Marquee Match Up
7:00pm Siena @ St. Bonaventure
After a quadruple overtime win on Dec. 18, St. Bonaventure ran out of gas in the overtime loss at Virginia Tech Dec. 23. With the conference schedule inching closer, every game outside the Atlantic 10 becomes an important one. Andrew Nicholson has been nothing short of a First Team All Conference player to this point had a great game in defeat against the Hokies putting up 21 points and 8 rebounds having his consecutive double-double streak snapped at five. He’ll be looking to start a new one against Siena but Saints are coming off a big win over Georgia Tech. The Bonnies will need to get everything out of everyone, especially if Nicholson gets the double team thrown at him that opponents have been doing all year.
And here is where everyone else is playing tonight …
7:00pm Minnesota @ Wisconsin – Coming off a good game in Minnesota’s win over South Dakota State Dec. 23, Devoe Joseph is looking to make it three straight games scoring double figures. Big Mo Walker has also been having a great stretch as well providing a great inside presence off the bench for the Gophers of late. Mo’s averaging 3.8 points and 3.4 rebounds in about 12 minutes per in the last five games. Playing against Wisconsin at in Wisconsin, Joseph and Walker will need to come up big for a chance for their team to get a win.
7:00pm Binghamton @ Marshall
7:00pm Niagara @ Drexel
7:00pm Bucknell @ Loyola (MD)
7:00pm Western Carolina @ North Carolina-Asheville
7:00pm Long Island @ NJIT – After starting off the season with six straight double figure scoring games, Kyle Johnson has only had two in the last five games. His last game he had 13 points, 9 rebounds and 3 steals in the win the 91-85 over Army on Dec. 19 so will this game a new streak in the making?
8:05pm IPFW @ Oral Roberts
9:00pm Providence @ Syracuse – Kris Joseph had a career high 25 points in Syracuse’s 93-65 win over Drexel Dec. 22. He also added 7 rebounds, 2 blocks, an assist and a steal in what can be viewed as his best game of the season. Joseph will need to get his game ready for a Providence team that is 11-2 and ranks 16th in the NCAA in points scored and 5th in rebounds per game. This is not a Friars team of old and they will look to give a tough fight to the Orange. Joseph has seemed content to let his teammates make the big plays against some of the better teams so the question is will he come up big here?
10:00pm Yale @ Stanford
10:00pm UC Riverside @ UC Irvine
10:30pm Hartford @ Cal
