Chattanooga

(14-8, 8-0)

at Davidson (10-11, 6-1)

7 p.m., Belk Arena

The Southern Conference’s top two teams will face off, with the lead in the conference standings at stake. A Wildcats win would leave them a half-game back of the Mocs, who have won 10 straight and are undefeated in SoCon play. Davidson, which has won three straight, can also get its overall record to .500 for the first time this season. Bill Kiser

J.C. Smith (13-6, 5-4) at

Winston-Salem State

(11-8, 6-3)

Long-time rivals in the CIAA Southern Division will go at it, with the two among four teams tied at 2-1 in division play. The Golden Bulls have won two straight; the Rams saw their two-game winning streak snapped with a loss to Fayetteville State on Saturday. B.K.

Newberry (12-4, 8-4)

at Queens (8-8, 6-6)

The Royals – whose game against Newberry was pushed back a day because of the weather – have been stumbling, dropping three of their past four South Atlantic Conference games, including a last-second loss at Anderson on Saturday. Newberry is in a four-way tie for second in the conference standings, but saw its four-game winning streak snapped with a loss to Carson-Newman on Saturday. B.K.
