Scuffle leads to invisible handshakes

Flaring tempers between Rider and Siena results in an unusual postgame handshake line.


Badgers sneak past Michigan with late run

Bronson Koenig put No. 17 Wisconsin in front for good with this 3-pointer, which was part of a 15-0 run that erased a 6-point deficit and spurred the Badgers to a 68-64 win.

Rider coach Kevin Baggett told ESPN on why he pulled his team off court: "I decided to not shake hands because I didn't want anything to escalate again between the teams. That's my prerogative to protect my team whether anyone else thinks it's good sportsmanship or not."  Siena coach Jimmy Patsos responded: "That's a pretty good reason," Patsos said. "I like Kevin a lot, and respect his decision."

Was just about to comment on Michigan's inspired 3pt defense just as D'Mitrik Trice made one. Wisconsin still just shooting 3-13 from 3. The Wolverines rank 350(!) in Division I allowing opponents to shoot 43 percent from behind the arc.

Badgers getting best of defensive battle

Neither Wisconsin nor Michigan has been able to crack 40 percent shooting from the field, but Vitto Brown's 9 points are a big part of why the 17th-ranked Badgers lead 26-21 at half.

Baylor's Jonathan Motley had the first 30-point 20-rebound game in Big 12 play since Blake Griffin for Oklahoma in 2009 (against Texas Tech). The only others to do that in Big 12 play are Mario Boggan for Oklahoma State and Kevin Durant for Texas, both in 2007.

After getting a technical for hanging in the rim, Malik Monk sure let go of it fast on lob dunk to put Kentucky back up by 10 with 6:35 left

Got to give the Bulldogs credit, the game could have been over when Kentucky grabbed leads of 17 & 18 at separate points but Mississippi State keeps fighting back

Malik Monk slams, gets T'd up

Kentucky freshman Malik Monk finished this alley-oop with flair -- apparently a bit too much for the officials, who called him for a technical foul.

Mississippi State season high for turnovers is 17 vs Oregon State. Bulldogs already have 11 at half vs Kentucky. That breaks down to 28% of their possessions. They entered the game with a turnover percentage of 17.

Looks like we're at the part of the season where everyone needs a sportsmanship refresher: Mississippi State's Aric Holman with immature move throwing ball at DeAaron Fox

Ankle breaker part of Baylor surge

The 6th-ranked Bears started sloppy versus Texas (7-10), but they gained a 38-31 halftime lead. Al Freeman provided the highlight of the half with an ankle-breaking 3-pointer.
