Games of the Day

Providence v. Louisville (11:00am)
Rarely is it this stark and simple, but if Providence wins, they're probably in The Dance.  If they lose, they're probably out.  Biggest (non-Mizzou) game of the day.

Minnesota v. Northwestern (11:00am)
Another early game with tourney implications.  The winner of this game isn't necessarily in the tourney (though Minnesota's looking pretty good), but the loser definitely isn't.

Kansas State v. Texas (2:00pm)
If K-State has a prayer of making The Dance, they have to win this game.  Their stock has taken a near-fatal hit in recent weeks, but beware a desperate, streaky team.

Maryland v. N.C. State (6:00pm)
I still don't think Maryland's in if they win this game, but they're out if they lose.

UCLA v. Wazzu (10:30pm)
There aren't necessarily tourney implications here, but this is a rematch of a fun, wide-open game from a couple weeks ago, and if Wazzu wins, they've got as good a chance as any in this wide-open tourney.
