Titan Non-Conference Opponents
Xavier 64, Creighton 61. Xavier (12-13) forced an OT with 5 unanswered points in the final 45 second of regulation, then held Creighton scoreless for the final four minutes and change of the extra period to win. A big blow to Creighton (13-12), which was in the "first 4 out" in Lunardi's last bracket.

Temple 82, SMU 74. Shizz Alston had 28 for Temple (18-7).

Loyola (Md) 86, American 84. Isaiah Hart knocked down a couple free throws with 1 second remaining for visiting Loyola (9-17). Andrew Kostecka led the Greyhounds with 31 points.

Other Games
#1 Tennessee 85, South Carolina 73.
#13 Villanova 85, Providence 67
#15 Texas Tech 78, Oklahoma State 50.
#17 Florida State 88, Wake Forest 66.
#22 Virginia Tech 76, Georgia Tech 68.

Seton Hall 90, Georgetown 75. These teams are jockeying around in the at-large bid race.
Mississippi 60, Auburn 55. Same here.
NC State 73, Syracuse 58. And here.

Bradley 61, Loyola 54. Bradley (14-12), at least temporarily, derails Loyola's drive to the MVC regular season title. The Ramblers lead over Drake is cut to 1 game.

La Salle 73, Duquesne 72. After a 2-10 non-conference season, La Salle is 6-5 in A10 play.
VCU 81, Richmond 60. VCU (18-6) moves into a tie for first in the A10 with Davidson.
George Mason 80, Masschusetts 75 (OT). GMU (15-10) needed an extra period to beat struggling Massachusetts (9-16), but stays in the A10 race, a half game behind VCU and Davidson.

Liberty 74, Lipscomb 66. Liberty (22-5) avenged an earlier loss to Lipscomb (20-5) by beating the Bison in Nashville. The loss snaps Lipscomb's 11 game winning streak and leaves the two tied atop the Atlantic Sun with 11-1 conference records.

Campbell 87, Hampton 84. Campbell's Chris Clemons, the nation's leading scorer, had 48 points in a win over Hampton tonight, incluiding 22 of 24 from the foul line. That overshadowed a 34 point game from Hampton's Kalin Fisher.

The HL is soooo tight.

Detroit 90, Milwaukee 84. The Titans snap a losing streak--man, those final 4 minutes took a long time--and are now in tied with OU for 5th. The Titans win when at least two players other than Antoine score in double figures. Tonight it was Josh, Curry, and King. Making 31 of 38 free throws sure didn't hurt, either.

Green Bay 66, Oakland 54. Green Bay (13-13, 7-6) never trailed in this one, and finally took control with a 12-0 run early in the second half. Tank Hemphill had a double-double with 13 points and 10 rebounds. Oakland's Brad Brechting continued his recent tear with 15 points and 15 rebounds in defeat. The Grizzlies are 11-16, 7-7.

Youngstown State 75, IUPUI 73. Youngstown's Donel Cathcart hit a three with 8 seconds left, and Nick Rogers' effort to return the favor with 2 seconds left was off the mark, giving YSU its 5th straight win. Earlier the Penguins (11-16, 7-7) had blown a 15 point second half lead. Freshman Darius Quisenberry led YSU with 17 points and 8 assists. DJ McCall had 16 points for IUPUI (14-12, 6-7).

UIC 81, Cleveland State 77. Led by 16 second half points from Tyree Appleby, CSU (7-20, 2-12) rallied from 13 down to tie it with 10 seconds to play, but UIC (14-12, 8-5) pulled it out with a bucket by Marcus Ottey, a CSU turnover, and a couple of Tarkus Ferguson free throws.

HL Standings:
1. Northern Kentucky 10-3
2. Wright State 9-4
3. UIC 8-5
4. Green Bay 7-6
5. Oakland 7-7
6. Detroit 7-7
7. Youngstown State 7-7
8. IUPUI 6-7
9. Milwaukee 4-9
10. Cleveland State 2-12

The Titans could be as high as 4th or as low as 8th after Saturday.

Titan Non-Conference Opponents
Kent State 82, Western Michigan 63. Kent State pulled away with a 51-point second half. Jaylin Walker had 25 for the Flash (18-6). WMU drops to 7-18.

Other Games
#3 Gonzaga 73, Loyola Marymount 60. Loyola Marymount (17-9) trailed by just 1 at halftime.
#9 Houston 71, Connecticut 63.

Illinois 63, Ohio State 56. A home loss to Illinois isn't good for OSU's at-large plans.

Belmont 77, Tennessee State 66.
Murray State 73, Austin Peay 71. Ja Morant haad 32 points, 6 rebounds, and 7 assists for Murray State. The Racers (20-4) and Belmont (20-4) are left tied atop the Ohio Valley, with Austin Peay (18-7) a game behind.

Omaha 85, South Dakota State 84. Omaha came back from an 18 point second-half deficit and won it on a Mitch Hahn jumper at the buzzer. Hahn finished with 22 points, 8 rebounds and 7 assists, as Omaha (15-9) moves to within a half game of first place SD State (20-7) in the Summit. Freshman David Jenkins had 34, and Mike Daum, the nation's #5 scorer, added 29 for SD State.

Sacred Heart 105, Bryant 104. Don't see many scores like this, especially with no overtimes.
Montana 83, Weber State 80. Montana (18-6) leads the Big Sky. Sayeed Pridgett had 29 points and 16 rebounds against third place Weber State (15-10).

