Friday, January 11

Horizon
Northern Kentucky 68, Wright State 64. The season is going south fast for pre-season Wright State, which is 8-10 overall, 2-3 in the Horizon. They're 3-9 against D1 competition since mid-November. Loudon Love led the Raiders tonight with 16, but they were doomed by lousy 3 point shooting (3-15). Drew McDonald had 22 points and 12 rebounds for NKU (14-4, 4-1), which moved into a tie for first with our Titans. Northern Kentucky drew 5848 for the game, the best attended game this year in the Horizon by far.

A Couple Friday Night Games
Maryland 78, #22 Indiana 75. The Terps (14-3) wiped out a 10 point deficit with a 16-0 run early in the second half. Bruno Fernando led the way with 25 points and 13 rebounds. Freshman sensation Romeo Langford led the Hoosiers (12-4) with 28.

Purdue 84, Wisconsin 80 (OT). Ethan Happ (31 points, 13 rebounds, 6 assists) and Carsen Edwards (36 points) battled it out through regulation, but it was D'Mitrik Trice who hit two 3 pointers in the final 30 seconds of regulation to get Wisconsin (11-5) to overtime with Purdue (10-6). With 15 seconds left in the OT, Ryan Cline made just 1 of 2 free throws to give Purdue a 3 point lead. Purdue then fouled rather than give up the three, so Trice intentionally missed the second foul shot, but Purdue got the rebound and after a quick Wisconsin foul, Edwards made both free throws for the win.

Saturday, January 12

Horizon
Detroit 93, Milwaukee 84. And the Titans are back in sole possession of 1st place. Not to belabor the obvious, but this weekend was a big proving ground for the Titans. Before this weekend, folks could easily doubt that our boys were for real. Not now. We beat one of the most up-tempo teams in the nation, and 42 hours later beat one of the more deliberate teams. Milwaukee and Green Bay weren't expected to, and haven't been, among the HL's best teams, but they weren't expected to be, and haven't been, among the worst either. So just taking care of business at home is good. Reggie would be proud: how many times would he say "Defend the Hall!"? We led Milwaukee even when Davis had nothing, and Davis showed an ability to let himself be the decoy when that happened. (Of course, he then scored 32 points in the next 20 minutes of play). We won despite a career night for Milwaukee's Abram. Other guys were stepping up with big plays. And the Titans drew over 3000 for a non-Oakland game for the first time in almost three years. Just a real nice weekend.

And finally, on the McFolley watch, Josh passed Mike Lovelace to move into 22nd on the Titans' all-time scoring list. Lovelace was one of Ricky Byrdsong's first recruits, a big forward who did the tough work in the paint from 1990-93, and is 10th on the Titan all-time FG percentage list. Next on the list is a familiar name, Jermaine Jackson, but that will take a few games--Josh needs 70 points to pass JJ. Josh also passed Jon Goode and Anton Wilson to move into 4th on the Titans' all-time three point list.

Oakland 90, Green Bay 78. Oakland trailed at the half, but looked very good in the second half, which is what I saw. They built the lead to as many as 19 before easing up. Kamari Newman had the kind of game I expected more often from him this year, finishing with 33 points for OU (8-11, 4-2). Green Bay falls to 9-9, 3-2.

Youngstown State 82, IUPUI 76. I don't know what to make of this result on IUPUI's home floor, except that Youngstown wins when you least expect them to. Freshman Darius Quisenberry had 22 for the Penguins (6-13, 2-4). IUPUI drops to 10-8, 2-3.

UIC 73, Cleveland State 56. UIC (9-9, 3-2) just ground it out at home against an inferior opponent. CSU is now 0-6 in conference play and calls for Dennis Felton's scalp are rising. Probably premature, but fans will be fans.

Titan Non-Conference Opponents
Toledo 85, Western Michigan 77. The Rockets (13-3) win on the strength of 14-27 shooting from behind the arc. Western (6-10) has lost 8 of 9.

