There are six Top 25 teams in action tonight, with all of them big favorites at home on a night of buy games early in the 2021-22 college basketball season.
The No. 23 UConn Huskies kick things off at 6:30 p.m. against the LIU Blackbirds, who are no longer known as LIU-Brooklyn thanks to a campus merger. UConn is 2-0 with wins over Central Connecticut and Coppin State, and no desire to test themselves until playing in Auburn in the Bahamas to open a tournament next week. R.J. Cole makes them go, but Adama Sanogo leads all scorers for the Huskies with 20 ppg so far this season.
Also tonight the No. 2 UCLA Bruins catch a winless North Florida Ospreys team playing their fifth game in eight nights, all of them in Texas or further west. The Bruins knocked off No. 5 Villanova last Friday in overtime behind 25 points from Wooden Award candidate Johnny Juzang. The closest UNF has come to a win was a 72-63 loss at Arizona State Monday night, and ASU has looked less than impressive so far this year.
