College Basketball always offers a quick change of pace from the NBA. There are more upsets, wilder games, and players seemingly unknown who have big performances out of nowhere. Last night, Tyler Ennis dropped 28 points for the Syracuse Orange as they defeated the California Golden Bears 92-81. In other action, Ryan Boatright had 13 points, 8 rebounds, and 5 assists as UConn won 76-66 over Loyola.

There were only four NBA games on the schedule, but there were still some great performances. John Wall and Nene both had 30-point performances for Washington as the Wizards managed to defeat the Los Angeles Lakers. Joe Johnson scored 21 points for the Brooklyn Nets as they escaped Toronto with a 102-100 victory over the Raptors. Take a look at the Shoes That Won Last Night.
