* #10 Butler @ Northwestern - 8 pm ET (also on BTN) – this would have been a little more exciting had NW’s Kevin Coble not injured his foot, but Butler is going to have to be ready for this one if they want the win in addition to the RPI boost for playing a Big Ten team away.

Chicago City Rankings - 11/

UIC managed to beat NCAA Division II University of Illinois Springfield in its season opener, but that doesn't help in any of the rankings used in this equation. A trip to Central Michigan - which just lost to Princeton - on Wednesday will provide more of a test. Sure to be on the mind of Flames fans, and Chicago basketball aficionados in general, is next Monday's game at the Pavilion versus an Illinois State team that includes a number of local products, including Osiris Eldridge.

Chicago City Rankings - 11/

Loyola lost it's opener at Kansas State in a humbling fashion, but the Wildcats are going to be one of the second-tier teams in the Big 12 and so it's not a particularly bad loss. The Ramblers get fellow Jesuit university Canisius on Tuesday and then go to Massachusetts to take on Holy Cross. Those are teams closer to Loyola's overall talent level, so we'll learn a lot about a young Ramblers squad this week.

Canisius (0-0) at Loyola (0-1)

When: 7 p.m. at Gentile Center

Radio: WAUR 930-AM, WNTD 950-AM, WLUW 88.7-FM

Skinny: The Ramblers make their home debut against a Canisius squad that brings back five starters from an 11-20 team. Senior guard Frank Turner (15.6 ppg) is the top scorer on a team picked to finish seventh in the Metro Atlantic. Loyola hopes it learned from Friday's 38-point loss at Kansas State. Some high points? Junior forward Andy Polka grabbed 12 rebounds in the first half (going over the 500-mark for his career), but didn't get any after halftime. If the Ramblers are going to win this game that's considered to be part of the Jesuit Basketball Project, then they'll need to tone down the turnovers. Junior guard Terrance Hill, playing his first Division I game, committed 7 of the team's 25 miscues.
