Devonte Upson was aptly named. The Southeastern Louisiana junior forward/center gets up. Pretty evident by this vicious one-handed alley-oop he had against Nicholls State on Saturday evening.

Upson, the JuCo transfer, ended with a season-high 16 points and added nine rebounds, but the Lions fell to the Colonels 64-61 as Dantrell Thomas connected on two free throws with five seconds left to pull off the victory.

Late Night Snacks: Seven games and tons of finals

To call a slow night in college basketball would be an understatement. Seven games, one featuring a Top 25 team, and that was a blowout. With this being finals week for so many schools around the country, expect more of it. For now, it’s late night snacks.

Game of the Night

Georgetown 89, Longwood 53 – Georgetown needed something to break it’s offensive funk and they got it. Otto Porter went for 22 points and Markel Starks went for 17 as the team shot 53-percent from the field overall.


Otto Porter, Georgetown – Went for 22 points and seven assists in a win that the Hoyas needed, if nothing else, just for confidence.

Erick Greene, Virginia Tech – Went for 23 points, five assists and four rebounds as the Hokies beat down winless Mississippi Valley State 70-49.

Tilman Dunbar, Navy – On the weekend of the Army/Navy football game, got to give some love to the hardcourt Midshipmen. Finished with a double-double with 13 points and 10 assists in a 69-59 win over Bryant.


Eastern Washington’s three-point shooting – In a 75-69 loss to Seattle U., the Eagles could’ve just used two more threes for the win. They shot 6-for-27 from three-point range. Showing that volume doesn’t equal results.

Stuffing the stat sheet

Jayon James, Louisiana-Monroe – Took care of business in a victory over Southeastern Louisiana with 10 points 12 rebounds and seven assists in the 68-61 victory.

Fanbase that can take a breath

Georgetown – Everyone was wondering what exactly was wrong with the Hoyas after games that they won in the 30s and 40s offensively. Well, all they needed was a visit from Longwood. Shot 53-percent from the field. Otto Porter went for 22. Can’t ask for more.

Fanbase that can take a seat

None, again – It’s finals week. Everyone is already on edge enough as it is. No one did anything no one expected tonight.

Study up, everyone.
