Minnesota sophomore Amir Coffey will undergo season-ending surgery on his right shoulder and miss the remainder of the season. Has missed the last five games and 10 games total. Was averaging 14.0 points.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Villanova from 3-point range last three games: 17-for-71 (23.9 percent). Villanova from 3-point range tonight: 16-for-34 (47.1 percent).

Trevon Bluiett has 63 points on 25 shots in his last two games. That's absurd.

Myron Medcalf ESPN Staff Writer 

Down the stretch, Jay Wright will have to manage Mikal Bridges and Eric Paschall, both with four fouls. This is where Trevon Bluiett is at his best. He'll just keep attacking and drawing fouls and nibbling at this lead if Nova can't stay in front of him.

Myron Medcalf ESPN Staff Writer 

Double technical fouls on Omari Spellman and Paul Scruggs after their brief confrontation. Surprised this didn't happen earlier in the game. Lot of trash talk. Huge fourth foul for Scruggs, too.

Myron Medcalf ESPN Staff Writer 

Mikal Bridges was the biggest problem for Xavier in the first half. JP Macura couldn't stay with him. Naji Marshall, a lengthy, 6-7 combo forward is on him to start the second half. That's slowing Nova's offense.

Myron Medcalf ESPN Staff Writer 

Important to note that Villanova only connected on 15 of its 53 attempts (28.3 percent) from beyond the arc in the last three games. Made 58 percent (11-for-19) in the first half at Xavier.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Since Xavier came into the Big East in 2013, Villanova is 9-1 against the Musketeers with wins coming by an average of 17.6 points.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Mikal Bridges, have yourself a day.

Myron Medcalf ESPN Staff Writer 

Phil Booth's injury is significant for this Villanova squad, especially on the defensive end. The Wildcats have held opponents to just 0.95 points per possession (29.8 percent from the 3-point line), while creating turnovers on more than one-fifth of their possessions, per hooplens.com. Much harder to run players off the 3-point line and guard the perimeter without the guard.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Marvin Bagley III is out again for Duke tomorrow. Will be his third straight missed game.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Northwestern scores 11 second-half points and blows a 27-point lead to fall to Michigan State, 65-60. Wildcats missed 17 straight shots at one point.

Alex Scarborough ESPN Staff Writer 

Kentucky's four-game losing streak is over as the it beats Alabama, 81-71, at home. It wasn't always pretty, but the Wildcats dominated the boards, out-rebounding the Tide by 17. Turnovers down the stretch doomed Alabama .

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Will Wade coming out in an aggressive 1-3-1 zone out of back-to-back timeouts late against Missouri worked to perfection. Tremont Waters and LSU escape, snapping Mizzou's five-game wining streak.

Alex Scarborough ESPN Staff Writer 

It's amazing that Kentucky is +17 rebounding yet is leading Alabama by just 2 points with under 8 minutes remaining. The Wildcats have missed some point-blank shots this afternoon.

Alex Scarborough ESPN Staff Writer 

Alabama big man Donta Hall may be wearing two different shoes (one white, one crimson), but he's playing very good basketball. He's 7 of 8 from the field and a big reason why the Tide have the lead over Kentucky with under 9 minutes to play.

Jake Trotter ESPN Staff Writer 

Oklahoma's Trae Young, on his recent offensive struggles: "I'm getting guarded like nobody else in the country is being guarded, scouted on like no one else in the country. It's a mystery coming out each and every game to try and figure out how a team is going to guard me and how I'm going to dictate how my team wins. … It's a lot tougher for me to score now than it was in the beginning. ... It's a process. Right now, it's tough."

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Northwestern lost to Rutgers four days ago. Northwestern is up 22 at halftime on Michigan State right now.

Alex Scarborough ESPN Staff Writer 

Collin Sexton has returned from the locker room with a bandage on his chin. Alabama's leading scorer took a hard fall on the court earlier and went straight to the locker room. He's now back on the court against Kentucky.

Alex Scarborough ESPN Staff Writer 

Collin Sexton fell and smashed the side of his face on the court after a drive to the basket. He was slow getting up and when he did, he went straight to the locker room. He's Alabama's best scoring option.

Mike Couzens ESPN College Football 

One of the cool things about calling a game at Georgia Tech is being setup by the visiting team's bench. Usually we are across the floor, and don't get to see into the huddle like this.
