The Friday night lineup for college basketball is a light one with just four ranked teams in action on the evening. However, two in particular are worth keeping an eye on.

The No. 8 Kansas Jayhawks will test themselves on the road against a Big East foe when traveling back to the New York City area to face the St. John’s Red Storm. They will play the very first basketball game at the new UBS Arena in Elmont, NY.

In the heartland, we’ll have a big time Big Ten battle as the No. 2 Purdue Boilermakers will open conference play against the Iowa Hawkeyes. Both teams are undefeated and would gain a huge boost to open league play with a win.
