Slamming it home
Indiana's Cody Zeller dunks on Michigan's Mitch McGary on Saturday at Assembly Hall. Zeller led the No. 3 Hoosiers with 19 points and nine rebounds in the 81-73 win over the No. 1 Wolverines. That win ensured Indiana returned to the top spot in Monday's AP Top 25.
Up for grabs

Get. In. That. Hole.
If Seton Hall guard/forward Fuquan Edwin's eyes could talk, they would be giving the ball one heck of a lecture . . . or trying to make one heck of a deal to get it to fall his way. Regardless, his Pirates lost to the Cincinnati Bearcats on Saturday 65-59.
I blocked your face
Saint Louis forward Rob Loe tries to shoot, but gets a face full of palm from Dayton's Jalen Robinson on Saturday. No worries, host Saint Louis easily won 81-52.
Thanks for the memories
Former Arkansas head basketball coach Nolan Richardson (far left) and chancellor David Gearhart view a painting commemoration Richardson during halftime of Saturday's game against Tennessee. Richardson led Arkansas to the three Final Fours as head coach, including 1994, when the Razorbacks won the NCAA championship. On Saturday, host Arkansas beat Tennessee, 73-60.
Former Utah head coach Rick Majerus' sweater is retired to the rafters of the Jon M. Hunstman Center during halftime of Saturday's game against Colorado in Salt Lake City. The coach, who died in December last year, coached Utah for 14 years. His highlight came when he led the Utes to the national championship game in 1998, losing to Kentucky. His best player on that team was Keith Van Horn, whose No. 44 is also retired. Also in this photo is the retired 33 of Vern Gardner, who played in the late 1940s. On Saturday, the Utes beat the Buffaloes, 58-55.
Memphis' D.J. Stephens flies to the basket against Tulsa during the first half of Saturday's home game. The Tigers won 94-64, improving to 7-0 in conference play. Stephens finished with 15 points and 13 rebounds.
What's with all the pink?
Creighton coach Greg McDermott may be sporting a soft color, but he brought his hard edge to the court on Saturday, arguing a call in the first half at home against Bradley. The Bluejays wore pink to raise money to combat cancer, and got their 20th win with a 75-58 victory.
That's how you stop a big
Need to stop a big guy from getting the basket? You can always try clotheslining them in the forehead, as Bradley's Jake Eastman did here against Creighton's Gregory Echenique on Saturday. Creighton won 75-58.
I can't watch
It was a down season for the Auburn football, and the basketball team hasn't been anything to write home about, either. On Saturday, the Tigers were beaten by Missouri 91-77. The loss knocked Auburn to the bottom of the SEC standings — and sent Josh Wallace looking for cover under a towel.
He's gettin' up there
Minnesota forward Rodney Williams Jr. dunks on a breakaway in the second half of Sunday's game against Iowa. The points were big, as the host Gophers beat the Hawkeyes 62-59.
Minnesota center Elliott Eliason blocks a shot by Iowa center Adam Woodbury during the first half Sunday at Williams Arena in Minneapolis, Minn. The Gophers edged the Hawkeyes 62-59.

Two seasons ago, Virginia Commonwealth and coach Shaka Smart shocked the world with a run to the Final Four. Smart is still at VCU, and still winning, as he holds daughter Zora Sanae following the Rams' 81-65 home win over the Fordham Rams on Saturday.
Pain in gain
The Connecticut women's basketball team held off St. John's on Saturday, 71-65 on the road. But the game did not come without a cost, as sophomore guard Brianna Banks played only one minute before spraining her knee and leaving the game for good in the first half.
I can't believe it
No, not that his Aztecs lost at Air Force 70-67 on Saturday (the Falcons have played well in conference). What likely has Jamaal Franklin stunned is that fans storm the court after their team beats San Diego State.
Dog eat latex world
Georgetown mascot Jack pops balloons during a timeout in the second half of Saturday's game against the St. John's Red Storm at Verizon Center in Washington DC. The Hoyas were watching — and learning — as they took a bite of their Big East foe, 68-56.
Connecticut guards (from left) guard R.J. Evans, guard Omar Calhoun and guard Ryan Boatright hold enlarged pictures of themselves for fans before the start of Sunday's game against South Florida.
Throw out the records
South Florida is 10-11 overall, 1-8 in the Big East. Connecticut is 15-5, 5-3 in the Big East — and sports quite the tradition. But don't tell that to the Bulls' Toarlyn Fitzpatrick (No. 32), who sent a shot across the face of the Huskies' Omar Calhoun during the second half Sunday. The game was equally tough, UConn ultimately prevailing in OT, 69-64.
What about us?
When Shabazz Napier shot this free throw with 40 seconds left, his UConn Huskies were tied at home with the lowly South Florida Bulls. He sank the free throw for the lead, but South Florida was game and forced OT before the Huskies ultimately won 69-64. But despite the game very much in the air at the time, the UConn scoreboard operator already their attention on the UConn women's team, and its game Monday night against top-ranked Baylor. So much for home-court advantage.
Yeah, we rule!

Don't look down

I'll take a bucket of thighs
You mean it wasn't Col. Sanders lookalike day in Louisville? Hey, when you beat a ranked conference opponent by 19, I guess you can wear whatever you want.
On the floor

Can I get a do-over?
Marquette head coach Buzz Williams calls out instructions during the second half of Sunday's road game against the Louisville. It was not much use, as the Golden Eagles were run off the floor by the Cardinals, 70-51. And the coaches' suit contest was an even bigger blowout.

In New Orleans, there was a football played indoors Sunday, that ended with some players likely sipping champagne. In Champaign, Ill., on Sunday, there was a basketball game played indoors, but players likely ran for a heater after it was over. Ultimately, the host Illini were left out in the cold, losing a Big Ten matchup with Wisconsin, 74-68.
Was it that bad?
Stanford's Dwight Powell looks like bad things are happening. But this is actually a reaction from him scoring against Oregon State on Sunday. And the Cardinal even won the game, 81-73. Would hate to see what he looks like after a loss.
Good coach, bad coach
Duke Blue Devils head coach Joanne P. McCallie (far right) and assistant coach Al Brown look on during Sunday's game at North Carolina. The result looked like Brown had the right idea, as the Blue Devils easily won, 84-63.
Stuck in the middle
