Senior basketball writer Jeff garbage -- dug the pac ten Arizona heating up in the desert they've won seven straight games including a big one over -- LA. The Arizona looked like a team that's going to make it to the NCAA tournament. Absolutely some -- -- they -- unless they really faltered down the stretch I think they're gonna extend their. Current streak of incredibly term turn red appearances to 25. And now you gotta give rust panel agree -- ever done a great job with your coach would all the adversity. They're not it you have two posts in Jordan known -- spot in your spot. They don't have a lot of depth than the one guy who's really stepped up -- -- -- and the veteran point guard who a lot of people didn't think was good enough he's been you to lately and right now yeah I'd say they're pretty much a -- NCAA tournament team that wanted to don't really out completely. -- on the stretcher. Let's talk about and stellar play in the big twelve Missouri is one -- -- last ten games how good is Mike Anderson's team. Well I mean epic -- warping the other two guys that came that can really play. Veterans to mark Carroll Leo Lyons. And then a bunch of good complementary guys including some young guys know market and then. -- English. What they do -- -- what Mike Anderson needs to do we did -- UH -- if you need to step. He needs to change I think and drop the press -- wrong and and she didn't score. That we gala and now he's going deep. And they're talking to play against because they're out but it is because of their depth. Then they're really effect. Jeff as we get closer to the -- at wall trying to figure out who's going to be part of the field of sixty by have you had a chance to DL the election process work. What did you learn. Well I learned that certainly did straining to be an -- just awarded a -- for five days like these guys. -- you -- -- do you have a little more sympathy for him and I didn't about. But the biggest thing I learned. Looking at the process looking at all the teams with the numbers attached although mark PI isn't everything you can imagine a forty yard three computers print. Is that there's no disparity between the fifth seeds in the twelfth -- this year. You know you do a lot of -- -- And and the other thing is there's not going to be a ton of mid major -- out large both teams you know just not gonna work out pal waiting to this year. Jeff thank Eddie and I it's much more would Jeff coming up later in the -- right now let's look back at our he's. Syracuse and Georgetown battling up the film's second half Jonny Flynn driving baseline he gets the bucket and the foul he's pumped up -- former orange star Donte Greene. But -- less than two minutes ago the hoyas came back first DaJuan Summers buries a three from the top of the key that Chris Wright hits a three from the wing moments later Georgetown would this deal Austin Freeman puts it in hoyas within two. Under a minute ago George -- complete the comeback right nails the deep three deciding game five alleged overtime. But it overtime sure he shut the door on the hoyas Paul Harris plays eventual wide open -- even -- pretty easy -- Syracuse held on to win. 98 people. Number twenty Purdue on the road against the Hawkeyes let's pick it -- in the second half game -- until he needs one more scores on the baseline drive he's just with sixteen points. -- guys keep fighting. From the boiler makers attitude -- well down the stretch. He says grants trained afraid that Juwan Johnson knocked down belonged to -- comes away with a 4945. Win for the. You battled back in the second match. Garrett about why this is why they may even win. Yeah we're able to pull out hustled and ugly but I think both things that good efforts on the defensive -- we could knock down some shots got some nice looks in the second half. Especially Labonte made the win and our guys whether it goes down the stretch. You tell me before the game we knew it wasn't getting easy. Despite their injuries. You guys grinding it out while -- Make every you find this bit of like. Okay I'll watch -- -- as they did you know it. We don't take Kelly was good tonight I'm not quite at a very very high level. Come on guys that makes shots but -- to give credit Iowa losing Jeff Peterson may have come out here and play it. And I grind it out put themselves in position to win you know maybe doesn't -- what matters a great job. Nittany Lions at home taking on the go first pick it up in the second half Taylor battle takes his defender off the dribble gets left to go plus the foul Penn State led by -- Minnesota battled back freshman from devote Johnson hit back to back three time again the 48 he finished with a game like 23 point. But not everything would go right for Joe -- with a minute left battles -- as a freshman and make a shot. Battle went for 21 and this one from Penn State won 6863. Pac ten action now organ of Washington first cap Huskies back -- -- setting the tone early in transition Isiah Thomas as a between the legs above gets pushed