Horizon
Xavier 69, Detroit 55. Nice game for King. I didn't think the refs were atrocious, but they sure didn't give us any close calls, and the fouls were pretty lopsided (2-1) in favor in Xavier. Wouldn't have mattered, I think. We really need McFolley to find his shot. Come to think of it, we need Antoine to hit a few more shots too, although in his case, teams are keying on him and he's just not getting good looks. We need some plays that shake him free, and McFolley heating up again would help with Antoine, too. Antoine is 36-119 (30.3%) since the Kent State game. He dropped to a tie for third in the nation in scoring average after tonight's 19 point game. Good effort all around. We're just short of talent, and the Fox announcers did a good job of pointing out that the Titans, because of their late assembly as a team, still have far fewer practices under the belts than other teams. I'm by no means predicting a league title, or even a first division finish at this point, but there's no one in the Horizon we can't beat.

#10 Michigan State 99, Oakland 69. State (10-2) put this one away early. Cassius Winston led all scorers with 26. Freshman Braden Norris had 18 for Oakland (4-9).

Morehead State 74, IUPUI 70. IUPUI (8-5) came back from an early 15 point deficit to lead for most of the second half, but they let it slip away in the final minutes--a common story for Horizon teams this year. Camron Justice had 20 points for IUPUI. Host Morehead State is 4-8.

UIC 76, St. Francis (Ill.) 56. This is not one of the Division 1 St. Francises. Tarkus Ferguson led UIC (6-7) with 15 points, 10 rebounds, and 5 assists.

Titan Non-conference Opponents
Bowling Green 73, Western Carolina 52. Justin Turner had 21 for Bowling Green (7-5), which is a perfect 6-0 at home.

Butler 71, Cal-Irvine 54. Irvine's been pretty good this year, 11-2 entering the game, with their only losses to Toledo and Utah State, but Butler was all over the Anteaters from the opening tip, leading by 24 at the half. Paul Jorgenson led the Dawgs (9-3) with 17 points and 7 rebounds.

Kent State 66, Oregon State 63. Kent (9-2) got a tough road win when the Beavers (7-4) last second three point attempt clanged off the rim. Jaylin Walker had 26 points and 7 rebounds for the Golden Flashes.

UMass-Lowell 97, Loyola (Md) 79. Andrew Kostecka led Loyola with 23 against the Titans, and has led them in scoring in every game since. He had 23 in tonight's loss.

Other Games

#8 Gonzaga 101, Denver 40. The final score says it all.

#20 Marquette 103, #14 Buffalo 85. Marquette pulled away in the second half behind a shooting clinic from Markus Howard, who scored 40 points in the second half, including 25 straight for Marquette at one point. After scoring just 5 points in the first half on 1-7 shooting, Howard was 11-18 from the floor, 8-10 from three, and 10-10 from the foul line in the second half. The win was Marquette's 7th in a row and left them a perfect 9-0 at home and 10-2 overall. Buffalo--which really played pretty well--takes its first loss.

LSU 75, #24 Furman 57. I noted in an earlier scorecard that AP voters were recognizing Furman's unbeaten record and wins over Loyola and Villanova, but no one seriously thinks they're among the best 25 teams in the country. No embarrassment in losing at LSU (8-3), but a good reality check. Furman (12-1) could still be a dangerous team in March.

Northeastern 64, Saint Bonaventure 59.
Providence 71, Texas 65.
Oklahoma 76, Northwestern 69 (OT).
Baylor 57, Oregon 47.
Lipscomb 91, Vermont 66. A couple of good, "low majors." Lipscomb is 9-3, Vermont 9-4.

Austin Peay 88, Campbell 75. Campbell (5-6) lost, but Chris Clemons, the nation's leading scorer, had 30. The top two scorers in the nation after tonight are both Big South players, Clemons and Hampton's Jermaine Marrow.

La Salle 80, Alabama A&M 57. Something had to give as a pair of teams with 0-10 records faced off. Monmouth and Coppin State are other winless teams.

Mid-Major Win of the Day
Troy 74, Alabama-Birmingham 73. Jordan Varnado hit a game winning jumper with 11 seconds left. Varnado finished with 32 points.

With the losses by Furman and Buffalo, 6 teams are left unbeaten, from 6 different conferences: Houston, Michigan, Nevada, St. John's, Kansas, and Virginia.

Saturday, December 22

Horizon
The Horizon league non-conference schedule wrapped up with 3 games today:

Milwaukee 67, Western Michigan 66. The Horizon gets a rare win in a close game, and a rare upset win, as Milwaukee won in Kalamazoo. The Panthers trailed most of the game but scored the final 6 points, with Vance Johnson putting back a blocked shot for the winner with 1 second remaining. Darius Roy led Milwaukee with 18, while Mike Flowers had 13 for Western (5-7), which lost for the 5th time in 6 games. Milwaukee (5-8) enters Horizon play with some momentum, having won its last three.

Evansville 80, Green Bay 75. Green Bay (6-7) was in it until the final 10 seconds, but couldn't squeeze past Evansville and be just the third Horizon team with a winning non-conference record. Novi's Kamron Hankerson led Green Bay with 18 points.

#17 Mississippi State 67, Wright State 63. Wright State has been a disappointment this year, but give them credit today. They refused to fold, battling back repeatedly from double digit deficits to within a point or even a tie, but they couldn't get the final basket to get over the hump. Mississippi State (11-1) made 5 of 6 free throws in the final minute to keep the Raiders (6-7) at bay. Billy Wampler led Wright State with 19 points.

The league finished 57-72 overall, and 41-72 against D1 competition. The league ranks 19th among the 32 conferences in NET, and also under the old RPI formula. Only IUPUI (8-5) and Northern Kentucky (10-3) will enter conference play with winning records. The Titans have the worst overall record at 3-9.

Titan Non-Conference Opponents
Eastern Michigan 91, Siena Heights 71. Kevin McAdoo (where have I heard that name) scored 18 and James Thompson had 17 points and 16 rebounds as Eastern squared its record at 6-6. But 4 of those wins are against NAIA competition.

Dayton 81, Presbyterian 69. Not as close as it looks: Dayton (7-5) led by 28 at halftime. Cory Hightower had 11 points and 8 rebounds for Presbyterian (6-7)

Temple 82, Drexel 64. Shiz Alston had 25 and Nate Pierre-Louis 22 for Temple (10-2).

#6 Nevada 68, Akron 62. Akron kept the pressure on theh Wolves, but Nevada (12-0) closes out a game as well as any team in the country. Caleb Martin drilled a three with 45 seconds left to put Akron on the ropes, and Nevada then hit 5 of 6 free throws in the final 30 seconds. Martin finished with 19 points and 10 rebounds. For Akron (7-5), Daniel Utomi had 14 and 10.

