There were a lot of key conference matchups on a Thursday night where most of the really key action wasn't shown on mainstream television.
- In the lone Big East game of the night, Seton Hall topped Louisville, 80-77, to further dent the Cardinals' at-large hopes. The game featured a missed call on a Seton Hall inbound pass with .7 seconds left that could have given the Cardinals, then down just 2, a new possession to tie or win.
- Tom Crean picked up his first Big Ten road win as Indiana won at Penn State, 67-61. The Nittany Lions are now 0-6 in the conference.
- The Pac-10 is now even messier after Thursday night. Stanford got to .500 in the conference by beating Oregon State, 59-35. The Beavers are now in a tie for last in the league with in-state rival Oregon, who were pounded, 89-57, at California. UCLA is now 3-3 as they defeated Washington, 62-61. Washington State rose above the .500 logjam by defeating USC, 67-60.
- Florida is now at 2-2 in the SEC, thanks to a 71-66 victory at Arkansas.

- Milwaukee at Youngstown State, 7 p.m. ET (ESPNU): The Panthers need a win against the 2-6 Penguins to get back to .500 in the Horizon.
- Mercer at Stetson, 7 p.m. ET (CSS/Full Court): The Bears can join ETSU and Campbell in a first-place tie at the top of the Atlantic Sun with a win in DeLand.
