Ohio State at Illinois (7 p.m./ESPN)
The Big Ten's hottest November team visits the Big Ten's second hottest January team
Creighton at Evansville (7 p.m./ESPNU)
It's like a normal ace, except it's purple.
NC State at Duke (8 p.m./Raycom/ESPN FullCourt)
If you thought Duke was the second most likely team to win the national championship last week. I hope your hand is still up.
Virginia at Maryland (8 p.m./Raycom/ESPN FullCourt)
If things keep going the way they are, some very lucky average program from a BCS conference might have Gary Williams roaming its sideline this time next year.
Colorado at Texas Tech (8 p.m./FS Southwest/ESPN FullCourt)
The state of Colorado sucks at basketball.
Tennessee at Vanderbilt (9 p.m./ESPN)
The state of Tennessee is not nearly as good at basketball as it was a season ago.
Depaul at South Florida (9 p.m./ESPNU)
Mark my words: the importance of this game in the race for 16th place in the Big East won't be fully realized until early March.
Michigan State at Penn State (9 p.m./Big Ten Network)
The 876th straight game on the BTN for the Nittany Lions.
Air Force at Colorado State (10 p.m./The Mountain)
The state of Colorado really sucks at basketball...it's not really much better at football, either. Go Avs.
