Good Afternoon Vandal Nation: Dec. 3, 2009

3 Dec

Today’s been packed with academic stuff, so we’ve gone to an afternoon edition again.

We’ve got two big games tonight in hoops-land: the women are at home against the Wyoming Cowgirls, while the men are down in the San Fernando Valley, taking on the Cal State-Northridge Matadors. Both games tip off at 7 p.m. Because we have class tonight, we won’t be doing a play-by-play liveblog — however, we will have regular scoring updates on Twitter.

The other big news today: standout offensive lineman Mike Iupati was named an All-American by the American Football Coaches Association. He’s the only WAC player on the list, and one of just three from non-BCS schools.


  • Louisiana Tech’s Kyle Gibson buried a last-seconds 3-pointer to edge out Louisiana-Monroe, as the Bulldogs’ SID reports. They don’t have any marquee wins yet, but the Bulldogs do have the WAC’s best record at 6-1. (h/t to Parsing the WAC)
  • It woulda, coulda, shoulda been a 3-0 sweep for the WAC last night, but the slumping Rainbow Warriors couldn’t get it done against UC Irvine. As Tom Connolly reported for the Honolulu Star-Bulletin, the Anteaters built a 15-point halftime lead on the back of Hawaii’s frightful 27 percent shooting performance in the opening period.
