SEC B’Ball Teams Go 3-1 Last Night

Here’s a quick recap of SEC hoops action from Tuesday night…

Georgia 61, Notre Dame 57

The Bulldogs captured third place in the Kansas City-basd CBE Classic tournament with a rebound victory over Notre Dame last night.  The Dawgs had been crushed the night before by California, and Mark Fox’s young squad showed some spunk in bouncing back.  Freshman Kentavious Caldwell-Pope — whose long name I’m going to get tired of typing this season — led UGA with 16 points.

Memphis 99, Tennessee 97 in 2 OT

The Volunteers aren’t getting wins, but they are proving to be a lot more competitive than a team picked for 11th place in the 12 team SEC.  A night after hanging with #6 Duke, UT fought back from a 16-point deficit and extended #8 Memphis into double-overtime before falling.  Forward Jeronne Maymon finished the night with 32 points and 20 rebounds (including a 16 of 17 night at the charity stripe).

South Carolina 61, Mississippi Valley State 57

After losses to Elon and Tennessee State, Carolina coach Darrin Horn didn’t need to do further damage to his resume with a loss to Mississippi Valley State.  Luckily for the coach, Malik Cooke scored 18 points and spurred (pun intended) the Gamecocks to a late really.  USC finished the game on a 22-7 run after trailing the now 0-4 Delta Devils by 11 with six minutes to play.

Arkansas 67, Utah Valley 59

Admission: In 40 years of following college sports, I’d never heard of the Utah Valley Wolverines until this week.  The fact that Arkansas trailed them 58-54 at home with less than four minutes to play tells you just how much the Hogs are struggling without leading scorer Marshawn Powell — out for the season with a knee injury.  The Razorbacks finished the game on a 13-1 run and were led by freshman guard BJ Young who recorded 18 points and 11 rebounds on the night.
