-NORTHWESTERN AT MICHIGAN (Big Ten). Michigan has had a rough year and will need a very strong showing in conference play if they want to turn it around. They certainly need to take care of business in games like this.

-NORTHERN IOWA AT WICHITA STATE (Missouri Valley). Wichita will be favored in all the rest of their games, and may even contend for a #1 seed if they win out.

-PURDUE AT MINNESOTA (Big Ten). Both teams have looked good this year, but neither have any really big wins on their profile, so you get the sense that his is one that both of them could really use.

-USC AT UCLA (Pac Twelve). This should be a fun one. Not much was expected out of USC this year, but they are 9-4 with some respectable wins against Xavier and Dayton. Their new coach has also been rather vocal in the press about the rivalry. If USC can pull off the upset, they’ll have three notable wins, all away from home, and one will have to start paying attention to them.

-SAN DIEGO STATE AT KANSAS. San Diego State is a good team, but this is a very tall order against a Kansas team that has tested themselves against a tough schedule, and that has looked really good at home.

-OREGON AT COLORADO (Pac Twelve). This should be a great one between two conference front runners who could both easily wind up as protected seeds. Colorado has looked good this year, especially at home.

-PROVIDENCE AT VILLANOVA (Big East). Providence continues to deal with off the court issues, and Nova continues to look like a top ten team. They shouldn’t have much trouble in this one.

-IOWA AT WISCONSIN (Big Ten). This is a great match-up. Wisconsin has looked as good as anyone in the country, and although Iowa hasn’t played too many road games, they did look good at Iowa State, and managed some big neutral site wins as well.
