Do you think the Cleveland Cavaliers are regretting taking Anthony Bennett as the #1 overall pick yet? Sure, Bennett's got plenty of potential, but between players like Victor Oladipo, Michael Carter-Williams, and Tim Hardaway Jr., the Canadian rookie has been out-shined thus far. Last night, Oladipo exploded against the New York Knicks, coming just shy of a triple-double with 30 points, 14 assists, and 9 rebounds in Orlando's 129-121 win.

Meanwhile, in Philly, Michael Carter-Williams and company couldn't find an answer for the veteran ways of Dirk Nowitzki, who dropped 25 points on 9-12 shooting as Dallas beat the 76ers. The Bobcats and the Pelicans tangled in a tightly contested game, with Charlotte ultimately picking up a 124-112 win thanks to a strong night from Al Jefferson. There's plenty more NBA coverage after the jump, so be sure to catch up on the best players and shoes above.

In NCAA women's hoops, No. 5 Stanford's Chiney Ogwumike showed off, scoring nearly half of the Cardinals' 64 points with 27 of her own in their win over USC. Hit the gallery above to see which shoes got the job done for Ogwumike.
