Game of the Night
La Salle 69, No. 19 VCU 61: Want to make someone feel unwelcome in the A-10? Let them play La Salle. The Explorers knocked off No. 9 Butler in Philly a few days ago, and then traveled to Richmond and laid the hurt on No. 19 VCU as well. John Giannini played a four-guard lineup to counter the Rams, and got a game-high 31 from Ramon Galloway to reinforce La Salle’s growing tournament resume. Juvonte Reddic and Treveon Graham each had a double-double, but it wasn’t enough to keep VCU from falling victim to the A-10’s old school reps.
No. 23 Ole Miss 63, Auburn 61: So what, you’re saying. A ranked team beat an unranked team. If you’ve been watching any hoops at all this past week or two, you know just how hard that is. Ole Miss is a relative newcomer to the polls as well, so earning a road win in a tight game is good stuff. The Rebel Black Bears got their usual good night out of Marshall Henderson, who had 15, and guards Jarvis Summers and Ladarius White combined for 31 to keep Ole Miss unbeaten in SEC play.
San Diego State 55, N0. 15 New Mexico 34: And the Mountain West rolls on. What else can you say? The league is like a microcosm of DI as a whole, where no ranking is safe, and parity reigns supreme. The Aztecs got a great night from J.J. O’Brien, who posted 12 points, 10 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 steal and 2 blocks in the nominal upset.
No. 18 N.C State 91, North Carolina 83: The Wolfpack used a balanced scoring attack to prove that the balance of power has, indeed shifted in the Triangle.
No. 16 Oregon 81, Washington 76: This was a game of who could mess up least, apparently. The Ducks stayed unbeaten in Pac-12 play, but they didn’t do it in a pretty way. The two teams combined to throw away 44 turnovers.
I can’t even type turnover in my notes before another turnover happens.

Christian Standhardinger, Hawaii: The Nebraska transfer had 31 points, 16 rebounds, 1 steal and 2 blocked shots in a 78-73 Hawaii win at UCSB.
Several teams and individuals struggled tonight, but can we really put them in the same boat with Northern Illinois? The team that scored all of four first-half points in a 42-25 loss to Eastern Michigan? I think not.
And then we found out that it was even worse than we had originally thought. NIU broke their own record, in fact.

@nburzychAh, was looking at record book from before this season. Didn’t have this year’s results. Stand corrected. That’s brutal.
