Some Other Teams' Games
#2 Duke 83, Notre Dame 61. Duke (18-2) shot 54% from the field and 52% from three.
#16 Texas Tech 84, Texas Christian 65. A surprisingly easy romp for Tech (17-4) over the Frogs (15-5).

Baylor 77, Oklahoma 47. Does this huge win get Baylor (14-6) into the at-large picture? Take Oklahoma (15-6) out of it? Likely both?

Prairie View A&M 79, Arkansas Pine Bluff 63. Prairie View (9-11) leads the SWAC at 7-0. Prairie View has been a SWAC member since the league's founding in 1920, They've won just 3 SWAC regular season titles, in 1961, 1962 (when they also won the NAIA National Championship with a team led by future NBA All Star Zelmo Beaty), and 2003. In 38 years of Division one play they've had three winning seasons and averaged just 8 wins a season. They've made 1 NCAA appearance, when their 1998 team went 10-16 in the regular season but won the SWAC tournament and lost to Kansas, 110-52, in the first round.

Tuesday, January 29

Non-Conference Titan Opponents
Dayton 75, St. Joe's 64. Dayton (14-7) moves to within a game of 1st place in the A10.

Central Michigan 86, Eastern Michigan 82. A dogfight that wasn't decided until Eastern's Kevin McAdoo intentionally missed a free throw with 1 second left and EMU down two. Eastern (9-12) fouled trying to get the rebound, with the foul shots providing Central's final margin of victory. Central is 15-6.

Toledo 66, Miami (Oh) 63. A 14-2 run left Miami (11-10) up 2 with with just over a minute to play, but Nate Navigato hit a three for the lead and a two with 15 seconds left to give Toledo (17-4) the win. Toledo is tied for the MAC West lead.

Northern Illinois 71, Ohio 60. A 15-4 run left NIU (12-9) up ten with two minutes to play. Ohio (11-9) made just 5 of 26 from three.

Other Games
#5 Michigan 65, Ohio State 49.

#1 Tennessee 92, South Carolina 70.
#3 Virginia 66, #23 North Carolina State 65 (OT). This one wasn't over until there were 0.9 seconds left in the OT, when NC State's Markell Johnson made a free throw he was trying to miss.

#7 Kentucky 87, Vanderbilt 52. Bryce Drew hasn't found the combination yet at Vandy (9-11). He's 40-47 since taking over the Commodores.
#9 North Carolina 77, Georgia Tech 54.
Texas 73, #11 Kansas 63. Don't look now, but Kansas (16-5) has lost 3 of 4. Texas (12-9) takes a big step to solidify its post-season selection resume.
#18 Buffalo 83, Ball State 59.
#21 Maryland 70, Northwestern 52.
Alabama 83, #22 Mississippi State 79.
#24 Wisconsin 62, Nebraska 51.

Lipscomb 79, Liberty 59. These two teams started the night tied for first in the Atlantic Sun conference at 7-0. Lipscomb (17-4) has non-conference wins over Texas Christian and SMU. Liberty (18-5) has the non-conference win at UCLA that got Steve Alford fired.

Other Games:
#12 Virginia Tech 82, Miami (Fl) 70.

After an offensive foul on Radford, Chris Clemons, the nation's leading scorer, hit two frees throws with 10 seconds left, and after an intentional foul, Radford missed both free throws. Campbell (12-9) got the rebound and Clemons then sank a 3 at the buzzer for the win. Clemons finished with 39 points.

Frigid Thursday, January 31

Setting Sun
Detroit 78, Cleveland State 64. At home, against the last place team missing its leading scorer and another starter, the Titans did what they had to do.

Youngstown State 75, Oakland 74. Freshman Darius Quisenberry scored 6 points in the final 1:09 as Youngstown (7-16, 3-7 Horizon) rallied from a halftime deficit and then held off Oakland (10-13, 6-4) on the Glaretop. Quisenberry finished with 23 points and 5 assists. Oakland wasted a big game by Brad Brechting (21 points, 18 rebounds).

Titan Non-Conference Opponents
Kent State at Western Michigan. Postponed. That's a good result for Western, which has lost 7 straight and 10 of 11.

#13 Houston 73, Temple 66. Somewhere along the line Temple (15-6) has to win a big game if they're going to contend for an at-large bid. Not tonight, though. Houston has the best record in the nation at 21-1.

