Angelo Johnson and Gary Flowers were too much for Mike Davis' futile Blazers. 44 points? Something told me that USM would finally get past the Blazers (they had two tough losses earlier in the year), but I had no idea that they would get beat like that. Mike Davis: four years in Birmingham and no tournament appearances. Remember when Davis wouldn't make a guarantee to DeMarcus Cousins that he'd stay in Birmingham if he committed? Now, you have to wonder if his seat is warming.
Conference USA is now a one bid league unless UTEP loses in the C-USA Tournament. It's a shame. UAB and Memphis were both in excellent positions to get into the tournament but it seems highly unlikely either team gets in now.
