Highlighted Games For Saturday, Nov 29th

VCU AT OLD DOMINION.  This is a rivalry game that has been a little lopsided recently, but Old Dominion is much improved this year.  Both teams come in 4-1 and it’s a chance for ODU to beat a rival, put a quality win on their resume, and continue to build momentum if they can pull the upset.

-NJIT AT DUQUESNE.  Duquesne is 2-0, but hasn’t really been tested yet.  NJIT has had a rough season and could really use any sort of a win to turn things around.

-UNC WILMINGTON AT DAVIDSON.  I don’t think either team is particularly strong, but as of now both have just one loss.

-UMASS AT HARVARD.  It’s a regional rivalry game between two teams that may end up inside the bubble.  UMass has looked good against some decent competition, but this would probably be their biggest win to date if they pull it off.

-TULSA AT WICHITA STATE.  I don’t expect Wichita to have too many problems remaining unbeaten.

-FAIRFIELD AT NORTHEASTERN.  Northeastern has a small margin for error and is coming off a rough loss to UMass, but should be able to rebound and improve to 5-1.

-GEORGE WASHINGTON AT SETON HALL.  I’ve been impressed with this GW team.  They lost at Virginia last week, but they still played pretty well.  Seton Hall is also unbeaten, so this is a big game for them too as both are looking to continue to build momentum.

-WOFFORD AT WILLIAM & MARY.  This is the best team in the SoCon visiting our preseason favorite to win the Colonial, and both only have one loss.  It’ll be hard for either team to end up inside the bubble, but it is possible.  To do it, they’ll have to win games like this, though.  Bill & Mary is unbeaten at home, and they aren’t likely to lose many, so even though they’re not a brand name team, the committee will give Wofford some credit if they’re able to pull this off.

-MIDDLE TENNESSEE VS CREIGHTON (Emerald Coast Classic).  Creighton had played well this year, but they haven’t won away from home yet and are coming off a loss to Ole Miss in this tournament.

-DRAKE AT PORTLAND.  Mentioned only because Portland is currently 4-0.

-GRAND CANYON AT CENTRAL MICHIGAN.  Grand Canyon is a transitional team, but they are perhaps the best team in the WAC.  Central Michigan is looking to stay unbeaten.

-WRIGHT STATE AT USC UPSTATE (Spartanburg Marriot Upstate Classic).  Wright State has lost two close ones in this tournament, and is now facing an Upstate team that is looking to improve to 6-1.

-BELMONT AT OHIO.  Belmont has won five straight since losing their season opener, and Ohio has looked good outside of their lost at FGCU.  Both teams have just one loss.

-NEW MEXICO STATE AT WYOMING.  A win for the Cowboys improves them to 6-0.

-CINCINNATI AT OLE MISS (Emerald Cost Classic).  Cincinnati is 5-0, but is untested, and Ole Miss has built up a 4-1 record against relatively weak competition minus their last win against Creighton (who may not be that good, but who was undefeated).  It’s one of the stronger tests either team has had up until now.

-MURRAY STATE AT VALPARAISO.  Murray State has been very disappointing this year, and has probably already played their way out of an at-large bid.  Valpo, on the other hand, is 5-1.

-EASTERN KENTUCKY AT BYU.  This is technically a buy game, but it may be worth watching as EKU comes in at 4-0.

-CAL POLY AT SAINT MARY’S  Saint Mary’s hasn’t been strongly tested, and they also haven’t left home yet, but a win gets them to 5-0.


-UIC AT DAYTON.  Buy game



-ALBANY AT UNLV.  Buy game.


-MCNEESE STATE AT LSU.  Buy game.  LSU can improve to 4-2.
