What to Look For Tonight

Long Beach State is giving Kentucky all sorts of fits right now. Currently it's all tied at 49 with about 14 minutes left.

Tonight you have some tasty games going on. At 5:30 in Hawaii, it's Saint Mary's and my boy, Omar Samhan vs. USC. At 7:00 PM tonight, if we can find it anywhere on the internet, you have a dandy as 7-4 Old Dominion, fresh off their road win over Georgetown hosts 9-1 Charlotte, who has their own Big East road kill in Louisville. It's a great matchup of front courts as the Monarchs Gerald Lee, Frank Hassell and Ben Finney face the 49ers' Chris Braswell and Shamari Spears. It may come down to the teams' backcourts and I'll give the edge to Charlotte on that.

ESPN2 has #6 West Virginia hosting #21 Mississippi. And in the trap game extraordinare, undefeated #12 New Mexico goes to Oral Roberts. The Golden Eagles have picked off Stanford and Missouri this year, so will the Lobos be the trifecta?

And if you want a couple of quick CAA predictions - James Madison beats Fordham by 20 and Villanova is going to take that loss to Temple out on Delaware in a very very bad way just like they did to Fordham. The point spread of 29 will likely not be enough.
