About last night:

BC 59, Clemson 57: I didnít think the young Eagles had it in them. Clemson has to question itself. Itís strange to beat a good Florida State team by 20 then lose to BC. Fans are split on BC, some see it as hopeless. The optimistic see the possibilities of these young players getting better and the future wining.
Duke 61, Virginia 58: I downplayed Virginiaís record recently and then they play a gusty, tough game against Duke at Cameron Indoor. The Cavs had plenty of chances late to take this game and came up short. Nice effort but theyíre not good enough. I think this score reflects on Dukeís shortcomings. Somethingís missing for Coach Kís group.
Minnesota 77, Indiana 74: The Hoosiers canít afford to lose at home to an inferior opponent. Never got any traction in this one.
Wisconsin 67, Purdue 62: The Badgers finally woke up and rode three-point shooting (9 of 20) to pull off the upset. Purdue had won 26 straight at home.
Saint Maryís 83, Gonzaga 62: What a beating! All-Sully guard Matthew Dellavedova was a tour de force with 26 points and six assists.
Manhattan 75, Iona 72: The Gaels are really talented but they are capable of clunkers like this home loss to a middling MAAC team after blowing a 17-point lead.
Murray State 66, Jacksonville State 55: The Racers win their 17th straight playing without a key player, Ivan Aska, their leading rebounder. He has a broken hand.
Drexel 60, George Mason 53: First CAA loss for the Cinderellas.
New Mexico State 80, Utah State 60: Another example of the down year the Aggies are having.
UC Riverside 79, Cal Santa Barbara 70 in OT: This is a big upset in the Big West.
UNC Greensboro 73, College of Charleston 66: Bad home lose for C of C; Greensboro had lost 11 in a row before this.
