Rejuvenations and slow-downs

The “grind it out” part of the season is upon us, and some teams that began strong are now struggling. Others – many programs of which have been rejuvenated this year – are still going strong. And so the results today are interesting…….

Miami, Ohio’s 66-62 decision over Bowling Green puts them at a turnaround 14-8.
