Hello out there in FanIQ Land!  It's a Saturday full of top 25 action on the court.  We've got 20 of the top 25 teams in action, including the top 6 teams.  Despite allegations of Jim Boeheim and Syracuse being sued for defamation in the Bernie Fine saga, the Orange are the #1 team in the land.  Michigan State after beating a very worthy opponent, is back in the rankings again at #21.  There will be some very tough games for our top 25.  #23 Alabama plays only its 2nd road game.  They lost in Dayton in their only other road game by a decisive 12-point margin.  Tonight they travel to Little Manhattan to battle Kansas State, that's a very tough game.  #25 Vandy plays host to an Indiana State team who comes in at a very impressive 7-2.  #19 Illinois is one of the remaining undefeated teams, but will host a 10-2 UNLV squad who dealt the Tar Heels their first loss of the season when they were the #1 team in the country.  #18 Indiana hasn't played in a week.  Their last game was a buzzer-beater to knock off #1 Kentucky last Saturday.  Today they travel to South Bend to face the 7-4 Irish.  Those 7 wins have all been on the home court for the Irish though.  #4 Louisville also tries to keep its perfect record intact as they host former conference foe Memphis.  #22 Texas A&M plays their first true road game of the year, and what a way to kick off your road schedule.  They travel to Gainsville to square off with the #13 Florida Gators.  #6 Baylor also puts their perfect record on the line as they travel westward to face BYU, who comes in at 8-2.  You can check today's Yahoo! scoreboard for the full list of games on the schedule.  Here's the highlighted games for this afternoon and tonight...
