Thursday, Nov. 18

Who: Hofstra (1-0) vs. North Carolina (1-0)
Where: San Juan, PR, Coliseo de Puerto Rico (18,500)
When: 5:00 p.m.
The dish: The Pride of the CAA clobbered a DII school by 40 points in their opener. Being a CAA team, they are capable of hanging around for a while. UNC beat Lipscomb by 14 in its opener, but should have learned from some mistakes. Carolina has too much for Hoftsra.
Forecast: UNC, 90-67.

Where: Charleston, SC, Carolina First Arena (5,100)
When: 6:00 p.m.

The dish: ECU has easy wins over DII Erskine and instate foe Campbell. The Pirates have added some athleticism to their roster and may hang around with the favored Wolfpack. NCSU should be able to sort out its rotation some this weekend, beginning with a likely win over ECU.
Forecast: N.C. State, 82-71.

Who: Florida State (3-0) at Florida International (2-0)
Where: Miami, FL, U.S. Century Bank Arena (5,000)
