Jimmer Fredette scored 17 points and Luke Babbitt added 15 to lead the New Orleans Pelicans to a 98-86 victory over the Miami Heat on Saturday night in the preseason opener for both teams.
FIU weathered the first punch, then a second, and found itself only down by five points late in the first half against the defending national champions.
The preseason No. 2 team finishes 35-5 and wins 16 in a row to close the season, culminating with a national championship. No dominant team in college basketball this year?
The season that none of us could predict is set to give us a title game that none of us will forget.
Russ Smith, nicknamed ‘Russdiculous’ for his frenetic style of play, has been simply wonderful in the tournament.
The Louisville Cardinals put on a defensive clinic, shutting down Colorado State and dominated the Rams 82-56.
Russ Smith last spoke with his former high school coach, Jack Curran, less than three weeks ago. They talked about how well Smith had been playing for Louisville this season.
