We're over the hump and there was plenty of college hoops action Wednesday night. Here is a look around the mid-major nation:
- Far and away the performance of the night came from Delaware State guard Amere May. May flashed some scoring ability earlier this season when the Hornets took down Wake Forest in November and he dropped 32 points, but that was just the tip of the iceberg. May almost went for 50 last night scoring 48 points on a 16-25 performance from the field in a 72-64 win over St. Francis Brooklyn. May matched his performance from beyond the arc from Wake Forest going 6-for-10.
- Green Bay scored a 66-50 victory over Morehead State last night and the 8-2 Phoenix are just getting more and more ridiculous on the court. Check out this dish and dunk from Carrington Love to
- Sneaky good game in Norfolk last night between Old Dominion and Georgia State. It's hard to think of this an old CAA rematch because both teams have really blossomed in Conference USA and the Sun Belt already. ODU got the 58-54 win in overtime behind 21 points from Campbell transfer Trey Freeman. Ryan Harrow lead the Panthers with 16 points and 6 assists.
- Down South the game of the night was a SoCon versus Big South tilt between Charleston Southern and Wofford. The Terriers kept on rolling and our own John T. Roberts summed up the big non-conference win.
- George Mason picked up a 99-69 win over non-Division I Catawba last night but despite the win things went from bad to worse for the 3-6 Patriots. Senior big man Erik Copes has left the program for personal reasons. Copes was averaging about 5 points and 4 rebounds per game.
- Also more bad news for Siena as well. The Saints recently lost Mike Wolfe due to transfer and now the Jimmy Patsos squad will be without Lavon Long going into a Friday match up with Radford. Long is averaging 9.9 points, 5.8 rebounds and 2.5 assists this season and has been diagnosed with a high ankle sprain.
