Live Blog: Iona College vs. Boston University

Note: Boston University junior guard Corey Lowe sprained his right ankle (the same one he turned two games prior) in the second half and left the gym on crutches. The average recovery time for a sprained ankle is 2-3 weeks, meaning it's a toss-up as to whether Lowe will be ready for the tournament and doubtful he'll be 100 percent healthy if he does play as he first game is exactly 14 days from now.

This afternoon's game (part of ESPNU's Bracketbusters weekend) between the Iona College Gaels (12-15, 7-9) and Boston University Terriers (14-12, 9-5) is set to tip-off at 1:00 p.m.

Here are the starting lineups:

Iona College Gaels:
03 G Scott Machado
04 F Gary Springer
05 G Rashan Dwight

30 F Jonathan Huffman

Boston University Terriers:

13 G Corey Lowe
21 F Jake O'Brien
