you know, blogging, so it took me a while to get to the big upset of yesterday… which, when you look at the box is quite easy to explain: Free throws and fouls.

Great, great back-and-forth game between #8 Maryland and #6 Miami, and it wasn’t Williams or Johnson who pushed the Hurricanes to victory, but Yderstrom.

Vandy couldn’t take advantage of their big win over TN and got handled by the Bulldogs.

It was reeeeeally, reaaaally close, but #23 Georgia Tech continued North Carolina’s misery, 56-54.

Loyola (MD) (12-13, 8-6MAAC) surprised the heck out Fairfield (18-7, 11-3), 55-48.

Nice, if not important, win for ODU (9-16, 6-7 CAA) over UNC-Wilmington (15-9, 8-5).

Indiana missed out on their first Big Ten win by one point.

The worst thing about the Border Showdown was not the score (KState 47, K 43), but the injury to Jayhawk Carolyn Davis.

VCU v. James Madison was the expected dogfight: Dukes over Rams, 65-64.

There was a moment during halftime when UCLA had visions of upsets dancing in their heads. Then N.O. said, “No.”

Both UTEP and Middle Tennessee won to stay fer-0 in conference play.

Well, you’ve got to believe that this was Georgia Tech’s biggest win in the Joseph era: nipping #8 (and no longer undefeated) UNC 71-70. The Tar Heels has a 7-point lead with 1:40 left. Oops. That’s three straight at home for the Yellow Jackets, and just third victory in the last 17 meetings vs. UNC.

#10 Kentucky didn’t have much time to recover from their loss at Duke — and Arkansas may have given some “pushover no more” notice — as the Razorbacks knocked off the Wildcats.

Duke was in a Terp-fight with Maryland, but (as they seem to do in close games) clamped down and pulled away in the end for the 71-64 victory.

Michigan St. took care of business against Wisconsin, while the WHB Jinx did its work on Michigan v. Purdue. Virginia Tech was no match for Florida State, and Green Bay dispatched a stubborn Youngstown State.

I think it would be an act of kindness not to discuss the masacree that was the Tennessee/Alabama game, or the 30pt-answer Stanford gave to Tom’s question in the Mechelle chat.

tom: Pac 10 questions. What do you think of Niya Butts and the Arizona program? They seem to be winning solidly. As things stand, could they be the fifth Pac 10 team (behind Stanford, UCLA, USC and ASU) to get in? Cal is a bit of a question mark at this point, correct?

Mechelle Voepel: The Wildcats lost to Texas A&M in November but kept the game pretty close, which was a good sign. Another sign will be how they fare against Stanford tonight – not whether they win, which is unlikely, but how well they play. As for Cal, the vast majority of teams are still NCAA tournament “question marks” now, so they have plenty of time to make their case for a tournament bid. Will need to show more determination and fight than they did against Stanford over the weekend, which I’m sure Coach Boyle has been talking to the Bears about this week.

Unranked Denver took down #23 Vanderbilt, 70-65.

Equally unranked Louisville took down #9 Kentucky, 78-52.

Being unranked didn’t stop Indiana from defeating#19 Nebraska, 67-61.

Georgia Tech earned state bragging rights by crushing #22 Georgia, 69-53.

#25 Michigan State ran all over Texas, 71-57.

Finally, while Florida’s not ranked, it’s hard not to call their 56-50 defeat by Brown — yes, BROWN UNIVERSITY– an upset.

And that’s a nice win for Co and Penn State over Texas Tech.

Meanwhile Connecticut (with Moore becoming their all-time scoring leader), Baylor, Tennessee, Notre Dame and Xavier (who got all they could handle from the Bearcats), UCLA, Ohio State, Iowa State and Iowa took care of business.
