“I’m going to Holiday World!”
You were out grocery shopping with the in-laws, weren’t you? I knew it. Man, you missed a great night of college basketball. I’ll trade you a recap for a scoop of that sausage casserole…
“We Are The Champions”
(1) Indiana 82, Georgetown 72
The Hoosiers needed overtime to outlast unranked Georgetown and win the Progressive Legends Classic championship in the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. After the game, Indiana celebrated with the tournament trophy while “We Are The Champions” played over the sound system.
The Progressive Legends Classic championship parade is tentatively scheduled for 4:30 this afternoon in Bloomington. Rings will be distributed prior to Indiana’s home game against Coppin State on December 1.
“North Carolina cuts it to 22.”
Butler 82, (9) North Carolina 71
That’s not what fans expected to hear from announcer Sean McDonough during this second round game of the Maui Invitational. Butler led by as many as 29 points in its upset win over the Tar Heels.
What happened to Villanova?
Columbia 75, Villanova 57
Jay Wright’s team got killed at home by Columbia of the Ivy League. It was the Fightin’ Meadow Sopranos first win over a Big East team since 1985.
It’s going to be a long year for ‘Nova.
47-year-old Shabazz Muhammad carried UCLA to a win
(11) UCLA 60, Georgia 56
Shabazz Muhammad scored 21 points in his first career start to help UCLA narrowly escape a 1-3 Georgia team that has losses to Southern Miss and Youngstown State.
— Why is Shabazz Muhammad allowed to play when Jurkin and Mosquera-Perea have to sit out at Indiana?
— How old is Shabazz Muhammad?
He has grey hair. I need to see a birth certificate.
Mississippi State sucks.
Marquette 89, Mississippi State 62
They really, really suck.
Michigan State lost Gary Harris in a close win
(15) Michigan State 74, Boise State 70
The former UK target suffered a severe left shoulder injury in the opening minute of the game.
Afterwards, Tom Izzo said, “Best case, sprain, out a couple weeks. Worst case, out a long, long, long, long time.”

Jack Taylor of Grinnell college took a shot every 20 seconds in Grinnell’s 179-104 win over Faith Baptist Bible. “I felt like anything I threw up was going in,” he said after game.
Yeah, everything except for the 56 shots he missed.
