-TENNESSEE AT ALABAMA (SEC). Tennessee is coming off a decisive win against Georgia, and should be able to dominate this game tonight despite the fact that they’re on the road. They’re still in solid contention for a #1 seed and appear to be the team to beat in the SEC. Bama snapped a four game losing streak with a blowout win against rival Auburn, so they do have some momentum coming into this game.

-VCU AT GEORGE MASON (Colonial). These are the two best teams in the colonial, and both have a shot at playing their way onto and/or possibly inside the bubble if they can finish first in the league standings and avoid too many losses to poor RPI teams. Both teams really need to win this one, though, because the committee will look at this game if both teams end up being considered.

-SOUTH FLORIDA AT MARQUETTE (Big East). South Florida has completely gone into the tank and shouldn’t stand much of a chance tonight. Marquette is coming off a win against De Paul, which was a game they really needed. This is one of the more winnable conference games they’ll play between now and the end so they need to take care of business.

-MIAMI, FL AT WAKE FOREST (ACC). Miami has strung together some nice wins, but needs to keep that going if they want to remain safely in the NCAA Tourney picture. Wake has lost three out of their last four, including a heartbreaking overtime loss to Clemson in their last game. If they want to play their way into the picture they need to start winning games like this one, especially at home.