Eastern Michigan 95, Kent State 61. EMU was projected to win the MAC West this year, and today they played like it for probably the first time all season. The Hurons (8-8) shot 65% from the floor, 63% from three, and all 5 starters scored at least 14 points. Kent State is 12-4.

Bowling Green 97, Central Michigan 87. Our Bowling Green blowout keeps looking better. The Falcons won in overtime up in Mt. Pleasant today against a Chips squad that entered the game at 13-2 overall, 2-0 in the MAC. The Falcons lost a 16 point second half lead and had to rally from 6 down with a minute & twenty to play just to get to the OT. So they called on their leading scorer, Detroit native Justin Turner. After a basket cut the lead to 4 and Central's Larry Austin (26 points, 11 rebounds) missed both free throws, Turner hit a layup to cut it to two, Central failed to score, Turner hit two free throws to tie it with 7 seconds left, and Turner then stole the ball on Central's final possession. The overtime was even for a while but BGSU scored the final 10 points. Turner finished with 30 points as Bowling Green (11-5) ups its win streak to seven games.

Ohio 70, Ball State 52. The Bobcats (9-6) led 39-18 at halftime.

Northern Illinois 73, Akron 56. NIU (10-6) outscored visiting Akron (9-7) by 26 points in the second half to win going away.

Temple 82, South Florida 80. A big win for Temple (13-3), which is fighting to build an NCAA at-large resume. In this one, they blew a 14 point lead, fell behind by 8, rallied to force OT, and hit free throws down the stretch in the extra period. LaQuincy Rideau had a unique triple-double for South Florida (12-4), with 18 points, 10 assists, and 10 (!) steals. Rideau entered the afternoon 5th in the country in steals per game.

Loyola (Md) 66, Army 64. Loyola (5-12) snaps a six game losing streak.

Other Games
#1 Duke 80, Florida State 78. An excellent game worth watching on replay. RJ Barrett kept Duke (14-1) in it with 32 points, and Cam Redish hit the winning three with two seconds left. Mfiondu Kabengele had 24 points and 11 boards for FSU (13-3).

#3 Tennessee 78, Florida 67.
#4 Virginia 63, Clemson 43. Nobody scores on Virginia (15-0), no way, no how.
#5 Gonzaga 96, San Francisco 83. Since losing to North Carolina a month ago, Gonzaga had won 6 straight by an average of over 40 points. USF (14-3) was a tougher nut to crack, however. With just under 4 minutes left, the Dons seemed positioned to pull off the upset. But Gonzaga (16-2) closed the game out with a 17-2 run. This was a smartly played game, with good shooting and almost no turnovers.

#7 Kansas 73, Baylor 68.
#8 Texas Tech 68, Texas 62.
#10 Nevada 74, Fresno State 64.

#11 Auburn 93, Georgia 78.
Louisville 83, #12 North Carolina 62. Lousiville (11-5) was probably headed for the Tournament anyway, but a win like this adds considerably to the margin for error. It's UNC's worst home loss in 16 years under Roy Williams.

Ole Miss 81, #14 Ole Mississippi State 77. Ole Miss (13-2) wins the in-state rivalry behind 26 points from freshman Blake Hinson.
#15 North Carolina State 86, Pittsburgh 80.

Iowa 72, #16 Ohio State 62.
#17 Houston 79, Wichita State 70.
#18 Kentucky 56, Vanderbilt 47.
#19 Buffalo 88, Miami (Oh) 64. Buffalo is 15-1.
Kansas State 58, #20 Iowa State 57. Barry Brown drove for the winning layup with 5 seconds left. Brown led all scorers with 23 points. Both teams are 12-4 overall and 2-2 in Big 12 play

#21 Marquette 70, Seton Hall 66. Seton Hall (12-5) held Markus Howard to "just" 26 points, but Marquette (14-3) held off a second half Hall rally to win.

#23 Oklahoma 76, #25 TCU 74. Christian Doolittle had 24 points, including the game winner with 6 seconds left, and 10 rebounds for Oklahoma (13-3).

