I still expect OU to take care of business in the HL, but geez they have gotten off to as bad of a start as you could've imagined for this season with this team of talented seniors. Having said that, losses in mid November to Toledo, Cuse and KU probably don't amount to much come HL season and tourney except to maybe soften the optimism of Pioneer fans who thought they'd make a whole lotta noise in NCAA tourney.

Nice showdown game Sunday night of Michigan State of UNC. As good of a chance as Izzo has had in a while to improve upon his approx 1 and 15'ish record vs Duke/UNC.

Saturday, November 25:

Detroit 131, Siena Heights 69. That'll work.

Horizon League
Memphis 76, Northern Kentucky 74. Any Horizon hopes for an at-large NCAA bid probably went up in smoke this week, as Oakland was blown out by Syracuse and Kansas, while NKU twice failed to hold leads against unranked but quality non-conference opponents. After to falling to a late Vermont comeback earlier this week, NKU ran up an early lead on Memphis, as high as 16 points in the first half. Memphis didn't get its first lead until there were less than 9 minutes to play. The Norse still had a chance to win it but Lavone Holland's three point try at the buzzer was off the mark. Holland finished with 19 for NKU (4-2). Jimario Rivers led Memphis (3-1) with 17.

Wright State 68, Jacksonville 44. Wright State (3-3) had little trouble in winning its third straight. Grant Benzinger had 16.

Southern Mississippi 71, Youngstown State 64. A final margin of 7 points is pretty close, but this game was actually closer. Though YSU never led in the second half, they were tied several times and neither team ever led by double-digits. Cameron Morse led YSU (2-4) with 24. Southern Miss is 3-2.

Non-Conference Opponents:
Western Michigan 88, Northwood 59. WMU (3-3) cruised past D-II Northwood.

East Tennessee State 83, Fort Wayne 73. Jalan McLoud led the Buccaneers to victory with 25 points, 9 rebounds and 6 assists. Bryce Scott had 24 points for Fort Wayne. We face Fort Wayne (3-3) on Tuesday, ETSU (3-3) in December.

Virginia Tech 96, Morehead State 63. Tech led by 28 at halftime. Nickeil Alexander-Walker led the Gobblers (5-1) with 18.

Murray State 81, Southern Illinois 73. Jonathan Stark had 27 as Murray State (3-1) rallied late.

UM-Dearborn 74, Union 64. UM-Dearborn (6-3) upset Union College, ranked #2 in NAIA, at an invitational in Kingsport, TN. Big Jason Penn had 20 points and 9 rebounds.

Other Games:
Central Michigan 75, Bakersfield 71. Central (5-1) wins the last Great Alaska Shootout title.

#11 Miami 86, North Florida 65.
#14 Minnesota 89, #25 Alabama 84. Here's something you don't see much--a bunch of 'Bama players were ejected from the game, others got in foul trouble, and they ended up playing the last 10 minutes with just 3 guys. And during that time they gained ground! Jordan Murphy had 19 points and 14 rebounds for the Gophers (7-0). Alabama (5-1) got 38 points from Colin Sexton.

Loyola 75, Kent State 60. Loyola is 7-0.
San Diego 72, Grand Canyon 62. Both teams entered the game at 4-0. They drew 7397 in Phoenix. But of course, Grand Canyon is a private school.
Liberty 96, Toccoa Falls 50. Toccoa is 0-7, but this is the first school they've held to fewer than 108 points.

Today's Game of Futility: Jackson State nips Omaha 75-73 in OT, before an announced crowd of 125. This game was played as part of the "Emerald Coast Classic" at Northwest Florida State in --honest to God--Niceville, Florida. Omaha is 0-7. Jackson State is 2-4, with a win over Millsaps in addition to today's victory.

Mid-Major Win of the Day: Slim pickins today. So I'll go with Appalachian State 78, Davidson 62.

Sunday, November 26:

Horizon:
#8 Kentucky 107, UIC 73. UIC (2-3), predicted to be one of the Horizon's better teams, gets shellacked by the Wildcats (6-1). UIC has been disappointing so far, and the honeymoon for Steve McLain may ending.

