Wednesday, Dec.. 5

Horizon

Toledo 101, Detroit 57. Starting with 1:22 left in the Kent State game, the Titans have been outscored 284 to 177. The Titans were quite obviously gassed, mentally and physically, tonight. Ten days to take finals and rejuvenate before the final non-con games. Nice to see Harrison Curry. Pisser it took the NCAA so long.

Cleveland State 82, Bowling Green 64. Tyree Appleby exploded for 37 points as CSU (3-7) got an easy win. Demajeo Wiggins had 16 points and 11 rebounds for Bowling Green (4-5).

UIC 94, Illinois State 75. UIC (4-5) picked up a good win tonight, beating one of the MVC favorites. For once UIC didn't blow a big lead. Jordan Blount led the Flames with 27 points, Godwin Boahen added 22, and Tarkus Ferguson had a triple-double with 14 points, 12 rebounds, and 11 assists. Milik Yarbrough had 30 for Illinois State (6-4).

Miami (Oh) 65, Wright State 62. A bad home loss for the Raiders (4-5) and the Horizon. Billy Wampler tied it with a 3 with six seconds left, but Miami (5-4) answered with a 3 by Isaiah Coleman at the buzzer.

Titan Non-Conference Opponents
Xavier 80, Ohio U. 61. Detroit's final two non-conference opponents squared off against each other. This game was actually pretty close most of the way, but Xavier finished with a 17-1 run in the final six minutes. Paul Scruggs had 21 for Xavier (6-3), while Jason Carter led Ohio (5-3) with 17.

Butler 70, Brown 55. Paul Jorgenson led Butler ((6-2) with 21 points, in a game that was never close.

#21 Villanova 69, Temple 59. In Big 5 action, Villanova pulled away in the final 6 minutes of what had been a close, see-saw battle. Nate Pierre Louis led Temple (7-2) with 19 points.

Fort Wayne 68, Akron 65. Akron (6-3) has outscored its opponents by an average of 44-31 in the second half this year. They outscored Fort Wayne 40-28 in the second half tonight, but the deficit was too big. Fort Wayne (6-5) survived when Dan Utomi missed a three at the final buzzer.

Drexel 95, Loyola (Md.) 86. Loyola falls to 3-6 despite 31 points from Andrew Kostenka. Kostenka, who had 23 against UD, has 90 points in his last 3 games.

Other Games
#1 Gonzaga 81, Washington 79. Trailing by 10 at halftime, Washington (6-3) opened the second half with a 15-2 run for the lead. Gonzaga (9-0) rebounded to lead by 11 with five minutes to play, but another Huskie charge finally tied the game with 10 seconds remaining on free throws by Jaylen Nowell.. Gonzaga won it on a 14 foot jumper by Rui Hachimura with 1 second left. Hachimura and Nowell each finished with 26 points.

#3 Duke 84, Hartford 54.
#13 Texas Tech 65, Arkansas Pine Bluff 47. Texas Tech is 8-0.
#14 North Carolina 97, UNC-Wilmington 69.
#15 Virginia Tech 89, VMI 68.
#17 Buffalo 89, Le Moyne 55. Buffalo is 8-0.
#19 Ohio State 77, Illinois 67.
Minnesota 85, #24 Nebraska 78.

St Joe's 92, Princeton 82. I was going to go to this game but the wife and I went dancing instead.
Southern Illinois 61, Saint Louis 56.
Ball State 75, Loyola 69.

Mid Major Win of the Day
VCU 54, Texas 53. Shaka Smart lost to his old team when the Longhorns (5-3) missed two shots for the win in the final seconds. Marcos Santos-Silva had 16 rebounds for VCU (7-2).

Thursday, December 6

Horizon
Oakland 87, Fairfield 86. Out in Connecticut, OU opened up an 18 point lead on a 33-6 run that straddled the half, then held on as Fairfield mounted a late comeback that pulled them to within a point with 55 seconds left. But neither team scored again. Credit Xavier Hill-Maas with 21 points for OU (4-5), with Kamari Newman adding 19. Fairfield is 2-7.

Drake 75, Milwaukee 61. Darius Roy had 19 but Milwaukee dropped to 2-7. Drake is off to a 6-1 start.

IUPUI 95, Indiana-Kokomo 64. IUPUI (6-3) pads the W-L record behind 18 points from Camron Justice.

Other Games of Interest
#18 Iowa 98, Iowa State 84. Iowa (7-2) wins the in-state battle behind 26 points and 11 rebounds from Tyler Cook. Iowa State is also 7-2.
Purdue 62, #23 Maryland 60. Carsen Edwards led Purdue (6-3) with 20 points.

Chicago State 84, Trinity 82. Hey, Chicago State (3-8) has won 3 in a row for the first time since March of 2013, though 2 were over non-D1 opponents, including this one.

Arizona 80, Utah Valley State 69. This one looked like the Mid-Major Win of the Day, but Arizona (7-2) outscored the Wolverines (yes, Utah Valley State's teams are called "Wolverines") in a late 25-8 run.

Friday, December 7.

