12/30 recap

@Michigan St 61, Northwestern 52 - all of these "should win" games are mandatory for MSU at this stage.  NU is still fine but can't drop too many of these

UCLA 76, @Oregon St 63
Arizona 67, @California 62 - not a trivial road win
@Oregon 84, USC 61 - so, Oregon had a good week.  No real harm to USC, but they will have to beat another top team in this conference at some point
Arizona St 98, @Stanford 93 - neither team figures to be relevant at this point

Big 12:
Kansas 86, @TCU 80 - obviously the toughest home game for TCU this year, but they'll eventually need to pick off Baylor or WVU at home
Baylor 76, @Oklahoma 50
West Virginia 92, @Oklahoma St 75 - top 3 in the Big 12 all hold on the road...could actually harm the league in terms of total bids, but we've got 2 months to sort that out.  This is a bit of a killer for OSU who could use a signature win to buttress the resume
@Iowa St 63, Texas Tech 56
@Kansas St 65, Texas 62

St Bonaventure 89, @UMass 77 - both teams built up reasonably okay records in the non-con
@Dayton 66, LaSalle 55
Rhode Island 90, @St Louis 56
VCU 73, @George Mason 64

Valparaiso 70, @UIC 59
@Memphis 70, South Carolina 54 - not an awful road loss, but still, this is why you nver trust USC's non-con work
@New Mexico St 79, UTEP 70 - NMSU is building up a gaudy record
