With a light night in men's hoops today, we shift our total focus to the women's side and our big games feature a ranked Green Bay team with Megan Lukan and a Syracuse team in the WNIT featuring Kayla Alexander all right here for you ...
Here is where the men are playing today ...
9:00pm Minnesota @ Miami (FL)
11:30pm Illinois State @ Stanford
And here's where the women are playing today ...
9:45pm Green Bay vs. Kentucky - Megan Lukan has been a starter for Green Bay all season and though not putting up eye popping numbers, she's been playing the glue role doing what needs to get done for the Phoenix to get the win. In the team's first round game against Iowa State Saturday, Lukan only had 2 points but also had 5 rebounds, 3 assists and 4 steals in 31 big minutes. Against a tough Kentucky team, she'll need to do at least that to help get the W tonight.
7:00pm Syracuse @ Drexel - In Syracuse's opening round game against Hartford last week, Kayla Alexander had a not-so-Kayla game going for 3 points and 4 rebounds not making any of her three field goal attempts in 20 minutes. A far cry from her season averages of 14.2 points, 7.2 rebounds and 2.5 blocks. I would think that she's coming back hard in this game tonight. That last time she was held under ten points scoring (she had 4 points in the loss to West Virginia in the Big East Tournament before the Hartford game) she went for 20 and 12 the following game against Niagara in December. This could be that breakout game.
7:00pm Cincinnati @ Toledo
