Iowa 70, Indiana 67
Different coach, same result for the struggling Hooisers.
Purdue 84, Michigan 70
What's gotten into the bottom of the Big Ten lately?
Duke 96, Maryland 88
Another huge day by J.J. (35) sends Terps to fourth loss in five games. The Terps play four of their final six games on the road, and have to get to 9-7 in conference to feel safe.
Florida 71, LSU 62
Good bounce-back win for the Gators at home.
Arizona 80, Oregon State 58
Wildcats avoid loss No. 10 with an easy win over the Beavers.
Southern Illinois 74, Creighton 67
Huge win for the Salukis' at-large hopes.
N.C. Wilmington 69, Georgia State 57; Hofstra 89, N'eastern 78; VCU 80, ODU 74; George Mason 65, Towson 53
CAA might get two bids with the lack of quality at-large candidates in the big conferences.
George Washington 64, St. Joseph's 62
It's games like this that make sure wonder if GW is a lock to win the A-10 tourney.
Minnesota 69, Michigan State 55
Does anyone want to win this conference?
Utah 67, San Diego State 65
Can't lose MWC home games and get an at-large bid. Mountain West is looking like a one bid conference.
Vanderbilt 84, Kentucky 81
Another head-scratching loss for Kentucky, this time against a Vandy team that had lost four straight. Season sweep for Vandy puts them right back in the hunt for a bid.
Washington 70, UCLA 67
Huge home sweep over the LA schools for the Huskies will do wonders to their seed and shut up their doubters.
Alabama 64, Mississippi 50
Tide's seed will get a nice bump after a two-win week.
Tennessee 83, Georgia 78
Major opportunity blown by the Bulldogs.
Kansas 88, Iowa State 75
Terrible week for the Cyclones will likely leave them out of the field this week.
Colorado 66, Texas Tech 64
Buffs take care of business at home.
UConn 99, Seton Hall 57
Huskies seem untouchable right now, but they should get tested this week at 'Nova and WVU.
Missouri State 66, Northern Iowa 63
Bears get a huge road win and keep themselves alive for an at-large and the MVC alive for 5 bids.
UAB 72, East Carolina 64
Blazers have no room for error after loss to UTEP earlier on the week.
Arkansas 84, Auburn 64
Can't think of another team that has been in basically the same spot on the bubble in the past month like the Razorbacks.
New Mexico State 83, Utah State 77
Just a few hours ago we were talking about the Aggies' at-large chances. Now that conversation is moot since tourney teams don't get swept by NMSU.
Gonzaga 80, Stanford 76
Cardinal made a valient effort on the road but blew their opportunity this week to get a good road win. Don't count them out though because they have 4 of their last 6 at home and have chances to beat ranked teams (@ Wash., UCLA).
Georgia Tech 71, North Carolina State 67
First real bad slip-up for the Wolfpack this season.
Ohio State 69, Illinois 53
Streaking Buckeyes might be the Big Ten's highest-seeded team this week.
Syracuse 75, St. John's 60
Orange get back to .500 in conference with nice road win over the Johnnies. A sweep this week at home over Cincinnati and Louisville is still a must though.
Rutgers 91, Marquette 84
Would have been nice for the Golden Eagles to have this one with Georgetown and Pitt coming in this week.
