Pretty good night in college basketball last night. First of all, it doesn't pertain to the top 25, but my Michigan State Spartans were finally able to get a win again. It was a road win at that, so that is a good sign. Sure, it was against Nebraska who has definitely struggled all season, but I am going to consider it a boost to morale for MSU. They pretty much destroyed them...
Lot's of excitement happening in the top 25, Ohio State proves that they probably didn't really belong there with a loss to #20 Iowa.
I totally should have put money down on the Oregon/Arizona State game. Check my post from yesterday to see just how well I called that one.
Likewise, USC almost pulled out the win over Colorado to get the upset. I had a feeling that would be a close game! Everything else happened pretty much the way you would expect. There are still a number of teams with only a handful of loses this season. Which is pretty surprising given how things have been going.
No top 25 games on tonight, but 15 on tap for Saturday and 4 lined up for Sunday.
Key games to watch in my opinion:
Kansas/Baylor should be a good game. Two top five teams battling is always exciting!
Providence could snag an upset from Marquette. That might be a good game to flip to ever now and then during the previously mentioned game.
After those games, I would recommend the Villanova/Xavier game. That could be a potential upset as well.
In the evening assuming you aren't all basketball'd out, the Florida/Kentucky game could be close. Additionally, Oregon could struggle with the other team from Arizona.
On Sunday, Penn State/Indiana could be a good game. I would also recommend the Butler/Creighton game. That has the potential to be a really close match-up and could go either way.
Finally, if you want a good laugh, Maryland should give Ohio State a pretty good smack down at home.
