Trying to finalize the contracts now, but there's a lot of tough bargaining! Should be completed by opening day!

The 2018 Scoreboard is here, brought to you by Packard Automobiles: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eMgriMYCtNc
"Ask the man who drives one."

Western Michigan 89, Detroit 76. Western is a good passing team, and used that and the size of Seth Dugan to shred Detroit's zone. On offense, the Titans got pretty good shots and lots of offensive rebounds, but just couldn't put the ball in the bucket, shooting 20% in the first half. They shot much better in the second half, but couldn't get the defensive stops to close the gap. So it was lopsided, but I think the signs were there that we really can do better. I was pleased that the Titans showed some fight in the second half, though they couldn't get the key basket that would have started to pressure the Broncos. McFolley looks a lot older. Brandon looks like a future rebounding machine. Reminds me a bit of Dennis Rodman, with long arms, leaping ability, very active. Davis has a quick shot release. Although I don't know, I suspect his 32 points is the most ever for Titan freshman in his first game. It may be the most for any Titan making a D-I debut since Spencer Haywood scored 36 against Aquinas in the season opener 50 years ago. Dugan's final line, by the way, was 32 points, 22 rebounds, and 6 assists--a Spencer Haywood type stat line.

Xavier 82, IUPUI 69. IUPUI gave Xavier an unexpected tussle. After spotting the Musketeers the game's first 10 points and falling behind by 18, the Jags closed the half with a 12-0 run to make a game of it. An 8-3 run to open the second half put IUPUI in front, but Xavier quickly regained the lead and gradually built it to 17 points. Ryan Welage had 21 second half points to keep Xavier from faltering. Last year's D-II player of the year, Ferris State transfer Zach Hankins, had 6 point and 7 rebounds for Xaiver. IUPUI got 21 points from sophomore Jaylen Minnett.

Notre Dame 84, UIC 67. UIC never really challenged the Irish, and trailed by 23 at halftime. Marcus Ottey had 17 points for UIC.

Boston College 73, Milwaukee 53. Milwaukee stormed out to a 10 point halftime lead, increased to 13 early in the second half, but BC held MIlwaukee to 4 of 37 shooting the rest of the way and got the win. Darius Roy led Milwaukee with 15 points.

Davidson 83, Cleveland State 63. CSU came up flat in its season opener. Detroit freshman Rashad Williams had a good game, though, leading CSU with 15 points, including 5 of 7 fro three.

Pittsburgh 69, Youngstown State 53. It took Pitt more than two and a half minutes to score, but after that they never trailed. YSU shot just 8 of 38 from 3 points. Kendale Hampton led the Penguins with 15 points.

Northern Kentucky 102, Wilmington 38. Led by Jalen Tate's 17 points, twelve Norse scored as NKU beat up D-III Wilmington.

Green Bay 110, Wisconsin Lutheran 54. Green Bay walloped outmanned Wisconsin Lutheran, a D-III team that finished 8-17 last year, in the first game of the 2018-19 NCAA season. It was 59-20 at the half. 'Nuff said. Everyone played but the redshirts, with 9 players scoring between 9 and 14 points.

Oakland 99, Kalamazoo 45. The was actually an exhibition game on OU's schedule.

Non-Conference Opponents
Eastern Michigan 77, Rochester 67. Not an impressive debut, but EMU got the W. Paul Jackson led with 27.
Temple 75, La Salle 67. Sophomore Nate Pierre-Louis had 14 points and 13 rebounds as the Titans' next opponent, Temple, won in a Big 5 match up in Philly.

St. John's 76, Loyola (Md.) 55. The Greyhounds will be the Titans' first home opponent later this month. Junior Andrew Kostecka led Loyola with 17.
Akron 70, Cedarville 50. But Cedarville alum Mike DeWine was elected Ohio governor.
Bowling Green 91, Tiffin 52.
Hampton 110, Mid-Atlantic Christian 58. BGSU and Hampton blitzed small neighbors. The Titans will play one of Hampton or Bowling Green on November 20.

Other Games of Interest:
#1 Kansas 92, #10 Michigan State 87. Kansas led by double digits most of the game, and held off a late rally that brought the Spartans to within three.
#19 Michigan 63, Norfolk State 44. The Wolverines held Norfolk to 13 first half points.
Central Michigan 98, Concordia 67.

#4 Duke , #2 Kentucky . Wow. Just, wow.
#3 Gonzaga 120, Idaho State 79. The Zags were symmetrical, scoring 60 points in each half. Rui Hachamura led the rout with 33 points.
#5 Virginia 73, Towson 42. UVa is always one of the nation's top defensive teams.
#6 Tennessee 86, Lenoir-Rhyne 41.
#7 Nevada 86, BYU 70. Senior Jordan Caroline had 25 points, and Nevada pulled away in the second half.
#8 North Carolina 78, Wofford 66. Wofford's a pretty good team with a big time player in Fletcher McGee, who averaged over 22 points last year. They cut a 13 point deficit to 3 in the second half, but couldn't get closer.
#9 Villanova 100, Morgan State 77.
#11 Auburn 101, South Alabama 58.
#14 Oregon 84, Portland State 57.
#16 Syracuse 66, Eastern Washington 34. Thirty four points?
#17 Florida State 81, Florida 60. The Seminoles slaughter the Gators in the in-state rivalry.
#21 UCLA 96, Fort Wayne 71.
#22 Clemson 100, Citadel 80.
#23 LSU 94, Southeast Louisiana 63. LSU was up by 30 at halftime.
#24 Purdue 90, Fairfield 57. Carsen Edwards had 30 points in the win.
#25 Washington 73, Western Kentucky 55. Washington looked good in a win over Western Kentucky. Senior Noah Dickerson had 16 points and 6 rebounds, besting WKU's touted freshman Charles Bassey, who had 12 points and 11 rebounds but fouled out trying to stop Dickerson.

Buffalo 82, St. Francis (Pa.) 67. There are high hopes for Buffalo this year. Today they were the first team of the 2018-19 season to beat another D-I opponent. One-time Titan recruiting target Nick Perkins had 16 points and 9 rebounds for the Buffs.
Loyola 76, UMKC 45.
Marquette 67, UMBC 42. The Eagles had no trouble with last year's NCAA darlings.
Texas Southern 72, Baylor 69. Mike Davis's old school upset a Big 12 team, after trailing by 17 in the second half.
Louisiana Tech 71, Wichita State 58. Surprise!
Texas Tech 87, Incarnate Word 37. Tech outscored Incarnate Word 48-7 in the second half.

Wednesday, November 7:

Wright State 96, Western Carolina 73. Finally, a Horizon team beats a D-I opponent after the conference went 0-6 on Tuesday. It was pretty clear, frankly, the conference overscheduled in its openers, but I have no idea how this all plays out in the NCAA's new rating system. Anyway, Wright State had no trouble with the Catamounts, leading 52-26 by halftime. Drake transfer Billy Buckets Wampler had 26 points, Loudon Love had 17, and freshmen Skyelar Potter and Malachi Smith added 16 and 10, respectively, in the blowout. I think there were two questions about Wright State this year--how good was Wampler, and could any of its freshmen step up to provide some depth on a talented but thin squad. Both questions were answered tonight.

Non Conference Titan Opponents:
Dayton 78, North Florida 70. Freshman Obi Toppin, thrust into a starting role by an injury to star senior Josh Cunningham, responded with 18 points and 10 rebounds as Dayton overcame a stubborn North Florida squad.

Ohio U. 97, Wilberforce 61. Sophomore Jason Carter led OU with 17 points and 13 rebounds.

Other Games of Interest
#20 Texas Christian 66, Cal-State Bakersfield 61. Bakersfield led by 9 at the half and TCU needed a 13-4 rally over the final 4 minutes and change to get the win.

Ohio State 64, Cincinnati 56. Ohio's two major powers met for the first time in a non-tournament setting in 97 years. Ohio State led most of the game in spoiling the re-opening of Cincinnati's renovated home arena. OSU held the Bearcats to 4 of 29 shooting in the first half, and held off a late Cincinnati rally that cut a 16 point deficit to four in the final minutes. Two of the four meetings between Cincy and OSU since 1920 came in the NCAA title games of 1961 and 1962.

