On a night where Kentucky convincingly got their revenge on South Carolina, other teams were in action as well.
Who made the best of Thursday night? Who missed a late season opportunity?
Kentucky (27-1, 12-1)
Devan Downey had 26 points, but it was all about the Wildcats at Rupp last night. An 82-61 victory over the Gamecocks helped avenge their only loss of the season.
Northwestern (18-10, 7-9)
It was a night to remember for Northwestern. Their 74-57 victory over Iowa last night was their 18th win of the season and a new school record for wins in a single season.
Wofford (22-8, 14-3)
Wofford’s win over Charleston last night put them one game up with one game to go in the Southern Conference. They won 74-68 at home.
Morehead State (20-9, 14-3)
Nothing like finally handing Murray State their first loss in the OVC. Kenneth Faried recorded a double-double in the win.
Gonzaga (23-5, 11-2)
The Zags clinched at least a share of their 10th straight West Coast Conference regular season title with an 88-51 thumping of Santa Clara.
Tulsa (19-9, 8-5)
A non-conference game in late February at Duke? It probably would have been a huge boost if they had won, but they were never really in it, and it came at a point where the Golden Hurricanes need the Ws.
Indiana (9-18, 3-12)
Even playing at home against a ranked opponent isn’t enough to get Indiana playing well. They were smacked at Assembly Hall by 32 last night by Wisconsin.
College of Charleston (19-10, 13-4)
With the regular season conference championship up for grabs, the Cougars couldn’t win at Wofford. They will seek revenge in the Southern Conference Tournament.
Murray State (26-4, 16-1)
They probably didn’t have much of a chance for an at-large bid anyway, but now there is absolutely zero chance after they lost to Morehead State last night. They will have to earn their NCAA bid despite 26 wins.
