Marquee Match Up
9:00pm Lewis Clark State @ Gonzaga
The Zags have not had an easy road in the early part of their schedule this season but that is the way of Coach Few. Three straight losses have dropped their record to 4-5 but the upside is that the losses have come against Top 25 teams with the exception of Washington State (which oddly enough was their worst loss this season). Amidst the losing streak, Rob Sacre has been pretty good averaging 12.3 points and 8.7 rebounds (13.4 pts and 8.2 over the five losses overall) in 30 minutes a game which is promising with the conference games on the horizon. Manny Arop was great against Notre Dame posting a season high 16 points and 5 rebounds while playing 32 minutes, also a season high, but he has been inconsistent all year. Olynyk was blanked in his 11 minutes of action only getting a board and an assist which may be a foreshadowing of his role with the team going forward.
And here is where everyone else is playing tonight …
8:00pm McNeese State @LSU
8:00pm Ark-Little Rock @ Rice – In case you haven’t been paying attention (and like me you likely haven’t) but Ottawa’s Eric Kibi has been a steady contributor for Arkansas-Little Rock this season as a starter. He’s been averaging 7.2 points and 4.3 rebounds in 21 minutes of action thus far. Toronto’s Tramar Sutherland has had sparse playing time but has played 15 and 13 minutes in the last two games and has averaged a modest 7 points, 2.5 rebounds and an assist and could see his playing time increase going forward.
8:00pm Hiwassee College @ Tennessee Tech
8:15pm Kennesaw State @ Belmont
9:00pm Panhandle State @ New Mexico State – New Mexico State will be facing off against a Panhandle State team that seems to be playing its second of three games against D1 competition. After the big win over Arkansas-Pine Bluff to kill their losing streak, the Aggies should come out of the gates here looking for blood. The four Canadians on the team accounted for 51 points in the 83-49 win including almost half the rebounds (21 of 43), over 75% of the assists (10 of 13) and 90% of the steals (10 of 11) and they could have a similar affect in this game.
