Brown: LSU's Ben Simmons could stand to be more selfish

Ben Simmons had another double-double in LSU's overtime loss to NC State. But with only four points, it's clear the star freshman hasn't quite figured out how to balance looking for his shot with setting up his teammates.

Bilas: The new rules are helping foster upsets

The accepted thought was that college hoops' new rules would only help the big programs, make the rich richer. It's actually worked the other way, setting up more upsets by the little guys.

On the Quad: 5-foot-9 and standing tall

College basketball is not being dominated by the big guys. All you need to do is take a look at this list of little guys. Don't underestimate them.


Syracuse beats UConn to stay unbeaten

Syracuse hands No. 18 Connecticut its first loss of the season as the Orange improve to 5-0 on the season with a 79-76 victory.


Michigan State taking control early

MSU's Matt Costello showed off some pretty footwork in the post for the reverse slam on ESPN2.

Stanford attempting a comeback on ESPN2

Stanford's Reid Travis stuck with it and got the bucket under the hoop, and the Cardinal have cut No. 8 Villanova's lead down to single digits with under 6 minutes left.


This guy's hat game is strong

A Florida fan brought his Thanksgiving best to the game -- and so did the woman next to him.


Villanova cruising against Stanford

No. 8 Villanova is taking what it wants against Stanford, like this Kris Jenkins 3-pointer. Nova is up double digits midway through the second half on ESPN2.


This is what it looks like to dunk at 7-6

UC Irvine's Mamadou Ndiaye doesn't have to jump high off the court to dunk the ball.


Shockers miss at buzzer, fall to USC

Lydon's block capitalizes performance

Syracuse's Tyler Lydon played a huge role off the bench with 16 points, 12 rebounds and this block on Rodney Purvis to help his team beat No. 18 UConn in the Battle 4 Atlantis semifinal.


Purvis dialing it up to catch Cuse

Well now. That was an NCAA type game. Aggies defended Kyle Wiltjer and Zags well on last possession. Expect Texas A&M to be a major factor all season. Daniel House and Co. are going to be tough to matchup with during the season.

Syracuse's Jim Boeheim was high on Tyler Lydon in preseason. Easy to see why. He should be a star for Orange.
