Tuesday night had some great excitement as Xavier escaped a scare at Butler. Tennessee squeaked out a great win at Kentucky and has now moved up a spot to a 3 seed. Mississippi State got another good win over Alabama and keep playing themselves more and more into the picture to be a tournament team. Michigan lost to Northwestern and really need to turn things around as they are becoming more and more a bubble team. Kansas survived TCU and Michigan State made it past Iowa to stay put where they were at.
