College Basketball: Weekend's Ten Best

Top games to watch this weekend

This weekend is loaded with great games.  Jeff Borzello discusses the 10 games you simply have to watch"

Southern Illinois at Wichita State (Saturday, 12:00 PM)- Two of the MVC’s four teams fighting for first place. A win here would make the Salukis a lock for the tourney; while the Shockers need a quality win to boost their profile.
Connecticut at Indiana (Saturday, 1:00 PM)- Excellent non-conference battle. If Indiana had D.J. White, they would stand a better chance against the Huskies’ massive frontcourt. Josh Boone, Hilton Armstrong, etc. against Marco Killingsworth will be an interesting matchup.
Marquette at Villanova (Saturday, 2:00 PM)- The Golden Eagles could use another key win for the NCAA Tournament, while Villanova has not looked overly impressive in their past couple of wins.
Arizona at UCLA (Saturday, 4:00 PM)- The Wildcats are currently one game back of the Bruins. UCLA won the first meeting of the two in Arizona, but have suffered several injuries since that game.
Michigan at Iowa (Saturday, 5:10 PM)- Two of the top teams in the Big Ten battle. Both the Wolverines and the Hawkeyes are only a half-game out of first place behind Illinois. Could be the best game of the weekend.
UNC-Wilmington at George Mason (Saturday, 7:00 PM)- The two best teams in the Colonial go at it. The Seahawks and the Patriots are tied for first place at 9-2. A win for either could improve their seeding come March.
Kentucky at Florida (Saturday, 9:00 PM)- One of the best rivalries in the country opens another chapter. Florida had slumped after starting out 17-0, but is now on a 2-game winning streak. Kentucky has won four in a row after struggling the entire season.
Pittsburgh at Georgetown (Sunday, 12:00 PM)- Both teams are 6-2 in the Big East, tied for fourth. The loser could be out of the running for a conference championship, while the winner would solidify themselves as a legit contender.
Oklahoma at Kansas (Sunday, 1:00 PM)- After Oklahoma’s win over Texas and Kansas’ four-game winning streak, this game suddenly means something again. Both teams could conceivably catch the Longhorns in the Big 12 standings if either can get some consistency.
Maryland at North Carolina State (Sunday, 2:00 PM)- The two teams behind Duke in the ACC standings currently battle in an effort to stay within shouting distance of the Blue Devils. The Terrapins and the Wolfpack both suffered a bad non-conference loss last weekend—to Temple and Seton Hall, respectively.
