Weekend Forecast 2/1-2/3

Sometime this weekend, I will also post my final BracketBuster's standings and predictions. ESPN will announce the official pairings on Monday.

Last Night's GOI
--at Austin Peay 92, Murray State 87. The Govs stopped the red-hot Racers and maintained their OVC lead.
--at Chattanooga 96, GA Southern 91. Chatty maintains a one game lead in SoCon North.
--at Duke 92, NC State 72. It really does seem like UNC, Duke, and everyone else in the ACC.
--at North Carolina 91, Boston College 69. Yeah. What I just said.
--at North Texas 70, South Alabama 68. We warned you that the Mean Green was tough at home (now 9-1). This is USA's first Belt blemish and it drops them into a tie with WKU in the Belt East.
--at Notre Dame 81, Providence 74 (OT). Friars are sliding off the Bubble.
--Arizona 80, at Southern Cal 69. Cats are a dangerous, DANGEROUS team that are putting it together right now.
--at UCLA 84, Arizona State 51. Devils lose fourth straight, and they lost HUGE.
--at Wisconsin 62, Indiana 49. Kohl Center is a tough venue, and IU has looked vulnerable in their last couple of outings. Their best win is still Illinois State.

--Florida at Arkansas. One will solidify themselves as a legit NCAA team with a win here.
--Davidson at Chattanooga. SoCon's divisional leaders.
--Marquette at Cincinnati. Suddenly, no one wants to play the Bearcats.
--Boston College at Clemson. There are FIVE ACC teams at 3-3. Here are two of them.
--Pittsburgh at UConn. To stay in the "separation group" at the top of the Big East.
--Seton Hall at Georgetown. SHU has won five straight.
--Maryland at Georgia Tech. Two more 3-3 ACC teams.
--Drake at Indiana State. Trees are 9-0 at home. Drake is 10-0 in the Valley.
--Tennessee at Mississippi State. Dogs just took a beating at Arkansas, but have a monster home game here that would heal the wounds.
--West Virginia at Providence. Both need it, but Friars need it more.
--Dayton at Rhode Island. Massive A-10 tilt.
--Rider at Siena. Winner gets first all alone in the MAAC.
--Baylor at Texas. Horns win would pull them into a tie with Baylor at 4-2.
--Oklahoma at Texas A&M. Aggies need to hold serve at home.
--Arizona at UCLA. Clash of titans that are both playing well.
--Winthrop at UNC-Asheville. The biggest game no one will be talking about.
--Nevada at Utah State. A Pack win would tie them for first in the loss column.
--Syracuse at Villanova. Classic Big East Bubble Boys.
--Stanford at Washington State. Cougars cannot afford a loss here if they have Pac-10 title hopes.
--Wisconsin at Minnesota. Gophers have to make a move soon to get into the conversation.
--Wake Forest at NC State. ACC Bubblers.
