hmmmm - maybe going from a more complex to a less complex name is a good strategy.

OU's whipping in the Carrier Dome is not wholly unreasonable given the complexity of the Cuse zone defense. It can give ACC teams fits when they venture up there to play and face that unique defense. Commish is also right that OU is still the cream of the HL crop -- both a tribute to OU's team this year and at the same time an indictment on how poorly the rest of the league is looking in the first couple games of the season.

On the Kampe front, it may be minor or it may not be but I just don't understand how he loads up minutes on a few guys. Nunn played the full 40 last night even though the route was on and they lost by 24. This is after he played 39 in the loss to Toledo 2 days prior, oh and all the while Nunn is nursing a hobbled ankle. Also, Walker played 38 vs Cuse and all 40 vs Toledo.

Annually he puts all the minutes in the hands of a few players, and it seemingly wears them out as they annually flame out towards the end of the season. Rest the kids, share the minutes, use the bench. It's a long season.

I watch that stuff very closely. The facts are Oakland doesn't flame out. They won their last 9 games last year to win the league. Then they lost in the Horizon league tourney they went to the NIT and won a game at a ACC arena. The year before they got to the finals of the Vegas tournament after losing in Horizon tournament. I think they beat Townson State and then ETSU before losing to Old Dominion. Before coming in the Horizon they had very good success in the summit tournament. They won it 3 times and got beat in the finals twice. So how do I know this, no I didn't have the Commish do his special research, I did it because I argue with my friends that are Detroit fans that we should be playing our best players more. We sub way to much, a couple years ago Ray was playing 12 guys. We had early leads, sub and loose all are momentum. Look at all the posts on this board, there are always posts about why is he in, why didn't he play more. Kampe plays his best players 40 minutes. Always has. we should too.

Against VaTech, Corey and Jackson played 33 minutes, Chatman 31.

I agree with Notso. I'd add that I don't think there is much evidence that Oakland has a late season injury problem.

Another note:

Kampe actually played 9 guys for at least 10 minutes last night, and another for 9 minutes. Only Kendrick Nunn (40), Martez Walker (38) and Isaiah Brock (27) played over 25 minutes. I probably would have pulled Nunn and Walker earlier, but Kampe presumably had his reasons. Maybe he wants to make sure everybody is conditioned and can go 38 come tournament time. Maybe he thinks Nunn and Walker--big time recruits who washed out of big time schools not because of ability but because of discipline issues--need to play against athletes the caliber of Syracuse's to avoid getting sloppy. Maybe he just didn't want to lose by 35, with what that might entail for his hoped for at-large bid or tournament seed in March, or the morale of his team. Maybe he wanted his bench to get experience playing with the two senior anchors of his lineup. Who knows.

I recall a couple years ago seeing a Kampe interview as to why he pulls his guys back when he team shoots free throws, basically ceding the rebound in the event of a miss. First, he noted he has a good free throw shooting team, so they don't miss much; Second, given the way the players line up around the key, the defense is set to box out and in fact garners the lion's share of rebounds off missed free throws. Thus, the odds of his team getting an offensive rebound are very slight--If OU shoots 20 free throws, they might be expected to get 1 offensive rebound off a miss, on which they then may or may not score. By pulling his players back, they can set the defense, thus improving the odds of a defensive stop, and--this is to the point of minutes played, finally--giving his players a quick little blow to catch their breath. This last, he says, is important to the style of ball and substitution patterns OU uses. Those factors, he thinks, save more points than he would score from lining up at the foul line, and allow him to keep his best players on the floor longer. One might not agree with that philosophy, but I thought it was a very well thought out response to conventional wisdom and interesting to hear.

If JJ Jr. is definitively one of our "best players" at this point in his career, we have more to worry about than substitution patterns. The fact that our 5'6" freshman guard has as many field goal attempts as anyone on the team is concerning... especially when he's shooting 28%. If this pattern continues, he could never crack 30% from the field and end up the Titan's all-time leading scorer. :D

Both Jackson and McFolley have started the season shooting poorly.

But when you look at shots per minutes played, here are the most frequent shooters on the Titans through the first 4 games.

