Tuesday, November 14:

Horizon:
It was a rough night for the Horizon.

Rutgers 70, Cleveland State 38. This was a nasty game for CSU, which was 3-22 from three, 30% overall, and outrebounded by a wide margin.

Northern Illinois 85, Green Bay 65. Green Bay was the last Horizon team to kick off the regular season. Host NIU trailed early but dominated Green Bay over the last 10 minutes of the first half to lead by 13 at the break. The Phoenix cut the lead to 4 a couple times in the second half, but each time NIU responded with a flurry of buckets. Green Bay may have been lucky it was as close at it was. They committed 18 turnovers and 30 fouls, shot 26%, and allowed NIU to hit 51% from the floor.

Miami (Oh.) 73, Wright State 67 (OT). A 17-4 run starting midway in the second half left WSU up 8 with under 4 minutes to play, but like UIC against St. Joe's last night, the Raiders couldn't close it out. Miami (2-0) rallied with a 10-2 finish in regulation and then outscored the Raiders 10-4 in the extra period. These losses will really hurt the conference RPI down the road. Freshman Louden Love had 13 points and 12 rebounds for Wright State (0-2).

Youngstown State 134, Franciscan 46. Well, that must've been fun, but it won't help the league's RPI. D-III Franciscan committed--get this--49 turnovers. Freshman Michael Akuchie led YSU (1-1) with 28 points and 9 rebounds in 21 minutes. Between the two teams, 34 players saw action in this game.

Non-Conference Foes:
Toledo 72, Ohio Northern 62. Toledo (2-0) had something of a letdown after beating St. Joe's on Saturday, but they had enough to beat D-II ONU. TreShaun Fletcher had 27 points and 10 rebounds for the Rockets.

Houston Baptist 105, Arlington Baptist 67. A good time at the camp meeting.

Other Games of Interest:
#1 Duke 88, #2 Michigan State 81. If you didn't watch this game, it'll be worth watching the replay on ESPN. With Marvin Bagley on the bench for most of the game after being accidentally poked in the eye by a teammate, Allen Grayson was magnificent for Duke (3-0). Grayson finished with 37 points, including 7-11 from three and and a pair of threes that broke State's back in the final two minutes. Nick Ward, Jarren Jackson, and Miles Bridges each had 19 for State (1-1), though overall it really wasn't a very good game for Bridges. Cassius Winston had 11 assists.

#4 Kansas 65, #7 Kentucky 61. This was also a super game. Great double header to start the season. The Jayhawks nearly knocked Kentucky out of ring in the first 6 minutes, but the Cats battled back to tie it 14 minutes in, and from there it was nip and tuck the whole way, with Kansas hitting free throws in the final 20 seconds to win.

#5 Villanova 113, Nicholls State 77.
#17 Gonzaga 106, Howard 68.
#19 Purdue 86, Marquette 71.

Syracuse 71, Iona 62.

Mid-Major Win of the Day: Liberty 79, Wake Forest 66. Wake loses its first two to Georgia Southern and Liberty.

Honiorable Mention for Mid-Major win of November 14:

Eastern Washington gets bought into Stanford and beats the Cardinal 67-61. Stanford shot 33% for the game. Keep an eye out for Bogdan Bliznyuk who plays for EW.

Wednesday, November 15:

Non-Conference Opponents:
Washington State 75, Seattle 59. Seattle fell to 1-2 in its last game before Saturday's matchup with the Titans. The Redhawks led by 5 at the half and extended that lead to 10 in the opening minute of the second half, but WSU (2-0) came back with a 22-6 run to take the lead. Seattle rallied to tie it midway through the half, but the Cougars responded with a 17-2 run to ice the game. Ron Gittens led Seattle with 18, but was just 4-13 from three. Seattle was cold all-around, hitting just 30% from the field and 24% in 41 three point attempts.

#23 UCLA v. Central Arkansas. Late game on the coast.

Fort Wayne 85, Delaware State 71. Jon Konchar, one of the better players no one has ever heard of, had 18 points and 12 rebounds as Fort Wayne (2-1) wore down the Hornets (1-2).

