College Hoops Viewing Guide: February 17, 2014

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Monday night's thin college basketball slate is highlighted by a crucial bubble matchup in the Big 12.

All TV info is courtesy Matt's College Sports on TV site. He has many more games listed, particularly ones broadcast only on local channels and in-house cable sports/local interest channels that are not widely available nationwide. You'll also want to check out his listings for information on which conference regional matchups and CSN, FSN, and Root Sports contests (all games listed in these posts marked with an *) are available on which affiliates.

All times are Eastern.

ACC

North Carolina Tar Heels (17-7, 7-4) at Florida State Seminoles (15-10, 6-7), 7 p.m. (ESPN)

The Seminoles have lost five of their last seven to fall down to the edge of the bubble. However, a victory tonight would help their case, particularly with a trip to Pittsburgh Panthers looming on Sunday. On the opposite side of the court, this will be game two in a four-games-in-eight-days gauntlet for the Tar Heels, who have won six in a row to leave the bubble in the dust.

Big 12

Oklahoma State Cowboys (16-9, 4-8) at Baylor Bears (16-9, 4-8), 9 p.m. (ESPN)

The Cowboys head to Waco looking to snap a six-game skid and avoid a season sweep. The Bears won in Stillwater by six back on February 1st. Scott Drew's team will look to pick up its third win in a row, as they dominated TCU Horned Frogs in Fort Worth and took care of Kansas St. Wildcats after a pair of overtimes on Saturday. That might be enough to get Baylor back into tomorrow's bracket. Keep in mind that this game will be the last one Oklahoma State plays without Marcus Smart. The Pokes are 0-2 without him.

Elsewhere

Delaware Blue Hens (19-7, 11-0 CAA) at Towson Tigers (17-9, 8-3), 7 p.m. (NBCSN)
Stetson Hatters (7-18, 5-8 A-Sun) at USC Upstate Spartans (15-12, 8-6), 7 p.m. (ESPN3)
Mississippi Valley State Delta Devils (8-17, 4-8 SWAC) at Southern U. Jaguars (14-11, 10-2), 7 p.m. (ESPNU)

The most intriguing game out of this trio is Delaware's trip to Towson, where the Blue Hens' perfect CAA run may very well end.
