College Hoops Morning Recap

  • It didn't take very long to see a big upset in the Big East tourney. Capped off by a boneheaded inbounds pass from Maalik Wayns, 'Nova's tailspin hit another level yesterday. Just for kicks: no NCAA Tournament team has ever gone dancing after losing their final five games. (The Nova Blog)

  • Overtime from Seton Hall-Rutgers gave fans a taste of things to come. It wasn't pretty, but first-year RU coach Mike Rice doesn't care much for formalities. "It was beautiful to me," Rice said. "Any win is a work of art." (New York Times)

  • Rightfully so, Oakland coach Greg Kampe thinks he has the best team of his career. "We're so talented offensively. Last year we won with our defense. This year we can score in so many ways. This team can play defense. It's just that the pace of the game is so fast sometimes they lax a little on the defensive end." (Detroit News)

  • We implore you to watch the final sequence of last night's Sun Belt championship game. Time ticking away, Little-Rock's Solomon Bozeman went for the jugular. (YouTube)

  • Montana scored a whopping 12 first-half points against Weber State and somehow managed to win by 17. Consider: Weber opened the night with an awful seven-plus minute scoring drought, and then ended it in exactly the same fashion. And of course, the Wildcats made just 21.4% from the field as a team and bricked 15 consecutive shots down the stretch. Yep, that'll do it. (Deseret News)
