Vermont great Taylor Coppenrath

One of the greatest players in the history of the University of Vermont is Taylor Coppenrath, a star on Tom Brennan-coached teams that made three straight trips to the NCAA Tournament and won a game in the 2005 NCAA Tournament, beating Syracuse in overtime. CHN's Jon Teitel had the honor of spending some time with the legendary Catamount. 

Jon Teitel: You did not play varsity basketball until your junior year of high school: were you a late bloomer, or did you just grow into your body/game?

College Hoops Wednesday Recap: Purdue Wins Yet Loses?

Purdue's Robbie Hummel

The first significant happening on The Road to the Final Four may have taken place in Minneapolis on Wednesday night depending upon the results of an MRI on Thursday. Purdue forward Robbie Hummel went down with a knee injury in the first half and was unable to return to action. Seemingly in control of the game at that point, the Boilermakers fell victim to a Golden Gopher run to take the lead and Minnesota led by as many as nine in the second half.

In the days leading up to the game Mississippi State students called DeMarcus Cousins repeatedly, some using the time to make humorous statements while others went well beyond the line that separates fun and terribly poor taste. But what was supposed to be a showdown between Cousins and Jarvis Varnado did not play out as such, especially in the second half and overtime as the senior fell victim to foul trouble.

Ohio State's Evan Turner and Thad Matta

It didn't look too good for Ohio State at the half of their game at #6 Purdue on Tuesday night. Robbie Hummel put on a shooting exhibition, knocking down eight three pointers on the way to 29 first half points as the Boilers went into the locker room up 41-29. But when you have one of the leading candidates for national Player of the Year you're never out of a game, especially if he's still recovering from a broken back. Ohio State outscored Purdue by sixteen in the second half in picking up a key Big Ten road win 70-66, with Evan Turner leading the way.
