VCU was up by 11 in the second half and lost it by 4 at the end. Very athletic team. They'll be hard to beat.

Loyola was tied with Tulsa at halftime on the other side of the Myrtle Beach bracket but got blown out in the 2nd half, losing 85-66. That's a bad loss; Tulsa was picked to finish 10th in the AAC.

I'm sure the URI gang is going to turn it around but Archie Miller is out there getting smoked.

Wisconsin held on against Dayton, 43-42 in Bermuda. UD had the ball with a chance to win, but passed it around the perimeter too long and never got a good shot.

Harvard may be good but Loyola seems to be underwhelming so far (61-55).

Dayton and Loyola are having very disappointing season so far. With Dayton, it's mostly injuries. Hate to see that. Don't know what to think of Loyola. Just not as good as expected? Nice win for Davidson today, though.
Not A10, but Towson lost to a winless Fairfield team. And S. Florida took a while to pull away from St. Francis, but eventually did.

Not A10, but worth mentioning.

Bryant 73, Syracuse 72.

The Bulldogs had 3 rotation players ejected, 2 of their 3 best players foul out, and made a shot with .8 left for the upset.
5-1 on the season. Congrats to @Coach_Grasso11, who got his revenge on Jim Boeheim today.

69, can you provide some more context?

1) What do they mean that Grasso got his revenge on Boeheim? I'm not aware of their history
2) Do you know why the players got ejected? I know that Grasso is fiery, his players have an edge to them, and I remember the conference championship game last year that had a fracas and ejections, but I didn't follow this game yesterday

I was very anti-Grasso during the coach search last offseason, and even though his teams win, I'm still glad we didn't hire him. Seems like a total dink.

^ Here's the Bryant write-up on the game.
https://www.bryantbulldogs.com/sports/m ... 1126tkmj84

As for the ejections, players left the bench after a slapping altercation:
In between, tempers flared following an offensive foul on Syracuse. A Syracuse player slapped a Bryant player and the Bryant player slapped him back. Following the scuffle, three Bryant players and one Syracuse player were ejected.
It looks like the feud goes back to 2020.

Oh man, good stuff. Thanks. That also reaffirms my long-standing opinion that Jim Boeheim is a total a-hole
