Big Basketball Saturday

Posted: December 08, 2012

Villanova at Penn, 8 p.m., NBC-SN

The Wildcats (4-4, 0-2 Big Five) continue to be plagued by turnover problems. They committed 20 in Wednesday night's home loss to Temple and now average 16.6 per game. The Quakers (2-6, 0-0), who have been off since last Saturday's loss to Penn State, will try to break a nine-game losing streak to Villanova.

Drexel at Princeton, 2 p.m.

The Dragons (2-6) continue to search for their missing defense. They're allowing 69.2 points per game while opponents shoot 46.1 percent from the field - an astonishing 52.6 percent from inside the three-point arc.

La Salle at Northeastern, 7 p.m.

The Explorers (5-1) knocked down 16 three-point baskets, two shy of the school record, in their 82-57 win over Penn State on Wednesday. Tyreek Duren had a career-high 29 points in that game and is averaging 24.0 points in his last three. - Joe Juliano
