College Hoops Go-Round: January 4

The big story of the first Sunday of 2010 was USC's decision to punish itself for violations committed during the recruitment of O.J. Mayo. The Trojans, who have won eight in a row and sit at 2-0 after the first weekend of Pac-10 play, won't participate in any postseason tournament, even the Pac-10's.

On the court, it was a busy day for conference play.

  • In the ACC, No. 21 Clemson managed only 12 points in the first half, as they fell at No. 7 Duke74-53
  • Over in the Big East, No. 13 Georgetown blasted DePaul in Chicago, 67-50.
  • St. John's lost at Providence, 74-59
  • In Big Ten action, Wisconsin had no trouble at Penn State, winning 63-46
  • No. 15 Ohio State dropped their second straight Big Ten game, falling 73-64 at Michigan
  • Northern Iowa topped Missouri State, 84-76, to take early control of the Missouri Valley race.
  • Illinois State grabbed a 68-61 home win against Southern Illinois. 
  • Wichita State defeated Bradley, 81-69.
  • Creighton picked up a 72-64 road win at Evansville.
  • Indiana State defeated Drake, 60-46.
  • In the Big Sky, Montana State won 70-63 at Idaho State.

There were also a few non-conference games on the Sunday slate as well.

After the jump, I'll take a look at what's coming up on a relatively quiet Monday.

Conference action from the  Big East and WAC highlights tonight's TV schedule. All times are p.m. Eastern.

  • Pittsburgh at Cincinnati (ESPN, 7): Surprisingly, the Panthers and Bearcats both stand at 2-0 in the Big East.
  • Alabama A&M at Jackson State (ESPNU, 9): The Tigers, an early season SWAC favorite, host the Bulldogs in the league opener for both teams.
  • Nevada at New Mexico State (ESPNU, 11): The Wolf Pack fell at Louisiana Tech Saturday, while the Aggies knocked off Utah State.
  • Boise State at Hawai'i (Full Court, 11:59): Both teams are looking for their first WAC win.

There are also three non-conference games, two of them could be underwhelming.

  • North Carolina at College of Charleston (ESPNU, 7): Andrew Goudelock and co. host the Tar Heels.
  • Maryland-Eastern Shore at Oklahoma (Full Court, 8): The Sooners should (and I emphasize should) have an easy time with the Hawks.
  • Middle Tennessee at Vanderbilt  (SEC on FSN/Full Court, 8): Nashville-area rivals meet at Memorial Gym.
