+ Game of the Day: Wofford vs BYU

    Jimmer Fredette is a one man show, one of the few players in the country that's must-see. And Wofford can play..

+ Worst Game: Play-In Winner vs Pitt

    Not only will Pitt win huge, but they're not the most entertaining team either.

+ Line of the Day: UW vs New Mexico

    Maybe Hobson's wrist hurts a tad, but no excuse for UNM to still not win easily