Georgetown 80, Xavier 73. Xavier (11-11) got a big early lead but the Hoyas (14-7) slowly fought back, took their first lead midway through the second half, and pulled away in the final 4 minutes.

Big Games
#17 Purdue 99, Penn State 90 (OT). Penn State got their first lead of the game in the final minute of regulation, but Purdue forced the OT on a Carsen Edwards bucket with 5 seconds left. The Boilermakers then reasserted control in the extra period. Edwards finished with 38 points for the Boilermakers, who have won 6 straight and moved into third in the Big 10 behind the Michigan teams.

Arizona State 95, Arizona 88 (OT). Remy Martin scored 31 as ASU (14-6) nipped big brother Arizona (14-7) in OT.

Old Dominion 72, North Texas 61. ODU (17-6) moves into first place by half a game in Conference USA. North Texas is 18-4.

Jacksonville State 88, Murray State 68. In another showdown for first place, Jacksonville State (16-6) blew out Murray State (16-4) to break a tie between the two atop the Ohio Valley Conference.

Friday, February 1

Horizon
IUPUI 83, Northern Kentucky 77. This one started out as a normal NKU romp through inferior Horizon competition. The Norse scored on 12 of their first 15 possessions to lead by 10 points. Then a strange thing happened--IUPUI went on a 28-5 run to take a 13 point lead. NKU (18-5, 8-2) fought back tie it the second half, but could never get the lead back. This was a very bad result for the Titans, since it keeps IUPUI (14-9, 6-4) tied with us in the standings but also gives them a big leg up in the tie-breakers should we end up tied at the end of the year. It's also not the result league officials wanted, since they have to be hoping that the Norse can win the conference tournament and get a good NCAA seed. I was impressed by IUPUI's poise. It was also interesting that NKU Coach John Brannen had Drew McDonald on the bench in the final minutes. McDonald didn't have a good game, but he's the team's best player, the favorite to win the Horizon Player of the Year Award. What does it say that you don't have confidence to have him on the floor in that scenario? IUPUI"s Cameron Justice led all scorers with 26.

UIC 67, Wright State 53. Like NKU, Wright State (12-11, 6-4) raced out to an early 10 point lead, and then went ice cold, shooting just 23% for the rest of the game. UIC improved to 11-12, 5-5.

Green Bay 90, Milwaukee 74. Cody Schwarz hit 6 three-pointers and Green Bay shot 57% to beat Milwaukee (9-14, 4-6). The Phoenix (11-12, 5-5) took the lead shortly after the first TV timeout and never trailed again.

The night's results leave Wright State, IUPUI, Oakland, and Detroit tied for second in conference play at 6-4, with Green Bay and UIC 1 game back at 5-5.

Titan Non Conference Opponents
Bowling Green 92, #18 Buffalo 88. The Falcons rallied from an 8 point halftime deficit to win a showdown for first place in the MAC East. Demajeo Wiggins had 17 points and 10 rebounds, Justin Turner had 22 points, and Dylan Frye had a season high 25 points for Bowling Green (15-6). CJ Massinburg led Buffalo (19-3) with 26 points.

Other Games
Iowa 74, #5 Michigan 59. You have the feeling that Michigan (20-2) peaked too early. The host Hawkeyes (17-5) needed this win, having fallen into the bottom half of the Big 10 standings.

#24 Wisconsin 69, #21 Maryland 61.

Davidson 75, St. Bonaventure 66. Kellan Grady had 29 for Davidson (16-5), which move into a tie with George Mason for first place in the A10.
Harvard 65, Yale 49. The Crimson knock Yale out of first in the Ivy. https://youtu.be/Yg1YZ9fBRos?t=39

Saturday, February 2

Horizon
Youngstown State 72, Detroit 70. Worst loss of the year. I think it is fair to say that the Titans will have to be very lucky to finish at .500 in the conference, and should expect to open the conference tournament on the road. I do think we'll make the conference tournament.

Oakland 83, Cleveland State 68. Brad Brechting followed up his 21 point, 18 rebound performance on Thursday with 31 points today, on 14 of 15 from the floor. Oakland (11-13, 7-4) has been waiting a long time for Brechting to come into his own, and it looks like he's finally figured it out. Look out, Horizon! Jaevin Cumberland add 20 and Xavier Hill-Maas had 10 points, 11 rebounds, and 7 assists. Forty-eight of Cleveland's 68 points were scored by Michigan kids, with Rashad Williams and Dontel Highsmith leading the way with 19 points each.

