College basketball: Pointers face Platteville

Men, women's teams both are nationally ranked

The nationally-ranked University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point men's and women's basketball teams are hoping the results are the same as the first time they played UW-Platteville just two weeks ago.

Ranked No. 5 in the most recent D3hoops.com poll, the Pointers men will look to remain unbeaten in the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference when they travel to Bo Ryan Court for a 7 p.m. tip tonight.

The Pioneers gave UWSP all it could handle when the teams met in the Quandt Fieldhouse on Jan. 16, before the Pointers eventually secured a 65-60 win.

While the men hit the road, UWSP's women, who dropped a spot to No. 16 in the most recent D3hoops.com poll, will enjoy the homecourt advantage tonight looking to duplicate a 71-49 thumping of Platteville in their first meeting.

A game behind UW-Whitewater and UW-Oshkosh in the loss column entering this week's conference play, the Pointers (8-3 WIAC) can ill-afford a loss at home if they want a crack at winning the regular season title.
