Razorbacks Men’s Basketball rumbles past SIU-Edwardsville, 99-65 in season opener


FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Fueled by a 31-4 first half run and five players in double figures, the University of Arkansas men’s basketball team opened the 2013-14 season and its 20th year in Bud Walton Arena with a 99-65 win over SIU-Edwardsville on Friday night.

The Razorbacks were firing on all cylinders with their #Fastest40 style of play, forcing the Cougars into 23 turnovers that resulted in a 33-3 edge in points off miscues, a 52 percent (33-64) night from the field and 42 points in the paint. Arkansas missed recording the seventh 100-point season-opening game in Bud Walton Arena history by one point.

“I’m proud of our guys’ effort tonight,” said head coach Mike Anderson, who improved to 12-0 all-time in season openers while leading the Razorbacks to their 19th straight season-opening win. “With our style, we need to build off of our defense and tonight we did that by capitalizing off turnovers. This is a team that will have a lot of balance throughout the year and I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s a different guy leading us every night.”

On this night, it was a pair of sophomores at the top of the five-man double figure scorers list for Arkansas, as Anthlon Bell poured in a career-high 18 points on the strength of 5-of-6 from three-point range. Highlighted by a pair of big dunks, Michael Qualls finished with 16 points and five rebounds. In all, the sophomore class supplied 46 points.

Making his debut as a Razorback, redshirt junior Alandise Harris came off the pine for 15 points to lead an Arkansas bench that contributed 42 points.  Senior Mardracus Wade supplied his 33rd career double figure scoring game with 11 points in 15 minutes.

Arkansas’ leading returning scorer and rebounder, senior Coty Clarke led the way on the glass with eight caroms that were part of a 42-34 advantage for the Razorbacks. Included in those 42 rebounds were 16 on the offensive end, as nine different players grabbed an offensive rebound. Clarke also added 10 points to round out the double-digit scorers.

Trailing 10-7 early in the game, Arkansas embarked on a game-changing 31-4 run that absorbed nearly 10 minutes. Over the run that saw the Razorbacks score 10 straight to open and 12 in a row to close, Arkansas came away with points on 13-of-18 possessions, went 10-of-15 from the field and saw seven different players score.

Thanks to the run, the Razorbacks took a 56-27 lead into the locker room behind 19-of-35 shooting from the floor and 20 points off SIUE turnovers. Bell scored 12 of his 18 points in the opening half, while Harris’s 11 led the rotation off the bench that nearly out-scored the Cougars on their own (26-27).

The Razorback lead never dipped below 24 points in the second half, reaching as high as 38, 99-61, with 40 seconds to play.

SIU-Edwardsville was led by Tim Johnson’s 13 points, while it shot 39 percent (25-64) from the floor.

Arkansas will return to Bud Walton Arena on Friday, Nov. 15, when it hosts Louisiana. Tip is slated for 7 p.m. The game is part of the EA SPORTS Maui Invitational, which the Razorbacks will take part in Nov. 25-27.

UC Men’s Basketball beats North Carolina Central, 74-61

CINCINNATI - Sean Kilpatrick (Yonkers, N.Y./Notre Dame Prep) scored 22 while Titus Rubles (Dallas, Texas/Blinn College) and Jermaine Sanders (Far Rockaway, N.Y./Rice) added 13 apiece as the University of Cincinnati men’s basketball team earned a 74-61 win over North Carolina Central in the season opener for both squads, Friday at Fifth Third Arena.

The Bearcats (1-0) never trailed after the 8:39 mark of the first half and moved to 92-21 all-time in season openers, including an 81-10 mark on the home court.

Sanders’ 13 set a career high, while Kilpatrick tallied his 19th career 20-point game. Rubles just missed his career scoring high of 14 but added eight rebounds. Kilpatrick continued his climb up UC’s career scoring chart, moving into 15th place with 1,466 points.

Justin Jackson (Cocoa Beach, Fla./Arlington Country Day) finished with eight points, three rebounds and three blocked shots.

After NCCU (0-1) pulled within five with just over seven minutes remaining, UC closed the final 6:44 on a 12-4 run which featured six points from Kilpatrick and four from Sanders.

The Eagles had crept back from a 15-point deficit with 16:17 remaining by using a 10-2 run over 3:34 to pull the margin to 62-57 with 7:04 remaining. Their comeback hopes were dealt a blow when Jeremy Ingram fouled out with 6:19 left. Ingram departed after scoring a game-high 27 points.

Jay Copeland also found double figures, scoring 11 points and grabbing eight rebounds before fouling out with 4:12 remaining. Foul trouble was an issue for the visitors, as Jordan Parks also fouled out for the Eagles, while another pair of NCCU players finished the game with four fouls.

After trailing by as many as eight early, UC outscored NCCU 34-12 over the final 12 minutes of the first half to build a 40-26 lead at the break.

Nine players scored in the opening 20 minutes for the Bearcats, who tallied 14 second-chance points off of 11 offensive rebounds and converted 11 points off nine Eagles’ turnovers. The UC bench also out-scored the NCCU reserves, 23-13.

Cincinnati continues a seven-game homestand to open this season on Tuesday, Nov. 12, welcoming NC State in for a 5 p.m. ET tipoff inside Fifth Third Arena. The Bearcats and Wolfpack are part of ESPN’s College Hoops Tip-Off Marathon.

Due to the unusual tip time, fans are encouraged to arrive early to Fifth Third Arena to avoid traffic delays. Tickets are available by visiting or calling 1-877-CATS-TIX.

