News On The Horizon 11/24/2015

The Morning Dish – Tuesday, November 24, 2015--Hoopville
In the Gulf Coast Showcase, Murray State defeated Wisconsin-Milwaukee 66-63 when the Panthers’ tying three-pointer was ruled just after the buzzer. The Racers will now face Pepperdine, which topped Duquesne 84-70. Drake then edged Western Kentucky 81-79 in overtime behind the individual performance of the night-41 points from Kale Abrahamson. The Bulldogs now get Weber State, which slowed down Central Michigan in a 64-60 win. The Big Sky Conference is quietly putting together some nice wins early on.
Today’s menu: The day is heavy on tournament action
The best non-tournament game has Valparaiso at Oregon State. The Crusaders continue a hellacious early season schedule. If they can win one of two at the Pac-12 schools in Oregon, call that a success.

Another to watch -- Valparaiso at Oregon State -- 9 ET, PAC12

Can Valparaiso pull off against Oregon State what it barely couldn't at Oregon? It wouldn't be a surprise at all. The Crusaders are a terrific group defensively with experience all over the floor and a genuine star on the mid-major level in Alec Peters. On the other side, the Beavers figure to be much better this season and contend for an NCAA Tournament bid. Gary Payton II is one of the best defensive players in the country, and he's surrounded by more shooting and offense than last season. This is going to be a hard-nosed defensive game that could go either way.

On Sunday, the Crusaders didn't have enough to win at Oregon, but they get another crack at a Pac-12 NCAA contender this evening. Both squads have already handily defeated Iona in home games as part of this event.

The defending NEC Tournament champions have yet to win a game, as they lost by 12 at Air Force to start their participation in this round-robin on Sunday. Tonight, the Colonials will face a difficult contest against a fellow 2015 NCAA qualifier, one who's just lost once—to archrival New Mexico—in their first four.