Titan Non-Conference Opponents
Central Michigan 85, Western Michigan 64. Western's season keeps getting suckier. They lost for the 11th time in 12 games, despite 27 points from Michael Flowers. CMU (16-6) got 21 points, 11 rebounds, and 5 assists from Larry Austin. They trail Toledo by a game in the MAC West.

Miami (Oh) 59, Eastern Michigan 48. Eastern's long, disappointing season continues. Preseason favorites in the MAC West, they're now 9-13, and 4 of those wins are against non-D1 opponents.

Toledo 69, Northern Illinois 55. Toledo led coast to coast to improve to 18-5.

Akron 65, Ohio U. 53. Akron is 13-8; Ohio 11-10.

Kent State 83, Ball State 80 (OT). Ball State rallied from 9 down with 4 minutes left in regulation and tied it on a three with four seconds to play. Kent State (16-5) won it on a layup with 1 second left in the OT, adding 2 foul shots when Ball State (11-11) fouled on the inbounds play.

Butler 70, Seton Hall 68. Trailing by 13 with 4 minutes to go, Seton Hall (13-9) rallied to tie, but a Paul Jorgenson bucket with 15 seconds to play put Butler (13-10) ahead and Seton Hall's final three point shot was off the mark. Butler really needed this win to stay in the NCAA picture.

Dayton 68, Duquesne 64. Dayton (16-5) used an 11-0 run midway through the second half to wipe out a double-digit Duquesne lead, and went on to win in Dayton. The win leaves Dayton a half game behind Davidson in the tight A10 race, while Duquesne falls 1.5 off the pace. Michigander Eric Williams had 20 points and 9 rebounds for Duquesne (16-5).

Temple 75, Tulane 67. Shizz Alston scored 29 for Temple (16-6).

Navy 71,Loyola (Md) 68. Andrew Kostenka's 27 point, 10 rebound day was wasted by Loyola (8-15).

Davenport 84, Wayne State 75. Just thought we'd check in on the Titans' exhibition opponent, Wayne State. The erstwhile Tartars have had a tough season, and fall to 5-13 with today's defeat. Davenport (18-3) will likely enter the D-II national rankings in the next poll, after beating #7 Ashland earlier in the week. Davenport teams, by the way, are called the Panthers. If I were in charge I would call them the Couches.

Really Important Games
Mott 88, Schoolcraft 85 (OT). The nation's #1 and #9 ranked juco programs squared off today at Mott, with Mott getting revenge for a January loss to the top-ranked Ocelots. Looks like it was a thrilling finish--starting with just under 7 minutes to play, the Mott Bears went on a 20-2 run to force the overtime.

Indiana 79, #6 Michigan State 75 (OT). The Hoosiers (13-9) won at Michigan State (18-4) to snap a 7 game losing steak. That's two straight losses for Sparty. Did both Michigan Big 10 squads peak too early?

#1 Tennessee 93, Texas A&M 76. "What kind of education do you usually have here?" "Oh, we got both kinds. We got agricultural, and mechanical."
#2 Duke 91, St. John's 61. St. John's (16-6) kept it close for most of the first half.
#3 Virginia 56, Miami (Fl) 46.
#4 Gonzaga 85, San Diego 69. 32 points tonight for Rui Hachimura.
#7 Kentucky 65, Florida 54.
#8 Nevada 93, Boise State 73. Caleb Martin had 30 for Nevada (21-1).
#9 North Carolina 79, #15 Louisville 69.
#11 Kansas 79, #16 Texas Tech 63.
#12 Virginia Tech 47, #23 North Carolina State 24. No, that's not a half time score. NC State (16-6) was 9 of 54 from the floor; Tech (18-3) wasn't great, at 35%, but that was enough this day. Maybe it was forties throwback night or some or other game promo.

Arkansas 90, #19 LSU 89. Last Saturday, LSU (17-4) rallied from 14 down with under 3 minutes to play to beat Missouri. Today they came back from 18 down in the second half to take a late lead, but Arkansas (13-8) finally pulled itself together and won it on a late Mason Jones jumper. It was LSU's first loss in SEC play.

#20 Iowa State 65, Texas 60.
#22 Ole Miss State 81, Ole Miss 75.
#25 Florida State 59, Georgia Tech 49.

