Murray State vs. St. Mary's

This weekend we have some great college basketball games. It’s Bracketbuster weekend! It’s make or break for some teams this weekend.. Here are the best games

Murray State
(24-1, 12-1 OVC) vs. St. Mary’s (23-3, 12-1 WCC) – Believe it or not Murray State, the last undefeated team in college basketball this season, needs this win. They aren’t a lock for the NCAA Tournament. St. Mary’s is a lock. This should be a great game between two very talented mid-majors.

Drexel (22-5, 14-2 CAA) vs. Cleveland St. (20-7, 10-5 Horizon) – Both teams are in the top of their respective conferences. I think both teams have at-large aspirations which means they’re going to need this game. To be honest, I don’t think either team wins their conference automatic bid (maybe Cleveland St.). This game is huge.

Long Beach St. (19-6, 12-0 Big West) vs. Creighton (22-5, 12-4 MVC) -Creighton needs to turn things around, and they need to do it now. Long Beach St. is pretty much a lock to win the Big West. Creighton has work to do.

Nevada (22-4, 10-1 WAC) vs. Iona (20-6, 12-3 MAAC) – Nevada seems to have the WAC on lock, but Iona is going to have a little fight for the MAAC. Great matchup to measure two conference leaders.