Some Other Games
#4 Michigan 71, Air Force 50. The Wolverines (12-0) keep rolling.
Central Michigan 81, Jackson State 72. Central is playing a creampuff schedule, but a 10-2 record still looks nice.

#18 Arizona State 80, #1 Kansas 76. It seems like Kansas always had trouble early, and won late. But tonight they led most of the game, and lost late. ASU outscored the Jayhawks 13-2 down the stretch. Excellent game, hope you watched it.

#3 Tennessee 83, Wake Forest 64.
#5 Virginia 72, William & Mary 40. Unbeaten Virginia is surrendering an average of 50.3 point per game. Six of it 11 opponents have failed to crack 50 points.

#7 Auburn 93, Murray State 88. Trailing by 9 with 55 seconds to go, Murray State closed the gap to 3 with 19 seconds left, but couldn't get closer. Ja Morant had 25 for Murray State (8-2), leading all scorers.

#19 Kentucky 80, #9 North Carolina 72. The blood doesn't get any bluer than this. Kentucky (9-2) closed out the first half with a 14-6 run for a 9 point halftime lead, and then held off every Carolina (8-3) rally in the second half. A good, interesting game of teams that should be big factors come March.

#11 Florida State 81, Saint Louis 59. The Seminoles (11-1) shot 55%.
#15 Ohio State 80, UCLA 66. The Big 10 keeps rolling up big wins, while UCLA's season keeps going south.
#16 Wisconsin 84, Grambling 53.
#22 Indiana 94, Jacksonville 64.

#23 Iowa 110, Savannah State 64. Savannah State (3-11), the anti-Virginia, is giving up an average of 100.1 points per game. In the Tigers last 6 games, they've given up an average of 62.8 points in the first half alone.

#25 Nebraska 86, Cal State-Fullerton 62.

St. Joe's 45, Loyola 42. St. Joe's Lamarr Kimble threw up what was little more than a Hail Mary three pointer with one second left to play. Swish.

Boston College 65, DePaul 62. The Blue Demons (8-3) led this one from the first basket until the final 35 seconds. BC is 9-2.
St. John's 104, Sacred Heart 82. St. John's goes to 12-0.
Villanova 81, Connecticut 58.
Seton Hall 78, Maryland 74.
Missouri 79, Illinois 63. Missouri (8-3) pulled away late.
VCU 70, Wichita State 54.
Kansas State 69, Vanderbilt 58.
San Francisco 74, Stanford 65. The Dons (12-1) haven't had a better start since Bill Cartwright led the 1977 team to a 26-0 start and #1 ranking.
Drake 66, New Mexico State 63. Two mid-majors that are off to good starts. Drake is 9-2, New Mexico State 9-3.

Alabama A&M 67, Tulane 59. A&M (1-11) gets its first win. Is this the worst field ever for a tournament? The four teams in "Battle of the Boardwalk" in Atlantic City, and their records at the start of the weekend, were A&M (0-10), Tulane (4-6), La Salle (0-10), and Towson (3-7).

Hampton 89, Howard 82. Jermaine Marrow, the nation's #2 scorer, had 31 for Hampton (5-7).
Campbell 70, Alabama State 69. 36 points for Chris Clemons of Campbell, the nation's leading scorer. Campbell (6-6) almost lost after being ahead by 16 with under 5 six minutes to play.

Mid Major Win of the Day
Indiana State 72, Colorado 67. The PAC 12 has really struggled in the non-conference season, ranking 6th in both NET and RPI but far behind the other five "P6" conferences. Colorado entered this game with the best record (8-2) of PAC 12 teams, but never led against the Sycamores.

Sunday, December 23
A light schedule as Christmas approaches.

Other Games
#21 Houston 75, Coppin State 44. Down to just 5 unbeaten teams after Furman, Kansas, and Buffalo lost this weekend. Houston (12-0) is one of the undefeated.

Drake 110, San Diego 103 (2OT). Drake tied it at the end of regulation on a three pointer with 2 seconds left, then tied it in the OT with free throws with 4 seconds left. The Bulldogs (10-2) then scored 17 points in the second OT, including 7-7 from the line down the stretch. San Diego is 10-4, including wins over Colorado and Washington State.

TCU 82, Bucknell 65. TCU is 10-1.
Indiana State 84, UNLV 79.
New Mexico State 75, Washington State 72. Washington State (7-5) tied it on a three by freshman CJ Ellerbee with 7 seconds left; New Mexico State (10-3) won it on a three by senior Jo Jo Zamora with 1 second left. The two led their teams in scoring with 20 and 28 points, respectively. College basketball is a great game.

Back to action after a Christmas break.

Horizon
Detroit 78, Youngstown State 66. I'll take a conference road win any day, I don't care who the competition is. Most of my thoughts on the game are in the game thread. Not to take anything off today's victory, but the Penguins outrebounded us 41-31, and that was without Naz Bohannan, the #2 rebounder in the conference. Bohannan apparently has the flu or some other bug, and was scratched shortly before game time. Also missing was guard Devin Morgan, who was averaging 24 minutes per game. Academics, perhaps? Anyway, the Titans have a favorable early schedule in conference, and need to take advantage. Today they did, and I'm happy. Cleveland State will be tougher.

Oakland 89, Cleveland State 77. Oakland (5-9) led cover to cover in Cleveland, pulling away in the second half. Jaevin Cumberland had 27 points and Xavier Hill-Maas 21 for the Grizzled. Tyree Appleby led host CSU (5-9) with 21.

UIC 75, Wright State 72 (OT). Two of the pre-season favorites squared off, and UIC came away with a road win in overtime. The biggest lead for either team was an early 7 point lead for Wright State, which UIC eliminated with a 9-0 run ending midway through the first half. After that there were 9 lead changes and 5 ties in the last 29 minutes of regulation, the final tie coming when Tarkus Ferguson hit a jumper for UIC. The overtime saw three more lead changes and 4 ties before Travell Washington won it with a 3 at the buzzer. UIC was very fortunate, because 3 of their players were kicked out of the game for fighting, and another fouled out. With Dominique Mathews and Rob Howard injured, that left UIC with just 5 players to take the floor, and by the end of the OT, 3 of them had 4 fouls. Another OT and the Flames likely would have run out of players. Washington, a freshman from San Bernardino, California, made 4 of 6 three-point attempts to finish with 13 points, his first double figure game in college. Marcus Ottey led UIC (7-7) with 23 points, while Ferguson had 18 points and 10 rebounds. Cole Gentry led WSU (6-8) with 24.