around who just didn't get men -- -- victory. Then Thomas drive to what three defenders for the bucket plus the foul he had 24 point done again played first definite steal the lazy bad throws it down. Washington was rolling leading by 24 at the break. Check it out again and again from long -- Huskies -- 1384. Salad staff for getting together in the basketball big game first at -- good with the three ball cardinal led by twenty to a one voice. Check it out Landry Fields forced to pick and roll pretty easy one handed jam. Given up 55 foot scalp fought back Jerome Randle knocking down the huge three pointer then random it's a layup off -- -- football. Cal rallies to win it all 8275. Oregon State visiting Washington State first after a result of good start -- polling five Marcus capers and huge slam. Taylor Rogers -- with a past DiPietro cast so he's planted doubts Cougars led by while would have tied. Check it out Calvin -- got to go first because backdoor lay visited for -- -- aims and fires off to a three and knock it down from the top of the California State rallies to win 5452. In other action Oklahoma won its thirteenth straight game overall behind a monster game I think Griffin going for a career high forty points at 23 rebounds his -- second double double the year this one. Coming in 9574. Win over Texas Tech. The sooners' 11 start in the big twelve matching the best start since. 19841985. -- after the game all the conversation was about -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Casually mentioned earlier Missouri's playing outstanding basketball left. Especially in the second half of games the Tigers scored 45 points in the final twenty minutes against Nebraska cruising to -- big twelve victory. Sadly the 47 reserve Matt Lawrence at thirteen points -- -- -- -- seventeen straight game and all well that's old has more on the way. Nebraska one of only two teams so far this season to beat number seventeen Missouri in big twelve play. Was hanging around once again and Missouri now on Saturday afternoon Missouri only led 25 and nineteen. At halftime but then the Tigers come back with a huge second half they outscored Nebraska 45 to 28. In the second half and they go onto in my final score of seven. To 47. And the fans feel the love here on Valentine's Day is as it is they're 22 win. Moving along layups that really could've got an opportunity you to our dirty sense but always if there's an that you want to win you won't be that certain about Vegas to wear and tear. I think it almost seems when you come out of the parts is going to be strong market towards the end Nebraska -- -- -- -- Our fans are coming out now they're doing great job of -- and we're already go -- trying to go out there and get it you know do their best -- -- -- -- fans and sometimes -- at the opposite -- trying to get it so hard and you know doesn't come so we just got to go out there noted in the second half. And what does -- know what. But the game come to us. Colleges don't listen to keep -- sandy my and he tells us come out there any of the games -- -- they get the crowd into his -- come. With that we had to put more pressure on you know and outside the game we had to get get the run and -- -- got the game going. So the Tigers are now twenty -- -- in four overall and nine into in the big twelve they'll have a week off before playing at Colorado. Next Saturday for now from Missouri and I'm not sold of -- got that. For foxsports.com. Coming up will preview the week ahead in college basketball we Jeff -- stay with us hoops -- rolls on after the -- More guys. Welcome back to hoops is -- I'm Bryan Webber coming up LA issue head Coach Trent Johnson will join us but first let's welcome back foxsports.com senior basketball writer Jeff Goodman Jeff I you know one. Underground leader or I'm doing well a big key battles on tap for Wednesday as Providence head to Louisville do you think the fires could surprise them both and take this morning Kentucky. I don't want I think probably dried out they desperately need this -- I mean if you. You're looking good -- -- -- game against a top ten teams. They don't have it yet that they get it I think -- in the may expert NCAA tournament appearance but right now. I did don't think this team this stuff up to go on the road and then be Rick pitino's team. Okay out Thursday Washington can make their pac ten title dreams more of a reality with a sweep of the UCLA do you think they can wait and Westwood. You know I think this is another couple I loved the job that -- -- -- dumb luck you've this year. I do regard the veteran guard -- -- in the freshman Isaiah Thomas the other key is really. What did he get the ball -- job -- because I'm not -- Youkilis has any sort of answer. You know it is for the local guy that can -- and you know -- boy has been better. But right now that you -- team does not. You know do it doesn't look like a pack and title club but it's -- -- -- -- -- And dollar quality -- for you LA we have a mid major matchup on parity