Reggie Hearn knows some great basketball players have matriculated through Northwestern. Guys like Evan Eschmeyer, Billy McKinney, Shon Morris, Juice Thompson and John Shurna, among others. And none of them delivered an NCAA tourney bid. There have been six trips to the NIT, but Hearn and his teammates want more. They want to dance in March.

It’s heat-check time, and Iowa junior Devyn Marble keeps hitting. The guard, fresh off a 30-point effort Saturday, hit 6-of-8 3-pointers on his way to scoring 27 points in Wednesday’s 90-46 victory over South Carolina State. If it weren’t for the lopsided score, Marble, who sat much of the second half, probably would have tallied his first back-to-back 30-point games. Either way, Marble’s night was remarkable. Watch all six of Marble’s treys now.
Devyn Marble continued his red-hot shooting with 27 points, leading Iowa to a 90-46 rout of South Carolina State on Wednesday night. The Hawkeyes (10-2) are off to their best start since 2004-05.
Cody Zeller finished with 16 points and six rebounds, and Christian Watford added 15 points and eight rebounds, leading No. 6 Indiana to a 93-54 rout of Mount St. Mary’s on Wednesday night. The Hoosiers (10-1) looked like a team ready to make amends four days after its first loss of the season.
