Running down the Wasatch front, Weber State extended their home court winning streak to 23 straight games defeating Montana. BYU looked to defeat Gonzaga but came up short at the Kennel. Gonzaga now leads the nation with 24 straight wins at home. Utah kept it close most of the game at Arizona yesterday but the number one team prevailed 65-56. Surprising Utah Valley State remains unbeaten in the WAC. Southern Utah stinks.
Marshall Henderson back to his ways with cussin out Mississippi State head coach Rick Ray the other night. God forbid I find it funny. But we're not robots yet. Stony Brook protected home floor against Vermont. This has to be the year for Stony Brook. Texas took care of the Baylor safety patrol and the horns looking better game to game. USC looking like they can actually compete this weekend defeating Cal but losing in overtime to Stanford. Oh well. Getting back to Utah State, right now it looks like the Aggies are in danger of not winning 21 games for the first time in 14 seasons. Who knew that Gonzaga, Duke, Kansas, Syracuse and Utah State were the only teams to win 21 games each year the past 14 seasons.
Kudos to Cincinatti, Stony Brook, Syracuse, St. Louis, Michigan, Kansas, Delaware, Green Bay, Wichita State, San Diego State, Robert Morris, Arizona, American, Florida, Chatanooga, S.F. Austin, Georgia State, and the Wolverines of Utah Valley State. They remain undefeated thus far in conference play. I purposely left out the Ivy because they have only played 4 games thus far.
Some Buzzer Beaters
Gee Whiz! Nice shot from the Mocs' Gee McGhee: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DHiDXnihulo
Crazy shots courtesy of the Big West's Hawaii-UC Irvine game: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mthbetc2M-A&list=UU4JJjCP4w7kOIL1pm59EzeA&feature=c4-overview Hawaii wound up losing in overtime.
While perusing the Bob's Blitz website I came across the Zoran Planinic buzzer beater: http://www.bobsblitz.com/2014/01/former-nets-player-zoran-planinic-hit.html Too bad it had to come off of Keith Langford's missed free throw, sorry Jamaal.
