Marquee Match Up
3:30pm Notre Dame @ Syracuse
Kris Joseph is surging at the right time – at the start of the conference schedule. With the Big East set as the best conference this year, he looks poised to begin a run as a possible conference player of the year contender. In the last four game, Joseph is has hit for 20 or more points in three contests and is averaging 19.5 in that span even with a 5 point outing in one game. Taking on a ranked conference team today, expect the output by Joseph to be high as he has been known to rise to the level of the opponent.
And here is where everyone else is playing …

1:00pm Milwaukee @ Detroit
2:00pm Illinois-Chicago @ Cleveland State
8:05pm Drake @ Creighton – Kurt Alexander has started the last two games for Drake and has played very well. He’s averaging 10 points and 5.5 assists in 28.5 minutes and is looking more like the player that had earned Junior College All American honors last season. Look for him to continue his hot production in this game as the Bulldogs lead into conference play.
