Thanks Vandy. I give your resume a little love and you lose at home to Tennessee. It was a huge win for the Volunteers, not only cementing their at-large hopes but keeping them in that 7 to 9 seeding mix. Vanderbilt likely flips with Syracuse on the 4/5 lines.
Michigan State looks like they have turned things around enough to head toward a bid. After last night's road win at Minnesota, the Spartans will be out of my first four games and up to a 10 or 11 seed mid-week. Minnesota on the other hand, has played themselves out of the tournament. When considering the Al Nolen factor, the committee would be hard-pressed to include them at this point.
Wisconsin at Michigan - A bigger game for the Wolverines as they try for a marquee win for their resume.
VCA at Drexel - any at-large hopes for the Golden Rams require a 2-0 week this week.
Temple at Duke - interesting timing for an OCC game, but it will be telling nonetheless.
Colorado State at BYU - the Rams are in danger of falling out of the field. A road upset of BYU would change that. Maybe Jimmer is looking ahead to Saturday?
Kentucky at Arkansas - can the Wildcats reverse their road woes against a mediocre opponent?
Cincinnati at Georgetown - just another Big East battle of current tourney teams.
Kansas State at Nebraska - probably the biggest game of the night on both sides. The Cornhuskers can't afford to let their home mastery slip now.
Florida State at Maryland - the first real test post Chris Singleton for the 'Noles.
Baylor at Missouri - any chance Baylor has needs to start tonight.