Lehigh 75, Army70 . It's so rare that Army (11-12) is ever contesting for anything in basketball, we should note that had they won this game, they would have moved into a tie with Lehigh (15-6) for first place in the Patriot Conference.

Georgia State 81, Georgia Southern 72. Another battle for first place, this in the Sunbelt Conference. Ray McCallum and Corey Allen were on the bench for one of these teams, but who knows which.

Notre Dame 79, Boston College 73. Bad years for the flagship Catholic schools. Both are 2 game over .500.

Washington 69, UCLA 55. These Huskies (18-4) stay unbeaten in the PAC 12.
Northeastern 75, Hofstra 61. These Huskies snapped Hofstra's nation's best 16 game winning streak. Northeastern held Justin Wright-Foreman, the nation's #3 scorer, to 15 points. Hofstra (19-4) still holds a two game lead over second place Northeastern (13-9) in the Colonial Athletic Association.

Austin Peay 74, Jacksonville State 71. The Governors' upset win leaves Austin Peay, Jacksonville State, Belmont, and Murray State tied atop the OVC. Jacksonville State (16-7) had rallied from 19 down to tie it but Peay (16-7) pulled it out in the final seconds.

Texas-San Antonio 116, Marshall 106 (OT). A kid named Kheeton Wallace had 45 points for UTSA (13-10).

If BC is a “flagship Catholic school” then Oakland is the State of Michigan’s flagship university. Also, flagship, by definition means one.

Oh contraire. The U.S. Pacific Fleet and the U.S. Atlantic Fleet each have a flagship, as does most any other detachment.

And BC is one of the flagship Catholic schools, and in sports one of the two most important. Along with Notre Dame, it is the only one that is still a meaningful player in football, which is where college sports' big money and big audiences are. It plays basketball in the ACC, making it permanently relevant in the #2 sport. Virtually every college/university ranking places BC as one of the top three Catholic schools in the country, typically behind Notre Dame and sometimes ahead, sometimes behind Georgetown. It has the second largest endowment of any Catholic university, after, of course, the Irish (BC's endowment is about 50% greater than Georgetown's and double #4 St. Louis).

All these and more make it one of the most visible and most Catholic Colleges/universities. A "flagship," if you will.

Sunday, February 3

Horizon:

Wright State 79, IUPUI 74. Wright State charged out of the gate, leading 19-2 and 24-4 before host IUPUI began a comeback. And it was a good comeback, tying the game less than a minute into the second half. From there the two teams went through 2 ties and 6 lead changes before a 12-2 run starting at the 4:22 mark got Wright State some breathing room. Not a good result for the Titans, since this leaves us a game behind Wright State (13-11, 7-4) and tied with IUPUI (14-10, 6-5). We'd be better the other way round, since hold the tiebreaker over Wright State, but not IUPUI.

UIC 69, Northern Kentucky 67. Northern Kentucky lost both games this weekend, killing their NCAA seeding, yet leaving them still in the Horizon League Drivers' Seat. The Norse trailed almost the entire game, but got a one point lead with 1:00 minute to play on a Drew McDonald jumper, capping a little 8-0 run. Each team failed to score on it's next possession. With 5 seconds left Jalen Tate blocked a Godwin Boahen layup, but Tarkus Ferguson got the rebound and found an open Jamie Ahale, who a three pointer with two seconds left to give UIC the win. This was also a bad result for the Titans, since it moves UIC into a tie with us at 6-5 in conference, and UIC holds the tiebreaker.

Here are the standings, with tie-breakers:
1. Northern Kentucky 8-3
2. Wright State 7-4
3. Oakland 7-4
4. IUPUI 6-5
5. UIC 6-5
6. Detroit 6-5
7. Green Bay 5-5
8. Milwaukee 4-6
9. Youngstown State 4-7
10. Cleveland State 1-10

Titan Non-Conference Opponents
Creighton 76, Xavier 54. Xavier (11-12) lost it's 5th in a row. Creighton, at 13-9, may still harbor at-large hopes.

Some Other Games of Passing Interest
#14 Villanova 77, Georgetown 65. Collin Gillespie had 30 points as the Wildcats (18-4) won their 10th in a row.
#17 Purdue 73, Minnesota 63.

Clemson 64, Wake Forest 37. So the ACC had games this weekend in which the losers scored 24 and 37 points.
Stanford 84, Cal 81. Cal is 5-16. I think we woulda won that game.

