Wednesday's Pregame Beat

7:00 pm: Vanderbilt @ Tennessee: Big game in the SEC East as Vanderbilt, who is all of a sudden the only undefeated team in the SEC, takes on Tennessee, who lost by 15 at Georgia last week.

7:00 pm: Temple @ Charlotte: If Temple beats Charlotte, they may have all but locked up the A-10 title. Their only difficult road trip the rest of the way is to Richmond, they already beat URI on the road and Xavier at home, and play Dayton at home later in the season.

9:00 pm: Florida State @ Duke: The Seminoles could really use a marquee win, and winning in Cameron would be just that. While they definitely have the size, I'm not sure they have the guard play to hang with Scheyer and Smith.

10:00 pm: BYU @ New Mexico: Game of the night. BYU is looking more and more like a team that can make a run through the tournament. That said, the Pit is a very tough place to play, especially when the Lobos are good. And they are good this year. Darington Hobson and Roman Martinez form one of the most underrated front courts in the country, but if you haven't seen Jimmer Fredette play, he's a lot of fun to watch.
