Outlook: The Midshipmen bounced back from an overtime loss at Air Force to rout Division III Gettysburg, 93-62, Wednesday night. Soph Michael Heary (17 points) and freshman Seth Schuknecht (16) led Navy's balanced offense. Stanford, with all five starters returning, was rated a Top 25 team in preseason polls, but losses to San Francisco and North Carolina dropped the Cardinal from the rankings. Soph playmaker Brevin Knight is an All-America candidate. Stanford has lost its 7-1 soph center, Tim Young, to a back injury, and the Mids hope to take advantage with 6-11 Alex Kohnen and 6-8 Josh Height.

Morgan State (1-6) at West Virginia (3-3)

Time: 7:30

Site: WVU Coliseum, Morgantown, W.Va.

Radio: WEAA (88.9 FM)

Outlook: Any game would look like a breather to Morgan after Wednesday's 104-60 pounding by No. 6 Georgetown -- even one on the Mountaineers' home floor, where they are 301-77. The Bears stayed with Georgetown briefly, then were buried, becoming the third team to give up 100-plus points to the Hoyas. They also were outrebounded, 60-30. West Virginia took Georgetown into overtime this season before losing by three. Sophomore F Damian Owens (Seat Pleasant, Md.) leads WVU at 14.8 ppg and 9.3 rpg. Four Mountaineers average in double figures. These teams never have met.

Site: Daniel-Meyer Coliseum, Fort Worth, Texas

Outlook: Coppin ran its home winning streak, the longest in the nation, to 33 games with Monday's 86-73 victory over Illinois-Chicago. Sophomore G Antonio Brockington scored 30 points to lead four Eagles in double figures. Senior G Allen Watson had nine assists. Brockington is averaging 19.8 ppg, and Terquin Mott -- a transfer from La Salle -- 17.7. Junior F Reggie Welch is averaging 16.6 ppg and 7.4 rpg. This is the first meeting between these schools. TCU defeated North Texas, 77-67, on Tuesday behind 24 points from freshman F Damion Walker (22.9 ppg, 11.4 rpg) and 19 from junior G Jeff Jacobs.
