11/21 preview

Impact game of the day:
George Washington at Virginia - I have GWU around the bubble conversation....obviously a win over Virginia has immediate resume impact

At New York, the 2K Classic:
Syracuse vs. Iowa - Syracuse dropped an iffy one to Cal, don't want to have to make up at-large ground in ACC play
Texas vs. California

At Brooklyn, the Coaches vs. Cancer Classic begins:
UNLV vs. Stanford - Winner gets a good neutral win for the resume and a free shot at Duke.  Loser gets a garbage game with Temple.  High stakes
Temple vs. Duke

At the Charleston Classic:
USC/Drexel and Penn St/Cornell in the consy bracket
Charlotte/South Carolina and Akron/Miami in the winners bracket

At Puerto Rico:
Texas A&M/Charleston and New Mexico/George Mason in the consy bracket.  UNM really needs to sweep these next 2 games
Dayton/UConn and Boston College/West Virginia in the winners bracket.  I'm highlighting the Dayton/UConn game as big for Dayton, and if BC is actually good...this is a house money chance for them

The Paradise Jam gets underway.  LSU/Old Dominion is my game of the day there.  Clemson/Gardner-Webb, Seton Hall/Nevada, Illinois St/Weber St

Non-tournament games of note:
Toledo at Oregon - well technically it's a tournament game, but one of those buy games before the actual neutral site games.  Anyways, if Toledo is actually good, which I think they are, this is a spot to steal a road win, IMO.
Stephen F Austin at Xavier - Hey, SFA has stepped up its schedule!  I don't think they'll be hurt one bit if they lose this game
Iona at Wake Forest - This is an eminently losable game for WF
Kansas St at Long Beach St - Don't laugh, this would be a good road win for the resume for KSU, and a loss doesn't even hurt that badly
Pittsburgh at Hawaii - Pitt is on the way to Maui, one shot at a mini-boost for the resume with a road win
