Yah, yah, yah, it’s early… but I am intrigued to see how it plays out in conference play….
Calling this an upset: UNO has been horrible, and just a few years ago Joi Williams and UCF was making some noise. This time it was the Mavericks who had the last laugh.
Calling this an upset: Boston College, who has disappeared off the face of the women’s basketball world since Kathy Inglese exited the sidelines, over Maine, who has rebuilt their program.
Calling this a “still trying to see if the rankings match the team” upset: #18 Kentucky over #14 Arizona State, 68-64 (OT). Especially impressive, considering it was in Tempe, and the Wildcats fraught off-season.
A “heads up” game – though I’m not sure if it’s for Stanford or Gonzaga: After an even first three quarters, the fourth saw the Cardinal pull away from the Bulldogs and win, 65-48.
Considering the Tar Heels’ opening game, not sure this can be qualified as an upset: Oregon over #22 North Carolina, 79-77. The shadow the academic scandal is casting is long…
This is an upset: AT the Yum Center, Cal rebuffed a fierce comeback by #8 Louisville to capture a 75-71 win.
Hmmm… looks like this could be a good year for the Blue Jays, and a tough year for the Red Foxes: Creighton over Marist, 89-46.
Well, Hello, Ragin’ Cajuns! It was a nail-biting last few minutes, but you pulled off the upset of Ole Miss.
And, yes Drake, we see you takin’ down Iowa State.
