More big and important games are being played today featuring the likes of Tyler Murray and Wagner, the duo of Harouna Mutombo and Keaton Cole of Western Carolina, Natalie Achonwa and Notre Dame and more all right here ...
*** With some late games going on last night, I may have missed a few late additions to the schedule. ***
Here is where the men are playing today ...
12:00pm Kentucky @ Florida
12:00pm Robert Morris @ Wagner - Wagner is staring at an invite to the NCAA Tournament just on the horizon but they will need to beat Robert Morris first. In the Seahawks' 87-77 win over Central Connecticut State Thursday in the NEC quarter finals, Tyler Murray had 15 points, 3 assists, 2 boards and a block in 34 minutes. Robert Morris was sitting right behind Wagner in the conference standings and they lost their only meeting to the Seahawks this season so they will have revenge on their minds. With the NEC likely only getting one NCAA bid this season, this will be an important game for Wagner.
1:00pm Illinois @ Wisconsin
2:00pm Fairfield vs. Iona
2:00pm Old Dominion vs. Drexel
2:05pm Illinois State vs. Creighton
3:30pm Arizona @ Arizona State - Arizona State's Jordan Bachynski had come on in the second half of the season getting more minutes and gaining much needed confidence. In the Sun Devils' 56-52 win over USC last Saturday, he had a near double-double going for 19 points and 9 rebounds along with 2 blocks in 29 minutes. Expect that Bachynski gets to test his new found confidence against a tough Arizona team today.
5:30pm California @ Stanford
6:00pm NC State @ Virginia Tech
6:00pm Quinnipiac @ LIU Brooklyn
6:00pm Western Carolina vs. UNC Greensboro - Western Carolina put a whopping on Wofford yesterday to get to this game against UNC Greensboro. Harouna Mutombo and Keaton Cole both played well and were keys to the win. The Catamounts only played UNC Greensboro once this season and that was an 89-86 overtime dogfight that they lost. You can bet that the memory is fresh in their minds and Cole and Mutombo will be looking to get one step closer to an NCAA Tournament.
8:30pm Elon vs. Davidson
9:30pm Western Kentucky vs. Arkansas-Little Rock
And here is where the women's are playing today ...
1:00pm Texas A&M @ Texas
1:00pm Binghamton vs. Albany
1:00pm IUPUI vs. North Dakota State
1:15pm FIU vs. Denver
2:00pm DePaul vs. Notre Dame - This will be a tight game I'm sure. Both teams are ranked in the Top 25 and both have players that can light it up. If it has to come to the bench, than I would expect Natalie Achonwa to be a factor in this game.
