College Hoops - Jan 25-26

Key matchups, courtesy espn's Andy Katz:

Saturday
Notre Dame at Boston College (ESPN, 2 ET): The Eagles are suddenly playing well. This is their rival game and the Eagles should be up to pick up their first top 25 win of the season.

Louisville at Tennessee (ESPN2, 5 ET): This was a last-second game last season. But the Cardinals are much improved, which spells trouble for the Vols. The Ron Slay-Marvin Stone matchup in the post should be worth watching.

Kentucky at Alabama (ESPN, 8 ET): The Tide needs to get a big-time home win after struggling on the road. This would qualify.

Penn vs. Saint Joseph's: This Big Five classic game takes on more importance after the Hawks' loss at Rhode Island. The Quakers are one of the better shooting teams in the country, but the Hawks don't give up the easy 3-pointer.

Georgetown at Pittsburgh: The Hoyas need to prove they're a real contender. Beating Pittsburgh, or at least being competitive, will make a statement. The Panthers could struggle to hang with Michael Sweetney in the post.

Villanova at Connecticut: The Wildcats can show they should be taken seriously as a threat to win the Big East East Division with a win at Connecticut.

Auburn at Georgia: The second of two real road tests comes here for the Tigers. Georgia has the answers defensively to guard Marquis Daniels at small forward.

LSU at Mississippi State: The Tigers are struggling after losing to Ole Miss at home. Don't expect them to get healthy playing in the house of the desperate Bulldogs.

Maryland at Clemson: This is the kind of game, if Maryland should lose, that could keep the Terps from winning the ACC. Clemson is feeling pretty good about itself after beating Virginia at home.

Arizona at Kansas: One of the most anticipated games of the season has the potential to be a great one. Kansas is ready to play Arizona, even without Wayne Simien. The Jayhawks can run with the 'Cats and the question will be can they keep them off the boards? And should they storm the court if they beat the No. 1 team in the country? We say no, not at Kansas.

Missouri at Texas: The Tigers are hurting without Ricky Clemons. Jimmy McKinney will have his hands full trying to stop T.J. Ford at the point.

Oklahoma at Baylor: The Bears could play spoilers this week against both Oklahoma schools.

Utah at BYU: The rivalry game returns to its rightful place as the best game of the Mountain West season. Both teams are legitimate contenders for the title.

UCLA at Cal: This could be real ugly if the Bruins are struggling. Cal has established one of the best homecourt edges in the league, just behind Arizona and Oregon.

USC at Stanford: The Cardinal has to win this game to stay in the race. The Trojans could be trying to avoid a sweep in the Bay Area.


Sunday
Syracuse at Miami: The Orangemen could be the next victims in Miami. Syracuse has the talent to beat the 'Canes, but are they tough enough to win consistently on the road?

North Carolina at N.C. State: The Wolfpack need two wins this week to re-establish themselves in the triangle. Beating Duke and Carolina would certainly qualify.

Michigan State at Michigan: The Wolverines would like nothing more than to put the Spartans back in their place within the state. Michigan State hasn't been this ripe for a Michigan win in five years.

Oklahoma State at Texas Tech: The Cowboys tough road week continues with the hardest road test to date in Lubbock.

I think this is a critical game for Kansas, since they are supposedly a national championship contender. Once again the look-ahead factor reared its ugly head as Kansas lost to Colorado on Wednesday night. If Kansas can't beat Arizona in Lawrence, I find it hard to believe that they contend for a national title in March.

The UNC/State could be huge. UNC has a tough 4-game stretch ahead of them: @State, @GT, vs Wake, @Duke so stealing a road game is almost a must. This could be the one since State could be due for a let-down after beating the Dookies.

Obviously, whenever MD goes on the road this season, I am always nervous. A win at Littlejohn would give them 2 road wins for the week which would be sweet.

That's Comcast for you. I'll probably catch the 2nd half at the house where I am partying for the Super Bowl. They have Direct-TV so they should have the alternate Fox Sports Net affiliates who will have it live.

Can't wait until Kansas vs Arizona. Although I'm not a fan of either team, I'm rooting for the 'Cats to represent the Pac-10 well, since nobody else seems to be any good (except maybe Cal )

KU owned Arizona in the first half, but Arizona's bench wore out our starting 5 in the second half.

Cal beats UCLA handily 80-69 tonight at Haas Pavilion. Cal is now 7-0 in the Pac-10 and 14-2 overall before heading to play the Arizona schools on the road this week. Their only losses are to a tough Georgia team in OT, and to Kansas, both on neutral courts.

Although the Pac-10 is weakened this year, and Cal really hasn't beaten anyone of note (Oregon, Stanfurd, UCLA all struggling this year), it is nice to take care of business and see how well we match up against the the Arizona schools.

Purdue beat the living crap out of IU.

There isn't nearly enough rioting going on around here right now. Stupid cold weather!

Is it the consensus of the forum that we can pencil in the Longhorns as a Final Four team?

Yeah - pencils have erasers.

So much for the guarantee I see.

I'll take a win in any game where Maryland can't break into double-digits in the first 17 minutes of play.

This game started to remind me of the Notre Dame and Wake Forest games. MD shot the ball terrible. The only difference was Clemson shot the ball terrible also. Blake had a terrible game. He is trying to force to many bad passes and giving up to many turnovers.

That was an awesome game. A great sequence near the end where Hinrich gets blocked, Ford gets the rebound races up the court for the layup but gets blocked by Jeff Graves then Kansas gets the ball back for a hoop by Miles(?). Awesome, awesome game. Kansas was finally able to win a tough one.