Friday, February 15

Horizon
Wright State 81, Northern Kentucky 77. Wright State moves into a tie for first in the HL, although as it stands now, NKU still holds the tie-breaker by virtue of a win over 3rd place UIC. Playing in Dayton, the Norse broke a 20-all tie with a 13-0 run midway through the first half, then pushed the lead to 16 points with under 5:00 left in the half. Wright State countered with a 13-0 run of their own, with the first 10 points all coming from Billy Wampler, and NKU eventually entered the locker room up 5. The teams went back and forth with a series of mini-runs in the second half, and were tied at 75-all with 1:20 left. Wampler then hit a layup, and he and Loudon Love each made one of two free throws for a 4 point Raider lead. After another Norse miss, Alan Vest clinched it with two free throws with 10 seconds to play. Wampler finished with 29 and Loudon 20 for Wright State (16-11, 10-4). Drew McDonald led Northern (20-7, 10-4) with 23 points.

Titan Non-Conference Opponents
#25 Buffalo 88, Toledo 82. Milan's Nick Perkins had a career high 26 points as Buffalo rallied to beat Toledo in Savage Hall. Toledo (20-5) really had to have this win to have any chance of entering the at-large pool for the NCAAs. For a while it looked good, as the Rockets jumped out to a 17-4 lead, and Buffalo star CJ Massingburg picked up his third personal with 4:30 left in the first half and Toledo still up by 10. But the Bulls didn't panic, and finally got their first lead midway through the second half. Barring a complete collapse in the next two weeks, Buffalo (22-3) looks good for the at-large field, so the MAC can still hope for two entries this year with a conference tournament upset.

Other Games
Harvard 78, Princeton 69.
Davidson 80, St. Joseph's 72. Davidson (19-6) takes a half game lead in the A10 race.
Canisius 72, Fairfield 68. Canisius, just 12-13 overall, slips into first place in the MAAC. It's a very down year for the MAAC, with only third place Quinnipiac above .500 for the season.

Georgia State 90, South Alabama 81. Ray McCallum's squad, now 18-8 overall, moves to within a half game of Texas State for the Sunbelt Conference lead.

Saturday, February 16

Horizon

Green Bay 82, Detroit 73. Good game by Green Bay (14-13, 8-6). Davis wasn't shooting well and the Titan offense collapsed into playground ball. Just 5 assists today.

Oakland 89, Milwaukee 73. When Oakland signed 6-11 Brad Brechting in 2015, I thought they'd done very well. For three and a half years (including an injury redshirt year) Brechting did almost nothing. But the guy is suddenly on fire, averaging 20.2 points, 10.5 rebounds, and 1.8 blocks over OU's last 6 games. Today he had 21, 6 and 4 in pacing OU (12-16, 8-7) past the Panthers. Vance Johnson had 25 points and 9 rebounds for Milwaukee (9-18, 4-10)

Youngstown State 81, UIC 73. YSU (12-16, 8-7) won it's 6th in a row behind 37 points from freshman Darius Quisenberry. This is YSU's longest winning streak since 1998. The Penguins, usually one of the league's sad-sacks in attendance, drew almost 5000 fans for this one. A little winning streak can go a long way.

Cleveland State 89, IUPUI 86. The Vikings (8-20, 3-12) rallied from an early 15 point deficit, then watched their own 9 point lead turn into a late three point deficit, before rallying again to win. Tyree Appleby led the way with 26 points and 11 assists. The CSU win keeps the Titans from falling all the way to 8th place, as IUPUI falls to 6-8 in the conference, 14-13 overall.

Horizon Standings (with current tiebreakers)
1. Northern Kentucky 10-4
2. Wright State 10-4
3. Green Bay 8-6
4. UIC 8-6
5. Oakland 8-7
6. YSU 8-7
7. Detroit 7-8
8. IUPUI 6-8
9. Milwaukee 4-10
10. Cleveland State 3-12

The Titans magic number to clinch a tournament spot is 1, any Titan win or Milwaukee defeat will do the job.

Titan Non-Conference Opponents
Kent State 71, Eastern Michigan 58. EMU's terribly disappointing season continues. Picked to win the MAC West, the Emus are just 11-13, with 4 of those wins over non-D1 competition. Kent State is 19-6.

Western Michigan 84, Miami (Oh) 79 (OT). Sophomore Kawanise Wilkins had a career best 26 points and Western (8-18) won in overtime.

Central Michigan 87, Ohio 80. Central (17-8), behind Shawn Roundtree's 22 points, outdid the Bobcats (11-13), who got 24 points and 13 boards from Ben Vander Plas.

Bowling Green 87, Northern Illinois 67. Detroit soph Justin Turner had 34 points for Bowling Green today, and the Falcons (18-7) moved back into a tie with Buffalo atop the MAC East.

Ball State 57, Akron 56. Both teams are 14-11. They were a combined 7-42 from three points today.

Xavier 75, Providence 62. The Musketeers (13-13) dominated the second half after trailing by 6 at the break. Tyrique Jones led Xavier with 19 points and 12 rebounds.

Butler 91, DePaul 78. Butler (15-11) refuses to die in their at-large quest. Lunardi had them in the "first 4 out" before today's win.

VCU 69, Dayton 68. Dayton overcame a 22 point second half deficit with a 31-8 run ending with a big Obadiah Toppin dunk for the lead with just under 5 minutes to play. But VCU pulled itself together and the two squads traded leads until Marcus Evans' layup with 6 seconds left provided the winning margin. VCU (19-6) moves into a tie for first in the A10, while Dayton (16-9) falls 2 back with six to play.

Temple 70, South Florida 69 (OT). Temple (19-7) can't afford to lose many games, and just managed to escape with a win today. The Owls scored just 20 points in the first half, but rallied to force the extra period. There, with the score tied and one second left, Shiz Alston missed the first of two free throws but made the second for the win. USF is 17-8.

Other Games
#6 Michigan 65, #24 Maryland 52. A nice defensive game for the Wolverines (23-3), holding the Terps (19-7) to 36% shooting and winning the turnovers 16-6.

