Videos: Indiana's Victor Oladipo Could Do Something Like This to Temple

If you're comparing styles, you probably won't finder a stranger matchup in the 2013 NCAA Tournament than Khalif Wyatt vs. Victor Oladipo.

He's played just one game in the tournament and you've already heard every analyst across the quartet of networks refer to Wyatt's "old-man game." Just two weeks ago, Fran Dunphy held his index finger no more than an two inches from his thumb to evidence his guard's vertical leap. I've watched every viewable game of his college career and I'm still not sure I've ever seen him dunk the ball. Not that any of that matters, since Wyatt dropped more points in the second round (31) than any other player.

But you know who doesn't have an old-man game? This guy:

Oladipo is one of the best athletes in the tournament and will likely be the primary cover on Wyatt on Sunday. Down at the other end, you can expect to see Dunphy try to match Oladipo with Scootie Randall.

Upcoming NBA Lottery-pick Cody Zeller in the post is an entirely separate issue — one for which Temple does not really have an answer — but you've heard all year — most recently from N.C. State coach Mark Gottfried — that Wyatt can hang with anyone in any conference.

Tomorrow, he's headed up against No. 1 Indiana and the guy who set the college basketball world on fire with a alley-oop he didn't even convert:

They're absolutely nothing alike, and it should be great to watch:


Reports: Andrew Bogut to sign with Cavaliers after buyout from Sixers

Reports: Andrew Bogut to sign with Cavaliers after buyout from Sixers

Andrew Bogut, we hardly knew ye. 

After coming over from Dallas as part of the Nerlens Noel trade, Bogut is already thinking about his next move.

With the Sixers expected to buyout Bogut's contract, the former No. 1 overall pick will look to sign with the Cavaliers, according to ESPN's Tim MacMahon. 

The Sixers swapped Noel for Bogut, Justin Anderson and a top-18 protected first-round pick — which will likely turn into two second-round picks — last Thursday. 

With LeBron James begging the front office for help, the Cavaliers are expected to sign Bogut's former Dallas teammate Deron Williams Monday, according to The Vertical's Shams Charania

La Salle suffers demoralizing loss to struggling UMass

AMHERST, Mass. -- Zach Lewis scored a career-high 37 points, including six three-pointers, and Massachusetts pulled away from La Salle 84-71 on Sunday to snap a three-game losing streak.

Lewis, whose 37-point effort was the best for any player in the Atlantic 10 this season, hit nine of his 16 field goal attempts overall and was a perfect 13-for-13 at the free throw line. Dejon Jarreau added 20 points and four three-ponters for UMass (14-15, 4-12).

Pookie Powell hit five 3-pointers and scored 24 points, and B.J. Johnson added 20 points to lead La Salle (14-13, 8-8).

Both teams shot similar percentages and had similar three-point totals, but the Minutemen finished with a plus-14 advantage at the free throw line.

La Salle remained within striking distance but a 13-4 stretch for UMass midway through the second half pushed its lead to 63-51. The Minutemen kept the Explorers at arm's length the rest of the way.