DePaul 79, #24 St. John's 71. I wonder when DePaul (10-5) was last 2-2 in the Big East. Femi Olubjobi, whom some might remember as a back-up forward for Oakland, who transferred to North Carolina AT&T, put up big numbers, and went to DePaul as a grad transfer, had 27 points. St. John's (12-3) has lost 3 of 5.

Notre Dame 69, Boston College 66. Notre Dame's bench scored 0, but fortunately for the Irish (11-5), the starters, led by John Mooney's 27 points and 12 rebounds, scored 69. Ky Bowman had 24 and 16 for BC (9-6).

Georgetown 96, Providence 90 (2OT). A three by Georgetown's Mac McClung at the buzzer sent the game to overtime, where a three by teammate James Akingo with 3 seconds left sent the game to a second overtime, where Georgetown (12-5) finally won. Jessie Govan led the Hoyas with 33. Alpha Diallo had 24 points and 13 rebounds for the Friars (10-6).

LSU 94, Arkansas 88. Two more teams likely to be on the bubble in March.
Princeton 62, Penn 53. The Tigers sweep the season series in this old Ivy rivalry.

Valparaiso 65, Southern Illinois 61.
Loyola 67, Illinois State 64. Valparaiso (11-6) and Loyola (10-7) sit atop the Missouri Valley. Now they act like they don't know us...
UNC-Greensboro 89, Furman 79. Both Southern Conference squads are 15-3 overall.

Sunday, January 13

Titan Non-Conference Opponents
Xavier 70, Butler 69. Trailing by 10 at the final media timeout, Xavier outscored Butler 16-5 the rest of the way and won it on a free throw by Naji Marshall with 3 seconds left. Zach Hankins triggered the rally with a pair of buckets, the first of which was good for an old-fashioned three point play. Paul Scruggs had 23 for Xavier (11-7). Butler is 10-7.

Dayton 72, UMass 67. Dayton (11-5) is off to a 3-0 conference start.

Other Games
#2 Michigan 80, Northwestern 60. Not at all close, with UM (17-0) leading by 22 at the break.
#6 Michigan State 71, Penn State 56. The Spartans (15-2) win their 10th in a row.

Villanova 90, Creighton 78. Despite some early struggles, Villanova (13-4) now sits in its accustomed spot atop the Big East, at 4-0 in conference.
Oregon 81, USC 60.
Oregon State 79, UCLA 66. The Bruins lose for the first time under Murray Bartow. Oregon State has a player named Tres Tinkle, which must have made for some tough times in 5th grade.

Monday, January 14

A Few Games912-5)
Syracuse 95, #1 Duke 91 (OT). The Orange went into Durham and toppled #1 Duke (14-2) in what has to a strong contender for game of the year. Duke scored the game's first 12 points, but Syracuse got back into it within minutes and it was nip and tuck the rest of the way. The final points of the game were a thundering dunk by the Orange's Paschal Chukwu with about 40 seconds left in overtime. Tyus Battle had 32 for 'Cuse, and Chukwu had 18 rebounds. That helped overcome big efforts by Duke's fabulous freshmen, Zion Williamson (35 points, 10 rebounds) and RJ Barrett (23 points, 16 rebounds, 9 assists).

#7 Kansas 80, Texas 78. The Jayhawks (15-2) held on, but it wasn't easy. Texas missed a three for the win with a few seconds left.

Pittsburgh 75, #11 Florida State 62. FSU (13-4) apparently hadn't recovered from its narrow loss to Duke on Saturday. Freshman Trey McGowan had his second 30 point game in the last three for Pitt (12-5).

#19 Maryland 64, Wisconsin 60. The Terrapins led by 18 at the half, and by 18 halfway through the second half. But the Badgers got rolling with 8 straight points from Nate Reuvers, and finally took the lead with 2 minutes left. But the Terps rallied, scoring the game's last 5 points.

Nebraska 66, #25 Indiana 51.