Not much action on a Friday

A Couple Games of Note
#6 Nevada 72, #20 Arizona State 66. Nevada (9-0) has beaten some solid opponents this year--USC, BYU, Loyola, Massachusetts--but this was it's first real major test, against a ranked opponent. The Wolfpack impressed, rallying from a 12 point halftime deficit to a 10 point lead, then holding off a rally that brought the Sun Devils (7-1) to within a point with two minutes left. Arizona State's loss left just 10 undefeated teams on the scene.

Massachusetts 79, Providence 78. Luwane Pipkins had 26 points for the Minutemen (6-4), including the game-winner with 10 seconds left.
George Mason 66, James Madison 53. Anti-Federalists over the Federalists.
St. Mary's 85, New Mexico 60.
TCU 96, USC 61. Impressive performance by TCU (7-1) while visiting the 5-4 Trojans.

Saturday, December 8

Horizon
Another terrible, horrible, no-good, really bad night for the Horizon. 3 HL teams lost to MAC teams that Detroit has already played, if you want to try to use that as some kind of likely barometer for the Titans' conference chances.

Northeastern 92, Oakland 83. This looked a bit like a recent Titan box score. Northeastern shot 60% and outrebounded OU 37-22. The Huskies (5-5) led by 16 at halftime and held off a couple rallied that brought OU to within a point, the pulled away again late. Xavier Hill-Maas had 22 and Jaevin Cumberland 21 for Oakland (4-6).

Western Michigan 88, Youngstown State 77. Michael Flowers had 25 for Western (5-4). Garrett Covington had 15 for YSU (3-8).

Kent State, 83, Wright State 76. Jaylin Walker had 25 for Kent State (8-1). Horizon favorite Wright State (4-6) is just not playing well. Cole Gentry led the Raiders with 19.

Bowling Green 97, Green Bay 68. WTF? Green Bay, after playing Oregon tough and beating previously unbeaten Belmont, gets bowled over by Bowling Green. Detroiter Justin Turner had 25 points, and Demajeo Wiggins had 12 points and 19 rebounds for the Falcons (5-5). Wiggins has still had a double-double in every game except against Detroit. The Falcons hit 53% from the floor, 41% of their threes, and smoked Green Bay 51-29 on the boards. Sandy Cohen led Green Bay (5-4) with 16 points.

Eastern Kentucky 76, Northern Kentucky 74. Nick Mayo hit a pair of free throws to tie it with 46 seconds left, and a game winning jumper to win it with 2 seconds left. Mayo finished with 27 points and 11 rebounds for EKU (6-4). Drew McDonald had 23 for NKU (8-3).

Colorado 84, UIC 72. UIC tried to rally on the road, but McKinley Wright scored 10 straight points for Colorado and the Bison held off the Flames. Marcus Ottey had 22 for UIC (4-6), which is 0-5 on the road. Colorado is 7-1.


Titan Non-Conference Opponents
#8 Auburn 82, Dayton 72. This was a blow-out, with Auburn (8-1) leading 51-32 at halftime. Dayton shot 48% but 23 turnovers spelled doom for the Flyers (5-4).

Eastern Michigan 105, Central State 53. EMU (5-5) rolls a D-II team.

Toledo 75, Marshall 74 (OT). Toledo ran up a 20-4 lead before the second TV timeout, and led by 18 at the half. Marshall (5-4) tied it with a 25-5 run midway through the second half, and opened a 5 point lead with a minute left. Jaelan Sanford hit a bucket with 45 seconds left and after a Marshall miss, hit a game-tying three with 5 seconds to go in regulation. The teams had 6 lead changes in the OT, with Toledo (9-1) winning it on a Marreon Jackson jumper with 3 seconds left.

Cincinnati 62, Xavier 47. The Titans play the X-Men (6-4) in 2 weeks.

Butler 95, Northern Illinois 68. Butler (7-2) shot 61% overall, and 17 of 32 from three.

Ohio U. 78, Radford 69. The Titans' next opponent beat a pretty good Radford team behind 19 points from Jason Carter. Both teams are 6-3.

Loyola (Md) 83, Binghamton 64. All 5 Loyola starters scored in double figures, and the Greyhounds boosted their record to 4-6.

Some Other Games That Caught My Eye
#5 Michigan 89, South Carolina 78. South Carolina (4-5) was never closer than 9 in the final 16 minutes. Jordan Poole led the Wolverines (10-0) with 26.

#10 Michigan State 63, Florida 59. Kyle Ahrens scored Michigan State's final 7 points as MSU held off a series of Florida rallies in Gainesville. Those were Ahrens only points of the game. In the last two weeks, the Spartans have gone 5-1 against UCLA, Texas, Louisville, Rutgers, Iowa, and Florida, with the only loss in OT at Louisville. That should have them ready for more conference play (yes, I know two of those were B10 opponents).

Central Michigan 95, Southern Utah 86. Central is 8-2.

Seton Hall 84, #9 Kentucky 83 (OT). Junior Myles Powell had 28 points, including a game-winning three with 1 second left, for Seton Hall (6-3). Could be a big win for the Pirates come march. PJ Washington had 29 points and 13 rebounds for Kentucky (7-2). PJ looks like a "two and through" player.

