After rallying from down 17 to take the lead, Oregon State (8-10) didn't have enough left to withstand a final Oregon push. Tied at 48 the Ducks went on an 11-4 run.

Mercer (8-13) won their second straight, 70-54 over Devry. Rodney Walters' 22 led the way for the Vikings.

In a matchup between teams from Wisconsin and Chicagoland that's drawing a touch less attention than the one at Solider Field, Northwestern hosts the UW Badgers. The start time for this game was moved up in deference to the NFC Championship.

Who is Princeton?

Early in the 2010-11 season, with the Tigers holding a 2-3 record after a pair of last second losses during James Madison's subregional of the College Basketball Experience, I looked at five concerns these first five games had raised.

Georgetown 80 Seton Hall 75.

Box Score

Postgame audio - Coach John Thompson III, Julian Vaughn, Austin Freeman & Chris Wright:

Georgetown was unable to stop Seton Hall on 11 consecutive defensive possessions, yet the Hoyas put the ball in the basket often enough themselves to stay within striking distance of the Pirates throughout the second half of Tuesday's second half in Newark.

Seton Hall either scored or went to the free throw line every time they had the ball from the 8:53 mark until the final two minutes.

"At our next practice, I don't know if we're going to do anything else than play one-on-one," said Georgetown head coach John Thompson III. "We did a very poor job at the defensive end."
