Florida Atlantic and Florida International each play winnable games as each tries to move above .500 in Sun Belt play early on in the conference slate.
8 p.m., Florida Atlantic Owls (5-7, 1-1) vs. Troy Trojans (5-8, 0-2): Greg Gantt is having a tremendous senior campaign for the Owls, averaging 21.8 points on career-best shooting numbers and hitting 42.5 percent from beyond the arc. That's good for ninth in the country. Troy hasn't won a game in conference play in two tries, but they'll be a tough test for Richard Pitino's squad, with Kenpom.com giving them a one-point edge.
8 p.m., Florida International Golden Panthers (4-5, 1-1) vs. Western Kentucky Hilltoppers (8-5, 2-0): The Panthers head to Bowling Green to take on a traditionally strong Sun Belt squad in the Hilltoppers. Western Kentucky doesn't have many great wins -- they beat a poor Big East squad in DePaul -- but they're close to the best the conference has to offer.