#2 Kansas 63, New Mexico State 60. Once again Kansas rallied to win. New Mexico State is 7-2, Kansas 8-0.
#3 Duke 91, Yale 58. Yale (4-3) is playing a pretty tough non-con schedule, with Cal, Memphis, Miami, and now Duke (9-1).
#11 Florida State 79, Connecticut 71.

Marquette 74, #12 Wisconsin 69 (OT). A tense game in which the biggest lead for either team was 6 points. Markus Howard had 27 for Marquette (8-2). Ethan Happ had 34 points and 11 rebounds for Wisconsin (8-2).

Tulsa 47, #16 Kansas State 46. Not a halftime score. Another tight one, in which the biggest lead for either team over the last 30 minutes was 6 points. The last scoring of the game was a jumper by Tulsa's Martin Igbanu with almost 2 minutes left. K State (6-2) missed two desperate shots in the final 5 seconds. Tulsa (7-3) has won 13 straight at home.

#17 Buffalo 80, St. Bonaventure 62. Buffalo (9-0) keeps rolling--the Bulls led by 22 points at halftime, at St. Bonaventure.
#21 Villanova 70, St. Joe's 58.
#22 Mississippi State 82, Clemson 71. Lamar Peters had 28 for Ole Mississippi State (8-1).
#23 Maryland 55, Loyola 41. Maryland pulled away in the second half. The Magic of last year's Final Four run has worn off quickly--Loyola is 5-5.

#24 Nebraska 94, Creighton 75.
#25 Furman 74, South Carolina Upstate 60. Furman (10-0) had to rally from a halftime deficit against 2-8 Upstate.

UCLA 65, Notre Dame 62. The Bruins (7-2) blew a 14 point lead, but won it on a Kris Wilkes buzzer-beater in Los Angeles. What's wrong with college basketball scheduling? This was the first true road game for either team.

Indiana 68, Louisville 67. The Hoosiers (8-2) have won 3 straight, by a total of 5 points.
Syracuse 72, Georgetown 71. Still seems that this should be a Big East game. Tyus Battle had 26 points, including the game-winner with 2 seconds left.
Houston 63. Oklahoma 53. Houston (8-0) stays unbeaten.
Northwestern 75, DePaul 68. DePaul (5-2) blew a 15 point lead.
Rhode Island 79, Holy Cross 63.
BYU 74, Utah 59. This is a big in-state rivalry, and BYU (7-3) was on a mission.

Mid Major Win of the Day
Western Kentucky 78, Arkansas 77.

The Irish pretty much never travel in non-con anymore beyond an invited tournament, the ACC-B1G challenge (this year it was a home game), the Crossroads Classic State obligation, and maybe 1 road game against a premier opponent. That’s the kind of thing you can do when you endow the head coaching position, some of the assistant positions, and the scholarships for the team. The program has the cash and the home games are well attended so there really is no reason to travel. The players don’t miss many classes and the local fans can see the games. There’s also no reason to travel and pick up “big wins” because when you’re in the ACC you’ll play good teams in conference play.

College basketball really is a world of the haves and have nots. It is crazy to me that the NCAA doesn’t regulate the number of road days for MBB players. They regulate nearly everything else (minutes at practice, when you can practice, etc.), but a coach like Davis might have his players travel all November/December and miss a ton of classes.

Sunday, December 9
After getting its non-conference mark to almost .500 and posting some pretty respectable conference RPI and NCAA Net ratings, the Horizon went 4-21 against D1 opponents this week.

North Dakota 83, Milwaukee 72. North Dakota (5-5) shot 54% to topple Milwaukee (2-8). Darius Roy led the Panthers with 20 points.

Cleveland State 77, Notre Dame College 56. At least the Horizon can beat non-D1 teams. Stefan Kenic had 18 points and Tyree Appleby 12 points and 10 assists for CSU (4-7).

Other Games
#7 Tennessee 76, #1 Gonzaga 73. Admiral Schofield (name, not rank) scored 25 points in the second half as Tennessee (7-1) upended Gonzaga (9-1) in Phoenix. Schofield scored Tennessee's last 11 points, including what turned out to be the game winner with 24 seconds left.

#4 Virginia 57, Virginia Commonwealth 49. That's five opponents Virginia (9-0) has held under 50 points.
#6 Nevada 74, Grand Canyon 66. With under 3 minutes left and a 1 point lead, Nevada (10-0) scored 9 straight to close it out.
#15 Virginia Tech 81, South Carolina State 44.

Texas 72, Purdue 68. Not Tennessee/Gonzaga, but a good game. Carsen Edwards had 40 points for Purdue (6-4), but needed at least 4 more.
Alabama 76, Arizona 73.
St. Louis 65, Oregon State 61. Jevon Bess had 24 for the Billikens (7-2).
St. John's 89, Princeton 74. Still unranked, St. John's is now 9-0.
Columbia 74, Iona 71. Iona is working on a string of 9 consecutive 20-win seasons and three straight NCAA bids, but they're just 2-6 so far this year.