#5 Kentucky 86, #1 Tennessee 69. The Wildcats (21-4) opened the second half with a 14-0 run to blow open this SEC showdown. Is Kentucky now in line for a #1 seed? Does Tennessee (23-2) drop a line?

#2 Duke 94, North Carolina State 78. 32 points for Williamson, a triple-double for Barnett.
#3 Gonzaga 79, San Diego 67. Rui Hachimura had 22 points and 10 rebounds as Gonzaga (25-2) got past a stubborn San Diego team (16-11).
#4 Virginia 60, Notre Dame 54. Virginia's flagship school beats South Bend's flagship school.

#7 Nevada 82, Wyoming 49. Nevada and Houston are tied for the best record in the country at 24-1.
#8 North Carolina 95, Wake Forest 57.
#12 Purdue 76, Penn State 64.
#14 Kansas 78, West Virginia 53. Kansas has won or shared the Big 12 regular season title for 14 straight years. Today's win leaves them tied for second with Texas Tech, 0.5 behind Kansas State--who happen to be the Jayhawks next two opponents. Today the Jayhawks (20-6) held WVU (10-15) to 16 first half points.

#15 Texas Tech 86, Baylor 61.
#16 Louisville 56, Clemson 55. After blowing a 23 point second half lead against Duke earlier in the week, Louisville faced another meltdown. A free throw put Cardinals up by 7 with 17 seconds left, Marcquise Reed hit a three for Clemson with 9 seconds left. Louisville turned it over on the inbounds and another Reed three made it a 1 point game with 3 seconds left. Louisville then turned it over again on the inbounds, but Reed missed a hurried jumper for the win.

#17 Florida State 69, Georgia Tech 47.
#23 Iowa State 78, #18 Kansas State 64.
#19 Louisiana State 83, Georgia 79.
#21 Iowa 71, Rutgers 69. Gio Baker hit a three with three ticks left on the clock, giving Rutgers the lead and an apparent victory. Iowa's in-bounds pass went the length of the court, was deflected by a Rutgers player, and ended up in the hands of Iowa's Joe Weiskamp, who heaved up a three from the corner just before the buzzer to give Iowa a victory.

#22 Virginia Tech 70, Pittsburgh 64.

Oklahoma 71, TCU 62. Two bubbly teams.
Auburn 64, Vanderbilt 53. In his third season at Vanderbilt, Coach Bryce Drew is 0-12 in the SEC.
Mississippi State 75, Arkansas 64.
Mississippi 75, Missouri 65.
Central Florida 79, Memphis 72. UCF is 19-5, and in third place in the AAC. Right now, Joe Lunardi has them in the field.

Drake 84, Valparaiso 79. Drake (20-7) claims its first 20-win season since 2008, and closes to within a half-game of first place Loyola in the MVC. Valpo falls to 13-14.

Wofford 80, UNC-Greensboro 50. Wofford (23-4) crushed second place Greensboro (22-5) in Southern Conference play. The Southern Conference is stronger than usual this year (12 in conference NET, with 4 teams in the top 75), and Wofford is a really good team, with a 20-point road win at South Carolina among its 23 victories. They've won 14 straight games, second longest current streak in the country, and are ranked #29 in NET. Their star, Fletcher Magee (a good Southern Conference name), had 26 points tonight.

Washington 72, Washington State 70. Washington (20-5) leads the PAC 12 by 3 games.
Stanford 104, UCLA 80. The Bruins are below .500 since the coaching change.
USC 89, California 66. Cal (5-20) is winless in the PAC 12. We woulda won that game.

Sunday, February 17

Big Games Around the Country
#11 Michigan State 62, Ohio State 44. OSU (16-9) led by 6 at halftime, but scored just 13 points in the second half. State held OSU without a field goal for the final 7:30 of the game, outscoring the Buckeyes 20-2. It was a costly win for MSU (21-5), however, as Nick Ward broke his left hand--though the Spartans say it's a mere hairline fracture and they hope he'll be back yet this year.

#9 Houston 85, Tulane 50.
St. John's 71, #13 Villanova 65. St. John's removed any doubt about whether they belong in the NCAA field. The Johnnies used a 20-5 run midway through the second half to overcome a 14 point deficit. LJ Figueroa led St. John's (19-7) with 24 points and 12 rebounds. Villanova (20-6) shot just 33% from the floor.

Seton Hall 81, Creighton 75. Seton Hall (16-9) is on the bubble. Creighton (13-13) is not.

Missouri State 65, Loyola 61. Loyola (16-11), Missouri State (15-12) and idle Drake are left in a three way tie for first in the MVC. MIssouri State has won the MVC just once since joining the conference in 1991; Drake just once since it's powerhouse days of the 1960s.

Quinnipiac 107, Siena 100 (3 OT). Quinnipiac's Cameron Young scored 55 points in this triple overtime thriller that left the Bobcats tied with Canisius atop the MAAC. Cameron made 15 of 25 from the field in setting MAAC and Quinnipiac records for points in a game. It was the third highest total in an NCAA game in the last 20 years. The game seems a bit reminiscent of the famous Hersey Hawkins/Archie Tullos shootout, as Siena's Jalen Pickett answered with 46 points on 14 of 26 shooting. In fact, the AP has been incorrectly reporting that this is the most points by opposing players since LSU's Pete Maravich had 64 and Kentucky's Dan Issel 51 in a 1970 matchup won by Kentucky. But Hawkins (63) and Tullos (49) in fact tallied 112 points to today's 101 point outburst--and they didn't need no stinkin' three overtimes to do it. Pickett, a freshman, also had 13 assists. He's averaged just 14 points per game this year. Young, a senior who also had a double-double with 10 rebounds, is a 21 point per game scorer. Meanwhile, it appears that nobody wants to win the MAAC. Six teams are now bunched within a game of one another at the top, and every team that moves into first seems to immediately lose.

