Southeast Missouri State at Bradley women

7 p.m., Renaissance Coliseum, Peoria

Records: SEMO 0-1, BU 0-0

Series: SEMO leads 2-1

Radio: WIRL AM-1290

Online video stream: ESPN3

Outlook: Bradley opens its third season under coach Andrea Gorski. The Braves bring back seven of their top nine scorers from a 13-18 team. The only newcomer listed as a probable starter for Bradley is point guard Ellisha Davis, a transfer from St. Louis Community College. Southeast Missouri State opened with an 88-53 loss at Mississippi State, last year's national runner-up. Fans bringing a ticket stub from the Bradley men's game on Saturday afternoon — also against SEMO — will receive free admission.

Rend Lake at ICC men

4 p.m., Lorene Ramsey Gymnasium, East Peoria

Records: Rend Lake 1-0, ICC 2-2

Outlook: Illinois Central College plays its first game against a Region 24 opponent. The balanced Cougars have had different leading scorers in each of their four games. Sophomore Ian Milsteadt is ICC's season points leader at 9.8 per game. Rend Lake's only game was a 92-86 victory at Danville Area behind 27 points from freshman guard Jevon Burton. ICC and Rend Lake split two games in 2017-18 and will also play twice this season.

Illinois State at Belmont

7 p.m., Curb Event Center, Nashville, Tenn.

Records: ISU 1-0, Belmont 0-0

Series: First meeting

Radio: WJBC AM-1230 and FM-93.7

Online video stream: ESPN3

Outlook: Illinois State's first road assignment comes against a team picked to win the Ohio Valley Conference. Belmont's roster features 10 newcomers, but the Bruins (24-9 last season) do bring back Dylan Windler (17.3 ppg, 9.3 rp), the OVC Preseason Player of the Year. ISU had lost five consecutive season openers before Tuesday's 74-66 decision over Florida Gulf Coast. Phil Fayne, Milik Yarbrough and newcomer Josh Jefferson each scored 17 points in the win.