Davidson take -- butler hoping that Stephan curry will be healthy enough to play. Daily needs this one more than butler does what you take on the game. Yeah I just got done kimbo or you know -- weekends. And Bob prodded they -- great you know they got a freshman Gordon he ordered terrific combat power. Undersized post who are there walk the -- one on Sunday. And -- -- not really don't have nearly as much digging through this bracket buster size Davidson of Davidson team on the bubble. And step -- told me earlier today that he's got up. He's going to try to play this week. Mid week against the Citadel. So he should be five -- the spot overdue but I think Davidson instead Paterno being needed one account as you're. They're marketing community public -- Now we're pleased to be joined by LSU head Coach Trent Johnson tried thanks for taking the time your first season of Baton Rouge killing better than most expected you currently atop the he he. How did you turn things around so quickly. Well he could conclude your clothes here in the program goes from really really good people. Been warned to grow to win. -- -- this tournament have a commitment to defend LeBron couldn't turn the ball. -- -- millions his marriage to look into that point Clint Kriewaldt. How do you notice any big differences between coaching in the pac ten and yet he day. The sports world. Different suits. You know war veteran. The poor and desperate for home -- from twelve to cool their -- but the ball but the ball on. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- The tour no and so I -- it pretty much Christine Marshall will. Football aloft we are -- or Martin people where both of those people. Senior guard Marcus Thornton has put together some strong performance this year bought other any aspect on his game you like the more guys. It looked all through been through Portland to complete -- popular. You look at democracy mumbled should pursue eventually brought home this is eternal word shall in the market and probably before portion in my mind. Thorough warm bird -- goes in the country it's pretty obvious that. You know he can get twenty point win we're confident that commitment could betraying his commitment to -- -- -- complete corner in the shorter term through two of -- -- pertinent question. Just like today's a damper your team is really hitting the boards well is rebounding the key for your squat. Well to control lot of good that we have to rebound -- -- -- transition opportunities trooper opponent. I would never do a good job -- -- during the ball -- you can walk -- the -- no word about. I'm only on the kid who's capable in this corner now they're important Kraft should also. They'll be good for the future for a woman to computer world and the transition opportune power America could -- little production to compete. And when you should mention. We are celebrating Black History Month -- you are the first African American head coach of the man he would LA -- does that mean a lot deal. Almost every significant moment and then -- through metro blue line people -- certainly a -- to be put them all. What reluctantly looked. He doesn't own forward pervert reduction bolted. But don't mind being deployed in the are important it and can be up to go long term life you know Bob -- The Warren moon and there were some change now and Romo maturity there and you're going into the prove to people American contender quality education. And -- religion -- possible good production Balkan. For the global more important he's good numbers in the future we're smart guy and girl should go through a lot of people that people probably prepared to work harder -- popped up. Trent thank you best of luck for the rest of the season now it's time to hand out our weekly awards let's start with the hoops hysteria started the week although that Oklahoma big man Blake Griffin. He could be the national player of the year. I he was dialed in against the red Raiders forty point 13 rebounds in nearly 31 minutes joining Wayman Tisdale and Albert Adams is the only Oklahoma players to go for. Forty and twenty in the game it was -- 22 double double of the season a school record. And the out standing honor of -- of the week goes to UCLA freshman drew holiday. And the Bruins back to back law as holiday accounted for six points on three of thirteen shooting committing seven turnovers. That two law as mark UCLA's first losing streak dropping back to back games in March of 2007. Much more on the way including the look of one of the best players in the country you've probably don't know about hoops hysteria continues right after this. Welcome back to who is -- I'm Bryan Webber coming up Jeff Goodman will rejoin us to break down a top five teams in college basketball. What an up and down year for Duke many pundits have critic does the Blue Devils game for the reliance in the three point shot we Astro who analyst mark is John and Chris take our coach k's critic. Titus Marcus Johnson and the guy I'm the last person in the