The Yotes are fortunate to win that game after allowing Drake to play their game in the first half. They switched to a zone in the third that really stonewalled Drake’s offense, and just gutted it out at the end. I don’t know if we beat them more than 5 out of 10 games, but we did yesterday! Great RPI boost, as they will decimate the MVC.
Big win for the Jacks today. 61-50 over #21 South Florida. Should help their RPI considerably. Tomorrow is Notre Dame followed by FGCU on Saturday in the Cancun tournament. Nest week they play #1 Oregon. Quite a stretch of high profile games.
I know this pales in comparison to the big wins by SDSU and South Dakota (congrats to both teams) today but Denver beat a solid UC Irvine team 83-75. Specifically I am mentioning the game because senior Madison Nelson had a performance worth the mention. She recorded the 2nd 20/20 game in program history. (she had the first last season). She scored 24 points with 21 boards and had her 5th consecutive double double.
