1. Syracuse vs. Arkansas: Friday, November 30, 8:30 p.m.
There are several marquee SEC games this week as a result of the coming weekend's SEC/Big East Challenge, and the Razorbacks' shot at Syracuse is one of the headliners. Given Arkansas' poor performance at the Las Vegas Invitational, it is important for the Razorbacks to show well at home against the Orange.
2. Baylor vs. Kentucky: Saturday, December 1, 12:30 p.m.
Most of the names and faces have changed, but Baylor still must remember how easily Kentucky dispatched the Bears in last year's Elite Eight. Baylor is off to a lackluster start to the year, giving them even more motivation to try to steal a win at Rupp Arena.
3. Alabama vs. Cincinnati: Saturday, December 1, 3 p.m.
Despite their strong start to the season, the Crimson Tide have not yet received much national respect. A road win against a ranked Big East team would change that. The Bearcats come off a tournament title of their own, as this week they defeated Iowa State and Oregon to win the Global Sports Classic.
