CBB – another top 5 team goes down on the road

Wednesday night college basketball and another top 5 team bites the dust on the road.  The Big Ten is something else this year, I gotta say!  4 Michigan falls to Penn State, 84 – 78 with Penn State winning their first Big Ten game of the year.  5 Miami ran all over Virginia Tech, 76 – 58 and looks forward to their visit on Saturday to Cameron Indoor Stadium to take on 3 Duke.  (Duke is in action tonight against Virginia, on the road!).  7 Georgetown outlasted U Conn in double OT, 79 – 78.  And I know it is not 25 action, but Georgia Tech hammered Maryland at home last night, 78 – 68.  The score sounds closer than it actually was.  GT looked really good at home, Robert Carter, Jr. aced a double double.  Also impressive for the Jackets Brandon Reed, Kam Holsey, Daniel Miller, Marcus Georges-Hunt.  They are a young team mixed with a couple of juniors and one senior.  Brian Gregory has the team moving in the right direction (especially in the classroom).  GT is likely a year away from being once again competitive in the ACC.  Looking forward to it after the tough years GT round ball fans have endured…remember the glory days of Bobby Cremins, even the early Hewitt years?
