Monday's Pregame Beat: UConn looks to rebound, Missouri tries to avoid trap game

7:00 pm: UConn @ No. 25 Louisville: This is all of a sudden a huge game in the Big East. Louisville has turned their season around, winning four straight games, but they are still having some of the same issues they've had all year long. Namely, they aren't shooting the ball well and they are turning it over too much. UConn, on the other hand, finally earned a win against Seton Hall at home, ending a four game losing streak and, for the first time in weeks, looking like they actually cared about basketball. But that was Seton Hall at home with Herb Pope out. What happens on the road against a team on a roll?

7:00 pm: No. 4 Missouri @ Oklahoma: Missouri is coming off of a huge win against Kansas on Saturday night. Next Saturday, they host Baylor. In the middle, they have to make a trip to Oklahoma. Missouri is 3-2 on the road in league play this season. The last time they were in the Sooner State they lost to Oklahoma State. The ultimate trap game.

Other notable games:

- 9:00 pm: No. 15 Marquette @ DePaul
- 7:00 pm: Wofford @ Davidson
- 9:00 pm: Texas @ Texas A&M
