TALE OF THE TAPE

Sports

  1. Rhode Island v Butler Brooklyn Hoops Winter Festival
    Bulldogs Look To Bounce Back: #11 Butler At Fordham

    Butler’s 12-game home win streak came to an end on Wednesday in a surprise loss to Charlotte. Brad Stevens is a master game-planner, and he should have a better idea of how to manage without his starting center now that his team has played a game without him.

  2. Cincinnati v Syracuse Auburn v Seton Hall
    Orange Look To Rebound: #6 Syracuse At Seton Hall

    Syracuse lost to Connecticut on Wednesday, moving them into a three-way tie for first in the Big East. Jim Boeheim will try to get his team refocused and continue to work James Southerland back into the mix.

  3. North Carolina v Duke Maryland v Duke
    ACC Action: #2 Duke At Maryland

    Duke took control in the second half on Wednesday to beat North Carolina, a nice birthday present for Mike Krzyzewski, who turned 66. Now he will get his team refocused to play another rival.

  4. Connecticut v Pittsburgh Marquette Golden Eagles v Florida Gators
    Big East Battle: #16 Pittsburgh At #18 Marquette

    After a weak nonconference slate, Pitt started 1-3 in the Big East. Jamie Dixon’s squad is 7-1 since and has a week to prepare for Marquette.

  5. SEC Basketball Tournament - First Round NCAA Basketball Tournament - Virginia v Florida
    Bulldogs Try Not To Get Chomped In The Swamp: Mississippi State At #2 Florida

    Rick Ray is in his first year as a head coach. He was most recently an assistant at Clemson. He inherited a team that returned just two contributors from a group that greatly underachieved last year.

  6. Kansas v West Virginia Texas A&M Aggies v Oklahoma Sooners
    Tornado Alley Showdown: #5 Kansas At Oklahoma

    Bill Self will try to do something on Saturday he hasn’t had to do in 264 games, dating back to January 2006: stop a losing streak. The Jayhawks’ streak of not losing two in a row came to an end on Wednesday when they were shocked—an understatement—by TCU.
