Complete One Stop Shop

I. Who can trip up the runaway 1-seeds on their road to Indy? Read my thoughts on

II. The One Stop Shop is complete and open for business.
All thirty conference brackets are up. There are conference tourney games every night from now until Selection Sunday.

III. Last Night's GOI

--at Alabama 71, Auburn 61. Tide is in great shape.
--at Arkansas 80, Mississippi State 70. Hogs are also virtually locked.
--at BYU 77, Colorado State 69. Cougars need to win out to MWC final.
--at Florida State 79, Duke 74. 'Noles are back in contention.
--at Houston 74, Rice 71. Cougars are still fringe-Bubble at best.
--at Kansas 75, Colorado 54. Buffs needed this one and got waxed.
--at Maryland 65, Miami-FL 61. At-large hopes for Canes are probably gone for good.
--Vanderbilt 77, at Mississippi 62. This keeps Vandy alive.
--at North Carolina 99, Virginia 52. Cavs are done.
--Indiana 70, at Purdue 59. IU is back in the mix.
--Kentucky 80, at Tennessee 78. Cats locked it up last night with a big road win.
--at Texas A&M 46, Texas 43 . Aggies put themselves into the conversation.

IV. Tonight's GOI
--UCLA at California. Cal could use a big win and an RPI boost (currently 61).
--Syracuse at DePaul. Orange need to TCB.
--Wisconsin at Michigan State. Pretty important for seeding purposes and the Big Televen pecking order.
--Memphis at UAB. This would go a LONG way for the Blazers.
--Atlantic Sun, Big South, Missouri Valley, Northeast, and Southern conference tourneys are all active tonight. Check the OSS above or to the right.
