Hampton visits Florida to highlight Tuesday's action

Quick hits about Tuesday's games:

Longwood (1-3) at Campbell (3-0), 3 p.m.
The Lancers have struggled in their last two games, 20-plus point losses to George Mason and at High Point, and we're never crazy about picking them on the road. We hope they prove us wrong, but.... Campbell 72, Longwood 58

Hampton (2-0) at Florida (2-1), 7 p.m.
The Lady Pirates smoked the Gators last year in Hampton, but our sense is that the Gators will be hell-bent on revenge in the Gainesville rematch. Furthermore, we wouldn't be surprised if the Lady Pirates encounter a ton of foul trouble tonight. Not saying the officials will be calling it a certain way, but, well, let's just see what happens. We typically get burned whenever we pick against Hampton, but our gut says the Gators find a way tonight. Florida 55, Hampton 53

Virginia-Wise (2-4) at Liberty (1-2), 7 p.m.
Not sure the rest of us learn much from matchups such as these, but Lady Flames coach Carey Green usually sprinkles in a game or two like this during his non-conference schedule, and his record for putting teams together that peak in conference play speaks for itself. Liberty 82, Virginia-Wise 42

Charlotte (4-0) at VCU (2-1), 7 p.m.
We've been somewhat disappointed in the rollout of the 2011-12 Rams, and even Sunday's 78-70 at UMKC wasn't fully satisfying because it took a 40-point effort from Courtney Hurt to solidify it. We're glad she went off, of course, but the idea was for the Rams to play a more balanced game so that Hurt wouldn't have to always bail them out. Charlotte looks to be the best team the Rams have faced so far, so if they have another gear in them, tonight would be a fine time to shift into it. VCU 74, Charlotte 69
