Video: Tour Penn State's Pegula Ice Arena

You’ve heard of Happy Valley. Wait until you see Hockey Valley. Penn State’s new hockey home, Pegula Ice Arena, is a sight to behold.

Traevon Jackson game-winner: Good or no good?

Traevon Jackson beat the shot clock in the final seconds to lift Wisconsin past No. 14 Minnesota on Saturday. Or did he? This one was about as close as buzzer-beaters come. Remember, if the shot clock buzzer sounds and the ball has yet to leave the shooter’s hand, it’s a violation. On this play, it’s hard to tell if the ball is out of Jackson’s fingertips before the horn goes off. See for yourself in this video and check out a screengrab in this post.

Did You See This? Rodney Williams alley-oop

Since his 360 slam in mid-December, Rodney Williams has been uncharacteristically quiet on the jaw-dropping dunk front. He’s had his share of slams (watch in our Dunk Archive), but nothing to the level we’re accustom to. That changed Wednesday at Northwestern, when Williams was on the receiving end of a nice alley-oop. To be honest, the pass, from Joe Coleman, might have been as pretty as the dunk. Watch it now.

Did You See This? Craft jumps over expensive seats

What is it about Aaron Craft’s style of play that makes so many respect him? Pardon the terrible cliches, but it’s that the Ohio State point guard gives 100 percent all the time and does whatever to help his team- even if it means he puts his body at risk. Craft showed these qualities in Tuesday’s win over Iowa, when he jumped over the first row of seats as he tried to keep the ball in play. Watch the play right now.

Did You See This? Crean, Painter star in commercial

Here’s something well worth your time. It’s a new Infiniti commercial that features ESPN’s Bill Raftery, Indiana’s Tom Crean, Purdue’s Matt Painter and Butler’s Brad Stephens as teammates in a Best Ball Scramble. Thing is, the rivals on the hardwood have a hard time understanding that they’re on the same team. It’s all in good fun, of course.

Vote: Did Basabe or May have better dunk?

Iowa didn’t only beat streaking Wisconsin on Saturday, it did so with some flair. The Hawkeyes have plays from Melsahn Basabe and Eric May to thank for that. Each player helped lift the roof off Carver-Hawkeye Arena with slams that should make all the highlight shows. Both dunks were nice, but they were even bigger because they came off great defensive plays. Which dunk was better? Watch both now and cast your vote in the poll inside.

Floor to mouth: Craft disgusts Michigan State fans

Earlier this season, Indiana coach Tom Crean dropped a piece gum on the court and put it right back in his mouth (watch it here). To be fair, as Crean later tweeted, it was a fresh piece that he fumbled in the process of putting in his mouth. The five-second rule applies there. But what about a wet mouthpiece that rests on the floor for several seconds?

Glenn Robinson III got a steal at Minnesota and took it down the court for two points, but these were no ordinary points. Robinson eyed the basket and executed a 360-degree spin before dunking it home in front of the soldout Minnesota crowd.

Did You See This? 'Halfcourt heave-ho!'

Near the very end of the first half of Thursday night’s women’s basketball game between Michigan State and Iowa on BTN/BTN2Go, Michigan State’s Klarissa Bell took the inbound pass, turned, and, well, watch the video for yourself. She’s a few steps from crossing center court, and while the shot doesn’t have much arc, they all count if they go through the hoop. The shot went in just before the buzzer sounded to tie the game, 25-25.
