    It's March. Championship Week begins Friday, and we're less than two weeks away from the Big Dance. We'll probably see a multitude of thrillers, overtime games and clutch performances in the coming weeks. At least, we hope we will. With the gam...

  5. Iowa, Kentucky move in wrong direction

    Myron Medcalf

    On Thursday, a few teams helped their respective causes. And a few teams continued to miss their potential. See: Kentucky and Iowa. Wrong direction Kentucky: Even though the Wildcats suffered their second overtime loss of the season to Arkansas...

  6. Weekend homework: Louisville-Cincy, Part 2

    Myron Medcalf

    The first time Louisville and Cincinnati met this season, the Bearcats were the victors. Barely. That 69-66 win for Cincy on Jan. 30 is the only home loss on Louisville's resume since Jan. 12. The Cards have won nine of their past 10, with Cincinn...

  7. Weekend Picks: Florida over Kentucky?

    Myron Medcalf

    About last weekend. Well, Wichita State stayed undefeated after securing a win over Northern Iowa, but most predicted that. Larry Brown is in the national coach of the year conversation nearly 30 years after winning the national title with Kans...

  8. Weekend Picks: Wichita State's first loss?

    Myron Medcalf

    First, let's take a moment to reflect on last weekend's amazing Syracuse-Duke matchup. Sure, the Orange won. But the Blue Devils were still fighting in overtime with their best players on the bench. The Rodney Hood game-winning dunk attempt? The Rash...

  9. Weekend Picks: Tennessee over Kentucky?

    Myron Medcalf

    Well, that didn't go well. North Carolina, why do you consistently confuse me/us? I mean, I had no business picking the Tar Heels to win at Syracuse last weekend. But they've done the unthinkable all season against ranked teams and unranked teams....

  10. Weekend Picks: Iowa over Ohio State?

    Myron Medcalf

    C'mon, Memphis. I never thought Cincy would stomp the Tigers the way it did last weekend. That was my lone blemish. I figured out the rest, though. I have a feeling, however, that I'll be less accurate this weekend. Too many difficult matchu...

  11. Marquette continues to disappoint

    Myron Medcalf

    In October, Big East commissioner Val Ackerman made it clear that she expected the new league to immediately snatch a spot toward the top of the college basketball hierarchy. The conference boss didn't preach a two-year, three-year or five-year visio...

  12. Weekend Picks: Hawkeyes over Badgers?

    Myron Medcalf

    Another mediocre performance last week, when I went 3-2 in my weekend picks. My Villanova-over-Syracuse call looked good until Syracuse put together a 22-0 run that changed everything. And then, Kentucky beat Louisville. I'm still surprised by tha...

  13. Syracuse shows it has heart of a contender

    Myron Medcalf

    Syracuse was down. Way down in its 78-62 win over Villanova on Saturday at the Carrier Dome. Though it was too early to call the game due to early domination, Villanova did not appear to be in any mood to take its foot off the neck of its former Big ...

  14. Weekend picks: Villanova over Syracuse?

    Myron Medcalf

    Well, I went 3-2 again last weekend. I missed Michigan State-Texas, obviously. I thought the Longhorns would thrive on the comforts of its home floor and their growing confidence following a win over North Carolina the previous week. But sometimes, i...

  15. Weekend Picks: Texas over Michigan State?

    Myron Medcalf

    Well, this isn't as bad as I thought it would be. Yet. We're a long way from March. So I'm sure I'll miss a bunch. But in last week's picks, I was accurate on every game except Iowa-Iowa State. That Cyclones-Hawkeyes matchup was one of the best...