Siena Heights 80, Concordia 69 (OT). Siena Heights (2-3) snapped a three game losing streak. Concordia is 3-3.

Other Games:
#9 North Carolina 93, Bucknell 81.
#14 Minnesota 107, Niagara 81.
Creighton 92, #20 Northwestern 88. Creighton led by 15 in the first half, but Northwestern rallied early in the second and it was close for most of the final 20 minutes. This was a well-played game, with just 15 total turnovers and both teams shooting in the 50% range. Vic Law led Northwestern (2-1) with 30 points, while Khyri Thomas had 24 points and 11 rebounds for Creighton (3-0).

#22 Seton Hall 84, Indiana 68. A 24-7 run early in the second half put this one out of IU's reach. Angel Delgado had 19 points and 11 rebounds for Seton Hall. But the real question is: Is it panic time yet in Bloomington?
#24 West Virginia 94, American 68.

Maryland 79, Butler 65.
SMU 81, Northwestern State 35. SMU held Northwestern State to 8 points in the first half. Northwestern State earlier lost to D-III

Mid Major Win of the Day: Scant pickings tonight, but I'll go with BYU 65, Princeton 56. I personally don't really think of BYU as a "mid-major," but many so classify the Cougars, seeing as how they don't play in one of the P6 conferences and their name doesn't rhyme with Bonbaga or Bichita Bate.

That game on the west coast that was not finished nearly resulted in the mid-major upset of the day.

Games for Thursday, November 16:

Horizon:
UIC 99, Delaware State 55. UIC led 53-19 at the half. Dominique Mathews led the Flames (2-1) with 19 points.

Non-Conference Opponents:
Michigan 61, Southern Mississippi 47. The Wolverines (3-0) led 10 five minutes in and by 14 midway through the first half, only to see Southern Miss come back to take a one point lead into the locker room. Trailing by 4 in the second half, UM put the clamps on, holding the Eagles (1-1) without a field goal for nine and a half minutes and surrendering just 7 points in the final 14:30 of the game.

Tulsa 81, Western Michigan 74. Tulsa (2-1) rolled up a big early lead, and Western (1-2) tried to come back in the second half but couldn't get closer than 9. Thomas Wilder led WMU with 19.

Saint Louis 77, Virginia Tech 71. A stunner at the big people's table in the 2K Wounded Warrior Classic. Saint Louis was unimpressive in two early wins over Seattle and tiny Rockford College, while Tech beat Detroit and the Citadel by a combined 71 points. But after a bit of preliminary sparring, Saint Louis took control of this one with a 19-5 run midway through the first half. Tech cut the margin once to 5, and in the final two minutes cut it to four, but they never made it a one possession game. The Billikens hit 11 foul shots in the final minute to hold the Hokies at bay. Michigan State transfer Javon Bess led St. Louis with 20 points and 10 rebounds, and their star freshman Jordan Goodwin had 19 and 10. Junior Ahmed Hill had 26 for Tech, but the rest of the team shot 28.6%, and Tech failed to capitalize on a big edge in fouls, making just 23 of 36 shots. I had thought Saint Louis was our best chance for a "marquee" non-conference win this fall, but that task now looks bigger.

Belmont 69, Middle Tennessee State 63. Belmont followed up its win over Vanderbilt by beating the preseason Conference USA favorite on the road. Amanze Egekeze led the way with 24 points, and Dylan Windler had his third straight double-double to open the season. Belmont now has a couple impressive wins along side a 4 point loss at Washington. If the Titans take care of business on Saturday against Seattle--and let's play 'em one at a time and all that-- that Sunday game with the Bruins is going to be a huge test.

Other Games of Interest:
Eastern Michigan 76, Arkansas State 59. James Thompson had 23 points and 11 rebounds as EMU advanced to 3-0.

#3 Arizona 91, Bakersfield 59.
#8 Florida 108, North Florida 68. North Florida continued with its Murderer's Row schedule. They've opened with road games at Michigan, Michigan State, VCU, and now Florida.

