News On The Horizon 11/10/2012

10 red line upsets that could ruin your weekend--Run The Floor
8. Detroit at St. John's, Tuesday

Detroit came within six points of an upset against St. John's last season, but they're not as good as they were with Eli Holman, LaMarcus Lowe and Chase Simon gone. Steve Lavin is without God'sgift Achiuwa but he has everyone else back and the Red Storm will be competitive in the Big East. They were picked 10th in their preseason poll.

Pomeroy gives Detroit a 27 percent shot.
10. Milwaukee at South Carolina, Sunday

The Horizon League's Milwaukee nearly lost to Division-II Parkside in an exhibition last week after their starting shooting guard went down with a hand injury to his non-shooting hand, so this one became a lot more unlikely. Even so, the Gamecocks return two starters to their 10-win team and won't be as solid in the frontcourt.

Pomeroy gives Milwaukee a 28 percent chance.

The Heat led 72-71 after the third quarter but used a 10-2 run to begin the fourth quarter. Bosh anchored the Heat’s starting lineup to begin the final period with Norris Cole, Allen, Haslem and Rashard Lewis providing support.

“They did a great job,” James said. “They raised the lead for us and we needed every bucket. Tonight was one of those division games, one of those hand-to-hand combat games, and it’s always good to get a win on the road.”

Having to buy time, Spoelstra, with his team up one, opened the fourth quarter with Chris Bosh, Udonis Haslem, Rashard Lewis, Ray Allen and Norris Cole on the court. That group pushed the Heat to a nine-point lead.

Each had their moments, foremost Bosh, who finished with 24 points on 7-of-13 shooting from the field and 10-of-10 perfection from the line, his 19-foot jumper with 2:04 to play giving the Heat an 89-87 lead.

"There had to be some pick up for the offense," Bosh said of playing in Wade's absence, "and I wanted to make sure to do my part."

Of players with at least 350 shots, the NBA's worst two-point percentages last season belonged to Charlotte Bobcats guard Kemba Walker, .393; Indiana Pacers forward Tyler Hansbrough, .409; Heat guard Norris Cole, .414; and the Heat's Udonis Haslem, .423.

Friday 8:30 p.m.: Georgia Southern at Valparaiso: Another sneaky good individual matchup as GSU’s Eric Ferguson goes head-to-head with Valpo’s Ryan Broekoff.
Some ‘under the radar’ individual battles to keep tabs on tonight--CollegeBasketballTalk
Eric Ferguson (Georgia Southern) vs. Ryan Broekhoff (Valparaiso)
While Broekhoff (reigning Horizon League POY) had the better perimeter shooting and rebounding numbers of the two last season, Ferguson’s been hard at work to improve his ball-handling and perimeter skill set during the offseason. Valparaiso will once again be one of the favorites in the Horizon, but if Georgia Southern is to reach the point of contending with Davidson and Charleston it will be Ferguson who leads the way.
