1/31 recap

@Virginia 74, Louisville 64 - UVa/Nova is starting to turn into an interesting conversation for #1 overall
@Miami 69, Pittsburgh 57
@Wake Forest 76, Florida St 72 - the type of game that bubble teams drop.  Again, given the depth of the league, this is not where you want to spend one of your league losses
@Georgia Tech 55, Syracuse 51 - ditto
Virginia Tech 85, @Boston College 80 (OT) - meanwhile, here's a bubble team holding their ground in a road game

@Seton Hall 73, Providence 57
Butler 92, @Marquette 72

@Texas Tech 73, Texas 71 (OT) - nearly a very dangerous loss for Tech's resume; as is it's status quo for both teams going forward
@Iowa St 93, West Virginia 77 - meanwhile, this is NOT a profile that can afford body blows like this.  Could be worth multiple seeding lines

@Tennessee 84, LSU 61
Mississippi St 81, @South Carolina 76 - what a dumb loss for a fringe bubble team
Missouri 69, @Alabama 60 - when you have bubble vs. bubble, the road team winning is a big deal.  Big boon to Mizzou, big ding to Bama

@Purdue 75, Maryland 67
@Michigan St 76, Penn St 68

Arizona 100, Washington St 72

@Cincinnati 80, Houston 70
@UCF 70, UConn 61

St Bonaventure 85, @George Mason 69 - this only gets Bona back to 5-4 within the A-10.  They're going to need to find a way around everyone back into 2nd by the end of the year

@Bradley 69, Loyola(Chi) 67 - probably endgame for the at-large hopes of the conference.  It's not a bad loss but LUC is in dire need of more signature wins

Wyoming 91, @Colorado St 86 (2OT) - starting to creep into the NIT bubble picture
@Nevada 102, Fresno St 92