#11 Miami 90, Florida A&M 59.
#12 Cincinnati 97, Coppin State 54.
#13 Notre Dame 105, Chicago State 66.
#15 Xavier 80, Wisconsin 70. Down 2 with 2:30 to play, Xavier scored 12 straight points to in Madison. Trevon Bluett had his third straight 25 point game to lead the Musketeers (3-0). Ethan Happ had 21 for Wisconsin (2-1).

Providence 77, Washington 70. Also in the grown ups bracket of the 2K Wounded Warrior classic.

Mid-Major Win of the Day: Is Saint Louis a mid-major or a high major? Illinois State is definitely a mid-major, and beat last year's final 4 team, South Carolina, 69-65 in Myrtle Beach. Let's also give some kudos to Hofstra, which knocked off Dayton 72-69 to start out 3-0.

I watched the SLU-VT game on ESPN2. SLU had better physical match-up's against VT at guard. Also, they slowed the game down on offense and forced VT to defend the paint. We allowed VT 74 shots. SLU permitted VT only 52 shots. We will have difficulty forcing our tempo upon SLU at their arena because our guards are not as physically strong as SLU's. We will need more minutes from Hogan, Blackshear, Prince and T. Jones than we got at VT. And we will need better shooting from players other than Chatman. The one thing lacking so far from our guys this year has been patience. They will need a lot of patience on both ends of the floor if we want a chance to beat SLU. The one thing in our favor could be that SLU's tempo will likely keep the scoring margin closer so that if our guards suddenly get hot shooting hands, we could have a chance. And SLU was prone to foul trouble inside vs VT. But SLU has a lot of transfers, older players with experience in the Big Ten and elsewhere, who will not panic.

Because the game is at Toledo, and Toledo beat St. Joe's? That's the best I can do. Take the points and put your money down.

Nunn turned his ankle last time out and some were worried that he wouldn't be available for this game. I do not know the latest status. Also, Jalen Hayes is still serving that goofy suspension.

It still looks like a good bet from here. Maybe our friends at Oakland know more.

I just went to there message board. Looks like Hayes, Nunn, Palmer, and Brock are all missing the game. Would Vegas know that? With out their 3 centers a walk on name Cotter is the only center they have. They are going to get killed

Friday, November 17:

Horizon:
Northern Kentucky 87, James Madison 78. Not as close as it looks: NKU led by 20 at the break and by more than that for most of the second half, before a meaningless, late JMU rally made the final score look respectable. Northern (3-0) played through an off night by star Drew McDonald, who had just 11 points and two rebound, shooting 2-10. All five starters scored in double figures, led by Lavone Holland with 24. James Madison is 1-2.

Cleveland State 80, Coppin State 56. CSU (1-2) got into the win column against the MEAC's Coppin State (0-4). Detroiter Kenny Carpenter had 24 points in the first half as the Vikings opened a 17 point halftime lead. Carpenter finished with 26 points and 11 rebounds.

Eastern Illinois 80, IUPUI 79. The Jaguars became the third Horizon team this week to blow a late lead. IUPUI led by as many as 7 in the second half, and led the entire half until Eastern's Terrell Lewis hit a three with 2:30 left for a 1 point Panther lead. The two teams then swapped leads a couple time, and IUPUI's D.J. McCall fouled Lewis with 6 seconds left and IUPUI up 1. Obviously, Lewis hit both free throws for the win. Lewis finished with 25. He was matched by IUPUI's Aaron Brennan. Eastern's win was enabled by a big edge at the foul line. The Panthers (1-2) made 23 of 31 shots; the Jaguars (1-2) just 3 of 7. Blowing these late leads really increases the Horizon's RPI woes. Though it's very early in the season, currently the Horizon ranks 31st in conference RPI.

Green Bay 98, Lakeland 27. Not a misprint. D-III Lakeland was 10 for 82 from the floor, 3 for 48 from three. Novi's Kam Hankerson led Green Bay with 17.

Concordia 69, Milwaukee 55. Milwaukee (2-1), decisive conquerer of Iowa State earlier this week, came back to earth with a thud. D-II Concordia began the night 1-3, not including a 48 point exhibition loss to Minnesota. But a 14-0 run early in the game put Concordia up 8, and a 24-4 run to end the half had them up by 22. Concordia hit 68% of its shots in the first half, including 9 of 14 from three. Milwaukee opened the second half with an 11-2 run in the first 3:45, and it looked like they might come back, but Concordia stiffened and slowly pushed the lead back up to 23. In the end, it was Milwaukee's first lost to a non-DI team in 20 years. Quite a swing in less than 100 hours.

