Notre Dame up to No. 6 in FoxSports.com Power Rankings

2014-15 College Basketball Power Rankings: Week 12 Sorting through the top of the Power Rankings continues to be an easier task than defining the teams that deserve spots 20 through 25.

Stanford, Georgetown move into FoxSports.com power rankings

  2014-15 College Basketball Power Rankings: Week 11 It has been said that college basketball’s regular season doesn’t count and that games are meaningless unless until the NCAA tournament begins.

Duke takes a tumble in FoxSports.com power rankings

We flirted with total chaos at the top of the rankings last week. Ole Miss put a scare into No. 1 Kentucky but it wasn’t enough to wake up the Wildcats.

UConn freshman Lubin was ready for his big moment

HARTFORD, Conn.- Back in the day, when Hall of Fame coach Jim Calhoun was laying the foundation for a national basketball program at UConn, someone like Lyman DePriest would step up and show the nation how to guard Shaquille O’Neal.

Huskies outlast Cincinnati for 62-56 victory

HARTFORD, Conn. – UConn desperately needed to protect its homecourt and come away with a quality win Saturday. The Huskies did both.

Huskies and Bearcats promise to get defensive

Those filing into the XL Center in Hartford Saturday morning should not arrive with the expectation of viewing anything artistic. And that has nothing to do with those expensive murals that were removed last summer, then relocated at the Hartford Public Library. No, this is all about the style of basketball that will be played […]
