It's the best non-tournament in college basketball and tonight, it's clutch time.  The ACC-Big Ten Challenge is tied, 4-4, with six games tonight.  Which conference will have bragging rights?  Updates to come.

Virginia Tech beat Michigan, 73-70.
No. 14 Louisville beat No. 15 Purdue, 71-64.
Miami (Fla.) beat Rutgers, 73-61.
Clemson beat Nebraska, 60-58.
No. 13 Indiana upset No. 3 North Carolina, 76-67.

I can't believe two No. 1 teams have lost before Christmas.  No. 1 Kentucky was upset by No. 11 UCLA, 97-92.  Isaac Hamilton had 19 points in the Bruins' second straight win over the Wildcats.

I really can't stand cancer.  Turner broadcaster Craig Sager, who was 65, died from complications with leukemia.  His career spanned more than 40 years.

You really need to watch your feet around this guy.  No. 5 Duke suspended Grayson Allen indefinitely after Wednesday's tripping incident, his third in the last 10 months, in a 62-51 win over Elon.

I wanted to ask this on both the NBA and college basketball threads.  What was the best finish from 2016, Cleveland Cavaliers small forward LeBron James' epic block or No. 1 Villanova's Kris Jenkins' title-clinching three?  Updates to come.

And Villanova beat DePaul, 68-65.

Whether or not you like the Blue Devils, let's hope Coach K gets better soon.  According to sources, Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski is expected to take a leave of absence due to back issues.

That "indefinite" suspension was a fucking joke.  No. 9 Duke's Grayson Allen is going to start tonight in Durham, N.C., against Georgia Tech after serving a one-game suspension for a tripping incident.  Updates to come.

And Duke beat Georgia Tech, 110-57.

Congratulations to a legend on his growing list of accomplishments.  Head coach Roy Williams earned his 800th career win as No. 9 North Carolina topped Syracuse, 85-68.  He is the second fastest to achieve the feat.

What the flying hell happened last night?  Chino Hills (Calif.) Huskies sophomore LaMelo Ball, the brother of UCLA guard Lonzo Ball, dropped 92 points in a game to remember.  His coach said, "This kid gets us going."

What a thriller tonight in Syracuse!  Syracuse's John Gillon banked in a three-pointer at the buzzer with a trio of defenders closing to upset No. 10 Duke, 78-75.

Even in a year of major upsets, it's still a shocker: Oregon beat Kansas 74-60 to earn their first Final Four spot since 1939.