Tuesday, January 15

Titan Non-Conference Opponents:
Akron 51, Eastern Michigan 49. After playing it's best game of the year to crush Kent State on Saturday, EMU (8-9) reverted to its disappointing form and lost a mistake-filled game to Akron (10-7)

#18 Buffalo 88, Western Michigan 79. Western (6-11) has lost 9 of 10.

Kent State 66, Ohio 52. Inkster native Jaylin Walker had 21 points and became Kent State's all-time leader in three point shots made in an easy win over the original OU (9-7)

Bowling Green 79, Ball State 78. Justin Turner had 20 points and Bowling Green (13-5) won its 8th straight, the 6th longest current streak in the country.

Toledo 71, Miami (Oh) 59. Toledo advances to 14-3 overall.


Top 25 and such
Central Michigan 78, Northern Illinois 69. Central (14-3 overall) moved into a tie with Northern Illinois for first place in the MAC West by beating the Huskies in DeKalb.

#3 Tennessee 106, Arkansas 87. Arkansas (10-6) needs a resume building win.
#4 Virginia 81, Virginia Tech 59. Never close--UVa (16-0) led by 22 at the half. Tech (14-2) had a 9-game winning streak snapped.
#10 Nevada 72, Boise State 71. With 4 seconds left, Nevada's Cody Martin, shooting 19% on three point shots this year, he it the game-winning three. He had missed his previous 15 threes.

#12 Kentucky 69, Georgia 49.
#13 North Carolina 75, Notre Dame 69.
#15 Marquette 74, Georgetown 71. Marquette's Markus Howard played just 3 minutes due to back spasms, but Sam Hauser responded with 31 points, including game clinching free throws with 3 seconds left. Of Marquette's 3 stars from Michigan's Class of '17, Greg Elliott and Ike Eke are out for the season with injuries. Jamal Cain is averaging 2.1 points and 2.7 rebounds, with his playing time down significantly from his freshman year.

Wake Forest 71, #17 North Carolina State 67. The Demon Deacons (8-8) blew a 22 point, second half lead, allowing NC State to tie. But they never let the Wolfpack (14-3) take the lead, and ended up with their first ACC win of the year.

LSU 83, #18 Ole Miss 69.
#24 Mississippi State 71, Florida 68.

Loyola 71, Valparaiso 54. Loyola and Valpo are tied for first in the MVC after the Ramblers' easy win.
St. Louis 63, Fordham 60. St. Louis (13-4) sits atop the A10 and 4-0.
TCU 98, West Virginia 67. WVU (8-9) is 0-5 in the Big 12. "We're just not any good" said Bob Huggins in a straightforward, post-game analysis.

Bowling Green has now moved to #128 in the NCAA NET Ratings after last night's victory.

Also, Eastern Michigan's recent victories have moved it up to #163.

Our victories over these two MAC schools are beginning to help our own NET ranking at #166 because they are home victories over more highly rated teams.

Non-Conference Titan Opponents
Temple 85, East Carolina 74. Shizz Alston had 23 for Temple (14-3).

Butler 87, DePaul 69. Butler (10-7) broke open a tight game with a 17-0 run early in the second half. Kamar Newman had 17 points and 14 rebounds for the winners, who got their first Big East win. DePaul is 10-5 overall and 2-2 in the Big East.

VCU 76, Dayton 71. With the score knotted at 69, VCU's Marcus Evans scored his team's final 7 points for the win. Dayton (11-6) had a six game winning streak broken.

Loyola (Md) 81, Boston U. 73 (OT). Loyola fell behind 13-2 and trailed until late in the game, when they twice took 1 point leads for a few seconds. They quickly fell behind in the OT but then held BU scoreless for the final 3:21. Andrew Kostenka had 28 points for the Greyhounds (6-12).

Other Games
Iowa State 68, #8 Texas Tech 64.

#14 Auburn 85, Texas A&M 66.
Kansas State 74, #20 Oklahoma 61. A big few days for K State's at-large resume. The Cats are 13-4 after beating Iowa State on Saturday and Oklahoma (13-4) tonight.
#21 Houston 69, SMU 58.
#23 Iowa 89, Penn State 82.

