Bracket on Deck

First bracket coming tomorrow.

Last Night's GOI
--at Drake 61, Southern Illinois 51. MVC is on notice that The Drake is this year's mid-season favorite.
--at Dayton 83, Akron 81 (2OT). This one did not disappoint, as the Flyers continue their blistering hot start.
--at UMass 95, Houston 89. Very important win for UMass.
--at James Madison 62, VCU 61 . Dukes hold serve at home in an important conference game.
--UALR 84, at New Orleans 75. UALR looks like a serious contender in the Belt West.
--at Tulane 68, LSU 63. As expected, Green Wave took care of the Bengals. TBB estimates that this is John Brady's last season at LSU.
--New Mexico 86, at UTEP 85 (OT). Lobos are 13-2 but lack a quality win.

Tonight's GOI
--Oregon at Arizona State. Sun Devils are playing well at home, including a recent 22-point walloping of Xavier.
--Southern Cal at California. The Pac-10 is going to be fun this year.
--Georgia Southern at Davidson. Time for Davidson to get their ship in order.
--Ohio State at Illinois. Illini are already in serious trouble. A win here would certainly help.
--Providence at Marquette. Friars are looking to validate their solid start.
--Siena at Memphis. Saints are good, but probably not good enough to challenge the Tigers at home. Still, if you like fast-paced hoops, this one is for you.
--West Virginia at Notre Dame. Two teams that look like prime March Bubble Boys.
--UConn at Seton Hall. Another important game in the Big East vast middle.
--UCLA at Stanford. More Pac-10 goodness and a real test for both.
--Virginia at Xavier. Cavs have won at Arizona, so another road win of this magnitude would go a LONG way.
