New to basketball from Senegal, Tacko Fall's path took him to six U.S. states. He nearly had to leave the country and had a run-in with the NCAA, but now he's flourishing with the Golden Knights.

Why Indiana is no lock for the tournament

Indiana has been a team of extremes, with big wins (North Carolina and Kansas) and upsets (remember Fort Wayne?). The result could be a spot in the Final Four ... or IU could be left out.

Good luck predicting the Atlantic 10

The Atlantic 10 is almost impossible to figure out. Take Richmond, for example. The Spiders started the season 6-6 and are now 5-0 in conference play.

Oklahoma's Jordan Woodard makes the game tying lay-up in regulation but missed the game winning F.T. In OT Woodard makes the go ahead lay-up two times down the stretch. Love how Woodard moved on after the miss FT. No carryover into OT, no emotion fog in his concentration. Great lesson for young players. Sooners upset no.7 West Virginia in Morgantown

Myron Medcalf ESPN Staff Writer 

Just when you thought you understood the Big 12, Oklahoma goes into Morgantown and beats West Virginia. Once the game entered overtime, the Mountaineers tried to put Lon Kruger's squad away. But Jordan Woodard was never rattled. Huge bucket late. Huge win for Oklahoma. Critical game in Big 12 race.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Florida finished 0-17 from 3. It's the first time since 1992 (and seventh time in program history) the Gators did not record a 3-pointer in a game. Florida is the first Major Conference team to go 0-17 from 3 since since TTU went 0-21 in 2014

John Gasaway ESPN Insider 

Down goes West Virginia, in Morgantown: Oklahoma pulls off the upset in overtime, 89-87. Jordan Woodard hit the game-winner for the Sooners on a runner in the lane with 2.2 seconds left. Last visiting team to win at WVU? Buddy Hield and OU, last February.

Indiana stuns Penn State with 3 at buzzer

After blowing an eight-point lead in just over a minute, James Blackmon Jr. saves Indiana by hitting the buzzer-beater to give the Hoosiers the 78-75 win over Penn State.

John Gasaway ESPN Insider 

James Blackmon just hit a buzzer-beater to save Indiana from a full-blown meltdown at Penn State. The Hoosiers won 78-75, but the Nittany Lions rallied to tie with 4.6 seconds remaining after trailing by 13 with a little more than five minutes left. A loss would have dropped IU to 2-4 in Big Ten play. Could be a very important shot.

There is no timetable for when Trier will return -- if he even returns. Level has decreased, per sources. But still not completely out of his system.

Jonathan Isaac showing the full arsenal. Catch-and-shoot 3 over the top of the defense, rebound at the other end, then a finish and-one through contact. Star.

Jeff Goodman ESPN Insider 

Just filed: Arizona's Trier failed test for performance-enhancing drug, sources told ESPN. Was cleared by NCAA, but drug needs to be completely out of his system before he can play.

John Gasaway ESPN Insider 

At the risk of belaboring the obvious, Notre Dame's shooting just 32 percent on its 2s against Florida State's towering front line. Then again the Irish are hitting 64 percent of their 3s, good enough to make this a one-possession game with 12 minutes left. Let it fly from deep, Coach Brey.

OG coming through for monster dunk

Indiana's OG Anunoby goes right through the lane and throws down the hammer dunk that leaves the rim with hurt feelings.

Oklahoma with a 3 point lead at the half at West Virginia 37-34. Freshman and former ESPN 100 Kameron McGusty has 12 points as they start the second half on ESPN2 in Morgantown. Soph Jamuni McNeace also with 12 points.

John Gasaway ESPN Insider 

Well, this would be a shocker: Oklahoma leads No. 7 West Virginia 37-34 in Morgantown at the half on ESPN2. Kameron McGusty and Jamuni McNease scored 12 points apiece for the Sooners, who gave the ball away a relatively modest seven times in 35 possessions. OU entered the evening 1-4 in Big 12 play.
