MONDAYGEORGETOWN (21-5, 11-2) AT SYRACUSE (19-8, 8-5)7 p.m.

This has all the trappings of a trap for the Hoyas, who will be just two days removed from today's huge tilt against Pittsburgh and will be visiting a venue where they have won only once in the past 11 seasons. Plus, they will be facing a team playing its final home game of the season and trying to keep its NCAA tournament hopes alive.


AT AIR FORCE (23-5, 10-4)9 p.m.

Brigham Young has led the Mountain West for most of the conference season yet remains the third-most recognized team in the league behind the Falcons and UNLV. That could change with a win here. The schools are tied with the longest active home winning streaks in the country, at 30 games apiece. BYU's streak includes a 61-52 win over Air Force.

WEDNESDAYTEXAS A&M (23-4, 11-2) AT TEXAS (20-7, 10-3)9 p.m.

The Longhorns have showed they're more than just Kevin Durant during a four-game winning streak that has solidified their NCAA tournament credentials. But their home stretch, which includes today's game at Oklahoma and continues through this game and then a finale at Kansas, could put them back in mild jeopardy.

THURSDAYUCLA (24-3, 13-2)

AT WASH. STATE (22-5, 11-4)10 p.m.

The Bruins are a known commodity, a returning Final Four team seemingly destined for a No. 1 seed. But what to make of these Cougars? Washington State had won five straight before Thursday's loss at Oregon, which was just their third during this calendar year. They commit just 10.2 turnovers per game, second in the country.

FRIDAYYALE (12-11, 8-2)

AT PENN (17-8, 8-1)7 p.m.

The Ivy League regular season title is at stake, and unlike every other conference in the country, that actually means something because it means a berth in the NCAA tournament. The Quakers have represented the Ivy on the big stage six of the past eight years, while the Bulldogs haven't been since 1962, when the tournament had 25 teams.