Wright State 57, Fairfield 56. Wright State did something rare for the Horizon League this year--it held onto a late lead. Up 13, Wright State went almost 8 minutes without a field goal and watched its lead sliced to two. Finally, with just under a minute to play, Justin Mitchell hit a jumper to boost the lead back to four, but the Stags answered with a three pointer to pull within a point with 7 seconds left. Wright State turned it over on the in-bounds play, but Fairfield's final shot at the buzzer was off the mark.

South Dakota 81, Youngstown State 53. I'm surprised how bad YSU has been. They're 0-5 against D-I teams, with an average margin of defeat in excess of 20 points. They trailed this one by 21 at the half.

Non-Conference Opponents:
Michigan 87, Cal-Riverside 42. Riverside (2-3) beat Cal earlier this year, but were no match for the Wolverines (6-1). Moritz Wagner led UM with 21 points and 10 reobunds. Between now and meeting Detroit on December 16, the Wolverines play North Carolina, Indiana, Ohio State, UCLA and Texas. By the time they enter Little Ceasar's Arena, it's likely they'll either be worn out and exhausted, or overconfident. Or maybe just ready to whomp on some mid-major. We'll see.

#23 UCLA 87,, Cal-Irvine 63. All five starters scored in double figures as the Bruins (5-1) steadily ground down the Anteaters (3-5).

Oklahoma State 101, Houston Baptist 74. It was close for a few minutes.

Rio Grande 79,UM-Dearborn 73. Yesterday Dearborn beat NAIA #2 Union; tonight they lost to Rio Grande, which entered the game at 1-7.

Other:
#4 Michigan State 63, #9 North Carolina 45. MSU (5-1) looked really good tonight, very physical. Held UNC (5-1) to 25% shooting.
Eastern Michigan 65, South Florida 47. James Thompson had his 5th double-double of the year as Eastern (5-1) pulled away in the second half.

#1 Duke 87, #7 Florida 84. It was worth staying up late for this game. Duke (8-0) is so mentally tough. They trailed by 17 in this one, with 10 minutes left, and once again they just sucked it up and took it to the opposition. That was their second comeback tonight. Florida (5-1) was fast out of the gate, leading by 15 after six minutes of play, but Duke rebounded to take the lead ten minutes later. They extended that lead to seven, but Florida went on a 14-3 run to end the half, then extended that lead out in the second half. But Duke just visibly toughens in these situations--they play patient, smart, and physical, and they make their shots. Tonight they hit 19 of 20 foul shots, icing the win down the stretch. Marvin Bagley had 30 points and 13 rebounds for Duke.

#16 Texas A&M 75, #10 USC 59. A&M (6-0) has totally dismantled West Virginia, Oklahoma State, and now USC. They are probably underranked.

#17 Gonzaga 76, Texas 71 (OT). Texas loses in OT to a ranked team for the second day in a row. Yesterday, Texas blew a 14 point second half lead against Duke. Today, they trailed Gonzaga by 21, rallied to force the extra period, but couldn't pull it off.

Georgia 83, #21 St. Mary's 81. Jock Landale had 33 points and 12 rebounds for St. Mary's (5-2), but it wasn't quite enough. Michigander Yante Maten had 16 points and 7 rebounds for Georgia (5-1).

#23 West Virginia 83, Missouri 79. Down 13 with 5 minutes to go, the Mountaineers (6-1) went on a 19-2 run to snatch victory from the proverbial jaw of defeat. Missouri is 5-2.

Butler 67, Ohio State 66 (OT). The Buckeyes (5-2) led by 15 points with 4 minutes left, but Butler (5-2) rallied to tie in regulation and win it in OT.

Battle of Futility: Samford 83, Mississippi Valley State 70. Samford (2-5) beat the Delta Devils (0-7) before an announced crowd of 512 in Birmingham.

Mid-Major Win of the Day: NC A&T 87, East Carolina 81. Any time a MEAC team beats an AAC team on the road, it's a big deal for the former.

