Winthrop lost Sunday night on a buzzer-beater to Fresno St., but Monday in back-to-back games, they upset #18 St. Mary's in Moraga, 61-59.

Of note, SMC favored by 19, was coming off an OT win over Wisconsin six days ago, but tonight only five SMC players scored, and their bench was outscored 38-2.

USF holds off Yale in OT 84-79.

Pacific was down 1 to Hawaii with 10 seconds left (after leading by 8 with 4 minutes left), then Stoudamire earns a tech after calling for a non-existent timeout to basically give Hawaii the win with 4 straight free throws. Big oooof.

Here's a ten-cent "around the WCC" after Week 1. 10-9 overall for the conference this week against D1 teams.

TRENDING UP
Portland: Keeping it competitive with USC and a nice road win over SJSU have the Pilots looking better than many expected so far.
Pacific: Mostly here because of their 22-point win over Florida A&M. Mighty Mouse learned a lesson last night long ago learned by Chris Webber. Poor guy.

ABOUT THE SAME
Gonzaga: Good thing the WCC changed to a 16-game schedule to allow Gonzaga to schedule tougher non-confer....what's that? They played #316 Alabama State and #341 UAPB this week? Oh.
BYU: Beat Fullerton, but blew a good opportunity at home against SDSU.
SCU: Beat Cal Poly at home.
USF: Two home wins over Ivy League opponents including Yale last night in OT. Close to “trending up” territory but both wins were expected.
LMU: Close road loss to Nevada on Saturday thanks in no small part to a couple big threes by Jazz in the second half.

TRENDING DOWN
SMC: Nice win over Wisconsin to start, but a loss to Winthrop last night will likely send them right out of the polls. The Gaels have some work to do, starting Thursday against a LBSU team that's been better than expected.
Pepperdine: Somehow pulled out a win over UCI despite being down 73-64 with two minutes to go, but got throttled in the opener against Cal.
San Diego: Losses to UCI and LBSU to start the year. Tough part of the schedule coming up and the Toreros could very well be 1-6 after the next two weeks.

BEST WIN
Portland over San Jose State (PORT was 51.8% favourites)

WORST LOSS
Winthrop over Saint Mary's (SMC was 94.5% favourites)

#1 Kentucky was 39-0 at home against unranked nonconference opponents until tonight when they were knocked off by the Evansville Purple Aces, 67-64.

Evansville won just 11 games last season and had never before beaten a ranked opponent, but tonight they shot from deep and outran UK...a team that was favored by 25.

An upset like that has to give all teams some hope...

That probably knocks SMC's loss out of the headlines.

I think you're probably right. Love seeing all the Purple Aces stuff all over Twitter this morning.

Great night for the WCC. 4-0 with wins by USD over Fresno, SCU over WSU, Pepperdine over Northridge, and Gonzaga over UND.

GU stepped up this week, and played #265 North Dakota. Will Maupin, the MidMajor Madness correspondent, is showing pictures on Twitter of the Zag student section half empty after halftime.

I like the SMC team and school...wish I could say the same for their head coach.

Wonder who was more upset with SMC's loss, Randy Bennett or Mark Few because the SMC loss "devalues GU's opponent NET." Razz

Tip of the cap to Gonzaga and BYU tonight. 30-point road win over Texas A&M for GU and a shot at the buzzer by T.J. Haws to give BYU a 72-71 win over future Pilots opponent Houston. That is a huuuuuuge win for BYU.

Nice to see one-time UP commit, Grant Anticevich, have a breakout game last night in Cal's win over D1 Cal Baptist.

You might recall that Anticevich, a former teammate of one-time Pilot (now a senior at Idaho St.) Chier Maker at Newington College in Sydney, committed to UP when Rev was the coach, and maintained his commitment after TP took over, but was told by TP to look elsewhere.  

Anticevich visited Rev at Georgia Tech, but landed at "closer to home" Cal and is now a 6-8/230 junior.

Last night Anticevich started and had 9 rebounds and 4 assists while shooting 9-11, including 5-5 from beyond the arc for a total of 23 points.

UP could use that kind of production...just saying.
