These players, including Duke super freshman Zion Williamson, are coming to a college basketball highlight reel soon.
- UNC-Michigan highlights ACC/Big Ten clashes
- Syracuse bolstered by return of Battle
- Syracuse's Carrier Dome getting new roof, AC
- Forward Moyer transfers to Vanderbilt from Syracuse
The latest batch of college stars heard their names called in the NBA draft. Who will replace them at the nation's top programs?
Kentucky's late addition of Reid Travis forced us to adjust our 2018-19 rankings. There's no denying that the Stanford graduate transfer puts the Wildcats over the top.
Can Michigan State contend with a team built around Nick Ward? How will Mike Krzyzewski utilize Zion Williamson? Each Top 25 team has a pressing question to answer this summer.
Michigan, the 2017-18 national runner-up, will host North Carolina on Nov. 28 as part of the ACC/Big Ten Challenge. Other matchups include Michigan State at Louisville and Indiana at Duke on Nov. 27.
The 2018-19 picture is coming into clear view after the NBA draft early-entry deadline. The Jayhawks hold firm at the top spot, while Nevada rose higher in the top 10.
Considered a second-round pick by most NBA executives, Syracuse wing Tyus Battle has decided to withdraw from the NBA draft and return to school for his junior season.
The Carrier Dome at Syracuse is getting a $118 million makeover that will include a new fixed roof and air conditioning.
Forward Matthew Moyer has transferred to Vanderbilt after spending the first two years of his college career at Syracuse.
The deadline for early entrants to declare for the NBA draft has passed, so it's time to re-evaluate the early top 25 for 2018-19. With so many players testing the waters yet not signing with an agent, it's more art than science.
Syracuse guard/forward Tyus Battle has declared for the NBA draft without hiring an agent, the school announced Friday.
Villanova reigns as national champion. How does the field stack up for next season? Here's your first look at the best of the best for next season.
Headlined by the 1972 UCLA Bruins, 80 teams have cut down the nets at an NCAA tournament. Villanova became the latest, winning its second title in three years. Where does this triumph rank all time?
Top-10 prospect Darius Bazley is skipping college and plans to play in the NBA G League, he told Yahoo! Sports on Thursday afternoon.
Syracuse forward Matthew Moyer, who started 20 games this season as a redshirt freshman before an injury curtailed his playing time, says he's transferring.
Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer
Syracuse sophomore Matthew Moyer announces he's transferring. Averaged 3.2 points and 3.4 rebounds this season. Should have three years of eligibility after redshirting last year.
Duke found a way to crack Syracuse's zone defense, and now the Blue Devils are back in the Elite Eight for the first time since the 2015 team won it all.
Syracuse will be an intriguing team next season and should be trending up.
Mitch Sherman ESPN Staff Writer
No. 2 seed Duke survives a nail-biter over Syracuse, 69-65, in the second Midwest Region semifinal, earning a date with top seed Kansas on Sunday in Omaha for a spot in the Final Four. Freshman Marvin Bagley III scored 22 and grabbed 12 boards for the Blue Devils. The Elite Eight matchup will mark the first game between KU and Duke since 2013 and a rematch of the 1991 championship game, won by Mike Krzyzewski's Hurley-Hill-Laettner group.
Mitch Sherman ESPN Staff Writer
It's almost like Syracuse and Duke know each other well. Aside from the zone-defense, like-mindedness of the Jim Boeheim and Mike Krzyzewski systems this year, the ACC rivals played less than a month ago ahead of this Sweet 16 matchup in Omaha -- which the Blue Devils lead 34-27 at the half. Both teams have attacked the other's zone, getting inside regularly to result in high-percentage shots. As expected, though, points remain at a premium after the Devils' 60-44 win in the previous meeting.
No. 1 seeds Kansas and Villanova try to advance to the Elite Eight against No. 5 seeds in their Sweet 16 matchups Friday night.
Paul Sabin ESPN Analytics
Villanova won the NCAA tournament as an 8 seed in 1985, the lowest seed to win it all. Between Florida State, Kansas State, Loyola, and Syracuse there is now a 7 percent chance of a 9 or 11 seed winning it all this year (per espn.com/bpi).
