Notable Results From Friday, November 18

Mississippi State 67, Arizona 57
After an early loss to Akron, the Bulldogs take two at Madison Square Garden to be the surprise winners of the 2K Sports Classic.

Northwestern 69, Tulsa 65
This is a very good win for the Wildcats in the Charleston Classic semis. Last year was supposed to be the year for them. Could this be it? They have to find a way to replace Juice Thompson. Drew Crawford -- son of NBA official Danny -- had 28 points in this one and stepped as the primary candidate to do so.

Alabama 70, Wichita State 60
Next up for Northwestern is the Tide, which got 26 points and eight rebounds from Tony Mitchell in this one.

New Mexico 76, Arizona State 71
The Lobos rebound from a loss to New Mexico State earlier in the week.

Houston 87, Arkansas 78
The loss may be the least of Mike Anderson's worries -- the Razorbacks played without Marshawn Powell, their leading scorer and rebounder and main post presence, who suffered a "severe knee injury" in practice on Thursday.

Kennesaw State 65, Chattanooga 59
A home loss for the Mocs, the popular choice to win the Southern Conference's North division. KSU's Markeith Cummings, an Atlantic Sun player of the year candidate, scored 21 points in his return from a one-game suspension for conduct detrimental to the team.

Cleveland State 67, St. Bonaventure 64
The Bonnies have a good team this year, and so Trevon Harmon's game-winning three with three seconds left gives Cleveland State its second eye-catching win of the season. The Vikings upset Vanderbilt in their season opener.

Maryland 78, Colorado 71
Against Alabama in the first round of the Puerto-Rico Tip-Off Classic, Maryland scored just 42 points. Terrell Stoglin got 32 himself in this consolation bracket win.

Norfolk State 61, Drexel 56
A surprising loss in the Paradise Jam for a the preseason CAA favorites.

Duke 82, Davidson 69
The Blue Devils actually trailed by one at halftime before blowing this one open with a 25-4 run early in the second half.

Georgia Tech 73, VCU 60
The Jackets rally from 13 down for a Charleston Classic consolation win behind 19 points from Glen Rice Jr., back from a three-game suspension.

Holy Cross 86, Boston College 64
This, apparently, is why everyone has BC at the bottom of the ACC this year.

Iona 94, Western Michigan 88
Scott Machado had 17 points and 15 assists in the Puerto Rico Tip-Off Classic consolation round.

Valparaiso 62, Akron 59
Valpo scored the game's final eight points to knock off the Zips, who had made headlines earlier with their victory over Mississippi State.
