    12/5 recap

    Washington vs. Gonzaga - Game Summary - December 5, 2018 - ESPN


    Geez! Gonzaga with another "close-call" game that they somehow managed to win. Let's see... Did anything else happen besides Washington falling short?

    Villanova over Temple 69-59
    Minnesota over Nebraska 85-78
    North Texas over Indiana State 80-69
    VCU over Texas 54-53
    Tulsa over Oklahoma State 74-71
    Southern Illinois over Saint Louis 61-56
    BYU over Utah State 95-80
    San Diego over San Diego State 73-61
    San Francisco over California 79-60
    TCU over SMU 67-59

    And finally, Ball State hands Loyola-Chicago another loss 75-69. I don't want to stir up any trouble, but maybe Loyola's golden run could be over...

    Saturday, December 15th (Part 1-Top 25 action)

    12/15 recap (Part 1- Top 25 action)

    Which "Hallmark Christmas Movie" do you guys prefer: "Miss Christmas" or "It's Christmas, Eve"? While you ponder that question, I'm gonna look at the Top 25 action from yesterday (and other neutral-site events):

    Crossroads Classic:
    Indiana over Butler 71-68

    Notre Dame over Purdue 88-80

    Boardwalk Classic:

    Virginia Tech over Washington 73-61
    Princeton over Iona 85-81
    NC State over Penn State 89-78
    Temple over Davidson 77-75 in OT
    (Wait... I didn't know this game was in Atlantic City, too! Well... alright.)

    Hy-Vee Classic:
    Iowa over Northern Iowa 77-54
    Iowa State over Drake 77-68
    Other big games:
    Tennessee over Memphis 102-92
    North Carolina over Gonzaga 103-90
    Nevada over South Dakota State 72-68

    Michigan over Western Michigan 70-62
    Auburn over UAB 75-71 in OT
    Texas Tech over Abilene Christian 82-48 (And with that, the Lubbock Memorial Coliseum closes it's doors.)
    Ohio State over Bucknell 73-71
    Buffalo over Southern Illinois 73-65
    Mississippi State over Cincinnati 70-59
    Arizona State over Georgia 76-74

    Villanova vs. Kansas - Game Summary - December 15, 2018 - ESPN And finally, Kansas wins YET ANOTHER close game to stay at #1. This time though, it was understandable as Kansas fought out Villanova.

    My dark side: "Good collection of hoops action! ...What happened to Syracuse?"
    Me: "We don't discuss that one."
