Mid-Major Notes

  • UNLV had a tough week, falling to New Mexico and Fresno State, and almost losing to Colorado State. This week ended UNLV’s at large bid chances and knocked them out of the poll.
  • CS Fullerton had a short stay in the Mid Major Top-25, as they lost to UCSB by 19.
  • Belmont knocks off Murray State to take control of the Ohio Valley, and FGCU does the same to hold on the top spot in the A-Sun. Both teams enter the top-25.
  • ETSU remains on top of the SoCon undefeated, after beating Furman by one away from home.
  • Middle Tennessee loses in conference for the first time to Marshall, but makes up for it by beating Western Kentucky. Marshall ended a great week with an overtime win over UAB as the top of the C-USA remains tight.
  • LA-Lafayette is now 7-0 in Sun Belt play, and they have a great win at UT-Arlington.
  • Wright State loses in Milwaukee for their first in conference loss, resulting in a tie with Northern Kentucky at the top of Horizon League.
  • Nevada wins the first battle in the very top of the Mountain West as they beat Boise State at home.
  • Hawaii proves they are the top dog in the Big West with a nice win over UCSB.
  • Penn puts up a great effort in non-conference loss to Temple. The Quakers effort allowed them to stay in the poll.
  • Albany has a huge day in an 83-39 win over UMBC, who only had seven losses on the season coming in. Albany still has struggled in conference play, but this win helped in their chase of Vermont.
  • Campbell comes out of nowhere to almost take the lead of the Big South. If Campbell finds a way to win the Big South Tournament, look out for them in the big dance, because they have a guy named Chris Clemons, who could single-handedly carry Campbell to a major upset in March Madness.
