Sometimes I feel that it's more important to score nice round numbers than it is to actually score more than your opponent.
#10 Dickinson 85 #24 Wooster 60
We're going to try something a little different today, it's a HotN writeup. Half of the Night. Home team Wooster came out of the gate hot in this one, bursting out to an early 11-1 lead after four minutes. The visitors managed to recover and quickly closed the gap but were unable to pull even until tying it at 21 with just under eight minutes left in the half. The teams traded baskets the rest of the way with Dickinson sinking a floater with forty seconds on the clock to send the teams into the locker rooms in a tight contest, 33-32 Wooster. Overall it was quite the thrilling first half, certainly one to remember.

#16 Hendrix (3-0)(carson333) at #12 Willamette (3-0)(bullman17)
It's University visiting the Northwest conference as we have a nice clash of ranked and undefeated teams. This is the first meeting between these two coaches and the odds-makers have it as an even pick. However, that might be a rounding error and Willamette is actually favored by 0.000039 points.