Non-Conference Opponents:
Providence 90, Saint Louis 63. You look at this result and the game immediately below, and wonder "what the heck happened on Thursday night?" Providence closed the first half with a 35-11 run to open a 20 point lead, then began the second half with a 19-9 run, and were never threatened.

Virginia Tech 103, Washington 79. Tech (3-1) recovered quickly from its loss to Saint Louis, hammering Washington (2-2) in the consolation round of the 2K Wounded Warrior event. Tech came out firing, leading by 31 at halftime. Justin Bibbs led the way with 30 points, and Ahmed Hill and Nickeil Alexander-Walker contributed 23 and 20, respectively.

Western Michigan 86, Appalachian State 67. WMU (2-2) scored the first 15 points of the second half, breaking open what was a tie game at the break. Thomas Wilder had 31 points.

#7 Kentucky 78, East Tennessee State 61. ETSU had an early 10 point lead but couldn't hold it. Kentucky shot 57% to ETSU's 32%.

#23 UCLA 96, South Carolina State 68. UCLA (3-0) was a bit sharper tonight than in their overtime win over Central Arkansas earlier this week.

Other Games:

#1 Duke 78, Southern 61.
#4 Kansas 98, South Dakota State 64.
#5 Villanova 104, Lafayette 57.
#16 Texas A&M 84, UC Santa Barbara 65.
#18 Louisville 87, Omaha 78.
#25 Baylor 78, Alcorn State 61.

Illinois 82, DePaul 73.
Colorado 70, Quinnipiac 69. Quinnipiac (1-2) led by 13 with 4 minutes to play, but couldn't hold it. With the up 2, Alain Chigha missed two free throws with 7 seconds left. The Buffs' McKinley Wright rebounded the second miss, dribbled the floor, and hit a three at the buzzer. Wright finished with 21 points and Colorado stays unbeaten at 3-0.

Mid Major Win of the Day: I'm tempted to go with Drake's 77-74 win over Wake Forest, but Wake is now 0-3, with losses to Georgia Southern and Liberty before tonight. So I'll go with Drexel 84, Houston 80 in the Paradise Jam.

Woof, the HL isn't off to a good start at all. Best win right now is Milwaukee over Iowa State. The next best? Maybe Oakland over Ft Wayne? Yeah, its that bad that a W over Ft Wayne is the 2nd best win so far for the HL.

Saturday, November 18. Another terrible night for the Horizon League: seven teams went into action, and 5 of them lost by double digits, all to other mid-majors.

Seattle 102, Detroit 71. The Titans hit 87% of 23 free throw attempts, so that was good.

Horizon:
Toledo 87, Oakland 74. The word was that Oakland would be missing several players, including Isaiah Brock, Kendrick Nunn, and Julius Palmer. In fact, all three played, Nunn for 39 minutes, and it still wasn't enough to keep the Grizzlies, HL preseason favorites, from losing by 13 at Toledo. OU was down 14 at the half, and a second half rally got them no closer than five. Martez Walker finished with 29 points and Nunn with 24. OU (2-1) was minus Jalen Hayes, still serving a 4 game NCAA suspension for, well, for not much reason at all, but allegedly for academic violations. Toledo (3-0) got 26 points from Jalean Sanford and 20 from Treshaun Fletcher. Oakland's hopes to be in contention, if necessary, for an at-large NCAA bid take an early blow.

Northern Kentucky 85, Iona 72. The only real HL highlight of the night was NKU (4-0) beating Iona (1-3) behind Carson Williams's 20 points.

Murray State 80, Wright State 61. Murray State (2-1) spoiled the Raiders home opener. Terrell Miller had 21 points and 10 rebounds, and Jonathan Stark 16 points for the the Racers. Wright State coach Scott Nagy benched his star guard, Justin Mitchell, who had been ineffective in the Raiders first two games.

