11/9 recap

Signature wins:
Buffalo 99, @West Virginia 94 (OT) - Buffalo gets a win that they have sorely missed the past couple of years.  Their profile was always a signature win away from being at-large worthy.  They're there now

@Auburn 88, Washington 66 - this win should have a reasonable amount of value down the road
@Kentucky 71, Southern Illinois 59 - mid-table MVC teams hangs around with UK.  Margin of victory is a thing now, remember
Wichita St 83, @Providence 80 - losing these home games are bad for the resume; this is one way for WSU to crawl back to the bubble discussion
@Iowa St 76, Missouri 59 - we'll see if either teams matters in March
Longwood 63, @Richmond 58 - A-10 is having a really bad start to this year
@St Joseph's 79, Old Dominion 64 - finally, an A-10 team doing something noteworthy.  Critical quality win chance by the boards for ODU
Texas 73, Arkansas 71 (OT)

Dumb losses:
Stony Brook 83, @South Carolina 81
Northeastern 81, @Harvard 71 - that's a bit of a ding for a team that's favored in the Ivy
Furman 60, Loyola(Chi) 58 - wait, what?
UC Irvine 74, @Texas A&M 73
Yale 76, California 59

Road wins are never trivial:
North Carolina 116, @Elon 67
Stanford 72, @UNC Wilmington 59
Oklahoma 91, @UTRGV 76
