Bracketology Scoreboard Watching

In The Books

Virginia 53, North Carolina 43: Last weekend it was the Cavaliers who couldn't get out of the low 40s on the road.  This time it was the ACC leading tar heels, who host Duke on Sunday.  A win gives UNC the outright title.
 
Baylor 71, West Virginia 62: The win keeps Baylor alive for a high as a second place finish still in the Big 12.
 
Kansas 73, Oklahoma 63: Oklahoma held a double-digit lead midway through the second half, then KU closed on a 31-9 run to hold onto their #1-overall seed.

Virginia Tech 66, Miami 61: The win is Virginia Tech's 10th in ACC play, along with a pretty good non-conference schedule and the Hokies should be good to go. UNC Greensboro 72, East Tennessee St. 66: A big shakeup at the top of the SoCon standings on their final regular season date as Greensboro takes the #1-seed, Furman takes the second and ETSU falls to the third season.

Tipping Off Tonight

Oklahoma State at Iowa State: Both teams have been hot as of late, as Iowa State is playing for the #2-seed in the Big-12 Tourney.
 
Florida State at Duke: Grayson Allen is listed as questionable (as of this writing), which could be a big deal.  The Noles struggle on the road, but they're worlds deeper than the Blue Devils, which carried them to victory in Tallahassee in January.
 
Pitt at Georgia Tech: A must win for Georgia Tech, no other way to put it.
 
Vanderbilt at Kentucky: The Commodores likely need to at least split their final two games - this one at Rupp and a home game with second place Florida - to earn a bubble bid.
