Justin, you've gotten a lot of input on the exposure, so I'll leave that mostly alone. I've shot a lot of basketball at WRA, and know it's a DUNGEON, and the white balance is pretty challenging, to boot.
First off, you did pretty well capturing action. Suggestion: number your shots to make 'em easier to critique.
1: good face, but the shot is soft. Also, if you're shooting for iso-stock, the other player's hand isn't optimal.
2: Better from a sharpness standpoint, but still not tack sharp, and it should be. Cutting off the edge of the ball isn't the best, and neither is chopping off Abrams' left hand.
3. Better iso shot. Might be improved if Alex were looking in the direction of the camera.
4. Pretty standard jump shot stock image. Would be better without Griffey in the foreground.
5. Best iso-stock shot of the bunch, but like the rest, not as sharp as it should be.
1/500s is about as slow as I'd ever consider shooting NCAA basketball. Like mentioned above, don't be afraid to bump up the ISO to 6400 and speed up your shutter to somewhere around 1/800s or so (these shots are a bit underexposed).
Hope this helps.
