Jan 30th Game results
MARYLAND The Terps are on a roll. They defeat fellow four seed line Iowa at home 82-72 to gain a nice quad 1 win.
ARIZONA- The first true road win for Arizona comes at bubble team Washington. The Wildcats NET has been strong, this win helps soothe the recent road loss at Arizona St.
OREGON– Beats California on the road. California has been playing really well of late so this is a nice win for the Ducks as they look for a better seed.
ILLINOIS The Fighting Illini keep grinding out wins. Beating Minnesota 59-51 keeps them at the top of the BIG 10 and moving closer to a top 4 seed line. Still have some work to do to get at that level though
USC– The Trojans came from behind to eke out a victory over Utah 56-52. USC is safely in at this time and wins like this are important to keep it that way
COLORADO The Buffaloes are having a great season and one loss is not devastating. However, losing to UCLA this year hurts the resume. This is a seed line loss more than anything
STANFORD– The Cardinal are the hardest team to seed. High NET and questionable resume. Well, they are helping us out with two straight quad 3 losses including the loss on Thursday at home to Oregon St. This may end up being a quad 2 loss at some point but Stanford is starting to fade.
MID MAJOR GAMES
GEORGIA ST– Defeats South Alabama 76-73 to improve to 15-7 on the year. This conference always poses a threat to win one game in the tourney. Watch this tournament in March
LOUISIANA TECH The Bulldogs are having a nice season. They defeated a decent Charlotte team 72-59. They are 16-5 on the season and their NET ranking keeps on improving, currently at 82. A team to watch in March.