Bucknell 88, St. Bonaventure 85 (OT). Bucknell erased a 13 point deficit with 12 minutes left in regulation, and went on to get the upset in Oleans.

Georgia Southern 139, Carver College 51. Georgia Southern leads the nation in scoring.
St. Francis (NY) 92, Medgar Evers 42. So Wilberforce, named for abolitionist William Wilberforce, Carver, named for famed African-American scientist George Washington Carver, and Medgar Evers, named for the the great civil rights leader, all get creamed by D-I teams tonight. What kind of message are we sending to our kids?

St. Edwards College 77, Texas-San Antonio 76. St Edwards, a D-II school in Austin, provided the year's first upset of a D-I program by a non-DI program. A freshman named Luke Pluyman made 5 consecutive free throws in the final 29 seconds, including the game winners with 2 seconds left to play. Luke is probably feeling about as good tonight as he's ever felt in his life.

Thursday, Nov. 8:
A pretty quiet night in college hoops, as most teams are off until the week-end after playing their openers on Tuesday or, in some cases, Wednesday. Nothing from the Horizon, and no Titan non-conference opponents in action, either.

A Couple Games I noticed:

Notre Dame 89, Chicago State 62. It's probably fitting that Chicago State becomes the first D-I team to lose twice this year. I doubt that Tracy Dildy misses the job.
Illinois 99, Evansville 60.
Arkansas-Little Rock 101, Southeastern Oklahoma State 92 (OT). Dennis Rodman's NAIA alma mater nearly pulled off the upset of the day, but UALR scored the final 6 points in regulation and the first 5 in OT, and went on to win.

Friday, November 9:

Temple 83, Detroit 67. The Titans did some good things and looked better tonight, on the road, against an American Athletic Conference team that's probably NIT bound or possibly capable of an NCAA bid. Davis, Brandon, and McFolley played very well but didn't get any help on the offensive end. Temple's size and some hot shooting by Shizz Alston (30 points, 7 of 12 from behind the arc) wore us down on defense. And kudos to McFolley, who moved past Ray Albee and Larry Salci tonight into 36th place on the Titans' all-time scoring list.

Toledo 87, Oakland 86. In Oakland, Jalen Sanford scored 30 points and Toledo used a 13-1 run just after the mid-point of the second half to take the lead for good, holding off a late OU rally. Willie Jackson supported Sanford with a double-double and all 5 Toledo starters scored in double figures. Oakland got 30 points and 9 rebounds from Xavier Hill-Maas, who seems on the verge of a break-out year. They had a nice paid attendance of 3841 at the McRena for Oakland's season opener.

Northern Kentucky 88, Northern Illinois 85 (2 OT). Norfolk State transfer Zaynah Robinson hit a pair of free throws with 5 seconds left in the second overtime to seal NKU's win. Drew McDonald had 28 points and 14 rebounds for the Norse (2-0). Dantez Walton added 16 and 9.

Indiana State 78, Green Bay 74. Jordan Barnes scored 8 points in the game's final 1:14 to help the Sycamores (1-1) hold off the Phoenix (1-1) in Green Bay. Barnes finished with 29 points. Sandy Cohen led Green Bay with 16.

Radford 88, UIC 78. UIC is supposed to be one of the better Horizon teams. Gosh, is this league terrible--a shadow of the league from 5 years ago. In fairness, Radford did win 23 games and reach the NCAAs last year. But the Horizon is off to a 2-10 start against D-I teams. Tarkus Ferguson and Marcus Ottey paced UIC (0-2) with 22 and 18 points, respectively.

Other Titan Non-Conference Opponents:
Eastern Michigan 66, Drexel 62. Paul Jackson had 20 points for Eastern (2-0). The EMUs iced it with two free throws by Boubacar Toure with 12 seconds left.

Yale 76, California 59. Yale was all over Cal tonight, opening up a 17 point lead in the first half and cruising home in the season opener for both teams.

St. John's 84, Bowling Green 80. Bowling Green led by as many as 11 in the second half before St. John's rallied. Mustapha Heron, who finished with 28 points, hit three free throws in the final 6 seconds to keep St. John's (2-0) on top. Redshirt soph Justin Turner, from Detroit, led BGSU (1-1) with 24.

VCU 69, Hampton 57. Hampton (1-1) shot just 29% for the game. Jermaine Morrow had 25 points in the losing cause.

Other Games of Interest
Central Michigan 101, Chicago State 60. Junior Chris Jacob, whom some hoped might follow Tracey Dildy to Detroit, had 19 points and 13 rebounds for Chicago State (0-3), his second consecutive double-double. CMU is 2-0.

#2 Kentucky 71, Southern Illinois 59.
#6 Tennessee 87, Louisiana 65
#7 Nevada 83, Pacific 61.
#8 North Carolina 116, Elon 67.
#11 Auburn 88, #25 Washington 66. After the 22 point lost, Washington's bus to the airport caught fire, forcing the Huskies to wait by the side of the road at 1:30 a.m.

#12 Kansas State 56, Kennessaw State 41.
#14 Oregon 81, Eastern Washington 47.
#15 Virginia Tech 87, Gardner Webb 59.
#18 Mississippi State 95, Austin Peay 67.
#21 UCLA 91, Long Beach State 80. The Bruins had a difficult time shaking Long Beach tonight. Even a 16-2 run starting midway through in the second half didn't do it, as Long Beach fought back with a 12-0 run in a span of just over 2 minutes to close back to within 5. But the Bruins finally closed it out.
#22 Clemson 71, North Carolina Central 51.
#23 LSU 97, UNC-Greensboro 91.

Wichita State 83, Providence 80.
Northeastern 81, Harvard 71.
Indiana 80, Montana State 35. Good defense.
Texas 73, Arkansas 71 (OT).

Mid-Major Upset of the Day: Buffalo 99, #13 West Virginia 94, in overtime in Morgantown. The Buffs opened the season with votes in both the AP and the Coaches poll, and tonight they showed they deserved them. Buffalo's senior star CJ Massingale was magnificent, scoring 13 points, including a 3 pointer to force overtime, as Buffalo came back from a 13 point deficit in the final 7:06 of regulation. Massingale then added 9 points in the overtime period. For the night, he finished with 43 points and 14 rebounds for Buffalo (2-0).

Honorable mentions:
Yale over Cal (see above);
Furman 60, Loyola 58. Clay Mounce dunked it in with under 2 seconds to play to give Furman the upset of defending Final Four member Loyola.
Stony Brook's 83, South Carolina 81. Akwasi Yeboah led the Sea Wolves (2-0) to an upset of South Carolina in Columbia, SC., with 24 points and 11 rebounds.
Longwood 63, Richmond 58.

Saturday, November 10:

Horizon League:
The Horizon's terrible, horrible, no good, very bad opening week continued on Saturday. The conference is now 3-14 against D-I opponents.

Akron 98, Youngstown State 69. Akron, Youngstown, Kent State and CSU squared off in the Coaches for Cancer double header, this year in Cleveland. Together, these four schools will make up 20% of the Titans schedule this year. The opener between the Zips and the Penguins was a 2-point game at the half, but all Akron after the break. Akron also led Cedarville by two at the break in its season opener, before winning by 20. Five Zips scored in double figures, including one of the better names in college hoops this year, Tyler Cheese. But Akron's other all-name candidate, Channel Banks, was limited to 8. Freshman Olemide Pedersen looked good for YSU, with 18 points and 10 rebounds.

Kent State 83, Cleveland State 79. Kent State never trailed, but until the final buzzer they could never quite put CSU away, either. The Vikings missed two shots for the lead in the final minute and Kent finally sealed it when Stefan Kenic missed a three with six seconds left. Tyree Appleby had 28 points for the Vikings. Kent State, whom the Titans play later this month, was led by Jalen Avery with 23, including the free throws to clinch it. The game was in Cleveland, so it's even worse for the Horizon.