Mid Major Win of the Day
Montana State 95, Washington State 90. Montana State, just 2-6 entering the game, knocked off Washington State (5-3), which had been 5-0 at home. Harald Frey, a junior guard from Norway (Norway?!) sparked the upset with 30 points and 10 assists, both career highs. He also had 6 rebounds.

Gonzaga's loss leaves 9 unbeaten teams. Five--La Salle, Monmouth, Coppin State, Mt. St. Mary's, and Alabama A&M---are winless, although another 11 have yet to beat a D1 opponent.

It's crazy to me that Bennett and Virginia can look like this year-in and year-out. What a great regular season team. It's almost sad knowing that the odds are better they end the season losing to Incarnate Word than making the Final 4.

Tuesday, December 11
Things still quiet, as most schools avoid heavy scheduling around finals.

Horizon
Green Bay 112, Wisconsin Stout 46. Downing a little Stout helped Green Bay forget about its embarrassing 29 point loss to Bowling Green on Saturday. Seven Phoenix scored in double figures, led by Sandy Cohen with 17.

Titan Non-Conference Opponents
Maryland 94, Loyola (Md) 71. What did you expect, a Loyola win? Andrew Kostecka had 18 points in the Greyhounds' cause.

Other Games
Penn 78, #17 Villanova 75. Needless to say, this is also the mid-major win of the day. Penn is 9-2.

#23 Furman 77, Charleston Southern 69. The Paladins (11-0) have the nation's best record. Furman's Jeff Lyons, who scored 54 points in a game earlier this year, had 0 tonight. I wonder if any other player has ever had both 50 point and 0 point games in a season.

South Dakota State 139, Savannah State 72. The Jackrabbits (9-3) had the most points of any team in a game since Butler dropped 144 on the Citadel in November, 2015.

NJIT 53, Fordham 50. Fordham has sandwiched a win over Rutgers between losses to Maine and NJIT in its last three games. Both schools are off to good starts against weak schedules, with Fordham at 7-3 and NJIT at 9-2.

Wednesday, December 12

Horizon
IUPUI 116, Indiana-Northwest 79. IUPUI (7-4) had fun, and Jaylen Minnett had the most fun, with 28 points.

Titan Non-Conference Opponents
Temple 65, Massachusetts 63. Temple (8-2) used a 16-2 run early in the second half to wipe out a 13 point deficit, then held off UMass (6-5) down the stretch. Shiz Alston led the Owls with 31 points.

Other Games
#11 Texas Tech 79, Northwestern (La.) State 44. Chris Beard is a helluva coach, and Tech is 9-0.
#24 Houston 82, LSU 76. Houston trailed by 10 at halftime, and then gave up 5 quick points to LSU to start the second half But a long, slow comeback kept the Cougars unbeaten.

Louisville 72, Lipscomb 68. Lipscomb (7-3) almost pulled it off, rallying from 12 down in the second half to tie, and closing to within 2 points in the final minute.
DePaul 104, Chicago State 70.
Murray State 80, Southern Illinois 52. Ja Morant scored 23 points, dished off 13 assists, and pulled down five rebounds as Murray State (6-1) rolled the Salukis (7-4).

Thursday, December 13

Horizon
Milwaukee 69, UMKC 66. In Kansas City, Milwaukee scored the game's final 12 points to eek out a victory. The Panthers, who had trailed the Kangaroos (3-8) for the entire half, began the rally with 2:30 left to play. Vance Johnson started things off with an old-fashioned three point play and an assist on the Panthers' next possession, then Darius Roy hit a couple free throws and a what proved to be a game winning layup. Amir Allen wrapped up the comeback with a thunderous dunk in the final seconds. DeAndre Abram made 5 of 6 threes to finish with 20 points and keep the Panthers in the game for the final rally. This is the type of win that can sometimes turn a season around--we'll see if that happens for the Panthers (3-8).

Wright State 91,Northwestern Ohio 52. Reeling from 5 losses in 6 games, the Horizon League preseason favorites got a chance to regroup against NAIA member Northwestern Ohio. But the Raiders (5-6) still haven't beaten a D1 team in a month, and it took 'em a while to get going in this one. They didn't take the lead until the final 3 minutes of the first half, but a 28-4 run that straddled the half blew it open. Freshman Skyelar Potter had 17 points and 7 rebounds.

Other Games
#16 Wisconsin 101, Savannah State 60. Savannah State, still shell-shocked after surrendering 90 first half points to South Dakota State on Tuesday, was down double digits before the first TV time out. But in the end, they gave up "just" 69 points in the first half tonight. Savannah (3-9) is giving up an average of 100 points per game. Wisconsin is 9-2.

Campbell 100, Central Pennsylvania 53. Campbell's Chris Clemons, the only player in the country averaging more points per game than our Antoine Davis, had 28 tonight.

Friday, December 14
Only 4 all D1 matchups tonight, but two involved Horizon teams.

Horizon
DePaul 90, UIC 70. UIC fell behind 13-2 in the opening 4 minutes, closed the gap to 4, and then watched DePaul go on a 23-4 run. UIC never made a run after that. Max Strus had 34 points for DePaul (7-2). Tarkus Ferguson had 20 for UIC (4-7).

