South Dakota got a good win fairly solidly over North Carolina Central. Fort Wayne pulled victory out in three overtimes in quite the game against Texas-Pan American. Western Illinois had a good win today against Buffalo, winning by 9 on a neutral court. Chicago State got hammered by Kent State and looks to be a poor team this year. South Dakota State had another disappointing loss, this time in New York against Hofstra. Denver had a chance to get a home win over a Pac-12 team but California escaped with the win while Benedictine got a solid win at Friends to go to 4-1 on the year.

SOUTH DAKOTA STATE (1-2) vs. Marshall – 2K Sports Classic – Hempstead, NY – 1:30 PM
KANSAS CITY (1-1) vs. Albany – Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame Tip-Off – Uncasville, Conn. – 1:30 PM
BENEDICTINE (4-1) vs. Bethel – Friends University Classic – 2 PM
TEXAS-PAN AMERICAN (1-3) vs. Eastern Illinois – EMU “Ice Man” Classic – Ypsilanti, MI – 3:30 PM
NORTH DAKOTA STATE (1-1) vs. Mayville State – 5 PM
SAINT MARY (2-4) vs. College of the Ozarks – 6 PM
FORT WAYNE (2-1) @ Eastern Michigan – EMU “Ice Man” Classic – 6 PM
OAKLAND (1-2) @ Pittsburgh – 6 PM – ESPN3
IUPUI (2-1) vs. Bradley – 6 PM – Comcast Sportsnet Chicago
WESTERN ILLINOIS (2-1) @ Evansville – 2012 Coaches vs. Cancer – 7:35 PM
CAL STATE BAKERSFIELD (0-3) vs. Loyola Marymount – 9 PM

South Dakota State won’t want to go 0-2 on their trip to New York but Marshall is expected to be an even tougher game than Hofstra was. Kansas City has a tough game against Albany, upset winners over Washington earlier in the week.  Benedictine is favored over Bethel on a neutral court while Texas-Pan American tries to get back on the winning track in a real good matchup with Eastern Illinois. North Dakota State should have no problems at all with non-D1 Mayville state while Saint Mary is a favorite against the College of the Ozarks.  Fort Wayne gets their toughest test of the weekend against Eastern Michigan, and Oakland has a real tough matchup at Pittsburgh. They may fall to 1-3 but their schedule has been brutal compared to other Summit teams. IUPUI is off to a good start and a nice home win over Bradley would be a good addition to their non-conference resume. Western Illinois pulled off an upset on Friday against Buffalo and now will try to do it against the host, Evansville. Cal State Bakersfield has a real chance to beat Loyola Marymount Saturday night.
