College basketball teams are winding down their regular season in hopes to make it to the NCAA Tournament.

2/26/16 - The rankings are in, but not completely solid for most NCAA basketball teams. Each and every game for college basketball teams from here on out is extremely important. On Monday and Tuesday night, some shuffling and rearranging occurred for the upcoming NCAA tournament. Tulsa had a huge win over AAC leader, Temple, which makes Tulsa a little bit safer as the tournament approaches. Vanderbilt was on the road against Florida, but still needed to leave the arena with a win. They were able to do so, pushing the Gators farther and farther away from postseason play. Get your tickets today for the NCAA tournament before it is too late. Watching a March Madness game live is something that will create lifetime memories.

2/4/16 - After eight years consistently ranked in the AP’s top 25, the mighty Blue Devils have fallen out of favor. Duke has uncharacteristically lost four of their last six games, dropping them to 16-6 on the year including 5-4 in ACC conference play. What this means for the NCAA Tournament is yet to be seen, but one thing is for sure: the deck in college basketball has been shuffled and then some. Will Oklahoma, Texas A&M and Xavier figure into the conversation when tourney time rolls around? These squads look sharp right now, but it’s anyone’s guess who will have the momentum when the big dance begins. Don’t delay—get your NCAA Tournament tickets while they’re hot!

1/28/16 - It’s a nice time to be a Sooners fan! Even though OK didn’t go all the way in the College Football Playoffs, they made a strong showing in front of a national audience. Now the school’s basketball program is doing more of the same, as Oklahoma picked up their 17th win on the season, 91-67 over Texas Tech at home. Senior guard Buddy Hield had another big outing with 30 points on 9-12 shooting, including 5-for-8 from downtown to go with six rebounds and three assists. Will the Sooners still lead the way when this year’s NCAA Tournament kicks off? Don’t wait around—grab your tickets for the tourney and be a part of the most exciting college hoops action of the year!

1/21/16 - Even though it’s still January, the dreariness of winter has many awaiting the return of spring. College basketball fans are also anxiously anticipating the warmer season, but not because they’re cold or have the winter blues, but because that means it’s NCAA Tournament time! So far, this has been a crazy season in the world of college hoops, and many sports enthusiasts are predicting that the March Madness tourney will be full of upsets. This week that unpredictability has been especially evident, as four out of the six top teams have had significant losses. Sixty-four teams will make the cut to compete in the Big Dance, will your favorite team be among them?

1/14/16 - It’s still over a month away, but the NCAA Tournament is already stirring up plenty of buzz among college hoops fans. Although the look of the landscape is quite a bit different than it was in 2015, many of the usual suspects are right near the top. No. 9 Duke remains just ahead of No. 10 SMU, and both teams rank ahead of No. 14 Kentucky, last year’s NCAA darlings for the majority of the season. Miami clocks in at No. 8 thanks to a 13-1 start to 2016, but with 14-2 Providence and 12-3 Virginia just in the rearview, each of these top-10 teams knows there’s little room for error. NCAA basketball is underway—get your tickets now!

2015 Season

3/22/15 - The 2015 Sweet Sixteen is set! Midwest Regional games in Cleveland feature Kentucky vs West Virginia and Notre Dame vs Wichita State at Quicken Loans Arena. Out at the West Regional, its Wisconsin vs North Carolina and Arizona vs Xavier in Los Angeles at Staples Center. Back at the East Regional in Syracuse, see Louisville vs North Carolina State and Oklahoma vs Michigan State at the Carrier Dome. Down in the South Regional, its Duke vs Utah and Gonzaga vs UCLA in Houston at NRG Stadium. 2015 NCAA Tournament Regional games, including the Sweet 16 and Elite 8, will be played Friday, March 26 through Sunday, March 29.

3/15/15 - The 2015 NCAA Tournament bracket has been announced, with No. 1 seeds Kentucky (Midwest), Villanova (East), Wisconsin (West) and Duke (South). 2015 NCAA Tournament play-in games start Tuesday, March 17th in Dayton, OH, followed by 2nd-3rd Round games Thursday, March 19th through Sunday, March 22nd.

3/11/15 - The NCAA tournament in men’s basketball always showcases some amazing teams. This year, there are several teams that could surprise a lot of people. On team in particular that is showing championship talent is Maryland. This team is having one of their best seasons in recent memory, and a lot of their success can be attributed to Melo Trimble. He averaged 16.1 points per game this season, which can be ascribed to his aggressive style. Even when there’s not an opening, he always looks to drive to the rim. He’s got a stellar .876 free throw percentage, which has helped Maryland win some big games. If he and his team can gather some momentum throughout the tournament, they could be this year’s Cinderella team to root for.

