News On The Horizon 12/19/2010

Previous Evening MAC Review, On The Lemmings Scale--Hustle Belt

Milwaukee 72, Bowling Green 69 — Ultimately disappointing, and here's why. BG was overmatched in this game, and yet they took a narrow halftime game and turned it into a 11-point lead halfway through the second. It seemed as if they were just trying to wear down nine minutes of clock, and UWM recognized the fear in this 2-8, then used it to their advantage. At least A'uston Calhoun had a fun night with a career-best 26 points and eight rebounds. Scott Thomas returned to action with 13 points, 10 rebounds, and six assists. Bowling Green's next game: Wednesday, 12/22 vs. Manhattan

Detroit 75, Central Michigan 49 — Probably not the nationally televised game the Chips had in mind to show off their shiny McGuirk Arena. The game was close for about 14 minutes, and then the Titans took off and refused to be stopped by mere maroon humans. Trey Zeigler led the way with 21 points for CMU, and Andre Coimbra had an odd night: 10 points, eight boards, five blocks, but he also fouled out. As a team, shooting 27 percent isn't gonna help much, and missed free throws only acted as a second shovel. But hey! The women beat up on Ole Miss earlier in the day! Central Michigan's next game: Monday, 12/20 vs. South Dakota State

Wright State 66, Miami 51 — If it's okay, I'm just gonna have Charlie Coles recap all the games. His summation of this 15-point loss? "That was a clear-cut Wright State knockout early second round." All Julian Mavunga could do was net 17 points, but the Raiders took a lead early and held it throughout the game. The 5-6 record speaks for itself, but Miami just does this sometimes — it's almost as if they take games off. I know they're trying every night, but occasionally it seems like they shrivel up in big games, and then they surprise you with a big win. (See: Xavier.) Miami's next game: Tuesday, 12/21 vs. Cincinnati

No games today. Monday's schedule:

5 p.m. — Valparaiso at Eastern Michigan