Creighton 86, Green Bay 65. The Bluejays (7-3) pulled away with a 14-2 run ending with 7 minutes to go the second half, giving them a 16 point lead. Sandy Cohen had 20 points and 10 rebounds for the Phoenix (6-5).

Eight of the 10 Horizon teams have losing records against D1 competition, the exceptions being Northern Kentucky (6-3) and IUPUI (5-3).

Also
George Washington 70, Howard 64. Did you know that Howard is named for Major General O.O. Howard, a Union commander in the Civil War? Howard was the commander of the Union 11th Corps, which was routed at Chancellorsville and then again 6 weeks later at Gettysburg, earning him the nickname "Uh-Oh" Howard. But Howard was also a Medal of Honor winner and, after Gettysburg, went on to a long and distinguished career. You'd think Howard's teams would be called the "Generals."

Things pick up again after a slow week during which most schools took time off for finals.

Horizon
Ohio 63, Detroit 61. I'll let others comment on the game. The Titans close out MAC play at 2-5, and begin Horizon play in two weeks.

IUPUI 82, Western Illinois 68. IUPUI (8-3) pulled away in the second half. Camron Justice had 20 and Elijah Goss had 13 points and 10 rebounds.

Youngstown State 58, Binghamton 48. A most un-Youngstown State-like score. Darrien Quisenberry led the Penguins (4-8) with 14 points.

Titan Non-Conference Opponents
#5 Michigan 70, Western Michigan 62. Western probably played its best game of the year so far, but to no avail. UM scored the last 10 points of the first half to take a two point lead into the locker room, then outscored the Broncos 14-4 to start the second half. WMU refused to fold, however, and several times cut the Wolverine margin to 5. But they couldn't get past that hump. Mike Flowers had 31 for WMU (5-5). Charlie Mathews had 25 points and 10 boards for UM (11-0).

#25 Indiana 71, Butler 68. Indiana has won its last 4 games by a total of 8 points, this one on a Rob Phinnisee trey at the buzzer. Juwan Morgan led the Hoosiers (9-2) with 35 points. Sean McDermott had 22 for Butler (7-3).

Xavier 95, Eastern Kentucky 77. Xavier (7-4) will be the Titans' final non-conference opponent this Friday. Six players scored in double figures tonight for the Muskateers.

Temple 77, Davidson 75 (OT). Temple (8-2) scored the final 8 points in overtime to win. With 4 seconds left, Quinton Rose stole an in-bounds pass and dunked the ball for win. Shizz Alston led the Owls with 24 points and 11 assists. Davidson is also 8-2.

Toledo 84, MIddle Tennessee State 62. Toledo (10-1) rolled to its 8th straight win. Middle Tennessee, which has averaged 26 wins a season over the last 6 years, drops to 3-8.

Marshall 75, Akron 74. Akron (6-4) missed 4 shots for the win in the final minute.

Louisville 83, Kent State 70. Louisville (8-3) snapped Kent State's 6 game win streak. Jaylin Walker had 28 for Kent (8-2).


Other Games
#1 Kansas 74, #17 Villanova 71. Dedric Lawson and Lagerald Vick combined for 57 of Kansas's 74 points, plus 19 rebounds, and the Jayhawks did what the Jayhawks (9-0) always do, pulled it out late. Phil Booth had 29 for Villanova (8-4).

#3 Tennessee 102, Memphis 92. Admiral Schofield had 29 points and 11 rebounds. Memphis made one run to cut the lead to 7 early in the second half, but they trailed by double digits for the substantial majority of the game.

#12 North Carolina 103, #4 Gonzaga 90. North Carolina (8-2) made 13 of 25 threes and outscored the Gonzaga 27-0 on second chance points. Cameron Johnson led the charge with 25 points, including 6-8 from three, and Luke Maye added 20 points and 16 rebounds. It was the second loss in a row for Gonzaga (9-2).

#7 Nevada 72, South Dakota State 68. The Jackrabbits, entering the game at 9-3 and fresh off a 139 point effort in their last game, jumped out to a 7 point halftime lead but couldn't hold it. Nevada (11-0) held the nation's #3 scorer entering the game, Mike Daum, to just 5 points.

#8 Auburn 75, UAB 71 (OT). Jared Harper scored 23 of Auburn's final 30 points, finishing with 31. He overshadowed some heroics by Jeremiah Bell (a second-team all-Horizon player last year with Milwaukee), who hit a pair of threes in the final 40 seconds to force the OT.

#11 Texas Tech 82, Abilene Christian 48. Tech is 10-0.
#13 Virginia Tech 73, Washington 61.
#14 Buffalo 73, Southern Illinois 65. How high can Buffalo (10-0) go? Ypsilanti product Nick Perkins led them with 20 and 11.

#15 Ohio State 73, Bucknell 71. Bucknell pushed a 1 point halftime to lead to 8, fell behind by 11, and rallied only to fall short when Bruce Moore's three missed at the buzzer.