3/4/15 - One of the most exciting times in college basketball is the NCAA Tournament. This tournament is full of talented teams who battle it out to prove they are the best in the country. Right now, one team in the running to win the whole thing is Kentucky. This team has played outstanding, and they are currently 30-0. Just one more game is separating them from an undefeated season. Another team that’s got a great shot at going far in the tournament is Louisville. The Cardinals, who are currently ranked 16th in the nation, have a talented squad this year. A top scorer for them is Terry Rozier, and he’s averaging 17.4 points per game this season. If he can keep up this type of production on offense, his team is going to go far.

2/26/15 - As the NCAA Tournament gets closer, many of the teams on the bubble are still working hard to make a place in the tournament. There are still 40 teams who have neither secured their position nor been completely eliminated from it. North Carolina State has continually been on and off the projected field, but experts believe the wins over Louisville and North Carolina have helped their chances. The Texas Longhorns are another team looking to change their fate, with a recent string of losses putting them in a position where they have to win two of their last three games. Fans will be watching these final games of the regular season and the conference tournaments to see what teams make the final cut for the NCAA Tournament. Tickets are still available for most of the rounds of the tournament.

2/18/15 - As March Madness approaches, fans are preparing their brackets for the 2015 NCAA Tournament. Although the teams will not be secured until after the individual conference tournaments, there are many who have already secured their spots -- and others that are pretty much a lost hope. Several teams on the bubble are trying to use these last few weeks to secure an at-large bid. Recently, North Caroline State and UCLA have worked their way back into the selection, while Seton Hall has lost its chance at a high seed. Fans will be looking at important games this week, including LSU at Texas A&M, Purdue at Indiana, Kansas State at Baylor, Seton Hall at St. John's, and Utah at Oregon to see if more bubble teams may change their fate. Tickets are available for most of the rounds of the NCAA Tournament.

2/3/15 - The calendar has flipped to February and college basketball action all across the country is heating up. On Saturday, the previously unbeaten Virginia Cavaliers let one slip away at home against a formidable #4 Duke team, losing 69-63 in Charlottesville. This leaves the #1 Kentucky Wildcats as the only remaining unbeaten team in a major conference. The Wildcats continued their winning ways with last night’s win over the Georgia Bulldogs, who refused to back down to the super talented Wildcats. Elsewhere in the nation, the #2 Gonzaga Bulldogs and #5 Wisconsin Badgers have continued their winning ways as they head into the meat of their conference schedule and prepare for the madness of the NCAA Tournament. Make sure that you keep checking in at Razorgator all season for the latest updates on the college basketball world.

2014 Season

4/8/14 - Last night we saw the conclusion to the greatest tournament in American sports, the NCAA Tournament. In the National Championship Game we saw the UConn Huskies get out to an early lead and never look back as they never trailed the Kentucky Wildcats in the game and went on to win their fourth National Championship 60-54 on the shoulders of tournament MOP Shabazz Napier.

4/7/14 - Over the weekend we saw some great action in the Final Four between the Florida vs UConn and Wisconsin vs Kentucky games. In the first game of the night Shabazz Napier led the Huskies to victory over the Gators while Julius Randle propelled the Kentucky Wildcats over Wisconsin to set up a NCAA Championship Game between two of the most storied college basketball programs.

4/4/14 - In less than 24 hours the Final Four is slated to begin but there is still plenty of time to get Final Four tickets which are going for the cheapest prices we have seen in years. The Kentucky Wildcats have one of the strongest fan bases in all of college basketball as do the UConn Huskies which if they both win could combine for a very intriguing National Championship.

4/3/14 - The teams in the Final Four are set and now it is just a waiting game until this weekend to find out who gets to play for a National Championship. One team that has to feel pretty good about their odds are the Florida Gators who are lead by the great Billy Donovan who has brought them two National Championships and four Final Fours in the past already and knows what it takes to bring them a third title.

4/2/14 - Now that the Final Four teams in the NCAA Tournament are determined we will now play the waiting game. These four teams won’t tip off until Saturday at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas which leaves college basketball fans plenty of time to still get tickets for the biggest games of the year.

4/1/14 - We now know which teams will be apart of the Final Four. While many people had Florida and Wisconsin reaching this point in their brackets, few thought that UConn or Kentucky would be here. The Final Four is slated to begin this Saturday with the NCAA Championship Game taking place that following Monday.

3/31/14 - The Final Four is set with the UConn Huskies and Kentucky Wildcats punching their tickets yesterday in dramatic fashion. Florida will face UConn in the opening game this Saturday while Wisconsin will face Kentucky in the second game. Final Four Tickets are available now so make sure to buy them while you can!

