All times listed are Eastern, adjust accordingly.

Pac-12

USC Trojans (18-5, 7-3) at Arizona State Sun Devils (13-11, 3-8), 8 p.m. (Pac-12 Networks National, Arizona, L.A.)
UCLA Bruins (13-10, 4-6) at No. 17 Arizona Wildcats (19-5, 7-4), 8 p.m. (ESPN)

Both L.A. schools head to the desert seeking a season sweep of their opponents for the weekend. The Trojans' chances are slightly better in that they get the Sun Devils, a squad they defeated by 10 back on January 7th, first. As for the Bruins, they'll be challenged by a Wildcat squad that's won three in a row, and who only fell at Pauley thanks to a miracle shot by Bryce Alford as time was running out. Note that UCLA has won just two of its last six.

Atlantic 10

No. 19 Dayton Flyers (20-3, 10-1) at Rhode Island Rams (14-10, 6-5), 7 p.m. (ESPN2)

On Tuesday, the Flyers barely extended their winning streak to eight, as they only defeated the Duquesne Dukes by two at home. They'll need to bring their A-game to grab a ninth straight victory, as the Rams are still difficult to defeat in Kingston.

Elsewhere

Monmouth Hawks (20-5, 12-2) at Rider Broncs (10-15, 6-8), 9 p.m. (ESPNU)

The Hawks have rattled off six wins in a row since falling at Manhattan Jaspers on January 21st, but they've yet to begin their home-and-home with local rival Rider, who has already defeated Iona Gaels in Lawrenceville.

Ohio University Bobcats (15-8, 6-5) at Buffalo Bulls (14-10, 7-4), 7 p.m. (ESPNU)

This is a crucial matchup for MAC Tournament seeding, with both squads chasing the Akron Zips in the East Division. The pair will meet again in Athens on February 27th.
