-UMASS AT SAINT BONAVENTURE (Atlantic Ten). UMass is still continuing to win most of their games, but they’ve had to sweat a lot of them out and Saint Bona isn’t the easiest place to win on the road.

-MEMPHIS AT UCF (American). Memphis is in good shape and can add another conference road win to their profile tonight. UCF has been somewhat of a disappointment this year.

-PENN STATE AT OHIO STATE (Big Ten). Ohio State had hit the skids somewhat, and they still don’t have a win over a team that’s solidly in the field. They don’t want to slip up in a game like this.
-NORTH CAROLINA AT GEORGIA TECH (ACC). UNC needs to win just to stay on the right side of the bubble.

-SAINT JOSEPH’S AT DAYTON (Atlantic Ten). Dayton is outside the bubble, and will fall out of consideration entirely if they don’t get it turned around quickly.

-FORDHAM AT VCU (Atlantic Ten). VCU shouldn’t have too much trouble picking up this conference win.

-LA SALLE AT GEORGE WASHINGTON (Atlantic Ten). Despite having an unimpressive record, La Salle has played well lately, and really let one get away against VCU in their last game. GW appears to be safely in the field, but they better not overlook La Salle in this one.

-TOLEDO AT MIAMI OH (MAC). At 17-2, Toledo may play their way onto the bubble if they win out.
-RICHMOND AT SAINT LOUIS (Atlantic Ten). SLU is solidly in the field, and Richmond is right on the bubble. This would be a huge statement win for the Spiders and put them on the right side of the bubble if they can pull this off. I’d go so far to say this is one of those make or break games, although a loss wouldn’t entirely break the Spiders.

-GREEN BAY AT VALPO (Horizon League). Green Bay will be in good shape for a bid if they keep winning.

-INDIANA STATE AT SOUTHERN ILLINOIS (Missouri Valley). Indiana State needs to hold serve in games like this, and pick up a win against Wichita if they want to get any serious consideration.

-ARIZONA AT STANFORD (Pac Twelve). Arizona State can remain unbeaten and on pace for a #1 seed. Stanford is on the bubble, so this would be a tremendously huge win for them.

-SYRACUSE AT WAKE FOREST (ACC). Syracuse has a great profile, but if you look at their true road games, they don’t have a true road win that is as impressive as this would probably be. I know it’s not a game that people are excited for, but Wake is unbeaten at home.

-IOWA STATE AT KANSAS (Big Twelve). Iowa State is really good, but they’re not #1 seed caliber good. I believe Kansas is, and they’re playing at home.

-NORTHWESTERN AT WISCONSIN (Big Ten). Northwestern has been playing better lately, but they’re likely to be way overmatched tonight.

-FLORIDA STATE AT NC STATE (ACC). FSU’s margin for error is getting smaller and smaller, so they need to approach road games like this one with a sense of urgency.

-ARIZONA STATE AT CALIFORNIA (Pac Twelve). I believe Cal is inside the bubble, but they sure don’t always play like they belong there. Arizona State has a lot of work to do and really needs some road wins like this one.

-GONZAGA AT SANTA CLARA (West Coast). Gonzaga’s profile is weak, so their margin for error is small.
