Weekend Forecast

First, I apologize for having no email link for who knows how long. I was not aware that it had disappeared. There is one to the right now.

Second, thanks for info for the One Stop Shop. I've received many helpful updates on time and TV changes. Keep them coming. With continued proofing, the OSS will be a nice tool for everyone to use during conference tourney time. I've put a permanent link to the right.

No time for a bracket today. I'll try to get two in (Monday and Friday) next week.

Weekend Forecast
--Albany at Boise State.
--Winthrop at Missouri State. Winthrop probably cannot get an AL, but a win by Missouri State would help solidify their profile with another top 100 win.
--Kentucky at Alabama. Bama sure could use a Top 25 RPI win (current total: 0).
--UCLA at Arizona. Southern Cal just knocked off Zona in Tucson, so they will be smarting.
--Mississippi at Arkansas. Win here makes Rebs a serious AL candidate.
--North Carolina at Boston College. Battle for the top of the ACC.
--Memphis at Gonzaga. This one has lost some of its luster since Mushroom Mania and the snapping of GU's 50-game home win streak.
--Louisville at Marquette. Huge game for UL and they try to follow up on the big win at Pitt.
--Indiana at Michigan. Wolverines are on life support.
--Iowa at Michigan State. This probably feels like a must-win for both clubs.
--Texas A&M at Oklahoma. Sooners need a pick-me-up.
--Missouri at Oklahoma State. Cowboys need to snap out of their slump.
--Cornell at Penn. Quakers can put the Big Red two games back with a win.
--Washington at Pitt. Huskies could significantly bolster their OOC profile with this one.
--Oregon at Stanford. Once Mighty Ducks are 2-5 in their last 7.
--Florida at Vanderbilt. Memorial Gym is a dangerous, dangerous venue.
--Georgetown at Villanova. Cats have won 4 straight and have already won at G'town.
--Florida State at Virginia. 'Noles find themselves in need of a win after dropping three straight.
--Austin Peay at Akron. OVC and MAC top dogs go at it.
--Southern Illinois at Butler. The cream matchup of BB weekend.
--Drexel at Creighton. Dragons could really help themselves here.
--Holy Cross at Hofstra. Just an interesting matchup even though both have little hope as AL teams.
--Northern Iowa at Nevada. Can only hurt Nevada; UNI is pretty much toast as an AL>
--Old Dominion at Toledo. ODU is scrapping on the Bubble. A Top 100 road win would not hurt a bit.
--Bradley at VCU. Must win for either to hope for AL.
--Appalachian State at Wichita State. Tough for either of teams as AL's. Too many sub-100 losses for PSU and too many overall losses for WSU.
--Maryland at Clemson. Tigers are 2-6 in their last eight and just lost to Wake. They are in danger of squandering that 17-0 start.
--Georgia Tech at Duke. Jackets broke through on the road at FSU. Duke just stopped their 4-game skid. Someone will come out of this one with some momentum.
