1/16 recap

Big 12:
@Kansas 70, TCU 63
@Oklahoma 70, West Virginia 68 - status quo for everyone here
Iowa St 76, @Kansas St 63
Baylor 63, @Texas Tech 60 - remember when everyone but me pegged TTU as a tournament team?  Good times
@Texas 74, Oklahoma St 69

Big East:
Villanova 55, @Georgetown 50
Xavier 74, @Marquette 66 - a couple of home teams with golden signature win chances by the boards
Seton Hall 81, @Providence 72 - Provi is now clearly a step behind the top 2 in this conference, but on the other hand, SHU is a solid #5
@Butler 78, St John's 58

@Arizona 90, Washington St 66
Washington 89, @Arizona St 85 - with 742 bubble teams in this conference, road wins like this matter more than you think

@North Carolina 67, North Carolina St 55
@Clemson 76, Miami 65 - sloppy loss, resume-wise for Miami.  Clemson encroaching on the fringes of the bubble, legitimately now
Notre Dame 95, @Duke 91 - signature road wins matter
@Pittsburgh 84, Boston College 61
Virginia Tech 78, @Georgia Tech 77 - close to fatal for GT.  VT, um, not sure what's going on here
Syracuse 83, @Wake Forest 55 - Syracuse plays it way off the bubble, then rallies just in time to take Wake off the bubble too.  Neat

@Maryland 100, Ohio St 65 - the eye test does not help here
Indiana 70, @Minnesota 63
Nebraska 78, @Illinois 67
Penn St 71, @Northwestern 62 - ugh, exactly the type of terrible loss that kills at-large momentum

@Auburn 75, Kentucky 70 - oy, this conference
Texas A&M 79, @Georgia 45 - and A&M is going to have to run away with this conference to get a high seed
@South Carolina 81, Missouri 72
Tennessee 80, @Mississippi St 75
@Vanderbilt 71, Alabama 63
Florida 80, @Ole Miss 71 - a very good look for Florida, but not one for Ole Miss.  There's a pretty nice top 3 forming (USC/A&M/UK) and maybe Florida as a #4, but the picture's getting blurry after that
@LSU 76, Arkansas 74 - the rally ain't dead yet

@Davidson 86, UMass 74
@St Joseph's 80, Fordham 55
VCU 94, @Richmond 89 (OT)
@Rhode Island 73, LaSalle 62 - optimal results this day in the A-10
@Duquesne 95, St Bonaventure 88 - well, except this one, Dukes really aren't quite in it yet

@Memphis 71, South Florida 56
@Temple 67, Cincinnati 65 (2OT) - oh no

@Gonzaga 88, San Diego 52
@Portland 84, BYU 81 - the WCC is in all sorts of trouble here now

Loyola(Chi) 51, @Northern Iowa 41 - tire fire alert!

Sun Belt:
@South Alabama 88, Texas-Arlington 85 (OT) - and the first real mistake from UTA

@Valparaiso 85, Green Bay 70

San Diego St 56, @Boise St 53 - in the battle of the only 2 teams with a sniff of the bubble, the worse team wins on the road.  Good job good effort, Mountain West

CAA:  Northeastern of the conference is still crowded.  JMU beats Hofstra on the road
Summit:  IPFW beats Omaha on the road.  And the opening is squandered for South Dakota St as NDSU beats them.  IPFW and Omaha joint lead
Sun Belt:  Georgia St lost at home, so they're slowly clearing the stage for the other two, at least
MWC:  elsewhere, Wyoming beats UNM on the road, Utah St beats Colorado St on the road, and who knows what's going on here
SoCon:  Chattanooga beats ETSU
CUSA:  LaTech lost yet again, UAB wins and is the clear favorite
