Wednesday Night TV Preview- 25 February

It's a little quieter tonight than I anticipated, but that doesn't mean there aren't some monstrous matchups on TV.

Connecticut @ Marquette (ESPN, 7 EST) - Every political activist's favorite person goes for win #800. Jim Calhoun's team seeks to hold off the charging Golden Eagles and stay in a first place tie with Louisville. If Marquette wins, they'll join the Cardinals atop the league.

Rutgers @ Notre Dame (ESPNU, 7 EST) - The Irish look for their second straight win. Of their last four, only two are truly winnable (tonight and St. John's on March 6). A road trip to UConn and visit from Villanova fall in between. I don't envy Fred Hill's team this evening.

Kentucky @ South Carolina (Raycom/FS Florida/FS South/Full Court, 7 EST) - Since the Gators and Vols dropped their last games, this one is for first in the SEC East. The Gamecocks are going for the season sweep of the Wildcats.

Dayton @ Rhode Island (local TV only in both markets, 7 EST) - The Rams are a game behind Xavier for the A-10 lead. Dayton and Temple are a half-game out. While the Flyers have a strong case for an at-large, URI will have to win the auto bid.

Virginia Tech @ Clemson (ESPN2, 7:30 EST) - The Hokies lost to the Tigers 86-82 in Blacksburg. They desperately need to break a three-game skid to get back in the conversation.

Navy @ American (CBS CS, 8 EST) - The Eagles clinched a tie for the Patriot League title by beating Holy Cross Saturday. They can wrap up the one seed (and homecourt advantage throughout the conference tournament) by beating the third-placed Middies tonight.

Duke @ Maryland (ESPN, 9 EST) - The Terps look for their second straight huge home win, which would pretty much sew up a bid.

Kansas State @ Missouri (ESPNU, 9 EST) - The Tigers can't be caught looking ahead to their matchup at KU on Sunday. (They also host OU in one week's time.) This is the Wildcats' last chance at a big regular season win.

Mississippi State @ Tennessee (Raycom/FS Florida/FS South/Full Court, 9 EST) - Thanks to their non-league wins, the Vols are in better shape for a bid than the Bulldogs, but UT needs to start winning again.

Texas Tech @ Texas (ESPN2, 9:30 EST) - The Longhorns look to build on their win Saturday night over Oklahoma, and a Pat Knight-less Tech team stands in their way. (OK, so maybe "stands in their way" isn't the right term.)

UNLV @ Utah (the mtn., 10 EST) - BYU beat San Diego State last night, snapping the Aztecs' 10-game home win streak. That sets up a huge game in Provo on Saturday, even if the Utes drop this one. The Rebels need this road win for their resume.

Oklahoma State @ Colorado (FSN Rocky Mtn./Cowboy Sports/Full Court, 10:30 EST) - Well, Baylor failed in their attempt to stay alive last night, while A&M pulled out a close one on the road. Now, it's the Cowboys turn to win a road game against a beatable North Division opponent.