Louisville 80, Boston College 70.
St. John's 81, Creighton 66. Barring a big turnaround or Big East tourney title, there'll be no NCAA for Creighton (10-8) this year.

Lipscomb 70, NJIT 52. Lipscomb (15-4)--sometimes mentioned as a long shot candidate for Horizon expansion--is unbeaten in the Atlantic Sun after knocking off NJIT (13-5).

Horizon League
After tonight's Horizon League play the Titans are at least two games up on every team in the league except OU and Northern Kentucky. We can rectify that as it pertains to Oakland on Saturday.

Northern Kentucky 91, Cleveland State 76. Drew McDonald had 19 points, 15 rebounds, and 6 assists, and Taylor Sharpe added 23 points, as NKU (15-4, 5-1) rolled past the Vikings (5-15, 0-7) in Cleveland. The win brings Northern into a tie with the Titans for first place in the Horizon. Detroit-based freshman led the Vikes with 23.

Wright State 80, Youngstown State 74. After leading a close, back and forth game most of the way, Youngstown faded the stretch. Freshman Malachi Smith had season highs with 17 points and 9 rebounds as the Raiders (9-10, 3-3) squared their Horizon record. Darius Quisenberry slung in 18 points for Youngstown State (6-14, 2-5).

IUPUI 76, Green Bay 70. Both teams are 3-3 in conference play after IUPUI wins in Green Bay. It was a competitive but sloppy game, with the teams combining for 43 turnovers and 39 personal fouls.

Milwaukee 81, UIC 69. DeAndre Abram followed up his 31 point performance against Detroit with 19 points and 16 rebounds, and Milwaukee got a happier result with a relatively easy win over UIC. These two squads are also both 3-3 in the Horizon.

Other Vitally Important Games
#6 Michigan State 70, Nebraska 64.

#5 Gonzaga 73, Loyola Marymount 55.
Oregon 59, Arizona 54. Road win for Oregon (10-6).

Jacksonville State 91, Belmont 80 (OT). Jacksonville game back from a 14 point deficit to force OT, then crushed Belmont in the extra period. That leaves the Gamecocks tied with Murray State for first place in the Ohio Valley at 5-0. Anybody know, is Jacksonville, Florida remotely near the Ohio Valley?

Hofstra 87, UNC-Wilmington 72. Justin Foreman, the nation's #3 scorer, was held to just 19 points, but Hofstra won easy and leads the Colonial at 6-0. The Pride (16-3) are off to their best start since joining the major college ranks in 1966.

Friday, January 18

Titan Non-Conference Opponents
#16 Buffalo 77, Eastern Michigan 65. Buffalo finally put EMU away with a 15-0 run starting with about eight minutes left. CJ Massingill had 31 and Milan's Nick Perkins 21 for Buffalo (17-1). Eastern is 8-10 overall but just 4-10 against D1 teams.

Toledo 75, Ohio 52. Rockets are 15-3; Ohio is 9-8.

#22 Villanova 85, Xavier 75. The Musketeers fall to 11-8, and are unlikely to make the NCAA tournament for only the 3rd time in 19 years. 'Nova is 14-4.

Other Games
#19 Maryland 75, Ohio State 61. Nice win in Columbus.

Northwestern 65, Rutgers 57.
St. Louis 68, St. Joe's 57. St. Louis (14-4) leads the A10 at 5-0 in conference.

Saturday, January 19

Horizon
Oakland 79, Detroit 73. The Titans' rally comes up short. Good game plan for OU, good games for Cumberland, Hill-Maas, Brechting. Pisser. Titans shot poorly from three, couldn't hit the big shot down the stretch. Refs didn't help by allowing a lot of perimeter contact. Any future Titan opponent should just start pushing, hand-checking, and slapping Detroit on the perimeter until the refs start calling it. If Horizon refs aren't willing to call it (Northern Kentucky game, this game) you beat us. If they call (Milwaukee), we beat you. Nice game for Moore but King and McFolley were silent in a game in which we needed them. Isiani can score. Now if we can just get and keep him on the floor. The "rivalry" goes to 9-2.

