    Just today:

    #8 UCLA lost to 13-14 Washington. UCLA had to come from behind late to defeat Washington State Friday night.
    #9 Mississippi State lost to 16-11 (6-8 SEC) Alabama
    #11 Arizona (missing Aari McDonald due to injury) lost to 16-11 (5-11 PAC) Colorado.
    #12 DePaul lost to 16-11 (10-6 Big East) Villanova
    #17 Florida State lost to unranked Georgia Tech (Fortner’s team has had a couple of very good conference wins)
    #22 Arkansas lost to unranked Florida

    With the possible exception of Georgia Tech, none of these losses were to teams likely to make the NCAA tournament.

    All of these games except MSU were on Senior Day. The Villanova game was not just their senior day, but Harry Perretta's final home game after coaching there for 42 years. Emotions run high on days like this and can skew results any which way, sometimes for good.

    From CDC's weekly newsletter:
    Our Women’s Basketball season continues to be a bit of a rollercoaster, but despite the many challenges Coach Aston and the team have faced, they continue to work hard and compete. After splitting a pair of home games last week — getting a solid win and season sweep of West Virginia (50-44) on Monday before dropping a tough one to Kansas State (60-54) on Saturday — our Horns sit in third-place in the Big 12. They will look to bounce back on the road at second-place and No. 25 TCU on Wednesday (6:30 p.m./FSSW+) before returning home looking for a season sweep of Oklahoma on Saturday (7 p.m./LHN).

    WVU was not a season sweep as we lost the first round with them.

    Ha a mistake like that doesn't exactly inspire confidence in the AD.

    Amazing that 8-6 is good enough for 3rd place.