South Dakota State 92, Denver 82. SD State senior Mike Daum had 28 points to move past Larry Bird and into 15th place in the NCAA all-time list for points scored. If one and done stays the norm, it's only a matter of time until that list is dominated by mid-major players. South Dakota State leads the Summit at 9-1, 19-6 overall. Daum is 5th in the nation in scoring at 24.9 ppg.

Tuesday, February 5

Titan Non Conference Opponents
Bowling Green 85, Western Michigan 72. These two are mirror images of each other: Bowling Green (16-6), is rolling, winning for the 12th time in 13 games. Western (6-16) is not rolling, losing for the 12 time in 13 games. Anton Lillard had 27 points and 11 rebounds in victory; Seth Dugan had 17 and 11 in defeat.

Toledo 63, Akron 52. Jaelean Sanford led the Rockets (19-4) with 17 points. Akron (13-9) got 19 from Tyler Cheese.

Kent State 70, Miami (Oh) 67. Inkster's Jaylin Walker made 4 free throws in the final 22 seconds as Kent (17-5) stayed within range of Bowling Green in the MAC East. Walker finished with 27 points.

St. Louis 73, Dayton 60. Dayton (15-8) drops two games back in the loss column in the A10 race.

Other Games
#7 Michigan 77, Rutgers 65.
Illinois 79, #9 Michigan State 74. What the heck? Ten days ago MSU looked like a final 4 team--now they've lost three in a row, the last two to two of the B10's bottom feeders, Indiana and Illinois. Sure, they lost Josh Langford, but c'mon. State shot over 51% tonight, but turned it over 24 times, including 9 by Cassius Winston. The Illini (8-15) got out to a big early lead. State finally got going and caught them with about 6 minutes left, but that seemed to take everything out of the Spartans (18-5), who faded down the stretch.

#1 Tennessee 72, Missouri 60.
#2 Duke 80, Boston College 55. 16 points and 17 rebounds for Zion.
#5 Kentucky 76, South Carolina 48.
#8 North Carolina 113, North Carolina State 96. Luke May had 31 points and 12 boards for UNC (18-4).

St. John's 70, #10 Marquette 69. St. John's (17-6) really needed this one to solidify their claim to an at-large bid. Marquette's Markus Howard missed a three for the win with 7 seconds left. Marquette got one last chance when Marvin Clark, an 80% free throw shooter, missed both with 2 seconds left. Marquette's Sam Hauser got the rebound but the Eagles (19-4) were unable to get off a shot. Shamorie Ponds led the St. John's effort with 28.

Kansas State 74, #14 Kansas 67. K State (17-5) doesn't get too many wins over its in-state rival.
#22 Florida State 80, Syracuse 62.

Auburn 76, Florida 62.

Loyola 86, Drake 64. Loyola (15-9) took over sole possession of 1st place in the MVC with a blow win over 3rd place Drake.
Valparaiso 69, Illinois State 53. One of the MVC pre-season faves, Illinois State (14-9) had won 5 of 6 to tie Loyola for first, but Loyola's old Horizon pal helped out the Ramblers tonight.

Wednesday, February 6

Titan Non-Conference Opponents
Temple 81, Connecticut 63. Temple (17-6) has almost no margin for error in their quest for an at-large bid. Tonight they played well, shooting over 50% and committing just 5 turnovers. UConn (13-10) looks likely to miss the tournament for the 3d straight year. That hasn't happened since Jim Calhoun's first three years as coach in the late 1980s.

Bucknell 84, Loyola (Md) 72. As usual, Andrew Kostenka scored a bunch of points (29), and as usual, Loyola (8-15) lost anyway. Bucknell (14-8) leads the Patriot by a half-game over Lehigh.

Other Games
#14 Villanova 66, Creighton 59 (OT). Villanova (19-4) becomes the first Big East team to open 10-0 in conference since Connecticut in 1999.
#19 Wisconsin 56, Minnesota 51.
#21 LSU 92, Mississippi State 88 (OT).
#24 Maryland 60, Nebraska 45.

Miami (Fl) 62, Notre Dame 47.
Georgetown 76, Providence 67.
St. Bonaventure 51, Duquesne 49.
Texas 84, Baylor 72.
Colorado 84, UCLA 73. The Bruins (12-11) are 5-5 since firing Steve Alford.

