Tonight's Marquee Match Up features a guy that may be resurrecting himself in his senior season and a guy that is starting his career off pretty well. Check out who else is playing tonight right here on the NC-Double-Eh Schedule ...
Marquee Match Up
8:00pm Drake @ Iowa State
Here is your chance to see not only a rejuvenated Jamie Vanderbeken, the three bombing center from Belleville, ON, but you also get to see Brampton, ON’s Melvin Ejim. Ejim was our honorable mention for Rookie of the Week and has been playing well through two games. Vanderbeken has been playing well also so don’t forget about him. Drake has Canadian Kurt Alexander who is capable of filling it up and could have a great game.
5:30pm Marist @ George Washington
7:00pm Holy Cross @ Harvard
7:00pm Delaware @ Cornell
7:00pm Milwaukee @ Niagara
7:00pm St. Francis (PA) @ Lafayette– Jared Mintz has been playing well in the last two games and seems to be feeling no ill effects of a pre season injury, even if his numbers may not indicate. He may go off in this game, he may not but I’m leaning to he will as he’s still playing his way into shape.
7:00pm Binghamton @ Bucknell – This will be a good one to watch. For Bucknell, Nova Scotia native Bryson Johnson had a great game against Marquette this weekend putting up 18 pts on 6-of-8 from three. Not bad against a good Big East defense. For Binghamton, Chretien Lukusa has been the lone rock through the last year of scandal and really is the only bridge between the last great successes this team had (that was later stripped). He’s not going to score a whole lot but he is the glue guy. It’s just nice to see him play.
7:30pm SIU-Edwardsville @ Eastern Kentucky
8:00pm St. Gregory’s @ Arkansas-Little Rock– Ottawa’s Eric Kibi has been playing well as an early starter for Arkansas-Little Rock posting solid numbers. Expect Kibi to post much of the same stats here against an NAIA team.
8:00pm Houston @ Louisiana Tech– Will it b three double-doubles to start the season for Olu? We think so.
8:00pm Columbia @ St. John’s
9:00pm Green Bay @ Marquette
9:30pm Belmont vs. Arkansas State
10:00pm Southern Utah @ Cal State Bakersfield– Coming off an injury year may take some time to return to true game form. Alex Johnsonapparently doesn’t need that time. He’s currently is averaging 17 pts, 3,5 rbs and 2.5 asts and this Southern Utah team will be a good test for Johnson and the Road Runners early this season.
