Monday, January 21: #21/20 Cincinnati at #3/4 Syracuse (2:30pm Central, ESPN) - An afternoon trip to the Carrier Dome to face the 5-0 Orange is a nasty turnaround for the Bearcats, and it's probably a safe bet that Cashmere Wright will not be available for this one.

Monday, January 21: Georgetown at #24/23 Notre Dame (6:30pm Central, ESPN) - This one probably isn't going to win any style points. After losing to USF on Saturday, the Hoyas need a win over a top team to try to shine up their NCAA tournament profile.

Wednesday, January 23: St. John's at Rutgers (6pm Central, Big East Network) - Both teams are 3-3 in conference play right now and a win here would go a long way towards figuring out their post season future.

Wednesday, January 23: South Florida at Seton Hall (6pm Central, ESPNU) - USF got their first Big East win of the season on Saturday, and they're going to get s chance at a second win against the turnover prone Pirates.

Saturday, January 26: #5/5 Louisville at Georgetown (11am Central, ESPN) - Remember how I said that Georgetown needed a win to enhance their NCAA tournament profile? If they don't get it against ND, things won't be getting easier against the Cardinals.
