What Happened Last Night
- Alabama 76, Charleston Southern 46: This was about as boring as it sounds: Alabama was up 40-15 at halftime and held Charleston Southern to 46 points in a 74-possession game. That’s a mind-boggling 0.62 points per possession, and granted Charleston Southern isn’t very good, but... wow. Freshman Braxton Key led the way with 14 points in just 19 minutes of action.
- Vanderbilt 83, Tennessee State 59: Vanderbilt shot 54 percent from the floor, including 10-of-23 from three-point range, in what turned out to be a fairly easy win over a previously unbeaten Tennessee State team. Four Commodores scored in double figures with Matthew Fisher-Davis leading the way with 22 points.
- Auburn 90, USC Upstate 83: Auburn got outrebounded 52-41 and shot 7-of-32 from three-point range, but managed to come out with a win thanks to 23 points from Mustapha Heron and 15 from LaRon Smith.
- LSU 84, Houston 65: LSU continues to be completely unpredictable, demolishing a previously-undefeated Houston team behind 23 points from Antonio Blakeney — granted, Blakeney took 23 shots -- and 16 from Brandon Sampson; freshman Skylar Mays had 11 assists in the win.

Well then. Georgia hosts Morehouse tonight; Morehouse is a Division 2 team and decent for that level (they’re 4-2 on the season), but they lost an exhibition game to Ole Miss by 24 earlier this month; this likely won’t be a competitive game. The real game to watch is Middle Tennessee at Ole Miss: you might have heard of MTSU, which pulled a massive upset in last year’s NCAA Tournament, and has former Arkansas Razorback Jacorey Williams averaging 21.7 ppg.
