Thursday's Games to Watch

Southern Illinois vs. Missouri State
Always tough to win on the road in the MVC, but the Salukis cannot afford too many losses in conference if they want a shot at an at-large bid after all their early season bad losses.

Cincinnati vs. Xavier
Cinci is looking to stop its mid-season slide, while Xavier needs to pick up a good win for its resume.

Oregon vs Washington State
Cougars hoping for a better week at home against the Oregon schools after last week's losses in LA.

Stanford vs. Arizona
Tough to figure out these Wildcats, they win at both Washington schools and then lose at both Oregon schools.

does Oregon have to win at least 12 conference games to make the NCAA tourney. which team do you think has a better chance to sneak into NCAA tournament? Oregon, Cal or Stanford?

First of all it's doubtful that Oregon could win 12 games in the Pac-10 but if they did they still would need to win a couple games in the Pac-10 tourney to have a shot at an at-large because of how bad they performed out of conference. It would really depend on who they beat along the way and how they finish up. Out of the teams you listed Cal has the best chance at an at-large. They have a higher RPI, better record and better wins then Oregon or Stanford.

With So. Illinois' loss there is now a four-way tie for first place in the Missouri Valley. It would be great to see all four in the tournament.

Creighton has a great shot to get in. They were in this week and will most likely be in again next week. They got a good RPI right now and a few good wins. With Southern Illinois recent losses they are looking like the second best team out of the MVC.

Dale,

The MVC has a good shot at getting all four teams (Northern Iowa, Southern Illinois, Creighton and Wichita State) in the dance. With some of the "big" conferences having down years, there are some open spots to go around. So far, the MVC looks very deserving of some of those spots.