Tariiq Jones: 1 shot every 2.38 minutes played.
Jaleel Hogan: 1 shot every 2.41 minutes played.
Corey Allen: 1 shot every 2.44 minutes played.
Kam Chatman: 1 shot every 2.54 minutes played.
Jermaine Jackson Jr.: 1 shot every 2.58 minutes played.
Josh McFolley: 1 shot every 2.77 minutes played.

The problem is that 62% of shots taken by JJJr are 3-point shots. That is by far the highest percentage among the starters. When JJJr drives, he has been fouled and shot free throws 4 times more frequently than McFolley and has made 19 of 20. JJJr has taken and made the most free throws on the team. He is creating 1 free throw for every 6.85 minutes played while McFolley is creating 1 free throw for every 20 minutes played. Plus he commits personal fouls about 50% less frequently than McFolley. JJR: 1 foul per every 15.2 minutes versus McFolley: 1 foul every 7.7 minutes.

I'm just crunching the data here. Not claiming that JJJr is shooting well. He is shooting 3-pt shots very, very poorly. He is shooting 45% from 2-point range which is the same as Corey. And, so far, both he and Corey are getting to the free throw line with remarkable efficiency. These are the numbers through the first 4 games of the regular season.

Tuesday, November 22.

Horizon:
IUPUI 67, Morehead State 61. IUPUI (2-2) scored the 1st 9 points of the game and never trailed. Aaron Brennan led the way with 15 points and 7 rebounds.

Youngstown State 91, Westminster 83. It was panic time in Youngstown as D-III Westminster took a 48-39 lead into the locker room at the half. YSU did rally, but it wasn't easy. It was 7 minutes into the second half before Youngstown took the lead and almost 10 minutes in before they took the lead for good. Freshman Garrett Covington and Senior Cameron Morse each had 18 for the Penguins (2-2).

Non-Conference Opponents:
Michigan 102, Chaminade 64. Next month will be the 35th anniversary of Chaminade's upset win over Ralph Sampson's #1 ranked Virginia Cavaliers. But no magic tonight: Michigan (4-1) led early and often, behind Charles Matthews' 22 points and 10 rebounds.

#23 UCLA 72, Wisconsin 70. Aaron Holiday scored 10 points in the final 5 minutes, including the game winner at the buzzer, as UCLA (4-1) rallied from a 6 point deficit to win. Holiday finished with 18 points. Wisconsin's Evan Happ led all scorers with 19. The Badgers are 2-3 after consecutive losses to ranked teams Xavier, Baylor, and UCLA.

Virginia Tech 99, Houston Baptist 73. Justin Bibbs had 25 points and Tech (4-1) shot 64% from the floor to romp.

Cornerstone 84, Siena Heights 63. Cornerstone (6-2) is the #1-ranked team in NAIA, although they'll lose that when the next rankings come out. Siena Heights falls to 2-3.

Indiana Tech 102, UM-Dearborn 67. Tech (7-0), which will enter the NAIA rankings at the next poll, outscored the Wolverines (5-3) 64-32 in the second half.

Other Games:
#3 Kansas 114, Texas Southern 71. Kansas dropped 66 points in the first half.
#6 Wichita State 80, Marquette 66.
#12 Cincinnati 75, Richmond 48. Cincy was impressive, leading by 30 points before the 1st half was over.
#13 Notre Dame 92, LSU 53. A surprisingly easy win for the Irish (5-0).
#14 Minnesota 100, Alabama A&M 57. Lotta lopsided scores tonight.
#16 Texas A&M 98, Penn State 87. A&M (4-0) hands Penn State (5-1) its first loss.
#19 Louisville 84, Southern Illinois 42.
#22 Baylor 65, Creighton 59. The Bears (5-0) hand Creighton (4-1) its first defeat.
#25 Alabama 77, UT-Arlington 76. Early RPI numbers are meaningless but fun, and UTA (2-1) entered this game with the #2 RPI in the nation, and they almost pulled off the Mid-Major win of the day. The Mavericks led by 5 at the break and had a chance for the win after Alabama turned it over with 17 seconds to play. UTA went for the last shot but Erick Neal's jumper at the buzzer was off the mark. Bama (4-0) was led by Collin Sexton with 29 points. Neal finished with 16 points and 12 rebounds for UTA.

