1/21 recap

Iowa 90, @Rutgers 76
@Purdue 75, Ohio St 64
Wisconsin 66, @Penn St 60

Arizona 71, @Stanford 57 - Stanford is slowly starting to approach the bottom part of the bubble race.  Home against ASU coming up might be mandatory
@Oregon 89, USC 81 - expected result; I think the Pac-12 pecking order is Oregon/Arizona/USC for the time being, but it'll change
@California 75, Arizona St 70 - the Pac-12 race is an 11-team race, but Arizona St is about to lose the draft, so to speak
Utah 92, @Washington St 71

Kentucky 80, @Arkansas 66

@Cincinnati 76, Memphis 72

Sun Belt:
@UT-Arlington 91, Arkansas St 64
Arkansas-Little Rock 77, Texas St 74 (OT)

BYU 91, @Loyola Marymount 80
@St Mary's 70, Gonzaga 67 - okay, St Mary's!  We got ourselves a good win and now we can really talk at-large.  Speaking of talking bubble, hi Gonzaga!

catastrophic loss of the day:
@Manhattan 78, Monmouth 71 - Monmouth had a mulligan or two left....and used one up here.  Not much margin of error left.  I'm nervous, because their 6-2 MAAC record extrapolates to 15-5 and 24-8 overall...I don't like their chances at 24-8

CAAWatch!:   JMU and UNC-W take out bottom-feeders.  W&M > Elon.  Those 3 winners are on 5-2.  Hofstra joins them by beating Northeastern.  The team with the best overall resume, Northeastern, is now 4-3 and 5th place.

miscellaneous winners:  Chattanooga, South Dakota St
