7:00pm St. John’s @ Detroit

This should be an interesting game. Both schools are playing without some key components that were supposed to be in their lineups. For Detroit that means monster big man Eli Holman and his absence has drastically changed the look of the team that was the front runner for the Horizon League championship. All this has meant is that everyone else has to pick up the slack and Jason Calliste is one of those players. With the Titans having to be a more perimeter oriented team, he’ll have to play a larger role on both ends. Calliste is a capable scorer and he’s long and quick on D and with the team losing senior big man Nick Minnerath also recently to injury, Jason will have to shoulder more load. He’s been getting shots in games but it’s been a little inconsistent at making them so that will need to change in this game (I think) if victory is to be had. His season high has been 19 points to this point and as long as the shots fall, he could be a deciding factor in this contest. The two good things about tonight’s matchup are that the Titans are at home and the Red Storm are equally perimeter oriented with a short bench. This should be a very fast, up-and-down game and be exciting to watch.
And here is where all the ladies are playing today …
7:00pm Ohio @ Cleveland State – Takima Keane, sister to former Big Ten Player of the Year Kalisha at Michigan State, is a key part of the Cleveland State offense averaging 11.3 points per game. She’s a team best 2.2 threes per outing also. She’s had some big games so far this season and she could have one here.

Women's Basketball Games of the Week 12/5 - 12/8--College Sports Madness

No. 20 GREEN BAY AT TOLEDO (7 p.m. Thursday at Savage Arena in Toledo, Ohio)

The Phoenix have been quite strong in the early part of the season, with a 7-0 record that includes wins over Illinois, Georgia Tech, Marquette and Northern Iowa. Green Bay wants to win this game and go into a big 12-day break before its next contest on a positive note. Julie Wojta’s 26 points and 13 rebounds propelled the Phoenix in their 75-67 win over Northern Iowa. Toledo (5-2) has already played Green Bay once this season and lost, 84-68, despite 17 points from Courtney Ingersoll. The Rockets face Cleveland State on Dec. 10 and then have an eight-day layoff.

Men's Basketball Games of the Week 12/5 - 12/8--College Sports Madness

MILWAUKEE AT DePAUL (9 p.m. Monday at Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois)

Despite having a rebound total of 38.6 per game that only ranks 72nd in the nation – the highest of Milwaukee’s four offensive totals by far – the Panthers carry a 7-1 mark and 2-0 record in Horizon League play into the game in the Chicago suburbs. Since losing to Michigan State in November, Milwaukee has wins against Arkansas-Little Rock, Loyola (Ill.) and Illinois-Chicago. DePaul (4-2), which counts losses against Minnesota and Ole Miss as its defeats, is entering a stretch of games featuring area talent (the game against Milwaukee), followed by contests against Loyola (Ill.), Chicago State and Northern Illinois. Milwaukee’s leader, James Haarsma, averages 11.5 points and 9.0 rebounds per game.
