COLLEGE BASKETBALL PREVIEW 2006-2007: THE NON-CONFERENCE GAMES TO WATCH
November 8, 2006

SCS.com 2006-2007 Hoops Preview Home

SCS.comThis season is full of great non-conference games. Many would be surprised to see so many contests between the top 10 to 15 teams in the country. However, there is not a fan out there that would complain about the amount of high-quality games on this season's slate. Moreover, there are also dozens of games between potential NCAA Tournament teams and quality mid-major squads. Nearly every night you can sit down and watch a game between NCAA-caliber clubs. Here are the ones you won't want to miss.

Arizona at Virginia - November 12

First really good non-conference game of the year. Is Virginia an NCAA Tournament team? Is Arizona a Final Four threat?

Wichita State at George Mason - November 18

Rematch of last year's Sweet Sixteen game. The Shockers are a top 25-caliber team, while the Patriots are coming off of a Final Four appearance.

Florida vs. Kansas (in Las Vegas) - November 25

Could be #1 vs. #2. Possible preview of a Final Four matchup. In other words, it's the game of the year.

Ohio State at North Carolina - November 29

Marquee game of the ACC-Big Ten Challenge. Will Greg Oden be back? If he is not, Tyler Hansbrough and Co. will destroy the Buckeyes on the interior.

Georgetown at Duke - December 2

Great battle on the inside with Duke's Josh McRoberts going against Georgetown's Roy Hibbert. Can Duke handle the Hoyas' frontcourt?

Winthrop at Wisconsin - December 4

The Eagles are one of the best mid-major clubs in the country and will be on national radar with upset win in Madison.

Louisville vs. Arizona (in New York City) - December 5

Are the Cardinals ready to get back to the NCAA Tournament? Juan Palacios vs. Marcus Williams will be a joy to watch.

Texas A&M at LSU - December 5

Two top 10 contenders. Texas A&M's Joseph Jones and LSU's Glen Davis are two of the best big men in the country.

Memphis at Tennessee - December 6

Are either of these teams as good as they were last season? Expect plenty of points - and turnovers.

UCLA at Texas A&M - December 9

Another tough game for the Aggies. Is Darren Collison a suitable replacement for Jordan Farmar?

Xavier at Creighton - December 9

Two of the best "non-BCS" teams in the country. Both are potential Sweet Sixteen sleepers.

Wisconsin at Marquette - December 9

The great guards of Marquette against the inside-outside balance of Wisconsin. Look out for Marquette's Dominic James and Wisconsin's Kammron Taylor at the point.

Pittsburgh at Wisconsin - December 16

Two potential Final Four threats. All-Americans Alando Tucker (Wisconsin) and Aaron Gray (Pittsburgh) will carry their respective teams.

LSU at Washington - December 20

Can Washington replace Brandon Roy? Freshman Spencer Hawes will have his first test of the season down low for the Huskies.

Ohio State at Florida - December 23

Greg Oden needs to return for OSU to have a chance. Will the Gators still be undefeated?

Boston College at Kansas - December 23

Two of the best small forwards in the country - BC's Jared Dudley and KU's Brandon Rush - will go head-to-head.

Connecticut at LSU - January 6

First test for UConn's young Huskies. LSU wants revenge for last year's one-point loss.

North Carolina at Arizona - January 27

If Arizona can slow down UNC's Tyler Hansbrough, they will be a legitimate Final Four threat in March.

Connecticut at Georgia Tech - February 11

Georgia Tech seems to have all the weapons for a deep run in March. Some of the best freshmen in the country will do battle in this game.

Washington at Pittsburgh - February 17

Old school vs. new school: freshman Spencer Hawes vs. senior Aaron Gray at the center spot.
