Game of the Night: No. 10 Oregon 70, Utah 68 (OT)
Damyean Dotson’s steal and dunk with sixth tenths of a second was the difference as Oregon remained undefeated in the Pac-12 opener for both. But even in defeat Utah showed more signs of progress, with Larry Krystkowiak’s team giving the Ducks all they wanted and then some. Next up for Oregon is a game at No. 20 Colorado on Sunday, and Utah will host Oregon State on Saturday.
A Michigan squad without Mitch McGary represented an opportunity for Minnesota, but thanks to Nik Stauskas the Golden Gophers were unable to take advantage. Stauskas led the Wolverines with 12 points, seven assists and two steals, and Michigan won despite losing Glenn Robinson III to injury early in the second half.
One of the better rivalries around was played on Thursday night but it wasn’t all that close as the Bulldogs controlled play against the Gaels in Spokane. Of note for Gonzaga was the performance of Louisville transfer Angel Nunez, who accounted for 13 points and seven rebounds. That could be a key development moving forward for the Zags, who are without Gary Bell Jr. and have a center in Sam Dower who isn’t playing at full strength.
3) Washington 76, Arizona State 65
To be fair this game wasn’t as close as the margin would indicate, with Lorenzo Romar’s Huskies taking control of the game in the latter stages of the first half and leading by as much as 21. C.J. Wilcox scored 17 points, but the biggest surprise was the fact that Washington scored 42 of its 76 points in the paint.
1) Brendan Lane (Pepperdine)
The UCLA transfer racked up 26 points (10-for-15 FG) and 17 rebounds in Pepperdine’s 70-61 win at Santa Clara. Marty Wilson’s Waves are 3-0 in WCC play.
2) Glenn Cosey (Eastern Kentucky)
Cosey caught fire from deep in the Colonels’ 100-81 win at Eastern Illinois, hitting ten of 12 from distance and scoring 34 points to go along with six assists.
3) Akeem Richmond (East Carolina)
Cosey wasn’t the only player to make ten three-pointers, with Richmond doing so on 17 attempts in the Pirates’ 79-71 win at Campbell. Richmond scored 37 points and grabbed five rebounds. (Note: UC Davis’ Ryan Sypkens hit ten in a win over Simpson University)
1) Washington State
The Cougars scored just seven points in the first half of their 60-25 loss at No. 1 Arizona. The Wildcats are a good defensive team, but even with two starters (DaVonte Lacy and Dexter Kernich-Drew) out there’s no way the Cougars should shoot 9-for-45 from the field.
The Wildcats shot 6-for-23 and scored 14 points in the first half of their 76-49 loss to No. 4 Wisconsin.
3) Saint Mary’s
The Gaels shot 31.9% from the field and 1-for-12 from beyond the arc in their 73-51 loss at No. 24 Gonzaga.
- Tyrone Wallace scored 20 points and Justin Cobbs added 18 and some big plays late as California won 69-62 at Stanford.
- Aaseem Dixon scored 23 points to lead Northern Arizona to a 73-65 win at Montana, ending the Grizzlies’ 31-game win streak in Big Sky home games.
- It was a bit of a struggle but Colorado beat Oregon State, 64-58, with Josh Scott accounting for 13 points, ten rebounds and three blocked shots.
- Cole Dickerson scored 20 points and grabbed eight rebounds as San Francisco moved to 2-1 in the WCC with a 75-61 win over Loyola Marymount.
- Sam Houston State beat Northwestern State 107-104 in double overtime, with Jabari Peters scoring nine of his 21 points in the second extra session.
- Cleanthony Early led three players in double figures with 23 points as No. 8 Wichita State moved to 14-0 with an 82-67 win at Southern Illinois.
- Bryon Allen scored 24 points and Patrick Holloway added 18 off the bench in George Mason’s 80-77 win over Penn.
- Tim Kempton scored 25 points and grabbed 13 rebounds in Lehigh’s 88-81 double overtime win at Colgate.
- George Beamon tallied 28 points and ten rebounds in Manhattan’s 74-62 win at Saint Peter’s, the Jaspers’ ninth win away from home this season.
