There a dueling national broadcasts tonight.

SUPERCUT!

Anyway, there are four games today. Here are your highlights:

  • Albany at Johns Hopkins: There's something hilarious about reckless-and-free-spirited Albany heading to Emily Post-reared Homewood Field to play old-money-and-sick-of-you-damn-kids Johns Hopkins. The contrast between the two programs couldn't be any starker, and ESPNU will televise this display of dichotomy to a national audience. There are NCAA Tournament implications inherent in the game -- more for the Jays than the Danes given the fact that Albany has a path to The Big Barbeque through the America East -- but those implications are less fun than seeing the stodgy Homewood crowd react to the Thompson Trio.
  • Denver at Villanova: A loss tonight doesn't doom the Wildcats -- Villanova is currently 2-0 in Big East play -- but it does create some problems for Villanova: After tonight, the Wildcats still need to play Rutgers, St. John's, and Providence in league action. Not only is there no guarantee that Villanova advances to Valhalla, but seeding is significantly important for the Big East Tournament this year: Avoiding Denver -- the presumptive one-seed -- in the tournament semifinals is a necessity for possibly stealing the conference's automatic invitation to the NCAA Tournament. Doing the somewhat unforeseeable tonight on LinedForEverySport Field would pretty much assure the Wildcats of less-pressurized run through April.

Here's today's full schedule with links to things so that you can monitor the carnage:
