Today we have a pretty busy hump day for you that include games that feature Kris Joseph, Justin Edwards, Myck Kabongo and a few of the promising ladies so check out the schedule of contests right here ...
Remember that you can find the full list of players playing in Division 1 right here.
7:00pm Syracuse @ Villanova - Since Kris Joseph was held to zero points against Seton Hall on December 28, he's averaged 17.3 points in Syracuse's last three games. He's also shooting 17-of-31 including making 6-of-10 threes with a perfect 4-for-4 in the Orange's 73-66 win over Marquette this past Saturday. Did I also mention that he's averaging 4.3 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 steals in that three game span too.
7:00pm St. John's @ Marquette
7:00pm Rhode Island @ George Washington
7:00pm Boston University @ Maine - Justin Edwards has finally cooled off but I wouldn't say cooled down. He's averaging 11.7 points, 6.1 rebounds and 4 assists since his last 20 point outburst seven games ago and is still looking like the front runner for the conference rookie of the year. Boston University just broke a seven game losing skid last week so let's see if Maine can extend their winning streak to three games.
7:00pm Colgate @ Bucknell
7:00pm Northeastern @ Hofstra
7:00pm Dayton @ St. Bonaventure - Before Duquesne beat St. Bonaventure Saturday, the Bonnies were on a three game winning streak. Andrew Nicholson, a pre season player of the year candidate, has been having a rough go to this point as teams have been throwing every possible junk defense at him and his numbers have been affected. He's been saddled with foul trouble in quite a few games and thus has been a limited with production. The only upside of this is that when Nicholson is in the game he's scoring at a very high percentage, albeit in very limited minutes. The other good news is that Matthew Wright and Chris Johnson has been able to contribute. Wright has been averaging 3 assists as a full time starter and Chris Johnson has been scoring in spurts. Look for these three to get it going early, and for Nicholson if he can stay out of foul trouble it could be a big game.
7:00pm American @ Lehigh
8:00pm Marshall @ UAB
8:00pm Arkansas @ Ole Miss
8:00pm Rice @ Southern Methodist
8:00pm Kentucky @ Auburn
8:00pm Missouri @ Iowa State - Melvin Ejim has been struggling a little with find his role this season and he seems to have found a spot off the bench now. He's averaging 12 points, 9.3 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.3 steals in the last three games so maybe he'll evolve into a Morris Peterson type for the rest of the year.
9:00pm Temple @ Saint Louis
9:00pm Georgia Tech @ North Carolina State
9:00pm Texas A&M @ Texas - After scoring in single digits for three games, Myck Kabongo scored 15 against Oklahoma St in the Texas win Saturday, largely on his 8-of-12 free shooting for the game. Kabongo has struggled with his shooting thus far this season and is 12-of-34 in his last five games. The good news is that he's still passing the rock and playing solid D. Let's see what he can do tonight against Texas A&M.
9:00pm Kansas @ Texas Tech
And here is where the ladies are playing today ...
3:00pm Seattle U @ Fresno State - Elle Kerfoot has been steady all season and with Seattle riding a four game winning streak she is up for a big game. She has a 17 point game at the start of the streak so her next big one could be tonight.
7:00pm Lehigh @ American
7:00pm St. John's @ Syracuse
7:00pm Kent State @ Miami (OH)
7:00pm Texas @ Texas A&M
7:00pm Massachusetts @ Rhode Island
7:00pm Binghamton @ Vermont - Vermont had been riding an eight game losing streak before a 15 point comeback earned them a win against Hartford Saturday to snap it. The three Canadians, Lauren Buschmann, Kristine Lalonde and Lauren Wheeler have been big all season and will be looking to extend that winning streak for the Catamounts to two games this evening.
7:00pm Akron @ Buffalo
7:00pm Bucknell @ Colgate
7:00pm Xavier @ Duquesne - Duquesne's Wumi Agunbiade was limited to single digit scoring for only the second time this season in the Dukes loss to St. Bonaventure. She was held to 8 points so expect her to come out looking to score here.
9:00pm New Mexico @ Boise State
