Florida St-

Florida St is red hot on a 6 game win streak with highlighted wins over No.6 Duke and Miami twice. They sit at 13–5 overall and sit atop the ACC, this team is very dangerous.


TCU has been a team that sat right on the bubble for a while but their resume lacked a big win. Well they just got exactly that, as they won 59–44 in Iowa St. TCU’s perimeter defense has been phenomenal especially after holding Iowa St to 3–26 from the 3-point range Saturday. TCU provides legitimacy to their resume and should be in the field currently.


Loyola Chicago-

Look I get it they were just riding a 10 game win streak before losing to Missouri St Saturday. However, Missouri St crushed the Ramblers 79–69 and the final score makes the game seem closer than it truly was. The Ramblers were down by more than 20 at one point in this game. Something Loyola Chicago could really use is a another big win. Their best win is San Francisco which granted, is a very good win but they could definitely use another to prove their legitimacy.


LSU has dropped a third straight after losing to Tennessee 64–50 on Saturday. The team has been playing without point guard Xavier Pinson and haven’t been able to replicate a more consistent offensive efficiency. LSU hosts Texas A&M on Wednesday in a big game to get back on track.