Northern Kentucky 92, IUPUI 77. A 17-2 run late in the first half blew open a tight game and the Norse cruised to victory--preventing visiting teams from sweeping on the Horizon's opening night. A late IUPUI rally made the final score appear like a tighter game than it was. Drew McDonald led NKU with 24 points and 12 rebounds.


Titan Non-Conference Opponents
Kent State 70, Albany 68. Kent State (10-2) had a surprisingly difficult time with the Great Danes (4-10), finally winning it on a pair of Jaylin Walker free throws with three seconds left. Walker, the senior from Inkster, finished with 26.

#20 North Carolina State 97, Loyola (Md.) 64. Andrew Kostenka had 27 for Loyola (4-9). Loyola and Western Michigan are the only non-conference Titan opponents with losing records.

Other Games
#7 Gonzaga 95, North Alabama 51.
#10 Virginia Tech 85, Maryland-Eastern Shore 40.
#11 Texas Tech 71, UT-Rio Grande 46.
#18 Marquette 84, Southern 41.
A lot of ranked teams picking on scrubs in a final pre-conference warm-up.

Hofstra 91, Delaware 46. The Colonial also started conference play today. Hofstra (11-3) and Delaware (8-6 were two of the more successful teams in non-conference play, but Hofstra won easily tonight.

Saturday, December 29
Horizon
Green Bay 92, Milwaukee 82. Milwaukee jumped out to a 14-2 lead and stayed in front into the second half. but Green Bay was just a whole lot better in that second half, and gradually took the lead and pulled away. Free throws were the key--the visitors took 20 more foul shots than Milwaukee and outscored the home team 27-10 from the line. The win left visiting teams 4 for 5 in the first wave of Horizon games. Sandy Cohen had 28 for Green Bay (7-7, 1-0). Darius Roy led Milwaukee (5-9, 0-1) with 25.

Titan Non-Conference Opponents
#5 Kansas 87, Eastern Michigan 63. Eastern (6-7) gets smoked, despite 15 points and 14 rebounds from James Thompson. The rest of the Hurons shot 26%.

Xavier 74, DePaul 65. Xavier (9-5) closed out the game with a 9-2 run in the final two minutes. Naj Marshall had 19 points and 14 rebounds for Xavier--you'll recall he missed the Detroit game. DePaul is 8-4, but could be another long Big East season.

Florida 77, Butler 43. I thought Florida would win this game, but the margin was a surprise--especially given that Butler (9-4) had beaten the Gators on a neutral floor last month. But the Gators (8-4) scored the first 21 points of this game and racked up 4 block and 4 steals by the 12 minute mark of the first half.

Toledo 77, Penn 45. The Rockets (12-1) trailed by 3 with five minutes left in the first half, but outscored Penn 55-20 the rest of the way. The win was Toledo's 10th straight, and halted Penn's 6 game winning streak. Penn is 10-3, including wins over Miami, Villanova, and at New Mexico, so this was a pretty impressive win for Toledo.

Dayton 94, Georgia Southern 90. Josh Cunningham had 25 points and Jalen Crutcher made 4 free throws in the final 13 seconds to thwart a late Georgia Southern rally. Both teams are now 8-5.

Other Games
#8 Michigan State 88, Northern Illinois 60. This game was pretty much over by halftime, with MSU ((11-2) up 24. Cassius Winston had 24 points.

#3 Tennessee 96, Tennessee Tech 53.
#6 Nevada 86, Utah 71. Nevada (13-0) pulled away in the second half, to finish their non-conference slate unbeaten.

#12 Auburn 95, North Florida 49.
#13 Ohio State 82, High Point 64.
#14 North Carolina 82, Davidson 60.

#16 Kentucky 71, Louisville 58. Kentucky opened up this rivalry game with an 11-0 run midway through the first half.

Princeton 67, #17 Arizona State 66. Arizona State's comedown from their win over #1 Kansas was as quick as, well, their next game. Richmond Aririguzoh hit a pair of free throws with 25 seconds left to give Princeton (7-5) its final lead in a see-saw game. Detroiter and former Cleveland State Viking Rob Edwards missed a jumper for the win with 2 seconds remaining. I've got to get over to a couple PU games in January.

#19 Mississippi State 103, BYU 81. Quindarry Weatherspoon led the rout with 27 points.
#21 Buffalo 87, Canisius 72. The tough job of being even a successful mid-major: Buffalo (12-1) entered last week unbeaten and ranked #14. They beat Syracuse in the Carrier Dome by 12, then lost at #20 Marquette on Markus Howard's career night, and they dropped 7 spots in the polls. Tonight they took it out on neighboring Canisius (3-8).

#22 Houston 80, NJIT 59. I may take in some NJIT games, too, if I can figure out where they are located. NJIT is 11-3 after the loss. Houston stays unbeaten (13-0). Houston has won 26 straight at home, the longest streak in the country.

#24 Iowa 72, Bryant 67.

Seton Hall 76, St. John's 74, St. John's entered as one of 5 unbeaten teams in the country, yet still unranked. What do they have to do to get some respect? Maybe beating Seton Hall will do it. It looked like a Johnnies win was in the offing, with St. John's leading most of the way, but Shavar Reynolds hit a three at the final buzzer to snatch the victory for Seton Hall (10-3).

Syracuse 81, St. Bonaventure 47.
Purdue 73, Belmont 62.
Notre Dame 63, Coppin State 56. The Irish are 10-3. Coppin State (0-15) is one of two winless teams left in D1.

East Tennessee State 79, Furman 56. ETSU (11-4) dominated Furman (12-2) in a Southern Conference opener.

Mid Major Win of the Day
An excellent day for mid-majors, with lot of candidates...
The usual high-major suspects lost:
Gardner-Webb 73, Wake Forest 69
Liberty 73, UCLA 58.
Texas Southern 88, Texas A&M 75.
Santa Clara 79, Washington State 71
Florida Atlantic 73, Illinois 71 (OT)
Seattle 82, California 73

And of course there is Princeton's win over Arizona State, noted above.
but the winner is...
Western Kentucky 83, #15 Wisconsin 76. Taeviean Hollingsworth scored 22, freshman stud Charles Bassey added 19, and freshman Delano Banton had 13 rebounds and 10 assists in WKU's win. The Hilltoppers are just 7-6, but also have wins over West Virginia and Arkansas. Ben Davison had 26 points and Ethan Happ had 20 points and 12 boards for Wisconsin (10-3).

Sunday, December 30
The nation's P6 teams were, for the most part, off today, but there were some good mid-major games.

