Not sure which game was more exciting, GU's OT win over UO, or the #14 Arizona game with Pepperdine.

The game was tied at 42-42 at the half and it was still tied at the 7 second mark after PU had taken the lead a couple of times after being down by 12, but a length of the court lay-in at the buzzer won it for the Wildcats, 93-91.

PU's bench had zero points but the PU starters can really shoot from behind the arc (13-27) and from the free-throw line (18-19)...watch out WCC!

Skyler Chavez, the JUCO kid I wanted UP to recruit, had 20 points for the Waves.

In the follow-up games, Oregon played North Carolina tough, losing 78-74. GU got blown out by Michigan 82-64.

TRENDING UP
Pacific: Thumped SIU Edwardsville and Longwood by enough to jump up 25 spots in the Kenpoms from last week.
Loyola Marymount: Decent home win over Southern Utah yesterday.
BYU: Starting to make bubble noise after wins over UCLA and Virginia Tech in Hawaii this week.

ABOUT THE SAME
Santa Clara: Hosted the Cable Car Classic and won all three games, but against Denver, SE Missouri State, and Cal State Fullerton.
Pepperdine: Lost to Arizona, UCF, and Providence at the Anaheim tournament but put up enough of a fight in two games to stay right around the 120-125 mark in the rankings.
San Diego: Won over Hofstra, but started off their Boca Raton tourney with a loss to St. Bonaventure yesterday.
Saint Mary's: Nice home win over a good Utah State team on Friday and survived Omaha yesterday. Huge game against Dayton upcoming.
Portland: Unimpressive against Incarnate Word, but at least it was a W.
San Francisco: Beat Hampton at home, but the win streak came to an end at Hawaii.

TRENDING DOWN
Gonzaga: It's not overly fair to put them here after a nice win over Oregon, but the early rankings didn't like Michigan running away with the Atlantis final over Gonzaga. This is more of a product of Michigan being much, much, much better than expected.

BEST WIN
BYU over Virginia Tech (40.5% chance)

WORST LOSS
Michigan over Gonzaga (31.9% chance)

STAT OF THE WEEK
If you rank all of the 353 D1 teams by current strength of schedule, three WCC teams are in the bottom 11 - Pacific at 343, Portland at 349, and Santa Clara at 352. Coincidence, or an expected result of the "WCC scheduling enhancement strategy" put in place last year? You be the judge.

I'm up late working. Anyone else watching the USF-ASU basketball game? The Dons are playing an impressive and competitive match against the Sun Devils. Tied at 64 with 3:25 to go currently. I was questioning the Dons' SOS, but this might be a quality win/loss for them at the end.

Also, War Memorial Gymnasium is looking amazing. They really have put a lot of money into upgrading that facility.

I jinxed them. ASU won 71-67. Still was an impressive game from the Dons.

Owing to USF's impressive start to the season, despite the 10 point loss in Honolulu after winning their first seven games, ASU was favored by only 1 point in the game...

In back-to-back games, the Dons take on Cal in War Memorial on Wednesday night and are favored by 8.

That's a pretty large margin over the Bears, but Cal has been struggling even when winning, despite having the 3rd best 3-point shooting percentage in the country at 43.4%

Who's #1 in the country, you ask?  

The University of Portland Pilots are the #1 team in the country, shooting 46% behind the arc.  Shocked

ESPN stats this morning show UP at #2 at .446, and SMC at #1 at .458. Still very, very good.

For comparison purposes, UP ranks #258 in FT% at .669. Pepperdine is #2 at .847. That variance amounts to 3 points per game the Pilots lose due to poor FT shooting; maybe more considering front end 1&1 misses. D is atrocious in this stat, under 50%; a big liability at the end of a close game. And JoJo needs to pick up his performance; he is 54% on 3Ps, and only 61% on FTs. How is that possible?

Interesting, this morning KenPom still shows:

1. UP 46%
2. Northeastern 44.5%
3. Cal 43.4%
4. SMC 43.2%

Do you suppose the difference is one outlet uses all stats and one uses only D1 game stats?

UP shot "only" 38.5% (10-26) against Willamette.

Although it's nice to be #1 in something, I'd rather see UP give up some 3-pointers to grab some rebounds and make free-throws. Twisted Evil
