Connecticut's men's basketball success doesn't stretch back too far. But its recent run is hard to match: four Final Fours and four national titles since 1999, with Monday night's 60-54 victory over Kentucky the latest to seal the trophy.

When is rushing the court OK?

Your college team -- which, for the sake of argument, we'll assume to be a heavy underdog -- has just knocked off a highly ranked opponent in a close-fought contest. Is it time to rush the court? Considering the frequency with which fans pour out of their seats after such a win, it seems like the answer is usually "absolutely, now get out of my way, nerd." Fans in Indiana did just that on Tuesday night after beating No. 3 Wisconsin, although it's not sitting well with everyone:

To wit: It was just a regular-season game, Indiana is 12-5, and it's not as if this is even close to the biggest win the Hoosiers have ever had. What happens when they achieve one that's actually super-impressive?

What do you make of Indiana fans rushing the court after their unranked team beat No. 3 Wisconsin?

Five teams were within two games of each other for the top spot in the final Big Ten regular season standings -- Indiana, Ohio State, Michigan State, Michigan and Wisconsin. The Hoosiers took the regular season title, but it was the Buckeyes who won the conference tournament. The 2013-14 season looks to be just as competitive, as all but Indiana are ranked in the The AP preseason Top 25. Which team will come out on top this time around?

He might be playing for the Detroit Pistons, but that doesn't mean Peyton Siva has forgotten about his old team. On Tuesday, Siva told ESPN.com that the Louisville Cardinals "really aren't missing anything" and will be "better" and "more talented" than the group that claimed the 2012-13 NCAA title. How do the Cardinals stack up against the presumed contenders in 2013-14? Click on the logos below to set your rankings!

Indiana's going to have to hope that its next recruiting class is a good one, as both Cody Zeller and Victor Oladipo will reportedly enter the NBA draft. Oladipo proved to be capable of huge scoring outbursts, while the near-7-foot Zeller was a constant threat near the basket. They're both likely to find their way onto a roster come draft time, although their final draft positions are still up in the air.
