11/29 recap

Duke 91, @Indiana 81 - I wonder what deal everyone made with Duke to actually get them to play a true road game in the non-con
Miami 86, @Minnesota 81 - possibly the signature win of the contest, a road win at a probable tourney team, a near lock to be a Tier 1 win
@North Carolina 86, Michigan 71
@NC State 85, Penn St 78
Clemson 79, @Ohio St 65 - that's pretty ugly for OSU.  And the B1G just about ejected from this entire competition
@Nebraska 71, Boston College 62 - don't worry B1G, Nebraska's got your back

stuff of interest:
@TCU 87, Belmont 76
@Alabama 77, Louisiana Tech 74
Auburn 73, @Dayton 60 - road wins are never trivial, and it's time to get used to the SEC being more relevant in these bubble discussions
@St Joseph's 83, Bucknell 70 - Bucknell tried to bite off too much with their non-con
Vermont 71, @Richmond 65
@Northern Iowa 77, UNLV 68 (OT)
@Nevada 98, Illinois 68 - I'm officially on the Nevada bandwagon

quick hits:
A bunch of P6 schools holding over plucky mid majors this night.  For example:  Tennessee over Mercer....Providence over Rider...Stanford over Montana, UCLA over CSUB.  UConn elsewhere needed OT to beat Columbia, oof.
