News On The Horizon 2/7/2016

Saturday Notes – February 6, 2016--Hoopville
Oakland 67, Cleveland State 57: Significant in this win by the Golden Grizzlies that keeps them right in the race in the Horizon League is that Kahlil Felder didn’t lead them in scoring – it was Jalen Hayes, who had a big double-double with 15 points and 14 rebounds. Felder had 13 and 11 assists for a double-double of his own.

PREGAME SHOOTAROUND: A huge Saturday of hoops--CollegeBasketballTalk
2. No. 10 Michigan State seemed to find their stride last week, as Denzel Valentine returned to his Player of the Year caliber form while Bryn Forbes and Matt Costello have been playing some of their best basketball of the season. The Spartans will pay a visit to rival Michigan at 2:00 p.m., and while the Wolverines have picked off Maryland in Ann Arbor without Caris LeVert, they’re coming off of a blowout loss in the same building to Indiana.

Valparaiso (KenPom: 23, RPI: 36): The Crusaders beat one of the four-worst teams in college basketball on Saturday. Just playing that game is going to hurt their profile. I think the Crusaders are a top 40 teams in college basketball, but they want to make sure they win the automatic bid.

This would have been an ideal year for “mid majors” to find a spot in the Field of 68. Unfortunately, few have taken advantage of the opportunity. Monmouth, Valparaiso, Chattanooga, and maybe Arkansas-Little Rock, are about the only outfits that are likely to appear under Best of the Rest when Bubble Talk resumes.
