I finished scheduling all of Wooster's non-conference games for next season. Have you gotten all yours done?
#18 Kenyon 50 #6 Allegheny 61
Kenyon missed a shot with five seconds left and doomed them to fulfill coach jsajsa's fears of a double digit loss. Sadly, that might lead to another day of soft crying in his office, hopefully he recovers soon. Allegheny and ezekialstarr moved to 9-0 in conference play with the victory and now have a two game lead over Kenyon for the division crown.
: #1 Millsaps stayed perfect with a 84-64 home win over #24 Sewanee, North Carolina Wesleyan nailed a game winner with three seconds left to upset #12 Palm Beach Atlantic 77-75, #11 Dallas took care of Ozarks at home 69-55, Suffolk used a big first half to upset #21 W. New England 77-69, #15 Emerson made enough free throws at the end to down Newbury 78-74, Augustana knocked Millikin out of the rankings 97-86, #19 Louisiana got past Hendrix 66-56, and #20 Calvin cruised past Kalamazoo 85-68.
Sim blowout watch
: Washington just barely covered by 2 points to #7 Ursinus 46-99 while Concordia Moorhead had an easier cover by falling to #5 Hamline 58-86.
: Defiance went scoreless the last two minutes of regulation against Mt. St. Joseph, but they kicked the offense into gear in the overtime session and pulled away for a 86-75 road win. Defiance and nm1brownsfan opened up a two game lead in their division with the win while MSJ and cokeman fell into a tie for the south division.
Wentworth Tech (13-7)(chewchad) at #2 Nichols (20-0)(cactusrose)
Nichols looks to continue their winning streak in this Commonwealth Coast rematch from earlier in the season. They made their free throws in that one and escaped town with a slim 2 point victory. Wentworth Tech will be looking for revenge and to get back into position for a first round bye in the conference tourney. The series stands at 4-4 with the home team favored by 9 tonight.
: #25 Hardin-Simmons at #23 Austin, Oglethorpe at #9 Piedmont, Virginia Wesleyan at #10 Lynchburg, Wooster at #18 Kenyon, #21 W. New England at Rivier, and Trinity at #24 Sewanee
Sim blowout watch
: LeTourneau is a 52 point home dog against #16 Texas Lutheran and Methodist is getting 50 points as they host #12 Palm Beach Atlantic.
Simpson (12-7)(simpixut574) at Dubuque (14-5)(kubasnack)
Interesting cross-divisional game in the Iowa conference, with Simpson leading one side by a game and Dubuque tied atop the other division with a sim. The winner of this one gets a good boost in the standings along with bragging rights over the only other human in the conference. This will be the first meeting between these two and the home team is favored by 5.
