Sure, there's that Bucknell-Northern Iowa tilt, but this is the only game in BracketBusterLand that matches up the current leaders from two of America's premier mid-major conferences. In the midst of the Four-Bid Valley discussion (or 5BV or 6BV, if you swing that way), Wichita State (21-6, 12-4 MVC) leads the Mo-Val by a game and owns its highest RPI (15). If you look at their schedule, you'll notice that they've beat all different styles of squads with their team-first approach, and as such may stand as the league's best chance to go deep into March.
George Mason (20-5, 14-2 CAA) has a seven-game win streak and leads the Colonial by a single game, and a win here in a tough environment would be the spark that relights the powderkeg of the "Two-Bid CAA" (2BC?) discussion. The game will feature the best post matchup you'll see all day - Mason's linebacker-like Jai Lewis and the Shockers' Paul Miller will do more butt-bumping than you'll see at a fraternity Disco Night fundraiser. It's on ESPN2, be there.
