11/26 recap

Battle 4 Atlantis, your impact tournament of the day:
Butler 74, North Carolina 66 - UNC has plenty of chances to rebound.  The news here is Butler might be a lot better than we thought, and adds another layer of depth to the Big East
Oklahoma 75, UCLA 65 - Another mild upset in the tournament.  UCLA/UNC...we're getting the matchup anyways
Wisconsin 72, UAB 43
Georgetown 66, Florida 65 (OT) - holy hell, what is wrong with Florida?  At least they'll get one of UNC/UCLA in their 3rd game

Missouri 74, Chaminade 60
Purdue 87, BYU 85 (OT) - ooh, that's a poor drop by BYU
Pittsburgh 70, Kansas St 47 - The margin isn't good for KSU.  Pitt mildly rebounds from a marginal loss to Hawaii earlier
Arizona 61, San Diego St 59 - Really, mission accomplished for both teams.  Arizona grabbed their 3 wins and SDSU look and feels like a tourney team

St John's 70, Minnesota 61 - I think this technically goes as a road game for Minny...which does help the profile a little bit
Gonzaga 88, Georgia 76 - St John's/Gonzaga coming up.  A road win for Gonzaga here could be the difference between the 2 line and the 4 line in March

Gulf Coast Showcase:
Marist 68, Fresno St 64
Hawaii 75, East Carolina 73
Evansville 79, San Francisco 72
Green Bay 59, FGCU 45 - Mission accomplished for Green Bay, they bank 3 neutral site wins for at-large consideration

MGM Grand Main Event:
Auburn 71, Oregon St 69 - about goddamn time the SEC won one of these
Oklahoma St 73, Tulsa 58

Virginia Tech 78, Miami (OH) 63
Northern Iowa 61, Northwestern 42 - Mission accomplished for UNI - 2 wins over middling major teams

Great Alaska Shootout:
Pacific 71, Alaska-Anchorage 62
Colorado St 76, Missouri St 61

@UMass 79, Northeastern 54
@North Carolina St 84, Richmond 72
