Games of the Night
Western Illinois 73, South Dakota 71: South Dakota was down by 12 at the half and never led during the game, but when Kansas State transfer Juevol Myles — who scored 15 of his 21 points in the second half — hit a three with seven seconds left, it tied the game at 71. But Ceola Clark, who led the Leathernecks with 20 points, answered at the other end with a teardrop in the lane as time expired. This was the first Summit League game for both teams.
Long Beach State 73, Loyola Marymount 70: Mike Caffey scored 15 points to lead four players in double figures as the 49ers used a late, 8-0 run to take a 67-62 lead.
No. 7 Florida 82, Marquette 49: Patric Young came off the bench. Kenny Boynton didn’t score until there were 16 minutes left in the game. And yet, the Gators were still able to utterly embarrass the Golden Eagles. This game was played in Gainesville, which definitely played a role in this outcome, but the bottom line is that as good as Florida looked, Marquette looked that bad. They didn’t move the ball offensively, they weren’t able to get penetration from the perimeter, and their big men were utterly overwhelmed by the trio of Young, Erik Muprhy and Will Yeguete.
Also worth noting, talented freshman Michael Frazier scored 17 points and finished by hitting 5-8 from three, which will hopefully get him going this season.
Notre Dame 64, No. 8 Kentucky 50: Kentucky simply wasn’t ready for what they ran into in Purcell Pavilion on Thursday night. The talented youngsters got a crash course on what life is like on the road in college basketball. Notre Dame was more experienced, more disciplined, and, as of right now, just flat out better than the Wildcats. And it showed.
Memphis 93, UT-Martin 65: Five days after being embarrassed in the Battle 4 Atlantis tournament, three days after the Athletic Director shut down media access to the team and one day after Tarik Black apparently walked out of a “boot camp” practice, Memphis finally played like the team everyone expected them to be coming into the season. Joe Jackson, who was benched out in the Bahamas, finished with 13 points, eight assists and just a single turnover. Shaq Goodwin had 17 points and 12 boards.
Tyreek Duren and Ramon Galloway, La Salle: Duren and Galloway finished with a combined 37 points on 13-20 shooting as the Explorers picked up a solid win at Rider.
D’Angelo Harrison, St. John’s: The Johnnies beat South Carolina by 24 points in the SEC/Big East Challenge, and Harrison led the way. He had 26 points, and is now averaging 21.9 points.
TJ Price, Western Kentucky: Price scored 30 points in WKU’s 65-54 win over Louisiana-Monroe.
Arsalan Kazemi, Oregon: Kazemi’s addition to the Ducks was thought to be a difference maker, giving Oregon a chance to compete in the Pac-12. He had eight points and seven boards in the win over UNLV and 15 boards in a close loss to Cincinnati. In a win over UT-San Antonio tonight, Kazemi had 20 points on 8-9 shooting, adding six boards, four assists, five steals and three blocks.
Marquette: Vander Blue was 8-14 from the floor and scored 20 points. No one else had as many as six points, and the rest of the team finished with 13 field goals and 29 points. Marquette lost 82-49 to No. 7 Florida.
Alex Poythress and Archie Goodwin: The two talented freshmen are supposed to be the ones that carry this Kentucky team. Poythress had two points in 23 minutes and Goodwin had two points on 1-7 shooting (but five assists). That won’t cut it.
Seton Hall’s late-game execution: Fuquan Edwin hit a three-pointer with 3:46 left in the game, which gave Seton Hall a 64-63 lead and erased a five point deficit. Seton Hall’s next five possessions? All turnovers. The Pirates finished with 27 in the game. And lost to LSU, 72-67.