Canisius 104, Youngstown State 104. Cameron Morse continued to struggle, shooting just 4 of 12 for 12 points, and YSU (1-2) was crushed at Canisius (1-2). The bright spot for YSU, such as it was, was 33 points from sophomore Bryce Hartfield. Looking head to YSU vs. UDM, one has figure 200+ points will be scored in that game.

Fort Wayne 67, UIC 51. At the UIC Pavillion, UIC led by 1 at halftime but Fort Wayne steadily pulled away after the break. UIC star Dikembe Dixson was 1-11 from the field. For Fort Wayne, Bryson Scott scored 16 points in the final 6:20 to make sure the Flames didn't come close.

Milwaukee 66, Florida International 51. Milwaukee continued its up/down season, and gave the Horizon a bit of salve, by beating Florida International. Bryce Nze had 17 points and 9 rebounds and Brett Prahl 15 points to lead the Panthers past the Panthers.

Other Non-Conference Opponents
Belmont 93, Houston Baptist 88. This was an odd game. Belmont was a heavy favorite, and moved smartly out in front. The Bruins led by 8 just three minutes in, by 18 at halftime, and by 27 five minutes into the second half. Then a curious thing happened. HBU scored 21 unanswered points, and after a pair of Belmont baskets boosted the lead back to 11, HBU went on a 12-1 run to tie it with five minutes to play. But HBU never got the lead, and Dylan Windlers made four free throws in the final 17 seconds to ice the win. Josh Ibarra had 15 points and 12 rebounds for Houston Baptist; freshmen Ian DuBois and David Carahar added 19 and 17 points, respectively. Kevin McLain finished with 27 for Belmont (3-1), and Windler had his 4th straight double-double to open the season, finishing with 23 points and 14 rebounds. Belmont shot 43 three-pointers in this game.

Um-Dearborn 72, Lourdes 52. Dearborn is 5-2.

Indiana Tech 73, Siena Heights 70 Siena Heights falls to 2-2. Indiana Tech is 6-0.

Other Games:
Eastern Michigan 76, Howard 66. Elijah Minnie had 21 points and James Thompson added 18 points and 14 rebounds for the Eagles, who are 4-0.
Central Michigan 103, Eureka 68. Eureka couldn't win one for the Gipper, or anyone else.

#17 Gonzaga 79, Utah State 66.
#19 Purdue 106, Fairfield 64.
#20 Northwestern 82, La Salle 74.
#22 Seton Hall 82, NJIT 53.
#24 West Virginia 111, Morgan State 48. Daxter Morgan scored 32 for WVU (2-1).

Maryland 80, Bucknell 78. Bucknell dropped four bits on the Terps and led 50-35 at halftime. Bucknell is now 0-4 after road losses at Monmouth, Arkansas, North Carolina, and Maryland.
Western Illinois 102, Calvary 25. How mean is that?

Mid-Major Win of the Day: Manhattan 73, Harvard 69.

Games for Sunday, November 19:
Last second heroics by Detroit and Milwaukee kept the Horizon from another disastrous night. Last second heroic by Vermont kept it from being a perfect night for the Horizon.

Detroit 116, Houston 109. Comments in the game thread.

Horizon League:
Vermont 66, Northern Kentucky 64. Once again a Horizon team couldn't hold it's lead late. Down 13 with 9 minutes to play, Vermont went on a 12-0 run to get back in game. A three by Lavone Holland briefly stopped the bleeding for NKU, but Vermont scored another 6 in a row to take the lead. Drew McDonald hit free throws to tie it, and then the teams traded misses and turnovers for nearly two minutes until Trae Bell-Haynes hit a jumper with 3 seconds left to give the Catamounts (3-1) a big win. Holland led the Norse (4-1) with 14. Anthony Lamb had 26 points and 14 rebounds for Vermont.

