For what felt like the first time in forever, hoops stole the stage from college football and stepped out from the shadow to give us an incredibly fun-filled day with action across the country. We had fighting coaches, players kicking one another and of course some real basketball information which we'll get you up to speed with.

With Saturday's slate now in the rear-view, let's take a look back and determine who came away as the biggest winners and losers.

Loser: Grayson Allen's flailing feet

I mean, these things just can't keep to themselves. Allen was suspended following an incident on Dec. 21 in which he tripped an Elon player. He was suspended one game as a result.

But he learned his lesson ... Right? RIGHT?

Maybe not.

During Saturday's game against Boston College, Allen appeared to try and trip with Connar Tava. Was it an intentional play? You be the judge:

Who knows? The ACC reviewed the play and determined no action was needed. But Allen certainly hasn't done himself any favors with his recent history littered with tripping.

Winner: The soon-to-be No. 1 Baylor Bears

The only thing standing between a likely No. 1 AP ranking on Monday for Baylor was a chippy Oklahoma State team. And the Cowboys made Baylor earn every bit of its 61-57 win in Waco.

Baylor was out-rebounded by a younger, smaller OSU team 35-30. They turned the ball over 13 times. And Oklahoma State shot 55 shots to just 39 for Baylor.

Yet the Bears still found a way to pull off a win.

Baylor has never been ranked No. 1 in the AP poll. So that's a lot of pressure for a team whose never been in that situation. And now Scott Drew's Baylor Bears will almost certainly be ranked No. 1 come Monday.

Winner: Jeff Capel's first go as head coach at Duke

In Duke's first game without Mike Krzyzewski this season, Jeff Capel secured his first win and held off a streaking Boston College team in Cameron Indoor Stadium.

It wasn't pretty. In fact, Duke held a 24-point lead at one point before it got as close as six with under a minute remaining. Capel's hands were likely sweating.

But a win is a win. With all the distractions surrounding Duke with Grayson Allen and Coach K, combined with the pressure of taking on such a prominent role in the sports community as the acting head coach of Duke, it's a notable win if not for just getting over the hump and getting the first one under his sleeve. Had Duke blown a 24-point lead at home to Boston College, the temporary Jeff Capel era would have had Duke fans pretty upset.

Loser: Dillon Brooks' knee-jerk reaction

Allen wasn't the only player flailing his legs in an inappropriate way. Oregon's Dillon Brooks also got in on the action too.

Brooks went up for a rebound - lost it - then landed awkardly on his leg. His immediate reaction was to thrust his leg forward, which flung directly into a poor Washington State defender's groin area.

Brooks was handed a Flagrant 2 foul for the kick, and was ejected from the game. It capped a pretty poor day of sportsmanship across college basketball.

Winner: Louisville's hopes to remain in ACC race

The beginning of ACC play for the presumed favorites has been completely bananas. Duke, North Carolina, Louisville and Virginia all suffered opening week losses in ACC play. Louisville opened 0-2 in conference play, but secured an important win over Georgia Tech to get over the hump today, 65-50.

The ninth-ranked Cardinals got back on the wining track just in time, too. They get Pitt, Clemson and Duke all at home over the next week before making a road trip to Tallahassee to face No. 12 Florida State, who is still undefeated in ACC play.

The win over Georgia Tech isn't notable in itself, but getting a win and staying in a position to contend for the regular season title is a big feat for Rick Pitino's team. Falling into a 0-3 hole would be tough to climb out of.

Loser: Georgia, Missouri coaches involved in this strange scuffle

Things got chippy between SEC foes Missouri and Georgia as the halftime buzzer sounded, with both benches clearing. Here's the sequence:

C'mon kids, can't we all just get along?

This type of behavior, of course, requires mature adults to step in and Oh, wait - the coaches were fighting too!

Georgia's director of basketball operations Kent Davison and Missouri assistant coach Steve Shields were assessed technical fouls for the incident. Georgia pulled out the win, 71-66.

Winner: The Florida State Seminoles

It's time Florida State starts getting more credit as a legitimate ACC contender. They are somehow flying under the radar as the No. 12 team in the country, and notched another impressive 93-78 win over No. 21 Virginia Tech -- a team that beat Duke handily last week.

The Seminoles are riding an 11-game winning streak, and have NBA talent littered across the roster with Dwayne Bacon and Jonathan Isaac rounding into form as the ACC competition continues to get tougher.

Florida State welcomes Duke into Tallahassee on Tuesday.

Loser: North Carolina basketball fans

Oh, you're excited about UNC-NC State in the Dean Dome? Too bad, because it's postponed!

The University of North Carolina released a statement saying the game was postponed "due to to the likelihood of dangerous and worsening road conditions later this evening."

Even the Governor of North Carolina declared a state of emergency in the state due to treacherous winter conditions in the state. All kidding aside, safety is important.

And on the bright side, the teams will play on Sunday instead.

Winner: Penn State

The Nittany Lions held off Michigan State. The Spartans are fully healthy with Miles Bridges back in action. Tom Izzo's team had won four straight and looked as if they were turning a new leaf before Saturday, having notched wins over Minnesota, Northwestern and Rutgers in impressive fashion.

This wasn't about Michigan State losing, though. Penn State took this one. They played an up-tempo, exciting brand of basketball, drilled four first-half 3-pointers, and forced 17 turnovers. Huge win on the whole for the Penn State basketball program by winning over a really good conference foe in an exciting fashion.