Northern Kentucky 82, Youngstown State 74. Youngstown (6-15, 2-6) was game, and briefly took the lead midway through the second half. The Norse (16-4, 6-1) responded with an 11-2 run and ground it out after that. The win left the Norse in sole possession of first place in the Horizon.

Green Bay 90, UIC 85. This game swung back and forth, with Green Bay swinging last. Free throws were the difference, with Green Bay making 20 of 25 to outscored the Flames by 9 at the line. Sandy Cohen had 26 and JayQuan McCloud 21 for Green Bay (10-10, 4-3). UIC (9-11, 3-4) got 25 from Godwin Boahen.

Wright State 89, Cleveland State 66. CSU (5-16, 0-8) seems to be getting worse every game. They've lost 8 straight, the last 4 by an average of 18 points. Loudon Love had 23 and Billy Wampler 21 for the victorious Raiders (10-10, 4-3).

Milwaukee 64, IUPUI 57. Darius Roy had 25 points as Milwaukee swept this weekend. The Panthers are 9-11, 4-3; IUPUI is 11-9, 3-4.

Non-Conference Titan Opponents
Bowling Green 79, Western Michigan 48. The Bowling Green (13-5) juggernaut rolls on, manhandling Western (6-12) for it's 9th straight win.

Kent State 78, Northern Illinois 68. 31 points and 8 rebounds for Kent's Jaylin Walker, the Pride of Inkster.

Miami (Oh) 68, Akron 61. My fave player, Tyler Cheese, had 17 points and 8 rebounds in a losing cause.

Butler 80, St. John's 71. Kamar Baldwin had 30 for Butler (12-7). Both teams are going to be scrambling to stay in at-large contention.

Dayton 89, St. Bonaventure 86 (2OT). Courtney Stockard's 36 point, 10 rebound game wasn't enough for the Bonnies (6-12), who rallied two tie it in the final seconds of regulation and the first OT. But three was a charm for Dayton (12-5), currently sitting in second place in the A10.

Penn 77, Temple 70. Temple took a break from AAC play to host old Big 5 rival, Penn (11-6). The Quakers, early season conquerors of Villanova, Miami, and New Mexico, entered on a 4 game losing streak, but they found their mojo today, and led for all 20 seconds early in the game. Although Penn's a respectable team, this was a damaging loss for Temple (14-4), which expects to be on the bubble on selection Sunday. Ernest Aflakpui had 21 points and 15 rebounds in the losing effort.

Loyola (Md) 67, Holy Cross 65 (OT). Loyola (7-12 ) wins its third straight. Andrew Kostenka had 26 points and 8 rebounds, including a game winner at the buzzer as Loyola scored the last six points in overtime.

Other Games
Ball State 83, Central Michigan 72.

Wisconsin 64, #2 Michigan 54. A close, rugged game, with Wisconsin pulling away in the final minute. Michigan (17-1) misses a chance to move up to #1 for the first time since the 2013. For my money, they've still been the most impressive team in the country so far. Ethan Happ had 26 points, 10 rebounds, and 7 assists for Wisconsin (12-6).

#1 Duke 72, #4 Virginia 70. Another really quality game to watch. And with both Michigan and Virginia falling, there are no more unbeaten teams. Duke freshmen RJ Barrett and Zion Williamson combined for 57 points. Best freshman combo ever?

#3 Tennessee 71, Alabama 68. The Tide came oh so close to the upset, closing to within 1 and forcing a Tennessee turnover with 12 seconds to play. But the Tide returned the favor, and the Volunteers (16-1) hit free throws and survived. John Petty had 30 for Alabama (11-6).

So, who's your #1? Duke? Tennessee? Someone else?

#5 Gonzaga 89, Portland 66.
West Virginia 65, #7 Kansas 64. A couple days after Coach Huggins pronounced his team "not any good," the Mountaineers (9-9) ambush Kansas (15-3).

