GAME OF THE DAY: Pitt vs. Davidson, 12:00 p.m. (MSG)

Yet another great matchup in New York City this weekend. This is going to be a nice test for both teams, as the Panthers and the Wildcats have both, at times, looked like they are tournament caliber teams this year. Pitt is 8-1 on the season, but their best performance came in a game against Gonzaga that was cancelled at the half because of dangerous floor conditions. And Davidson, at 7-1, can put up points in bunches but lost their one true test by 33 at North Carolina.

WHAT TO WATCH FOR

  • The only top 25 team in action today is No. 25 UConn, who hosts UMass-Lowell
  • Monmouth tries to land another high-major road win as they head to Piscataway to take on Rutgers.
  • Arkansas-Little Rock gets a home game against Northern Arizona as they try to move to 10-0 on the season.
  • Some sneaky-good hoops will be happening in the Mountain West-Missouri Valley Challenge as Fresno State takes on Evansville.
