you were a ranked team named North Carolina, Nebraska, Tennessee, Stanford, Oklahoma State, Louisville, Maryland, Notre DameKentucky, Georgia, Baylor, Oklahoma (Ellenberg seems to be ok) and Cal.

A little more excitement was had by Penn State, LSU and Purdue.

St. John’s is NOT enjoying being the host of the Chartwells Holiday Classic.

Yah, I see you’re 8-1, West Virginia. Let’s chat after you meet Oklahoma State and Baylor.

Baby steps — San Francisco earned its fourth win.

It took two overtimes, but Michelle Plouffe (and the Utes) took down BYU, 82-74, earning Plouffe espnW Player of the Week honors.

Cats might get nine lives, but giving Michelle Plouffe 10 extra minutes doomed the BYU Cougars on Saturday.

In leading Utah to in-state wins against Utah Valley and BYU this past week, the latter with one of the season’s most impressive individual finishing kicks, Plouffe earned espnW national player of the week honors and provided the young Utes with some much-needed momentum.

Yup, they take this in-state competition seriously: two overtimes later, it was Memphis over Tennessee Tech , 78-76.

Wyoming is putting together a nice season so far (“Fallon Lewis is too small, and Kaylie Rader is too young. And somehow, it doesn’t matter.“). Tough to get games against ranked opponents, though.

Yes, they’re 9-1, but the tough part of Arizona State’s schedule doesn’t hit until late January. Then it’s Cal, Stanford, Utah and Colorado.

Probably my fault: Grand Canyon (“Who?” you ask? “The only for-profit institution with a Division I athletic program,” I answer. ) deals East Carolina their first loss of the season.

DEFINITELY my fault: Quinnipiac takes down Albany. Big.

Resisting the WHB curse, UTEP moves to 9-0.

The kind of game Debbie Antonelli lives for: Sacramento State 99, UC Irvine 94.

And another one: Eastern Michigan 104, Detroit 96.

It’s a signature win only in the sense that the Bearcats have been waiting for something to hang their hat on: Cincinnati over Ohio State.

In the battle of the Missouri Valley v. the Horizon League, it was the Shockers over the Phoenix, 63-58.

Happy 1000th point for Pittsburgh’s Kiesel.

Graham Whites abWout the Wabbits.

Megan Waytashek watched more basketball during her first two years at South Dakota State than she ever had before or likely ever wants to again. As injuries separated her from the court for the first time in her life, all she could do was sit and watch. Game after game after game.

As Wednesday night crept toward Thursday morning, watching a game was all she wanted to do. Over and over again.

No matter that the final exam period began the next day for Waytashek, a mechanical engineering major, and others at the school in Brookings, S.D., an hour north of Sioux Falls and four hours west of Minneapolis. Those headaches could wait a few hours more. She just wanted to keep watching scenes from South Dakota State’s 83-79 victory against No. 12 Penn State from earlier that night, the one in which she had 18 points and eight rebounds in 31 minutes. The one in which she was in the middle of the celebration at the final buzzer.

About that Blue and White v. White and Blue game tomorrow:

No. 1 UConn, expected to be at full strength, set for No. 2 Duke and Huskies get boost as Mosqueda-Lewis, Tuck ready to return and KML, Tuck expect to play at Duke and KML And Tuck Are Likely Available For Duke Game and UConn women back at full strength.

From Jim Fuller: Senior guards go way back in UConn/Duke rivalry

It’s not uncommon to see parents vigorously cheering on the UConn women’s basketball team. It’s rare to look up in the stands and not see at least one of Kiah Stokes parents as well as family members of current Huskies Bria Hartley and Breanna Stewart, among others taking in the action.

However, in UConn’s trip to Pacific back during 2010-11 season, Hartley had a couple of familiar faces who made the trip to see her play. Yes, they were family members just not her own. It was the parents of Duke point guard Chelsea Gray who came out to show support to one of their daughter’s best friends.

Ooooooo! Rival For UConn Women? Duke Hasn’t Put Up Much Of A Fight

at about half time, most of the numbered world was rather askew. Injuries and unfocused play seemed the norm, and tight games or deficits were everywhere.

But, come the second half, balance was restored and all moved forward as expected for Kentucky, Tennessee, Maryland, Miami and Penn State. (Gotta wonder, though, how bad Glory’s injury is — no fun for TN as they prepare for Notre Dame)

Not many issues for Gonzaga, Stanford, UConn, Ohio State, Delaware, Purdue  and Green Bay.

Vandy didn’t get the memo, though. They started slowly against Arkansas and never recovered, as the Razorbacks got their first win against the Commodores since 2006.

UNC took out its frustrations on (who else) Va Tech and Hatchell got her 600th as a Tar Heel.

Hmmmm, South Carolina isn’t building on their past record — they lost to Auburn, 53-49.

BU is now 6-0 in the America East. (Hello, Graham? Mechelle? Michelle? Some attention please?) Plenty of games still to play, but keep your eye on the Feb 18th home game against Albany.

Oooooo, that was close: In a match up between the top teams in the MAC, it was Bowling Green that escaped still unscathed. They were 61-58 winners over Miami (OH).

Bwahahahaaa, take that! In the “former WNBA-players-now-coaches” rematch, Cynthia Cooper’s UNC-Willmington got their revenge as they eked out a 57-56 win over Beth Cunningham’s VCU.

Bang! There’s now a dent in the Pride’s CAA record: James Madison took them down, 81-63.

Remember when Michigan State was ranked? They’re really shaky this year — Minnesota defeated them 71-65. Rumor has it the Gophers have a nice young point guard.

The Shockers are now 6-0 in the MVC. I guess this means I’m going to have to research the history of their nickname, huh?

Don’t mess with NAIA D-II, #5 Concordia (NEB). They defeated Nebraska Omaha, 68-60.

It’s early, but with their win over Utah State, Fresno State in now 2-0 in the WAC.

USC moved to 5-1 in the Pac-12, taking down the Ducks, 92-73.

Don’t know that Spoon is having much fun this season: the Techsters lost to Hawaii. No disrespect intended, but Hawaii!
