Games of the Night: WKU at South Alabama

January 5th, 2008

Games of the Night


A companion to our daily Three Stars of the Day, we present the top three Games of the Night.


Western Kentucky (10-4) at South Alabama (11-3)

8:05 PM

The top two teams in the Sun Belt, both undefeated in league play so far, get together in Mobile. The big personal battle is Courtney Lee (WKU) vs Demetric Bennett (USA), both coming in averaging 20 ppg.

Prediction: South Alabama


USC (9-4) at Stanford (11-2)

8:00 PM

There's going to be a lot of Pac-10 games this year in the Games of the Night series. Both teams lost their conference openers, and Stanford needs a win or they'll drop out of the Top 25. The Cardinal are favored by 6 which seems a bit much, but USC hasn't proven they can win big Pac-10 road games.

Prediction: Stanford


Louisville (9-4) at Kentucky (6-6)

4:00 PM CBS

Before the season, you would have figured this easily would have been the Game of the Night.  And honestly, the only reason it makes the list now is simply because as a fan, its kind of fun to watch storied programs fizzle before your eyes. Kind of like turning on a Knicks game.

Prediction: Louisville
