Draymond Green and MSU will get a break this weekend after their games against North Carolina and Duke.

Let's take a quick look at this weekend's Big Ten action (all times are CST):

Friday

12:00 Purdue vs Temple: Puerto Rico Tip-Off Semifinals
The Boilers are coming off of two very close wins: one against High Point at home and Thursday's 91-90 win over Iona in the quarterfinals. Temple is expected to have a solid season this year in the A-10; they took care of Western Michigan on Thursday.

2:30 Northwestern vs Tulsa: Charleston Classic Semifinals
John Shurna scored a career high 37 points in Thursday's win over LSU. Tulsa is coming off a win against Western Kentucky.

5:30 Texas Southern at Michigan St.
After playing North Carolina and Duke to start the season, this game should give the Spartans their first win.

8:00 Jackson St. at Ohio St.
After Ohio State's impressive win against Florida, Jackson St. should not pose much of a challenge.

Saturday

11:00 Penn St. vs Kentucky: Naismith Hall of Fame Tip-Off in Connecticut
Tim Frazier has been playing very well for first year coach Pat Chambers, but beating Kentucky would be a shocking upset.

7:00 Wofford at Wisconin
Wofford looks to top their 2007 win at Purdue by beating the Badgers, but it is highly unlikely.

8:00 Savannah St. at Indiana
The Hoosiers look to continue their early-season dominance at home against the Tigers from the Mid-Eastern Conference.

Sunday

1:00 Rhode Island at Nebraska
Rhode Island started the season with losses against Texas and George Mason. The Huskers are coming off a solid win at USC.

3:00 Iowa vs Creighton in Des Moines
Creighton is the preseason favorite to win the Missouri Valley Conference; it will take a solid performance from Iowa to get a win.

5:00 Arkansas-Little Rock at Michigan St.
The Trojans from the Sun Belt Conference look for a big upset, but it's very unlikely to happen.

4:30 or 7:00 Purdue in the Puerto Rico Tip-Off
Purdue will play either Alabama or Wichita State in the Championship or Consolation Game.

5:00 or 7:30 Northwestern in the Charleston Classic
Northwestern will play the late game if they win on Saturday. The Wildcats will face either Seton Hall or St. Joseph's.
