    Sean Kilpatrick, Corey Allen Jr.

    GAME OF THE DAY: No. 20 Memphis at No. 15 Cincinnati, 7:00 p.m. Earlier this season, Cincinnati made a name for themselves when they went into FedEx Forum and put a whooping down on the Tigers. Might it be time for Josh Pastner’s club to exact their revenge? At this point, the only thing on…

    Mar 4, 2014, 4:07 PM EST

    TCU v Iowa State

    GAME OF THE NIGHT: No. 16 Iowa State at Baylor, 7:00 p.m. Baylor is coming on strong of late, having won five of their last six games after starting the Big 12 season by losing eight of their first ten games. They are probably on the right side of the bubble at this point, but…

    GAME OF THE DAY: Kansas State at Oklahoma State, 9:00 p.m. The Wildcats pay a visit to Oklahoma State tonight. The Pokes have come back strong after losing seven straight games, with Saturday’s win over Kansas pushing them onto the right side of the bubble. A loss at home to a Kansas State team that…

    GAME OF THE NIGHT: Iona at Manhattan, 7:00 p.m. (ESPN2) The Gaels have already clinched the MAAC regular season title, but that won’t diminish the importance of this matchup of rivals separated by just ten miles.

    Nick Johnson, Tyrone Wallace

    GAME OF THE NIGHT: Cal at No. 3 Arizona, 9:00 p.m. The last time these two got together, Cal ended Arizona’s undefeated regular season on the same night that Brandon Ashley broke his foot. I think that the Wildcats have some vengeance that they will be looking to exact. Cal, on the other hand, is…