Evansville 59, Fresno State 57. The Purple Aces were expected to be a wreck this season, but they're 5-0 after knocking off Fresno State (2-2) in Cancun.
Loyola 63, Mississippi Valley State 50. Loyola is also 5-0.
Valparaiso 88, Samford 67. Valpo, too.

Mid-Major Win of the Day:
South Dakota State 80, Iowa 72. Iowa is our loser in the mid-major win of the day two days running. As Wake Forest fans know, you're games are disqualified the third time you are victimized.

For Wednesday, November 22:

Detroit 72, St. Louis 70. Well. Things look a lot different now, don't they? Let's just not pull a Milwaukee and lose to Siena Heights.

UIC 107, Olivet Nazarene 83. This was a weird exhibition game, scheduled in mid season. It does not count UIC's record.

Non-Conference Opponents:
Michigan 68, VCU 60. Michigan (5-1) outscored VCU (3-3) 11-0 in the final two minutes to win a consolation game in the Maui Invitational. The Wolverines' Duncan Robinson led all scorers with 18 points.

Syracuse 72, Toledo 64. Toledo (3-1) was in this one into the second half, which is a lot better than OU did. Tre"Shaun Fletcher had 19 points and 11 rebounds for the Rockets. Frank Howard had 25 for 'Cuse (5-0).

#8 Kentucky 86, Fort Wayne 67. Fort Wayne (3-2) actually played pretty well, but Kentucky (5-1) shot 60% and dominated the boards, 44-21.

Troy 73, East Tennessee State 65. Nine for twenty foul shooting sunk ETSU (2-3).

Other Games of Interest:
Central Michigan 71, Sam Houston State 60. Central (3-1) kicked off the last edition of the Great Alaska Shootout, the original exempt event, with a win over Sam Houston ((2-2). Back in the day, the Great Alaska was, the premier Holiday tournament in the country--Sam Houston, and probably Central, would have not been invited. The list of champions includes, North Carolina State (the first champion and a winner twice), North Carolina (thrice) Kentucky (twice), Louisville, UCLA, Duke, Michigan State, Arizona, Iowa, Purdue (twice), Syracuse, Kansas, Marquette and more. But the event has found it increasingly difficult to recruit teams as the NCAA has legitimated numerous exempt events, not only outside the lower 48 but within the lower 48. The last six winners have been Murray State, Charlotte, Harvard, Colorado State, Middle Tennessee, and Iona. Over the last 5 years, a total of 8 participants have advanced to the NCAA, all of them mid-majors. In 1986, 7 of the 8 teams advanced to the NCAA, including Purdue, Arizona, Missouri, North Carolina, Villanova, and UNLV. Between 1979 and 1996, the defending NCAA champion took part five times.

This years field consists of Central and Sam Houston, plus Cal-Polytech, Charleston, Idaho, Santa Clara, Bakersfield, and of course the host, Alaska-Anchorage. The tournament ends after this season. It's a bit sad, if only because it reminds us that these exempt tournaments used to be actual tournaments, in which winners advanced and losers fell to the loser's bracket, in which the games were played on a neutral floor, and in which teams really cared about winning the event as a tournament, rather than a motley collection of games interspersed with others on the schedule. This is just about the last event to use a true "tournament" format, and it's obvious that the big boys are no longer willing to play in that format.

North Carolina State 90, #2 Arizona 84. Down in the Bahamas, the Wolfpack (5-0) went on a 13-1 run with just under five minutes left and shocked #2 Arizona (3-1). Braxton Beverly had 9 points in the decisive run. They' gotta be partyin on the beach tonight.

