No. 23 Creighton at No. 2 Villanova

No. 5 UCLA at No. 4 Arizona
UCLA has won five straight and wants revenge for their 96-85 home loss to the Wildcats on Jan. 21, but Arizona has won four straight and nine of its last 10.
Sunday, February 26Syracuse at No. 6 Louisville

No. 22 Butler at Xavier
No. 22 Butler will look stay nationally ranked as they take on a Xavier team that was ranked an ironic 22nd two weeks ago. Butler has won two straight but while Xavier has lost three in a row.
No. 15 Wisconsin at Michigan State
Wisconsin is clearly the better team and a legitimate title contender, but Michigan State is completely desperate and beat the Badgers the last time they met a year ago.
