The oddsmakers set the bar high, but Wright State and the Norse didn't disappoint and broke past the 159.5 point over/under on Sunday. The Raiders walked away with an 85-78 win over the Norse. Winning is a bit easier when your shooting is a whole 17% better than the opposition, as Wright State's was.

Meanwhile, this season hasn't been kind to Detroit, who are still winless after their 24th match. They fell 75-67 to the Colonials on Saturday. The defeat unfortunately continues a disappointing trend for Detroit in their matchups with the Colonials: they've now lost three in a row.
