Indiana-UK draws most viewers of opening week NCAA tourney games

Throw Indiana and Kentucky men’s basketball on TV, and people are going to watch. A lot of people. [ MORE: Indiana-UNC preview | @BTNStatsGuys crunch the numbers ] To little surprise, the two powerhouse programs’ East Region quarterfinal game drew the largest audience of all opening weekend NCAA tournament games. A total of 10.5 million people tuned in to Indiana’s 73-67 victory over Kentucky, the programs’ first meeting since the Wildcats topped the Hoosiers, 102-90, in the 2012 NCAA tournament on their way to claiming the NCAA crown.

Sweet 16 preview: No. 5 Maryland vs. No. 1 Kansas

Some in College Park, Maryland, are calling Maryland’s game vs. Kansas the biggest in a generation for the program. Hyperbole? A bit. Still, no matter how you label it, this is a big one for the Terps. [ MORE: View interactive NCAA tourney bracket ] No doubt, great opportunity awaits a Maryland program that in the preseason some were hailing as the best in the nation. That didn’t materialize, as the Terps didn’t even win the Big Ten regular-season crown or get to the league tourney title game. Regardless, Maryland can make amends for any perceived shortcomings during the season

Sweet 16 preview: No. 5 Indiana vs. No. 1 North Carolina

It’s all right there for the taking for Indiana in the East Region: A trip to the Final Four. [ MORE: View interactive NCAA tourney bracket ] But, to get there, the Hoosiers will need to knock off mighty North Carolina, a No. 1 seeded squad that is peaking. The Tar Heels are a talented club that has experience. They won’t flinch or be intimidated. The last time Indiana got to the Sweet 16, in 2013, it fell to Syracuse, 61-50. That was an uber-talented Hoosier squad that was a No. 1 seed and was led by Cody Zeller, Victor

Gene Smith doesn't see Ohio State taking spring practice to Florida

Who knows if college football teams will be permitted to take parts of spring practice to, say, Florida in the future, as Jim Harbaugh and Michigan did earlier this month. [ MORE: Like this post? Check out our full Gone Viral section ] If the rules allow for it, don’t expect Michigan’s fierce rival Ohio State to leave Columbus, Ohio, for spring break. Ohio State AD Gene Smith alluded to this while speaking to the media Tuesday. See his direct quite in the tweet above. Urban Meyer seems to agree, although he did previously seem open to the idea.

Rutgers introduces new men's basketball coach Steve Pikiell

(AP) Steve Pikiell has been hired as Rutgers’ basketball coach after leading Stony Brook to its first NCAA Tournament this season. The university’s Board of Governors on Tuesday approved a five-year, $8 million contract. Pikiell succeeds Eddie Jordan, who was fired after a 7-25 season. The Scarlet Knights have not been to the NCAA Tournament since 1991. They won three games in the Big Ten in the last two years, their only victory this season coming in the regular-season finale. Pikiell won just four games in his first season at Stony Brook in 2005-06. His teams won 20 games in

Big Ten losses to Purdue, Indiana, Maryland and Northwestern — by a combined 15 points — left UW 2-7 in games decided by six points or fewer. “I think we forget about how many close games we were in from early on in the season,” UW assistant coach Lamont Paris said. “We had one-possession games,
