Grayson Allen still has another gear to get into, and freshman Jayson Tatum could dominate March. Nobody’s beating Duke if it peaks at the right time.
With Northwestern’s No. 1 scorer still out of action, Bryant McIntosh’s complete-game effort against Wisconsin was a shot of pure inspiration.
From the ACC, five teams in the top 16. From the Big 12 and Pac-12, three apiece. From the Big East and SEC, two apiece. Thanks for playing, Big Ten!

Jon Scheyer is a budding star in the college basketball coaching ranks — on a strikingly similar path to that of Northwestern’s Chris Collins.
Bucket List: Northwestern’s home crowd comes alive. Is Illinois’ next coach on the bench at Duke? Kentucky’s Malik Monk takes fun to the max.
Bucket List: Caleb Swanigan has shored up his total game; top teams are dropping like flies; Illini coach John Groce needs to turn Te’Jon Lucas loose.
