Quad 1 For Both Teams (1/1: 1 Game)

Top 30 at Top 75

18. Rutgers Scarlet Knights (14-4, 5-2 Big Ten) at 27. Iowa Hawkeyes (13-5, 4-3), 9 p.m. (BTN)

While Rutgers has been the surprise of the Big Ten season so far, the Scarlet Knights have only defeated Nebraska on the road. The Hawkeyes, perfect at home since a November 11th loss to DePaul, will aim to keep Steve Pikiell’s club looking for a quality road victory.

Quad 2 For Host/Quad 1 For Visitor (2/1: 6 Games)

31–75 at Top 75

53. Georgetown Hoyas (12-7, 2-4 Big East) at 68. Xavier Musketeers (12-6, 1-4), 6:30 p.m. (FS1)
70. Syracuse Orange (11-7, 4-3 ACC) at 75. Notre Dame Fighting Irish (11-6, 2-4), 7 p.m. (ESPN2)
31. Arkansas Razorbacks (14-3, 3-2 SEC) at 59. Mississippi State Bulldogs (11-6, 2-3), 7 p.m. (SECN)
37. Penn State Nittany Lions (13-5, 3-4 Big Ten) at 29. Michigan Wolverines (11-6, 2-4), 7 p.m. (BTN)
55. Duquesne Dukes (15-2, 5-0 A 10) at 62. Rhode Island Rams (12-5, 4-1), 7 p.m. (Yurview NE/ESPN+ ($))
34. Creighton Bluejays (14-5, 3-3 Big East) at 52. DePaul Blue Demons (13-5, 1-4), 9 p.m. (CBSSN)

The two Big East contests in this group tonight feature teams in slightly different portions of the bubble picture. Georgetown and Xavier both need victories to get to the right side of the cut line, while DePaul will look to pick up a second consecutive win over a league foe that’s a bit more solidly in the field to improve its own standing. Syracuse will look to improve its bubble hopes by winning at Notre Dame after losing to the Fighting Irish at the Carrier Dome. Hey, that approach worked against both Virginia and Virginia Tech! Arkansas needs to be careful on its trip to Mississippi State, as the Razorbacks have yet to win an SEC contest against an actual postseason contender, while the Bulldogs are eager to get themselves into stronger bubble position by winning their third in a row (all in Starkville). In the Big Ten, Michigan returns home following an 0-2 road trip to face a Penn State squad that, as you would expect in this season’s Big Ten, has yet to win a conference road game. In the Atlantic 10, Duquesne puts its perfect league record on the line in Kingston, Rhode Island, where the host Rams will look to knock the Dukes out of first and keep their perfect home record intact.

Quad 1 For Host/Quad 2 For Visitor (1/2: 1 Game)

Top 30 at 76–135

26. Memphis Tigers (14-3, 3-1 AAC) at 85. Tulsa Golden Hurricane (12-6, 4-1), 9 p.m. (ESPNU)

Surprise! The Golden Hurricane are tied with Houston for the American lead, with the Tigers a half-game back.

Quad 2 For Both Teams (2/2: 1 Game)

31–75 at 76–135

54. Saint Louis Billikens (14-4, 3-2 A 10) at 110. Davidson Wildcats (8-9, 2-3), 7 p.m. (Stadium/FS Midwest)

Saint Louis plays its first game since letting Dayton off the hook in OT on Friday night. While the Billikens have a better shot at an at-large than preseason darling Davidson, a road loss to the Wildcats won’t help SLU’s case.

Quad 3 For Host/Quad 1 For Visitor (3/1: 5 Games)

76–160 at Top 75

96. South Carolina Gamecocks (10-7, 2-2 SEC) at 20. Auburn Tigers (15-2, 3-2), 7 p.m. (ESPNU)
128. St. Bonaventure Bonnies (12-6, 4-1 A 10) at 5. Dayton Flyers (16-2, 5-0), 7 p.m. (CBSSN)
97. Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets (8-10, 3-5 ACC) at 10. Louisville Cardinals (15-3, 6-1), 7 p.m. (ACC RSNs/ACCNX)
118. North Carolina Tar Heels (8-9, 1-5 ACC) at 43. Virginia Tech Hokies (13-5, 4-3), 8 p.m. (ACCN)
81. Providence Friars (11-8, 4-2 Big East) at 12. Seton Hall Pirates (14-4, 6-0), 8:30 p.m. (FS1)

Auburn hosts South Carolina with the aim of getting back on track following its first two losses of the season. Dayton, Louisville, and Seton Hall will all look to remain in their respective conferences’ driver’s seats. North Carolina, on the other hand, visits Blacksburg looking to end its second four-game skid of the season against a bubble team that’s in need of yet another win.