#5 Villanova 66, Western Kentucky 58.
#13 Notre Dame 67, #6 Wichita State 66. Wichita State shocked the Irish, racing to a big early lead that was 14 at the break. Notre Dame's comeback was slow and arduous, not the result of a quick run, but eventually the Irish got to within a point with just under 4 minutes to play. They cut it to one again with just under a minute left, and again with 14 seconds left on a Bonzie Coleson jumper. Wichita's Aaron Reeves missed the front end of a one and one with 13 seconds left, and Aaron Torres missed for the Irish with 6 seconds to play. But the Irish forced a jump ball on the rebound and kept possession thanks to the arrow. On the ensuing play, Shaq Morris fouled and with 1 second on the clock, Martinas Geben hit two free throws for an Irish win. It was Notre Dame's only lead except for 4-2.

#10 USC 88, Lehigh 63.
#11 Miami 57, La Salle 46.
#12 Cincinnati 78, Wyoming 53.
Tennessee 78, #18 Purdue 75 (OT). Not a pretty game--lots of fouls, turnovers, poor shooting--but it was an exciting one. Grant Williams gave Tennessee the lead with 14 seconds left in OT, and after Purdue missed a shot, James Daniel hit free throws to clinch it. Williams led Tennessee (3-0) with 22 points. Purdue takes its first loss against 4 wins.

Providence 66, Belmont 65. With the Titan game, this one wrapped up the "2K Wounded Warrior Classic." This was a nail biter all the way. Kyron Cartwright hit a three just before the final buzzer to give Providence (4-1) the win. Dylan Windler had 17 points and 10 rebounds for Belmont (4-2).

Mid Major Win of the Day:
Well, you've got Chaminade 96, California 72. And it wasn't as close as the final score suggests. Of course, Chaminade isn't a mid-major--they're a D-II team. That leaves us with Detroit 72, St. Louis 70.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Some college kids were miles from home to play basketball. No Horizon League action tonight, though, nor were any other 2017-18 Titan opponents in action.

Six unbeatens lost today, dropping the number from 58 to 52 schools without a loss.

Other Games:
#4 Michigan State 73, DePaul 51. It was tied at the half. State played without Miles Bridges.

#1 Duke 99, Portland State 81. Portland State entered at 4-0 with a win over Utah State, and they gave #1 Duke a tussle. The Vikings led by 4 at the half after having been up as much as 8, and held the lead well into the second half. On one occasion when Duke edged ahead, PSU came right back to retake the lead. Duke finally took the lead for good with under 14 minutes to play, but Portland State kept it close for several more minutes before Duke finally pulled away with about 8:30 to play. Marvin Bagley had 18 points and 15 rebounds for Duke (6-0). Deonte North came off the bench to score 24 for Portland State.

SMU 66. #2 Arizona 60. SMU (5-1) offset 30% shooting by winning the turnover war 20-8 and and grabbing 20 offensive rebounds. Arizona (3-2) drops two straight in the Bahamas.
#5 Villanova 85, Tennessee 76. A game of extremes:
First 6:30 minutes: Villanova 11, Tennessee 5.
Next 12 minutes: Tennessee 39, Villanova 18
Next 17 minutes: Villanova 48, Tennessee 18
Final 4:30 minutes: Tennessee 14, Villanova 8.

#7 Florida 101, Stanford 87.
#9 North Carolina 102, Portland 78.
#15 Xavier 83, George Washington 64.
#17 Gonzaga 86, Ohio State 59. OSU (4-1) isn't ready to return to national prominence yet, getting wiped out in Portland.
#21 St. Mary's 89, Harvard 71.
#23 West Virginia 84, Marist 78. Winless Marist (0-4) was tied with under six minutes left to play.

Texas 61, Butler 48. Texas is 4-0, trying to come back from last year's disastrous 11-22 season.
Arizona State 92, Kansas State 90. Kodi Justice scored 28 and Arizona State won an interesting game between two unbeatens.

Mid Major Win of the Day: Northern Iowa 64, North Carolina State 60. Several "high" mid-majors scored good wins today, but the best was probably Northern Iowa (5-1) knocking off North Carolina State in the Battle for Atlantis, 1 day after the Wolf Pack (5-1) beat #2 Arizona.

