Mississippi’s Marshall Henderson was called the basketball Johnny Manziel of the SEC for his sometimes wild, sometimes unstoppable play. Manziel may see Henderson play tonight at Texas A&M in a big game, but in this case it is a big game because Mississippi has cooled off and dropped to No. 6 in the Breitbart Sports Middle 20, five spots from not making the NCAA. Only the top 10 teams in the Middle 20 are on course to be selected for March Madness in 31 days, so the road trips for Mississippi, La Salle and Iowa State tonight are the real big games because losses in these toss up games could put them out of the tourament.
Here is the new Breitbart Sports Middle 20 heading into tonight (only 10 of these should make March Madness, with Oregon being the most likely and St. Louis the second most likely, etc.).
|1||Oregon||P12||at 82 Washington||11:00 PM|
|3||La Salle||A10||at 111 St. Bonaventure||7:00 PM|
|4||Baylor||B12||vs 94 WVU||9:00 PM|
|6||Mississippi||SEC||at 96 Texas A&M||7:00 PM|
|7||Iowa St.||B12||at 95 Texas||8:00 PM|
|13||Southern Mississippi||CUSA||vs. 143 Tulane||8:00 PM|
|19||Arizona St.||P12||at 136 Utah||8:00 PM|
