Laughable Scores--College Basketball--January
Since I didn't see a thread about it, I took the liberty of starting one for the New Year of the 2019-20 season.

January 1

San Jose State 88, New Mexico 85---Coming in, the Lobos were 13-2 while the Spartans were just 4-10. Didn't see this one coming, even though it was played at SJSU.

UNLV 70, Utah State 53---The Runnin' Rebels have been fairly pedestrian and lackluster under first-year head coach T.J. Otzelberger, but they played like champions at home as they whipped the Aggies, defending Mountain West Champs and pre-season favorites. UNLV goes to 7-8; Utah State falls to 13-3.


January 2

SIU-Edwardsville 79, Belmont 69---The Bruins were 23 point favorites coming into this one, and justifiably so. The Cougars were 3-10 coming into the game and had just one win over Division 1 competition (a 2-point win against Incarnate Word). SIU-E put five players in double figures to spring the upset, making the crowd in Music City tone deaf in the process. Belmont goes to 9-5 with the loss.

UCLA 66, Washington 64---In Seattle, the Bruins surprised the Huskies. In late November, Seth Greenberg said under the right circumstances, Washington was a legitimate Final 4 team. Now, I love Seth. He's a good analyst, but when he made that comment, it took me 3 hours to find my eyeballs after they popped out of their sockets and rolled away from me on the floor. Washington drops to 10-4 with the loss. UCLA, home losers to the likes of Hofstra and Fullerton State, improved to 8-6.

Texas-Arlington 73, Arkansas State 52---The Mavericks and Red Wolves have scored some nice non-conference wins over the past few seasons, but UT-A is considerably down this year by comparison, at least record-wise. They went to Jonesboro just 4-9, but they put together a heck of a performance to post a 73-52 beating on their hosts. Arkansas State goes to 10-4. UT-Arlington is now 5-9.

UTA won 72 games in 3 years and fired their coach because their AD wanted to become "the next Gonzaga".

The SIU game on Thursday was the 4th 1% KP game I believe.

This Belmont squad isn’t as good as some of the more recent teams, but, wow, what a loss. Belmont dropped 32 spots in NET; SIU-E was the sixth worst team in D1 going in. The win now has them as the sixteenth worst.

This SIU-E team...may be Chicago State’s only D1 win. They go and beat Belmont on their floor?! Again, just wow.

I've been a Belmont follower since the early 1980s. This has to rank as the most mind-boggling loss since then.

I've seen only bits and pieces of Bruin games this year so I don't know the problem. New coaching staff. Lost Dylan Windler. Some holes to be filled it would seem.

This might end up being a very average BU team. Hope I'm proved wrong.

UCLA has fallen so far it's laughable when they beat someone.

I don’t think of UCLA as a “blue blood” program anymore, kinda like Minnesota or Pitt their nation championships feel so long ago. I just don’t understand how a place with so much talent in their backyard can get away.

AAC had 2 upsets yesterday
USF beat UConn 75-60.
Tulane beat Cincy 76-71. Guess Ron Hunter's move from Georgia St was a good one. They are now #114 in the NET.

I'll give you laughable. Memphis, Indiana, North Carolina, DePaul and Vanderbilt — each of which I strongly pull for — all lost yesterday.

Oddly, I was laughing out of misery last night as I quaffed a fine craft ale from Asheville, N.C., to ease the pain.

The Titans victory helped ease the pain of multiple college hoops losses. Now Tennessee plays at Baltimore. A very tough task looms.

Drake’s throwbacks on CBSSN might be the best uniforms I’ve seen. Ever.

Apparently they wore them last year, it won an award, so they brought them back:

They copied the old Kansas City/Sacramento Kings jersey. Here's Chris Webber wearing it many years ago.
