Marcus Foster looked emotionless during his benching for a majority of the Oklahoma State rout of K-State. Veteran clubs George Washington and Virginia dominated early before furious, late, and, ultimately, unsuccessful runs by Saint Joseph’s and Miami respectively. Purdue pushes Michigan towards the NIT conversation as its bigs A.J. Hammons and Isaac Haas push the Wolverines around. Haas continues spelling Hammons for small portions as the two centers hardly ever play together. Seton Hall validated its legitimacy by beating Villanova. This is not a stunner, folks. The Pirates previously lost to only Wichita State and Georgia. Seton Hall’s twelve wins also include George Washington, Mercer and St. John’s. The Red Storm lost its second straight against Xavier in its first game without Ryshawn Jordan. Ohio State’s D’Angelo Russel had a coming out party at home, playing 40 minutes in an impressive win against Illinois. Houston transfer TaShawn Thomas had his own coming out party as Oklahoma handled Baylor. Isaiah Taylor looked energized in his return as Texas beat Texas Tech. West Virginia platooned without Juwan Staton to give TCU its first loss. Jarian Grant provided the poster of the year as Notre Dame “hangs on” in OT against Georgia Tech.
