So there's a bowling connection involved in darnoc29099's user ID, thereby continuing the world's unprecedented streak of every single story in history starting with the words "So I'm a bowler..." turning out to be seriously dorky. Also, you only need a 290 series to qualify as an honor score? Wow, I sorta assumed college bowlers were better than that.
#10 Webster 62 Wisconsin La Crosse 52
The LC was up by 2 at the half but the Gorloks came out of the break and played some inspired defense in the second half, holding the home team to just 19 points. That's what Gorloks do sometimes, they just lull you into a sense of complacency and then before you know it, you've been Gorloked and there's nothing you can do about it. Webster and mschulte bounced up into the top ten with the season-opening win.
: #1 Menlo opened a big lead in the first half and coasted to a 86-60 win over Susquehanna, #13 Transylvania moved into the rankings with a 74-67 take-down of Texas Lutheran, #6 Ramapo took care of Worcester St. at home 81-66, #15 Millsaps came back from 15 down in the second half and beat Baldwin-Wallace at the buzzer 64-62, #8 Earlham outscored Emmanuel 48-38 in the first half... no wait, that's a final score... quite the shoot-out there, and #14 Trinity got past St. Lawrence on the road 79-62.

: North Central kept it fairly respectable and easily covered against #20 Vassar 61-86 while CSU Eastbay did quite a bit more than keep it respectable. They covered alright, they went ahead and beat the formerly #1 ranked Chapman 59-56. I'm pretty sure that's a first for the blowout watch.
#11 Wittenberg (1-0)(darnoc29099) at #16 Palm Beach Atlantic (1-0)(osgonlz)
Wittenberg hit the head pin in their first game and look to continue their striking ways as they travel down to Florida to face PBA. (Professional Bowlers Association!) The loser here will have to get out their spare ball and um... something with a split? I'm out of dumb bowling jokes, someone help me out here.
: North Carolina Wesleyan at #2 US Merchant Marines, #5 Kenyon at Maine Maritime, Dickinson at #15 Millsaps, #17 Occidental at Babson, Johnson and Wales at #20 Vassar, #23 Bridgewater at Christopher Newport, and Maryville at #25 Suffolk.
