It’s Feast Week, so college hoops is now in full swing. We’ll do our best to keep tabs with how things are going, and there’s plenty going on Tuesday.
|Clemson vs. Georgia||1:37 p.m.|
|Nicholls State vs. Ole Miss||7 p.m.||SEC Network|
|Auburn vs. Duke||8 p.m.||ESPN|
|Texas A&M vs. Washington||11:30 p.m.||ESPN2|
The headline attraction of course is in Maui. In a Maui Invitational second round matchup, the Auburn Tigers will get a crack at the Duke Blue Devils. Duke’s fantastic freshmen — Zion Williamson, R.J. Barrett, Cam Reddish and Tre Jones — have been awesome to start the season. Duke mowed through the San Diego State Aztecs on Monday, while the Tigers survived in OT against the Xavier Musketeers. Bryce Brown, Jared Harper and the boys in blue and orange will have to do their best to try and take Duke down. It will obviously be no easy task. But this could be entertaining nonetheless.
The other premier matchup on the night is all the way out in Vancouver. The Texas A&M Aggies will be facing the Washington Huskies at 11:30 p.m. ET. This game is part of the second annual Vancouver Showcase, and will be going down at the Vancouver Convention Center. A&M is off to a very sluggish start this season, standing at 1-3. Granted, they’ve had a tough schedule, facing the UC Irvine Anteaters, Gonzaga Bulldogs and Minnesota Golden Gophers. But it’s still perhaps concerning when they’re facing yet another quality opponent in the Huskies.
Meanwhile, the Ole Miss Rebels will have an easy go at it when they take on Nicholls State. Ole Miss is 1-1 so far on the season, with a win over the Western Michigan Broncos and a loss to the Butler Bulldogs on their resume so far. This will be a tuneup of sort before they face the Baylor Bears on Friday down in Niceville.
Finally, the Georgia Bulldogs will have a stern test, as they face off with the Clemson Tigers down in the Cayman Islands. That’s the first game of the day, but it won’t be on TV.
