Saturday's Best

A daily look at the best of the local sports scene ...

-- Central Connecticut and Quinnipiac have developed quite a rivalry in men's basketball over the past decade. Central dominated for so long, but with the two teams vying for second place in the Northeast Conference as the regular season winds down, Saturday's showdown at Detrick Gymnasium in New Britain should be quite intense.

Two of the top players in the league square off as well with Central's Ken Horton and Quinnipiac's Justin Rutty.

Tip-off is 3:30 p.m.

The game can be heard on WQUN-1220, ESPN-1410 and ESPN-1300.

-- Penn plays at Yale in men's basketball. The Bulldogs lost to Ivy League leading Princeton Friday and Penn is down this year, but given the chance to see a game at Lee Amphitheater, one should take advantage of the building built in 1932. Saturday's game is a 7 p.m. tip.

-- The No. 2 UConn women's basketball team plays host to No. 8 Notre Dame at 2 p.m. at Gampel Pavilion in a game that can be seen on CPTV. Notre Dame is 22-4, 11-1 in the Big East.
