Jacksonville (1-1) @ New Mexico (0-1, Conf D): Jacksonville hung with talented New Mexico for just a couple minutes and then the game slipped away from them. By the half, the Dolphins trailed 41-29. The Lobos didn’t let up in the 2nd half, so Jacksonville got rocked 84-63 as New Mexico poured in 30 points in the paint. 25 turnovers by the Dolphins kept them from ever being able to make a serious run. C Ross Walker led Jacksonville with 12 points and 7 rebounds. [1-2]

Wofford (1-1) @ Northwestern (2-1, Conf C): In Wofford’s 3rd straight game on the road, the Terriers nipped Northwestern early and opened a 16 point lead, but let the Wildcats back into the game and only led at the half by a 43-37 score.

Morehead St. (0-1, Conf N) at Texas St. (0-2): In Texas State’s first home game of the season, the Bobcats looked nervous early and fell behind by 11 points. But the Bobcats fought back to gain a 40-40 tie at the break. In the 2nd half, the Bobcats defense overwhelmed the Eagles. Texas State pulled away for a convincing 75-57 smack down of Morehead State.

Hartford (2-1, Conf R) @ Jacksonville (1-2): This game was close the entire way. The score at the half was 41-38 in favor of Hartford. Momentum swayed back and forth throughout the 2nd half.