#18 Mississippi State 70, Cincinnati 59. A nice win for Mississippi State (9-1) over Cincy (9-2).
#19 Kentucky 88, Utah 61.
#20 Arizona State 76, Georgia 74. The Sun Devils (8-1) rallied from 18 down.
#22 Iowa 77, Northern Iowa 54.
#23 Furman 93, UNC-Wilmington 50.

Old Dominion 68, #25 Syracuse 62. ODU's BJ Stith entered averaging exactly 18 points per game. After a scoreless first half, he scored 18 in the second and ODU (8-3) came from 13 down to win its 6th straight.

#25 Kansas State 71, Georgia State 59.

Notre Dame 88, Purdue 80. The Irish (7-3) could never quite shake the Boilermakers, but led virtually the whole game. Purdue is probably the best 6-5 team in the country.

North Carolina State 89, Penn State 78. NC State is 9-1 after the road win.
UNLV 92, BYU 90 (OT).
Cal 67, Cal-Poly 66. We so could have won that game.

Charleston 83, VCU 79. Grant Riller had 30 points and Jerrell Brantley 26 points and 17 rebounds as Charleston (9-2) upset VCU (7-4) on the road.

Mount Saint Mary's 74, Wilson 59. The Mountaineers win over D3 Wilson leaves La Salle, Monmouth, Coppin State, and Alabama A&M as the only winless teams in D1.

Mid-Major Win of the Day
Belmont 74, UCLA 72. Kevin McLain hit the game winner with 2 seconds left as the Bruins (8-1) upset the Bruins (7-3) in Pauley Pavillion. McLain finished with 20 points.

Sunday, December 16
The HL continued to struggle, mainly because its teams keep losing very winnable games. Cleveland State had Illinois State on the ropes tonight, and Oakland was positioned to beat Hartford, but neither could deliver in the final moments.

Horizon
#9 Michigan State 104, Green Bay 83. One of those games that looks lopsided in the final score, but was really more lopsided than that. State led by 29 at halftime, after dropping 64 points on the Phoenix. Actually, Green Bay was competitive for a while. They led 24-20 with 13 minutes left in the first half, but then the Spartans (9-2) went on a 27-4 run. Green Bay responded with 7 straight to cut the Spartan lead back to 12, but a 17-0 MSU run to close the first half made it absolutely clear who was boss. Green Bay got to within 19 points for a few seconds late in the second half, while the Spartans were playing their walk-ons and, if I'm not mistaken, a couple fans drawn randomly from the stands. Nick Ward led all scorers with 28, while Sandy Cohen led Green Bay (6-6) with 22.

Hartford 87, Oakland 82. OU (4-7) had an early 8 point lead, but Hartford (5-7) came back to lead by 1 at the break and never trailed in the second half. Jaevin Cumberland led Oakland with 26 points. High scoring Xavier Hill-Maas was held to just 7.

Northern Kentucky 72, Miami (Oh) 66. NKU (9-3) went 6-6 from the stripe in the final minute to close it out. Drew McDonald hit 4 of those free throws, and led all scorers with 21 points and 10 rebounds.

Illinois State 88, Cleveland State 77 (OT). Illinois State went on a 10-0 run starting with just over 4 minutes left to play, erasing a 7 point deficit. CSU played well though, and retook the lead on a couple of Tyree Appleby free throws with 3 seconds left. But the Vikings were caught with their pants down on the in-bounds, and Illinois State got a full court pass to a wide open Phil Fayne. Kasheem Thomas fouled him hard to prevent the basket, but Fayne, just a 68% free throw shooter, knocked 'em down with 1 second left to force the OT, which was all Illinois State. Freshman Rashad Williams had a big night for CSU (4-8), with 25 points. Fayne led ISU (7-5) with 30.

Milwaukee 87, Wisconsin Lutheran 64. DeAndre Abram led the rout of outmanned Lutheran with 25 points and 11 rebounds. The Panthers are (4-8).

Titan Non-Conference Opponents
Tulsa 72, Dayton 67. Curran Scott made 4 free throws in the final 11 seconds as Tulsa (9-3) held off a late Dayton rally. Josh Cunningham led Dayton (5-5) with 15.

Bowling Green 82, Findlay 57. BGSU (6-5) picked up the non-D1 win behind Justin Turner's 22 points.

Other Games
#24 Houston 68, St. Louis 64. Houston doesn't have Antoine Davis, but they've got Corey Davis, who had 17 points, including a game winning three pointer in the final 30 seconds. The Cougars are 10-0, their best start since the 1968 Final Four edition led by Elvin Hayes.

St. John's 73, Wagner 58. St. John's (10-0) is one of 9 remaining unbeaten teams, and the only one not ranked.
Rhode Island 83, West Virginia 70. Fatts Russell led Rhody (5-3) with 18 points. You don't see many nicknames like "Fatts" anymore.
Duquesne 72, Maine 46. The Dukes are 8-2.

Monday, December 17

Horizon
UIC 63, Incarnate Word 57. UIC (5-7) built a 15 point halftime lead and kept the Cardinals at bay after the break without ever really breaking it open. Michael Diggins led the Flames with 15 points.

