College Hoops: Games to Watch

PSR Logo
Pitt begins their first year of ACC play, Penn State tries to improve on their 6-30 Big Ten record of the past two seasons, Robert Morris looks to make another run for the NEC title and Duquesne hopes to improve in the A-10.

Saturday, Jan. 4: Another SEC Visit
Robert Morris at Alabama
Robert Morris played two SEC games last season and split them, losing a close game at Arkansas and beating Kentucky in one of the most memorable games of the season. This year, they visit the Crimson Tide before settling into their NEC schedule.

Wednesday, Jan. 8: Taking Care of Business
Fordham at Duquesne
Duquesne was a winning program under Ron Everhart, but the Dukes began to rebuild last season. Coach Jim Ferry has turned over the roster and starting their A-10 schedule with a win over the Rams would be a huge boost.

Saturday, Jan 11: Take Us Seriously
Indiana at Penn State
If Penn State coach Pat Chambers wants his team to be taken seriously, this would be a good place to start. Indiana does not have the firepower they did a year ago, but they are a still a brand name in college hoops.

Sunday, Jan. 12: Women's Hoops on the Deuce
Purdue at Penn State
Two of the top women's teams in the Big 10 face off at the Bryce Jordan Center when Purdue visits Penn State for a nationally televised ESPN 2 showdown at 2 PM.

Tuesday, Jan 14: Road Trick
Penn State at Michigan
The Lions won only two conference games last season, but one was at national championship runner-up Michigan late in the season. Can they Lions make it two straight in Ann Arbour?

Thursday, Jan. 16: Measuring Stick
Notre Dame at Pitt
The Top 10 women's program at Notre Dame visits the Petersen Events Center to take on Suzie McConnell-Serio's Panthers. Pitt is still a ways away from competing against top teams like the Irish, but it will be interesting to see how long McConnell-Serio can keep her team in the game.

Saturday Jan. 18: Same Teams, New League
Pitt at Syracuse
Syracuse is at the top of the rankings, as usual. Pitt is climbing the polls with scrappy defense, as usual. The Panthers bring their physical style to the Carrier Dome for an old fashioned "Big Easy" style showdown... except this is an ACC game now.

Saturday Jan 25: Try to Beat the Best
Wagner at Robert Morris
Wagner was the preseason pick atop the NEC this season, although Robert Morris usually has quite a bit to say who wins the Northeast Conference championship.

Monday Jan 27: The Devils Went Up to Oakland
Duke at Pitt
This is the game Pitt fans circled the day the schedule came out. The Oakland Zoo will try to etch out its' place among the ACC's best student sections when Jabarri Parker, Coach K and the Blue Devils come to the Pete.

Josh Bell had not hit a walk-off home run since he was a member of the Altoona Curve in 2015. He changed that Friday with a soaring shot for the left field loonies.

Francisco Cervelli is as passionate about the current state of Venezuela as anybody you'll find. Last month, the Pirates' catcher spoke passionately about the movement, his country's state of affairs and the future of Venezuela.

Monday night was more than a game. For Jameson Taillon, it was another heave in an ongoing push to liberation from a disease that can break down the toughest of men.