A typically quiet Monday in college hoops. Why aren't George Washington and James Madison playing today?

Games Around the Country
#3 Virginia 64, #20 Virginia Tech 58.
#22 Wisconsin 64, Illinois 58.
#23 Kansas State 65, West Virginia 51.

Oklahoma State 68, Texas Christian 61. A blow to TCU's at-large status, though absent a couple more slip-ups they're probably good.
Norfolk State 76, North Carolina A&T 58. These two entered the night tied atop the MEAC at 9-1 in conference play.

Tuesday, February 19

Titan Non-Conference Opponents:

Eastern Michigan 76, Toledo 69. Eastern (12-14) finally played like the team people thought they would be. Elijah Minnie had 23. Toledo (20-6) seemed listless after their tough loss to Buffalo on Saturday.

Central Michigan 84, Kent State 74. Kent State (19-7) falls 3 games behind Buffalo and Bowling Green in the MAC East race. Central (18-8) closes to within a game of Toledo in the West.

Bowling Green 73, Akron 69. This Bowling Green team is no fluke. They've won 15 of 17. Detroit native Justin Tuner had 23 tonight and leads the Falcons (19-7) at 18.8 ppg. Akron is 14-12.

#25 Buffalo 114, Ohio 67. Ohio (11-14) has lost 6 in a row.

Dayton 74, Davidson 73. Dayton (17-9) stayed in the A10 race by edging the first-place Wildcats in Davidson. Davidson (19-7) came back from a 19 point deficit with under 10 minutes to play to tie it with 11 seconds left. Dayton star Josh Cunningham was fouled on the next possession and made one free throw with 3 seconds left.

Other Games
#4 Kentucky 66, Missouri 58. Missouri rallied from 18 down but ran out of time.
#5 Tennessee 58, Vanderbilt 46.
#15 Purdue 48, Indiana 46. Purdue (19-7) won despite shooting 32% from the field, 20% from three, and 44% from the foul line. Carsen Edwards had a 4-42 night, including 0-10 from three. But Indiana (13-13) was just 28/21/61, and turned it over more.

#16 Florida State 77, Clemson 64.
Baylor 73, #19 Iowa State 69.
#24 Maryland 66, #21 Iowa 65. This game had 6 lead changes and 2 ties in the final 3 minutes.

Wake Forest 75, Notre Dame 68.
VCU 76, Rhode Island 42. Coupled with Dayton's win over Davidson, tonight's easy win left VCU (20-6) in sole possession of first place in the Atlantic 10.

Drake 77, Bradley 68. You know, it won't happen, but a conference composed of the current MVC privates (Drake, Bradley, Loyola, Evansville, Valpo) plus Detroit and a couple other privates in the general area (Belmont? Lipscomb? Oral Roberts?) would be pretty good for us. Anyway, five players scored in double figures as Drake (21-7) moved a half game ahead of Loyola in the MVC race. Until the final 15 seconds, the biggest lead in tonight's game for either team, was 6 points.

Iona 81, Quinnipiac 77. I mentioned in Saturday's scoreboard that nobody wanted to win the MAAC--as soon as a team moved into first place, they lose. Happened again, as Quinnipiac falls after moving into first place over the weekend. The top 6 teams in the league are within a half game of one another.

Wednesday, February 20

Titan Non-Conference Opponents
#11 Marquette 79, Butler 69. Butler (15-12) really needed this win for its NCAA chances, and had an 8 point lead early in the second half. But Marquette (22-4) rallied behind Markus Howard's 28 points for the win. Sean McDermott had 27 for Butler.

Xavier 70, Seton Hall 69. Xavier led by 16 after scoring with 6:23 to play, and lost all but 1 point of it. With 3 seconds to go, Shavar Reynolds missed a three that would have completed the rally. The Musketeers (14-13) are trying to avoid their first losing season since 1996. Seton Hall (16-10) is trying to hold on for an at-large bid.

Navy at Loyola (Md) was postponed. Who'd of thought that Navy would be deterred by a couple inches of snow?

Other Games
#10 Michigan State 71, Rutgers 60. State trailed by 7 at the half.

#8 North Carolina 88, #1 Duke 72. The TarHeels (21-5) roughed up Duke (23-3) good. Zion Williamson went down with an injury on Duke's first possession, and despite a combined 60 points from fellow freshmen RJ Barrett and Cameron Reddish, it was all UNC all the way. The Tar Heels never trailed and led by double digits for the final 18 minutes. Luke Maye scored 30 and Cameron Johnson scored 26 for UNC. Williamson hurt his knee when his shoe just fell apart, and his foot popped right through where the the rubber sole meets the body of the shoe. I wonder how much Duke's shoe contract is worth? No word yet on how serious Williamson's injury is, but knees are always scary.

San Diego State 65, #6 Nevada 57. San Diego State (17-9) stops Nevada's win streak at 10.
Florida 82, #13 LSU 77 (OT). Florida (15-11) gets a huge road win. Lunardi had them as his last team in the field before tonight.
Georgetown 85, #17 Villanova 73. Georgetown (16-10) is trying to insert itself in the at-large discussions. 'Nova has lost 3 of 4.
Syracuse 69, #18 Louisville 49. Louisville is another team that is not playing good ball right now.

Mississippi State 68, Georgia 67. With 1 second left and the game tied, Georgia was assessed a technical foul when a fan threw a stuffed animal on the court. Quinn Weatherspoon made a free throw and that was that. Look, Bulldog fans: it's a shoe you throw. A shoe, got it? Not a stuffed animal. Bush league!

