Previous Evening MAC Review: Quatro Cinch

Kent State 94, Urbana 71 — The policy of not naming high scorers remains in tact ... except that the game high scorer was actually for the NAIA-reprezentin' Urbana Blue Knights. Robert Wilson, who grew up in nearby Streetsboro, Ohio, had 21 points and six rebounds for the visitors. He made 3-of-4 threeballs, 4-of-5 free throws, and actually led his team to a three-point halftime lead. Well done, sirs. Now, what say you about all this Chaminadian near-upset talk, Golden Flashes? We like you guys. Let's not have it happen again. Kent State's next game: Friday, 11/26 vs. Lehigh

OHIO 78, Valparaiso 75 — A manic depressive first half saw the Bobcats relent a 15-point lead to a one-point halftime deficit. But, remember, Ohio University Is Proof You Are Stupid™. The fun manifested itself as a hardwood crapshoot that ended up in the Bobcats' favor, and when the fairy god-dust settled, six Bobcats were in double-figure points. Per usual, DeVaughn Washington had the most with 14, and D.J. Cooper hit the double-double mark with 13 points and 10 assisted baskets. The next team looks hard. OHIO's next game: Friday 11/26 vs. Kansas in Las Vegas

Buffalo 81, Canisius 64 — UB's supposed to be a little iffy this year, right? Well, they're 3-1 and just pounced on a team that crushed a much-better Eastern Michigan team. We may need to reevaluate our prejudices. Byron Mulkey went wild for 23 points (8-for-8 free throw shooting) and five assists. Season-leading scorer Zach Filzen had his 13 as well, thanks to a few threes. Now it's time for an actual road trip; one where they leave city limits. Buffalo's next game: Saturday, 11/27 at Indiana State

Western Michigan 67, Milwaukee 55 — Another slight surprise aided by a strong Flenard Whitfield second half. Flenard is not, NOT David Kool ... but he's putting the team on his back, it seems, when they need him. After sitting out for many minutes in the first due to foul trouble, Whitfield had three easy buckets (one dunk) early in the second half and finished with 19 in the game. And welcome to the double-digit party, Juwan Howard Jr. Thirteen points is a solid, if unlucky, contribution to your team's first win of the season. Problem is, the next team's not going to be so gentle. Western Michigan's next game: Saturday, 11/27 vs. Illinois (
