The daily dribble

Last night

Liberty 60, UNC Greensboro 42: The '85 Bears didn't play defense this well. Let's see if the Lady Flames can keep it up against stiffer competition.


Georgetown at James Madison, 7 p.m.
The Hoyas eked out a win when these teams met in Washington last year, and some people even think this year's G-town edition is a Top-25 contender. Still, we're giving the edge to the team that's 20-2 against non-conference opponents (49-5 against anyone) at the JMU Convocation Center the last four years. JMU 71, G-town 65

- Family connections: Hoyas coach Terri Williams-Flournoy continues to tap into her brother's Elite AAU squad for infusions of talent. Monday's signings brings the number of Boo Williams' alumni to sign with the Hoyas to four.

USC Upstate at Virginia, 7 p.m.
A bit of a trap game for the youthful Cavaliers as Tennessee visits Sunday. Consequently, the Cavs had better not sleepwalk through this one or Debbie Ryan will make their lives miserable in practice the rest of the week. Especially since tonight will mark Ryan's 1,000th game walking the sidelines (701-298 career record). Virginia 78, USC Upstate 60

- The start time for Sunday's Tennessee-Virginia game has been moved from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. to avoid a conflict with a UVa men's soccer NCAA second-round tournament match. At present 7,700 tickets have been sold; the goal is to break the current attendance record of 11,174

Norfolk State at Wofford, 6 p.m.
The Lady Terriers went 5-24 last year and are coming off a 31-point loss at UNC Wilmington. In other words, if the Spartans are going to get a road victory, this is the spot. But until they actually pull it off.... Wofford 58, NSU 55
