Wyoming-San Diego

Press Notes

San Diego State (19-8; 12-3 Mountain West Conference), winners of 11 of its last 13, 13 of its last 16
and 15 of its last 19 games, looks to clinch the 2006 MWC
championship outright.
The Aztecs clinched at least a share of the
conference crown with its 73-66 victory over New Mexico
at The Pit. The victory also allowed SDSU to improve
to 7-5 in road/neutral games and 6-2 on the road in the MWC.
Wyoming has lost four straight
with its last win coming against TCU back on Feb. 8.
The four-game losing streak is a bit deceiving as the Cowboys’ four defeats
have come by a combined 11 points at Air Force, at New
, vs. Brigham Young and vs. Colorado


Press Notes

Duquesne (3-22, 1-13), coming off a 77-76 home loss to St.
Bonaventure on Saturday, completes the road portion of the 2005-06 schedule at Charlotte
(17-10, 10-4). The Dukes, who are looking to end a seven-game losing streak,
are 1-10 on the road. This is DU’s first game at Charlotte
since December of 1993. Charlotte, the only team in the A-10 with a better
record on the road (9-3) than at home (7-6) is coming off a 77-74 Halton Arena loss to Saint Louis on Saturday.

St. John’s-Villanova

Press Notes

Villanova Men’s Basketball Game Notes for Wednesday night’s
game between No. 4/4 Villanova (22-3, 12-2 Big East) and St. John’s (12-13, 5-9
Big East). The teams will be playing on Senior Night at the Pavilion, where
Villanova will honor its five graduating seniors along with two student


Press Notes

Miami (15-12,
7-7 ACC) enters the contest having lost four of its last five games, but did
defeat Virginia Tech, 70-59, in its last game on Feb. 22.


Press Notes

Utah leads
the all-time series 7-1. In their last meeting, Utah
took an 80-45 win over TCU in Salt
Lake City
on Jan.
28, 2006


Press Notes

begins the homestretch of its regular season with a mid-week contest at Florida
Almost two months have passed since these two teams first met in Athens,
where Florida took a 90-72
victory. The Bulldogs arrive at this game with a 15-12 record, 5-9 in SEC
games.  Their overall mark represents a 7-game improvement from last
season, their SEC record an advancement of 3 games
from 2005.  Most recently, however, Georgia
dropped an 83-68 decision at Miss. State,
a game in which the visiting Bulldogs led at halftime. Florida
gained this advantage in the series by winning the past four meetings, going
back to the second matchup of the 2004 season. In the past 10 years, Georgia
has had virtually as much success in Gainesville
as any other SEC venue.  Over that span, Bulldog teams have posted four
wins, second only to the five recorded at Vanderbilt.

Virginia-North Carolina

Press Notes

North Carolina
understandably struggled at times in the season after losing all of its stars
from last year’s run to the national title. The young Tar Heels, though, are
playing their best basketball of 2005-06 at the right time, and can clinch the
second seed in the ACC tournament when they face Virginia
on Wednesday. The No. 13 Tar Heels (19-6, 10-4) go for their sixth straight win
and look to exact some revenge against the Cavaliers (14-11, 7-7) as the teams
meet at the Smith Center.
North Carolina’s only loss in its
last nine games was a hard-fought 87-83 home defeat to then-No. 2 Duke on Feb.
7. With players like freshman Tyler Hansbrough and
junior Reyshawn Terry starting to assert themselves,
the Heels can lock up the No. 2 seed in the conference tourney with a victory
Wednesday. Virginia has been
inconsistent of late, losing two of its last three games to fall into a
fifth-place tie in the ACC with Florida
and Miami.
The Cavaliers followed one of their most impressive wins of the season, a 72-58
victory over then-No. 11 Boston College
last Tuesday, with one of their worst efforts in a 90-64 loss to Clemson on

shot 43.8 percent from the field and committed a season-high 29 turnovers
against the Tigers, including 16 in the first half.