Honorable Mentions: Western Kentucky 77, #18 Purdue 73. Western Kentucky may not have Mitch Robinson, but today they had enough to defeat Purdue in the Bahamas. The Hilltoppers (3-2) grabbed the lead in the first two minutes and never relinquished it. 51% from the floor helped. If Purdue (4-2) hadn't lost yesterday to Tennessee, this would have won today's recognition as mid-major win of the day.

Rhode Island 75, #20 Seton Hall 74. Jared Terrell hit a jumper with 4 seconds left to give Rhody a big win over Big East member Seton Hall (4-1). Rhode Island had led by as much as 9, but failed to hit a field goal for nearly six and a half minutes in the second half to trail by one. It was a weird game--the two teams combined for 99 points in the first half, just 50 in the second. Terrell finished with 32 points for Rhode Island (3-1).

Also, D-II Alaska Anchorage beat Santa Clara (1-4) up in the Shootout.

In Greek mythology, the Titans were greater even than the gods. They ruled their universe with absolute power! Well that basketball court out there tonight, that's our universe. Let's rule it like Titans! (with apologies to coach boon)

Kampe wearing a suit tonight. Must have stumbled upon a killer Black Friday sale at the Burlington Coat Factory in Kansas.

Friday, November 24.

Horizon League:
#3 Kansas 102, Oakland 59. Kansas (5-0) looked every bit a Final Four team in dismantling the Grizzlies, whereas Oakland looked mentally beaten 8 minutes into the game. Kendrick Nunn scored 23 for Oakland (2-3), but got little help. Martez Walker was 1-9 from the floor, and the rest of the team not much better.

Wisconsin 71, Milwaukee 49. Milwaukee was off to a good start, but Wisconsin used the old Perry Watson formula--dominant the last 5 minutes of the first half and the first 5 of the second. That they did to the tune of a combined 18-4 edge, breaking a 21-all tie. The Badgers stop MIlwaukee's winning streak in the series at 1, and now lead the all-time series 32-2.

Central Connecticut State 74, Cleveland State 73. Another embarrassing loss for the Horizon. Central Connecticut jumped out to a 20 point lead. A long, slow CSU rally finally ended with the Vikes taking the lead with 2:30 left to play, but the Blue Devils (3-3) responded with a quick three and never trailed again. Dontel Highsmith led CSU (1-4) with 17.

Green Bay 57, Florida A&M 50. The Phoenix (2-2) shot just 31%, but outscored FAMU (1-6) 24-7 at the foul line for the win. Down 6 early in the second half, Green Bay took over with a 15-0 run, holding the Rattlers without a field goal for nearly 6 minutes. Khalil Small led Green Bay with 16 points, including 11 of 12 free throws.

Wright State 67, Gardner-Webb 47. Grant Benziner had 18 to lead Wright State ((2-3). The Raiders held Gardner-Webb (2-4) to just 29% shooting an only 6 offensive rebounds. Hard to win with those numbers.

Northern Colorado 80, Youngstown State 67. YSU (2-3) entered the game ranked 351st in RPI out of 351 D-I teams, and stayed winless against D-1 teams. Northern Colorado (3-2) opened an early 14 point lead, then fought off a rally that brought YSU to within 4 in the second half. Cameron Morse's shooting woes continued--he was 8-23 from the floor, 1-8 from three. For the year he's shooting 34.1% overall, 21.2% from three.

Titan Non-Conference Opponents:
Washington 89, Seattle 84. Seattle (2-4) couldn't beat Washington (3-2), but the Titans' loss to Seattle nevertheless looks a little bit better, or less bad anyway. The Redhawks hung with Washington all the way, never trailing by more than 7 and grabbing a couple of brief leads in the second half. A Matej Kavas jumper brought Seattle to within a point in the final minute, and not until Jaylen Nowell hit a pair of free throws with 5 seconds left was Washington out of the woods. We never should have lost to Seattle by 30, but they have played both Belmont and Washington tough in the last week.

Cornell 80, Toledo 77. After an impressive win over Oakland and a strong showing against Syracuse, the Rockets (3-2) take an embarrassing loss to Cornell (2-3). Nate Navigato had 22 points and Treshaun Fletcher 20 points and 12 rebounds for Toledo.

