10) 6-8pm:

9) 8-10pm

— Cornell 67, Harvard 61— Crimson won in 3OT’s Friday, lost here as double digit favorites.

8) 10pm-12
— Arizona State 75, Washington 63— First conference loss for the Huskies.
— Texas 75, West Virginia 53— Very rough season for the Mountaineers.
— Washington State 69, Arizona 55— Fifth straight loss for the Wildcats. 

7) Upsets of the Day
— Washington State (+13.5) 69, Arizona 55
— Cornell (+10) 67, Harvard 61
— Charlotte (+10) 69, UAB 62
— TCU (+9.5) 92, Iowa State 83
— Citadel (+8.5) 67, Mercer 61

6) Duquesne 74, Fordham 66— Dukes are 2-3 in their last five games; in the two wins, they were trailing by 17, 16 points at halftime. 

5) Harvard 98, Columbia 96, 3OT— Kid named Bryce Aiken scored 47 points in his first four games this year; he scored 44 points in this game, his 5th of the season after he missed almost a whole year with a knee injury. 

Aiken was 4-10 on the arc, 16-18 on foul line in this Friday night marathon.

4) Gonzaga’s Killian Tillie has a partially torn plantar fascia (foot); Zags think Tillie will miss rest of regular season, are hopeful he can return for the postseason. Big blow for Gonzaga if he doesn’t come back. 

3) One really good thing about AAF telecasts is that the replay official in the booth is miked, so you hear his verdict as he tells the referee on the field. NFL should do that. 

2) Non-basketball thing I learned from listening to Bill Walton Saturday night; amongst cities, Seattle is the 11th biggest economy in our country, Phoenix is 16th. 

1) Bad Beat of the Day:
Samford (-6.5) 84, VMI 77, OT

I've been involved in sports my whole life, now just write about them. I like to travel, mostly to Las Vegas- they have gambling there.
