Didn't get the chance to do a full preview for a lot of reasons, but wanted you guys to have something to chew on before the game.

First off, remember the game is TONIGHT, NOT THURSDAY.
2nd, remember it's on MSG and Cox as well as 1410/1300.

Finally, here's your Blue Devil Breakdown for what should, on paper anyway, be an easy night for the Devils. But they don't play ball on paper, so we'll see what happens.

Bryant (8-16, 6-6 NEC) at CCSU (16-7, 9-3)
What to watch for
1) Just trying to be aggressive: The Blue Devils have lived at the foul line of late, partly because of big leads and partly because they've been aggressive with the ball and earned trips to the line. When they get there, the Devils have been great. They're 93-of-114 at the line in the last three games. That's 82 percent.

2) Home cooking: Central's defense is dominant at home, where the Blue Devils have held teams to 38 percent shooting in 10 games, including five games in which the opposition scored 53 or less.

3) Milestone watch: Ken Horton could get as high as 16th on the all time school scoring list with a big game against Bryant. Shemik Thompson is 10 points behind him heading into tonight. Robby Ptacek is 68 points shy of 1,000.
