A Big Night Of College Basketball

The Columbus State basketball teams are home tonight at Herbert Greene Court in the Lumpkin Center. Georgia College is the opponent, and the women play at 5:30 pm and the men play at 7:30 pm. We’ll have the games for you, here on NewsRadio 540 WDAK, and iHeart Radio.

Auburn welcomes Arkansas to town tonight. The Tigers are 17-and-8 on the season and even in SEC play at 6-and-6. Auburn is coming off a 64-53 win over Vanderbilt on Saturday. The Razorbacks have lost three in-a-row to slip to 14-and-11 and 5-and-7.

Georgia plays Mississippi State in Athens tonight. The Bulldogs will try to end a six-game losing streak. Their most recent setback was Saturday against LSU. UGA is 10-and-15 on the season, including 1-and-11 in the SEC. Mississippi State is 18-and-7.

Georgia Tech is on its home floor tonight against Pittsburgh. The Yellow Jackets suffered their seventh straight loss Saturday against Florida State. Tech is 11-and-15 on the season, including 3-and-10 in the ACC. The Panthers have lost nine in a row and are 12-and-14 overall.

Last night, Alabama was held scoreless for more than five minutes as Texas A&M made a 12-point second-half comeback to beat the Tide 65-56 in College Station. Tevin Mack led the way for 'Bama with 14 points. No other player was in double-figures. The Crimson Tide's have lost a season-high three straight. They welcome Vanderbilt to Tuscaloosa Saturday night. The Commodores are 0-and-13 in the SEC.

No. 5 Tennessee bounced back from a loss at Kentucky over the

weekend and outlasted Vanderbilt 58-46 in the Volunteers' first

game since losing their No. 1 ranking. Forward Grant Williams led

the way with 14 points and 11 rebounds for Tennessee, handing Vandy

its 14th straight loss.

No. 24 Maryland squandered an 11-point lead over the final four

minutes but Bruno Fernando's put back with 7.8 seconds left lifted

the Terrapins to a 66-65 victory over 21st-ranked Iowa. Maryland

got 17 points from Anthony Cowan, who shot 5 of 10 from 3-point

range and had eight rebounds.

No. 15 Purdue was able to grind out a 48-46 win at Indiana thanks

to a Matt Haarms tip-in with 3.2 seconds remaining. Indiana's slim

NCAA Tournament hopes likely die with the loss, the Hoosiers' fifth

straight to their in-state rivals. Ryan Cline had 11 points to lead

the Boilermakers.