North Dakota 63, Milwaukee 60. It's tough to keep all the Dakota schools straight--which ones have been good lately? Well, it's not North Dakota, which lost 20 games last year. But they were too good for Milwaukee tonight, winning in Milwaukee. The Hawks took the lead about 90 seconds in and never surrendered it, though a late Milwaukee rally cut the deficit from 15 to 1 point in the final eight minutes. Darius Roy had 18 for Milwaukee, and DeAndre Abram added 12 points and 12 rebounds.

Murray State 73.Wright State 54. Meanwhile, the Horizon's pre-season favorite, Wright State, trailed for all but a few minutes against Murray State. A Wright State rally cut the lead to 4 points about 7 minutes into the second half, but the Racers responded with a 9-1 run and won going away. The Racers made 54% of their shots, including 10 of 22 from behind the arc, while holding WSU to 3 of 18 from deep. For the Racers, juco Ja Morant had 26 points and 11 assists in his D-I debut. Mark Hughes had 16 and Loudon Love 15 for Wright State, but the rest of the team shot 7 for 33 from the floor.

IUPUI 71, Eastern Illinois 65. It's bad news when you're counting on IUPUI to preserve some honor for the Horizon with a non-conference win, but that's where we are, and the Jags delivered. IUPUI led all of the second half, by as many as 14, but Eastern didn't quit and twice pulled to within 1 possession in the final minute. Camron Justice had 21 points and Elijah Goss 10 points and 10 rebounds for IUPUI (1-1).

Other Titan Non-Conference Opponents
Mississippi 90, Western Michigan 64. The Titan loss to Western looks a bit worse after the Broncos were stampeded by Ole Miss today. The Rebels (1-0) led by 21 at halftime, and held Seth Dugan to 10 points.

Butler 90, Miami 68. Detroit's next opponent won its season opener with ease. The Bulldogs shot 60% from the floor.

Dayton 76, Coppin State 46. Dayton held Coppin State to 3 of 24 from behind the arc, and won easily in Dayton. Freshman Obediah Toppin led Dayton with 19 points, and junior Ryan Mikesell added 18 points and 10 rebounds in the win.

Xavier 91, Evansville 85. Tyrique Jones had 19 points, 20 rebounds, and 4 blocks for Xavier (2-0). Sophomore Paul Scruggs had 24 and Ferris State transfer Zach Hankins added 14.

Toledo 99, Wilberforce 58. Just seems an odd coincidence that little Wilberforce has already played two teams on the Titans' schedule, Ohio U. and now Toledo. It didn't go well for the Bulldogs either time. Willie Jackson led Toledo with 17 points and 10 rebounds.

Other Games of Note
#19 Michigan 56, Holy Cross 37. Michigan made just 5 of 24 shots in the first half as Holy Cross took a 24-18 lead into the locker room. But the Wolverines (2-0) turned the tables after the break, outscoring the Crusaders 32-8 to start the half, and holding Holy Cross (1-1) to 13 points on 20% shooting in the half. Freshman Ignas Brazdeikis spurred the second half rally by scoring 15 points in the first 4:15 of the half.

Texas Southern at #3 Gonzaga. Texas Southern, already with a win at Baylor, was out on the coast for a late game at Gonzaga. The Zags led by 26 at the Commissioner's bedtime.
#9 Villanova 86, Quinnipiac 53. The margin of error is +-4.5 %.
#16 Syracuse 84, Morehead State 70.
#24 Purdue 84, Ball State 75. Ball State was still tied four minutes into the second half, but a 17-2 run put Purdue in charge and Ball State (1-1) couldn't mount a comeback.

Lafayette 77, La Salle 76. So La Salle lost to Temple by just 8, but then lost to Lafayette, which had already lost to St. Peter's, which lost tonight to Delaware, which lost 20 games last year. Somewhere in there, this makes me even more concerned that it could be a uniquely awful year for our Titans.

Mid-Major Upset of the Day: Charlotte 66, Oklahoma State 64. Oklahoma State is projected for the bottom of the Big 12, but they're still Big 12.

Sunday, November 11

Iowa 93, Green Bay 82. The Horizon drops to 3-15 against D-I opposition, though at least this was against a Big 10 team on the road, and Green Bay gave 'em a pretty good game. Iowa led by 1 at the half, and Green Bay last tied a bit over 5 minutes into the second half. Then it was a slow, grinding win for Iowa. The difference was at the foul line, where Iowa (2-0) took 45 shots to Green Bay's 16, and outscored the Phoenix 34-11. Might have been some home cookin' there. Sandy Cohen had 17 points and 8 assists for Green Bay (1-2), and Manny Patterson also had 17 points.

Northern Kentucky 99, Wabash 59. Stick to non-D1 opponents--that's the ticket! At 86-35 and nine minutes left, NKU called off the dogs.

Titan Non-Conference Opponents:
Eastern Michigan 97, Goshen 74. Rob Murphy's scheduling philosophy is more or less the opposite of Coach Davis--he looks to pile up home games and wins. As it has almost every year under Coach Murphy, EMU scheduled the maximum 4 regular season games with non-DI opponents. The Eagles are now 3-0, with two of those cupcakes under their belts. But it gets tougher--Eastern is at Duke on Wednesday.

Dartmouth 82, Loyola, Md. 80. Dartmouth (1-1) scored the game's first 13 points, but Loyola (0-2) slowly fought back and took it's first lead with just over 3 minutes to play. Dartmouth, which for the game shot 83% from the free stripe, then won a free throw shooting contest down the stretch. A junior forward with the catchy name of Chuck Champion led Loyola with 17 points and 11 rebounds. We'll see Chuck and the Greyhounds in Calihan a week from Monday for our home opener.

Other Games of Interest
#10 Michigan State 106, Florida Gulf Coast 82. 25 points and 10 rebounds for Nick Ward.
#4 Duke 94, Army 72. Krzyzewski shows no mercy for the old alma mater. 27 points and 16 rebounds for Duke's Zion Williamson.
#5 Virginia 76, George Washington 57.
#17 Florida State 80, Tulane 69.
#18 Mississippi State 77, Hartford 59.
#20 TCU 79, Oral Roberts 62. In a rare role reversal, mainstream protestant denomination dominates Evangelicals on a Sunday.

Ohio State 107, Fort Wayne 61. Fort Wayne's Jon Konchar is one of the country's unheralded stars. Now a senior, he's averaged 14.3 points, 8.7 rebounds, 3.8 assists, and 2 steals per game in three years in which he's never missed a game. He almost never fouls, plays solid defense, and has shot 43.0% from three point range over his career. Each year, it seems like Fort Wayne puts less talent on the floor around him. Tonight he led Fort Wayne with 13 points, 9 rebounds, and 3 assists, but just got no help.

Creighton 75, East Tennessee State 69. ETSU has won 76 games over the past three years, so no patsy for Crieghton.

Southern Miss 74, Southern Methodist 64. Not-SMU beats SMU. Tim Jankovich went 39-5 with the guys Larry Brown recruited (though whatever means) to SMU, but 17-16 last year as they exited the program. It will be interesting to see if he can keep up Brown's momentum with his own recruits.

Colgate 73, Cornell 57. Eggheads.

Mid-Major Upset of the Day: The closest thing to a mid-major upset is CUSA member Florida Atlantic's win over AAC member Central Florida, 80-79.

November 12

Butler 84, Detroit 63. Antoine Davis's high flying act landed with a thud in the first half, although he had a good second half. The Titans just don't have enough horses, especially when Davis and McFolley aren't shooting well. Josh moved into the #35 spot all-time for Titan scorers, passing Karl Pickett, and the #5 spot for steals, passing Roy Simms, John Long, and Terry Tyler.

Duquesne 89, UIC 88 (OT). UIC (0-3) let this one get away. The Flames scored the game's first 5 points and led--often by double digits--until the 0:01 mark of the second half, when Sincere Carry (how's that for a name!) hit a layup to force the OT. Carry, a freshman guard, finished with 32 points, 8 assists, and 6 rebounds for Duquesne. Michiganders Eric Williams and Lamar Norman had 18 points and 11 rebounds, and 11 points, respectively, for the Dukes. For UIC, Tarkus Ferguson had a double-double with 18 points and 11 assists. Very disappointing loss for UIC, and Horizon drops to 3-17 against D-I competition.

