Arizona head coach Sean Miller reacts after the Wildcats were called for a foul in the second half of an NCAA college basketball game against Clemson at Littlejohn Coliseum in Clemson, S.C. on Saturday, Dec. 8, 2012.
Even with only one good arm, UNLV's Mike Moser (far left) nearly rips the shirt off of teammate Demetris Morant while Daquan Cook looks on as the Rebels celebrate near the end of their game at Cal on Sunday. UNLV won, 76-75, on a last-second shot, but lost top rebounder Moser to a dislocated elbow.
That's more like it
The Rebels manage to keep their clothes on as they walk off the court following Sunday's win. Anthony Marshall (No. 3) had 13 points and fired the potential game-winning shot . . . which Marshall missed, but Quintrell Thomas followed with the game-winning put-back.
More than just his emotions on his sleeves
Milwaukee forward James Haarsma reacts after missing a basket during the second half of Sunday's 84-50 loss to DePaul in Rosemont, Ill.
OK, so Minnesota's Rodney Williams Jr. slams what seems like a meaningless dunk — 2 of his 13 points in a 71-57 win at USC on Saturday night. But the win gave Gophers coach Tubby Smith his 500th career win.
He's the man
Well, one of them anyway. West Virginia's Deniz Kilicli (No. 13) points to Kevin Noreen as they walk off the court following Saturday's dramatic 68-67 win at home over Virginia Tech. But while Noreen did have a double-double (14 points, 12 rebounds), Juwan Staten was the final hero, scoring the game-winner with 3.4 seconds left.
Out of the shadows . . .
Comes the nation's best team, the top-ranked Indiana Hoosiers. On Saturday, poor Central Connecticut State found out firsthand why Indiana has the No. 1 ranking, falling 100-69 in Bloomington. The player whose shadow you see is Victor Oladipo. He finished with 15 points and nine rebounds.
I can't watch
You can't blame Tennessee State's Kellen Thornton for covering his face on Saturday after fouling out against Missouri. The host Tigers (ranked 12th in the nation) struggled in the first half but pulled away in the second half against the visiting Tigers (unranked), winning 68-38 in Columbia, Mo.
When upsets happen ...
The clothes apparently come off in Ypsilanti, Mich., as Eastern Michigan University students rush the court following the Eagles' 47-44 win over Purdue at home Saturday.
The Kansas Jayhawks are ranked ninth in the nation and unbeaten at home. So why all the emotion in the closing moments of a 90-54 win over Colorado at Lawrence, Kan., on Saturday? Well, because little-used Tyler Self, the son of coach of Bill Self, hit his lone shot of the game.
Concentrate . . . concentrate . . .
When you travel to Haas Pavilion to face the Cal Golden Bears, you have to deal with a student section that has some big mouths — and heads, it seems. Alas, UNLV overcame the distractions to beat the Bears 76-75 on Sunday.

No whammies! No whammies!
The Gonzaga faithful tried nearly everything they could on Saturday to hold off Brandon Paul and his 13th-ranked Illinois Fighting Illini, but ultimately their beloved and 10th-ranked Bulldogs fell in Spokane, Wash., 85-74.
Flexing the muscle
Clemson guard Adonis Filer celebrates during Saturday's second half against Arizona at J.C. Littlejohn Coliseum in Clemson, SC. The No. 8 Wildcats turned out to be the stronger team, however, using a late run to take down the Tigers, 66-54.
Mom must be proud
Hey, students have to blow off steam somehow. Might as well do it dressed up as a do-it-yourself superhero at a basketball game on a Saturday night. Too bad this guy's Gonzaga Bulldogs didn't play with the same passion.
Gonna get you fired up
