weekend (hoops) update:
+first of all, read jay bilas' previews of syracuse at pitt, duke at maryland, and notre dame at kentucky.
+then get ready for some nice big ten matchups saturday. purdue should get their first road win at penn state, and michigan state has a tough road contest at minnesota - but the big game is illinois at indiana, two fairly evenly-matched teams both battling for the big ten crown. the word we use in the hoosier state for a game like this is "barnburner."
+in the big 12, there's a dandy of a game in missouri at oklahoma state, while out west, lute olson's boys will try to bang another nail into steve lavin's coffin as 'zona visits pauley pavillion. back on the east coast, xavier's got a game at umass - never an easy place to get a win.
+in mid-major land, butler hosts youngstown state and marshall visits kent state. creighton, meanwhile, takes their 14-1 mark on the road to southern illinois, in a bang-up matchup between the two teams sitting atop the missouri valley conference with 5-0 marks.

as kiss taught us, lick it up, folks. it's only right, now.
