College Hoops Viewing Guide: February 21, 2014

Scott Kane-USA TODAY Sports

A meeting of two Atlantic 10 bid contenders in Amherst is the showcase game on a light Friday night schedule.

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.

Atlantic 10

VCU Rams (20-6, 8-3) at UMass Minutemen (20-5, 7-4), 7 p.m. (ESPN2)

In their last home game, the Minutemen were stunned by George Mason. A subsequent win at George Washington boosted UMass' case, but defeating VCU, which has only defeated one A 10 bid contender on the road -- Dayton -- would almost assure the team a bid.

Elsewhere

Mercer Bears (21-6, 12-2 A-Sun) at Florida Gulf Coast Eagles (17-10, 11-3), 6 p.m. (ESPNU)
Northern Kentucky Norse (8-19, 4-11 A-Sun) at Lipscomb Bisons (12-14, 7-8), 7 p.m. (CSS/CST/TWCS Ohio)
Manhattan Jaspers (19-6, 12-4 MAAC) at Siena Saints (11-16, 7-9), 7 p.m. (ESPN3)
Iona Gaels (17-8, 14-2 MAAC) at Rider Broncs (13-12, 9-7), 8 p.m. (ESPNU)
Oakland Golden Grizzlies (10-18, 5-8 Horizon) at UIC Flames (5-22, 0-13), 8 p.m. (ESPN3)
Detroit Titans (13-15, 6-7 Horizon) at Wright State Raiders (15-13, 7-6), 10 p.m. (ESPNU)

Far and away, the most intriguing matchup on this list is the first, which may be a preview of the Atlantic Sun's title game. With the tournament shifting from Mercer to the home courts of the higher seeds, this one will go a long way to determining who will have that advantage in a potential final showdown.