Re: UIC. In his last two regular season games, Dikembe Dixson has been 5-23 from the field. He played only 13 minutes in the Nov 22nd holiday exhibition vs Olivet Nazarene going 2-3. UIC had played its first 6 games at home, including two exhibition games. In regular season games, they were 2-2 at home with an OT loss to St. Joseph and the blow out loss to Ft Wayne on Nov 18. Against Ft. Wayne, UIC shot 27% (2-18 from 3-pt range) and Ft. Wayne shot 32%. But Ft Wayne got 15 offensive rebounds to UIC's 9 and won the game by 16 points.

Monday, November 27:

The Titans didn't play, but Seattle's win over Idaho State helped push the Titans RPI up to 174. Not great, but at least in the top half.

Horizon:
Oakland 93, Oral Roberts 86 (OT). Hey, it's a road win, and Oakland (3-3) and the Horizon will take it. But no, it's not impressive to have to go to OT to beat 1-6 Oral Roberts, losers to Montana and Pepperdine, losers by 43 to Oklahoma State, 38 to Penn State, and 19 to Tulsa. They did beat NAIA Avila, though. Oakland was lucky here--trailing by two with 14 seconds left in regulation, they got a defensive stop, Brailen Neely was fouled, and made both shots to tie it and force the OT. In Oakland's defense, Kendrick Nunn rested tonight--he's been banged up a bit. Martez Walker had 32 points in his absence. Walker would be a good bet to lead the Horizon in scoring this year if OU didn't have Nunn.

Stetson 83, Green Bay 71. The embarrassment of the Horizon continued tonight as Green Bay (2-3) was pummeled--at home--by Stetson. The Hatters entered at 4-3, but their wins--two over non-DI schools and the others over #346 Florida International and South Alabama, both in overtime, were hardly impressive. But after a few minutes of sparring, the Hatters pulled away steadily to a 20 point halftime lead. Stetson led by as much as 28 in the second half, before a too little/too late rally got Green Bay to within 11 with 90 seconds to play. Khalil Small led Green Bay with 19, but they gotta get him some help.

Non-Conference Opponents:
Seattle 73, Idaho State 67. Seattle (3-4) trailed for the first 30 minutes, but finally worked past the winless Bengals (0-5). Matej Kavas, who lit up the Titans for 27, had 24 tonight.

Other Games of Note:
#12 Cincinnati 83, Alabama State 51.
#18 Virginia 49, Wisconsin 37. Put two of the most deliberate and best defensive teams in college basketball on the court, and you get this kind of score.

Syracuse 72, Maryland 70. Somehow, this is the ACC/Big 10 Challenge instead of the ACC/Big East Challenge, and Maryland (6-2) is purporting to represent the Big 10, which means they think Syracuse (6-0) is in the ACC, not the Big East. We old timers find lots of misprints in the papers these days.

Marquette 86, Eastern Illinois 83 (OT). Nearly the Mid-Major win of the Day. This one wasn't over even after Marquette's Markus Howard made two free throws with 2 seconds to play in OT, but EIU was unable to score on the final play. EIU (2-4) led the entire second half until Marquette (4-2) tied it with 9 seconds remaining, but Marquette never trailed in the overtime.

Lipscomb 74, Belmont 66. Belmont (4-3) gets ambushed by its old rival from across town.

Mid-Major Win of the Day: Cornell 78, Duquesne 71. Duquesne's soft schedule--their 1st 11 contests include home games against St. Francis, VMI, Robert Morris, Cornell, Maryland-Eastern Shore, North Carolina A&T, Delaware State, Stetson, Mississippi Valley State and Lamar--was supposed to get them off to a hot start, but so far the Dukes are just 2-2, Their 1 "tough" non-conference, against crosstown rival Pitt, comes next.

I watched a bit of the Oakland game last night. The funniest part of the telecast was a 2 minute discussion between the ORU announcers on whether or not Coach Kampe dyes his hair. The "color analyst" saying that Kampe is two years older than him and has to be coloring his hair black. The play-by-play guy replied, "Some guys just age better than you."

ORU had the game won when one of its guards dribbled into a trap on its side of half-court after Walker missed a free throw. The guard threw the ball away instead of calling time-out.

