Today we have two mid major stars in action - Justin Edwards and Maine and Andrew Nicholson and St. Bonaventure - as well as a few ladies in some power conferences and you can get the low down on them all right here ...
Here is where the men are playing today ...
7:00pm Delaware @ Northeastern
7:00pm Maine @ New Hampshire - Despite that Maine is riding a five game losing streak but Justin Edwards has been playing pretty well. In that span, he's averaging 14.2 points, 6.4 rebounds, 4.4 assists and 1.2 steals and the Black Bears are going to need all of that to help snap this losing skid. On another note, Mike Allison has been great up until two games ago. He had a slow game and then against Stony Brook this past Saturday he hurt his right leg limiting him to only 5 minutes of action. Hopefully it's not that serious and he can go tonight but I wouldn't hold my breath.
7:00pm Fordham @ Richmond
7:00pm UAB @ Marshall
7:00pm Binghamton @ Albany
7:00pm American University @ Bucknell
7:00pm Loyola (IL) @ Detroit
7:00pm Georgia State @ Drexel
7:00pm George Washington @ La Salle
7:00pm St. Bonaventure @ Rhode Island - In the last few games, last three games really, Andrew Nicholson has been looking like the dominant player that he is. In that span, where the Bonnies sandwiched a loss to Xavier between wins over Dayton and Fordham, he averaged 23 points, 9.7 rebounds, 3.3 blocks and 1.7 steals which look like Player of the Year numbers. (Can I point out that he had 19 points, 9 boards, 3 assists, 3 blocks and 2 steals in 19 minutes against Fordham.) He's looking like he's finally getting in his grove for the stretch run which is perfect so I would think that it Rhode Island will be in trouble, unless he has foul problems.
7:00pm Saint Louis @ Xavier
8:00pm Rice @ Memphis
8:05pm Creighton @ Drake
8:30pm Minnesota @ Michigan State
9:00pm Auburn @ Arkansas
9:00pm Kansas State @ Texas Tech
And here is where the ladies are playing today ...
7:00pm Connecticut @ Syracuse - Kayla Alexander will be leading her Syracuse team against a formidable Connecticut team. I don't think that the Orange will win this game but they will make it a tough out. In her last games out against Seton Hall, Alexander had 23 points, 8 rebounds and 2 blocks and she'll need to put up that kind of performance for the ‘Cuse to have a shot at an upset.
7:00pm Colgate @ Lafayette
7:00pm Northern Illinois @ Akron
7:00pm Albany @ Binghamton
7:00pm Eastern Michigan @ Buffalo - Brittany Hedderson has been the only silver lining in the Buffalo Bulls' season so far as she continues to score in bunches. Her last game out, a win over Northern Illinois this past Sunday, she had 29 points, 8 rebounds and 3 steals. She's currently the second leading scorer in the Mid American Conference at 20.7.
7:00pm Massachusetts @ Duquesne - Duquesne's Wumi Agunbiade has been playing well since being held to single digits three games ago. In her last three she's averaging 15.3 points along with 4.3 rebounds and 2.3 assists as the Dukes split a 2-1 record. For UMass, Carolann Cloutier, she currently leads the Atlantic 10 in assists per game at 4.9, will be looking to lead her team to win.
7:00pm Kent State @ Western Michigan
8:00pm Missouri @ Texas
8:00pm Texas Tech @ Kansas
9:00pm Arkansas State @ Denver
10:00pm Boise State @ UNLV
10:00pm BYU @ Seattle