Loyola 70, Evansville 58. Hot MVC action! Loyola moves back into a tie with Drake for first place.
Ohio State 63, Northwestern 49.
Providence 78, St. John's 59.
Creighton 79, DePaul 67. DePaul (13-12) is trying to squeeze out its first winning season since 2007, but lost at home to a so-so Creighton squad ((14-13).
NC State 89, Boston College 80 (OT).
Arizona State 80, Stanford 62.
Utah State 71, New Mexico 55. The Mountain West is counting on Utah State (21-6) to get it a second NCAA bid this year, but there's not many impressive wins on the resume.

Florida Gulf Coast 67, Lipscomb 61. Take Lipscomb back off the bubble. Some thought that they had played their way on.

I really don’t like the tech call against Georgia because of fan interference. I don’t know what the rule book says, but it seems unfair. One article I read on the incident mentioned a good point, what’s to stop a fan from posing as a fan from the opposing team and doing stuff like this?

Seems to me that the Miss State player should have only been able to reshoot the shot that involved the object being thrown on the court.

I get the argument that calling techs on a home team when their own fans cause interference makes schools work harder to prevent it. But it’s still unfortunate to see a game be decided on it. Can’t help wonder, if it were the same situation on a neutral court and the object was thrown by someone wearing neutral colors, how would refs handle that? They couldn’t call a tech against the opposing team in that situation for sure.

You need to add that Boeheim mowed down a pedestrian last night to the scoreboard. Really sad story. But man what a crazy night in college hoops. Biggest name in the game goes down with a blown shoe (very well might end his college career), fan assessed technical in a game with 0.5 left that might have NCAA tournament ramifications, and one of the all time great coaches kills a guy on his way home. Crazy!

Thursday, February 21

Horizon
Northern Kentucky 76, Youngstown State 69. I watched this game, the first time I've watched YSU since the last Titan game, and, despite tonight's loss, they are a lot better team than they were earlier in the year. But freshman wiz Darius Quisenberry was hurt at the beginning of the game, and playing on the road, the Penguins didn't have enough to top the league's best team. Naz Bohannon led YSU (12-17, 8-8) with 17 points, 8 rebounds, and 4 assists. Drew McDonald had 27 point and 13 rebounds for NKU (21-7, 11-4), including a perfect 12-12 from the line, including 4 in the final 30 seconds to help put the win on ice. The Titans can pull ahead of YSU in the conference standings by beating Oakland on Saturday.

Wright State 89, Cleveland State 59. This was close for a half, but Wright State (17-11, 11-4) pulled steadily away after the break to keep pace with Northern Kentucky. The Raiders shot 52% from both the floor and behind the arc. This finally, mercifully, mathematically eliminated Cleveland State (8-21, 3-13) from the Horizon tournament.

Titan Non-Conference Opponents

Loyola (Md) 79, Navy 70. All 5 Loyola starters scored in double figures. The Greyhounds are 10-18; Navy is 9-17.

Other Games
#7 Michigan 69, Minnesota 60. Michigan (24-3) held the Gophers (17-10) to just 18 first half points, and led by as much as 21 before a late Minnesota rally made the score look more respectable than it was.

#2 Gonzaga 92, Pepperdine 64.

Cincinnati 60, Central Florida 55. UCF (19-6) is on the bubble.
San Francisco 77, BYU 71.

South Dakota State 92, Fort Wayne 83. South Dakota State (22-7) knocks Fort Wayne (17-12) out of the Summit race. Those who follow the scoreboard closely know that Fort Wayne has had one of my favorite collegiate players, Jon Konchar, now wrapping up his senior year. In defeat tonight, Konchar had 27 points, 9 rebounds, 6 assists, 2 blocks, and 2 steals. That's kind of a typical night for the 6-5 Konchar, who averages 19.8 points, 8.3 rebounds, 5.5 assists, 1.9 steals and 0.9 blocks. He's closing in on 2000 career points--barring an injury, he'll get there next weekend. His career field goal percentage is 56.0% (55.8% this year), he has 180 career three pointers, shot at a 41.9% clip (38.9% this year). He'll almost certainly be a first team all-Summit League player for the 4th year in a row. He is Fort Wayne's all-time leading scorer and rebounder, 2nd in assists and steals. The only schools to offer him scholarships out of West Chicago High School were Fort Wayne and Chicago State.

Radford 87, Winthrop 81. With 4 games to play, Radford (19-8) moves 2.5 games up on second place Winthrop (17-10) in the Big South.
UMBC 65, Vermont 56. UMBC (18-10) closes to within a game of Vermont (21-6) for first place in the America East Conference.
St. Francis (Pa) 81, St. Francis (NY) 71. 1st place St. Francis (15-11) beats second place St. Francis (16-12) in the Northeast Conference.

Friday, February 22
IUPUI's win guarantees our Titans a spot in the Horizon Conference Tournament. I hope our goal is still more than being the #8 seed in the conference tournament, but we shouldn't totally knock that, either. Before the season began, I gathered 16 public pre-season predictions for the Titans, plus two computer predictions (Ken Pom and Sagarin). Seventeen of the 18 had the Titans missing the conference tournament. http://udtitanbasketball.freeforums.net ... 376/thread Now let's win out and get a good seed--a home game is still possible, though unlikely after the result in tonight's other league game.

Horizon League
Green Bay 63, UIC 62. UIC (14-14, 8-7) did one of its patented collapses, blowing a 19 point halftime lead at home against Green Bay (15-13, 9-6). It was a wild finish. Green Bay's JayQuan McCloud, an 86% free throw shooter, missed three straight from the line in the final 30 seconds, leaving UIC down a point and with the ball with 7 seconds left. But Kam Hankerson stole the ball to give Green Bay the win. Hankerson, from Novi, just kills the Titans, and he did it indirectly tonight--it's an unfortunate result for the Titans, because UIC is still one game ahead of Detroit, and will hold the tie breaker over us even if we beat them next week. Thus it just about kills our remaining hopes of hosting a first round game. The win leaves Green Bay in sole possession of third place in the HL.