Youngstown State 106, Heidelberg 83. The Penguins (1-2) kick some small college butt behind 21 points from Garrett Covington.

Titan Non-Conference Opponents:
Ohio U. 81, Campbell 73. Jason Carter led OU with 24 points.

VCU 72, Bowling Green 61. We might face Bowling Green (1-2) a week from tomorrow, depending on how things go in the first round of the Legends Classic regional; in which case we'll have to deal with Bowling Green's 6-10 Demajeo Wiggins, who had 18 points and 13 rebounds tonight--his third straight double-double.

Other Games:
#2 Kansas 84, Vermont 68. Lagerald Vick had 32 points for the winners.
#7 North Carolina 90, Stanford 72. UNC (3-0) opened its home schedule after two road games--the first time it has opened with two road games in 32 years. More remarkable, the games were at Wofford and Elon. We might condemn Roy Williams for not doing anything like this before, but then, what big-time coach would. So let's credit him for doing it this year.

#12 Kansas State 64, Denver 56.
#25 Buffalo 62, Southern Illinois 53. Buffalo played for the first time ever as a nationally ranked team, and ground down SIU. Michigander Nick Perkins had 11 rebounds for the Bulls, who rose into the ranks of the ranked with last week's win at West Virginia.

Niagara 80, St. Bonaventure 72. In 1970, this meeting of upstate New York rivals would have been a really important game.
Minnesota 78, Utah 69.
Belmont 92, Middle Tennessee State 73. Over the last 8 years, each of these schools has averaged 25 wins a season. Dylan Windler had 34 points and 11 rebounds for Belmont (2-0).

UT-RGV 76, TAMU-CC 69. If you can even figure out who these two initial-laden D-I schools are, more power to ya.
Citadel 148, Mid-Atlantic Christian 75. Mid-Atlantic has already played three D-I teams this year, giving up an average of 122 points per game. There oughta be a law...

Tuesday, November 13

The Horizon's non-conference disaster continued apace, as both Oakland and Milwaukee coughed up leads late in the second half.

Western Michigan 85, Oakland 77 (OT). Well, here's a point of comparison: Western (2-1) beat us pretty easy, but had to go to overtime to beat OU (0-2). Oakland led by 9 at the half and 11 with just under ten minutes left, but a 13-2 WMU run, capped by 7 straight points by Mike Flowers, tied it with about 6 minutes to play. The Broncos kept up the pressure, opening a 5 point lead with 30 seconds left, but Oakland got an unusual 5 point trip down the floor to gain the overtime. Jordan Nobles was fouled on a three point attempt, and after making two free throws, missed the third. Oakland got the rebound and Kamari Newman nailed a trey to tie it. But it was to no avail, as Western ran away in the OT. Overall, Western outscored OU 38-19 over the final 19 minutes of play, including the extra period. Western had a balanced attack, with 20 points each from Kawanise Wilkins and Seth Dugan and 19 from Flowers. Newman had 18 for Oakland. As against Detroit, Western controlled the boards, 49-37.

Florida International 86, Milwaukee 83. After a see-saw battle in Miami, Florida International (3-0) won it on an old-fashioned three-point play by Osasumwen Osaghae. Darius Roy had 19 for Milwaukee. Osaghae finished with 10 points and 15 rebounds.

Cleveland State 94, Urbana 65. Sure, Horizon teams are a combined 3-19 against D-I competition, but we're killing the little guys. Rashad Williams, a freshman from Detroit, led CSU with 14 points as Coach Felton spread the minutes around.

Other Titan Non-Conference Opponents:
California 80, Hampton 66. Cal, our next opponent, rolled out to a 17 point halftime lead, but Hampton (1-2) rallied to cut the deficit to 5 early in the second half. Cal's young team may still have felt a bit of lag after playing Friday night in Shanghai, China. After getting back into it, Hampton kept it close for a while but slowly faded. Jermaine Marrow had 26 for Hampton. Paris Austin led Cal with 20.

Temple 81, Georgia 77. Titan slayer Shizz Alston had 25 points as Temple (3-0) opened a 12 point lead in the first half, and then fended off a series of Georgia (1-1) rallies.

Wisconsin 77, Xavier 68. Wisconsin (2-0) broke open a close game with an 18-4 run to start the second half. Ethan Happ led the Badgers with 30 points and 13 rebounds. Sophomore Naji Marshall led Xaiver (2-1) with a career high 24 points and 13 boards.

Loyola (Md.) 91, Delaware State 62. A 56 point second half for Loyola (1-2).
Kent State 90, Shawnee State 69. Shawnee led early and was within 6 at the break, but Kent State (2-0) started the second half with a 14-2 spurt and coasted home.

Other Games That Caught My Eye:
#5 Tennessee 66, Georgia Tech 53. Tech (1-1) shot just 27% overall, 16% from three.
#22 LSU 85, Memphis 76.

Georgetown 88, Illinois 80.
Providence 70, Holy Cross 61. Holy Cross (1-2) has been recruiting Michigan lately, with some success.
Canisius 82, Bucknell 73. Canisius, the last D-I team to open its 2018-19 season, made it worth the wait for their fans. Canisius made 20 of 25 foul shots, to Bucknell's 11 of 20--exactly the difference in the final score. A reminder that we need to shoot fouls better.

Mid-Major Upset of the Day:
Charleston 66, Rhode Island 55.
Runner Up: Harvard 74, Massachusetts 71.
Honorable Mention: Cal Baptist 70, Oral Roberts 69. Cal Baptist is transitioning to D-I this year, and beats its first D-I opponent of the season.

Wednesday, November 14.

I remember when the season didn't start until December. And get off my lawn...

IUPUI 76, BC 69. Camron Justice scored 29 points as IUPUI caught BC napping in Beantown. A nice birthday present for coach Jason Gardner, who turned 38 today. I think I said in my season preview that IUPUI was being underrated. If I didn't, I'll go back and edit it to say that. Evan Hall helped Justice with 16 points and 10 rebounds. Justice went 13-13 from the foul stripe.

Wright State 84, Toledo 74. Cole Gentry--not heretofore a big scorer--dumped in 30 points as Wright State beat a solid Toledo squad. Wright's big three of Gentry, Loudon Love (14 points and 12 rebounds) and Billy Buckets Wampler (17 points) combined for 22 of 39 from the floor. Center Luke Knapke had 20 for Toledo (2-1).

The first good night for the Horizon this year.

Other Titan Non-Conference Opponents:
#1 Duke 84, Eastern Michigan 46. Maybe Coach Davis is right--EMU's wins over Rochester, Drexel, and Goshen didn't seem to prepare them to take on top-ranked Duke. OTOH, maybe nothing would have. The Eagles shot just 3 free throws all night, so the refs weren't helping them none, neither.

Other Games:
#18 Michigan 73, #8 Villanova 46. Some scores you look at and just go "Wow." Wow. Michigan by 27. Michigan by 27 at the half. At Villanova! The Wolverines forced 21 turnovers, while committing just 7, and shot 51% to Nova's 31%. Wow. A Big Big 10 kickoff to the Gavitt Games.

#11 Michigan State 80, Louisiana Monroe 59. Former walk-on Kenny Goins had 15 rebounds for MSU (2-1).

#9 Auburn 103, Mississippi College 52.
#10 Kentucky 96, North Dakota 58.
#19 Clemson 74, Sam Houston State 59.
Indiana 96, #24 Marquette 73. Another Big Big 10 win in the Gavitt Games. But Indiana (3-0) always hints at a return to dominance early in the year, and never delivers.

Nebraska 80, Seton Hall 57. It's not just that the Big 10 swept tonight's Gavitt Games with the Big East, it's that none of the three games were even remotely close.
Loyola 75, Niagara 62.
Florida 82, La Salle 69.
The Citadel 137, Johnson University 60. The Citadel has scored 285 points in its last two games, although Johnson University and Mid-Atlantic Christian aren't getting any votes yet in the AP poll.

