    Lebanese Basketball Game Turns Ugly with Giant On-Court Brawl (Video)

    A former ACC scoring champ was the unfortunate target of a cheap shot and subsequent brawl at a Lebanese basketball game over the weekend. Former Maryland player Terrell Stoglin got hit in the back of the head during a match between Club Al Rayadi and Club Sagesse.  Unfortunately, the cameras don’t cover the actual punch that […]

    Things got ugly during overtime of Monday’s Big 12 match-up between Texas and No. 14 Baylor. Texas would go on to pull off the 61-59 upset, but the bigger news was the skirmish that broke out with just under two minutes remaining in the extra frame and the Longhorns leading by three.  It began with a […]

    The Louisville Cardinals improved to 23-6 overall and 11-5 in the ACC following an 81-59 victory over the Florida State Seminoles earlier today.  It was a dominating effort for the Cards that was highlighted by this ridiculous alley-oop from 6’8″ forward Montrezl Harrell. Check it out: Harrell finished the game with 16 points, four rebounds, […]

    Xavier Rathan-Mayes. Remember that name. (You’ve already forgotten it, haven’t you? It’s ok. It’s a tough name to remember.) Xavier put on nothing less than a legendary performance last night, scoring 30 points in 4 minutes and 38 seconds while trying to guide his Florida State Seminoles back to victory against Miami. Sadly, the Noles […]

    Kansas State Usher Gets a Little Jiggy with It on the Dance Cam (Video)

    When you’re in Manhattan, Kansas, I’m guessing you have to make your own fun. Fortunately, for people like this Kansas State usher, that doesn’t seem to be a problem. Clearly, he’s got his whole schtick down, and it’s pretty terrific. He’s like Jena Maroney on 30 Rock, grabbing a microphone, then going, “No, I can’t […]

    Oh, man. I would think that certain people who sweat a lot learn that there are certain colors they just shouldn’t wear. Or they should just stay covered up. Oregon State basketball coach Wayne Tinkle has either not learned this lesson or just doesn’t care. Here’s the coach on the sideline, looking like he was just […]

    The late, great Dean Smith was the man responsible for creating the four corners offense and using it during college basketball games  So in their first home game since Smith’s passing on February 7, the UNC Tar Heels honored the coaching legend by running the four corners offense on their first offensive possession.  And much […]

    Purdue’s Jon Octeus Brings the Thunder Down on Indiana (Video)

    Jon Octeus of Purdue may not be an NBA player (yet?), but this monster dunk definitely outperforms the ranks of college basketball. This play doesn’t lend itself to TOO much analysis, but that doesn’t mean it’s not plenty fun to watch. The Octe-gon (my new nickname for him), drives, pulls back, and releases with the […]

    The Las Vegas Strip Dims Its Lights in Tribute To Jerry Tarkanian (Video)

    Last night’s tribute to Jerry Tarkanian was touching, epic, and must have been a gigantic logistical nightmare. For three minutes last night, the Las Vegas strip went dark(ish) as 40 hotels and casinos killed all their non-essential lights in tribute to Jerry Tarkanian, the famous coach of UNLV who passed away earlier this week. While this […]
