The Piedmont express keeps on truckin' with another win over a ranked opponent. The home team slowly expanded the lead in the first half, winning by 13 going into the break, and then maintained that lead throughout the second half. Piedmont players launched an impressive 31 3ptrs, making 10 of them in an attempt to bomb away on Rivier's zone defense. Piedmont and bunkerbuster had four players in double digits, stayed perfect on the season, and defended their #1 ranking. Rivier and jack_duck suffer their first loss of the season and slip just outside the top ten.

Seriously? Three nights in a row? I can't help it, it's the top two ranked teams and they're both undefeated, I can't pass this up. This could very well be the game of the non-conference season. Both teams are undefeated, highly ranked, picked to be #1 seeds by bullman, and picked as Final Four teams by rednu. It's the unstoppable force hosting the immovable spider monkeys and the odds-makers have it as an even pick. Game on.
