Games of the Week


Wisconsin at Texas, noon.

The Badgers are 9-2, with losses to Duke and Marquette and no high-quality wins.

Tennessee at Gonzaga in Seattle, 4 p.m.

The 9-3 Zags lost to their one ranked opponent, Washington State. Tennessee has 12 players with at least 10 minutes a game. However, Vols senior guard Chris Lofton, a preseason first-team all-American, is making just 34.6 percent of his three-pointers.

Temple at Florida in Miami, 6:30 p.m.

Since making 1 of 10 three-pointers in a Nov. 26 loss at Akron, top Owls scorer Dionte Christmas has made 20 of 41.

La Salle at Villanova, 7 p.m.

In 'Nova's last three games, forward Shane Clark has averaged 16 points in 28 minutes.

Pittsburgh at Dayton, 8 p.m.

The first half of a quality ESPN2 doubleheader.

Arizona at Memphis, 10 p.m.

The second half.


St. Joseph's vs. Drexel at the Palestra, 6 p.m.

In breaking a four-game losing streak, the Dragons held Bucknell to 15 first-half points and Rider to 29 second-half points.


North Carolina-Wilmington at Drexel, 7 p.m.

The Dragons open Colonial Athletic Association play against the 8-4 Seahawks.

Penn at Miami, 8 p.m.

The Quakers are the only local team to see a ranked opponent this week.


West Virginia at Notre Dame, 7 p.m.

Bob Huggins, let go at Cincinnati just as the Bearcats joined the Big East, coaches his first Big East game after his Mountaineers smashed their way through their nonconference schedule.

Villanova at DePaul, 9 p.m.

The Wildcats open in the Big East against the team with the worst nonconference record at 3-7.

UCLA at Stanford, 10:30 p.m. A two-point loss to Texas is all that's keeping UCLA out of the discussion for No. 1.
