Alright, one day into the conference seasons and we're down to eight undefeated teams and thirteen winless teams.

Last Night
#10 S. Vermont 51   #7 Emmanuel 62
Emmanuel stayed undefeated by opening up a 10 point lead at the break and then nursing that lead the rest of the way.  Visiting S. Vermont made several runs at a comeback but the closest they got was 3 points a couple times, after which Emmanuel again extended the lead.  They pulled away for good with a few minutes left in the game and finished off a solid double-digit win.  Emmanuel and bananajacobs jumped up two spots in the rankings with the win while S.Vermont and funngun started off conference play on the wrong foot and dropped three rankings places.

Also considered: #6 Willamette pulled away for a 71-53 win over #12 Chapman, #3 Millsaps downed Trinity at home 70-54, #5 Lynchburg got past Bridgewater 65-56, #13 Ohio Wesleyan edged Earlham on the road 69-63, Wooster upset Wittenberg in overtime 73-71 (much to the delight of pretty much everyone), and #17 Emory cruised past Rhodes 83-64.

Sim blowout watch: Keuka just kept the opposition to double-figures and got the cover against #14 Vassar 59-97.

ITaLRbHAGotN: Completely forgot to pick a second featured game yesterday, my bad.

#1 Kenyon (11-0)(jsajsa) at Wittenberg (8-3)(darnoc29099)
Over to the N.Coast for night two of the conference season where our undefeated top-ranked team goes on the road for a cross-divisional battle.  Kenyon has been cruising all season and will look to continue their winning streak.  Wittenberg needs to rebound from a heart-breaker overtime loss to open the season, a home upset here would be huge.  darnoc leads the series 3-1 but the visitors are favored by 10.

Also considered: #3 Millsaps at Hendrix, #7 Emmanuel at Emerson, Whitworth at #12 Chapman, and #20 Hiram at Earlham

Sim blowout watch: Pittsburgh Bradford is getting 68 points as they visit #2 Susquehanna while Thiel is a 53 point road dog at #13 Ohio Wesleyan.

#9 Webster (9-2)(mschulte24) at Aurora (7-4)(jbra12)
An important early-season divisional game in the St. Louis conference.  Both teams won their opener and now will meet to see who gets the early lead in the west division standings.  mschulte has a big lead in the all-time series and his team is favored by 10 on the road.  And of course... Gorloks.
