William and Mary visits NSU to highlight Monday's games

Quick hits on Monday's games:

William and Mary (2-2) at Norfolk State (4-1), 6 p.m.
The Tribe had virtually its entire roster available for the first time last week in Blacksburg and it showed in a 19-point pasting of Virginia Tech. William and Mary's size makes this a bad matchup for Norfolk State, and while the Spartans are off to a fine start, if the Tribe plays anywhere near the level if found against Tech we fear that NSU will need its "A" game just to keep this competitive. William and Mary 75, Norfolk State 62

East Tennessee State (0-5) at Richmond (4-1), 7 p.m.
The Lady Bucs handled the Spiders at home when these teams met last year, but this is hardly the same ETSU team. These Lady Bucs are averaging 26.2 turnovers a game, and we figure a pesky team like Richmond will shake them down for at least that many tonight. The Spiders probably weren't quite ready to excel on the road against a team as good as Florida Gulf Coast on Friday, but we look for them to get back to their winning ways tonight. Richmond 82, ETSU 67

Hampton (3-1) at Chicago State (0-6), 8 p.m.
Chicago State won 24 games and reached the third round of the WNIT last year, but this year's results have them candidates for one of the 10 worst teams in Division I (closest margin of defeat is 24 points). Not only do we expect Hampton to roll, we'd be surprised if Chicago State manages more than 39 points. Hampton 64, Chicago State 38
