A Six Pack For Wednesday

A look at the six most notable games on Wednesday's schedule:

Siena at Pittsburgh
The Saints deserve a lot of credit for their stacked non-conference schedule, but they still haven't been able to notch a marquee win. To get one here, Edwin Ubiles and Co. will have to outrun and outshoot the bigger and more physical Panthers.

St. Mary's at Oregon
The Gaels have a great opportunity to pick up an OOC road win against the struggling Ducks, who have lost four of five.

UNC-Asheville at Duke
It's going to be a long night for Asheville against the angry Blue Devils, who return to the court for the first time since their loss to Michigan 11 days ago.

Akron at VCU
A good mid-major match-up between the best in the Colonial and (maybe) the best in the MAC.

Illinois State at Central Michigan
The slightly surprising Redbirds take their perfect record on the road. Will they be able to stay unbeaten through the weekend (they face a dangerous Illinois-Chicago team on Saturday)?

Canisius at Syracuse
Don't worry Syracuse fans - no matter whan happens in this one, it can't be any more brutal than the other night.
