In The Books

NC State 79, Pittsburgh 74: Big win for the Wolfpack, who still have hope of a bubble bid as the season unfolds. Pitt falls to 1-5 in Kevin Stallings' first trip through the ACC.

Arkansas 62, Texas A&M 60: The Razorbacks escape College Station with a two point win in what may be the Aggies' last call for their tournament hopes.

Arkon 83, Ohio 68: The Zips take a the home win and a two game lead in the MAC East with the win.  Another big home game is up next when West division leader Eastern Michigan visits on Friday.

Wisconsin 68, Michigan 64: The Wolverines battled for much of the game, but couldn't hold on late, allowing Wisconsin to pull away and further damaging their bubble hopes at 2-4 in Big Ten play.

Purdue 91, Illinois 68: The Boilermakers control the ballgame in their return to action since losing to Iowa last week.  Illinois has now lost back-to-back games since last week's win against Michigan put them on the good side of the bubble.

Tipping-Off Tonight

Notre Dame at Florida State: The Irish are the ACC's only undefeated team, but enter the Tucker Center where FSU hasn't lost - or had any real trouble at all - this season.

Florida at South Carolina: The Gators haven't loss since their trip to the Tucker Center on December 11, while the Gamecocks look to have things fixed after a poor December, now 4-0 in SEC play themselves.

Kansas State at Oklahoma State: The Wildcats have dropped 3 of 4 since their 12-1 start to the season, while Oklahoma State is 0-5 in conference and simply looking to play spoiler, it would seem.

TCU at Texas Tech: Two of the Big 12's bubble team's face off in a crucial head-to-head meeting.

Miami FL at Wake Forest: The Hurricanes are on a Tobacco Road swing this week, with a test first against a Wake Forest team that simply hasn't been able to keep up with the ACC's better teams, followed by a Duke team that has seemed lost without Coach K on their bench.
