Emory 49 #1 Millsaps 68
Emory came out ready to play last night and ran out to an early 12 point lead over the top ranked team. Not surprisingly, Millsaps recovered and rallied back to even the score and then take a 3 point lead at the break. The game turned in the second half when Emory made an interesting tactical decision and refused to score any more points for the first eight minutes of the second half, mistakenly believing that 26 points was more than enough. By they time they realized that Millsaps was being super rude and ignoring the no-scoring vow, it was too late and Millsaps cruised to the victory. Millsaps and brianxavier were led by Christopher Perry's 28 points off the bench and maintained their spot at the top of the rankings. Emory learned a valuable lesson about the dangers of trusting the opposition.

Juniata showed off their blowout skills once again covering the spread against #4 Elizabethtown 50-115, Wisconsin Stout cut the spread in half at #12 Wisconsin Superior 61-85, and Keuka did the same against #5 Vassar 64-86.
#24 Chapman (18-2)(coachuk) at #15 Willamette (17-3)(bullman17)
Chapman looks to avenge an earlier home loss to Willamette, a win here would move them back into a tie for first place for the division lead. On the other hand, a Willamette victory would put them two games clear in the division and in position for a conference title.