For November 28:

Fort Wayne 91, Detroit 82. Bryson Scott was on--34 points, 10-18 from the floor. Corey Allen was not: 3-11 from the field, 0-5 from three. Game. John Konchar had his typical night, 18 points, 13 rebounds. We gave up way too many offensive rebounds. They should probably play at least one game in which JJJ is prohibited from shooting a three. Chatman was darn good tonight. Overall, not a terrible performance, but we'll have to do better to contend in the Horizon.

Horizon:
Western Illinois 90, IUPUI 77. Another bad night for the Horizon League. This one was over by the half, with Western Illinois (5-1) up 24. DJ McCall had 25 points for the Jaguars (2-3).

Non-Conference Opponents:
Western Michigan 65, Saint Louis 51. How did St. Louis (3-3) so trounce Virginia Tech? Down 4 early in the second half, Western (4-3) went on a 10-0 run and never trailed again.

Virginia Tech 79, Iowa 55. How did Tech (6-1) lose to Saint Louis?

#2 Kansas 96, Toledo 58. Kansas (6-0) led by 29 at halftime and more than 50 in the second half, before easing up.

Murray State 85, Harris-Stowe 56. Murray State (4-1) beats up an NAIA team from St. Louis.

Houston Baptist 96, Dallas Christian 66. HBU's big center, Josh Ibarra, had 24 points and 10 rebounds.

Other Games of Interest
#8 Wichita State 112, Savannah State 66. An potentially expensive blowout for Wichita (5-1), as star Landry Shamet went out with an ankle injury.
#21 Xavier 76, #16 Baylor 63.
Purdue 66, #17 Louisville 57. After losses to Tennessee and Western Kentucky in the Bahamas, Purdue (6-2) knocks Louisville (5-1) from the unbeaten ranks.

Florida State 78, Rutgers 73. Both teams entered the game undefeated.
Georgia Tech 52, Northwestern 51. Exciting game in the B10/ACC Challenge.
Valparaiso 72, Utah State 65. Valpo is 8-0 after winning this game in the Mountain West/MVC Challenge.

Mid-Major Win of the Day: South Dakota State 99, Mississipppi 97. SD State (7-2) was up by 23 in the first half, then watched Ole Miss rally to get their first lead of the game with 4:37 left in regulation. Old Miss (4-2) ran the lead to 4, but SD State scored the last 4 points of regulation to tie, and won it in OT. Mississippi has a player named Justas Furmanavicius, whose only point of the game came on a free throw with 1 second left in OT. But I like the name. South Dakota State was able to counter with Skyler Flatten, who scored 8. Their star, Mike Daum, had 26.

Mid-Major Madness take on WMU-SLU

http://www.midmajormadness.com/2017/11/28/16708426/your-nightly-brutality-south-dakota-state-outlasts-ole-miss-mike-daum

"Meanwhile, Saint Louis has now lost three-straight games after the upset win over Virginia Tech. They struggled to connect from distance (3-for-15), which has been a recurring problem this year. The Bilikens have shot just 24.7 percent from distance as a team, the 345th worst mark in the country per KenPom.

But hey, perk up Saint Louis fans. Losing to the Broncos wasn’t even the Bilikens worst loss in the past week after that brutality defeat at the hands of Detroit on Nov. 22. And losing the Western Michigan might not even be a bad loss, as the Broncos are considered by many to be the favorite in the MAC West."

Wednesday, November 29:

Horizon:
Robert Morris 81, Youngstown State 74. YSU (2-6) stayed winless against D-I teams.

Troy 87, UIC 66. Boy has UIC (2-4) been disappointing. They're not just losing--they're losing most their games by halftime. Troy (5-3) led by 19 at the break tonight.

Cleveland State 75, Arkansas State 72. Holy Moly! A non-conference win over a D-I opponent for the Horizon! Leading by 1 with 5 seconds left, CSU botched the in-bounds, giving Arkansas State one more chance. Trailing by 1 with 4 seconds left, Arkansas State (2-5) botched the in-bounds, and CSU got the win. Kenny Carpenter had 17 for the Vikings (2-4).

Milwaukee 75, Northern Illinois 62. Milwaukee (5-2) continued to play well, the inexplicable loss to Concordia notwithstanding. They pulled away from NIU (4-3) late, behind Brock Stull's 18 points and 10 rebounds. And that's a road win. too.

