College Hoops Compendium: UCLA Is Kinda Good

(2) UCLA 73, (12) Arizona 69. UCLA's now lost three straight Pac-10 games for the first time since Lute Olson's hair was... actually, I think that guy was born with a full head of shiny silver hair. It may actually just be a chrome plate at this point. UCLA didn't even have Luc Richard Mbah a Moute for this one, making it all the more impressive.

(7) Ohio State 82, Iowa 63. Greg Oden registered a career-high 29 points. Iowa coach Steve Alford called him a "super talent." Thad Matta said he was "tremendous." Oden deflected all the praise onto his teammates. He then walked every elderly fan home, pleasured all the young ladies in the crowd, delivered a baby, built OSU a brand new science department brick-by-brick, and got Troy Smith to smile for the first time in a couple of weeks.

Texas Tech 69, (5) Kansas 64. Darryl Dora, he of the 5.2-point-per-game average, came out of nowhere with a big game against the 5th-ranked Jayhawks. Dora explored the studio space for 19 points, Martin Zeno had 14, and Jarious Jackson had 15, though he failed to register anything in any other statistical category except turnovers. Texas A&M is up next for Texas Tech. Speaking of which...

(8) Texas A&M 67, (14) Oklahoma State 49. Not a bad day when you can beat the #14 team in the country by 18 points. Acie Law had 16 for the Aggies, while Antanas Kavaliauskas chipped in 14. Kavaliauskus got his nose bloodied in the first half and had a groin issue in the second half, but played through it.
