WHEELING, W.Va. -- Here is a look at what I learned from this weekend's Cancer Research Classic.

With Nate Britt (Washington, D.C./Gonzaga) struggling to find his zone, forward Kris Jenkins stepped up his game. The fact that Jenkins raised his play isn’t the surprise -- after all, he is Gonzaga’s second-best player -- it's the fact that he did it against Jahlil Okafor (Chicago/Whitney Young).
