Key Games this Week

Pittsburgh at West Virginia (Monday)- Both teams are fighting for byes in the Big East Tournament, as well as seeds in the NCAA Tournament.
Fairleigh Dickinson at Monmouth (Monday)- Winner gets the Northeast Conference title. FDU has made it interesting by losing two in a row.
Cincinnati at Seton Hall (Tuesday)- Two bubble teams looking for a win. A win for the Bearcats could wrap up a bid, while the Pirates are in a must-win situation.
Kentucky at Tennessee (Wednesday)- Tennessee is fighting for the SEC title, while Kentucky is fighting for an NCAA bid. A road vs. the Vols would make them a lock.
Duke at Florida State (Wednesday)- Rematch of one-point OT win at Cameron last month. FSU is on the bubble, and this win would definitely help them out.
Texas at Texas A&M (Wednesday)- Texas A&M rising towards a bid, but lack a win to hang their hat on. A victory over the Longhorns would do the trick.
Colorado at Kansas (Wednesday)- Kansas is still fighting for a share of the Big 12 title, while Colorado could really use a win in order to boost their at-large case.
Miami (Fl.) at Maryland (Wednesday)- Both teams on the bubble and in need of a win. The loser is done, while the winner still has a lot of work to do.
Virginia at North Carolina (Wednesday)- Virginia is atrocious on the road, but a win here would do wonders for their at-large profile. UNC shooting for a Top-3 seed.
Memphis at UAB (Thursday)- UAB, like so many teams, could use a big-time win against a top team to strengthen their at-large hopes. They might have the best chance to pull the upset, though.
UCLA at California (Thursday)- This game could end up deciding the Pac-10 title. If Cal wins, they complete a sweep of the Bruins, and could lock up a bid in the process.
Wisconsin at Michigan State (Thursday)- Neither team playing exceptionally well lately, and their seeds are slipping in the NCAA Tournament. Both would love a win.
Seton Hall at Pittsburgh (Friday)- Pittsburgh in the mix for a bye in the Big East Tournament, while Seton Hall could boost their at-large hopes with a huge road win.
