Jordan McRae-ning all over No. 8 Florida Gators

Looks like the Tennessee Volunteers (17-10) have a reason to party as they beat an already beaten up No. 8 Florida Gators (22-5) Tuesday night. Tennessee guard Jordan McRae scored 27 points proving to be a key player towards his teams chances at a postseason.
Gators were playing without two key players, forward Will Yeguette (knee) and guard Michael Frazier II (concussion).Proving the team needs their talents for the success of their season. The tides are turning as injury-prone Gators are showing signs of weakness so close to March. If you were betting on the Gators for this years March Madness, I’m sorry to say that their performance level is not up to par for NCAA champions.

On Tuesday night, the Minnesota Golden Gophers defeat the No. 1 team Indiana Hoosiers 77-73, for the first time since 1989. ¬†Minnesota is currently not ranked, so this was a big win for the Gophers. ¬†Minnesota¬†did most damage from inside the paint grabbing 23¬†offensive¬†rebounds and scoring 40 points in side the key. ¬†Minnesota senior forward Trevor Mbakwe scored a season-high of 21-points and added 12 rebounds. ¬†The unranked team shut down Indiana with solid defense, leaving Indiana’s lead scored with only 9-points and fouled out for the second time in his college career. ¬†

Hurricane season is over.

The No. 2 Miami Hurricanes (22-4) came roaring into the Wake Forest (12-14) but this time it was the Demon Deacons that made it rain over Miami, putting an end to Miami’s 14-game winning streak Saturday morning. Wake Forrest dominated from behind the arc with 58% shooting making the final score 80-65. C.J Harris of Wake Forest played a fascinating game with 23 points on the day. Some might say that statically, Miami had a losing game coming to them but to Wake Forest? Really? It makes it hard to say now that they have a good shot at winning the NCAA tournament in March. But then again the Hurricanes always cause havoc. They cannot have another game like this before March comes if they want to compete with No. 1 Indiana.
