21 Games with NCAA Ramifications: Schedule Noon ET to Midnight Saturday

Here is the schedule of Saturday’s 21 games with NCAA tournament implications just 22 days before teams are selected. Action starts at Noon ET with Clemson, which should be OUT of the tournament, trying to go into Maryland for the upset of Alex Len (pictured) and the Terrapins rated No. 17 in the Middle 20 (M17). Arizona State (M15) will still be playing past midnight for their NCAA lives. M1 to M7 in the Breitbart Sports Middle 20 deserve bids, but it gets shaky after than:

Time Visitor Home NCAA bid implications (M = Middle 20 Rank), others deserve to be IN or OUT of tournament
12:00 PM Clemson Maryland Maryland still M17 after win at Duke, so must win all remaining home games – Clemson is OUT.
1:00 PM Iowa Nebraska Iowa playing for high seed, Nebraska OUT.
1:00 PM Southern Miss Memphis We believe M10 Southern Miss deserves consideration, but realistically they need this road upset.
1:30 PM Alabama Louisiana St. M20 Alabama on life support, must have road win at LSU, which is OUT.
2:00 PM Oklahoma St. West Virginia OSU playing for high seed, WVU out.
2:00 PM VCU Xavier VCU playing for high seed, Xavier OUT.
4:00 PM New Mexico Colorado St. Both playing for good seeds.
4:00 PM Detroit Wichita St. Wichita State IN, but facing Detroit All-American Ray McCallum.
4:00 PM North Carolina St. North Carolina Both teams IN but shaky, so loss will hurt either.
4:00 PM Georgetown Syracuse Winner could get a 1- or 2-seed by end of season.
5:00 PM Baylor Oklahoma M4 Baylor should be in, but road win would help.
6:00 PM California Oregon St. Cal fastest riser at M6, and road win could put them solidly IN – OSU is OUT.
6:00 PM Creighton St. Mary’s M2 St. Mary’s still borderline, while Creighton playing for higher seed.
6:00 PM Marquette Villanova M14 needs a few more big wins to get in, while Marquette playing for 1st in Big East and high seed.
7:30 PM Nevada Las Vegas Wyoming UNLV playing for high seed, Wyoming OUT despite hot start.
8:00 PM South Dakota St. Murray St. Nate Wolters at Isaiah Canaan best match-up of two teams that are longshots.
8:00 PM Stanford Oregon Stanford has dropped to M16, so needs road upset.
8:00 PM Kansas St. Texas K-State playing for high seed, Texas OUT.
9:00 PM Missouri Kentucky Missouri in, but loss by M7 Kentucky would bounce them out.
10:00 PM Ohio Belmont Belmont in, but last year’s sweet 16 Ohio a threat.
11:00 PM Washington Arizona St. ASU has risen to M15, but home loss would make bid unlikely.
