Daily GOI

Last Night's GOI
--Vanderbilt 65, at Alabama 64. Solid road win for a Vandy club that is coming on. Bama is going to have to find some big wins somewhere.
--at Clemson 83, North Carolina 64. UNC has a ways to go to beat elite teams on the road.
--Pitt 67, at UConn 57. Road wins like this are RARE and cherished.
--Mississippi 80, at Georgia 76. Rebels pull one out on the road.
--Wichita State 84, at Indiana State 73. It's apparent where the Shockers are going: Bubbletown, USA, unless they manage a couple of wins over UNI. They host the Panthers next week.
--at Michigan State 60, Minnesota 53. Despite some struggles, it will not be surprising if Sparty totes a 1-seed in March.
--Wisconsin 60, at Northwestern 50. Hughes was huge in crunch time and secured a precious road win for the Badger (now #9 RPI).
--at St. John's 52, Cincinnati 50. Johnnies are very much in the hunt if they can manage a decent BEAST record.
--Missouri 94, at Texas Tech 89 (OT). Tigers are rounding into form.
--at UNLV 76, San Diego State 66. Rebels looking solid with wins over New Mexico and SDSU in their last two.
--at Virginia 82, Georgia Tech 75. Just 2-3 games into the slate, there is only one ACC team that is unblemished in league play...and it's the Cavs.
--at Virginia Tech 81, Miami-FL 66. Hokies hold serve.

Tonight's GOI
--Gonzaga at St. Mary's. Always a treat, and St. Mary's always needs the games against Gonzaga for marquee wins.
--Denver at UL-Lafayette. The Pioneers currently lead the Belt, but are 1-4 on the road this season. They are 5-1 in league...but all 5 wins were home games and the loss was at Troy. If Denver is going to make the leap, they have to win road games like this one. And, 8 of their next 12 are on the road.
