s really not surprising to see more of those bad things during…
After 40 tense, often ugly minutes of basketball, North Carolina defeated Gonzaga, 71-65, to win another national championship, their first since 2009. The game featured 44 fouls, a combined field goal percentage of 34.8, and a series of inexplicable late referee interventions. At one point, Gonzaga went over eight…
Thank you, Gonzaga. It was as if you read my angst-riddled mind on Saturday night.
Before Jordan Mathews was a basketball player on Gonzaga, he was a slightly smaller basketball player on the children’s show Teletubbies. There he is, practicing with his dad Phil, former coach of the San Francisco Dons and current coach of Riverside City College. Jordan’s shooting percentage wasn’t as great back…
Gonzaga beat West Virginia tonight, 61-58, to advance to the Elite Eight, thanks to a clutch three-pointer from Jordan Mathews and several duds from WVU’s Jevon Carter on the other end.
Officials allowed Gonzaga to get away with a clear basket interference amidst a late, improbable Northwestern comeback—and when Chris Collins registered his dismay with the blown call, assessed the Wildcats head coach with a technical foul.
Pittsburgh and #9-ranked Gonzaga began their seasons yesterday at Foster Field House in the Marine Corps base on Okinawa, Japan, or at least they tried to. A slippery floor surface caused all manner of slips and falls, including the particularly gnarly one below, and the game was called off at halftime.
Fuck you Sharonda, you broke my heart.
This kid from Gonzaga won $500 for doing something nobody on Earth could do again on purpose. Seems like it should be worth more than that?
Gonzaga's Przemek Karnowski is from Poland. Late in the Bulldogs' 8-9 matchup with Oklahoma State today, he got fouled several times. CBS announcer Andrew Catalon decided to dub the Cowboys' strategy "Hack-A-Polack."
Wichita State became only the seventh 9-seed in history to defeat a 1-seed, knocking off Gonzaga 76-70 in a result only hacky headline writers would call "shocking."
Southern is holding close with Gonzaga (get thee to TBS) and John Stockton is concerned.
We've done enough loving on March Madness this week. March Madness is a wonderful time of the year, but it is also to be hated on: The fluffy mascots dancing around like they own the place, the pepped-out pep squads cheering like they actually believe in something, the crabby coaches, the clueless announcers, and the…
After a traveling call ended what should have been Butler's last chance to overcome a one-point deficit at Hinkle Fieldhouse against eighth-ranked Gonzaga, a turnover with 3.5 seconds remaining led to an off-balance Roosevelt Jones shot that found the basket and delivered Butler's Bulldogs a 64-63 win that preserved…
One of the most entertaining college basketball games so far this season happened Saturday night in Spokane, as the 13th-ranked and undefeated Illini downed Gonzaga 85-74. The final score betrays what was an extremely competitive game: tied at the half, Illinois only managed to put away the Bulldogs for good once…
A sole early game again, as 'Cuse tries to avoid getting Jayhawked, and Gonzaga tests our patience with its "Cinderella" label for the 20th consecutive year. Follow along in the comments, won't you?
The days of Casey Calvary and Matt Santangelo are gone; Gonzaga has become a West Coast Duke. Solomon Alabi has the name of an extra from Angel Heart but is also a defensive force. Will we see Matt Bouldin cry?

NORTH CAROLINA TAR HEELS
1) Make it Wayne Let's get this out of the way for those waking from comas: Tyler Hansbrough is the ACC's all-time leading scorer and Tywon Lawson's got an…
Demetri Goodson's thrilling end-to-end bank-in with 0.9 seconds left lifts the Bulldogs over Western Kentucky. If Gonzaga isn't careful, it's going to develop a reputation for these.
