As Rivalry Week continues, we have some great games on tap tonight that feature some of our Canadian boys. Tonight's marquee match up has to go to the tag team of Andy Rautins and Kris Joseph and the 2nd ranked Syracuse Orange taking on the U Conn Huskies in a huge Big East tussle at the Carrier Dome. Premier bigs Andrew Nicholson of St Bonaventure and Jared Mintz of Lafayette are also in action tonight. Find out who else is playing right here ...
Remember that we give you the games you should really take a look at that feature some of our Canadian talent. And always check in with the Can Ball Report's Twitter feed for any game links we can find for you.
7:00pm Georgia State @ Northeastern
7:00pm Fordham @ St Bonaventure – Mississauga, ON’s Andrew Nicholson is a straight up big time ball player and he’s proved that last season wasn’t a fluke. He’s been playing well of late and dropped 19 points, nine rebounds and two blocks in the loss to Saint Joseph’s on the road so look for a big game from him at home.
7:00pm Connecticut @ (2) Syracuse – despite UConn having had a tough season falling from the Top 25, this will not be a cakewalk for the Orange. Even with the Huskies having lost three of the last four games, six of the last eleven, they are dangerous even in unfriendly confines. Both Rautins and Joseph have been playing great the last few games with both having led the charge in the win over Cincinnati on Sunday so this should be good.
7:00pm Richmond @ Rhode Island
7:00pm Colgate @ Lafayette – the Patriot League is no slouch, especially when the league’s teams are playing each other for seeding. Ask Lafayette who lost their last game to Holy Cross who happen to be bringing up the bottom of the Patriot. Against the Crusaders, Jared Mintz didn’t have a great game so expect him to go off against Colgate tonight.
7:00pm Eastern Michigan @ Buffalo
7:00pm Maine @ Stony Brook
7:30pm Iowa State @ Missouri
8:00pm Texas State @ Texas A&M-CC
8:00pm Texas-San Antonio @ Central Arkansas
8:00pm Texas-Arlington @ McNeese State – Vancouver’s Diego Kapelan may not be playing on the best team in the Southland Conference but he is sure fun to watch. This guy does nothing but put the ball in the basket and he does it from deep. He’s had back-to-back 17 point games so don’t be surprised if he launches a similar performance tonight.
10:00pm Cal Northridge @ Cal Bakersfield
10:05pm Cal Fullerton @ UC Irvine
