    UConn vs. Baylor - Game Summary - January 3, 2019 - ESPN

    :music: Ah... The above result is a breath of fresh air for the woman's game. You think something like that will happen in the men's game over the next few weeks? Let your thoughts be known here (and yes, I'll be giving you the latest news here as well)!

    A brief recap of 1/5

    Go figure. The first Saturday of 2019, and already there's mayhem. We have FSU losing to Virginia, Kansas getting out-muscled by Iowa State...

    Nevada vs. New Mexico - Game Summary - January 5, 2019 - ESPN ...and perhaps the most shocking result of the week: Invincible Nevada getting STOMPED by 7-6 New Mexico.

    TTU was close last year... maybe this is the year someone takes down Kansas in the B12.

    Stuff happened on January 9th

    We got some stuff happening! Yesterday, Houston suffered it's first loss of the season against a good Temple team. Markus Howard scored 53 points to lead Marquette to a double-OT win. And as for upsets, Auburn lost to Ole Miss (who doesn't look so bad either, to be honest with you)...

    Ohio State vs. Rutgers - Game Summary - January 9, 2019 - ESPN ...while Ohio State suffered a pretty bad loss to Rutgers. Granted, Rutgers does look better than in previous years, but JEEZ.

    That would be an excellent matchup. But I expect UCF to rise up the rankings and polls.

    January 26th (Games outside of the rankings)

    For soccer fans out there, the 4th Round of the FA Cup is going on right now (and it's good news for teams like Manchester United and Derby County).
    And if you're a CBB fan but you somehow DON'T want to watch the Top 25 action, here's what you can watch instead:

    Florida @ TCU (12:00) [As part of the SEC/Big 12 Challenge]
    Ohio State @ Nebraska (12:00)
    Alabama @ Baylor (12:00) [SEC/Big 12 Challenge]
    Davidson @ Saint Louis (2:00)
    VCU @ Duquesne (2:00)
    Northwestern @ Wisconsin (2:15)
    North Carolina A&T @ North Carolina Central (4:00)
    Washington @ Oregon State (4:00)
    Old Dominion @ UTSA (4:00)
    Belmont @ Austin Prey (4:30)
    Omaha @ South Dakota State (5:15)
    Vermont @ Stony Brook (7:00)
    Arizona State @ USC (8:00)
    Weber State @ Montana (9:00)

    February 2nd (Games outside of the rankings)

    Buffalo vs. Bowling Green - Game Summary - February 1, 2019 - ESPN


    So Buffalo and Michigan both went down last night... That probably means that nothing will happen today in the CBB world... at least outside of Louisville, Kentucky.
    Oh well. At least these games outside of the Top 25 will help:

    Memphis @ South Florida (12:00)
    Georgia Southern @ Georgia State (1:00)
    Duquesne @ Dayton (2:00)
    Radford @ Winthrop (2:00)
    Norfolk State @ Howard (4:00)
    UCLA @ Washington (4:00)
    Hofstra @ Northeastern (4:30)
    Austin Prey @ Jacksonville State (5:00)
    George Mason @ VCU (6:30)
    NJIT @ Liberty (7:00)
    TCU @ Baylor (8:00)
    Alabama @ Auburn (8:00)
    Grand Canyon @ CSU-Bakersfield (10:00)