Mid Major Upset of the Night:
Radford 63, Notre Dame 60. Radford refused to go away, and finally overcame Notre Dame in the closing minutes, behind 20 points from Caleb Tanner and 16 points and 11 rebounds from Ed Polite--if you please. Outside of John Mooney, who had 24 points and 12 rebounds, the Irish shot 31% from the floor. Radford (3-0) beat UIC earlier, a Horizon loss that doesn't look quite so bad now.

Runner Up:
Seattle 78, Washington State 69.

Thursday, November 15

Detroit at California, cancelled. This would have been an interesting game for our team, and a chance to beat a P5 team on the road. But it was cancelled due to the bad air quality from the wildfires engulfing much of California.

UIC 100, William & Mary 95 (OT). UIC played it's second straight overtime game, and this time came out on top for its first win of the year.

Titan Non-Conference Opponents:
Bowling Green 75, North Carolina Central 60. Demajeo Wiggins had his 4th straight double-double (22 points, 13 rebounds) for 2-2 Bowling Green.

Other Games of Passing Interest:
Central Michigan 67, CSU-Bakersfield 55. CMU is off to a 3-0 start. They limited Bakersfield to 30% shooting tonight.

Iowa 77, #13 Oregon 69. The Big 10 was expected to be down this year, but they've had a real nice week. Iowa shot 35% and committed 14 turnovers to 8 by Oregon, but the Hawkeyes made 29 of 33 free throws, and that was more than the margin of victory.
UConn 83, #15 Syracuse 76. Take that, ACC, for leaving the Huskies stuck in the AAC.
#16 Virginia Tech 73, Ball State 64.
#21 TCU 77, Fresno State 69.
#23 Purdue 92, Appalachian State 70.

Ohio State 69, Creighton 60. The Buckeyes blew a big lead but pulled it out late, as the Big 10 continued to show well in the Gavitt Games.
DePaul 72, Penn State 70. The Big East managed to squeak out one Gavitt Games win tonight, down at the bottom of the league lineups, when DePaul won in overtime. The OT was disaster all around--DePaul outscored the Nittany Lions 4-2 as the two teams combined missed 11 of 12 shots from the floor. But Trent Buttrick hit a couple free throws with 30 seconds left and DePaul advanced to 3-0. Penn State (2-1) wasted 25 points and 12 rebounds from Lamar Stevens.

Western Kentucky 83, Valparaiso 71.
Davidson 57, Wichita State 53. A couple of high mid-majors (or low High majors, or something).
St. Joe's 89, Wake Forest 69. Charlie Brown had 26 for St. Joe's (3-0). Wake Forest, with only a Chaundree Brown, couldn't compete.
BYU 85, Oral Roberts 65. I'm sure there's some deep religious meaning here, though I don't know what. Yoeli Childs had 24 points and 13 rebounds for BYU (3-1).

Mid Major Upset of the Day
Northeastern 68, Alabama 52. In Charleston, South Carolina, the Huskies (2-1) scored the game's first 8 points and were never really threatened, giving 'Bama (2-1) a thorough whuppin'.

Friday, November 16

Horizon League:
The Horizon lost a trio of road games you'd expect them to lose, but picked up 4 wins, including a difficult road win for Green Bay and a YSU win on a quasi-neutral floor in New York. Not a bad night.

UNLV 74, Oakland 61. Xavier Hill Maas had his second 30 point game of the season, but UNLV (2-1) went on an early 14-0 run and was never really threatened in this one.

Cincinnati 74, Milwaukee 63. Milwaukee (0-4) continued its bad habit of playing just well enough to lose, no matter the quality of the competition. Tonight, it was good competition, so the Panthers played a pretty solid game, taking an early lead and ending the first half in a tie. Every time UC (2-1) would get a couple buckets up, Milwaukee came back, taking the lead for the last time midway through the second half. An 11-2 spurt then finally gave UC a little breathing room, and the Bearcats sealed the win by going 8-8 from the foul line in the final 1:06. The final score was Cincy's biggest margin. Carsen Warren-Newsome led Milwaukee with 18 points and 7 assists.

Richmond 78, IUPUI 70. IUPUI came up short in its effort to get impressive, back-to-back road wins after beating BC earlier in the week.

Northern Kentucky 77, UNC-Asheville 50. The Norse are off to a 4-0 start after drilling Asheville (1-2) at the BB&T Arena in Covington. Jalen Tate had 16 points and Drew McDonald 14 points and 14 rebounds.

Cleveland State 84, South Carolina State 69. This was a slow, grind it out win for CSU (2-2) against surprisingly stubborn SC State (1-3). CSU played a solid game--only 8 turnovers, 49% shooting (33% from three), a balanced attack led by Stefan Kenic with 19--but didn't get a double digit lead until the final five minutes.

Youngstown State 94, Columbia 83. Juco transfer Kendale Hampton, who had 22 points in YSU's first 3 games, had 32 tonight, including 7 of 10 from three points. The Penguins (2-2) overcame an early 11 point deficit in the Bronx. Mike Smith had 31 points for Columbia (0-2).

Green Bay 82, Eastern Washington 78 (OT). Out in Cheney, Washington, Sandy Cohen hit a jumper with 33 seconds left, got the rebound on a missed free throw by Eastern, and hit a bucket with 8 seconds left to force overtime. Jayquan McCloud has 6 points in the OT as Green Bay (2-2) went on for the win. McCloud and Tank Hemphill each finished with 19 for the Phoenix, and Cody Schwartz added 18. Cohen had 9 points and 13 rebounds. Eastern Washington is 0-3.

Titan Non Conference Opponents:
Temple 81, Loyola (Md.) 67. The final score doesn't look too lopsided, but Temple (4-0) was never in trouble in this one. Shizz Alston had 18 for the winners. Brent Holcomb, a 6-8 forward, had 17 points, 12 rebounds, 4 assists and 2 blocks for Loyola (1-3), which is next up on the Titans' docket.

Akron 87, Chicago State 46. Tracy Dildy's old squad gave Illinois State a battle earlier this week, but Akron (3-0) was all over the Cougars (0-5), leading by 26 at halftime. Fourteen players scored for Akron, which cleared the bench early.

Dayton 91, Fort Wayne 80. Dayton came back from a halftime deficit on their home floor to beat IPFW, er... Fort Wayne ... er ... Purdue Fort Wayne. Talk about a woeful branding effort. Josh Cunningham led the Flyers (3-0) with 20 points on 9 of 10 shooting from the floor.

Liberty 77, Kent State 70. At Kent, Ohio, Liberty (3-0) ended the first half with an 11-2 run for a 31-23 lead, and never trailed after the break. Liberty fueled its win with 9 of 19 shooting from the arc, and 52% overall. The refs tried to help out the home team -- Kent (2-1) took 37 foul shots to 13 for Liberty, even though Kent was intentionally fouling in the final minutes in an effort to catch the Flames.

South Florida 73, Ohio U. 46. OU was just doing it's thing, leading 12-7, when about midway through the first half USF went on a 23-1 blitz, and that was that. OU ended up making just 2 of 25 three point attempts.

Ole Butler 83, Ole Miss 76. Butler (3-0) stayed unbeaten behind 27 points by Paul Jorgensen. Is Mississippi's insistance on being called "Ole Miss" the stupidest branding in college sports? There's lots of less competent efforts (a local Sisters of Mercy institution comes to mind), but for sheer stupidity, you'd be hard to beat "Ole Miss." Unless you put an accent over the "e."

Other Games of Interest:
Weber State 78, Central Michigan 76. Israel Barnes's three pointer swished through as the horn sounded, knocking CMU from the unbeaten ranks.

#2 Kansas 89, Louisiana 76. Lagerald Vick had 33 points for Kansas (3-0).
#4 Virginia 97, Coppin State 40. Virginia's defense is just ridiculous.
#6 Nevada 87, Little Rock 59.
#7 North Carolina 108, Tennessee Tech 58.
#12 Kansas State 95, Eastern Kentucky 68.
#13 Oregon 80, #15 Syracuse 65. Bol Bol had 26 26. "Get the papers, get the papers."
#16 Virginia Tech 88, Northeastern 60.
#17 Mississippi State 79, Long Beach State 51.
#20 UCLA 95, St. Francis (Pa.) 58.
#22 LSU 74, Louisiana Tech 67. LSU (4-0) didn't take the lead for good until 2:21 was left in the game.
#23 Purdue 79, Davidson 58. Carsen Edwards had 29 points as Purdue (4-0) showed Davidson (3-1) what's what.

