1/5 recap

Big 12:
@Baylor 79, Oklahoma St 62
@Texas 60, Kansas St 57

Big East:
Marquette 65, @Providence 64 - a catastrophic loss for Providence.  1 seeds don't lose this type of game.  Marquette is back in the middle of the bubble talk, and the Big East can absolutely support a bid for a 6th team
Butler 77, @DePaul 72
@Creighton 79, Georgetown 66 - it's getting late early for GU's bubble chances

Clemson 74, @Syracuse 73 (OT) - a really bad loss, and Syracuse is now on the brink

@LSU 85, Kentucky 67 - LSU has erased a lot of sins in the past week and have fought back to the bubble.  Work left to do, still
South Carolina 81, @Auburn 69 - I kinda wish USC would lose real quick here so we can avoid that feeling that they're frauds
@Arkansas 90, Vanderbilt 85 (OT) - what's going on with Vandy?  From tourney team to nowhere near the bubble, and fast

@Iowa 77, Nebraska 66
@Indiana 59, Wisconsin 58 - a hold of service which Indiana needs to solidify a position
@Penn St 86, Minnesota 77

Temple 55, @UConn 53 - a terrible, no good loss for UConn, who isn't the lock people think
@Tulsa 55, East Carolina 43
@Houston 63, Tulane 45 - well, Houston still has that gaudy record

@Rhode Island 77, Richmond 65 - two teams just barely close enough to the bubble to matter for the time being
VCU 85, @St Joseph's 82 - a pretty bad loss for a St Joe's team who's been sneaking up on the bubble.  Gotta hold in spots like these.  VCU still has work to do, by the way

Boise St 76, @Utah St 61 - well, if Boise can establish itself as top dog in the MW, they'll have a fighting chance at an at-large

Chattanooga over Mercer in the SoCon (probably not an at-large team, but building a reasonable profile
Akron wins at Buffalo, Kent wins at WMU in the MAC
non-con cupcake winners:  Memphis