3/28/14 - The Sweet 16 round of the NCAA Tournament began last night and gave us half of the Elite Eight bracket with Florida, Arizona, Wisconsin and Dayton all punching their tickets. Dayton has to be the feel good story of this tournament and will look to keep going on their Cinderella story when they play top overall seed Florida on Saturday.

3/27/14 - Tonight the Sweet 16 round of the NCAA Tournament kicks off with four great games. Of those four games the one that has the most intrigue around it has to be the Florida vs UCLA game in the South Region. These two teams have looked the strongest of any in the tournament through the first three rounds and will square off tonight in Memphis for a chance to go to the Elite Eight.

3/26/14 - Tomorrow night the Sweet 16 round begins when Dayton and Stanford face off in a game no one thought they would ever see as both teams had to knock off two higher seeded teams to get here. Also playing tomorrow night will be the Arizona Wildcats who have been absolutely crushing teams and look like they might be able to ride this momentum to a National Championship.

3/25/14 - One of the biggest rivalries in all of collegiate basketball has always been Kentucky vs Louisville. This year is a bit different as we find the “Battle for the Bluegrass” coming in the Sweet 16 round of the NCAA Tournament. These two teams will go to head to head on Friday night for a chance to go to the Elite Eight.

3/24/14 - Over the weekend we saw some fantastic finishes in NCAA Tournament games, and one that made people scratch their head. The UNC - Iowa State game ended in a very bizarre fashion as UNC thought they called a timeout to set up one final chance at a buzzer beater but when the referees went to the monitors they determined that time had run out and the game was over without the Tar Heels ever getting a last second shot off.

3/21/14 - There’s nothing quite like the start of the NCAA Tournament. Yesterday we saw a plethora of fantastic games beginning at noon and not stopping until midnight, with a record four games going to overtime on the first day of the tournament. The biggest upsets of the day were Dayton, Harvard and North Dakota State who all were able to beat their higher seeded opponents.

3/20/14 - The last two play-in games of the NCAA Tournament came last night and field of 64 is now set. Tennessee was too much for Iowa last night as were the Cal Poly Mustangs who overpowered Texas Southern to play their way into March Madness. Today commence the start of play for the second round of the NCAA Tournament which promptly begins at noon Thursday.

3/19/14 - Yesterday we saw the start of the NCAA Tournament as two teams found a way to get into the field of 64 after winning their play-in games on Tuesday night. Albany was able to hold of Mount Saint Mary’s fervent comeback to win the game while North Carolina State dominated Xavier from start to finish. Albany now moves on to the monumental task of trying to become the first 16 seed to win a game in the NCAA Tournament when they play the Florida Gators while NC State will become a 12 seed looking to topple A-10 Regular Season Champion Saint Louis.

3/18/14 - Today the NCAA Tournament officially begins with two of the four play-in games taking place tonight to move the bracket down from 68 teams to 64. Playing tonight are North Carolina State vs Xavier and Albany vs Mount Saint Marys in Dayton, Ohio. The winner of NC State vs Xavier will become the 12 seed in the Midwest Region and play Saint Louis while the winner of Albany vs Mount Saint Marys will be the 16th seed playing #1 overall Florida in the South Region.

3/17/14 - Yesterday was Selection Sunday which means that the seeds are set, the brackets are made and the NCAA Tournament games are about to begin in just a few short days. This year was the first in a while that the brackets were basically settled before the selection committee announced them with no real teams getting snubbed. March Madness officially kicks off on Tuesday with the play-in games but won’t be in full swing until Thursday which marks the beginning of the Second round.

3/14/14 - Today is one of the most jam packed days of college basketball as there are a total of 36 teams in action throughout the day. All of these games matter as these teams are in must win games so they can continue on in their respective conference tournaments. Make sure to keep an eye out for the Iowa State vs Kansas and UConn vs Cincinnati games today as they will be the only ones featuring two ranked teams squaring off against each other.

3/13/14 - Wednesday marked the beginning of conference tournament play for the so-called “power conferences” in college basketball. The ACC, Big East, Big XII and Pac-12 tournaments all began last night with the only real surprise of the night coming in the Big East Tournament which saw Depaul knock off the higher seeded Georgetown squad 60-56. Additionally American University are dancing after dismantling Boston University last night to win the Patriot League Championship Game, becoming the 13th team to punch their ticket to the Big Dance.

3/12/14 - With each passing day of Championship more and more college basketball teams are seeing their dreams come true by earning a bid to the NCAA Tournament. Last night we saw the championship games of the Horizon, Northeast, Summit and West Coast Conferences wherein Milwaukee, Mount Saint Mary’s, North Dakota State and Gonzaga each punched their tickets to the Big Dance respectively.