Horizon
Detroit 73, Cleveland State 61. Nothing wrong with starting the season 2-0 on the road. It would be sort of churlish to note flaws in the Titan performance. So just on the good side: It was nice to see a couple of low percentage foul shooters--Hamrick and Blackshear--knock 'em down in the final minute to clinch the win, and it's good to see other Titans pick up the scoring slack on a tough night for Antoine.

Josh McFolley's 15 points moved him past Dick Dzik and into a tie with Jon Goode for 24th on the Titans' all-time scoring list. Dick Dzik was the Titans' star in between All-Americans Dave DeBusschere and Dorie Murrey. In 1964 he averaged 21.7 points and 20.8 rebounds, 3rd in the nation. The Titans led the country in scoring that year with 96.1 points per game. Jon Goode was a four year player who averaged 19.3 points per game during the difficult 2008 season. [EDIT 1/1/19: Oops! I counted Josh's points tonight twice. He is actually still 1 point behind Dzik and 15 behind Goode]. McFolley had three steals and has moved past Ray McCallum into 4th on the Titans all-time list. He needs just 17 more to become the Titans' all time leader.

Oakland 76, Youngstown State 74. Oakland (6-9, 2-0) got the double road wins to start the season when Kamari Newman hit a three with 22 seconds left to play, and YSU's Devin Morgan missed a three with 2 seconds left. Oakland led for most of the early going, but YSU came back from 11 down to take the lead by a point midway through the second half. Oakland responded with a 12-2 run, then it was the Penguins turn, with a 14-2 spurt leaving them up three with just over two minutes to go before the Grizzlies scored the final 5 points. Oakland made 20 of 22 foul shots and hit 55% from the floor. YSU also topped 50% from the floor, but made just 9 of 18 foul shots. Brad Brechting emerged with a big game for Oakland with 19 points on 7-9 shooting from the floor and 5-5 from the line. Darius Quisenberry had 21 for the Penguins (4-11, 0-2).

Northern Kentucky 73, UIC 58. NKU (12-3, 2-0) asserted itself as a Horizon favorite by knocking off the initial teams, IUPUI and UIC, this weekend. This was an impressive win today. The Norse seemed in charge even when they were behind early. And when a little UIC rally cut the 16 point lead to 8 with just under 6 minutes to play, the Norse clamped down on defense, giving up just 1 point the rest of the way. Jalen Tate had 25 points on 8-11 shooting, and Drew McDonald had 19 points and 20 rebounds--the first NKU player to hit that latter mark in 46 years. Despite being dominated today, UIC (7-8, 1-1) can't be too unhappy with a weekend road split against the conference favorites.

Wright State 72, IUPUI 64. Wright State opened a double digit lead, held off a late Jaguar rally, and closed it out as Cole Gentry hit 8 straight free throws in the final 72 seconds. Gentry finished with 20, including 10-10 from the line, and Billy Wampler had 22 for the Raiders (7-8, 1-1). Camron Justice led IUPUI (8-7, 0-2) with 17, but was 0-7 from 3.

Titan Non-Conference Opponents
Western Michigan 73, Cal-Riverside 64. Mike Flowers had 24 for WMU (6-7), which had lost 5 of 6.

Ohio U. 68, Florida International 66. Ohio turned it over 23 times and blew a 12 point second half lead, but claimed the win when Jason Carter made a putback with 2.6 seconds left. Carter finished with 19 points and 9 rebounds to lead the Bobcats (8-4). FIU is 9-4.

Bowling Green 94, Tennessee-Martin 80. That Titan win over Bowling Green keeps looking better. The Falcons won their 4th straight to finish non-conference play at 8-5. Demajeo Wiggins had 20 points and 13 rebounds, and is averaging 15 and 12 on the season.

Akron 82, Carnegie Mellon 55. Akron is 8-5 heading into MAC play.

Other Games that Caught My Eye
#2 Michigan 74, Binghamton 52. Binghamton (4-10) gave Michigan (13-0) a tussle, hanging within three until the final 11 minutes, when Michigan launched a 19-4 run to end hopes for a big upset.

Central Michigan 123, Indiana-South Bend 76. Central snarfed up the non-D1 win to finish its non-conference season at 11-2.

Miami (Oh) 70, Evansville 67.
Clemson 84, Lipscomb 67. Lipscomb entered the game at 9-3, with a win at Texas Christian and a 4 point loss at Louisville, so they were a real threat to the Tigers (10-3).

Northwestern 75, Columbia 54. I'm sure there was some excellent reporting on this game.

Holy Cross 78, Iona 71. Iona's string of 9 straight 20-win seasons is in big jeopardy. The Gaels are 2-9. Holy Cross (9-4) is looking for its first winning season in 5 years.

Non-Conference Titan Opponents
Kent State 71, Oberlin 48. Kent State (11-2) eats a cupcake.

Some Games
#4 Virginia 100, Marshall 64. A moral victory for Marshall (7-6), which joins Maryland as the only teams to reach 60 points against Virginia (12-0) this year.

Creighton 79, Providence 68.
NJIT 78, Duquesne 67.
Monmouth 76, Penn 74 (OT). Penn was missing starting center Michael Wang, but still has no real excuse for losing at home to Monmouth (1-12), which entered as one of two winless teams in D1. There were 13 lead changes and 24 ties in this game. Michigan freshman Bryce Washington had 17 points for the Quakers (10-4).

Mid-Major Upset of the Day
Hartford 79, Boston College 78 (OT). Hartford (7-8) beats BC (9-3) for the second time in three years.

Happy New Year, from all of us at Packard!

And a little correction--in the December 30 scoreboard, I reported that Josh McFolley has caught Dick Dzik and Jon Goode on the Titans all-time scoring list. Not yet--I added his points from December 30 to his prior career total twice. Josh will enter Thursday's game with Wright State 1 point behind Dzik and 15 behind Goode.

A Few Games
#9 Florida State 87, Winthrop 76.
#10 Virginia Tech 81, Notre Dame 66.
St. John's 89, #16 Marquette 69. Maybe this will finally get St. John's (13-1) some respect in the polls.

Titan Non-Conference Opponents
Central Florida 78, Temple 73. UCF (11-2) held off a late Temple rally. Nate Pierre-Louis led Temple (10-3) with 21. It's been a long time since we Titan fans saw 7'6" Tacko Fall back in the 2015 preseason. Now a senior, he had 16 points and 11 rebounds for UCF.

Seton Hall 80, Xavier 70. Seton Hall (11-3) won its 7th straight, overcoming a 10 point second half deficit and then outscoring Xavier 12-2 down the stretch. Paul Scruggs had 22 and Zach Hankins 20 for Xavier (9-6).

