Men’s College Basketball: Games to watch this week

With marquee tournaments like the Maui Invitational, 14 schools in the AP Top 25 lost at least one game last week.

There are more great non-conference matchups this week, even as conference schedules open up. Here are some of the top men’s basketball games coming up this week:

Miami, coming off its first Final Four appearance, is one of the few ranked schools that avoided a loss last week. Kentucky is another. The two meet for the first time in nearly 15 years on Monday night. 

Five Hurricanes are currently scoring in double figures, led by Wooga Poplar at 18 points a contest. Kentucky’s only loss was to top-ranked Kansas. The Wildcats have won three straight since that loss. They have six players scoring in double figures, led by Antonio Reeves at 18.2 points a game.

The Tar Heels lost to Villanova, 83-81, in overtime in the semifinals of the Battle 4 Atlantis, before rebounding to handle No. 2 Arkansas, 87-72. RJ Davis had 23 points in the loss to the Wildcats before scoring Arkansas with 30. He is up to 15.8 points a game for North Carolina while Armando Bacot leads the team with 17.2 points and 13.2 rebounds a contest.

Wade Taylor IV leads the Aggies in scoring at 18.2 points a game. The Cavaliers also suffered their first defeat of the season this week as they were beaten soundly by Wisconsin at the Fort Myers Tip-Off. Reece Beekman (11.8 ppg) and Ryan Dunn (10.3 ppg) lead Virginia.

The week’s biggest clash takes place in Lawrence Friday night when the last two men’s college basketball champions face off. The Huskies should have set a record coming into this matchup with 24 straight non-conference wins by double digits by doing so against New Hampshire on Monday. 

Getting No. 25 will be a tall task in Lawrence. The Huskies have five players in double figures, led by Alex Karaban (16.8 ppg, 6.2 rpg). Kansas was soundly beaten by No. 4 Marquette in the semifinals of the Maui Invitational, before rebounding nicely with a victory over No. 7 Tennessee. Hunter Dickinson leads the Jayhawks with 21.2 points and 12.7 rebounds a contest.

The state of Wisconsin is on the line Friday night in Madison as the Badgers host No. 4 Marquette, which just knocked off top-ranked Kansas before falling to No. 2 Purdue at the Maui Invitational. Wisconsin leads this series, 70-59, and has won the last two games, including an 80-77 victory over the Golden Eagles in Milwaukee last year. 

The Badgers knocked No. 24 Virginia from the ranks of the unbeaten last week. AJ Storr (13.3 ppg) leads a balanced attack for the Badgers. The three-headed monster of Kam Jones (16.2 ppg), Oso Ighodaro (15 ppg, 7.3 rpg) and reigning Big East Player of the Year Tyler Kolek (13.5 ppg, 5.5 apg, 5.3 rpg) paces Marquette.
