Look Ahead For Week 16:

As the regular season winds to a close we get the final Look Ahead for the TPP Top 25.

Georgetown @ West Virginia (Mon)- The Hoyas need a win in the worst kind of way. Losing to a Harangody-less Notre Dame team at home is no way for Georgetown to be heading into the Big East tournament. Freeman and Monroe are going to need to be big in Morgantown for the Hoyas to be able to right the ship.

Illinois @ Ohio State (Tue)- What a player of the year race it is going to be between Evan Turner and John Wall. Turner will try and make his case for the award by attempting to clinch at least a share of the Big 10 regular season title in the Buckeyes final game of the regular season. The Illini will be just as motivated though, they need a win for their NCAA At-large hopes.

Kansas State @ Kansas (Wed)- This is the biggest game of the week by far! Two top 5 teams battling it out for bragging rights and NCAA seeding position. The winner of the Big 12 will get a #1 seed and these two are the likely candidates to win the Big 12 tournament. Jacob Pullen and Denis Clemente lead a K-State team into Lawrence to try and knock off the nation's longest home court winning streak and enact some revenge for the Jayhawks win earlier in the season in Manhattan.

West Virginia @ Villanova (Sat)- Both of these teams have struggled at times down the stretch. They will be battling for Big East and NCAA tournament seeding in this final regular season matchup. Scottie Reynolds will be looking to have a big Senior Night and go out with a win. Watch out for the Mountaineers to steal one though, Ebanks and company will be looking for revenge after the Wildcats stole one in Morgantown in February.

Syracuse @ Louisville (Sat)- Speaking of revenge, Syracuse will be looking for revenge against Louisville, a team that handed the Orange their 2nd loss of the season not too long ago. Andy Rautins has really been an impact player for the Orange this year, look for him to have a big game. Syracuse, in all likelihood, can claim the #1 overall seed in the NCAA tournament if they win out. Louisville looks safe as an at-large team for now, but if the Cardinals struggle down the stretch they can find themselves on the preverbial bubble.