Other Games:
#4 Michigan State 77, Connecticut 57. Cassius Winston had 28 as the Spartans (4-1) pulled away in the second half.
Indiana 87, Eastern Michigan 67. A 19-3 run midway through the second half broke open a tight game in Bloomington, sending the Eagles (4-1) to their first defeat.
Central Michigan 56, Cal-Poly 53. CMU (4-1) advanced to the finals of the Great Alaska Shootout. Kevin McKay had 19 points and 7 rebounds.

#1 Duke 85, Texas 78 (OT). Texas (4-1) led by 12 at the break and 16 eight minutes into the second half, but Duke (7-0) turned up the intensity, dominated the paint, and made their free throws. Both teams missed chances for the win in the final seconds of regulation, and Duke controlled the OT. Marvin Bagley finished with 34 points and 15 rebounds for Duke.

#18 Purdue 89, #2 Arizona 64. Second ranked Arizona leaves the Battle for Atlantis with 3 defeats. Purdue escaped with a 2-2 mark in the tournament.

#5 Villanova 64, Northern Iowa 50. Villanova (6-0) wins the battle for Atlantis, beating Lafayette, Western Kentucky, Tennessee, and now NIU (5-2). That's a good run, but note that Purdue, Arizona, North Carolina State, and SMU were all cleared out of the field by upsets before having the chance to face the Wildcats.

#9 North Carolina 87, Arkansas 68. UNC knocks Arkansas (4-1) from the unbeaten ranks.
#14 Minnesota 69, Massachusetts 51.
Arizona State 102, #15 Xavier 86. Tra Holder had 40 for unbeaten ASU. The Sun Devils (6-0), who trailed at halftime, shot 68% in the second half, 58% from three.
#16 Texas A&M 81, Pepperdine 65.
#7 Florida 111, #17 Gonzaga 105 (2OT). Shoulda stayed up for this one. There's no real goat in a game like this, but Gonzaga's Silas Melson missed a jumper for the win with 4 seconds left in regulation, then made a layup to tie it with two seconds left in the first OT but missed a foul shot that would have won it. Jonathan Williams had 39 points and 12 boards for Gonzaga (4-1), while Jalen Hudson led Florida (5-0) with 35 points.

#19 Louisville 84, St. Francis (Pa.) 72.
#20 Seton Hall 72, Vanderbilt 59.
Washington State 84, #21 St. Mary's 79. Unbeaten Washington State (6-0) pulled away late.
#23 West Virginia 83, Central Florida 45.
#25 Alabama 71, BYU 59.

Rutgers 61, East Carolina 47. Rutgers has played a complete creampuff schedule (CCNY, Central Connecticut, Cleveland State, Coppin State, Bryant, and now ECU), but they are 6-0. As Youngstown's new Coach, Jerrod Calhoun, has argued, sometimes you have to purge the disease of losing from a program. One way to do that is to schedule Ws.

Butler 71, Portland State 69.
Valparaiso 77, Kent State 67. Valpo is 6-0. Southfield's Bakari Evelyn had 13 points and 7 assists in the win. Kent State is 3-2.

Battle of Futility In a noon start in Baltimore (more than 550 miles from either campus), RPI #316 Presbyterian takes out #319 Chicago State, 75-73, before a "crowd" of 113 in the 4000+ capacity RAC Arena. It's the first DI win for either team. From the box score, it looks like it was actually an exciting game, if you could bring yourself to care about either team.

Mid-Major Win of the Day:
St. Bonaventure 63, Maryland 61. The Terps entered at 5-0. Courtney Stockard hit a game winning layup just before the final buzzer for the Bonnies' win.
Honorable Mention: Long Beach State 74, Oregon State 69. Always exciting for a Big West team to beat a PAC 12 team.

Arkansas, Central Florida, Connecticut, Eastern Michigan, Georgia, Gonzaga, Hawaii, Maryland, St. John's, St. Mary's, Texas, and Xavier fell from the unbeaten ranks, leaving 38 unbeaten teams.
