Weekend NCAA Hoops Notes

  • Miami's Jack McClinton was off all day but hit three 3-pointers in the final minutes against Clemson. Miami came from behind to win 75-72.
  • Good home win for Alex Galindo and Florida International at home today against New Orleans. They needed this one.
  • ACC games continue to be very high-scoring as Georgia Tech beats Virginia 92-82 and Duke defeats Maryland 93-84.
  • I said it before and I'll say it again. Bobby Gonzalez is doing a GREAT job at Seton Hall. They defeat Cincy at home today 64-61.
  • Big home wins for Alabama, Arizona, Iowa, Kansas State, Kentucky, Memphis,  and VCU.
  • Biggest upset was Rutgers 77-64 over Pittsburgh. 
  • Watch out for USC.
  • Georgetown had a great win in West Virginia 58-57. Patrick Ewing Jr., who looks a lot like his father, blocked a layup for the win. Bob Huggins wanted a goaltending call from the refs. 
  • Jesse Sapp hit the game-winning 3-pointer to give the Hoyas the lead with a few seconds left before Ewing Jr's heroics.
  • Purdue could be a Big 10 contender after a big win over Wisconsin 60-56.
  • St.Louis, Stanford, and Virginia Tech had big road wins.
  • Baylor lost to Oklahoma after their big win on Wednesday in the five overtime thriller. Who knew Blake Griffin would come back so early for the Sooners?
  • Julio Anthony and Tyler Laser helped Eastern Illinois defeat Morehead State in overtime 66-65. BIG win for EIU.
  • Connecticut upset Indiana on the road. Jim Calhoun suspended two of his players for the game but they still won.
  • LSU lost again as they lose to Arkansas at home. LSU is having a real tough year.
