Where to start when there’s 109 games in a day?
There were no upsets in the top 25, for once, but there were some notable milestones reached:
Other hot starts belong to:
San Diego State, who is at 4-0 in the Mountain West Conference after grabbing their tenth consecutive win today.
Florida Gulf Coast University, who is at 9-0 in the Atlantic Sun Conference.
American University, now 5-0 in the Patriot League.
Sacred Heart, 7-0 in the Northeast Conference.
Florida A&M, at 6-0 in the MEAC.
Wichita State, which is 7-0 in MVC play.
Idaho State, at 6-0 in the Big Sky Conference.
Middle Tennessee, 8-0 in the Sun Belt Conference.
McNeese State is 5-0 in the Southland Conference.
Marist is 8-0 in MAAC.
Eastern Illinois is 5-0 in the OVC.
High Point is 6-0 in the Big South.
Let’s give it up for the smaller schools.
And Cal State Northridge Coach Jason Flowers was one of my top mid-major coaches to watch last month. The Matadors are getting better at finishing games, and are tops in the Big West Conference at the moment. But they couldn’t quite close out in double overtime today, losing to UC Santa Barbara.
It seems to be an intense day of play on both the women’s and men’s side of the basketball world. I went to the Oregon State at USC game today, which went to overtime. My story should be posted tomorrow morning on hoopfeed.com.
