The College Insider Tournament will resume Tuesday night, with a trio of quarterfinal games highlighting the action. At 7 p.m. ET a pair of matchups will tip off, with Loyola (MD) facing East Carolina and Evansville visiting Canisius, while at 8 p.m. ET Bradley faces Northern Iowa.

In the first matchup of the evening, the Loyola Greyhounds will look to pick up victory No. 24 of the season, when they travel to take on East Carolina. For Loyola, the key to the game will be their ability to slow down Pirates guard Maurice Kemp. The senior has been red-hot of late, scoring at least 20 points in each of East Carolina's last six games.

Next up, Evansville travels to Canisius in a battle of two teams looking for their 21st win of the season.

The Aces (who hold two regular season wins over Sweet 16 participant Wichita State) will rely on the sweet shooting of Colt Ryan, who averaged 19.8 points per game this season. Ryan has totaled 47 points in a pair of CIT games thus far.

And finally the action will wrap up with an 8 p.m. ET tipoff in Cedar Falls, Iowa, where the Northern Iowa Panthers host Bradley.

Each team will take a different approach to victory Tuesday night, with Bradley relying heavily on guard Walt Lemon Jr., a 15.4 point per game scorer this season. Northern Iowa will counter with a more balanced attack, as four Panthers finished the year averaging double figures in scoring.
