News On The Horizon 11/9/2013

College Basketball Preview: New teams in new leagues in 2013-14--Eye On College Basketball
The Tiny Teams
Horizon League

In: Oakland

Out: Loyola (Ill.)

Total teams in conference: Nine

Comment: Upgrade for the Horizon, even if small. Oakland under Greg Kampe has been perenially solid, making the NCAAs a few times as well. This league is quintessential mid-major college hoops -- and that's a good thing. Always one or two teams every year able to make a splash.

While the Tar Heels were rolling, Oakland shot 21 percent (6 for 29) in the half and couldn't match UNC's early energy.

Oakland coach Greg Kampe, in his 30th season, said his team was "shell-shocked" early.

"They made tough shots but they also got a lot of easy ones," Kampe said. "And then we start taking bad shots, which was leading to runouts and easy plays. And we couldn't stop the snowball from going."

Travis Bader scored 18 for the Golden Grizzlies, whose difficult first month will include games against No. 2 Michigan State, No. 15 Gonzaga and No. 22 UCLA.
