Reading that 2017 C-USA All-Freshman 6-4 G Jalen Harris has left LA Tech. Sophomore was 2nd leading scorer for the Bulldogs at 15.3 ppg through OOC play.

Also read that WKU still waiting on NCAA to rule on the eligibility of two players - touted freshman 6-4 G Josh Anderson (2017 #60 per 247Sports) and redshirt sophomore 6-9 F Moustapha Diagne. Toppers basically an 8 player team at this point.

Niners will be facing the current C-USA POTW when they travel to Denton on Thursday. North Texas sophomore 6-3 SG Roosevelt Smart averaged 25.5 ppg and 5.5 rpg in two road wins for the Mean Green last week versus UTEP and UTSA.

And speaking of UTSA, G Jhivvan Jackson garners his third freshman of week award this season, tying him with teammate Keaton Wallace.

Rice losing in OT doesn't hurt my feelings at all.  I hope they are in a funk tomorrow night.

Per Jon Rothstein, Anderson has been cleared to play, so we'll see him next week when WKU visits Halton.

On Saturday the Niners will face yet another reigning POTW in Darius Thompson. The 6-4 SG for WKU had a triple double of 33 points, 10 rebounds, and 10 assists in the Hilltoppers' 112-87 win at Marshall.

And UTSA continues its stranglehold on FOTW as Jhivvan Jackson is named top frosh for the third consecutive week and fourth time overall.

And now Diagne has been cleared to play as well. The one-time Syracuse signee and 4-star high school prospect has taken a circuitous route to D-I hoops and will be joining his WKU teammates on their road trip to Norfolk and Charlotte.

And Jon Rothstein agrees per this tweet:

Under-The-Radar game tonight in C-USA: Western Kentucky at ODU. Both are 3-0 in league play. Two best teams in conference along with Middle Tennessee.

Been looking at the latest Bracketology updates of both Joe Lunardi and Jerry Palm (as of January 15th) and the latter lists Middle Tennessee and WKU in his field of 68. 

Of course, I realize the respective RPIs of the C-USA frontrunners are likely to suffer as the season progresses but nice to see more than just one conference rep on a list for a change!

CUSA will probably have 3, and maybe 4, 20-win teams this season, with 2 of them in the top 50-60 RPI.  If we can stop being a damn anchor, we may not have too terrible a home in this league before long.