Georgetown 84, Butler 76. There was no home cookin' for Butler (9-5) tonight. The host Dogs took 11 foul shots, to Georgetown's 32. Georgetown (11-3) only made 56% of those free throws, but that was more than the final margin.

Other Games of No Interest
#8 Michigan State 81, Northwestern 55. You know, both Michigan and Michigan State (12-2) are good enough to reach the final four. 13 points and 12 assists for Cassius Winston tonight. Northwestern drops to 9-5.

#5 Kansas 70, #23 Oklahoma 63. Oklahoma (11-2) closed a 12 point gap with 5 minutes left to just 4, but Devon Dotson hit three free throws for Kansas (12-1) to stop the rally.

#11 Texas Tech 62, West Virginia 59.
#15 North Carolina 77, Harvard 57.
#19 Houston 74, Tulsa 56. Houston (14-0) is one of 4 unbeaten teams left. Tulsa is 10-4.
Maryland 74, #24 Nebraska 72.

South Florida 76, Connecticut 68.
Villanova 73, DePaul 68. Looks like another long Big East season for the Blue Demons.
Texas 67, Kansas State 47.
Lehigh 86, Lafayette 83. This is a big rivalry in eastern PA.
Loyola 79, Indiana State 44. The Ramblers (8-6) raked the Sycamores (8-5) in the MVC opener for both teams. Loyola held Indiana State to 12 first half points in opening up a 34 point lead at the break.

Valparaiso 58, Illinois State 56. The MVC favorites--of which Illinois State was one--have struggled this year, and the teams with the best non-conference records, Indiana State and Drake, both lost tonight.

Thursday, January 3

Horizon League
Detroit 79, Wright State 58. Wow! What defense. Davis was pretty good, too. But what defense!

Oakland 76, Northern Kentucky 74. Xavier Hill-Maas scored 9 points in the final 10 minutes as Oakland (7-9, 3-0) rallied from 10 down in the second half to take out NKU (12-4, 2-1). That and the Titans' win leaves the Detroit Metro teams tied atop the Horizon. Hill finished with 32 points.

Green Bay 99, Youngstown State 93 (OT). Darius Quisenberry and Jalani Simmons each had career highs in points for YSU, but JayQuan McCloud, Kameron Hankerson, and PJ Pipes all had season highs for Green Bay (8-7, 2-0), and three beats two every time, even if it takes an overtime. YSU (4-12, 0-3) led by as many as 11 early in the second half. Pipes made two free throws to tie the game with 32 seconds left in regulation, and kept the Penguins at bay in the overtime by scoring Green Bay's last 6 points, all on free throws.

Milwaukee 83, Cleveland State 76. Milwaukee (6-9, 1-1) came from 14 down in the second half to breeze past Cleveland State (5-11, 0-3) in Milwaukee. Darius Roy had 24 and Jake Wright 16 to offset a 33 point night for the Vikings' Tyree Appleby.

Titan Non-Conference Opponents
Holy Cross 80, Loyola (Md) 73. Andrew Kostenka scored 29, but Loyola (4-10) lost its 4th in a row.

Other Games
#2 Michigan 68, Penn State 55. Ignas Brazdeikis had 16 points and 11 rebounds for 14-0 Michigan.

#18 North Carolina State 87, Miami (Fla) 82.

#21 Indiana 73, Illinois 65. Freshman Romeo Langford had 28 points as the Hoosiers (12-2) won their 7th straight.

Minnesota 59, #22 Wisconsin 52. Minnesota (12-2) held Wisconsin (10-4) scoreless for 9 minutes on the way to a 29-14 halftime lead, then held off a late rally.

Purdue 86, #25 Iowa 70. The Boilermakers (9-5) dropped 52 points on Iowa in the 1st half. Iowa is 11-3, but all its losses are in Big 10 play.

UCLA 92, Stanford 70. Interim Coach Murray Bartow wins his first game with UCLA (8-6).
Utah 96, Arizona State 86. The Sun Devils (9-4) have lost two straight since upsetting Kansas.

Memphis 85, Wichita State 74.
San Francisco 76, St. Mary's 72. USF (13-2) establishes itself as Gonzaga's main WCC challenger this year. St. Mary's (9-7) has already lost more games than in any of the past 3 years.

North Texas 63, Louisiana Tech 59. An early show of strength between CUSA favorites. North Texas (14-1) equals its best start ever, set in 1953.

Cal Baptist 82, New Mexico State 76. Milan Acquaah scored 36 and Cal Baptist (9-5) upset conference favorite New Mexico State (11-4) in its first WAC game ever.

Lincoln 77, Morgan State 75. Not exactly the mid-major upset of the day, but D-II Lincoln knocked off D1 Morgan State. David Syfax, a junior forward from Detroit Pershing, had 8 points for Morgan State.

Friday, January 4

Horizon
IUPUI 66, UIC 64. This is going to be one topsy-turvy Horizon season. UIC got a quick leg up by beating pre-season favorite Wright State on the road, but lost tonight at home to IUPUI, which was swept last weekend. Tonight IUPUI scored the game's first 10 points, fell behind early in the second half, regained the lead, fell behind, and finally found themselves up by 8 with 1:55 to play. UIC cut the gap to 3 and Tarkus Ferguson attempted a game tying three--well, really a half court heave--with 3 seconds left, and was fouled. But the refs ruled the foul came before the shot. Ferguson made both free throws, UIC immediately fouled Elijah Goss on the inbounds, and Goss made 1 of 2 with two seconds left. Ferguson got off yet another last second desperation heave, and hit the backboard and then the rim, but it didn't go down. Camron Justice finished with 30 points for IUPUI (9-7, 1-2), the 4th league player to hit that mark this weekend. Godwin Boahen led UIC (7-9, 1-2) with 18.

Titan Non-Conference Opponents
#20 Buffalo 74, Eastern Michigan 58. EMU's disappointing (6-8) season continues. Buffalo's dream year (13-1) rolls on.

Ball State 79, Toledo 64. Ball State (10-4) was off to a good start this year, but I don't think anyone predicted them to maul the Rockets in Savage Hall. The kids from Muncie scored the game's first 9 points and never trailed. The loss ended a 10 game win streak for Toledo (12-2).

Other Games
SMU 74, Tulane 65. SMU is 10-4.

Saturday, January 5
Horizon
Northern Kentucky 95, Detroit 73. It was disappointing to watch the zone defense fall apart in the second half, but I'll take the weekend split against the league favorites. Willie is going to be a factor, and today's game notwithstanding, I think we're going to be a factor. Attendance today was disappointing at an announced 1241, and it looked sparser on the tube.

