Marquee Match Up
10:30pm Santa Clara @ USC
We have a big game here for Santa Clara. The Broncos face the USC Trojans for a tough non-conference early on their slate and this is a good one. The Trojans are rebounding, well somewhat anyway, from a tough few years that has been marred with scandal but they are far from a patsy team. Traz had his first double-double of 2010-11 in the win against Cal-Bakersfield last week posting 17 pts and 10 rbs so he should be working on a high. Traz'll need all his game to get his second double-double against the tough Trojan defense tonight. He will definitely have his hands full against Duke transfer Alex Stephenson (remember that guy) since that should be his match up against defense. Stephenson is a good, mobile player and Traz will have to play tough against him. And expect to see some of Toronto’s Julian Clarke too.

7:00pm Glenville State @ Marshall
7:00pm Urbana @ Cleveland State
7:00pm New Jersey @ Elon
7:00pm Wagner @ Lehigh– Tyler Murray is looking like he’s gonna be the star of the team. He dropped 18 pts, 4 rbs and 6 asts in the Seahawks’ first game of the season. He’s projecting to be a great player this season in the Northeast Conference and this game could be an indicator of his progress even if it’s still early.
7:00pm Colgate @ St. Francis (PA)
8:00pm Ark-Pine Bluff @ Nebraska
9:00pm Siena @ Minnesota
9:00pm West New Mexico @ New Mexico State– Hernst Laroche, a career starter for the Aggies, has always been a pass first point guard but his first game of the season saw him drop 21 pts to go along with his 8 asts and 2 stls. Could this be a new player in the making? Ty Watson and Christian Kabongo also played big minutes in that game, with Watson starting, so we could have a big Canadian front in this one.
10:00pm San Diego @ Stanford
