12/31 recap

Big East:
@Seton Hall 78, St John's 67 - this won't hurt St John's too badly as long as road losses aren't a trend.  Minor boon to SHU
@Villanova 67, Butler 55 - again, doesn't really hurt Butler or help 'Nova
@DePaul 61, Marquette 58 - DePaul in 1st place in the Big East!
@Providence 65, Creighton 53 - home hold of service
@Xavier 70, Georgetown 53 - and one final home hold of service.  G'town better not make a trend of these

Mountain West:
@Wyoming 76, UNLV 71 - might've been a tough ask for UNLV, but they'll need to a win a road game like this or two down the road in the conference
@Colorado St 71, Boise St 65 - ok, a semi-legitimate win.  CSU trending upwards
San Diego St and New Mexico hold serve at home

Temple 57, @UConn 53 - UConn is really, legitimately in trouble, and Temple is really, legitimately in play for the NCAA tournament
Memphis, SMU hold serve

Big 10:
@Wisconsin 89, Penn St 72
@Purdue 72, Minnesota 68
Indiana 70, @Nebraska 65 - important road win

Loyola, Wichita hold serve, Illinois St does not

Vanderbilt 70, @St Louis 55
@Duke 84, Wofford 55
Georgia 50, @Kansas St 46 - well, we found the Big 12's weak spot
Northeastern 58, @Richmond 57
Coastal Carolina 83, @High Point 68 - your presumptive two favorites in the Big South, early advantage to CCU
cupcake winners:  Green Bay, Rhode Island, Oklahoma, Syracuse, Iowa St
