Thanks for posting that summary.  For those in the Chicago or St. Louis area, those times are EST.

I am looking forward to the Chicago game at Illinois Wesleyan.  The Titans already have two exhibitions in the books and get the game at home, but Chicago did travel to Spain as a team a few months ago.  The Titans have the best player, but the Maroons have a real shot at the upset.

I am not sure what we will see on Saturday in St. Louis, other than a lot of three point attempts.

Live stats only for NYU vs. Purchase College as the Violets trail at the half.

The Violets are missing three potential starters from the live stats.

Freshman Cade Hoppe has 6 points in 10 minutes.  Looking forward to watching him play at some point.

Spartans open season defeating Albion, a second tier MIAA team, 89-80.

Massiulionis scored 23, although he sat awhile seemingly from a physical issue.  The big surprise though was Hollis who matched with a career-high 23 of his own on a perfect night shooting (7-7 and 9-9) and 9 boards. Hansen also had double figures with 14.

As can be expected from an opener a lot of guys saw action. Six freshmen saw action, led by Newton with 9. At one point midway through the second half there were four freshmen on the floor for CWRU. Bittner started at PG in the absence to injury of Volkening. Fellow FY Flynn logged 18 minutes, most for a rookie.

NYU ended up defeating Purchase, 93-88 thanks largely to Jule Brown, Bobby Hawkinson, and Alex Casieri who each finished with 21 points. Casieri of course was playing in his first ever game at the collegiate level (fantasy watch alert).  Casieri was 4-6 from three. 

Interestingly, Brown was 3-5 from three point range and he was among the last players NYU wanted taking the three last season.

Washington University begins the Pat Juckem-era right with a 91-62 win over Illinois College. 

The Bears had some initial problems defending Trae Robinson, but they cracked that code in the second, holding Robinson to two second-half points.

Lots of things to like including 20 assists, 20+ in rebounding and only 5 turnovers in the first 35 minutes.  Admittedly, they added 4 more in the final 5 minutes.

Starting line-up and first off the bench with players rotating among positions...

The UAA finished the weekend 5-1, so not too shabby.

Chicago lost on the road against No 19. Illinois Wesleyan (documented elsewhere), 81-73 while Emory won on the road against Piedmont.  Matt Davet finished with 25 points and 6 rebounds (I told you guys!) and Lawrence Rowley finished with 16 points and 10 rebounds.

The UAA moves to 6-2 after two games last night.

Rochester defeated cross-town rival RIT, 68-43 in a game that featured contributions most of the roster.

Carnegie Mellon lost to Chatham, 88-70, a team they had destroyed a season ago.  Seth Henry finished with 26 points and 11 rebounds.  Zach Howarth finished with 18 points.

They absolutely smoked Chatham last year.  Not sure what else happened.  I started watching that game, but the announcers were neglecting the play by play in favor of commentary.  It was just too hard to watch.

Webster University defeats Washington University, 72-64.

Every loss is a tough loss, but there were sure to be blemishes on the record this season.  It is easy to forget, but only two players on the roster averaged 10+ minutes last season.

I do not believe in good losses, but the Bears needed a big challenge after the easy-peasy win on Saturday.  They got it.  16 turnovers and lots to work on.

Not to say that every game is going to turn on three-pointers, but the Bears are not going to win a lot when they shoot 22% (4-18) from the three point range despite good look after good look.  They will also not win a lot when the opponent is shooting 53% from the perimeter.  Webster did not take a lot, but they connected on 7-13.

Washington University did get one big win today as 6'8 Spencer Boehm (New Trier) signed today.  Boehm was weighing offers from Dartmouth and Columbia.  The Bears will have at least 5 Chicagoland players on the roster next season.

By the way, I am calling it now: first-year PG Charlie Jacob is going to be a stud.

Looked like WashU’s game plan played right in to Webster’s strengths.  A head scratcher for sure.

I was really impressed with Justin Hardy. Also, I knew Jack Nolan could shoot (in spite of an off night last night) but did not realize how good he is at ball handling, penetration, passing, and defense.

Since Webster is also a relatively young team (only one senior on the roster, who didn't play last njght), this could be another good game next season.

Hardy is very impressive.  The only reason I have not talked much about his play through the first two games is that he came in with so much preseason hype.

Also, I knew Jack Nolan could shoot (in spite of an off night last night) but did not realize how good he is at ball handling, penetration, passing, and defense.

Nolan had the assist of the season last year (in my mind) and was often called to defend Romin Williams and other guards, but through the first two games of this season, he is definitely showcasing more of his talents.

In my mind, a lot of those threes came off WashU defensive lapses.  There was an energy missing on the defensive end from the Illinois College game and it hurt them.

The UAA has had a good weekend so far.

NYU defeated Sarah Lawrence, 82-66. Not particularly exciting, but at least the have two of the three injured seniors back.  Jimmy Martinelli scored 18 points while Dom Cristiano registered 14 points and 16 rebounds.

Emory got the win over Staten Island, 86-88 and then destroyed Keuka 109-73.  In the latter, Romin Williams went to work and scored 32 of 11-23 shooting.  Lawrence Rowley is averaging close to a double-double.

Rochester defeated Houghton (73-64) and Baldwin Wallace (64-55).  Jacob Wittig led the Yellowjackets in scoring in both games.

Carnegie Mellon lost to Penn State-Behrend on the road, 81-72.  Seth Henry had his second straight 20 plus scoring effort.  Its only two games, but Henry and Zach Howarth are both averaging above 20 points per games.

Case Western Reserve had wins over Franciscan (78-48) and Washington College 70-66).

Chicago and Claremont-Mudd-Scripps were locked in a low-scoring battle, but Chicago prevailed 51-43.  Jordan Baum is back and finished with 14 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists.

Brandeis defeated Bates, 54-48.  Still no Sabir.

In other news, Emory won the Women's Volleyball national championship while Washington University won the Women's Cross-Country national championship.
