Key games this weekend (Rankings based off of AP Poll)
14.Arkansas at. 13.Tennessee (Saturday, 12 PM ET, ESPN)
Among the top four teams in the SEC, home teams are 65-1 this season (the one loss is Arkansas’ in early January against Vanderbilt). Whoever wins this game will have a shot at apart of the SEC crown with both having wins over Auburn, who has already clinched apart of the SEC title, and sits at . Arkansas (13-4 in the SEC) defeated Tennessee (13-4 in the SEC) 58-48 in Bud Walton Arena two weeks ago. But Tennessee is 17-0 at Thompson-Boiling Arena this season. Arkansas has wins over Auburn, Kentucky, and LSU during their run of fourteen wins in their last fifteen games as well as their most recent win over LSU 77-76. Tennessee themselves is winners of three straight, defeating last place Georgia 75-68. It is going to be an incredible game, that is all I know. Projected Score: Tennessee 70, Arkansas 69
21.Texas at. 6.Kansas (Saturday, 4 PM ET, ESPN)
Kansas has struggled as of late. Kansas has lost two out of their last three games to Baylor and TCU and have lost their standing as a one seed in the NCAA Tournament. Texas, despite a loss to Baylor on Monday, has gotten wins over West Virginia and TCU since their last loss to Texas Tech. In their first meeting, Texas upset Kansas 79-76. This could be a perfect situation for Kansas, though, as they get a senior day match up in Phog Allen to sure up a top two seed in the Big 12 Tournament next week (or potentially winning a share of the Big 12 Regular Season Championship). Projected Score: Kansas 80, Texas 74
North Carolina at. 4.Duke (Saturday, 6 PM ET, ESPN)
I previewed this game in a full post, if you want to check it out. Projected Score: Duke 92, North Carolina 80
16.USC at. 17.UCLA (Saturday, 10 PM ET, ESPN)
With the LA rivals coming into the game both at 14-6, a win for either team would put them as the two seed in next week’s Pac-12 Tournament in Las Vegas. USC will need production from big man Isaiah Mobley (14 points, 9 rebounds per game) but with UCLA at home, it would be huge for UCLA to get revenge on the Trojans and grab another quad one win for their resume. UCLProjectA point guard Tyger Campbell (12 points and 4 assists per game) and wing Johnny Juzang (17 points, 5 rebounds, 2 assists per game) will need to be at their best to get a win for the Bruins. Projected Score: UCLA 76, USC 71