Thursday, February 7

Horizon
Northern Kentucky 97, Detroit 65. We're just not a good team, and we are not playing well at all. Oakland showed everybody how to defend Davis. Starting with the OU game, he's shooting 32% from three, and has at least 4 turnovers in every game, in large part because he's trying to dribble through, around, or just into double teams. No one else seems able to step up and make the open shot, and the Horizon refs are letting teams grab, block and hand check Davis remorsely when he's trying to move without the ball. Somebody's gotta figure something out. The Titans are now in 7th place in the HL, a game ahead of 8th place YSU.

Wright State 76, Oakland 62. WSU (14-11, 8-4) opened the second half with an 18-0 run, wiping out a six point halftime deficit and then some. Five different guys scored their first 6 buckets of the half. Oakland (11-14, 7-5) got 16 points and 10 rebounds from Brad Brechting.

Youngstown State 72, Milwaukee 71. The Penguins win their third in a row on a Garrett Covington three pointer at the buzzer. Darius Roy had a fine game for Milwaukee with 20 points on 8-12 shooting, 10 rebounds, and 7 assists, and looked to be the hero of the game after hitting his first two free throw attempts of the game to give the Panthers a 4 point lead with just 12 seconds left. But it took YSU's Darius Quisenberry just 4 seconds to score at the other end, then convert a free throw for an old-fashioned three point play. Roy was fouled immediately after the in-bounds but this time made just 1 of 2 free throws, setting the stage for Covington's game-winner.The loss drops Milwaukee (9-15, 4-7) into the dreaded 9th spot in the standings. YSU moves up to 8th at 5-7 in league play, 9-16 overall.

Green Bay 82, Cleveland State 65. Green Bay (12-12, 6-5) had no trouble with the Vikings (6-19, 1-11). Sandy Cohen had a good night with 18 points, 7 assists, 6 rebounds, and 3 steals.

Titan Non-Conference Opponents

Games You've Been Waiting For
#4 Gonzaga 92, San Francisco 62. Early on it looked like USF (17-6) might challenge Gonzaga (22-2) in the WCC, but the Zags have demolished the Dons twice, and look even more like the class of the WCC than usual.

#12 Houston 77, Central Florida 68.
#20 Iowa 77, Indiana 72.
#25 Cincinnati 69, Memphis 64.

Ohio State 74, Penn State 70.
Washington 67, Arizona 60. The Huskies (19-4) stay unbeaten in the PAC 12.
Wofford 78, East Tennessee State 76 (OT). 1st place Wofford (20-4) wins an overtime showdown against 2nd place ETSU in the Southern Conference. The biggest lead of the game for either team was 6 points; in the final 14 minutes of play, it was 3 points. Wofford's Fletcher McGee scored 11 points in the extra period to finish with 32.

Hofstra 102, Elon 61. CAA leader Hofstra (20-4) led this game 25-2 within moments of the first TV timeout, and led by 35 at halftime.

Friday, February 8
Titan Non-Conference Opponents
Akron 72, Kent State 53. Akron (14-9) went on a 19-2 run midway through the second half to blow open what had been a very tight game to that point. The loss probably kills any chance Kent State (17-6) had to win the MAC Eaat.

A few other games

Harvard 98, Columbia 96 (3 OT). Wow, triple overtime in Cambridge. Bryce Aiken had 44 for Harvard (11-7). Columbia (6-13) forced the first OT with a trey by Gabe Stefanini at the buzzer. Harvard earned the second on an Aiken trey at the buzzer. No such heroics in the second OT--Aiken missed a trey for the win with 2 seconds left. In the third OT, Stefanini missed a jumper to tie with 4 seconds left.

Yale 74, Princeton 60. Harvard, Yale (14-4), and Princeton (12-6) are left tied atop the Ivy League standings.

St. Joe's 91, St. Louis 61.

Canisius 81, Rider 80. A third straight loss for Rider (12-11), which had started MAAC play 5-0. Canisius (10-13) rallied from 6 down in the final 1:40.
Siena 51, Manhattan 49. Siena (12-12) almost blew an 11 point lead with under 5 minutes to play, but held on in the Bronx.
Quinnipiac 66, Iona 65. Quinnipiac (12-10) did blow a big lead, but won it on a free throw with 1 second left.
These three close games left 5 teams atop the MAAC with 4 losses each: idle Monmouth, Canisius, Rider, Siena, and Quinnipiac. Monmouth, which was 1-12 in non-conference play, has 1 more win than the others.

Saturday, February 9

Horizon
Wright State 83, Detroit 60. Nice game for Harrison Curry.