Wright State 89, Oakland 73. Oakland beat Northern Kentucky and gets smoked by Wright State. Detroit beats Wright State and gets smoked by Northern Kentucky. And Green Bay moves into first on a buzzer beater at home against last place Cleveland. Gonna be a crazy year. In this one, Jaevin Cumberland had 26 for OU (7-10, 3-1). Loudon Love had 19 points and 11 boards for Wright State (8-9, 2-2).

Green Bay 90, Cleveland State 89. Green Bay (9-7, 3-0) takes over first place in the Horizon with a 1 point home win over CSU (5-12, 0-4). Sandy Cohen hit the game winner at the buzzer. Cohen's 30 points made him the 5th HL player with a 30 point game this weekend. Tyree Appleby had 27 points and 7 assists for Cleveland. Green Bay's next game is at Calihan this coming Thursday, and first place will again be on the line.

Youngstown State 76, Milwaukee 51. After narrowly missing at Green Bay on Thursday, YSU (5-12, 1-3) hammered the Panthers (6-10, 1-2) in Milwaukee today. Perhaps their season won't be so bad after all. Darius Quisenberry had 12 points, 8 rebounds and 6 assists for the winners.

Non-Conference Titan Opponents
Akron 56, Western Michigan 48. The Zips were 6 of 31 from three point range, but WMU (6-8) was 4 of 26 and the Zips (9-5) won.

Bowling Green 86, Kent State 64. Bowling Green (9-5) bowled over Kent in Kent, behind 20 points from Justin Turner and 19 points and 14 rebounds for Demajeo Wiggins. Hard to figure, given that Kent entered 11-2 overall, with wins over Vanderbilt and Oregon State, and 7-1 at home, and Bowling Green was winless on the road. Guess that's why we play the games.

Northern Illinois 72, Ohio 66 (OT). Ohio U. (8-5) raced out to a 21-7 lead, but NIU battled back to win in OT. One-time Titan commit Lacy James had 14 points and 10 rebounds for NIU ((8-6).

Butler 84, Creighton 69. Butler (10-5) won with surprising ease behind Kamar Baldwin's 28 points.

Other Games
#8 Michigan State 86, #14 Ohio State 77. There were 14 lead changes and 11 ties before MSU (13-2) pulled away in the final minutes. Cassius Winston had 25 and Nick Ward 21 for the Spartans. Kaleb Wesson had 25 for OSU (12-2).

Central Michigan 84, Miami (Oh) 77. CMU (12-2) goes on the road and wins its MAC opener.

#1 Duke 87, Clemson 68. Blowout.
#3 Tennessee 96, Georgia 50. Tennessee (12-1) led by 29 at the half.
#4 Virginia 65, #9 Florida State 52. Not even as close as the final score. UVa (13-0) controlled all the way.
Iowa State 77, #5 Kansas 60. Iowa State (12-2) forced 24 turnovers and led by double digits for the last 10 minutes. Mariel Shayok had 24.

New Mexico 85, #6 Nevada 58. Nevada's (14-1) dream of an unbeaten season ended with a thud. The Lobos (8-6) were up by 8 at the second TV timeout and never looked back.

#7 Gonzaga 91, Santa Clara 48. Since back-to-back losses to Tennessee and North Carolina, Gonzaga has won 5 straight by an average of 45.6 points.
#10 Virginia Tech 77, Boston College 66. Kerry Blackshear made 6 of 7 from the field and 8 of 9 from the stripe for Tech (13-1).
#11 Texas Tech 63, Kansas State 57. Tech's only loss is to Duke.

Alabama 77, #13 Kentucky 75. Tevin Mack scored 20 of his 22 points in the first half, then turned it over to Dazon Ingram, who scored all 11 of his points in the second half, and Alabama (10-3) built an 11 point lead with two and a half minutes to play. The Wildcats (10-3) cut it to 1 point with 5 seconds left, and had a chance for the win when 'Bama made just 1 of 2 free throws, but a very long three by Tyler Herro was off the mark.

#15 North Carolina 85, Pittsburgh 60. UNC (11-3) broke it open with a 16-0 run midway through the first half. Pitt is 10-4.
#23 Oklahoma 74, Oklahoma State 64.

Syracuse 72, Notre Dame 62. Syracuse (10-4) took the lead with a 9-0 run to start the second half, and went on to win in South Bend.
Villanova 65, Providence 59.
St. John's 97, Georgetown 94 (OT). Shamorie Ponds had 37 points and St. John's (14-1) won in Georgetown (11-4) for the first time in 16 years.
Davidson 65, Duquesne 61.
Central Florida 65, UConn 63. UCF is 12-2.

Princeton 68, Penn 65 (OT). Wouldn't you know it: I'm in Princeton for the year, and we a great game in the classic Ivy match-up, and I'm stuck in New Orleans today. Penn rallied from 8 down in the final minutes of regulation. They had a chance to tie in the OT but their final three pointer was off the mark. A.J. Brodeur had 18 points and 15 rebounds for Penn (10-5), which lost its third straight. Junior Richmond Arriguzoh led Princeton (8-5) with a career high 20.


East Carolina 73, Cincinnati 71. Justice Obasohan blocked a layup at the buzzer by Jarron Cumberland (cousin of Oakland's Jaevin Cumberland) to seal the upset win for ECU (8-6).

Loyola 85, Drake 74.
Tulsa 78, South Florida 75. Both teams have 11 wins.
Georgia State 73, Texas State 69. Ray McCallum's Georgia State squad (11-4) tripped up Texas State, which entered the game at 12-2.

Murray State 97, Eastern Kentucky 85. Ja Morant had 34 points, 10 assists, and 9 rebounds for Murray State (11-2). He's averaging 9.9 assists per game.
Louisiana 75, UALR 61. JaKeenan Grant had 45 points and 11 rebounds for Louisiana (10-5).

Sunday, January 6

Titan Non-Conference Opponents
Marquette 70, Xavier 52. Marquette (12-3) had a pretty easy time of it, holding Xavier to 1-14 from three. You get the sense that Chris Mack knew when to get out of Xavier. The Musketeers, who got 21 today from Naji Marshall and 17 points and 10 rebounds from Paul Scruggs, are just 9-7. Markus Howard had 23 for Marquette.

Dayton 72, Richmond 48. Josh Cunningham scored 25 points and grabbed 10 rebounds for Dayton (9-5).

Temple 85, Wichita State 81 (OT). After trailing by 15 earlier in the half, and down 11 with 3:35 to play, Temple (11-3) held the Shockers (8-7) scoreless for the remainder of regulation, forcing the OT on a Shizz Alston jumper with 37 seconds to play. Alston then hit two free throws with 18 seconds left in the extra period to clinch the win.

