NCAA basketball coaches among 10 charged with fraud, corruption

Four assistant basketball coaches from Arizona, Auburn, Oklahoma State and Southern California were charged Tuesday morning in a federal corruption investigation, and that might only be the tip of the iceberg in a three-year FBI probe that focused on coaches being paid tens of thousands of dollars to steer NBA-bound players toward sports agents, financial advisers and apparel companies.

Rick Pitino couldn't avoid trouble forever

Rick Pitino turned out to be a colossal waste of talent. Forced out by Louisville on Wednesday, Pitino will not be remembered as a coach who made regular appearances in the Final Four.

He will be remembered as the architect of a morally bankrupt program, and as a complete disgrace to his profession.

Loyola-Chicago recalls 1963 champions as it pulls off buzzer-beater win

The difference between Donte Ingram etching himself a place in NCAA tournament lore came down to who got the rebound on a missed free throw.

The Loyola-Chicago guard's buzzer-beating 3-pointer from the March Madness logo on Thursday sent the 11th-seeded Ramblers to the second round with a 64-62 win over sixth-seeded Miami in the South Region. It was kick-started by a rebound by guard Ben Richardson and an outlet to guard Marques Townes.

How one man's Hollywood flop set off NCAA basketball's biggest scandal

The biggest scandal to ever rock college basketball traces its beginnings to a low-budget, sci-fi horror flick that tanked at the box office in 2013.

"A Resurrection" starred B-list celebrities Mischa Barton and the late Michael Clarke Duncan and was about a boy named Eli who wanted to avenge his brother's death. Never saw it? Well, not many did. And because of that, the college basketball world has been turned upside down.

That Loyola-Chicago vs Miami game yesterday was a thing of beauty. Both teams played cleanly, passed the ball well, had a thrilling finish.

VA Tech losing hurt my bracket. I should have known that Buzz Williams would let me down again (he coached at my alma mater before he abruptly left for a lower paying job).

Unlikely buzzer-beating shot brings unlikely title for Muffet McGraw's resilient Fighting Irish

After a season in which much of what was talked and written about Notre Dame's women's basketball team involved injury misfortune, look at who was the last team left standing.

The Irish won the program's second NCAA title with a 61-58 victory over fellow No. 1 seed Mississippi State on Sunday, an Easter to remember for coach Muffet McGraw, whose 800th victory at the school was one of her sweetest.
