JMU, UVa. and Virginia Tech all go down

We're thankful the state's teams get to play again today to erase memories of an 0-for-3 Thanksgiving Day performance.



No. 22 Iowa 67, James Madison 61:  The Dukes (2-2) led by 10 with 10:35 to go and were tied at 61 with less than a minute left. But Dawn Evans was whistled for a foul with four seconds left on the shot clock (we hope it wasn't a ticky-tack call), and Kelsey Cermak made both free throws to put the Hawkeyes in front for good. Iowa made 6 of 6 free throws in the final 34 seconds, and 27 of 30 for the game. Evans, who finished with a game-high 32 points, eclipsed the 2,000-point mark when she nailed a 3-pointer at 16:36 of the second half. She now has 2,015 for her career.

Iowa State 66, Virginia 48: Simply put, the Cavaliers (3-2) fell because they couldn't stop Iowa State from doing what Iowa State does - make shots, especially 3s (7 of 13 in the first half, 9 overall).

Florida Gulf Coast 73, Virginia Tech 65: The teams played evenly through the first half before the Eagles buried the Hokies (4-1) with a barrage of 3-pointers. For the game the Eagles hit 13 from distance, one shy of the record by a Tech opponent (UConn, 2001). Who do these guys think they are, Tennessee?
