    Houston took down LSU last night.

    Temple struggled with Umass and won by 2. Shizz Alston has 3 30pt games so far this season including last night.

    Wichita St had trouble with Jacksonville at home last night.

      Houston looks like the real deal. They were down 12 early in the second half and just dominated the last 10 minutes. We need some conference cred so I was rooting for them. The announcers said Houston will be favored in ALL of their remaining games! Hmmm!

        Conference time.

        UCF beat Temple last night.

        UConn lost on the road to USF. I watched some of the USF game and they played pretty well in a come from behind win. They're tall and have a good PG LaQuincy Rideau that transferred in from Gardner Webb.

          UConn have no inside game. It’s all on Adams, Vital & Gilbert.

          The Bulls shot over 30 FT in the second half.

            UConn looked in control when I turned the game off. USF couldn't control Jalen Adams and he was on fire in the first half. They must have adjusted at half time. Brian Gregory has a nice team he's putting together in USF. They are starting a freshman and 3 sophomores and a junior. Looks like they could be good as they mature.

              Memphis Beat WSU last night.

              I meant to pass this on before the game. The Memphis Commerical-Appeal interviewed Gregg Marshall and asked him what his team's strength was coming into the game.

              Marshall's replay was "I don't think we have one to be honest"

              Went about that way in the game too.



              SMU and Tulane are playing tonight if you're looking for a game to watch.

                  SMU took a 10-pt halftime lead & basically kept it for a 74-65 win at Tulane. Okay, but not particularly impressive. The Mustangs sren’t wahat they were two year sgo.

                      And, then there were two. Temple survived a late flurry by Houston and hung on for a 73-69 home win, handing the Cougars their first loss. To say Kelvin Sampson was pleased with the officiating would be an extreme distortion.

                      The game ended on a bang-bang charge as Houston was laying it in at 0:00.6, which would've tied it. A later foul led to two FT's to make the difference.

                      Down In Florida, the Bulls manhandled hapless Tulane, 67-48.

                        Further, keep an eye on the very observant officiating team of Bryon Jarrett, John Gaffney and Anthony Jordan. They T'ed-up Sampson in the second half for taking off his tie - something he's probably done in 99 percent of the games he's coached.

                          Temple held a 14-point halftime lead over USF in Philly, but the Bulls wiped that out to take the lead early in the second. It went back and forth, and is now headed to OT at 68-all. The Owls have committed over 20 TO's. The Bulls can't make a FT.

                            The Owls built an early 6-point lead in OT, then held on for an 82-80 win over the Bulls, who shot 10/24 from the line. The two teams combined for 40+ turnovers.

                              UCF hosted ECU and nearly blew a 21-point lead, eventually pulling back out to a 76-63 win. Tacko Fall, who is a bricklayer when he's not dunking, went 2-for-10 from the line. He's shooting 28% on the season.

                              Jayden Gardner, the Pirates' frosh sensation, hit for 35 points and 20 rebounds.

                                Memphis went down to NOLA to take on the moribund Green Wave in front of perhaps 300 Spartan souls. The Tigers built a 17-point lead, then nearly frittered the entire thing away, with Tulane cutting the deficit to 2 in the final 20 seconds. The Wave got off a couple shots, then had to foul and succumbed, 83-79.

                                The Tigers seem to play without regard to any team concepts on offense. Lots of one-on-one, with drives for layups or pull-ups. It almost bit them tonight.
