Top 25 Games

  • #3 Kansas 99, UMKC 52: “The first few minutes of the game set the tone of this one.  Kansas hopped out to a 15-0 lead and continued to push the Roos all over the court the rest of the first half.  Kansas carried on through the game winning 99-52.” (Rock Chalk Talk)

Other Games of Interest

  • Tennessee 104, Memphis 84: “Memphis is Memphis.  You can count on them to have a ton of talent and freakish athleticism – some of the blocked shots and dunks the Tigers had tonight were SportsCenter-worthy. Unfortunately, when you get blown out by 20, they usually don’t show your stuff. Because all of our favorite things about Memphis Basketball were also on display tonight: poor free throw shooting (53.8%), no offensive continuity, and absolutely no defense under any circumstances.” (Rocky Top Talk)
  • Louisville 73, Seton Hall 54: The Cardinals dominated the Pirates in a game that wasn’t as close as the final score indicates and the final score wasn’t that close. (Card Chronicle)

Pre-Game Analysis

  • Washington Huskies vs. Oregon Ducks: “Oregon does not figure to much competition for the Huskies, especially with this game being played at home. The Ducks lack size in the post, only 6-8 Jeremy Jacob sees significant playing time for Altman. Matthew Bryan-Amaning should have a good day both in the scoring and rebounding columns. Once the Huskies can establish a post presence early in the game, their perimeter game will open up and this will likely be another rout.” (Seatown Sports)

  1. Harvard’s win over BC might deserve a mention. Tommy Amaker has got to be back in a major conference soon, no?