Northern Kentucky 112, Berea 31. I think little Berea was outmanned here. Carson Williams led 6 Norse (5-2) in double figures with 18.

Titan Non-Conference Opponents:
#13 North Carolina 86, Michigan 71. North Carolina opened up the game with a 17-5 finish to the first half, then blew UM out with 17-2 run early in the second. They shot 55% from the field after shooting 25% against MSU. Moritz Wagner led UM (6-2) with 20 points and 9 rebounds.

UCLA 75, Bakersfield 66. The Bruins (6-1) had a tough time with Bakersfield (4-4) but finally pulled it out. Titans are next on the UCLA agenda.

East Tennessee State 82, Fordham 77. Deonte Bradford had 22 points and 9 rebounds and Bo Hodges 20 and 8 as ETSU (4-3) beat the A10's Fordham (2-4) on the road.

UM-Dearborn 80, Northwestern Ohio 74.
Rochester 83, Siena Heights 73.

Other Games:
North Florida 84, Eastern Michigan 81 (OT). I was surprised EMU (5-2) lost this game, even on the road, even in OT. North Florida has played a tough schedule, but even so, they're just 2-7. James Thompson had 29 points and 15 rebounds for the Big Birds from Ypsi.

#1 Duke 91, Indiana 81. Once again Duke (9-0) fell behind in the second half, then pulled themselves together and played awesome to win. The ACC is kicking a** in the ACC/B10 Challenge this year.
#4 Villanova 90, Penn 62. Villanova hasn't lost a "Big 5" game since 2012.
#10 Miami 86, #12 Minnesota 81. Minnesota (7-1) takes its first loss.
#15 Gonzaga 103, Incarnate Word 68.
#23 TCU 87, Belmont 76.
#24 Alabama 77, Louisiana Tech 74. The defeat knocks Tech (5-1) from the unbeaten ranks.

Connecticut 77, Columbia 73 (OT). UConn needed OT to beat 1-5 Columbia. Not quite the mid-major win of the day for the Lions.
Florida International 79, Florida National 61. Globalism wins out.

Mid Major Win of the Day: Quinnipiac 68, Massachusetts 66.

Re: UIC. Road game. Dikembe Dixson played only 19 minutes, 15 of them in first half. 2 pts. 5 rebounds. 5 turnovers. 1-4 shooting. This is the third straight game in which Dixson's stats have been well below the standards set in his two prior seasons until his injury last year vs DePaul. I wonder if he has re injured his knee.

These are good points, but UIC played without Dixson last year and seemed better than they have so far this season. Tarkus Ferguson and Dominique Matthews have both really struggled as well.

Whatever, something ain't right with UIC.

It was good to see Carolina blows the door off of Michigan last night, a good bounce back win after being man handled by the Spartans on sunday night.

At one point, Dickie V was previewing the upcoming stretch of tough games for Michigan. The screen even showed the Detroit game -- giving Dickie V an opening to mention something nice. Instead he got hung up on the UCLA game and starting going on a Lavar Bell rant instead. Oh well.

I was at the Oakland game tonight, and they beat a top 100 RPI team tonight by 10 points and their PG Neely had 13 assists and 22 points! That is what you need from a point guard. Walker, Daniels, Hayes and Neely all had over 20 points. 35% for 3's and 50% overall. A good win.

The Titans are in trouble against OU. It is hard to beat a team, when you don't play team ball. The Titans will never get 26 assists against a good team.

Just sad, and poor coaching!

Thursday, Nov. 30:
Twenty teams started the night still unbeaten, with two losing.

Horizon:
Oakland 97, Texas Southern 87. Brailen Neely, whose playing time had been in a bit of a decline, had 22 points and 13 assists as OU (4-3) struggled past winless Texas Southern. Martez Walker also scored 22, Nick Daniels had 21, and Jalen Hayes 20 for the Grizzlies, who played without Kendrick Nunn. While Texas Southern is 0-7, it's worth noting that prior six opponents were Kansas, Gonzaga, Syracuse, Washington State, Ohio State, and Clemson, all played on the road. Those teams have a combined record of 35-5.

