Highlighted Games for Sunday, Jan 12th

-SMU AT LOUISVILLE (AAC). Louisville lacks big wins, but they have avoided losses to teams outside the NCAA Tournament picture. SMU, on the other hand, is trying to play their way into the picture, and a win today would go a long way.

-SOUTHERN MISS AT TULSA (Conference USA). A win for Southern Miss gets them to 15-2.

-IOWA AT OHIO STATE (Big Ten). Iowa has played really well against some big teams on the road this year, but has come up just short every time. A win in this one would do wonders for their profile.

-GREEN BAY AT MILWAUKEE (Horizon League). Green Bay is a long shot for an at-large, but they are a dangerous team from the Horizon and could really scare someone in the NCAAs if they win the automatic bid. They have one of their tougher tests today at Milwaukee. For more on that game, see here: http://hoopshd.com/2014/01/12/small-conference-game-of-the-day-january-12/

-COLORADO AT WASHINGTON (Pac Twelve). Washington hasn’t had a good season, but they’ve looked really good since conference play began. They face a Colorado team that had to sweat out a really weak Wazzu team earlier this week.

-XAVIER AT CREIGHTON (Big East). Xavier has looked good this year, but this is by far their toughest test so far. It’s a big game for both teams. Both are good, but both still have work to do.

-SAN DIEGO STATE AT AIR FORCE (Mountain West). SDSU has had a great year, and simply needs to take care of business and avoid a bad loss today.

-STANFORD AT OREGON (Pac Twelve). Oregon is coming off a somewhat surprising loss to Cal and is looking to rebound.

-AKRON AT OHIO (MAC). Neither team is likely to get an at-large, but they are two of the better teams in the MAC.

-UTAH AT WASHINGTON STATE (Pac Twelve). Utah has a good record, but their schedule was so weak that they still have a ton of work to do.

-ILLINOIS AT NORTHWESTERN (Big Ten). Illinois was clobbered earlier in the week, and needs to rebound from that and avoid another loss. Northwestern isn’t good, but they are capable of giving Illinois fits at home.

-MARYLAND AT FLORIDA STATE (ACC). Florida State has done a few good things, but they are a long way from being able to coast.

-ARIZONA AT USC (Pac Twelve). Arizona had a big win at UCLA earlier this week and should continue to cruise.

-ARIZONA STATE AT UCLA (Pac Twelve). Arizona State still has a lot of work to do, and UCLA’s resume could use some improving as well.
