Notre Dame Fighting Irish over Indiana Hoosiers – Saturday

Notre Dame wins this game by double digits over the Hoosiers.
Oklahoma Sooners over Wichita State Shockers – Saturday
Gregg Marshall and his Wichita State Shockers are 3rd in the nation, and have a home game against a Big 12 school. The Oklahoma Sooners are not bad on their own with just a single loss on the season.

Arizona State Sun Devils over Vanderbilt Commodores – Sunday
There is not a team in College Basketball that is hotter than the Arizona State Sun Devils. One of the 7 remaining unbeaten teams get a chance to take on a struggling Vanderbilt team. The Commodores are 3-6 heading into this week, with the worst record in the SEC. Look for a little bit of a struggle, as Vanderbilt hangs around, but in the end, the Sun Devils remain unbeaten.
North Carolina Tar Heels over Tennessee Volunteers – Sunday
