0 Comments

No. 6 Pitt 78, No. 4 UConn 63: See here.

Penn State 69, Indiana 60: In the Big East opener for both teams, the Nittany Lions got 23 points from Jeff Brooks and 19 from Talor Battle as they went into Assembly Hall and knocked off the Hoosiers. This is not a good sign for an Indiana program that is trying to rebuild. Just six days ago, the Nittany Lions lost by 10 at home to Maine.

No. 20 Louisville 104, Morgan State 74: The Cardinals got 31 points from Preston Knowles and 25 out of Kyle Kuric, but that wasn’t the most impressive thing about last night. Louisville shot a ridiculous 17-23 from three. This coming just days after the Cards went 16-30 from deep against Western Kentucky. All of this happened to coincide with Mike Marra, who leads Louisville in three point attempts but is shooting 27%, getting injured.

No. 10 Missouri 97, Northern Illinois 61: Holy blowout. Mizzou was up 57-17 at the break, and the Tiger’s held Xavier Silas, the NCAA’s second leading scorer coming in, to just eight points on 2-12 shooting.

Other Notable Scores:

  • No. 2 Ohio State 100, UT-Martin 40
  • LSU 62, Southern 41
  • Clemson 76, Delaware State 41
