College Hoops Viewing Guide: March 3, 2014

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

The first conference tournament action of this season will be streaming tonight, but there are plenty of late-season power conference games of intrigue on Monday night's slate.

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.


Notre Dame Fighting Irish (15-15, 6-11) at North Carolina Tar Heels (22-7, 12-4), 7 p.m. (ESPN)
N.C. State Wolfpack (17-12, 7-9) at Pittsburgh Panthers (22-7, 10-6), 9 p.m. (ESPNU)

The Tar Heels will look to complete a sweep of the mediocre Irish, as they already claimed a 73-62 win in South Bend on February 8th. Meanwhile, Pitt's position in the field, increasingly precarious, would become ever more shaky with a loss against the Wolfpack, a team with bubble hopes of its own.

Big East

Xavier Musketeers (20-9, 10-6) at Seton Hall Pirates (14-11, 5-11), 7 p.m. (FS1)

Surprisingly, the Musketeers lost to the Pirates in Cincinnati by eight on February 1st -- the middle game of a three-game skid that damaged their previously decent position. Tonight, they'll look to grab a third consecutive win just before league-leader Villanova comes calling on Thursday night.

Big 12

Kansas State Wildcats (20-9, 10-6) at Oklahoma State Cowboys (19-10, 7-9), 7 p.m. (ESPN)

On Saturday, this pair put themselves in far better position by picking up quality wins -- the Wildcats over Iowa State and the Cowboys over Kansas. However, only one can be successful tonight. K-State picked up a three-point win over the Pokes on the first night of league play, all the way back in early January.


Savannah State Tigers (11-17, 9-5) at N.C. Central Eagles (23-5, 13-1), 7 p.m. (ESPNU)

The Eagles can lock up the top seed in the MEAC Tournament with a win over Horace Broadnax's Tigers.

Patriot League First Round

(Both games will be streamed on Patriot League Network, available directly at SB Nation's Mid-Major Madness)

No. 10 Navy Midshipmen (9-20, 4-14) at No. 7 Colgate Raiders (12-17, 6-12), 7 p.m.
No. 9 Lafayette Leopards (10-19, 6-12) at No. 8 Loyola, Md. Greyhounds (11-18, 6-12), 7:30 p.m.

The Championship Fortnight begins this evening with a pair of Patriot League Opening Round games. Fittingly each pair split its regular season meetings with the home team being victorious on each occasion.