Milwaukee 72, Elon 71. What do we make of the Panthers? Today, at home, they barely nipped a so-so Elon team. But consider this: the fiasco against Concordia doesn't count for all the various computer rankings, and the win today is a win. To the computers, Milwaukee is 4-0 with an 18 point road win over Iowa State. Elon led today's game by 17 at halftime, and was still comfortably ahead with 6:30 to play. But they didn't score again from field. Jeremiah Bell missed a three pointer with time running out, and the ball caromed straight into the hands of Jeremy Johnson, who was just standing at the foul line. The rather surprised Johnson fired it back up and in as the buzzer sounded, giving Milwaukee it's only lead of the night. Brock Stull had 21 points and Bryce Nze 14 points and 12 rebounds for the Panthers. The Panthers offset Elon's 58% shooting from three by taking care of the ball (just 5 turnovers) and getting 16 offensive rebounds.

Non-Conference Opponents:
Belmont 90, Seattle 77. See, Seattle (2-3) isn't so tough. Belmont won its 4th straight since dropping its opener at Washington.

South Carolina 79, Western Michigan 66. At Myrtle Beach, the Gamecocks (4-1) held WMU (2-3) without a field goal for over 8 minutes in the second half, blowing open what had been a 1 point game to that point.

Some Other Games of Interest:
#2 Michigan State 93, Stony Brook 71.

#8 Florida 70, New Hampshire 63. New Hampshire (1-2) was within three until the final 90 seconds.
#10 USC 93, Vanderbilt 89 (OT). USC's Jordan McLaughlin had 35, to 31 for Vanderbilt's Matthew Fisher-Davis. What's with all the double names these days? When did this become a thing?

#14 Minnesota 92, Western Carolina 64.
Texas Tech 85, #20 Northwestern 49. The margin was a shocker. Tech (4-0) scored the first 9 points, never trailed, and led by double digits from the 15:44 mark of the first half.
#21 St. Mary's 79, San Jose State 61.

Loyola 88, Samford 67. Our old friends from Loyola are off to a 4-0 start.
Valparaiso 83, Southeast Louisiana 50. Our old friends from alpo are off to a 4-0 start.

Ohio 96, Indiana State 94 (4OT). Four overtimes in Charleston. Indiana State had an 18 point first half lead and led by 16 at the half. But OU held the Sycamores to 1 field goal in the final 7:45 of regulation to force an OT. In the second OT, the Sycamores were up by 9 with 45 seconds to play, and still up 7 with 25 seconds to play. But the Bobcats scored 8 points in 11 seconds and forced a third OT. Indiana State led by 3 in the third OT but again couldn't close it out. And then they by 3 in the 4th OT, but this time the Bobcats not only tied it, they overtook the Sycamores. ISU is 0-3 since crushing Indiana in the season opener. Detroiter Mike Laster led OU (2-2) with 25 points.

Ohio State 80, Northeastern 55. Jae'Sean Tate was 10-10 from the floor for OSU (4-0).

Mid-major win of the day: Not much stands out. For post-season ramifications, Vermont's win over Northern Kentucky is as big as any. But I'll go with Robert Morris 66, Duquesne 59. Duquesne has one of the sweetest cupcake schedules ever, but it didn't help them at home tonight against crosstown rival Bob Morris. Beating the crosstown rival from the bigger conference has to feel good for Robert Morris--although maybe it's old hat, as they've now done it 5 times in the last 6 years.

Monday, November 20:
Another very bad night for the Horizon League, which is probably the worst it has ever been.

Horizon:
Syracuse 74, Oakland 50. Sure, Jalen Hayes has been sitting out an idiotic NCAA 4 game suspension. But no, OU fans, Hayes or no Hayes, you do not have an "elite" team this year. Oakland (2-2) committed 19 turnovers, shot 30%, and was outrebounded 48-33. Kendrick Nunn was just 4-17 from the floor. But they're probably good enough to win the Horizon. Tyus Battle had 25 points for Syracuse (4-0).

Mississippi State 77, Green Bay 68. Green Bay (1-2) trailed the entire game, and though they were never closer than 4 after the first 2:30, I guess we should give them some credit for never letting things get totally out of hand.