Holton Hunsaker led Utah Valley (1-0) with 18 points in the game while Zach Nelson recorded a double-double in his Wolverine debut. The redshirt freshman scored 13 points and grabbed 10 boards in 31 minutes of action.

Trailing IUPUI 12-11 with 13:26 remaining, Hunsaker converted a pair of free throws to put UVU up for good. But the Wolverines could never get quite comfortable against a determined IUPUI (0-1) team as their lead reached double digits only one time in the game.

Box Score

PULLMAN, Wash.-(CSUB Media Relations) Trailing by as many as 18 in the second half and struggling from the free throw-line the Bakersfield Roadrunners battled back within two points with less than two minutes remaining but the Washington State Cougars held on for the 62-56 win Friday night at Beasley Coliseum.

“Obviously we’re disappointed because we came here to win,” said head coach Rod Barnes. “But I’m proud of the way our kids battled back on the road, the free throws just hurt us too much tonight.”

Emporia State 81, Kansas City 76
Box Score

Kansas City, Mo.– (UMKC Media Relations) The UMKC men’s basketball team set a school record with 53 free throw attempts on Friday afternoon against Emporia State, but only 66 percent made it in the bucket as the Hornets spoiled the ‘Roos season opener, 81-76.

The previous record was 52 free throw attempts against Tennessee State on January 8, 1990. The ‘Roos (0-1) struggled to score in the game, hitting only 35.8 percent of its shots from the floor. They did out-rebound the Hornets 42-36 and force 20 miscues, but in the end ESU hit 10 more shots and tallied 42 points in the paint.

#24 Indiana 100, Chicago State 72
Box Score

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. –(CSU Media Relations) Early foul trouble and a cold shooting hand from beyond the arc contributed to a 100-72 season-opening loss for Chicago State men’s basketball at No. 24 Indiana on Friday (Nov. 8) evening at Assembly Hall.

The story of the game was fouls and free throws. By halftime six Cougars earned multiple fouls with senior Eddie Denard (Chicago, Ill./Foreman) and freshman Kurt Karis (Northbrook, Ill./Glenbrook North ) each committing three personals in the half. Indiana converted those fouls to an 18-23 performance at the free throw line in the first half.

Loyola Marymount 78, Grand Canyon 75
Box Score

San Diego, Calif.-(GCU Media Relations) The game that has been eagerly anticipated in all GCU circles since its formal announcement last November for inclusion into Division I certainly did not disappoint, as the Grand Canyon University men’s basketball team showed it does belong after a hard-fought 78-75 loss to Loyola Marymount at the Jenny Craig Pavilion in San Diego, Calif.

The game was the season opener for both squads.

The Antelopes, who trailed by 12 at the half, rallied from as many as 14 down in the second half to take a three-point lead (70-67) with 2:23 remaining.

Sam Houston State 77, Texas-Pan American 73
Box Score

EDINBURG – (UTPA Media Relations) Down 14 with just over eight minutes remaining, the University of Texas-Pan American Broncs men’s basketball team went on a furious rally to pull within one in the final seconds before ultimately falling to the Sam Houston State University Bearkats 77-73 on Friday at the UTPA Fieldhouse in front of a crowd of 1,257.

Down 57-43, senior Justin Leathers made a jumper, sophomore Shaquille Hines made a pair of free throws and junior Shaquille Boga nailed a jumper to bring the Broncs (0-1) within eight. The Broncs and Bearkats (1-0) mostly traded baskets and free throws over the next seven minutes, but the Broncs outscored the Bearkats 22-15 to pull within 72-71 on a pair of Leathers free throws with 19.3 seconds remaining. After Jabari Peters hit a pair of free throws, senior Hurley Johnson made a layup to again bring the Broncs within one with 7.1 seconds left. With 6.0 seconds left, Peters went back to the line, and after making the first shot, missed the second, but Kaheem Ransom came up with the offensive rebound and made two free throws with 1.5 seconds left to put the game on ice.

Western Michigan 70, New Mexico State 64
Box Score

HONOLULU – (NMSU Media Relations) The New Mexico State men’s basketball team fell 70-64 to Western Michigan in the season-opener, Friday, Nov. 8, on day one of the Outrigger Hotels and Resorts Rainbow Classic. The Aggies start the year 0-1 and Western Michigan moves to 1-0.

The difference in the game could have been NM State’s 62.5 shooting percentage from the free throw line, including a big miss from the charity stripe in the last minute of play, and WMU’s efficiency from the 3-point arc, going 10-of-25 (40%) to score 30 of its 70 points. The Aggies did, however, have more points in the paint (28-16), more points off turnovers (13-4), more second-chance points (26-13) and more points from the bench (18-12).



Ohio State women’s basketball player Raven Ferguson to miss first three games of season

Raven Ferguson

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Kevin McGuff, Ohio State head women’s basketball coach, announced today that junior guard Raven Ferguson will sit out the first three games of the regular season for a violation of team rules.

Ferguson will miss the games at West Virginia (Nov. 8) and vs. FAU (Nov. 10) and VCU (Nov. 14). She can return Nov. 17 at Georgia.


“I’ve really enjoyed getting to know Raven and having the opportunity to coach her, so it makes this extremely disappointing,” McGuff said. “She is a good kid, but her actions have not been in line with what the standards of this program are and will be in the future. Hopefully she can make some behavioral changes, and after this suspension, come back and make a positive impact on our program.”


Ferguson is one of three returning starters for the Buckeyes. She averaged 6.3 points and 3.2 rebounds as a sophomore in 2012-13. She scored 12 points and grabbed a team-high eight rebounds in the exhibition win over Bellarmine Sunday.


The Buckeyes open the regular season at 5:30 p.m. Friday at West Virginia.
