Odd night in hoops

Whoa now:

Marquette upset #22 Oregon State, 74-73.

What a dominating performance by the Oregon Ducks, from buzzer to buzzer. They took down #24 Michigan State, 88-55.



#1 Notre Dame soundly defeated Lafayette, 91-51, in a delayed effort. The game was at Campbell Center in Houston when the power went out in the second quarter. After waiting for over an hour, the contest was moved to nearby Rice University without fans, as security couldn’t be guaranteed.

I’ve not heard of such a scenario before.

Record night:

#15 Washington’s 105-53 rout of Idaho saw not only Kelsey Plum score 27 points (her usual average), but Chantel Osahor got the first triple-double in school history for the Huskies.

North Texas 62, Arizona 58…..it was the first loss of the season for the Wildcats.

Duke 92, Old Dominion 64

Buffalo 71, Duquesne 69

Vanderbilt 75, Robert Morris 59