East Carolina 72, Cleveland State 69. CSU (1-3) became the latest Horizon team that couldn't hold a late lead. The Vikings led East Carolina by 7 with 1:50 left to play, but didn't score again. East Carolina (2-2) is not a good team--they were picked to finish last in the American Athletic Conference--but CSU was picked to finish 9th in the Horizon, and this would still have been a road win over an AAC team. Senior Bobby Word, who is supposed to be CSU's best player, led the collapse of the last 2 minutes with a turnover, two fouls, and a missed jumper on a chance to retake the lead with 10 seconds left.

Wright State 73, Tiffin 49. Wright State gets its first win of the year, whomping on outmanned Tiffin. Freshman Everett Winchester led the Raiders with 18 points and 7 rebounds. Justin Miller returned to the lineup after being benched for two games, and had 15 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists, and 4 steals.

Non-Conference Opponents:
LSU 77, Michigan 75. LSU came back from 9 down in the final minutes, and won it when Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman's three point attempt was off with 3 seconds to play. This makes it unlikely UM (3-1) will be ranked when we square off at Little Ceasar's Arena. Charles Matthews had 28 points and Moritz Wagner 24 in the loss. LSU (3-0) shot 59%.

Creighton 100, #23 UCLA 89. Aaron Holliday had 25 points and Tom Welsh 16 points and 13 rebounds for UCLA (3-1), but Creighton (4-0) was too much for the Bruins.

East Tennessee State 81, Delaware State 57. ETSU (2-2) forced 22 turnovers and shot 52% for an easy home win.

Other Games:
#1 Duke 92, Furman 63.
#4 Kentucky 70, Troy 62. A 17-4 Troy run in the final 8 minutes made it look closer than it was. Kentucky is 4-1, Troy is 2-3.
#6 Wichita State 92, California 82.
#9 North Carolina 96, Stanford 72.
#12 Cincinnati 73, Buffalo 67. A late rally brought Buffalo (2-1) to within 4 points in the final 30 seconds, but that was as close as they could get.
#13 Notre Dame 83, Chaminade 56. Bonzie Coleson had 23 for unbeaten Notre Dame.
#15 Xavier 96, Hampton 60. Hampton (1-4) held Trevon Bluett to a season low 21 points. Didn't help.
#16 Texas A&M 72, Oklahoma State 55.
#22 Baylor 70, Wisconsin 65. Wisconsin (2-2) cut a 19 point second-half deficit to 2, but couldn't get over the hump. Ethan Haupt had 23 points and 13 rebounds for the Badgers. Baylor was led by Manu Lecompte with 24 and Jo Lual-Acuil with 19 points and 10 rebounds.
#23 West Virginia 91, Long Beach State 62.

Penn State 85, Pitt 54. The score impressed me. Penn State led by over 40 in the second half.
Marquette 94, VCU 83.
Charleston Southern 107, Toccoa Falls 36. Regular readers of the Scoreboard know that little Toccoa Falls is my new favorite school. Toccoa Falls, an NCCAA school (National Christian Collegiate Athletic Assn) plays no fewer than 5 NCAA D-I teams this year. So far they've lost to Appalachian State 135-34; to Mercer 110-43; and now to Charleston Southern (3-2). But Toccoa gives up that many points no matter who they play--the only difference is that they score more when playing little schools. Their 0-6 record includes losses to NAIA teams by scores of 108-76; 117-85; and 117-79. Do you think it's too late for us to swap out UCLA for Toccoa?

Mid-Major Win of the Day: Louisiana 80, Iowa 71. You think we've got an identity problem? The Ragin' Cajuns of Louisiana burst onto the NCAA scene with back to back Sweet 16 appearances in 1972 and 1973, as "Southwest Louisiana." In 2000 they switched to "Louisiana-Lafayette." In 2013 they decided their athletic teams should just be called "Louisiana." Anyway, tonight they stopped Iowa (3-1) cold. A 21-1 first half run put Louisiana (3-1) in control, and they maintained a double digit lead until the final 11 seconds.
Honorable Mentions:
Rider 67, George Washington 65.
Portland State 83, Utah State 79. Nice win for the Big Sky's Portland State (4-0) over one of the better Mountain West programs.

Clearly, Louisiana (fka Louisiana-Lafayette and Southwest Louisiana) did not hire UDM's branding strategist. ESPN is already using Louisiana in its scores while it still uses Detroit for us.