Northern Kentucky 79, Oakland 64. Northern Kentucky won its 15th straight home game, rallying from a 5 point halftime deficit. Drew McDonald had 21 points and 13 rebounds for the Norse (20-4, 10-3).

UIC 76, IUPUI 75. UIC blew an 18 point second half lead, and, with 1:26 left to play, IUPUI took its first lead, 75-74, since the first minute of the game. UIC got back on top on a Marcus Ottey layup with 26 seconds to play, and IUPUI in the closing seconds missed three shots for the win. By winning for the 4th time in 5 games, UIC (13-12, 7-5), the preseason consensus choice for 3rd, moves into ... 3rd. As the sample size grows, the league conforms to predictions. IUPUI falls to 14-11, 6-6.

Youngstown State 96, Green Bay 77. Watch out, Horizon, the Penguins are rolling! The 'Guins have now won 4 straight for the first time since 2013. Youngstown (10-16, 6-7) shot a sizzling 65% in dropping 51 points on Green Bay in the first half.

Cleveland State 78, Milwaukee 68. Tyree Appleby had a triple double with 19 points, 11 rebounds, and 11 assists as Cleveland State (7-19, 2-11) picked up a win at home. It's the first triple double in CSU history. The loss was the 5th in a row for Milwaukee (9-16, 4-8).

HL Standings, with Tie Breaks:
1. Northern Kentucky 10-3
2. Wright State 9-4
3. UIC 7-5
4. Oakland 7-6
5. IUPUI 6-6
6. Green Bay 6-6
7. Detroit 6-7
8. Youngstown State 6-7
9. Milwaukee 4-8
10. Cleveland State 2-11

Titan Non-Conference Opponents
Toledo 78, Bowling Green 71. Toledo (20-4) won the showdown of the MAC West and East leaders. Demajeo Wiggins had his 15th double-double of the year with 16 points and 11 rebounds for Bowling Green (16-7).

Ball State 79, Western Michigan 59. Western's losing streak hits 10 in a row, and 13 of 14.

Eastern Michigan 57, Northern Illinois 49. Paul Jackson had 23 points and 8 assists for EMU (10-13).

Miami (Oh) 79, Ohio 59. OU drops to 11-11. Miami (13-11) is gunning for its first winning season in 10 years.

Butler 73, Georgetown 69. Butler (14-10) is still clinging to the bubble.

DePaul 74, Xavier 62. Trailing by 4 with 5 minutes to play, DePaul (13-9) went on a 16-0 run to dispatch Xavier (11-13), which has lost 6 straight.

Dayton 77, Rhode Island 48. Visiting Dayton crushed Rhody, leaving the Flyers (16-8) a half game back of VCU and Davidson in a tight A10 race.

Tulsa 76, Temple 58. A body blow to Temple's at-large hopes. The Owls are 17-7 and have lost 3 of 5.

Colgate 75, Loyola 72. I once met a man who's first name was "Colgate." Pretty campus. Andrew Kostenka had his usual 25 points for Loyola (8-17).

Other Games
#7 Michigan 61, #19 Wisconsin 52. Michigan (22-2) looked more like its early-season self today. John Teske had 17 points and 12 rebounds.
#9 Michigan State 79, Minnesota 55. The Spartans (19-5) also recovered their mojo today after 3 consecutive losses.
#23 Buffalo 90, Central Michigan 76. The Chips (16-7) led by 18 with just under 8 minutes left in the first half, and were still up 9 with 5 minutes gone in the second half, when Buffalo (20-3) launched a 16-0 run, then pulled away in the final 10 minutes.

#1 Tennessee 73, Florida 61.
#2 Duke 81, #3 Virginia 71. In the day's big game, Duke (21-2) became the first team this year to score 75 or more points against UVa (20-2). RJ Barrett had 26 and Zion Williamson 18.

#4 Gonzaga 94, St. Mary's 46. Not the usual Gonzaga/St. Mary's squeaker.
#5 Kentucky 71, Mississippi State 67. The Wildcats (20-3) host Tennessee next Saturday with a #1 seed on the line--assuming they can get past LSU on Tuesday.

#6 Nevada 91, New Mexico 62. Nevada (23-1) avenges its only loss with ease. It's not quite clear how New Mexico (10-13) beat the Wolfpack by 28 last month.
#8 North Carolina 88, Miami (Fl) 85 (OT). Miami (10-13) made 12 of 14 three-point shots in the second half, but it still wasn't enough as they fall in OT. Freshman Colby White had 33 for UNC (19-4).

