Mid-Major Notes

  • Penn continues to play well through their tough non-conference schedule. The Quakers were able to upset Villanova in the Palestra.
  • Lipscomb falls just short in an attempt to add another great win to their resume @ Louisville.
  • Murray State makes another statement with a massive win on the road by 28 over Southern Illinois, who nearly upset Kentucky.
  • Bucknell plays great, but falls short in a game with Ohio State that they led the majority of.
  • Charleston adds to their solid non-conference win list as they beat VCU.
  • Drake loses just their second game of the year in a great effort against Iowa State.
  • Belmont keeps impressing me more and more each week, this week they upset UCLA.
  • Gonzaga allows UNC to score 103 points as they fall to the Tar Heels.
  • South Dakota State puts up a great effort in their game with Nevada, but they come up short losing by four.
  • St Mary’s falls to LSU by just 4 at home in a great game.
  • Western Kentucky suffers another hurtful loss, falling to Troy at home.
  • Liberty falls to Alabama, but they played a great game on the road and I expect them to challenge Lipscomb for the A-Sun title.
  • Buffalo finishes week 6 with another fantastic win for the Mid-Majors, beating Syracuse in the Carrier Dome, just as Old Dominion did earlier in the week.
