    12/21 recap

    I'll curse out BYU in football later on, but for now here are the results from a pretty exciting Friday:

    LSU over Furman 75-57 (Aw... Furman's happy run is over. At least for now...)
    Marquette over Buffalo 103-85 (Great job, Marquette! Now Syracuse fans are feeling even WORSE about their loss to the Bulls.)
    Bryant over Dartmouth 68-67
    Binghamton over LIU-Brooklyn 68-67
    Kent State over Oregon State 66-63 (Kent State's not a bad team, so there's no "Whoopsie" here for Oregon State)
    Butler over UC-Irvine 71-54
    Louisville over Robert Morris 73-59 (The Cardinals trailed at halftime here?! Maybe they were too busy watching the new "Ridiculousness".)
    Baylor over Oregon 57-47
    Charleston over Coastal Carolina 73-71
    La Salle over Alabama A&M 80-57 (Well... both La Salle and A&M were winless entering this contest, so I guess something had to give.)
    Providence over Texas 71-65
    Oklahoma over Northwestern 76-69 in OT

    Alabama over Penn State 73-64
    UT-Arlington over Cal Poly 75-70 in OT

    12/22 recap (Part 2: Outside the rankings)

    Hmm... There wasn't much in ways of quantity in the Top 25. Oh well, let's see life outside of the AP Poll:

    Diamond Head Classic:
    Indiana State upsets Colorado 72-67
    UNLV over Hawaii 73-59; will meet Indiana State in semis
    Bucknell over Rhode Island 64-62 (Whoopsie)
    TCU over Charlotte 82-57; will meet Bucknell in semis

    Continental Tire Las Vegas Classic:

    Other big games:
    Georgia over Georgia Tech 70-59
    Georgetown over Little Rock 102-94 in OT
    West Virginia over Jacksonville State 74-72
    Villanova over UConn 81-58
    Alabama A&M over Tulane 67-59 (Finally, Alabama A&M is on the board! ...Wait. Aren't there any winless teams left?)
    Central Connecticut State over Maine 93-90 in 2-OT's
    Duquesne over Eastern Kentucky 85-84 in OT
    Clemson over South Carolina 78-68
    Arkansas over Texas State 73-70
    UNC-Greensboro over Samford 83-75
    Milwaukee over Western Michigan 67-66
    Boston College over DePaul 65-62
    VCU over Wichita State 70-54
    Saint Joseph's over Loyola-Chicago 45-42
    San Francisco over Stanford 74-65
    UC-Riverside over Loyola-Marymount 60-53 (Whoopsie)
    Seton Hall over Maryland 78-74
    Wildcat Classic:
    Kansas State over Vanderbilt 69-58
    Arizona over UC-Davis 70-68
    Montana over South Dakota State 85-74 (The longest active home-court winning streak [26] is now over.)

    That's right, folks. Little Loyola-Marymount just suffered a "Whoopsie" loss that'll hurt their NCAA chances this season. What has this world come to?

    Louisville couldn't even win this game when they were cheating and getting away with it.

    You think they have a chance now?
