BracketBuster games could be boon to some
Though February's BracketBuster matchups may have little to no effect on March's NCAA tournament brackets, some of the games are extremely compelling.
ESPN announced the 49 matchups between teams from the America East, Big Sky, Big South, Big West, Colonial Athletic Association, MAC, MAAC, MEAC, Missouri Valley, Southern, Ohio Valley, WAC and Summit League on Monday, a schedule headlined by NCAA tournament hopefuls Butler and Siena.
With so many games between teams in one-bid leagues, only two or three matchups have potential NCAA implications. Here's a look at the top five BracketBuster games on Feb. 19-20.
1. Siena at Butler
2. Old Dominion at Northern Iowa
3. Wichita State at Utah State
4. Morgan State at Murray State
5. Louisiana Tech at Northeastern