Other Games
#10 Florida State 85, SE Missouri State 68.
Vanderbilt 81, #20 Arizona State 65. Vanderbilt is 7-2 after a surprisingly easy win. Like most of you, I'm hope that Tennessee's Admiral Schofield will transfer across the state to play for the Commodores. Native Detroit son and onetime Cleveland Stater Rob Edwards led Arizona with 14.

Ball State 77, Valparaiso 61. It's petty, but I like seeing Valpo (6-5) lose these days.
Wake Forest 67, Davidson 63.

Mid-Major Win of the Day
Gardner-Webb 79, Georgia Tech 69. Gardner-Webb (8-5) won its 6th in a row.

Another bad night for the Horizon.

Horizon League
Georgia 81, Oakland 69. Georgia led coast to coast. OU closed to within 2 with just under 5 minutes remaining, but the Bulldogs (6-4) closed it out on a 15-5 run. Xavier Hill-Maas led Oakland (4-8) with 21 points and 9 rebounds. Westland's Mike Edwards, a one-time Titan recruiting target who chose to follow Yante Maten down to Georgia, did not play for the Bulldogs. After being a rotation player as a freshman and soph, he has pretty much disappeared over the last year and a half. Woulda been a real good player in the Horizon, I suspect.

#15 Ohio State 75, Youngstown State 56. Believe it or not, YSU led this one at halftime. In fact, the Penguins got out to a 14-2 lead to open the game, and it would have been but for the fact that the Guins shot just 33% in the half. Ohio State (10-1), which shot just 24% in the first half, rallied in the second behind Kaleb Wesson, who scored 26 points in the half, 31 for the game. Darrien Quisenberry led YSU (4-9) with 17. The Penguins next game will be their Horizon opener against Detroit.

Fort Wayne 87, IUPUI 77. IUPUI has been one of the better teams in the Horizon non-conference season, perhaps the only team to exceed expectations except for our Titans, and in our case, the bar was darn low. So this loss to a very so-so Fort Wayne team was disappointing and a bit embarrassing. Camron Justice had 25 and Grant Weatherford 20 for IUPUI (8-4). Fort Wayne (7-7) won behind 55% shooting from the floor and 30 points and 10 rebounds from my favorite non-Titan mid-major player, senior Jon Konchar. Konchar averages 18.5 points, 9.3 rebounds, and 4.6 assists per game, while shooting 57% overall and 36% from three. A complete player who virtually never has a bad night.

Wright State 78, Morehead State 67. The Raiders salvaged a little respect for the conference, evening their record at 6-6 with a home win over Morehead State (3-8). Loudon Love had 19 points and 10 rebounds.

Titan Non-Conference Opponents
Missouri 71, Xavier 56. Missouri drubbed the Musketeers in Colombia, Mo. That should help make sure the X-Men (7-5) are fired up for the Titans on Friday night. Quentin Goodin had 21 points but the rest of the Musketeers shot 33% from the field.

Butler 76, Presbyterian 67. Presbyterian led at the half and didn't lose touch with Butler (8-3) until the final minutes. Erstwhile Titan Cory Hightower has been starting for the Blue Hose (6-6), and entered the game averaging 9.2 ppg and 6.1 rpg. Tonight he had 8 and 4 in the defeat.

Akron 82, Tennessee State 60. Easy win for Akron (7-4), thanks to making 13 of 29 three point shots.

Other Games
#1 Kansas 89, South Dakota 53. No late heroics necessary in this one.

#2 Duke 101, Princeton 50. When was the last time Princeton gave up 100 points in a regulation game? And when was the last time Princeton lost by more than 50 points? Answers: December 31, 1968, and never. Worst defeat in Princeton history. And rather amazingly, Princeton actually scored the game's first 8 points and led for the first 14 minutes.

#8 Gonzaga 89, UT-Arlington 55.
#20 Marquette 92, North Dakota 66.
#23 Iowa 78, Western Carolina 60.

The Citadel 82, Campbell 76. Why do you care? Because Campbell's Chris Clemons is the only player in the country averaging more points than Antoine Davis. He had 21 tonight in the loss to The Citadel (9-2).

Vermont 83, St. Bonaventure 76 (2 OT). Did you realize that Vermont is working on a string of 10 straight 20 wins seasons (averaging 23.8 wins per year), and 15 in 17 years? The Catamounts are 9-3 after a double overtime win over the Bonnies (4-7). Anthony Lamb had 42 for Vermont.

Murray State 66, Evansville 64. Trailing by 7, Murray State (8-1) held Evansville (5-6) without a field goal for the final four minutes and won on a Ja Morant layup at the buzzer.

Oklahoma 83, Creighton 70.
North Texas 74, New Mexico 65. North Texas is 11-1.

Mid-Major Win of the Day
#14 Buffalo 71, Syracuse 59. Despite road wins at West Virginia, St. Bonaventure, and Southern Illinois, and a neutral court win over a 10-1 San Francisco team, you know people still doubt Buffalo. Not surprisingly, Syracuse, playing in the Carrier Dome, was favored over the 14th ranked Buffs. At least some doubts were laid to rest tonight as the Bulls (11-0) dismantled the Orange (7-4) in the second half. CJ Massinburg led the way with 25 points, and Ypsilanti's Nick Perkins had 10 points and 12 rebounds.

