The 16 biggest games on Thursday night's Championship Week schedule:
West Virginia vs. Boston College
West Virginia in with a win, BC still has a shot at the last No. 1 seed.
Clemson vs. Maryland
Many people think Maryland is still in regardless of the outcome. Bracketology 101 says those people are wrong.
Florida State vs. NC State
Wolfpack have to win two games to get in. With no Chris Paul, a quarterfinal win over Wake is possible.
LaSalle vs. Xavier
We are the only believers in Xavier. Let's hope they start strong.
Baylor vs. Iowa State
Cyclones just need to win this game to go dancing. Don't pull an ND.
Hawaii vs. UTEP
UTEP needs to get to the WAC final to feel relatively safe.
DePaul vs. UAB
Game of the day: UAB needs it more than DePaul, but they aren't in with a win.
Oregon State vs. UCLA
UCLA is probably safe either way. A win makes them a lock.
Fordham vs. George Washington
GW needs at least two wins to avoid the NIT.
Kansas State vs. Texas A&M
A&M needs this game and the next.
Georgetown vs. Connecticut
Georgetown could go from dead to in with a win here. Huskies playing for a No. 2 seed.
Virginia vs. Miami-Fla.
Miami is one of many ACC teams in need of two conference tourney wins to get in.
BYU vs. New Mexico
Lobos' resume is poor, but making the final may just be enough this year to get them a berth.
Auburn vs. Vanderbilt
Vandy is the last team on our bubble. They need at least two wins.
Washington State vs. Stanford
Even with Stanford's "safe" status, a third loss to Wazzou would raise eyebrows.
MAC Tournament: Buffalo vs. Toledo, Kent State vs. Ohio, Akron vs. Western Michigan, Miami-Ohio vs. Bowling Green
This whole damn conference is on the bubble. We still like Buffalo.
