It’s brutal out there

What a season so far, and it’s only halftime. There don’t seem to be too many “nights off” in any conference – especially the Pac-12. There’s just constant disruption.


Moments ago, #12 Oregon State upended #11 Stanford, 58-50. The Beavers came from behind and made strong runs at the end to snap a 29-game losing streak against the Cardinal that went back 15 years.

#6 Baylor 80, #4 Texas 67. It was the first loss of the season for the Longhorns.

Arkansas 64, #2 Missouri 52.

Washington 69, #25 USC 60.

Oregon 69, Cal 59. Duck forward Jillian Alleyne became the Pac-12 all-time leading rebounder in the process. The old mark belonged to former Cardinal Chiney Ogwumike.

Close to being upsets:

#2 South Carolina escaped #15 Texas A&M with a free throw, 59-58.

#17 UCLA survived Washington State, 75-73.

#23 Louisville edged NC State, 92-90.

Other eyebrow-raising results: (The number of close games today was just incredible)

South Dakota beat South Dakota State at their house for the first time since 1990, 63-58.

Texas Tech slipped by Iowa State in overtime, 69-66.

Michigan hung on to defeat Penn State at their house for the first time since 2001, 91-87.

Minnesota clawed by Indiana, 78-76.

All scores.

I’m so excited!!!

And I can’t WAIT for the NCAA Tournament!!!