3/11/14 - It is Championship week and that means that there are a bunch of college basketball team desperate to win their tournaments just to have a crack at playing in the NCAA Tournament. So far this week there have been a number of teams to punch their ticket such as Coastal Carolina, Delaware, Harvard, Manhattan, Eastern Kentucky and Wofford. Be sure to keep an eye on these tournaments all week long to stay up to date on who will be in the Big Dance.

3/7/14 - With each passing day we inch closer and closer to Selection Sunday and the start of the NCAA Tournament and March Madness. Yesterday we saw #6 Villanova lock up the regular season Big East Championship with a victory over Xavier and will make a strong case for a #2 seed in the tourney and who could make a deep run into the Elite Eight or even Final Four when the times comes.

3/6/14 - This past week has not been good for the men on the Duke University basketball team. They began the week as a surefire number one seed in the NCAA Tournament but after last night’s game that appears doubtful, losing to ACC foe Wake Forest 82-72. With Duke out of the picture Kansas takes over their number one seed to go along with Florida, Arizona and Wichita State.

3/5/14 - Tuesday night was a huge day in collegiate basketball with many of the top teams in action and a few of them even losing, altering the picture for the NCAA Tournament. Yesterday saw big games between #13 Creighton vs Georgetown, #16 Iowa State vs Baylor and #7 Syracuse vs Georgia Tech in which all three ranked teams lost to their underdog opponent, changing many people’s mind about where these teams should be seeded on Selection Sunday.

3/4/14 - Now that it is officially March we can start to look at the NCAA Tournament and how teams are going to be seeded, but the top teams in the country have separated themselves to make a case for a #1 seed such as Florida, Wichita State, Virginia and Arizona. All four of these teams were able to lock up the regular season championship in their respective conferences this past week and will now head into their conference tournaments before Selection Sunday tells them who they will matchup with in a few days.

3/3/14 - It was a big weekend in terms of seeding implications with several top line favorites losing on the road. The Cavaliers of Virginia clinched the ACC regular season title with a 75-56 drubbing of Syracuse, while 5th ranked Kansas, 7th ranked Louisville, 9th ranked Creighton, 10th ranked Saint Louis, and 11th ranked Cincinnati all fell on Saturday, with only one of those losses (Louisville) coming against a ranked team (Memphis.) Several more marquee matchups are taking place this week so expect a similar level of volatility.

2/24/14 - With February coming to a close, the 2014 NCAA tournament is nearing its tipoff, and now's the time to start asking questions. How far will your favorite team go? Will the Badgers and Bo Ryan finally advance past the Elite Eight? Who will be this season's Cinderella team? Can Virginia, Clemson, San Diego State or Cincinnati prove that defense wins championships—or will BYU, Florida and Louisville shut down the opposition with consistent offense? Lock in your NCAA Tournament tickets now and find out!

2/18/14 - This past Valentine's Day weekend saw the Florida Gators take down Kentucky on the road, moving them up the rankings from #3 to the penultimate spot, nipping at (no longer unanimous) Syracuse's heels. The only other undefeated team is Wichita State, which held strong at #3, while Arizona got knocked down from second to fourth. On the outskirts are UCLA (#23) and Gonzaga (#25), who made their way back into the rankings this weekend, shoving SMU and Pittsburgh out.

2/13/14 – There are only two undefeated College Basketball teams remaining in the top 25 – No.1 Syracuse and No.4 Wichita State. The unbeaten teams were both tested this week: freshman Tyler Ennis hit a 35-footer at the buzzer last night to keep the Orange on top the rankings and behind Ron Baker and Cleanthony Early, the Shockers managed to put away SIU after being down at the half two days ago. The last time a team went undefeated into the NCAA Tournament was in 2004, when the Saint Joseph’s Hawks went 27-0 during the regular season.

We are one month out from the start of March Madness that begins with College Basketball Conference Tournaments and culminates with the Final Four. Before you begin to fill out your brackets, participate in an office pool, or watch Selection Sunday, make sure to get out to a NCAA basketball game and catch the best-of-the-best before the 68 finest meet in the survive and advance sports tournament of the year.

Arizona, who has been on top the polls for eight straight weeks, is a (obvious) one seed in ESPN’s Joe Lunardi’s latest Bracketology. The Wild Cats out of the Pac-12 Conference are joined by Syracuse (who has held the #2 spot for the same eight-week period), powerhouse Kansas, and the nation’s favorite Cinderella this year Wichita State. This, despite the Florida Gators #3 rank and undefeated Conference run half way through SEC play.

The sites for the 2014 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament are set!
