12/30 recap

Big 10 play:
Northwestern 51, @Rutgers 47
Iowa 71, @Ohio St 65 - now, how about this?  Right off the bat, a signature road win for Iowa to erase some sins in non-con play.  On the other hand, OSU still doesn't have a quality win...
@Michigan 73, Illinois 65 (OT) - all this does is pull Illinois closer to the bubble while Michigan is still too far away from it to matter
Maryland 68, @Michigan St 66 (2OT) - signature road win!  I'm not sure when we should start questioning MSU as an actual tourney team, but we're encroaching on that point

Results that matter:
Cincinnati 76, @North Carolina St 60 - a rather important road win for Cincy, and the AAC, for that matter.  Really worried about the midsection of the ACC, too
@Florida St 65, Florida 63 - catastrophic loss for UF who is really in bubble trouble now
@Dayton 78, Ole Miss 74

@West Virginia 82, Virginia Tech 51
@Louisville 63, Long Beach St 48
@Virginia 83, Davidson 72 - Davidson hung around in this game.  Seems as if they'll be players for 2nd in the A-10
@UMass 87, Iona 82 - the MAAC is in trouble this year
@Georgia Tech 67, Charlotte 66
@Pittsburgh 71, FGCU 54
Oklahoma St 74, @Missouri 72 (OT)
@New Mexico St 54, Texas Southern 52 - 4th straight game TSU has either won or lost by a single possession, all against stiff competition.  The overall record (3-10) is awful but they could absolutely avoid the 16 line in March

Cupcake winners:  UNC, Akron, Buffalo, Clemson, Miami, George Washington, South Carolina, Notre Dame, Georgia St, Kansas (over Kent St), Harvard (on the road at Grand Canyon), Texas A&M, Oregon St, USC
