Senior Jio Fontan, who bruised his left knee when it hit the court Thursday during the Trojans' win at Stanford, said that while the contact left a mark, he would be able to play Sunday.

Who doesn't love watching backboards get smashed? Trevor Wages, a junior center from the Colorado School of Mines, clearly enjoys the act. On Friday night, Wages slammed the ball and shattered the backboard during the first half of a game at Metro State.
