The field for the Bidwell Bash Invitational isn't quite set yet, so I won't be able to complete the CCAA-Gulf South Challenge field until I know which team from the Gulf South will be playing in the Bidwell Bash.  I should know that tonight and I will publish our schedule here as soon as I know.

Game 5 was opening night for the season 69 CCAA-Gulf South Challenge.  Here are the night's results:

Cal. Poly Pomona 70, Arkansas Monticello 51
In his first season at Poly, coach bgrossi was itching for his first win, and now 0-5 Monticello and coach JD_smith were happy to oblige.  Poly cruised to a 70-51 win on the road against a Arkansas, Monticello team that appears to be ghost-shipped, with 5 (FIVE!) walk-ons.  Poly Pomona was led by 19 points and 11 boards from SR PF Brian Peterson and James Rice put up 24 points in the loss for Arkansas Monticello.

Delta St. 75, CSU Stanislaus 65
Coach SimAI and CSU Stanislaus gave Delta St. and coach salag all they could handle, but at the end of the game the human touch was more than CSU Stanislaus could handle as Delta St. recovered from a 4-point deficit with 8 minutes to play to get away from Stanislaus with a frustrating 75-65 win.  In the media room after the game, coach salag blamed his team's uninspried performance on "mean reversion" and "stupid game engines".  Gulf South and WCAA officials declined to comment, but sources say a fine is being considered for coach salag's postgame rant.  PG James Doyon led Delta St. with 17 points in the win, and PG-playing-SF Scott Hardy added 16 more.

The Challenge is tied 1-1 after the opening night.

Results from night 2 of the CCAA-Gulf South Challenge:

West Georgia 77, CSU Dominguez Hills 67
West Georgia and coach sslats improve to 6-0 and move to #10 in all of the land with a 10-point win on their home floor after opening up a 10-point halftime lead.  Four West Georgia players scored in double figures in the win, 2 in the starting lineup and 2 off the bench, combining for 56 of West' Georgia's 77 points.

Ouachita Baptist 64, Grand Canyon 49
Ouachita Baptist didn't have a single player in double digits, and both of its leading scorers came off the bench with 9 points a piece in this ugly team-effort win.  OBU held Grand Canyon to just 38.8% shooting from the floor and forced 23 turnovers as its defense led the way in the win.

Gulf South 3, CCAA 1
2/11/2014 8:09 AM
Results from night 3 of the Challenge:

Alabama Huntsville 64, CSU San Bernardino 56
Alabama Huntsville and coach tlfisch improved to 7-0 and put the Gulf South up 4-1 in the Challenge with an 8-point win over visiting CSU San Bernardino.  Alabama Huntsville's guard duo of Kevin Kirkpatrick and Norman Killebrew combined to score 34 of their team's 64 points on 11 of 20 shooting, including 6 of 14 from deep.  Alabama Huntsville trailed by 4 points with 3 minutes to play and that's when Killebrew took over, scoring 8 of his game-high 21 in the final 3 mintues leading Alabama Huntsville on a 15-3 run to seal the win.
2/12/2014 9:06 AM
Coach Salag cannot confirm or deny reports of his discipline following the CSU, Stanislaus game. All he can say that his wallet may be lighter but every penny was earned in the post-game curse-filled rant.

Results from nights 4 and 5 of the Challenge.  Sorry for the delay on night 4.  Yesterday was a bit crazy at work:

Lincoln Memorial 59, San Francisco St. 53
Coach mmd1821 and Lincoln Memorial used a slow, deliberate approach to this game, running what can only be described as the Princeton offense at its finest, on the way to 51.4% shooting from the field and a 59-53 win overcoach platoisek and San Francisco St.  Lincoln Memorials backcourt duo of Charles White and Randall Jones and do-everything swingmanf Arron Sturgill at the SF combined to score 37 of their team's points and had 8 assists to just 4 turnovers between them.  San Francisco St. PG Randy Deaton lead his team with 13 points before picking up his 5th foul with under a minute to play.

UC San Diego 91, Central Arkansas 70
Coach ARomano likes to speed things up at UC San Diego, and that exactly what they did in this contest enroute to a 91-70 win at home over Central Arkansas and new coach emy1013.  Central Arkansas tried to slow the game down, but UC San Diego's press was more than they could handle as UCSD forced 19 turnovers vs. 12 of their own.

CSU Los Angeles 60, Henderson St. 50
Coach SimAI at Henderson St. couldn't crack the code against cbryant31's human brain, and fell to the invaders from Los Angeles 60-50 at home.  CSU LA's frontcourt combo of PF James Murphy and C John Ojeda led the charge for their team with 28 points and 12 board (10 for Ojeda) between them.  CSULA played very good defense, holding Henderson St. to just 35.6% shooting from the field.

CSU Bakersfield 68, Christian Brothers 63
Christian Brothers, led by coach td16, gave home-team CSU Bakersfield and dan2044 all they could handle, but Bakersfield got the win to stay undefeated and bring the CCAA within a game of the Gulf South in the Challenge headed into the final night.  Four Bakersfield starters were in double figures, led by PG Jim "The Wonder Kid" Wondoloski's 16 points and 3 assits.  SF-playing-PF Brian Wright added 11 points and 10 boards for the home team.  Christian Brothers put up a balanced scoring effort, with 2 players scoring 10 points and all 11 players who saw the floor scoring at least 1 bucket.

Going into the final night of the Challenge the Gulf South leads the CCAA 5-4.