Non-Conference Opponents:
Seattle 66, Kennesaw State 54. Seattle squared its record at 4-4 behind Josh Herlihy, who had 13 points, 10 rebounds, and 7 assists. Kennesaw is 1-7.

Fort Wayne 99, Indiana-Kokomo 63. I still think Kokomo is a funny name for a place.

Other Games:
#3 Michigan State 81, #5 Notre Dame 63. Michigan State (6-1) played a near flawless first half, staved off a Notre Dame rally at the start of the second that got the Irish back to within single digits, and won going away. Cassius Winston had 17 points and 7 assists.

#9 Texas A&M 78, UT-Rio Grande 60.
#19 West Virginia 102, NJIT 69.
Seton Hall 89, #22 Texas Tech 79. Tech (6-1) was one of the unbeatens to fall tonight, losing in their first game as a ranked team since the 2010 season. Seton Hall, which fell out of the rankings this week, is 6-1.

Temple 76, South Carolina 60.

Battle of Futility: Santa Clara 89, Northern Arizona 57. Northern Arizona entered at 0-6, Santa Clara at 0-5 v. D1 (1-5 overall). Announced attendance of 1263 loyal Santa Clara fans.
Mid-Major Win of the Day: UAB 71, Memphis 56. UAB (5-3) snaps a 16 game losing streak to Memphis (3-2).

Great stuff. But what we really want to know is: What do you think of JJ, Jr?

Texas Southern, by the way, is winless. Their RPI--#93 entering the game, #125 after tonight's game--is currently decent because they've lost to good teams (by an average of over 20 points per game before tonight). Ken Pomeroy ranks them #241, and by comparison, ranks Fort Wayne #160 and Saint Louis #186. Sagarin ranks them #212, Fort Wayne #177, and St. Louis # 170. Mike Davis does a good job down there with very limited resources, but they are not, in any meaningful sense, a "top 100" team. They'll finish the year with an RPI rank around 200, maybe a bit better.

The Titans will never get 26 assists against a good team.


Apparently, too, never will Oakland. 13 vs Tooleedoo. 12 vs 'Cuse. 10 vs Kansas.

It's fish in a barrel with 96's posts. He might actually know hoops but he's so blinded by his anger/rage to the Jacksons it impacts his whole life. Each and every day he's thinking about the Jacksons. The Jacksons should pay 96 rent with how much they are livin' in his head - which is, in 96's words, "Just sad"

1) I bet a Calihan hot dog that 96 wasn't in Rochester last night
2) As Commish noted, it wasn't actually a 'good' win as it takes 2 seconds to realize their RPI doesn't truly belie Southern's strength
3) Last night appears to be Neely's first impactful game. Interestingly we didn't hear 96 talk about OU's PG play up until this one game, nor last season with Stevie Clark struggling
4) A high percentage of teams don't get 26 assists against a good team or against any team, whether you are UDM, OU, Duke or North Carolina. It takes merely a passing knowledge of college hoops to know that.

One mans opinion and I will say again I don't view myself as an expert. I watched the game on tv along with MSU and a few others last night. I would say that Texas Southern would finish third or maybe forth in the Horizon. They have a 7-2 guy that would be first team all league and a 5-7 guy who would probably be all league. The rest of there team is a bunch of athletes. They have a final 4 coach. They looked like a really good team and if 96 was at the game I can see why he said what he said. I don't think we can compare Oakland where they are with where we are in the second year of a new coach who hasn't even been at the last 5 games. Our assistant is in a tough spot. His sons on the team yet I'm sure he wants to do the right things in case BA doesn't come back. Who wouldn't want to be the head coach. I don't think you can fault him for that. I think we have to let it play out. It's a mess and they have to fix it so we can move on one way or the other. By the way Neely was good last night, but he was leading the leaguer in assist before last night. So he is a pass first point guard on a team that has good shooters.

Tried to watch MSU-ND on replay until it got way too late. MSU is excellent, Final Four caliber perhaps. Things are going so well for them right now that I wonder if they will hit a skid at the wrong time later on. Notre Dame didn't look like a No. 5 team in that game.