IUPUI 67, Milwaukee 60. The doesn't quite eliminate Milwaukee (9-19, 4-11), but to reach the HL tournament they've got to win out while IUPUI loses its final three. Don't see that happening. Milwaukee didn't go down without a fight. The final seven point margin, coming on a pair of IUPUI free throws with 3 seconds left, was the largest lead of the game for either team. IUPUI's Jaylon Minnett led all scorers with 22 points. The win leaves IUPUI (15-13, 7-8) tied with Detroit for 7th. They visit Calihan next Thursday.

Titan Non-Conference Opponents
#25 Buffalo 80, Kent State 57. Buffalo took the lead with a 10-0 run to end the first half, and then steadily pulled away in the second. Milan's Nick Perkins had 27 points for Buffalo (24-3). Coach Ray had offered Perkins. Kent State is 19-8. Can you say CIT?

Ohio 92, Bowling Green 87 (OT). Bowling Green (19-8) falls a game behind Buffalo in the MAC West. Demajeo Wiggins had 20 points and 14 rebounds in the loss. Ohio U (12-14) snapped a six game losing streak.

Other Games
#21 Iowa 76, Indiana 70 (OT). Iowa (21-6) never led in the second half but was able to force the OT and win it there.

Davidson 75, Rhode Island 66.
Brown 88, Harvard 79. The Bears' next win will give them their highest season win total since 2008. Brown (16-9) has never won 20 games in a season.
Canisius 60, Monmouth 59. The Golden Griffs (13-14) never trailed, nor led by more than 5, in the second half. Monmouth missed on its final possession, with 5 seconds left. Canisius holds on to first in the MAAC, while Monmouth falls out of the race.

Saturday, February 23
A big day, with most of the top 25 in action, regular season titles being determined, and teams jockeying for seeding or just to get into the NCAA.

Horizon
Oakland 95, Detroit 75. Mercifully, the Titans have just 3 more losses this year--to UIC and IUPUI next week, and then in the first round of the HL tournament. I can't name a player on the team who is playing better now than at the end of December. Maybe Marquis Moore? Maybe Harrison Curry? Nor can I name more than 1 player that I think we can count on for next year, although there are a couple of maybes in the bunch. Over the last 5 games, the Titans have given up an average of over 88 points per game. Very disappointing.

Wright State 82, Youngstown State 54. By thrashing YSU, Wright State keeps alive the Titans' hopes of catching the Penguins in the standings. Detroit will hold the tie breaker over the Penguins, and so needs to pick up a half game next weekend. However, since YSU hosts Cleveland State in its final game, that means the Titans probably have to sweep UIC and IUPUI. That would require a level of play we've not seen in over a month.

Cleveland State 83, Northern Kentucky 77. WTF? Who'd a thought it? At NKU no less. It's not like NKU had nothing to play for--they entered the game needing a win to stay tied for first with Wright State. Jalaam Hill had 26 points and 12 rebounds for last place CSU.

Titan Non-Conference Opponents
Dayton 70, St. Louis 62. Dayton (18-9) keeps alive its flickering hopes in the A10 race.

Temple 84, Tulsa 73. Temple (20-7) can't afford to lose if they want to go to the Big Dance, and they won tonight behind 49 points from Shizz Alston and Quinton Rose.

Eastern Michigan 77, Western Michigan 76 (OT). Leading 74-66 with 1:18 left in overtime, Eastern proceeded to miss 7 of 10 free throws, including its final 4 attempts, but just managed to hang on. James Thompson had 17 points and 11 rebounds, and Kevin McAdoo scored 16 for the Eagles (13-14). Seth Dugan had 15 points and 10 rebounds for WMU (8-19).

Toledo 57, Northern Illinois 54. A dunk by one-time Titan signee Lacy James gave NIU an 43-32 lead with 12 minutes to play, but Toledo (21-6) dominated the game's final quarter.

Akron 70, Miami 58. Tyler Cheese had 28 points for Akron (15-12).

Boston U. 71, Loyola (Md) 65. In contrast to Eastern Michigan, BU (13-16) went 6-6 from the foul line in the final 34 seconds to clinch the win over Loyola (10-19).

Other Games
Central Michigan 64, Ball State 57.

#1 Duke 75, Syracuse 65. With Zion out, RJ Barrett had 30 to pace Duke (24-3).
#2 Gonzaga 102, Brigham Young 68.
#3 Virginia 64, Louisville 52. Virginia (24-2) trailed by 10 at the half but held Louisville (18-10) to 15 points in the second period.
#4 Kentucky 80, Auburn 53.
#13 Louisiana State 82, #5 Tennessee 80 (OT). LSU (22-5) beat a top 5 team for the second straight time, after beating Kentucky by 2 last week. Tennessee (24-3) led almost the entire game, but couldn't put LSU away and got lucky to get to OT when LSU missed a potential game winner in the final seconds. The Volunteers led again for most of the extra period, but LSU tied it with 5 seconds left. Tennessee quickly went the length of the court and missed a three, and then Grant Williams got called for a dumb foul on Ja'Vonte Smart with 1 second left. Smart nailed the free throws for the win.

#6 Nevada 74, Fresno State 68.
#8 North Carolina 77, #16 Florida State 59. I thought UNC (22-5) might have a letdown after their beatdown of Duke, but no.
#9 Houston 71, South Florida 59. Houston (26-1) keeps trucking. USF (18-9) probably loses its last chance to enter at-large discussions.
#11 Marquette 76, Providence 58.
#14 Texas Tech 91, #12 Kansas 62. It's not the winner, it's the margin that says "Whoa, whu happened?" Tech (22-5) never trailed, and led by 25 at halftime. Although Kansas (20-7) isn't formally out of it, this probably ends their streak of 14 consecutive Big 12 regular season titles.

