Nine Games that Matter Wednesday; Arizona St. only chance for Breakthrough

While nine Middle 20 teams are in action tonight fighting for a tournament bid, the only team with a chance for a breakthrough is Arizona State, who travels to UCLA for the last game of the night at 11:30 ET. The good news for the other eight teams is that they are favored – but that is actually bad news because they cannot help their chances tonight but a loss would be devastating. The action is starting now where Larry Bird’s Indiana State cannot afford a loss to Drake, ranked only 130th as www.kenpom.com. Here is the complete schedule.

The “big” games tonight are Georgetown-UConn and New Mexico-San Diego State, but those are just positioning for higher seeds except for UConn, who is on probation.
