Tonight is another night in championship week with two Canadian kids looking to help their teams ton conference titles. Jason Calliste will be looking to help Detroit and Natalie Achonwa is looking to help spark Notre Dame plus more all right here ...
Here is where the men are playing today ...
4:00pm Maryland-Eastern Shore vs. North Carolina Central
7:00pm George Washington @ Dayton
7:00pm Richmond @ La Salle
9:00pm Florida A&M vs. Coppin State
9:00pm Western Illinois vs. South Dakota State
9:00pm Detroit @ Valparaiso - Detroit's Jason Calliste is a forgotten man of sorts behind Ray McCallum, Chase Simon and Eli Holman all season but that only makes him an X-factor in this game. In the Titans' last two games in the Horizon League tournament, he's averaging 11 points, 4.5 rebounds and an assist. Look out for him tonight to have a big game.
And here is where the women are playing today ...
4:00pm Arkansas-Pine Bluff vs. Alcorn State
7:00pm Dartmouth @ Harvard
7:00pm Monmouth @ Quinnipiac
7:00pm Connecticut vs. Notre Dame - If you watch any game tonight this might be the one to watch. Two of the best women's basketball teams in the NCAA going at it for the Big East title and Natalie Achonwa will be right in the middle of it. She's averaging 4.5 points, 2.5 rebounds, an assist and 1.5 steals in two games off the bench in the Big East Tournament so far. The Irish pummeled UConn over a week ago to close out the regular season and you can bet payback is on their minds. This should be one hell of an intense game.
10:00pm UC Santa Barbara @ UC Irvine
