In Wake’s victory over Richmond, John Collins had 16 points and 13 rebounds - in 19 minutes. That’s tremendous.

Wake got another 32 rebounds and controlled the boards 45-31. The Deacs won the battle of the paint 34-24. Wake Forest never trailed in this one.

Bryant Crawford had another poor shooting game, hitting just 2-6 and none of his threes. He did have 10 assists though.

Aside from Collins, Konstantinas Mitoglou and Greg McClinton, no one topped 50%. That makes this a pretty solid win because Wake had to earn it.

Virginia was upset at home by West Virginia 66-57.

It was a tight game until the Mountaineers hit a tie-breaking three with 1:28 left.

Key stat: Virginia hit 7-13 from the line while West Virginia nailed 16-19 which, coincidentally, accounts for the 11-point margin of victory here.

Only three players for either team scored in double figures in this one with Darius Thompson high man at 14.

State continues to struggle. Abdul-Malik Abu and Ted Kapita combined for 11 points and 11 boards. That’s not bad, but they're capable of a lot more than that.

Louisville and Syracuse got close games from Grand Canyon and North Florida respectively.

DeWayne Russell, who didn’t play when Grand Canyon visited Duke, torched Louisville for 42 points. Louisville had four guys in double figures.

The Cards also scored 18 off of turnovers and controlled the paint with 44 points.

Syracuse did beat Northern Florida but had to hold on to win and break a two-game losing streak.

The Orange had a 24 point lead and surrendered most of that as the Ospreys roared back.

Frank Howard had his second double-double (with points and assists) of the season, scoring 10 points and passing out 13 assists.

The other games are a good bit less interesting: Miami beat Wofford, as the ‘Canes should. Miami shot well and passed the ball better, a point of emphasis lately.

Georgia Tech fell to Tennessee 81-58. We were overly optimistic and thought that perhaps Tech was ready to step up but not yet.

Ben Lammers had 10 points and 14 rebounds.

Finally, BC moved to over .500 with an 18 point win over winless Dartmouth. It doesn’t sound like much but BC is a hurting program. We’re sure they’re thrilled. Jerome Robinson had 27 to pace the way for the Eagles.

On Sunday, Clemson takes on Coppin State, Redford plays the Heels, FSU visits George Washington and Notre Dame plays NC A&T.
