Happy Valentine's Day, friends. What better way to celebrate with your significant other or what better way to take your mind off your being alone, abandoned by the world on this day of love than with college basketball? Steve Fetch gave you the All Valentine's Team earlier and here are tonight's games.
(13) Louisville at Temple – ESPN2
This game was postponed from yesterday. Louisville has crushed everyone they are suppose to beat and lost to anyone very good or North Carolina. In their last 5 conference wins, Louisville has won by 39, 12, 39, 17 and 15. Temple has spent February being crushed by 16 against Villanova, 23 at SMU and 14 by Houston.
(23) SMU at Rutgers – ESPN3
Another postponement from yesterday. SMU goes for the season sweep of the Scarlet Knights. SMU has won 3 straight with wins over Memphis and Cincinnati. The 3 wins have been by 15, 23 and 21. They haven't been messing around. The first meeting was won by 14. The Mustangs held Rutgers to 32.7% from the field, 5 of 17 from 3. Markus Kennedy had 18-10-4 blocks. Rutgers has played one game that's been decided by single digits since January 4.
(2) Arizona at Arizona State – ESPN
A hacky writer would say there will be no love lost between these rivals. Arizona State's season turned around after back to back losses at UCLA and Arizona. The Sun Devils have won 5 of 6. Arizona swept the Oregon schools at home after losing to Cal. The first meeting was all Arizona. The Wildcats shot 56% while holding the Sun Devils to 34%. Six Wildcats had double figures with Nick Johnson and Aaron Gordon leading the way with 17 and 16 respectively.
Detroit at Oakland – ESPNU
Canisius at Niagara – ESPNU
North Florida at Jacksonville – ESPN3
Monmouth at Iona
The MAAC leading Gaels can extend their conference lead to 2 games tonight. They stomped Monmouth 89-71 ten days ago.
Princeton at Brown
Harvard at Columbia
Dartmouth at Yale
The Ivy leaders face the middle of the pack. Yale is following their big win at Harvard last Saturday.

The Bears look to extend their half game conference lead to a full game by sweeping Lipscomb. Mercer smashed the Bisons by 21 a month ago.
Northern Kentucky at Kennesaw St – ESPN3