Also, Stephen F. Austin 59, Baylor 58. Shannon Bogues hit a three to bring SFA (6-4) to within a point with 38 seconds left, and after a Baylor miss drove the length of the court for the game winner just before the final buzzer. Bogues finished with 21 points.

Wednesday, December 19
Know what I love about college basketball? Look down below for the results of the Loyola (Calif.)/Boise State game. Every single night there are at least 2 or three of those games around the country, games won on last second shots or blocks or steals. It's just a great sport.

Horizon
Cleveland State 82, Niagara 60. Five Vikings scored in double figures, led by Tyree Appleby with 16, and CSU (5-8) pulled away in the second half in Cleveland. Niagara (5-5) has a couple Michigan kids in the starting lineup, senior Chris Barton and junior James Towns, and Towns led the Purple in scoring tonight with 18.

Non-Conference Titan Opponents
Dayton 85, Western Michigan 72. Remember how the Flyers lit up the Titans with 68.5% field goal shooting? Well, they hit 60.4% against Western tonight, and added 17 of 19 from the foul line. I'm not saying we played decent defense against the Flyers, but they are a good shooting team. Josh Cunningham led Dayton (6-5) with 28. Western (5-6) got 20 points from Mike Flowers. Western's Seth Dugan, who lit up the Titans for 32 points and 22 rebounds, averaged 19 points and 10.5 rebounds through Western's first 8 games, but just 6 points and 5 rebounds in the last three.

Cal-Irvine 52, Eastern Michigan 48. Irvine totally shut down Eastern's star center, James Thompson, holding him to just 2 field goal attempts in 33 minutes. Irvine (11-2) is a pretty good team, but EMU (5-6) seems more disappointing with every season. I wonder if Coach Murphy is on the hot seat yet.

Toledo 86, Cornell 70. Jaelan Sanford had 29 points as the 11-1 Rockets rocketed to a 9th consecutive win.

Other Games
Central Michigan 81, UMKC 72. Central is 9-2.

#3 Tennessee 83, Samford 70. Samford (10-3) hasn't beaten anyone of note, but the three teams they've lost to--Tennessee, Ohio State, and Belmont--are a combined 28-3.

#5 Virginia 69, South Carolina 52.
North Carolina State 78, #7 Auburn 71. NC State's only loss is to Wisconsin.
#11 Florida State 95, North Florida 81
#13 Virginia Tech 82, North Carolina A&T 60.
#17 Mississippi State 98, Wofford 87.
#22 Indiana 86, Central State 53.

Penn State 73, Duquesne 67. Duquesne coach Keith Dambrot has the opposite scheduling philosophy of Mike Davis. The Dukes (8-3) are picking up a lot of wins against patsies, but any time they face a more serious foe, they've had trouble. Sophomore Eric Williams, the one who got away, had 21 points for Duquesne.

Cincinnati 93, UCLA 64. A home loss to Belmont, and now this shellacking? This is gettin' embarrassing for UCLA (7-4).

St. John's 86, St. Francis (NY) 52. Johnnies go to 11-0.
DePaul 81, Incarnate Word 71. DePaul is 8-2
San Francisco 76, Northern Arizona 60. The Dons are 11-1.
Loyola Marymount 70, Boise State 69. The Lions are 11-1. James Batemon won it with a layup with 1 second left.
Belmont 80, Western Kentucky 74. The Bruins are 9-1.

Gardner-Webb 106, Brevard 29. The lopsided score caught my eye.

Thursday, December 20

Horizon
Northern Kentucky 65, Northern Illinois 62. A tight game all the way. With 4 seconds left, Tyler Sharpe missed a chance to put it away when he missed a free throw. Up three, NKU fouled to prevent the three point shot, and it worked. Drew McDonald led the Norse (10-3) with 15 points and 12 rebounds. One-time Titan commit Lacy James (found medically ineligible due to a heart condition) is now a starter at Northern Illinois. James entered the game averaging 9.5 points and 7.2 rebounds. We could use him, though he had a bad night tonight, with 0 points and 3 boards.

Titan Non-Conference Opponents
Purdue 95, Ohio 67. Carsen Edwards scored 30 for Purdue (7-5), which shot 57%. Ohio U (7-4) got 15 from Ben Vander Plas.

Other games
#2 Duke 69, #11 Texas Tech 58. In Madison Square Garden, Duke held Tech (10-1) without a field goal for the final 6:20, and outscored Tech 16-3 to claim the win. A really good game in which Tech, behind Jarrett Culver's 25 points, led most of the way. Zion Williamson was the man for Duke (11-1) with 17 points and 13 rebounds. Tech's loss leaves 8 unbeaten teams in D1.

#21 Houston 60, Utah State 50. Houston rallied from a 10 point half time deficit to stay undefeated. The Cougars (11-0) held the Aggies (9-3) to 19 second half points.

Notre Dame 100, Jacksonvill 74. The Irish are 9-3.
North Texas 77, Arkansas Pine Bluff 66. NTU is 11-1.