#15 Purdue 75, Nebraska 72.
TCU 75, #19 Iowa State 72. Badly needed win for TCU (18-9), trying to solidify a spot in the field.
#20 Virginia Tech 67, Notre Dame 59. The Irish fall to 13-14.
#22 Wisconsin 69, Northwestern 64.
#23 Kansas State 85, Oklahoma State 46. The lead was 24 at halftime and just kept growing.
#24 Maryland 72, Ohio State 62. OSU (17-10) is 5-9 since the end of December.

St. John's 78, Seton Hall 70. Seton Hall (16-11) has to be glad tomorrow isn't selection Sunday.
Oklahoma 69, Texas 67.
UCLA 90, Oregon 83.
Oregon State 67, USC 62. Oregon State (17-9) is trying to get into the bubble discussion, but has a ways to go.
Duquesne 79, George Mason 78. The Dukes trailed by 19 in the early going. Duquesne (18-9) has had just 6 winning seasons since their glory days ended in the mid-1970s. The Dukes haven't won more than 21 games in a season since 1962. They have at least 5 games left this year.

Harvard 88, Yale 86. Old Eli's hopes we are dashing! Harvard (14-9) keeps the Ivy league race in play, with Yale (18-5) a game up on the Crimson and Princeton. Bryce Aiken led Harvard with 28 points.

Wofford 72, Furman 64. Wofford (24-4) beat a good Furman team (22-6) to clinch the Southern Conference title. If they fail to win the conference tournament, they're a good bet for an at-large bid, which would be the first ever for the SoCon. The Terriers are 24th in the NET rankings, with their 4 losses to #9 UNC and at #15 Kansas, #26 Mississippi State, and #38 Oklahoma. They've got 7 wins over top 100 teams, including a 20-point thrashing of South Carolina on the road.

Old Dominion 67, Western Kentucky 63. ODU (22-6) clinched at least a tie for the title in Conference USA.
James Madison 104, Hofstra 99 (OT). Hofstra (23-6) could have clinched the CAA regular season with a win.
New Mexico State 88, Texas-Rio Grande Valley 79. The Aggies (24-4) clinch the WAC regular season title with their 13th straight win.

Sunday, February 24

Horizon
IUPUI 79, Green Bay 68. In a game in which the contestants were never more than 2 possession apart for the first 35 minutes, a little 8-0 run by IUPUI 16-13 (8-8) late was all it took. Ultimately, the difference was IUPUI's backcourt combo of Grant Weatherford and Cameron Justice, who combined to make 9 of 12 three point attempts.

UIC 74, Milwaukee 59. UIC, Oakland, and Green Bay are tied for third heading into the final week of play. Two of the three will get home gets--unless IUPUI passes them up.

Titan Non-Conference Opponents
Xavier 66, #17 Villanova 54. After an 11 game winning streak, Villanova (20-8) has lost 3 in a row and 4 of 5. Meanwhile Xavier, which appeared headed for a losing season two weeks ago, has won 4 in a row and could even sneak into the NCAA picture if they can keep the streak going--their remaining regular season games are home and home against St. John's, and at Butler, all resume building opportunities. They've moved into a tie for 4th in the Big East, just a game in back of St. John's. Xavier (15-13) trailed the entire first half today and the first 8 minutes of the second. But starting at the 12:40 mark of the second half, the Musketeers held the Wildcats scoreless for over 9 minutes to take a 14 point lead, which they easily defended down the stretch.

Other Games
#10 Michigan State 77, #7 Michigan 70. I wouldn't object to a Final Four rematch, and it's possible, although I think both teams probably peaked a couple weeks ago. Good game today, with State (23-5) pulling away in the final minutes. UM is 24-4- overall. Cassius Winston had 27 points and 8 assists in today's win.

Iona 87, Canisius 80. In the crazy MAAC race--the conference no one wants to win--Iona (13-15) displaces the Golden Griffs (13-15) in the top spot. Iona and Rider--which is now tied with Canisius in second--will face off for what could be the regular season title next Friday.

Cincinnati 64, Connecticut 60.

Southern Illinois 63, Loyola 53.
Illinois State 67, Drake 60. The MVC is another conference no one seems to want to win. Today's losses leave Drake (21-8) and Loyola (17-12) tied for first with Missouri State (16-13), a game up on Northern Iowa.

NC State 94, Wake Forest 74.
Arizona State 69, California 59.
Bucknell 118, Lafayette 76. Lafayette (10-17) came in on a 5-game winning streak in which they'd allowed an average of 69 points per game. Bucknell (18-10) almost equalled that in the first half, and led by as many as 57 in the second half. The Bison made 21 of 36 three point attempts.

Monday, February 25

Some Games of Note
#15 Kansas 64, #16 Kansas State 49. Kansas (21-7) hangs in there in their quest for a 15th consecutive Big 12 title, knocking off in-state rival and league leader K State (also 21-7) with surprising ease.
#18 Florida State 68, Notre Dame 61. The Irish (13-15) appear headed for their first losing season in 20 years.

Iowa State 78, Oklahoma State 61.
Lipscomb 81, NJIT 77. Lipscomb (22-6) moves back into first in the Atlantic Sun by beating third place NJIT (20-10).

Alcorn State 61, Alabama A&M 55. Today is the 149th anniversary of the swearing in of U.S. Senator Hiram Revels. A minister and school teacher, Revels, a Republican from Mississippi, was the first African-American U.S. senator. After his single term in the Senate, he became the first president ever at Alcorn A&M, today known, of course, as Alcorn State.

Tuesday, February 26

Titan Non-Conference Opponents
Dayton 72, Massachusetts 48. Dayton (19-9) held UMass (10-18) to just 18 first half points.