Lehigh 89, Loyola (Md) 72. the Greyhounds (4-11) lost their 5th consecutive, and have given up at least 80 points in all five.

A Few Other Results
#2 Michigan 74, #21 Indiana 63. This wasn't one of those games that was close until late--after the first 5 minutes, Indiana (12-3) was never within 2 possessions. Charles Mathews and Jordan Poole each had 18 for Michigan (15-0). Michigan is 29-1 since last February, the loss being to Villanova in the national final last year.

#19 Houston 90, Memphis 77. Houston (15-0) remains one of three unbeatens, with UM and Virginia.
#22 Wisconsin 71, Penn State 52.
#25 Iowa 93, #24 Nebraska 84.

DePaul 75, Seton Hall 74. DePaul almost blew a 14 point lead but held on Seton Hall's last effort, with 2 seconds left, clanked off. Maybe DePaul (9-5, 1-2) can win some Big East games this year. Seton Hall is 11-4, 2-1.

St. Louis 60, Rhode Island 53. Javon Bess led St. Louis (10-4) with 24.
Louisville 90, Miami 73.

Monday, January 7 (Sad Sack Monday)

There were 10 games around the country tonight, a total of 20 teams. Only one of those teams, Northern Colorado (9-5), entered the evening with a winning record. They beat Eastern Washington (3-12) 75-63. Other than Northern Colorado, the other 19 teams entered the night with a combined record of 65-211, including Southern and Maryland-Eastern Shore, which began, and ended, the evening winless against D1 opposition. Good night to watch college football.

Tuesday, January 8

Titan Non-Conference Opponents

Central Michigan 88, Akron 86 (OT). The Chips trailed by three with 5 seconds left on the clock in regulation, when David DiLeo was fouled on a three point attempt. He made all three. Central (13-2) won in overtime on a layup by Larry Austin with 2 seconds left. Jimond Ivory had 24 and Tyler Cheese 16 for Akron (9-8). Still love the name "Tyler Cheese."

Eastern Michigan 84, Ball State 82 (2OT). A disappointing EMU team upsets Ball State (10-5) in double overtime on the road. Elijah Minnie, who finished with 25 points for EMU, forced OT by hitting a trey with 6 seconds left in regulation. It was BSU's turn in the first OT, with Austin Nehls nailing the three with 1 second left to force a second extra period. Paul Jackson's two free throws with 17 seconds left in the second OT gave EMU its final lead, as Ball State missed a three at the buzzer. I love college basketball. James Thompson supported Minnie with 18 points and 19 rebounds for Eastern (7-8).

Kent State 88, Western Michigan 73. No two-point overtime win for Western (6-9), which lost for the 5th time in 6 games. Jaylin Walker had 23 for Kent State (12-3). I wish we could play Western again. I think we'd see a very different result than opening night.

#19 Buffalo 110, Toledo 80. Buffalo (14-1) routed what is probably its top MAC competition, behind 34 points from Jeremy Harris. Toledo (12-3) has lost 2 straight after 10 straight wins.

Bowling Green 82, Ohio 63. Bowling Green, now 10-5 with 6 straight wins, keeps looking better. Demajeo Wiggins, averaging 15.4 points and 12.3 rebounds, was held to 0 and 6 tonight, but the Falcons broke a 30-all halftime tie to clobber the Bobcats (8-6). Though starter Justin Turner had 20, BGSU's bench outscored its starters 43-39. Jason Carter had 22 for OU, his 6th 20-point game but first since the Bobcats' win over our Titans.

A Few Other Games
#6 Michigan State 77, Purdue 59. The Spartans (13-2) finished off the Boilermakers (9-5) with a late 11-0 run. 23 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists for Cassius Winston. Henry Ford grad Trevion Williams had 13 points and 12 rebounds for Purdue.

#1 Duke 87, Wake Forest 65. Zion Williamson had 30 points, 10 rebounds, and 5 assists for Duke (13-1).
#3 Tennessee 87, Missouri 63.
#8 Texas Tech 66, #23 Oklahoma 59.
#12 North Carolina 90, #15 North Carolina State 82.
South Carolina 87, #14 Mississippi 82 (OT). Big upset for the Gamecocks (7-7).
#18 Kentucky 85, Texas A&M 74.
Baylor 73, #20 Iowa State 70. Beating Kansas is a recipe for disaster. Like Arizona State, Iowa State (12-3) fell in its first game since upsetting the Jayhawks and entering the national rankings. Makai Mason had 25 for Baylor (9-5), including 7 in the final 1:48.

Villanova 76, #24 St. John's 71.

Evansville 67, Loyola 48. The magic just isn't there for the Ramblers (9-7) this year. Evansville (8-8) dominated in a match up of MVC (nee MCC) rivals.
Valparaiso 61, Bradley 50. Another old Horizon friend is off to a 3-0 start in Valley play.

Maryland 82, Minnesota 67. That was surprisingly easy, especially being as they played in the Twin Cities.
LSU 88, Alabama 79. Both teams entered the game at 10-3 and wins over top 25 teams.
Oklahoma State 61, Texas 58.

Brown 97, Canisius 90 (OT). Brown (11-4) won its 5th straight behind 31 points from Desmond Cambridge.

Titan Non-Conference Opponents
Temple 73, #17 Houston 69. And Temple makes two. Houston's defeat leaves only Michigan and Virginia undefeated. This was a back 'n forth game of mini-runs in which Temple held the upper hand more often than not, but never by much. The Owls upset wasn't decided until Houston (15-1), trailing by two, went for the tying or winning bucket on what appeared to be the final possession. Corey Davis drove the lane and hit what appeared to be a game tying layup, but was called for charging. Nate Pierre-Louis then hit the two free throws with 1 second left. Quinton Rose led Temple (12-3) with 22 and Pierre-Louis added 18.

Dayton 72, George Washington 66. The Flyers (10-5) came back from 22 points down to win.

Xavier 81, Georgetown 75. Ferris State transfer Zach Hankins had 23 points and 10 rebounds for the X-Men (10-7).

Seton Hall 76, Butler 75. A pair of free throws by Seton Hall's Myles Powell with 3 seconds left made a buzzer three for Butler (10-5) meaningless. Powell finished with 31 for the Hall (11-4).

Lafayette 85, Loyola (Md) 70. Lafayette, we are here! To get beat. Loyola (4-12) goes to Pennsylvania and loses its 6th in a row.

