Bracket Bits: Resume games this week

Dave2015After another busy weekend of college hoops, here’s a quick peek at the upcoming week’s (Monday – Thursday) notable “resume” games …

Oklahoma vs. Villanova  – Pearl Harbor, Honolulu |  Both teams are in line for a high seed come March.  The winner will have an extra notch on its seed line belt.

West Virginia vs. Virginia – Jimmy V Classic, New York  |  This is the type of non-conference victory that pays dividends.  As for Virginia, the Cavaliers would love to ease an early loss at Geo Washington by stamping a marquee win on its pre-ACC resume.

Maryland vs. Connecticut – Jimmy V Classic, New York  |  After dropping close games to Syracuse and Gonzaga at the Battle 4 Atlantis, a win here would put some beef on the Huskies’ non-league slate.

Florida at Miami  |  The Gators have been an early surprise. After this one, they head to Michigan State, a tough back-to-back.  The Hurricanes have been solid, save for the home loss to Northeastern.

Evansville at Arkansas  |  Although not in the “huge” win category, a road win over an SEC team would still help the Aces’ at-large case on Selection Sunday.

Michigan at SMU  |  The host Mustangs may not be in line for an NCAA bid (sanctions), but the Wolverines figure to be.

Fresno State at Arizona  |  Opportunity is knocking for the Bulldogs.

UNLV at Wichita State  |  Been a tough start for the Shockers.  Regardless of that fact, this would be a solid road win for the Rebels after beating Oregon in Vegas.

Dayton at Vanderbilt  |  The last time the Flyers played a ranked team (Xavier), they took a beating.  Vanderbilt is arguably the second best SEC team – at least in perception.

Iowa at Iowa State  |  The Cyclones are a potential top three seed.  The Hawkeyes’ best two NC wins so far are Marquette and Florida State.  This would definitely be a step up.
