Games of Note for Friday, Nov 30th

-TENNESSEE AT GEORGETOWN. Georgetown has climbed to #20 in the polls, but based on what I’ve seen I believe them to be even better than that. I think Tennessee could have a good year as well, but they may be in a little over their heads in this one.

-OREGON STATE AT KANSAS. Both teams have just one loss. Oregon State appears to be turning the corner as far as being a team that can compete for a spot in the NCAA Tournament. To win a game like this, though, would indicate that they’re capable of doing much more than merely playing themselves into the discussion. Kansas has been solid this year, but they haven’t knocked anyone’s socks off yet. This one should be a good one.

-GEORGIA AT SOUTH FLORIDA. Since losing to Youngstown State, Georgia has looked pretty decent against UCLA and Indiana. The problem is that they didn’t win either game. South Florida is off to a modest 4-2 start and needs to build their profile up if they want to be taken seriously.

-SYRACUSE AT ARKANSAS. Arkansas has yet to lose at home, and has yet to win away from home. Very similar to last year. They have a lot of potential, but it hasn’t exactly shown through yet. Having said that, they are tough to beat at home and it won’t be a walk in the park for Syracuse.

-LOUISIANA TECH AT GEORGIA STATE. LA Tech doesn’t have a whole lot of history, and no one is overly excited about them this year, but a win does get them to 7-1. Georgia State would be a fairly decent road win for them.

-NORTHWESTERN STATE AT OKLAHOMA. I’m not too excited about the Sooners yet, but a win will get them to 6-1.
