March is just right around the corner, and March Madness has already started. With the 2nd placed Kansas on a verge of clinching their 12th straight Big 12 title, Ohio State’s thrashing by Michigan State, Duke’s motivation from the unlikeliest sources among other headlines, here is what’s trending.

Kansas A Game Away From Claiming Their 12th Straight Big 12 Title

After passing their Tuesday’s last away test with a 66-60 win, how safe it is to call them the reigning champs given that they rarely lose at home?

With two of their last games at home, the Jayhawks are but gone with the title. Their next two home games will be against Texas Tech and Iowa State and a not-so-important away game against Texas. A win in one of their next two will make them outright champions.

Ohio State Vs Michigan State: What We Learned

It was a Big Ten Conference game for both Ohio State, and Michigan State and the game reflected its importance. While Michigan maintained their electric performance, whipping Ohio 81-62, what are the college basketball highlights from this game?

  1. Out of the last seven, Ohio has won five in Columbus, but the Spartans’ 3-point show killed the game. They can shoot from deep, what they carried on from the whistle. The Spartans shot a season’s best 14 of 22 from 3-point range. Forbes proved a thorn for the hosts and helped Michigan win comfortably.
  2. The Bucks are poised for tougher days ahead following Jae’Sean Tate’s shoulder injury. The Buckeyes’ task will be much greater as they must win at least one of their two regular-season games. They face Iowa at home and a rematch against the Spartans at East Lansing. Will they bubble?
  3. The Denzel Valentine Factor; he’s probably the unmentioned star in the Spartan’s win. He struggled with his shooting during the early stages of the game but still harnessed 12 points, four assists, and two rebounds before the halftime whistle. He orchestrated the Spartans’ lead in the 2nd half by his no-look pass to Forbes and his double-digits scores.

A Fan’s Special Way of Motivating His Team Revealed

We all know the resilience that the Blue Devils donned to bounce back from their midseason slide following veteran big man Amile Jefferson’s exit. However, how sweet getting recognition from an ardent fan, urging them to keep on keeping on? To add more gas, the little fan wanted them to defeat their archrival No. 5 North Carolina for his birthday. And they just did that!
