Notable Results From Thursday, November 17

Connecticut 80, Maine 60
The defending national champs open the second half with a 23-2 run, holding the Black Bears without a field goal for more than ten minutes, to save a rather lackluster performance.

Campbell 94, North Carolina A&T 66
You expect a big second half run when a team like UConn is up against a mid-major opponent: The talent disparity is just too great. Campbell's 51-24 second half in this one is a bit more surprising.

Michigan 59, Western Illinois 55
The revitalized Wolverines, headed to Maui on Monday, get a scare.

Northwestern 88, LSU 82
John Shurna gets a career-high 37 in a comeback win in the Charleston Classic. I watched a few minutes of this one. LSU has a couple of freshman -- Anthony Hickey and Johnny O'Bryant -- worth keeping an eye on.

Oregon 73, Eastern Washington 65
The Ducks had to rally late against a Big Sky foe.

Penn 78, Rider 72 (OT)
The Quakers continue the Ivy League's impressive early performance with an overtime victory on the road against a MAAC contender.

San Diego State 56, USC 54
Xavier Thames' layup with 1.8 seconds left sinks my law school. Hopefully my bar results (revealed this evening) go better.

West Virginia 97, Alcorn State 62
Kevin Jones scores a career-high 29 points on the night he sets the school's career offensive rebounding record.

Northwestern State 67, Alabama State 60
An early barometer of the relative strength of less-heralded conferences. Alabama State is the reigning SWAC champion with four starters back, and Northwestern State is expected to challenge for the top of the Southland's East division.
