- UTEP (+6.5) over Mississippi: UTEP is a decent squad in a crappy conference, but they'll have the chance to prove themselves against Mississippi tonight. The Miners have led at half in all of its games this season and the Rebels have depended on their second half runs so far this year. If Mississippi sophomore Murphy Holloway stumbles out of the blocks, UTEP could make an early run and stay in the game.
- #19 New Mexico (-20.5) over Northern Arizona: New Mexico has so much momentum going into this game, now that they've cracked the top 25 for the first time in 10 years. Albuquerque's University Arena will be rocking and I'd be surprised if Northern Arizona gets much past the jumpball.
- Cincinnati (-2) over UAB: The Bearcats just came off a tough loss in double overtime to their crosstown rival Xavier. Look for Cincy to bounce back strong after the emotional game and put away a very physical Alabama-Birmingham team. The fun matchup to watch here will be the guard battle between UC's freshman Lance Stephenson and the Blazers' Elijah Millsap.
