Another new #1 team today as Wittenberg stayed undefeated last night and moved up to the top spot in the rankings, RPI, and SOS. Pretty studly.
#1 Wittenberg 73 Wooster 65
How nice, why don't we just get darnoc a giant medal to wear around. He's totally the best. And stuff.
: #23 Allegheny knocked #3 Grove City out of the top spot with a 56-54 home win, Emmanuel upset #9 Emerson 73-65, #12 Hendrix got past Millsaps 71-64, #19 Rivier defended the home court against Suffolk 55-46, and #22 Ozarks edged Louisiana 57-52.

: Both of our sims got the cover last night, Averett against #2 Piedmont 74-117 and Shenandoah at #11 Oglethorpe 54-91.
: #17 Willamette was impressive in the first half and built up a 12 point lead over Chapman by the time the halftime buzzer sounded. They were then able to maintain that lead through the second half and finish off a 73-55 victory to improve to 2-0 in conference.
#4 Dallas (11-1)(tarvolon) at #22 Ozarks (9-3)(westcoast22)
Time to pay a visit to the University conference where ranked divisional foes face off. Dallas is looking to bounce back from their first loss of the season last night and a road win against the 2-0 team they're chasing in the standings would be clutch. westcoast leads the series 3-1 but the visitors are favored by 3 in this one.
: #2 Piedmont at #25 Palm Beach Atlantic, #3 Grove City at Wooster, #8 Hardin-Simmons at Howard Payne, and #19 Rivier at Norwich

: Lots of big spreads to choose from tonight but the biggest is winless Texas Tyler getting a massive 90 points on the road at #7 Whittier.
Emmanuel (8-4)(bananajacobs) at Johnson and Wales (8-3)(spasticity)
These two teams are 14 and 11 in RPI, 9 and 12 in SOS, and 19 and 22 on the projection report. But somehow neither are in the top 25. Come on, get your act together voters, this is just silly. Anyway, both teams are undefeated in conference play and will be in the race for the top of the east division in the Great Northeast. This is the first of two games between them and it should be a good one. The visitors are favored by a single point.
