1:00pm Fairleigh Dickinson @ Central Connecticut State
1:30pm Oklahoma @ Nebraska
2:00pm Saint Louis @ Richmond
2:00pm Albany @ Vermont – the Catamounts are still on a slid, now at three games. MoJo has been battling a wrist injury the last two weeks but has still had good games despite the losses. This is not the way Vermont wants to close out their great season so look for them to come out firing on all pistons.
2:00pm (4) Syracuse @ DePaul – the ‘Cuse have been rolling through the season like a bulldozer and over the last few games, Montreal’s Kris Joseph has been great off the bench averaging 12.5 pts and 4 boards. Andy Rautins has been steady at the guard spot averaging 14 points, 4.3 rebounds, 4.8 assists and 3 steals over the last five.
3:00pm Western Carolina @ Samford – Mutombo is due for a big game and this one could be it.

9:00pm Colorado @ Iowa State
9:00pm New Mexico State @ Louisiana Tech – Ashaolu has been a little inconsistent this season but he has shown that he can be a force but may still be hurting. This could be a good game to see if he’s still recovering from his mid season injury.
9:30pm UMKC @ Southern Utah
9:30pm (8) Gonzaga @ San Francisco – this should be a good one to watch as Rob Sacre and Kelly Olynyk should be defending a great player in Dior Lowhorn at some point in the night, not to mention the other two forwards for the Dons who are rugged down low.
10:00pm Portland @ Santa Clara – Traz had a big showing against the Zags on Thursday demonstrating his long range shooting for Gonzaga. Let’s see how he plays against a team that may be just as good as the Zags.
