College Hoops Viewing Guide (Non-Tournament Edition): March 9, 2014

Duane Burleson

The regular season concludes today. After Wisconsin-Nebraska wraps up at about 10 p.m. ET, it's elimination basketball of one form or another until April 7th.

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.

Marquee Games

Virginia Cavaliers (25-5, 16-1 ACC) at Maryland Terrapins (16-14, 8-9 ACC) , 12 p.m. (CBS)

The Cavaliers, in line for a two seed and maybe even a one if they can win the ACC Tournament, will see their positioning take a hit with a late loss in College Park.

Saint Louis Billikens (25-5, 12-3 A 10) at UMass Minutemen (23-6, 10-5), 2 p.m. (CBS SN)

The Billikens head to Amherst looking to end a three-game slide before they head to Brooklyn as the number one seed for the A 10 Tournament.

Syracuse Orange (26-4, 13-4 ACC) at Florida State Seminoles (18-11, 9-8), 2 p.m. (ACC Network*/ESPN3)

I will be in Tallahassee for this one, as the Orange look to get out of their skid and the Seminoles look for one last quality win before heading to Greensboro.

La Salle Explorers (14-15, 6-9 A 10) at St. Joseph's Hawks (21-8, 11-4), 4 p.m. (CBS SN)

The Hawks will look to at least repeat the nine-point win they earned at Tom Gola Arena on February 15th.

Michigan State Spartans (23-7, 12-5 Big Ten) at Ohio State Buckeyes (22-8, 9-8), 4:30 p.m. (CBS)

The Bucks will look to end a two-game slide against a Spartan team they lost to back on January 7th, a defeat that began a 1-5 stretch that helped damaged OSU's seed.

Penn State Nittany Lions (15-15, 6-11 Big Ten) at Minnesota Golden Gophers (18-12, 7-10), 5:15 p.m. (BTN)

It's pretty safe to say that if the Gophers drop this one, they'll need to win out in Indianapolis to make the field.

Boston College Eagles (8-22, 4-13 ACC) at N.C. State Wolfpack (18-12, 8-9), 6 p.m. (ESPNU)

The Wolfpack cannot afford a loss to the Eagles, particularly since they're playing at home after nearly a week off.

Wisconsin Badgers (25-5, 12-5 Big Ten) at Nebraska Cornhuskers (18-11, 10-7), 7:30 p.m. (BTN)

A Cornhusker win would virtually assure them of a bid, and not necessarily in Dayton. The Badgers, meanwhile, have a two seed within their grasp.

Other Viewing Option

Northwestern Wildcats (12-18, 5-12 Big Ten) at Purdue Boilermakers (15-15, 5-12), 12 p.m. (BTN)

This is the only game of the day without any NCAA implications.
