Notable Results From Monday, November 21

Kansas 67, Georgetown 63
This was a good game; I just didn't the juice to do a full write-up when the final horn sounded a bit after 11 p.m. Pacific. Both teams defended well, both are still looking for a consistent third offensive option. Ultimately, I think the #14 ranking for Kansas is a bit high, but the Hoyas played at their level all night.

Vanderbilt 64, Oregon State 62
Brad Tinsley hit a 15-footer with 4.5 seconds left to give the Commodores the Legends Classic championship over the resilient Beavers. Jeffery Taylor held Jared Cunningham to just nine points after Cunningham had scored 35 and 37 points in his last two outings. Vanderbilt looked ready to break open a tied game at halftime, going on 10-1 run to start the second, but even without Cunningham hitting, Oregon State hung tough.

North Carolina State 77, Texas 74
The Longhorns led by 13 with 8:25 to go, when J'Covan Brown picked up his fourth foul, then got hit with a tech for arguing for his fifth. The Wolfpack outscored Texas 25-9 the rest of the way to take third place in the Legends Classic.

Marquette 59, Norfolk State 57
The Golden Eagles squeak by in the Paradise Jam championship game. With wins over Drexel and TCU and then this narrow loss, the Spartans leave the Virgin Islands a seeming contender in the MEAC.

George Washington 86, Detroit 73
Detroit hasn't proven itself yet, but they're expected to challenge for the Horizon title. That makes this a nice win for a GW team that hasn't been too relevant lately.

Massachusetts 82, Boston College 46
Looks like BC really sucks this year. Coming off an 18-point loss at Holy Cross, the Eagles get blown out at home by a UMass team that was picked to finish 12th out of 14 teams in the Atlantic 10 in the preseason coaches/media poll.