#10 Marquette 66, #14 Villanova 65. Markus Howard had 38 points and Marquette (20-4) stopped Villanova (19-5) on the final possession to hold on for a win. The loss snapped Villanova's 11 game winning streak.

Clemson 59, #11 Virginia Tech 51. My sense for a while has been that Tech (19-5) is a bit overrated.
#13 Kansas 84, Oklahoma State 72.
#15 Purdue 81, Nebraska 62.
#22 Florida State 80, #16 Louisville 75 (OT).
TCU 92, #17 Iowa State 83.
#18 Texas Tech 66, Oklahoma 54.
#21 Louisiana State 83, Auburn 78.

Massachusetts 54, Davidson 51. Last place UMass (9-15) gives hope to a bunch of A10 teams by ambushing first place Davidson (17-6). Keon Clergeot hit a game winning three with 5 seconds left.

Texas Southern 95, Prairie View 90. Second place Texas Southern (12-11) still trails Prairie View (11-12) by 2 games in the SWAC.

Sam Houston State 90, Abilene Christian 85 (2OT). Sam Houston jumped out to a 21 point lead in this battle of the first and second place teams in the Southland Conference. Abilene Christian (19-5) battled back and briefly took the lead, but found themselves down again by 5 with under 20 seconds to play. They forced the OT on a last second three, but eventually Sam Houston (16-8) won its 12th in a row. All 10 starters in this game scored in double figures.

New Mexico State 67, Grand Canyon 64. In yet another 1st vs. 2nd match up, New Mexico State (20-4) held off a late Grand Canyon (14-9) rally to open up a two game lead in the WAC.

Sunday, February 10

A Few Sunday Games of Note
#13 Houston 65, #25 Cincinnati 58. Houston is 23-1.
#20 Iowa 70, Northwestern 69. Iowa (19-5) trailed by 15 with 4:30 to play, and still by 11 after Northwestern's Ryan Taylor scored with 2:09 left. They were still down 5 with 30 seconds left, but pulled it out on a three at the buzzer by Jordan Bohannan.

Loyola 56, Valparaiso 51. This pretty much knocks Valpo (13-12) out of the Missouri Valley Race. Loyola (16-9) now has a 2 game lead over Drake, Illinois State, and Missouri State, with Valpo 3 back.

Notre Dame 69, Georgia Tech 59.
Ohio State 55, Indiana 52.
Memphis 78, Connecticut 71.

Monday, February 11
Always a quiet day.

Some Games
#4 Virginia 69, #8 North Carolina 61. Good game. UVa stays teed up for a #1 seed.
#14 Kansas 82, TCU 77 (OT). Trailing by 9 with under 5 minutes to play, TCU went on a 13-0 run, but couldn't hold their 4 point lead. Kansas (19-6) never trailed in the OT. TCU (17-6) will be in the Big Tournament barring a complete collapse in the next three weeks, but this was a big seeding game for them.

Bucknell 87, Lehigh 75. First place Bucknell (16-8) used a 52 point second half to rally past second place Lehigh (16-7) in the Patriot Conference.
Baylor 59, Oklahoma 53.

Tuesday, February 12

Titan Opponents:
Eastern Michigan 66, Ohio U. 57.
Bowling Green 79, Central Michigan 72.
Western Michigan 76 , Northern Illinois 74. WMU (7-17) snaps a 10 game losing streak.
#25 Buffalo 76, Akron 70.
St. John's 77, Butler 73 (OT).

Other Games
Penn State75, #6 Michigan 69. John Beilein is ejected from a game for the 1st time since 1979, and PSU (9-15) picked up just its second conference win. Michigan (22-3) peaked too early, and we'll have to see if they can get their groove back.

#11 Michigan State 67, #20 Wisconsin 58.

#2 Duke 71, #16 Louisville 69. The Cardinals blew a 23 point lead.
#19 LSU 73, #5 Kentucky 71. LSU won on a controversial put back at the buzzer. It's just their 6th win ever at Kentucky, which is pretty remarkable when you consider how long they've been conference mates, and that LSU usually puts a decent product on the floor.

#10 Marquette 92,DePaul 73.
#24 Maryland 70, 12 Purdue 56.
#18 Kansas State 71 Texas A&M 64
