It’s high time we checked in on the wonderful world of college basketball with March Madness just weeks away and major story lines forming across the country as we lead up to sport’s most exciting tournament.

Today we’re going to touch on a few highlights from an exciting weekend of college hoops action. As always, for the latest info, check the NCAA basketball lines.

A couple of weeks ago, the Arizona State Sun Devils were off the radar in terms of a spot in the tourney, but after beating arch-rival Arizona on Friday, they’ve now won six of their past seven to build their case for a bid. ASU point guard Jahii Carson — a projected mid-second round pick in this year’s NBA draft — had a breakaway dunk to ice the game in double overtime. The durable guard shook off a poor shooting effort in his last game to score 17 points with six dimes. At times on Friday, Carson was as much lucky as he was good (check out the video below to see the prayer shot he tossed up midway through the second half).

The Florida Gators continue to impress, walking into Kentucky Saturday and battling from behind to earn a 69-59 win for their 17th straight victory. Senior guard Scottie Wilbekin came up huge for the Gators, scoring a career-high 23 points and hitting 11-of-12 from the charity stripe, including five massive freebies in the dying moments to keep Florida unbeaten since early December. He was suspended to begin the season, but since his return has done a much better job of generating points from the free throw line.

Nebraska took out No. 9 Michigan State 60-51 on Saturday to reach the .500 mark in conference play for the first time since it joined the Big Ten. As usual, the Cornhuskers were led by projected late-first rounder Terran Petteway (23 points), but sophomore guard Shavon Shields pitched in with a surprising eight boards while adding seven points, two assists, a steal and no turnovers. Shields was 0-for-4 from beyond the arc, but he’s already sunk more treys this season than he did as a freshman.

Speaking of upsets, how about No. 18 Creighton hammering No. 6 Villanova 101-80 on Sunday? The Bluejays have now bunny hopped the Wildcats to take over first place in the Big East. Creighton senior forward Doug McDermott — a projected lottery pick — continued to put up big numbers as he has his entire career. He matched his season-best with 39 points — enough to pass the legendary Larry Bird for 13th place in all-time Division I scoring. McDermott needs only nine points in his next outing to match Tyler Hansbrough for 12th place all-time.

Well, that’s a wrap for now, Keep checking this space for updates as we head towards the Final Four.

The Wire Troll: Nick Calathes is a Hidden Gem

February 15, 2014 | by Bob Raymond | Comments (0)
If you’re in keeper league, this is an urgent alert to get McCollum on your team. He was the star of the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas after being the 10th overall pick by Portand last year. Unfortunately for McCollum, he suffered a broken foot and missed the first 36 games of his career. Now that he’s finding his legs and the nuances of the NBA, he’s putting up decent Fantasy numbers as of late. Playing time will likely hinder McCollum from being a major factor the remainder of the way but watch out in future seasons.

The Wire Troll: Tony Wroten Getting Burn in Philly

February 8, 2014 | by Bob Raymond | Comments Comments Off
Bass is certainly not known for statistical “consistency,” but he’s worth considering now that he has regained a spot in the Celtics starting unit. Two of his last three games have been solid, so Fantasy teams in need of points, rebounds and some blocks should take notice.

The Wire Troll: DeMarre Carroll Doing it All in Atlanta

February 1, 2014 | by Bob Raymond | Comments (0)
Waiters was the fourth overall pick in the 2012 draft and is finally starting to show the offensive consistency that he hinted at in the Summer League. He has scored 21 points in each of his last two games, totaling five treys and four steals in the two games. Slowly but surely Waiters has improved his passing skills leading to increased assist totals.

The Wire Troll: Marcus Thornton Returns to Relevance

January 25, 2014 | by Bob Raymond | Comments Comments Off
Stuckey started the season on fire then was victimized by a nagging shoulder ailment that affected his production. Now fully healthy, he is lighting up the scoreboard as the Pistons’ “instant offense” off the bench. Over his last five contests, Stuckey is averaging 20 points and shooting over 50 per cent from the field. At 31 per cent ownership (ESPN leagues), he is definitely a bargain.
