Tonight we have the start of the most exciting time of the year in college basketball - The NCAA Post Season. So today we have two games for you to check out that feature Canadians. Though not exactly in the NCAA Tournament, these games will be fun to watch regardless. See where everyone else is playing tonight right here ...
9:00pm Boston College @ McNeese State in the NIT
McNeese State was three points shy of making the NCAA Tournament but the NIT is not a bad consolation prize for this team. Unfortunately, they are facing a tough team in Boston College. The only teams that the Cowboys had faced from a major conference, Washington, Miami, LSU and Texas A&M, resulted in big losses with the exception of the LSU game which they lost in OT. The good news is that BC has lost to two Ivy League opponents this year in spectacular fashion so this game is winnable. Senior Diego Kapelan had played incredible throughout the Southland Tournament averaging 17 points over McNeese State’s three game run so look out for him to put the ball in from long distance. With this being win or go home situation, look for it to tight but BC gets a big lead early on it could be a wrap for the Cowboys.
1:00am Portland @ Hawaii in the CIT
Midway through the season, Portland was in a position to be in the NCAA Tournament but was turning into a dream season quickly turned into a nightmare. They have an inside game, outside game and good defense but since the New Year the Pilots had lost eight of their last fourteen games and then they lost their only game in the West Coast Conference Tournament. This may be the last gasp for this Portland team. Nemanja Mitrovic has been one of the steady deep threats for this team and he’s played particularly well since the December averaging 14.8 points and 3.2 threes in that span. Look for him to get going early against Hawaii for Portland to this win. Also of note, Jasonn Hannibal had started the last five regular season games for the Pilots and had played well when given minutes.

7:00pm Vermont @ Cleveland State

College Insider Tournament
10:00pm Northern Arizona @ Santa Clara – Marc Trasolini and the Santa Clara Broncos had the luck of being in a conference where there were two really good teams and a couple of surprise ones winning games. They are going to look for their first post season win in a long time tonight. Traz has played incredibly well in his last four games averaging 24 points, 6.8 rebounds and 1.3 blocks so it may continue here and possibly lead to a win.
