Duke at Virginia Tech (7 p.m./ESPN)
If you like being angered by ESPN announcers, then by all means tune into every second of this one.
Seton Hall at Providence (7 p.m./ESPN 2)
This game has MAJOR Big East Tournament double-digit seed implications. Either team is capable of beating the other by 30, but since the '68 UCLA Bruins couldn't win on the road in this conference (too old), the smart money is on the red hot Friars.
Siena at Loyola (MD) (7 p.m./MASN)
Siena has established itself as the top dog in the MAAC once again, but the preseason favorites from Loyola hammered Marist last week and are finally starting to look like the team many thought they would be before the season.
Dayton at Xavier (8 p.m./CSTV)
The Flyers have lost 22 straight on the road against their arch-rivals, and if they break that streak this evening they will have done so without Christ Wright and Charles Little, who are both likely out for at least the next four weeks with broken bones. The game(s) is/are always enormous for both schools, but this is just the second time they will have met while both being ranked. Brian Roberts will have to continue his habit of coming up huge in big games for UD to have any hope of springing the upset.
Washington State at Arizona (8:30 p.m./FSN Northwest)
Contrasting styles and floppy-haired shooters both rule.
Michigan State at Northwestern (9 p.m./ESPN 2)
Kevin Coble is the man...on the only winless team in the Big Ten.
UCLA at Oregon (10:30 p.m./FSN)
If you're able, this one should be totally worth staying up for. Maarty Leunen and Kevin Love both have offensive games that the other is going to have a difficult time defending, and Darren Collison and Tajuan Porter are always capable of putting on a show.
