The Good

In the A-10: Xavier became the first NCAA-bound A-10 team to win at Saint Louis, which pretty much makes the Musketeers the front-runner, doesn't it? Especially if Temple loses there...

In the SEC: Ole Miss ended its losing streak by beating woeful Auburn.

 

The Bad

In the A-10: Dayton greeted the NIT with open arms by losing to Temple 49-41 in a game that would have made the Big Ten shudder at its ugliness. Unless the Flyers win their conference tournament, their bubble has burst.

In the SEC: Alabama continued to sink further into the sub-100 depths of the RPI by losing at Mississippi State.

 

The Ugly

Nebraska was swept by Iowa State, cementing the Huskers' status as potentially one of the worst Big 12 teams ever.
