This is one of the lighter midweek slates you’ll fine, and probably for good reason since the season is coming to an end soon enough.

Tuesday’s action begins shortly with Mizzou battling Iowa on the road in Iowa City. The Tigers are looking to clinch the 30-win mark, as they head into the game with a 29-15 record overall. Elsewhere, Tennessee hosts Morehead State, as the Volunteers look to rebound off bad sequence, as they’ve lost three of four including two of three to Georgia over the weekend.

Meanwhile, Vanderbilt takes the stage Tuesday night in their battle with Louisville. Louisville is 29-14 on the year with an RPI of 49, while Vanderbilt is 25-18 and 32nd in the RPI. This could be a big win for Vandy if they take the Cards down, but the Cards are certainly desperate at this point with that standing in the RPI. Lastly, Texas A&M will welcom eloly Prairie View A&M, who stands at 12-29 out of the SWAC.

Wednesday has only one game, as the Ole Miss Rebels battle Arkansas-Pine Bluff.This is a winnable matchup for the Rebels to say the least, as the SWAC rep is only 18-19 on the year and 4-9 on the road.

Thursday will have an interesting matchup take center stage. The aforementioned Missouri Tigers host the Georgia Bulldogs for the start of a mighty big series. UGA, of course, won’t play in midweek action but is coming off the aforementioned series win over Tennessee. At 30-14 on the year and 8th in the RPI, their tourney standing is all but set. This, however, would be a huge series victory for Mizzou if they pulled it off. They can get off to a good start on Thursday.
