Connecticut at St. John's
Norm’s Storm looks to bounce back from a drubbing at the hands number 1 Pitt, but they’ll have their work cut out for them against the number 4 Huskies. Still, the Connecticut-St. John’s rivalry will be alive and kicking Thursday night at the Garden.
Portland at Nets
The meadowlands will be the scene of perhaps the most anticipated return of the year: Channing Frye's return to the tri-state area, of course. In all seriousness, Devin Harris vs Brandon Roy should make for a good night.
Saturday January 17
Philadelphia at Knicks
This is a double revenge game. Last year, the Knicks came to Philly and were destroyed. But also, Giants fans will be looking for a measure of revenge against the city of brotherly hate. They probably won't get it from the Knicks, though.
Sunday January 18
Eagles at Cardinals
Still hurting, Giants fans? Well grab a spot on the couch next to Jets fans, and learn of the joy that comes from rooting against your rival. Seriously though, has there ever been a less-likely NFC title game than this one: The once dead Eagles vs the once Powder-puff Cards. And to think we though the fiesta bowl would be the biggest football game played in Arizona this year.
Monday January 19
Long Island at St Francis
The Battle of Downtown Brooklyn! At 4-1, The Blackbirds are starting to generate some buzz. St. Francis will have their hands full trying to stop LIU’s tandem of Kyle Johnson and Jaytornah Wisseh.
Tuesday January 20
We hear something’s happening down in Washington today. We’re not too sure what, something about change or something. Perhaps we’ll get our college football playoff?!
Wednesday January 21
Queens at NYIT
The Knights may be struggling, but they’ll get a chance for a big win when they travel to Old Westbury to take on the NYIT Bears. NYIT, led by ECC player of the week Bryant Lassiter, is strong, but very, very streaky.
Phoenix at Knicks
Mike D'antoni's new team doesn't run nearly as well as his old team. However, D'Antoni's old team looks slow and tired without him. Look for Steve Nash to push the pace. One thing is certain, with the speed that this game will move at, fans should bring oxygen masks.