Quad 2 For Host/Quad 3 For Visitor (2/3: 2 Games)

31–75 at 136–240

42. Alabama Crimson Tide (10-7, 3-2 SEC) at 141. Vanderbilt Commodores (8-9, 0-4), 9 p.m. (SECN)
35. Northern Iowa Panthers (16-2, 5-1 MVC) at 188. Southern Illinois Salukis (9-10, 3-3), 9 p.m. (FS Midwest/NBCS Chicago Plus/ESPN+ ($))

Bama and UNI, both on the bubble, really can’t afford road losses to sub-140 opponents.

Quad 3 For Host/Quad 2 For Visitor (3/2: 2 Games)

76–160 at 76–135

98. Indiana State Sycamores (10-7, 3-3 MVC) at 103. Loyola Chicago Ramblers (13-6, 5-1), 8 p.m. (ESPN+ ($))
134. UNLV Runnin’ Rebels (11-9, 6-1 MW) at 101. Nevada Wolf Pack (11-8, 4-3), 11 p.m. (CBSSN)

Loyola will look to remain in at least a tie for first in the Valley by beating Indiana State. A Rambler victory should also push them past the Trees in the NET. Meanwhile, it’s UNLV, not Nevada, that’s currently one loss behind undefeated San Diego State in the Mountain West race.

Quad 4 For Host/Quad 1 For Visitor (4/1: 3 Games)

161–353 at Top 75

172. La Salle Explorers (10-7, 1-4 A 10) at 56. Richmond Spiders (14-4, 4-1), 7 p.m. (MASN/ESPN+ ($))
241. East Carolina Pirates (8-10, 2-3 AAC) at 72. SMU Mustangs (13-4, 3-2), 8 p.m. (ESPN3)
171. Boston College Eagles (9-9, 3-4 ACC) at 69. Pittsburgh Panthers (12-6, 3-4), 9 p.m. (ACC RSNs/ACCNX)

Just a trio of bubble teams that need to hold serve at home. Richmond, in particular, needs to take care with a home game with Dayton set for Saturday and a trip to archrival VCU lined up for next Tuesday.

Quad 3 For Both Teams (3/3: 1 Game)

76–160 at 136–240

151. North Dakota State Bison (13-6, 4-1 Summit) at 146. South Dakota State Jackrabbits (14-8, 5-2), 8 p.m. (Midco SN/ESPN3)

The Bison head to Brookings looking to stay ahead of both the Jackrabbits and Oral Roberts in the loss column. While NDSU defeated its in-state archrival on Sunday, SDSU wasn’t so lucky.

Quad 4 For Host/Quad 2 For Visitor (4/2: 2 Games)

161–353 at 76–135

295. Samford Bulldogs (8-12, 2-4 SoCon) at 89. Furman Paladins (15-5, 5-2), 7 p.m. (ESPN+ ($))
215. Illinois State Redbirds (6-12, 1-5 MVC) at 90. Bradley Braves (13-6, 4-2), 8 p.m. (ESPN+ ($))

Furman and Bradley host sub-200 foes as they attempt to stay within touching distance of their respective league leaders.

Quad 3 For Host/Quad 4 For Visitor (3/4: 1 Game)

76–160 at 241–353

86. Stephen F. Austin Lumberjacks (15-3, 6-1 Southland) at 308. Northwestern State Demons (7-9, 4-3), 7 :30 p.m. (NSU stream)

SFA travels from Nacogdoches to Natchitoches looking to win its third straight and maintain control of the Southland race.
