Thursday's Pregame Beat: Only two more days of Finals Week

Game of the night: 9:00 pm: Oral Roberts @ Gonzaga Yeah, that's the kind of night that it is. Oral Roberts is one of the best teams in the Summit League and should compete with Oakland and South Dakota State for the league title. They have a talented front court with Dominique Morrison, Steven Roundtree and Michael Craion. And while that trio averages 39.2 ppg and 18.5 rpg, they will have their work cut out for the against the likes of Elias Harris and Robert Sacre in the Zag's front court. Gonzaga is talented, but there are question marks about this team, like whether Harris ever turns back into the freshman year Harris or if Gonzaga's perimeter can ever become effective defensively. The rest of the top 25 8:00 pm: Kennesaw State @ No. 8 Missouri: We all know by now how powerful the Tiger offense is capable of being. Phil Pressey is a treat to watch. 8:00 pm: Savannah State @ No. 15 Wisconsin: Is Jordan Taylor a different player this year? He's sure has played like it over the first month of the season. Other notable games - 7:00 pm: Bradley @ George Washington - 7:00 pm: Arkansas-Pine Bluff @ Akron - 8:00 pm: Texas Southern @ Northwestern - 8:00 pm: Lipscomb @ Murray State - 8:00 pm: Troy @ Belmont - 10:00 pm: NC A&T @ St. Mary's - 10:00 pm: Howard @ Oregon State