St. John's 84, Rutgers 65. The Johnnies salvaged a win for the Big East in the Gavitt Games. In fact, the Big 10 only won this year's challenge 5-3. But the Big East's wins came at the bottom of the pile (this game, DePaul over Penn State), while the Big 10 made mincemeat out of the Easterners among the teams with serious post-season hopes.

Iowa 91, Connecticut 72. Iowa (4-0) followed yesterday's upset of #13 Oregon with a resounding win over UConn (3-1). Look for the Hawkeyes to enter the national rankings on Monday.
Valparaiso 64, Monmouth 53. Seems like only yesterday Monmouth was the darling of the mid-major world. They're 0-5 so far this year.
Penn 78, Northern Iowa 71. Penn is 4-0.

Mid-Major Wins of the Day
Howard 68, Massachusetts 63. Howard is off to a 4-0 start after today's upset win at Massachusetts (2-2). The Bison have had just one winning season (2002) in the last 26 years, with an average of just 8 wins per year. Think about that--we've had two straight 8 win seasons and can't believe the program has fallen so far; Howard has averaged just 8 wins a year over a 26 year period.

Loyola Marymount 65, Georgetown 52. James Bateman has 27 points and 8 rebounds for Loyola (4-0).
Western Kentucky 63, West Virginia 57. Super frosh Charles Bassey had 13 points and 15 boards for the Hilltoppers (3-1).

Games at Stanford, San Francisco, and Sacramento State were cancelled today due to smoke.

The term "Ole Miss" has nothing to do with Mississippi, although that would explain why they continue to use it. Old Miss was the slave reference to the wife of the plantation owner. But "Ole Miss" is so established as a reference to the school that the team will drop that name sometime after the Washington NFL team stops being called the Redskins. Now, why the team owner wants his players likened to small potatoes, I'll never know.

Saturday, November 17

The Horizon continued to dig out of the hole it created in week one, with HL teams winning 4 of 5 today, all over D-I teams.

Green Bay 87, Morehead State 70. Green Bay (3-2) completed a nice weekend out in Cheney, Washington, with a convincing win over Morehead State (2-3) in the "2K Empire Classic Subregional." The Phoenix mad 13 of 25 shots from behind the arc. Jaquan McCloud led the way with 23 points, including 5 three-pointers.

Wright State 89, North Florida 72. Six Raiders scored in double figures, led by Loudon Love with 20. Wright State (3-1) made 11 of 18 three pointers in an easy win.

Fordham 67, Youngstown State 61. Youngstown didn't have quite enough juice in Gotham. Fordham's Nick Honor clinched it by hitting 4 free throws in the final 18 seconds. Before that, it had been a tough game for Honor, who was 1-10 from three. Devin Morgan led YSU (2-3) with 25 points.

Northern Kentucky 59, Manhattan 53. Northern Kentucky is 5-0, and they'd better be, given that they're playing a bunch of patsies at home. Manhattan (1-3) closed a 17 point second half deficit to 5 with about three minutes left, but could get no closer. NKU made 10 of 19 threes, and got 19 points from Drew McDonald and 15 from Dantez Walton.

UIC 71, Bradley 70. Under Coach Steve McLain, UIC has developed a reputation for blowing leads, and they nearly did it again tonight. Bradley came back from a 15 point second half deficit to tie it with under 5 minutes left, and it looked like the same old story for the Flames. UIC responded with 6 straight points, but still did its best to throw this one. UIC was held without a field goal for the final 3:22, and missed 6 free throws in the final 2:06, but held on when Bradley's shot at the final buzzer was off the mark. In the end, it's a good win over a team generally projected to finish in the upper half of the MVC. Tarkus Ferguson led UIC's effort with 22 points and 10 assists.

Titan Non-Conference Opponents:
Eastern Michigan 80, Boston U. 62. Elijah Minnie scored 28 for EMU (4-1).
Western Michigan 99, Aquinas 52. Western padded its win total against NAIA Aquinas. Mike Flower led the Broncos with 19 points.

Other Games of Interest
#18 Michigan 84, George Washington 61. This game was not as close as the 23 point final differential looks. UM led by as much as 37 midway through the second half before calling off the dogs. A very impressive week for the Wolverines (4-0), who are playing as well as any team in the country. Charles Matthews led today with 25 points.

#24 Marquette 74, Presbyterian 55. Presbyterian (3-2) led 43-37 with 12 minutes left, but ran out of gas.

Drexel 89, La Salle 84. Drexel (2-2) beats it bigger neighbor. Looks like a long year looming for La Salle (0-4).
Duquesne 69, Radford 64. Eric Williams isn't so much the one that got away as the one we didn't bother to fish for. Today he had his thirteenth career double-double as Duquesne (3-0) beat Radford (3-1).

Pitt 71, North Alabama 66. North Alabama (1-3) is in its first year in D-I, and was playing a P6 opponent for the first time in its history. The Lions led at halftime, were tied with less than 11 minutes to play, were within 1 point twice in the final four minutes, and were within 1 possession, with the ball, in the final 20 seconds. But close only counts in horse shoes. Pitt is off to a 5-0 start.

Memphis 109, Yale 102 (2 OT). Yale showed how not to close out an upset win. The Eli led by 6 with 90 seconds to play, but Memphis forced the OT when Yale fouled Tyler Harris on a three point attempt with 2 seconds left, and Harris made all three foul shots. The scene played out again in the OT, when Yale, up two, fouled Memphis's Jeremiah Martin on a 3 point attempt with 8 seconds left. Martin missed the last two shots, but Memphis's Kyvon Davenport got the rebound, and Yale fouled him on the shot with 2 seconds left. Davenport missed the first, but hit the second to force a second OT, and Memphis won that going away. Memphis shot 56 free throws.

Mid-Major Win of the Day:
Furman 76, #8 Villanova 68 (OT). With two seconds left in regulation, Furman's Matt Rafferty missed the front end of a 1 & 1 that would have won it. But Rafferty came back with 3 rebounds, a block, and a turnaround jumper in the final minute of overtime that put the game out of reach. Rafferty finished with 15 points and 17 rebounds, and all five Furman starters scored between 13 and 17 points in the win. This is shaping up as the biggest season for Furman basketball since they were a national power behind 1954 National Player of the Year Frank Selvy, and 1956 All-American Darrell Floyd. After winning 23 games each of the last two years, they're 5-0 for the first time in 30 years; they've already beaten two of last year's final four participants on the road (having beaten Loyola a week ago), and last Thursday junior Jeff Lyons scored 54 points and made an NCAA record 15 three-pointers in a win against UNC-Greenville. The 54 points were the most for a Furman player in one game since Floyd scored 62 in 1956. The Paladins got a lone vote in last week's AP poll and will look to add more this week. They were last ranked in December of 1972, in the UPI poll.

Sunday, November 18

Northern Kentucky 89, Coastal Carolina 83. NKU wins its own invitational and advances to 6-0 with a hard fought win over Coastal Carolina (3-3). Drew McDonald had 31 points and 12 rebounds for the Norse, who hit 5 of 6 free throws in the final minute to ice the win.

Samford 73, Cleveland State 60. Samford rushed out to a 28-14 lead in the first 11 minutes, but a CSU rally cut the margin to 1 at halftime. But CSU threw its hard work away, allowing Samford to start the second half with a 14-2 blitz to reassert control. This time there was no comeback in the Vikings (2-3), who just couldn't shoot tonight--30% on the evening. A bad home loss for the Vikings, who have been disappointing so far. Samford is 5-0, but against a very weak schedule.