world a -- rag on coach cable a lot of people have talked about Duke. And their propensity to shoot too many three point shots and a lot of people disagree with at all its velocity. I don't know you look at the numbers from last year five of their six -- three point shooters some last year. Question of basketball just about the same a little lower than last season Greg Paulus is at the major drop off 40% to about 31%. Joe Henderson the major turnaround that you understood the 40% this season. But this just a personality of Duke basketball this is the way this team is constructed is the way their offense has been geared. To get them open shots from the perimeter they don't need to stop shooting the long ball they need better or more consistent play from a point guard position. Nolan Smith eleven -- his first seven ACC games not going to get to denigrate policies taken its place in the starting lineup this Duke need to stop jacking up three's no. That would do these two do get more consistent plate plate tougher John sheriffs get a better -- get to the three -- But I love coach K eleven last week I think he stays with this game plan and in the in. Is going to be beneficial to him. Unlike Duke's big men and a -- John Bryant -- -- -- time in the paint the Broncos senior averaging eighteen point thirteen rebounds a game box for dot com caught up with big -- -- talk about his. -- your camp and how he's developed into one of the country's -- -- Tomorrow have to check -- disputed began the middle and try to be senator -- and try to disputed dominant force in the middle. And I think that's. Who I've modeled after the M. And I have a little more touch I would say -- single little. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Okay -- of them -- advantage. Hutchinson Seattle look to see what I can do against him and you got to the got to defeat that -- to the shop fixing this. -- and then Muslims could use a lot taller and McKnight is there's not a Tedy has been so -- drugs. About seventy pounds since I've been here stands. That's all just. Dedication. Meaning right then. Just working out all the time and from graduating at this quarter and pretty much the entire spring time instead of taking classes what Tony says -- dirt. I'm just going to be working out prior to that there -- times a day with their strength and conditioning coach and probably with -- best -- turner. And going to different campuses -- the flu season where can go after this year. Sumo Digital's homes mantra that I have nice clothes and some. Very listened to and he knew coach -- in we're we're big man. There's also close to home and its. Situation for me it was a great academic scores tomorrow more and it's. It really is really on the road it's on its own little world and it's it's a great -- ago. Let's bring in foxsports.com. Senior basketball writer Jeff Goodman is time for good in the top five Jeff let's count on -- backwards starting at number of 540 you have. I'm ignored Michigan State you know and -- -- right now marijuana -- -- -- stuff -- So why you got to do got to go to Michigan gave former met this. Largely because of the schedule -- play. This season but I feet under after dropping down. But it is still done enough to warrant being there -- popular -- a new team and number five have a number four. A group that would -- spurred rare. You know of the toughness. The fact that they have shared -- extremely well in the bigs he's still ball. God how I just love the way you look bad shield them from playing at a point guard spot number three comes to us on the big twelfth. Yeah governor how many people called it their way grip -- would they mark -- game over the weekend. Obviously he has done that before it comes down Austin -- -- forty yards and scored -- shows that they've been pretty consistent or. In the big twelve to kind of turn it up in. Still wanted to continue to play well I think they'll stay in the top spot. Let's shine the spotlight on number hill. Yet North Carolina. That I had a pig quote victory obviously on Sunday night against Miami. On the road. In the when you do. So why I think there's currently on the right decision over did last week you got was number one I'm guessing they're still number one. Remember Warren and regime could be continued to improve -- you know they lose Jerome Dyson and now will believe. You know certainly a lot. But I think we can overcome I think you know you're gonna look for Campbell walker the freshman point guard to come and get more minutes encourage Austrian veteran guard. -- did you -- been nearly as much as other people there. Okay Jeff thanks very much you can read all of Jeff outstanding columns a box for dot com right now let's flashback and take a look at some of the top plays of the week. That'll do it for this week's edition of -- a -- for all your basketball need keep a log on the box board dot com we say good -- would this week by -- the world of college cheerleading. I'm Bryan Webber will -- -- Yeah. The yeah. Yeah.
