Today in the Daily Sports Roundup: The Big East begins its conference tourney, while the Maple Leafs meet the Bruins, and the Lakers play host to the Raptors.

Tipping off on the hardwood . . .

The NBA offers up eight games on Tuesday, with Philadelphia at Indiana, the Clippers at Orlando, Houston at Washington, Miami at Charlotte, Utah at Chicago, Boston at Milwaukee, Sacramento at Portland, and Toronto at the Lakers. The Raptors (32-29 SU, 28-33 ATS) had star forward Chris Bosh back in the lineup on Sunday, but they still lost 114-101 at home to Philadelphia. The Lakers (46-18 SU, 27-35-2 ATS) have lost three straight games, and they were knocked off 96-94 in Orlando on Sunday. Kobe Bryant had 34 points in that loss.

Championship week continues in college basketball on Tuesday with 16 games on the schedule – including the four opening-round matchups in the Big East Tournament at Madison Square Garden (DePaul vs. South Florida, St. John’s vs. Connecticut, Providence vs. Seton Hall, and Rutgers vs. Cincinnati). As well, Butler will take on Wright State in the championship game of the Horizon League tournament on Tuesday at Hinkle Fieldhouse. The Bulldogs are undefeated both at home and in conference play on the season, and they beat the Raiders twice.

Finally, nine games make up the NHL’s schedule for Tuesday, with the Islanders at Philadelphia, Nashville at Atlanta, Calgary at Detroit, Tampa Bay at Montreal, Florida at Minnesota, Vancouver at Colorado, Ottawa at Edmonton, Columbus at Anaheim, and Boston at Toronto. The 29-24-11 Bruins were edged 2-1 in Pittsburgh in their last game on Sunday, while the 20-33-12 Maple Leafs fell 3-1 to the Flyers in their Sunday matchup. The Bruins and Maple Leafs just met last Thursday, with Tim Thomas making 24 saves in a 3-2 Boston home shootout win.
