The eighth ranked Gonzaga Bulldogs and their Canadian quartet of Sacre, Arop, Kong and Olynyk highlight the big night of NCAA hoops. Check out which other Canadians are playing tonight and where here ...
As always, check out the highlighted games below for what we think should be the big ones to pay attention to tonight. And always check out the Can Ball Report's Twitter feed for any game links we may have for you throughout the evening.
7:00pm Central Michigan @ Miami (OH)
7:00pm Western Carolina @ Chattanooga – Harouna Mutombo was pulled from the starting lineup in the last game and Toronto’s Keaton Cole was put in. It will be interesting to see how Mutombo rebounds from the game after only playing 4 minutes.
7:00pm Citadel @ Georgia Southern
7:00pm Ball State @ Buffalo
7:00pm Elon @ UNC Greensboro
7:00pm Quinnipiac @ Wagner
7:00pm Charleston @ Davidson – it’s been an up and down season for Will Archambault, who may have been expected to carry a good portion of the scoring load this year. He’s played well in the last four games averaging 12 points, 8 rebounds and 2 assists.
7:05pm Loyola (MD) @ Detroit
7:30pm Monmouth @ Central Connecticut State
7:30pm Long Island @ Robert Morris – Kyle Johnson has been consistently inconsistent this season having great games some nights and then seemingly vanishing on others. With this game being important in the conference standings situation look for Johnson to make a big showing here.
7:30pm Fairleigh Dickinson @ Bryant University
8:00pm North Texas @ Western Kentucky
8:00pm South Dakota State @ Centenary
8:30pm Eastern Kentucky @ Austin Peay – Toronto’s Papa Oppong has averaged 14 points, 3 rebounds and 2 assists in the last five games and Austin Peay trailing the Colonels in the Ohio Valley by only one game, this should be a game watch.
8:30pm Utah Valley @ Chicago State
8:30pm USC @ Oregon State
10:00pm Hawaii @ San Jose State
10:00pm Pacific @ UC Irvine
10:05pm Long Beach State @ Cal Northridge
11:00pm (8) Gonzaga @ Santa Clara – this game will feature a whole gaggle of Canadians but there will be a battle in the middle I think between the BC big men Rob Sacre for the Zags and Marc Trasolini for the Broncos. Expect Santa Clara to make this a tough win for Gonzaga since they are playing at home.
