Junior Shenneika Smith's three-pointer with eight seconds to go lifted the St. John's Red Storm over #2 UConn, snapping the Huskies' 99-game winning streak that dated back to 2007. No doubt, the biggest upset of the year so far.

Statistical breakdown and quotes.

Pictures, including the game-winning shot (far right, third row....looks like some of the UConn fans can see what's about to happen).


Just, wow.

#1 Baylor narrowly avoided an upset of their own, holding off Texas Tech, which lead the game much of the way. Baylor clinches at least a share of the Big 12 title.

Speaking of titles, Stanford grabbed the Pac-12 title outright today with a win over Oregon. It's the first title of the new conference.

#12 Green Bay also held off an upset, overcoming Youngstown State in overtime, 77-72.

West Virginia was trying to pull off their third upset, and had #20 DePaul by 14. But the Blue Demons surged back for the 77-63 win.

The 20s:

Cal's victory today over Oregon State puts them at 20 wins on the season.

San Diego State earned 20 by stuffing Air Force.

Another close one for CSUN:

The Matadors trailed UC Davis by 15, but rallied for the 63-60 victory.


Deep: Tennessee assistant coach Mickie DeMoss has been on this road before.

UC San Diego students will vote whether or not to move from DII to DI.


It's the UCLA-USC rematch, this time in the land of Troy. There will be a jersey retirement ceremony at halftime for Pam and Paula McGee. Like the Jackson Five, I'll be there.
