@Providence 76, Villanova 71 - hey, a signature win for a bubble team!
@Xavier 102, Seton Hall 90
St John's 77, @DePaul 76
Kansas St 82, @Oklahoma St 72 - well okay, road win! A pretty big deal here for KSU's resume
@Auburn 76, Kentucky 66
@Vanderbilt 81, Mississippi St 80
Georgia 72, @Florida 69 (OT) - this comes on the heels of just about everyone moving on from Georgia as a viable at-large team. Now we have to pay attention to them again, so annoying
@Florida St 81, Clemson 79 - home signature win! These wins aren't magic elixirs, FSU still has to hold the line, but it's a big one for now. Bigger deal at the moment for me is what this does to the 3 lines and 4 lines. Clemson's in a weird spot
@Duke 74, Virginia Tech 52
NC State 74, @Syracuse 70 - in a bubble v bubble battle, road wins are precious, and home losses are devastating. Syracuse off the cutline for now
@Michigan 74, Iowa 59
@Indiana 78, Illinois 68 - NIT bubble action!
Nevada 77, @Boise St 72 - this is a big deal to Nevada's seed line...and Boise's at-large hopes, which are very much in peril with a signature win chance by the boards
@San Diego St 87, Wyoming 77 - NIT bubble action!
@UCF 72, South Florida 57
Memphis 70, @SMU 67 - a surprising slide for SMU, and they're done and dusted here
@Loyola 80, Valpo 71 - Loyola just about has the MVC won, so we'll reintroduce them to the at-large board, only because a 6-loss team from the #8 conference would get at-large consideration in general
