MIAMI, FL — College basketball ESPN3 schedule and AP Top 25 games on the fixtures for Wednesday, Jan. 10. No. 1 Villanova v No. 10 Xavier, while No. 4 Michigan State and No. 7 Duke look to bounce back from weekend respective defeats.
A total of 18 games are listed on the ESPN3 schedule for today, while five games involving top 25 ranked teams are also on the program.
A host of games on the ESPN3 schedule are set to tip-off at 7:00 pm ET, with Albany, Wofford and Furman among the teams down to get underway at that time.
Missouri State and Loyola-Chicago are also on the schedule today with both programs hoping to shake off their recent hiccups and return to their respective mid and early season form.
The Bears (13-4, 3-1 Missouri Valley Conference) have won four of the last five games, but were handed a first conference defeat this season by Illinois State.
On Wednesday, they will travel to Evansville with a 67 percent chance of bouncing back, according to ESPN’s Basketball Power Index.
Meanwhile, the Loyola Chicago Ramblers (12-4, 2-2 Missouri Valley Conference), who snapped a five-game skid on the road in league play with a 61-57 win over Indiana State a week ago, will take on Illinois State on the road today and will start with a 58 percent chance of winning this game, according to ESPN’s Basketball Power Index.
In the AP Top 25 schedule, No. 1 Villanova and No. 10 Xavier will battle in the lone ranked v ranked contest on the day.
