Notable Results From Saturday, November 12

Mississippi State 80, South Alabama 65
The Bulldogs bounced back from Wednesday's loss to Akron -- without Renardo Sydney, who missed the game with a groin injury.

Providence 72, Fairleigh Dickinson 61
Notable only because I had as many points as the FDU bench on Saturday.

Evansville 80, Butler 77 (OT)
The Purple Aces take down the national runners-up for the second year in a row -- this time with a controversial finish.

Duke 96, Presbyterian 55
Coach K ties his mentor, Bobby Knight, atop the career wins list with 902.

South Florida 61, Vermont 59
A rough start for Doctor Slam's home state allegiance, as the Catamounts drop a heartbreaker to a Big East foe.

Northern Iowa 63, Old Dominion 46
With a pretty tough non-conference schedule, you can expect some surprising results for the Monarchs until the get Kent Bazemore back. Losing to UNI isn't anything to be ashamed of, but no way they get blown out at home with Bazemore.

Ohio Dominican 64, Southern Illinois 63
Remember when the Salukis were the class of the Missouri Valley and Chris Lowery was the hottest young coach around? It's been a rapid decline, and Saturday's home loss to a D2 opponent may be a new low. (It was not, however, the first loss to a non-D1 opponent by a D1 team this year; that honor goes to UMKC, which lost to Northwest Missouri State on Friday night.

Air Force 75, VMI 65
AFA wins the inaugural All-Military Classic championship game. In the consolation, The Citadel came from 20 down to beat Army. (Not sure where Navy fits in to this whole thing.)


  1. Nothing about Vanderbilt losing to Cleveland State at home?

  2. That hadn't happened when I wrote this post.
