2023 College Basketball News, Rumors and Hot Stories

"USC freshman Bronny James hit a transition 3-pointer, delivered a sensational chase-down block -- that looked very familiar -- and had a steal and a free throw late in regulation during his long-awaited collegiate debut after suffering cardiac arrest less than five months ago. Long Beach State, however, spoiled James' return to the court with an 84-79 upset over USC in overtime at the Galen Center on Sunday. James finished with 4 points, 3 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 steals and 1 block off the bench while playing on a minutes restriction (16 minutes)." -, Dec. 10

"Duke basketball got back in the win column with a win over Charlotte at home after a pair of losses on the road to Arkansas and Georgia Tech. The dominant 80-56 win was a much-needed confidence boost for the No. 22 Blue Devils as they look to close out non-conference play by building some momentum." -, Dec. 9

"USC freshman Bronny James participated in his first full contact practice Thursday, taking the next step toward potentially making his much-anticipated debut Sunday against Long Beach State." -, Dec. 7

"More than a month after his disorderly conduct arrest, Kansas State forward Nae'Qwan Tomlin has been dismissed from the team, Kansas State athletic director Gene Taylor announced in a statement on Wednesday. In late October, Kansas State head coach Jerome Tang announced that Tomlin, who averaged 10.4 PPG and started 36 games last season, had been suspended "for not living up to expectations we require of our players" after his arrest for "disorderly conduct; brawling or fighting" at a local sports bar." -, Dec. 6

"USC freshman Bronny James was a limited participant at practice on Monday and is awaiting clearance for full-contact practice. James, the eldest son of Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James, was cleared by doctors to return to basketball last Thursday, just over four months after he suffered cardiac arrest at a summer workout." -, Dec. 5

"It took less than a month for men's college basketball to go completely haywire. Eight teams in the top 16 of the previous edition of the Power Rankings suffered losses this past week. Two of those squads, Duke and Villanova, lost twice. Included in that group was last week's Nos. 1, 3 and 4. How will all of that impact the rankings? Arizona moving up to No. 1 is the easy part. The Wildcats were No. 2 entering last week and cruised past Colgate in their lone game of the week. Not only are they still unbeaten, they also own a road win against Duke and a neutral-court victory over Michigan State. Both of those wins have lost some of their luster, but Arizona's résumé is still more impressive than those of most of the other unbeaten teams in the sport." -, Dec. 4

"TJ Long hit a catch-and-shoot 3-pointer at the buzzer to tie the game then completed a four-point play to give Vermont a stunning 66-65 win at home over Yale on Saturday night." -, Dec. 3

"Max Klesmit's blazing start put Wisconsin in position to beat Marquette for a third straight season. His teammates picked up the slack from there as the Badgers used their rebounding superiority to defeat the third-ranked Golden Eagles 75-64 on Saturday. Klesmit scored all 21 of his points in the first half and posted his highest point total since transferring from Wofford before the 2022-23 season." - AP, Dec. 2

"Charleston Southern men's basketball coach Barclay Radebaugh stepped down from his position amid his 19th season at the helm, the school said Thursday. In a statement, athletic director Jeff Barber said it was a mutual decision." -, Nov. 30

Nov. 29

"Trevon Brazile had 19 points and 11 rebounds, Khalif Battle scored 21 off the bench and Arkansas held on to beat No. 7 Duke 80-75 on Wednesday night. It was the first win for Arkansas over a ranked ACC team since 1995, according to ESPN Stats & Information research. (The Razorbacks won 75-68 vs. No. 4 North Carolina in the Final Four in 1995.)" -

AP top 25: 1) Purdue, 2) Arizona, 3) Marquette, 4) UConn, 5) Kansas, 6) Houston, 7) Duke, 8) Miami, 9) Baylor, 10) Tennessee

"Purdue is back atop The Associated Press Top 25 men's college basketball poll, right where it spent so much of last season. The Boilermakers ascended to No. 1 on Monday after an impressive run through a loaded field at the Maui Invitational. They beat Gonzaga, Tennessee and Marquette -- three of the top 11 teams in the nation -- in consecutive days, and that was enough to earn 60 of 63 first-place votes from the national panel of Top 25 voters." - AP

"Led by a career-high 29 points from Donovan Clingan, No. 4 UConn cruised to an 84-64 win over New Hampshire on Monday -- setting an NCAA record in the process. The win marked the Huskies' 24th straight nonconference victory by double digits, breaking a tie with 2008-09 North Carolina." -

Nov. 26

"Vanderbilt has suspended Lee Dort after the forward was arrested Sunday on a charge of felony aggravated assault. "We are aware of the matter and have suspended student-athlete Lee Dort from the basketball team pending the outcomes of the university's and the legal system's processes," Vanderbilt spokesman Jacob Bell said in a university statement." -

Nov. 24

"Bronny James was on the court with his No. 23 Southern California teammates for pregame warmups Thursday for the second straight game, although he mostly watched from under the basket, did some rebounding and then took three shots from the corner." - AP

"Zach Edey posted a 28-point, 14-rebound effort en route to leading the No. 2 Purdue Boilermakers men's basketball team to a 78-75 win over the No. 4 Marquette Golden Eagles in the Allstate Maui Invitational Championship on Wednesday." - BleacherReport
