Best Weekend to Watch College Basketball
This weekend will be filled with college basketball action. Here are the games to watch:
No. 2 Florida at Ole Miss, Sat. 12:00 p.m.
Will this be the Gators’ downfall? It’s the last chance for Ole Miss to do something that gets them in position to be an at-large team. If Florida plays the way they did against Auburn, it just might happen.
No. 11 Louisville at No. 7 Cincinnati, Sat. 12:00 p.m.
In Louisville’s last five games of the season, they play at Cincinnati, at SMU, at Memphis and at home against UConn. The Cardinals have improved since earlier this season, but they’ve done so by beating up on lesser competition.
No. 16 Wisconsin at No. 15 Iowa, Sat. 12:00 p.m.
The Badgers seem to have straightened things out in recent weeks, which makes this game even more important.
LSU at No. 18 Kentucky, Sat. 4:00 p.m.
The last time these two got together, LSU tossed Kentucky around so it will be interesting to see how the Wildcats respond at home.
No. 1 Syracuse at No. 5 Duke, Sat. 7:00 p.m
This game has a lot of hype surrounding it. Three weeks ago, the Orange and the Blue Devils played the best game of the season and the rematch was supposed to be between an explosive Duke team and an undefeated Syracuse team. But now, the Orange have a loss on their back, courtesy of Boston College.
No. 19 Texas at No. 8 Kansas, Sat. 7:30 p.m.
Texas might be the team to beat Kansas because of the size that they have along their front line.
No. 4 Arizona at Colorado, Sat. 9:00 p.m.
Towards the end of 2013, this looked like it was going to be the best game of the Pac-12 season. But, that was before ACL injuries to Spencer Dinwiddie and Brandon Ashley.
No. 13 Michigan State at No. 20 Michigan, Sun. 12:00 p.m.
Both teams are in first place in the Big Ten and Michigan State is finally starting to get healthy again. The Wolverines, who won the first matchup, have to find a way to get more involved in ball-screen action as they head into the final weeks of the season.
