CBB/CUSA Notes - November 30

First of all, major props to Coach Monken and the USM football team. One of my all-time favorite wins as a Golden Eagle fan.

C-USA recap from 11/30/13

C-USA went .500 today (4-4 to be exact) in hoops today. MTSU's win over South Alabama was probably the marquee conference win of the day. The Blue Raiders came back from 8 down at halftime to get the win.

Worst loss from a C-USA team today goes to Marshall who lost to East Tennessee State by 10. Tom Herrion may be on the hot seat.

UTEP had a solid showing against #2 Kansas today in the Bahamas. The Miners' rally came short in a 4 point loss against the Jayhawks.

Tulane lost to SE Missouri by 30 in Mexico today. At least their football team is decent this year.

Other C-USA results: UW-Green Bay beat Tulsa, Rice beat Santa Clara, FIU beat Georgia State, and North Texas beat SE Louisiana.

Tomorrow's marquee C-USA game is #16 UNC travelling to Birmingham to take on a improved UAB team. It's a chance for C-USA to get an elite OOC win (even though UNC has some key players out).

Other notes from CBB

Houston Baptist went to West Point and beat Army in OT. (all of our opponent's wins counts toward our RPI, right?)

Rhode Island lost 61-54 to George Mason on the road. USM travels to URI later this year.

North Dakota State currently leads Rider in the 2nd half. Hopefully, the Bison hang on for the W.
