3 of the 4 power conference teams Michigan played in the non-con played ranked opponents and won tonight.
Unranked Villanova beat #24 St. Johns 76-71. They're the only undefeated team left in the Big East at 3-0 in conference.
#12 UNC just won at in-state rival #15 NC State 90-82. They're now 2-0 in conference.
Most surprisingly, unranked South Carolina just beat #14 Mississippi State 87-82 at home in OT. South Carolina entered conference play at 5-7 and has beaten Florida on the road and this game to move to 2-0 in conference.
- #6 MSU beat Purdue by 18 at home although Purdue gave them a run for most of the game.
- #20 Iowa State lost at unranked Baylor a game after ISU wrecked Kansas.
- #8 Texas Tech scraped by #23 Oklahoma at home 66-59. Tech is 3-0 and leads the Big 12 (only other undefeated is 1-0 TCU).
- Texas lost at previously 0-2 in conference OK St. At this point MSU's best non-con win is either neutral court over this mediocre (10-5) Texas team or at an even more mediocre (8-5) Florida team.