Florida International 102, Youngstown State 93. YSU loses two out of three at the Fordham tournament in New York. The Penguins led all three games at the half. YSU wasted a 27 point effort from Donel Cathcart. The Penguins (2-4) have had 5 different scoring leaders in the last 5 games. Brian Beard had 36 for FIU (5-1), which also counts Milwaukee among its victims this year.

Titan Non-Conference Opponents:
Loyola Marymount 65, Ohio U. 56. In its last two games, both losses, Ohio (2-2) has shot 29.1% and 33.9% from the floor.
Kent State 79, Alcorn State 48. CJ Williamson and Antonio Williams each had 17 as Kent State (3-1) romped.

Other Games of Interest, at least to Me:
#18 Michigan 66, Providence 47. UM just keeps rolling. This one the Wolverines led by 13 at the half and by as much as 24 in the second half. UM hasn't trailed in their last 138 minutes of ball against Holy Cross, Villanova, George Washington, and now Providence. In their 5-0 start, their average margin of victory is 22 points. Providence is 3-2. They've just beaten 2 Big East and an A10 team in road games or on neutral floors, by an average of 23 points. The Wolverines need the Final Four to start now, because they are playing as good or better than anyone else in the country.

#11 Michigan State 101, Tennessee Tech 33. This game was just ridiculous. Just counting State's 3 point attempts, they outscored Tennessee Tech 42-33.
Central Michigan 76, San Jose State 74. Shawn Roundtree gave CMU the lead with two free throws with 18 seconds left, and after San Jose tied it, Roundtree hit a jumper for the win with 4 seconds left. Central is 4-1.

#10 Kentucky 92, VMI 82. The Keydets (3-2) made 12 three pointers in the second half, cutting a 19 point deficit to 6 with under 2 minutes to play, but the Wildcats (3-1) held on.
#12 Kansas State 64, Penn 48. Penn falls from the unbeaten ranks.
#16 Virginia Tech 89, #23 Purdue 83. In Charleston, Purdue (4-1) led by 12 early in the second half, but couldn't hold it.

Georgetown 76, South Florida 73 (OT). The Hoyas (4-1) rallied from a double-digit deficit to win in OT.
Wake Forest 69, Valparaiso 63.
Holy Cross 57, Siena 45.
West Virginia 97, St. Joseph's 90.
Alabama 90, Wichita State 86. Alabama is 4-1, the Shockers are 2-3.
Arkansas 73, Indiana 72.
Evansville 85, Texas Southern 63. Coach Davis's old squad has dropped 4 straight since opening with an upset of Butler. Our old friends at Evansville are 3-2.

Monday, November 19:

A perfect night for the Horizon, and the Titans.

Detroit 91, Loyola (Md.) 63. Antoine Davis missed 4 three pointers, but still contributed with 5 assists, and the Titans rallied behind Darrien King's 17 points to get the win.

Oakland 91, Defiance 47. Xavier Hill-Maas had another 30 point night as Oakland (1-3) got its first win of the year against tiny Defiance. Hill-Maas was 12-12 from the floor tonight, and is averaging 26.5 points per game.

Titan Non-Conference Opponents:
Bowling Green 81, Hampton 79. After trailing most of the game, BG won it on a Demajeo Wiggins tip-back at the buzzer. Wiggins finished with 13 points and 11 rebounds, and Detroiter Justin Turner led Bowling Green with 21 points.

Rutgers 63, Eastern Michigan 36. The score at halftime was 31-4. I repeat, 31-4. Eastern (4-2) shot 2-25 for the half.

Cincinnati 78, Western Michigan 52. Mike Flowers had 23 points, 7 rebounds, and 6 assists, but Western (3-2) was no match for UC (3-1).

VCU 57, Temple 51. In a battle of Eastern unbeatens that may have ramifications come March, VCU (4-0) outscored Temple 19-2 to open the game, and 13-3 to finish it. In between, Temple (4-1) dominated, but the entire game counts.

#8 Auburn 88, Xavier 79. Xavier scored the final 5 points in regulation to force the OT, but Auburn ran away in the extra period behind 10 points from Jerod Harper and Bryce Brown. Ryan Welage led Xavier (2-2) with 17 for the game.

#16 Clemson 72, Akron 69. Akron cut a 15 point deficit with under 10 to play down to just 4, but the final wasn't quite as close as the score indicates, as the Zips scored 7 meaningless points in the final 18 seconds, the last a three at the buzzer. Still, a game performance by the Zips (3-1), who got 25 points from Loren Jackson.

Toledo 90, Florida Gulf Coast 62. Jaelen Sanford had 19 as Toledo (3-1) rolled.
St. John's 82, California 79. Shamorie Ponds had 32 points for the Johnnies (4-0). Justice Suing had 19 for Cal (1-2). Doesn't look like that game is going to be rescheduled.

Other Games:
#1 Duke 90, San Diego State 64.
#3 Gonzaga 84, Illinois 78. Gonzaga held off a series of Illinois charges in an interesting game in Maui. The Illini's Trent Frasier led all scorers with 29.
#6 Nevada 90, Cal-Baptist 55.
#7 North Carolina 101, St. Francis (Pa.) 76.
#12 Kansas State 82, Missouri 67.
#14 Florida State 93, Canisius 61.
Arizona State 72, #15 Mississippi State 67. ASU closed out the first half with a 23-7 run for a 15 point halftime lead. That left the second half as a long, slow battle in catch-up, with Mississippi State finally did with 1:02 left to play. But Arizona State answered with a three, and after a next-possession miss, Mississippi State (3-1) was left to foul. ASU (4-0) went 4-4 from the line to ice it.

#18 UCLA 80 Presbyterian 65. Presbyterian (3-3) chopped a 22 point halftime deficit to three before tiring. Erstwhile Titan Cory Hightower had 4 points and 7 rebounds as a starter for Presbyterian, while another freshman, Adam Flagler, had 29 for the Blue Hose.

Georgia State 75, St. Bonaventure 65. Assistant Coach Ray McCallum's team is 3-1.
Arizona 71, Iowa State 66.

Mid Major Win of the Day:
Utah State 80, St. Mary's 63. Not exactly an upset of a high-major, but there don't seem to be any of those today, pending the late results, at least. A nice win for Utah State (5-0) against another top mid-major.

Tuesday, November 20

Detroit 82, Bowling Green 67. For the second night in a row, Antoine Davis missed 4 three pointers, but Detroit was able to survive behind Josh McFolley's 18 and Derrien King's 14. Boe Nguidjol scored his first D1 points. McFolley passed Jason Calliste, Lou Hyatt, and Desmond Ferguson, and tied Bruce Rodwan for 29th on the Titans' all-time scoring list.

Milwaukee 92, Long Island 87 (OT). Milwaukee, after trailing since early in the first half, forced an OT on a Carsen Warren-Newsome bucket with 13 seconds left. Warren-Newsome then hit a key bucket to put the Panthers up 3 with 27 seconds left in the OT, and Darius Roy and Jake Wright each made 2 free throws in the final 5 seconds to preserve the win. Roy finished with 27 points and Warren-Newsome with 21 as Milwaukee got its first win against 4 defeats.

Penn State 77, Wright State 59. I was disappointed that Wright State--the consensus pick to win the Horizon--didn't give Penn State much of a fight down in Cancun. The Nittany Lions (3-1) never trailed, led by 17 at the break, and never let WSU (3-2) get closer than 13 in the second half. Billy Wampler had 17 points and Loudon Love 14 points and 10 rebounds for Wright State, but the Raiders were unable to stop Penn State at the other end.

#21 Oregon 83, Green Bay 72. Green Bay, OTOH, gave a pretty fair accounting at Oregon--a true road game against a much better opponent than Penn State. The Phoenix trailed for all but a few seconds early in the game, and never seemed to truly threaten the Ducks, but they wouldn't go away, either. Each time Oregon would open up a 12 or 13 point lead and seemed poised to break away, Green Bay would trim the lead back to 8 points or so, hanging around, making Oregon work. The Phoenix's final effort cut the margin to 4 with two minutes to go, but they misfired on two attempts to get closer and Oregon hit free throws. Green Bay turned it over just 5 times, but Oregon won it at the foul line, where they made 33 of 42 to Green Bays' 9 for 18. Big Bol Bol had 21 points and 9 rebounds for Oregon, while Sandy Cohen had 18 for Green Bay.