Memphis 81, Temple 73. Temple (20-8) couldn't afford this loss. They can't afford any losses.

Providence 73, Butler 67 (OT). No NCAA for you! Either of you!

Central Michigan 77, Eastern Michigan 66. Central (20-8) stays right the heels of Toledo in the MAC West. Warren's Kevin McKay had 26 points and 10 rebounds for Central. Eastern falls to 13-15.

Northern Illinois 70, Western Michigan 65. In November I had no idea Western (8-20) would be so bad this year.

Toledo 80, Ball State 72. At 22-6, Toledo is probably good for an NIT bid.

Kent State 78, Ohio 73. The Golden Flash (20-8) get to 20 wins for the 17th time in 21 years. Inkster's Jaylin Walker led the way tonight with 23 points. Ohio is 12-15.

Miami (Oh) 82, Bowling Green 69. BGSU (19-9) loses is second in a row. The Falcons have a 9-9 season sandwiched around a 10 game winning streak, and appear to have peaked a bit too early.

#25 Buffalo 77, Akron 64. Tyler Cheese had 20, but Akron (15-13) had nothing to smile about.

Lesser Games
#20 Virginia Tech 77, #3 Duke 72. Come back, Zion! Come back!
#4 Kentucky 70, Arkansas 66. That was tough. Kentucky (24-4) had to come back from a 15 point second half deficit, and didn't wrap it up until there were 3 seconds left, when they successfully did the ole foul 'em before they can shoot the three. Arkansas (14-14) intentionally missed the second free throw, to no avail, and the final margin came on free throws after the Razorbacks' desperate foul with 1 second left.

#5 North Carolina 93, Syracuse 85. Coby White had 34 points for Carolina (23-5).

#11 LSU 66, Texas A&M 55.
Indiana 75, #19 Wisconsin 73 (2OT). What does one make of the Hoosiers? They won 12 of their first 14, beating Marquette, Louisville, and Butler, and losing only to Duke and by 1 point at Arkansas. They then lost 12 of 13, but the one win in there was at Michigan State. Tonight they squeezed by #19 Wisconsin (19-9), with Romeo Langford hitting the game winner at the buzzer in the second OT. Langford finished with 22. For Wisconsin, Dmitric Trice did his darnest--his 2 free throws with 5 seconds left forced the overtime; his late three pointer tied the game to force a second OT; and after being fouled on a three point attempt, he hit all three free throws to tie the score with 9 seconds left in the second overtime. Somewhat oddly, other than his last second heroics, Trice had a really bad night, shooting 2-10 from the floor and just 6-9 from the line.

Ohio State 90, #22 Iowa 70. OSU (18-10) really needed this one, and got it in fine fashion.

West Virginia 104, TCU 96 (OT).
VCU 71, St. Louis 65. With its 9th straight win, VCU (22-6) moves 1.5 up on Davidson and 2 on Dayton in the A10 race.
Utah State 70, San Diego State 54. The Utes (23-6) host Nevada on Saturday, and can get a long way toward an at-large bid with a win.

Horizon
Detroit 87, IUPUI 85. That got a bit hairy, but the Titans get a badly needed win, and Antoine Davis sets the freshman record for threes. Six Titans scored in double figures tonight, and Marquis Moore got his first ever double-double, with some clutch buckets and rebounds. Some nice clutch play by Lamar Hamrick, too. And Josh hit two huge threes late, on his way to 23 points. Good to see Willie hit the floor, too. Always feel good after a win. Only the size of the crowd (1786) was disappointing, but it looked like a good student turnout.

Oakland 86, UIC 72. Oakland (14-16, 10-8) clinched a quarterfinal home game for the HL tournament with the win. Brad Brechting continued his good play with 20 points and 8 rebounds, and 5 Grizz scored in double figures. Godwin Boahen led UIC with 20. The loss means UIC (15-15, 9-8) will start HL Tournament play on the road.

Green Bay 70, Wright State 67. Green Bay (16-14, 10-7) clinched a first round home game and scrambled the top of the Horizon again by taking out Wright State. The Phoenix led for the final 35 minutes, and helped their cause with a 12-12 night at the foul line. Sandy Cohen led with 24 points. Loudon Love had 21 for Wright State (18-12, 12-5).

Northern Kentucky 65, Milwaukee 55. Northern (22-8, 12-5) took advantage of Wright State's loss to move back into a tie for first with a win over Milwaukee. The Norse used a 12-0 run early in the second half to overcome a 7 point deficit. NKU played without star Drew McDonald, who was banged up but is expected to play Saturday.

Titan Non-Conference Opponents
Xavier 84, St. John's 73. Xavier's late drive into NCAA contention continues. The X-men (16-13) were impressive on the road tonight, taking the lead for good 1 minute into the game and fighting off a series of St. John's rallies. It was Xavier's 5th straight win.

Other Games
Davenport 68, Grand Valley 67. Davenport (25-3) is GLIAC regular season champion in just its second year after moving from NAIA to D-II. The Panthers are ranked 11th in the country in D-II after holding on against Grand Valley (16-11).

#9 Michigan 82, Nebraska 53. Michigan dominant.

#1 Gonzaga 86, Pacific 66.
#24 Wofford 80, Chattanooga 54. Wofford (25-4) wins its first ever game as a ranked team.
California 76, #25 Washington 73. Cal entered with 16 straight losses since beating San Jose State before Christmas. Washington was 15-1 in the same time frame. I guess that's why they play the games.

UCLA 93, USC 88 (OT).
Arizona 74, Oregon State 72. Arizona (17-12) got a bizarre put back at the buzzer to win.
Western Kentucky 73, UAB 67. A couple of old rivals from the Sunbelt Conference's glory days, now in CUSA. Both teams end the night at 17-12.
