Fordham at St. John's, 7 p.m. ET
After seeing their four-game winning streak get snapped in an 81-65 loss to the San Francisco Dons on Tuesday, the 6-3 Red Storm will look to rebound against the 1-7 Rams, who have dropped four consecutive games.
Iona at Rutgers, 9:30 p.m. ET
The Scarlet Knights (4-2 overall) lost their last contest, an 80-67 defeat at the hands of Ole Miss in the SEC-Big East Challenge on Dec. 1, which also snapped Rutgers' four-game winning streak.

Seton Hall at Wake Forest, 7 p.m. ET
The Pirates head to North Carolina for a meeting with the Demon Deacons after a 68-59 win over the N.J.I.T. Highlanders on Tuesday. Off to a 6-2 start, Seton Hall will face a Wake Forest team coming off a 71-60 win over the High Point Panthers on Wednesday.
Hofstra at LIU Brooklyn, 2 p.m. ET
Winners of two in a row, the Blackbirds host the Pride, who have dropped four consecutive games. LIU Brooklyn, at 2-4 overall, have earned victories over the Columbia Lions and Lafayette Leopards.
