Yup, not even close.
In college basketball, a single regular season game will never truly be all that critical. I'll be irritated if we lose this game (because we shouldn't), but ultimately we're still going to the tournament and we're still going to have a solid seed, even with a loss.
If this were an Elite 8 game, it'd be more important than DGB. But as a regular season game no, it does not matter nearly as much as landing the #1 college football recruit in the country.
