News, Notes, and Highlighted Games: Friday, Dec 7th

-Iowa bounced back from two straight losses with an impressive showing and win over rival Iowa State in an intense affair.  Purdue also picked up their first big win of the season after knocking off Maryland in a game that came down to the final seconds.

-UMASS AT PROVIDENCE.  Providence is coming off a hard fought win against Boston College, and should be able to improve to 8-2 on the year with a win tonight.

-NEW MEXICO VS SAINT MARY’S (Staples Center).  Both of these teams have a lot of catching up to do, and need to string together a lot of wins in order for it to even be possible.

-LOUISIANA TECH AT STEPHEN F AUSTIN.  These are two pretty good UTR teams that have kind of stumbled this year. A win today would be huge as far as getting them back on track.

-TCU VS USC (Staples Center).  Both teams could really use this win.  TCU is 6-1 on the year, and they just picked up a nice road win at rival SMU.  Another big win away from home could propel them back into the rankings.  USC has some potential, but as of now they really haven’t picked up any wins of note.

-NEVADA VS ARIZONA STATE (Staples Center).  Both teams are ranked, both teams are unbeaten, and both teams are currently on pace to end up as protected seeds.  This is probably the biggest test of the year for either team so far, so it should be fun.

-Oral Roberts @ Missouri
-Southern U W @ South Dakota State
