The Lineup

Maryland-Baltimore County at PENN STATE | 6:30 p.m. | Big Ten Network
The Nittany Lions wrapped up a string of five of six games away from home on Saturday with a tough 45-42 loss at Temple. The return home should help jump-start the Nittany Lion offense, which is averaging 79.0 ppg and shooting 54.2% from the floor in its three home games on the season. The Nittany Lions are 21-1 in non-conference home games the last three seasons.

Series History:
Penn State leads, 2-0

Morgan State at MINNESOTA | 7 p.m. | ESPNU
Minnesota welcomes Morgan State to Williams Arena for a non-conference tilt tonight. Morgan State (5-3) comes to Minneapolis having defeated Coppin State 80-67 on Dec. 5. The Gophers used a season-high 51 points in the first half to defeat Brown, 91-55. The 91 total points is also a season-high for Minnesota. 

Series History: First Meeting 

Vanderbilt at ILLINOIS | 8:30 p.m. | Big Ten Network
The Illini continue their three-game homestand Tuesday night, hosting Vanderbilt.  Illinois has won nine straight non-conference games at Assembly Hall. Illinois erased a 23-point deficit in last week's 76-74 victory at Clemson, marking the largest comeback in school history and ninth-largest second-half comeback in NCAA history. It also was the largest comeback from a halftime deficit in Big Ten history. With its win over No. 18 Clemson, Illinois became the first Big Ten team this season to record a road victory over a Top 25 opponent.

Series History:
Illinois leads, 5-3

Pittsburgh vs. INDIANA |18|  | 9 p.m. | ESPN | Jimmy V. Classic | Madison Square Garden
The Hoosiers are coming off a tough 80-68 loss at home to Maryland as part of the Big Ten/ACC Challenge. The Panthers enter the game with a 7-1 record, with their lone loss coming at the hands of Texas. On Friday, they defeated New Hampshire, 47-32. The meeting between the two teams is the first since March 23, 2003, in the NCAA Tournament - a game won by Pitt, 74-52 in Boston. This game is part of the 15th Annual Jimmy V. Classic and marks the second appearance in the event by the Hoosiers (1999).

Series History:
Pittsburgh leads, 4-3

IOWA at Northern Iowa | 7:05 p.m. | Panther Sports Network
The Iowa Hawkeyes (3-5) will compete in their first true road game Tuesday night at Northern Iowa (5-1).  Head Coach Todd Lickliter was forced to miss last Saturday's game due to a medical procedure and his status for Tuesday's game is questionable. Both Iowa and Northern Iowa are coming off victories. The Hawkeyes dropped Prairie View A&M (80-51), while the Panthers won at Iowa State (63-60).

Series History:
Iowa leads, 32-7
