Monday's scoreboard

Our fondness for hoping rebuilding teams turn things around cost us our first beating in daily picks. Don't worry, Tech and Longwood. We're not giving up on you guys. Doesn't mean we'll be picking you to win. But we'll keep an internal faith.

VCU 72, Virginia Tech 58: Too many turnovers, Tech. And so much for questions about who'll pick up VCU's the scoring slack - looks like everyone will. Oh, and happy birthday, Stephanie Solomon.

Richmond 78, George Mason 52: Another efficient, professional execution by the Spiders. Drexel comes calling on Friday.

USC Upstate 71, Longwood 59: Told you Upstate was no joke - the Spartans trailed by 18 late in the first half before roaring back. Now let's see if Upstate has anything for Virginia on Wednesday.

In the only game involving a state team tonight, UNC Greensboro visits Liberty at 7 p.m. The Lady Flames dominated Winston-Salem St. in Friday's opener and we expect their good times to keep rolling. Liberty 75, UNC Greensboro 57

Elsewhere in the region, Delaware launches the Delle Donne Era tonight at St. Francis (Pa.). And couch potatos can feast on ESPN's women's hoops doubleheader: Tennessee vs. Texas Tech at 7 p.m. (ESPNU) followed by mighty UConn vs. Texas at 9:30 (ESPN2).
