College Hoops Compenium: If College Basketball Had a BCS, Clemson Might Be #1

(18) Clemson 75, Georgia Tech 74. The Tigers are the only undefeated team left in the country after just about every team in the Top 25 lost yesterday. And it took Clemson a lay-up at the buzzer to hold off Georgia Tech. Tech is fresh off suspending their best scorer, Lewis Clinch, for the rest of the season because of some academic tomfoolery.

(17) Oregon 68, (1) UCLA 66. It's not every day that a January win leaves a college basketball coach in tears, but then again, it's not every day that Oregon beats the #1 team in the country. Aaron Brooks scored 25 points for the Ducks, but also had three turnovers, which just about right in line with what you'd expect from Aaron Brooks. North Carolina is probably your new #1 next week.


Washington State 77, (7) Arizona 72. When even Washington State is pulling off upsets like this, the Pac-10 just looks more and more frightening every day. Daven Harmeling had 28 for Wazzu, getting them started on the track to evening their all-time record against Arizona. Arizona held a slight edge, having won 41 of the last 42 meetings.

Virginia Tech 69, (5) Duke 67. That's Duke guard Greg Paulus in the picture, getting an upclose look at Deron Washington's taint. It's not often that a team goes into Cameron Indoor like that and gets to show off their taint, but the Hokies did it yesterday, getting some big missed free throws down the stretch from Duke.
