Tuesday Recap

Florida St.-Wake Forest
The Seminoles overcame their collapse on Sunday against UNC to give the Deacons another bad loss, this one at home.

Georgetown-Notre Dame
The Hoyas avoided a letdown and the refs to survive at Notre Dame in double overtime.

The Zips suffered their first loss of MAC play to the Bobcats who might still be in play for an at-large.

Kent St.-Miami (OH)
Kent St. took advantage of Akron’s first loss to move into first place alone in the MAC.

Creighton-Southern Illinois
Southern Illinois moved back into solo first place in the MVC and beefed up their resume with this win.

Miami Fl.-Virginia
The Cavs move to 4-2 in the ACC by beating the suddenly cold Hurricanes. In the unlikely event that they win at Duke on Saturday, Virginia would probably move into the bracket.

The Hawkeyes recovered from Michigan State’s 30-point drubbing by never trailing in this game. To go along with the absence of DJ White, Indiana was also without Marshall Strickland who is their 3rd leading scorer.

Coastal Carolina-Winthrop
Winthrop was upset at home by Buzz Peterson’s Chanticleers. With the loss, the Eagles move into a first place tie with Birmingham Southern a team that they beat by 41 at home. Birmingham however has 4 seniors and 2 juniors among their top 6 players and still gets Winthrop at their place this year.

The Jaspers were crushed by Rider who is in last place in the MAAC. With the loss the Jaspers fall a game out of first place as Iona won their game and out of any consideration for an at-large bid.