Baylor 73, #8 Texas Tech 62.
#9 Virginia Tech 87, Wake Forest 71.
#10 Nevada 67, Air Force 52.
#12 Kentucky 82, #14 Auburn 80. Kentucky blew a 17 point second-half lead, but pulled it out with 3 free throws in the final 24 seconds.

#13 North Carolina 85, Miami (Fl) 76.
#17 North Carolina State 77, Notre Dame 73. Two free throws by Devon Daniels with 12 seconds to play sealed the win for the Wolfpack (15-3). Notre Dame (11-7) is looking like an NIT team.

#18 Mississippi 84, Ole Arkansas 67.
Texas 75, #20 Oklahoma 72. The Longhorns (11-7) won a game that was quite thrilling down the stretch.
#21 Houston 69, South Florida 60.
#24 Mississippi State 71, Vanderbilt 55.
Purdue 70, #25 Indiana 55. The Hoosiers (12-6) have lost 4 in a row.

Syracuse 74, Pittsburgh 63.
Cincinnati 66, Wichita State 55.
Kansas State 65, Texas Christian 55.
Army 72, Navy 61. How come no one cares about Army/Navy in basketball?
USC 80, UCLA 67.
Arizona 82, Oregon State 71.

Loyola 75, Indiana State 67.

UNC-Greensboro 75, East Tennessee State 68.
Wofford 59, Furman 54. The top 4 teams in the Southern Conference squared off, and Wofford (15-4) emerges alone in 1st place.

Other Games
Boston College 87, #11 Florida State 82. Ky Bowman had 37 points to pace a BC (10-7) upset. FSU (13-5) has lost 4 of 5.
#15 Marquette 79, Providence 68.
#23 Iowa 95, Illinois 71.

Monmouth 83, Iona 81. You want a conference about the Horizon's level that really struggling this year, it's the MAAC. Every team in the league except Niagara had a losing non-conference record, and every team except 1st place Rider currently has a losing record. Monmouth has won 4 in a row since starting the year at 2-14, and is in second place. Third place Iona is 6-11 overall and its streak of 9 consecutive 20-win seasons seems unlikely to be extended.

Duquesne 91, George Washington 85 (OT). Duquesne (13-5) is 4-1 in the A10. I'm curious as to when they last started that well in conference play.

Other Hugely Important Games
#6 Michigan State 69, #13 Maryland 55. The Spartans (16-2) have won 11 in a row. I wonder if both UM and MSU have peaked too early. One-time walk-on Kenny Goins had 14 points and 12 rebounds for MSU.

#9 Kansas 80, #24 Iowa State 76. Dedric Lawson had 29 points and 15 rebounds and Kansas (16-3) used a 14-0 second half run to turn the tables on Iowa State. Devon Dotson sealed the win with two free throws with 7 seconds remaining. Mariel Shayok had 26 for Iowa State (14-5).

#11 North Carolina 103, #10 Virginia Tech 82.

Baylor 85, West Virginia 73. Teams that beat Kansas always lose their next game.
Creighton 91, Georgetown 87. TyShon Alexander had 26 points and Mitch Ballock hit 4 free throws in the final 30 seconds as Creighton (11-8) snapped a four game losing streak.

Prairie View 83, Grambling 66. Prairie View (7-11) leads the SWAC at 5-0 in conference. The Panthers have 1 NCAA appearance and 3 winning seasons in 38 years of D1 hoops.
Texas Southern 75, Jackson State 65. Texas Southern (8-10) had a nice non-conference season, with wins over Baylor, Oregon, and Texas A&M, but they've already lost twice in the SWAC.

Liberty 72, North Alabama 47. Liberty (17-4) sits atop the Atlantic Sun at 6-0 in conference.
Radford 72, Longwood 59. Radford (14-6) leads the Big South at 6-0.
Norfolk State 74, South Carolina State 69. Norfolk (11-10) leads the MEAC at 6-0.