Titan Non-Conference Opponents
Loyola (Md.) 75, Hampton 66. Andrew Kostecka, who hit for 23 against us, had 18 points in the Greyhounds' win.

Temple 76, California 59. Still wish we'd been able to play Cal. Quentin Rose had 23 points and Shizz Alston 10 assists as Temple (5-1) bounced back from last night's loss to VCU.

San Diego State 79, Xavier 74. Xavier actually led by 19 points in the early going, but the Aztecs (3-1) got the gap back to single digits and then went on a 17-2 run in the second half to turn it around. It's not embarrassing to lose to Wisconsin, Auburn, and San Diego State, but it's obvious nonetheless that this is a sub-par Xavier squad. Ferris State transfer Zach Hankins had 15 for the Musketeers (2-3).

Toledo 77, Louisiana 64. Louisiana is the former Southwestern Louisiana, for you other old-timers. Nate Navigato and Jaelen Sanford each had 17 points, and Willie Jackson had 13 points and 16 rebounds for the Rockets (4-1).

Illinois State 73, Akron 68. Akron (3-2) had just 4 turnovers, but was doomed by 32% shooting. Illinois State (3-2) was a preseason favorite in the MVC.

Kent State 104, Savannah State 84. Kent had 63 points at halftime and led by as many as 43 in the second half.

Other Games:
#1 Duke 78, #8 Auburn 72. After falling behind by 14 in the early going, Auburn (4-1) kept clawing back at Duke, only to be met by a Duke run whenever it got too close. Duke is really good. This game sold me on Auburn, too.

#3 Gonzaga 91, Arizona 74. It looked grim for Gonzaga as Arizona extended an eight point halftime lead to 13 early in the second period. But the rest of the way it was Zags 54, Zona 24. Rui Hachimura had 24 for Gonzaga (5-0), while Justin Coleman led Arizona (4-1) with 28.

#16 Clemson 64, Georgia 49.
#23 Ohio State 68, Samford 50. Samford, which entered the game 5-0, was up 3 at the half and hit a three to start the second half. Then the Buckeyes finally got down to business with a 21-3 run, and cruised home from there. Freshman Detroiter Duane Washington is starting for the Buckeyes.

Notre Dame 67, Duquesne 56. A back and forth game, with Notre Dame (4-1) closing out on a 16-4 run. Duquesne takes its first lost against three wins.

St. John's 87, VCU 86 (OT). St. John's wins the GoPrint.com Legends Classic (that's the tournament whose "sub-regional" we just hosted, and included our game with Temple and cancellation with Cal). I'm sure the trophy will hold a place of honor in their gym. But beyond that, this is the type of game that matter a lot to these two schools come selection Sunday. Shamori Ponds (35 points, 7 assists, 7 steals for St. John's) and Isaac Vann (30 points, 11 rebounds, 5 assists for VCU) vied for individual honors. In the last minute of OT, Ponds hit two free throws to give St. John's a one point lead; Vann hit two to put VCU back on top; Ponds hit two more for a St. John's lead; Vann hit two to put VCU up 1 with 10 seconds left; and then Ponds hit a game winning basket with 4 seconds left. Advantage Ponds.

North Texas 74, Maine 63 (OT). North Texas (7-0) has the longest winning streak in the country, at 9 games.
Cal-Irvine 67, Tulane 55. Irvine is 6-0.

Mid-Major Win of the Day
Lipscomb 73, #18 TCU 64. After trailing at halftime, Lipscomb (4-1) built a 12 point second half lead, then held off a rally that three time brought TCU to within a point. This was Lipscomb's first win ever over a ranked team (they've been D-I for 16 years). Fittingly, senior Garrison Mathews, who already has over 1800 career points, led the Bison with 23 points. And some good trivia on Lipscomb: The career record for points scored at any level is held by John Pierce, who played for Lipscomb from 1990-94; the career record for assists at any level is held by Jerry Myer, who played for Lipscomb from 1989-92; the career record for steals at any level is held by Marcus Bodie (Lipscomb, 1986-1990), and the career record for three pointers at any level is held by Andy McQueen, Lipscomb (1991-95). Oh, and the #2 career scorer at any level, Philip Hutchinson? Lipscomb. Lipscomb played at the NAIA level during those years.

Wednesday, November 21

Southern Methodist 77, Wright State 76. The Horizon has had a problem all year with coughing up late leads. This time it was the Raiders (3-3), who led or were tied for over 35 minutes of clock time, but lost when SMU's Jimmy Whitt hit jumpers with 25 seconds and 4 seconds left in the game. Loudon Love had 19 points and 14 rebounds.

Youngstown State 104, Westminster 66. But Youngstown (3-4) blasted Westminster, so the Horizon has that. 15 Penguins scored tonight, and you can read that however you wish.

Titan Non-Conference Opponents
Dayton 69,Butler 64. Dayton (4-0) stays unbeaten, and Butler (3-1) doesn't. Dayton led by 15 with just over 4 minutes to go, and Butler's rally ran out of time. Dayton's Jalen Crutcher led all scorers with 20 points.

Xavier , Illinois . Seven players scored between 8 and 14 points as Xavier evened its record at 3-3.

Toledo 67, Cal-Irvine 60. Jaelen Sanford had 18 points as Toledo (5-1) dropped Irvine (6-1) from the unbeaten ranks.

Akron 61, St. Bonaventure 49. Danny Utomi hit 6 of 9 threes, finishing with 22 points and 9 rebounds for Akron (4-2). St. Bonaventure (1-5) is really struggling after last year's NCAA appearance.

Other Games of interest:
#3 Gonzaga 89, Duke 87. A March preview? Duke never led after the opening minute, but came from 16 down to tie it at 87 with with 1:45 to play. Rui Hachimura restored Gonzaga's lead on the next possession, and then came a wild final 90 seconds. Duke missed 7 shots from the field--super freshman RJ Barrett missed 5 of them--and Gonzaga went 0-4 from the foul line. Good enough. Zags likely take over #1 spot in the polls next week. Despite his late futility, Barrett led all scorers with 23, while Hachimura had 20 for the Zags.

#2 Kansas 77, Marquette 68. Trailing 47-38 at halftime, the Jayhawks held Marquette scoreless for over 9 minutes to open the second half, taking a 60-47 lead before Sam Houser finally connected with 10:45 to play. Take out those 9 minutes, and Marquette (3-2) did just fine. Dedric Lawson led the winners (4-0) with 26 points and 12 rebounds.

#4 Virginia 74, Middle Tennessee State 52. Virginia (4-0) has given up an average of under 48 points per game to its 4 D-I foes.
#5 Tennessee 92, Louisville 81.
#10 Kentucky 87, Winthrop 74.
#15 Mississippi State 61, St. Mary's 57. Tough, close game.
Creighton 87, #16 Clemson 82. Clemson exits the unbeaten ranks.
#20 Iowa 105, Alabama State 78.
#22 Buffalo 110, Dartmouth 71. Buffalo offered Bobby Hurley a huge sum in an unsuccessful effort to keep him as coach a few years ago. But they've done just fine under Hurley's successor, Nate Oaks. Milan's Nick Perkins had 18 points and 10 rebounds to lead Buffalo tonight.

#25 Wisconsin 62, Stanford 46.

Minnesota 68, Washington 66. In Vancouver, Gabe Kalschuer made a 3-pointer with 2 seconds left to keep the Gophers (5-0) unbeaten.

Boston College 78, Loyola 66.
Pittsburgh 75, St. Louis 73. Both teams entered the game at 4-0. Once St. Louis scored the first basket of the second half, these two were never separated by more than 4 points.

Mid Major Win of the Night
Georgia State 91, Georgia 67. Corey Allen's new team pummeled its big brother. Ga State (4-2) led 51-32 at halftime and quickly extended the lead to 32 after the break. Senior Malik Benlevi led the Panthers with a career high 24 points, all on three-pointers. Georgia is 3-3.
