Good Morning Hoops Nation: December 15--The Mid-Majority

Illinois-Chicago 66, at Georgia Tech 60 -- Lost in the A-14 party was a very solid win by the Horizon League, a conference putting itself in borderline two-bid position with a strong December showing. Butler may have come close to a second straight upset of Ohio State, but UIC finished the job out at the house of the ACC's Ramblin' Wreck. Scott Vandermeer, a solid big who doesn't get his due, had 19 points and 7 rebounds to complement Josh Mayo's 17, and the Flames cracked open a win late. UIC has also beaten Vanderbilt, and should not be overlooked in the HL.

# Illinois-Chicago 66, Georgia Tech 60. This is why Georgia Tech is so confounding - one game, Aminu, Lawal and Shumpert will look fantastic; the next, they’ll go for a measly 26/18 combined.
# Wake Forest 66, Wright St. 53. This was another sloppy game, as Wake looked listless and suffered continued turnover problems, but Harvey Hale hit five threes to ensure another victory for the Deacs at home.

- Cleveland State at #11 Syracuse at 7 PM on Time Warner-New York: Should be another snoozefest, but you might want to check the Orangemen out to see how they are adjusting to life without Eric Devendorf (or not). If Time Warner-New York is on their game, they will run a feature on the 1985-86 Cleveland State team that upset Indiana in the NCAA tournament that was documented in John Feinstein’s classic “Season on the Brink” (great winter break reading for the erudite RTC fan).
