On Today: 11/18/2011

Lots of incomplete game descriptions in this one due to all the preseason tournaments, where the late-round matchups aren't set until after the first round.

Temple vs. Purdue (ESPNU, 1 p.m. Eastern)
The first semifinal of the Puerto Rico Tip-Off Classic.

Tulsa vs. Northwestern (ESPNU, 3:30 p.m. Eastern)
The first semifinal of the Charleston Classic.

Texas A&M vs. St. John's (ESPN2, 4:30 p.m. Eastern)
This is the third place game of the 2K Sports Classic to Benefit Coaches vs. Cancer.

Davidson at Duke (ESPNU, 6 p.m. Eastern)
"The Blue Devils put their 88-game non-conference home winning streak on the line against intrastate rival Davidson. De'Mon Brooks and Ryan Kelly are key forwards."
(I'll buy that De'Mon Brooks is a key forward, but Ryan Kelly is not. All that talent on the Devils, and the focus is on the sixth man -- but not in that role. With the other possibilities here, including stuff like Seth Curry facing his brother's old school, this is one of the worst teasers on the young season.)

Mississippi State vs. Arizona (ESPN2, 6:30 p.m. Eastern)
The 2K Sports Classic championship, likely to tip closer to 7 p.m. Eastern.

Alabama vs. Wichita State (ESPN2, 9 p.m. Eastern)
The second semifinal of the Puerto Rico Tip-Off Classic.