Other Games
#4 Virginia 83, Boston College 56. Virginia stays unbeaten.
#7 Kansas77, #25 TCU 68. Dedric Lawson had 31 points and 14 rebounds as Kansas (13-2) avoided an upset.
#9 Virginia Tech 52, Georgia Tech 49. Phew, that was close!
Ole Miss 82, #11 Ole Auburn 67.
#13 Florida State 68, Miami 62. FSU (13-2) held off a late rally that brought MIami (8-7) from 10 down with under 3 minutes to play to within a bucket.
Rutgers 64, #16 Ohio State 61. Rutgers (8-6) scored the game's last 6 points to sneak out a win in Piscataway.

#21 Marquette 106, Creighton 104 (OT). Marquette's Sam Houser missed a three point attempt with the Eagles down 5 to Creighton and just 7 seconds left on the clock. But Joe Chartouny got the offensive rebound, missed, got his own rebound, and put it back in with 3 seconds to play. But Creighton threw the in-bounds pass out of bounds with 0.8 seconds left, giving Marquette a chance to inbound the ball from under the basket. They got the pass to an open Houser who made a catch and shoot three at the buzzer to force OT. After all that, the overtime was relatively uneventful. Marquette, which had never led in regulation, never trailed in the extra period. Oh, and Marcus Howard had 53 points for Marquette (13-3), including 14 in overtime. He also had 9 turnovers, but that was forgiven. I think the crowd got its money's worth.

Pitt 89, Louisville 86 (OT). Pitt blew a 12 point lead in the final 4:30 of regulation, but won in overtime, so maybe they just wanted to play more.
Syracuse 61, Clemson 53.

Calvin 74, Hope 70. College basketball's greatest rivalry. OK, it's really the second greatest, after Duke/UNC, but that's still pretty great. Others can correct me if I'm wrong, but as I understand it the two schools, 30 miles apart, represent the Reformed Church in America, and the Christian Reformed Church, the latter being a splinter of the former (think Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod). ("Heretic!" "Apostate!"). In the last 67 years, either Calvin and/or Hope has won and/or tied for the MIAA title 63 times; since 1980, they're 38 of 39. Since the league implemented a post season tournament 27 years ago, it has been won 24 times by either Calvin or Hope, with the two schools meeting in the finals 13 times. Calvin has won 4 national titles since the D-III tournament began in the mid-1970s. Hope has yet to win, although they've made multiple final fours. Hope is 6th all-time in D-III winning percentage, and Calvin is 9th. Hope has led D-3 attendance every year since 2003, with Calvin in the top 5 each of those years but one (when they were in 8th), and second to Hope three times. In the 10 years Between 1993 and 2002 (as far back as the NCAA website has D-3 attendance figures), Calvin led the nation in D3 attendance 7 times and Hope twice, and both teams were in the top 3 every year. In good seasons, Hope averages over 3000 per game, and almost certainly has a better game day atmosphere than any non-Big 10 school in the state.

Both schools are down this year: Hope came in at 8-5, Calvin at 6-7. Calvin never trailed, but it wasn't easy, and wasn't decided until Calvin made three free throws in the final 2 seconds. Attendance at Calvin's Van Noord Arena in Grand Rapids was 3287.

Here's a little documentary on the rivalry: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XNbDp7iC_88. If you've never been to a Hope/Calvin game, it's worth the trip.

Thursday, January 10

Horizon:
Detroit 101, Green Bay 83. A fun game, and probably the Titans' best so far this season. Still waiting on that 30 point game from Josh--he got stopped tonight at 29, with a rare miss on the front end of a 1&1 costing him 30. But Josh moves past Jon Goode and Tony Tolbert into 23rd spot on the Titans all-time scoring list. Antoine also got stopped at 29, but he zoomed past John Long and Ray McCallum to set a Titan record for points by a freshman. Juan Parilla made his Titan debut. Jordan Gorman scored his first Division 1 points. Boe Nguidjol made his first free throw of the year. Some nice minutes from Marquis Moore--but where was Hamrick? Is he sick? A double-double for Harrison Curry--his first and the team's first this year--with 11 points and 10 boards. Titans shot 61% from the floor, 45% from three, and forced 19 turnovers. And the Titans are in sole possession of first place in the Horizon. A good night.

Milwaukee 67, Oakland 64. Milwaukee jumped out to a early 15 point lead, but couldn't hold it. Twice Oakland took the lead by a point in the second half, but each time Milwaukee responded with a quick bucket, and DeAndre Abram hit a pair of free throws with 10 seconds left to put the Panthers up 3. Oakland freshman Braden Norris, the nation's #1 in three point shooting percentage, missed a three for overtime with 3 seconds left. Abram led Milwaukee (7-10, 2-2) with 18, while Jaevin Cumberland led OU (7-11, 3-2) with 19.

IUPUI 90, Cleveland State 74. Six Jags scored in double figures, led by Elijah Goss with 16 points and 13 rebounds. I'm a little surprised by how bad Cleveland State (5-13, 0-5) has been in conference play. The Jags are 10-7 overall, 2-2 in conference.

UIC 78, Youngstown State 63. UIC was in complete control, starting with a 14-0 run to open the game. Tarkus Ferguson had 23 and Godwin Boahen 21 for the Flames (8-9, 2-2). Jelani Simmons led visiting YSU (5-13, 1-4) with 18 points.

Other Games of Note
#2 Michigan 79, Illinois 69. Illinois (4-12) proved surprisingly stubborn, but the Wolverines (16-0) ground it out.

Connecticut 76, SMU 64.
Louisiana Tech 64, UAB 53.

Cincinnati 70, Tulsa 65 (OT). In an early matchup of AAC contenders, a three pointer by Cincy's Cane Broome--the real thing, none of them synthetic brooms will do in the clutch--swept through the net with 1 second remaining, forcing OT.

Wofford 72, UNC-Greensboro 43. These two teams lost a total of 6 games in non-conference play--all to teams ranked in the top 25--and both entered this game both unbeaten in early Southern Conference play. But the visiting Terriers (13-4) were dominant, led by Fletcher Magee--another good name--with 23 points. Magee, a senior, is a really good player. He's already got 2096 career points. Greensboro falls to 13-3.

Hampton 94, Charleston Southern 82. Jermaine Morrow, the nation's #6 scorer entering the evening, had 35 points and 6 assists for Hampton (6-8). But since it seems to be all-name night, I really included this game just so I can note that Charleston Southern's Phlandrous Fleming, Jr., who had 23 points and 12 rebounds. Phlandrous Fleming, Sr. named his son well.

Winthrop 90, Campbell 86. Campbell's Chris Clemons, the nation's leading scorer, had 34. Antoine's gonna have to step it up to catch him.
