The NCAA moved back the 3-point line this season to create more room in the lane and cut down on the barrage of 3's in college basketball. Shooting percentages are down, historically low. Attempts also have dropped, slightly. Division I teams are shooting 33.3% so far this season, lowest since the 3-point line was added to college basketball in 1986-87.

    B1G leader Maryland visits Michigan State
    CBB - Riding a seven-game winning streak and alone atop the conference standings, No. 9 Maryland (20-4, 10-3) seeks to keep the momentum going at Michigan State (17-8, 9-5) on Saturday night.The Spartans ended a three-game slide with a last-second 70-69 victory at Illinois on Tuesday night, and now have the opportunity to get within a game of the first-place Terps. The teams meet again on Feb. 29 at Maryland, where the Terrapins are undefeated. So this is pretty much a must-win situation for the Spartans.
    Colorado vs Oregon tops Pac-12 this week
    CBB - The Pac-12 could get a clear front-runner or the conference race could get even more muddled after Thursday's game.

The Ducks have been ranked 15 straight weeks, the programís second-longest streak since being in the AP Top 25 19 straight weeks from 2016-17.
    Duke/UNC Headlines Week in ACC
    CBB - One of the biggest rivalries in college basketball will be played at the Dean Smith Center on Saturday. 7th ranked Duke is in its customary position near the top of the ACC standings, but North Carolina, sitting at 3-8 in ACC play, is in unfamiliar territory near the basement of the conference. Following Saturday's visit to Chapel Hill, Duke will host Florida State in a battle for 1st on Monday night. So as crazy as it sounds, they will have to avoid overlooking the Tar Heels.
