A delicious matchup on paper was as advertised, with Oregon at home holding off Valparaiso 73-67. Dillon Brooks was the difference with a career-high 26 points and 13 rebounds for the Ducks,
Colorado State is now 3-0 and has two wins that may look mighty good come March. The Rams earlier did something on the road that North Carolina couldn’t do-beat Northern Iowa-and last night CSU held off Oakland 95-89.
Today’s menu:
The Gulf Coast Showcase opens in Florida with a field of eight mid-level programs but quite a few interesting matchups. Quarterfinals on Monday include Murray State against Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Duquesne-recent blowout winner over Penn State-against Pepperdine, Drake against Western Kentucky in a contest recalling one of the very best games of the 2008 NCAA Tournament and Central Michigan vs. Weber State.

Cleveland State (1-2): The undersized Vikings are finding it tough to score. In Division I games, CSU scored 53 against Akron and 45 against Rhode Island. The one player who has shown promise, forward Demonte Flannigan as an inside presence, delivered 11 against Akron and four against Rhode Island. Another player starting to show some offensive promise is freshman guard Rob Edwards, who had eight against Akron and 16 against Rhode Island.

The one player who has yet to get untracked, and is sorely needed, is 6-8 senior Vinny Zollo. He is the inside-out presence the Vikings could really use, but so far has only scored a combined six points against Akron and Rhode Island. The upcoming games against Rider, Maryland and Toledo will show if CSU can get some offensive rhythm going.
