    The NCAA tournament didn't exactly get off to a rockin' start, but by mid-afternoon, things got interesting with St. Mary's near buzzer-beater over Memphis, and Marquette's improbable comeback win over Davidson.

    According to's Big Ten Blog, the Legends and Leaders divisions in the Big Ten will receive a makeover when Maryland and Rutgers join the conference in 2014.

    If you asked college basketball fans outside of Wisconsin what teams tied for first place in the Big East Conference, what percentage of fans would correctly include Marquette?
