-Apologies for todays delayed and abridged rundown of todays action.
-MISSOURI STATE AT EVANSVILLE (Missouri Valley). Missouri State is a solid team who should be able to take care of business on the road in this game. It will go down as a conference road win.
-SOUTH FLORIDA AT NOTRE DAME (Big East). Notre Dame has taken care of business at home for the most part, and today should be no different.
-MARQUETTE AT PITTSBURGH (Big East). Pitt is a solid pod team and Marquette is an inconsistent, but for the most part solid tournament team. It should be a hostile environment and it will be interesting to see how Marquette responds. They could use a big time win on the road.
-XAVIER AT SAINT JOSEPHS (Atlantic Ten). Xavier needs to continue to dominate the league if they want any consideration at all from the committee. They also need to win some road games.
-SYRACUSE AT SAINT JOHNS (Big East). Syracuse has really heated up lately, and this is a chance for them to pick up another conference road win.
-MARYLAND AT VIRGINIA TECH (ACC). Both teams have been playing pretty good basketball lately. Virginia Tech has been very tough to beat at home. This is simplky two tournament caliber teams looking to add another good win to their resumes.
