Tonight's Marquee Match Up features two Bonnies playing host to some Minutemen.  Find out who else is playing tonight right here ...


Marquee Match Up

7:00pm Massachusetts @ St. Bonaventure

After blasting through the gates this season, it seems as though Andrew Nicholson may have hit the proverbial wall.  In his last four games, he’s averaging 11.8 points, 3.5 rebounds in 23.8 minutes.  Those are all far cries from his season averages of 20.1, 7.4 and 34.2.  Even though he’s faced some strong teams, those numbers may have to do with fatigue and the 4 fouls he’s averaging in that time as well.  UMass will be an even match up for St. Bonaventure and this could be a game where Nicholson gets his early season form back. The Bonnies are going to need this win since they will be facing strong teams down their last set of games in conference play.  Also of note, freshman Matthew Wright was named conference co-rookie of the week so look out for him tonight.  He dropped an efficient 18 points in 24 minutes on 6-of-7 shooting including 3-of-4 from three.

7:30pm Texas @ Oklahoma State

I can’t believe I missed this game on the schedule so I’m adding it to the Marquee Match Up.  The Longhorns are going into Oklahoma State’s home floor as marked targets.  Texas has been firing on all cylinders of late taking down two ranked opponents in their conference and should be able to do the same against the Cowboys.  Tristan Thompson is coming off another solid week particularly against Kansas when he showed that he can be a defensive stopper posting 5 blocks and keeping the Morris brothers in check.  Cory Joseph showed why he’s the point guard of the future running the offense well, keeping a tight leash on Josh Selby and hitting some very big shots in the Kansas game.  Check out these two guys tonight and let’s see if they maintain that momentum.



And here is where everyone else is playing tonight …

5:00pm Lafayette @ ArmyJared Mintz has been among the lone highlights of this year’s Lafayette team.  He had his first double-double (14 pts, 10 rebs) of the season in the last game, a loss to Lehigh.  Look for Mintz to snap the Leopards’ losing streak tonight against Army.

7:00pm Drexel @ James Madison

7:00pm Northeastern @ UNC-Wilmington

7:00pm Citadel @ Davidson

7:00pm Bucknell @ Lehigh

7:00pm George Washington @ Xavier

8:00pm Southeastern Louisiana @ Central Arkansas

8:00pm McNeese State @ Nicholls State – After a tough December, Diego Kapelan has turned a new leaf in January.  Through his last five games, he’s averaging 17 points including 2.8 threes per game, 4 rebounds, an assist and a steal.  In a must win game for the Cowboys, look for Kepalan to continue on his hot shooting and break the two game losing streak.

8:00pm Murray State @ SIU-Edwardsville

8:30pm Northwestern @ Minnesota

9:00pm Texas Tech @ Iowa StateJamie Vanderbeken and Melvin Ejim were playing great over the last few games for Iowa State but they were both stymied in their last game against ranked Missouri, which was a loss on the road.  Both players will need to come out gunning if the Cyclones expect to have a shot at winning against Texas Tech.

9:00pm Binghamton @ Boston University

9:05pm Creighton @ Northern Iowa
