Drake finally took a loss.
Pat Knight finally notched a win.
Here's Thursday morning's edition of What You Need To Know.
Notable game from Wednesday: Drake isn't going undefeated in the Missouri Valley Conference, not after that 65-62 loss at Southern Illinois that snapped the 14th-ranked Bulldogs' 21-game winning streak. Randal Falker had 13 points and 10 rebounds for SIU, which is now 13-12 overall and 8-6 in the MVC. Meantime, Drake is 22-2 overall, 13-1 in the league and still one victory away from clinching its first conference title in 37 years.
Notable performance from Wednesday: Alan Voskuil hit 9-of-14 shots (including 7-of-9 3-point attempts) to finish with 30 points and six rebounds in Texas Tech's 84-75 victory over 18th-ranked Kansas State. The 6-foot-3 junior has scored at least 14 points in three straight games and his latest effort helped Pat Knight get his first career victory while Bob Knight sat in the crowd and seemed slightly emotional when the final buzzer sounded. Honestly, it was a sweet little moment. And now Pat is merely 901 victories away from tying his father on the all-time wins list.
Notable game scheduled for Thursday: The surprise of the Pac-10 will be on display when Stanford visits Arizona State. The Cardinal is ranked seventh in the nation thanks to a 20-3 overall record that includes a 9-2 mark in the league. Arizona State is 15-7 overall, 5-5 in the Pac-10 and coming off a 59-54 victory at Arizona that snapped a five-game losing streak. Tip-off is set for 10:30 p.m. ET.
