College Hoops Go-Round: December 27

New, 1 comment

Editor's Note: SB Nation is still having difficulties with Sports Network box scores and recaps.

There was only one game on the Saturday schedule and it was certainly worthy of standing alone.  No. 6 West Virginia beat Seton Hall, 90-84, in overtime. The Mountaineers blew at 10-point lead at the end of regulation. Jeremy Hazell led the way for the Pirates, scoring a career-high 41, but missed free throws -- something that gave both teams trouble -- doomed the Hall. Devin Ebanks had 22 for the Mountaineers, Da`Sean Butler contributed 21, and Kevin Jones had 19 and 14 boards, including the three that really put the game away in the extra session.

Today's schedule is relatively quiet, as only two ranked teams, who share the same nickname, are in action. (Just wait 'til Tuesday, that's when things really ramp up.) All times are p.m. Eastern

  • Iona hopes to give No. 11 Connecticut a battle.  Given how the Huskies have struggled of late, this one bears watching, at least for a half (ESPNU, 2).
  • San Francisco heads to Seattle to take on No. 22 Washington (FS Northwest/FCS Pacific, 3). The Dons are 4-9 this season, so they shouldn't provide much of a challenge to the Huskies.

In other televised action 

  • Big South contender Radford visits a Louisville team that seems to be moving past its early December struggles (Big East/Full Court, 1).
  • Ohio Valley challenger Austin Peay visits Missouri, a team that's got to be feeling good after its first win over Illinois this decade (FS Midwest/Full Court, 2).
  • Illinois-Chicago visits Wisconsin in Madison (Big Ten, 3:30). The Badgers were close to earning a spot in the AP poll, and a win today may put them in.
