Games Iím looking forward to seeing this weekend. Iíd love to watch Harvard win the Great Alaska Shootout, but Iíll never be able to stay up that late. Iím still expecting the Crimson to win that title.


FRIDAY

Duke vs. Arizona at MSG: Two of the three anointed freshmen, Dukeís Jabari Parker and Arizonaís Aaron Gordon, meet.


Northeastern at VCU:
The Rams havenít been playing well; NU has been surprising, would be a great win for the Huskies.


SMU vs. Virginia in Corpus Christi, Texas:
I keep hearing SMU is really good, Iíve got to see myself. Virginia projects to be on the bubble, canít afford a loss here.

Florida State at Florida: Great rivalry game.

San Diego State vs. Creighton in Anaheim: This is a matchup you donít see often; itís the blessing of these early-season tournaments. Both teams project into the tournament.

Green Bay vs. Harvard in Alaska: OK, Iíll never make it, Iíll fall asleep. Harvard needs to pay attention and bring home the Great Alaska Shootout title.

SATURDAY

Pitt at Duquesne: Pitt should win easily but itís still a city rivalry and I want to see if thatís enough to make this close.

Rhode Island at George Mason: I want to see how much Danny Hurleyís URI team has improved.

SUNDAY

Wichita State at Saint Louis: Two of the best defensive teams in the country; should be tense, half-court basketball.

VCU at Belmont: The opposite of the game listed above; this will be two teams running, pressing and chucking up threes.

Kentucky vs. Providence in Brooklyn: The Friars can win this game; big resume builder.
