Notable Results From December 5, 2011

Detroit 69, St. John's 63
The Titans, missing four contributors due to injuries and suspensions, knock off the Red Storm, who were without their head coach. (Steve Lavin's recovery from prostate cancer has dictated that he take occasional games off.) Detroit is now 1-0 on the newly-christened Dick Vitale Court at Calihan Hall. Vitale went 78-30 in four seasons as Detroit's head coach.

Wisconsin-Milwaukee 87, DePaul 76
Like Detroit over St. John's, this game marked a victory for the Horizon over the Big East, with this one coming on the road. Even with two-time reigning national runner-up Butler struggling to start the season, the Horizon is looking mighty tough.

Austin Peay 86, Arkansas State 82 (Overtime)
The Governors, picked by most to win the Ohio Valley, get their first win of the season -- barely -- in ten tries over a fairly mediocre Arkansas State club. Mediocre may be generous -- the Red Wolves scored just 27 points in a loss to Louisville earlier this season.
