Men’s College Basketball Viewer’s Guide for November 10, 2021

Tonight’s slate is a bit more manageable than Opening Night’s phone book of a schedule, which apparently set a record for most games featuring a Division I team in a single day.

College Basketball 2021-22 Opening Day/Night Viewing Guide

It’s heavy on quantity and light on quality. Even the 2021 version of the venerable Champions Classic doesn’t look so great on paper, if we are to go by last year’s results anyway.

You’re an April fool if you don’t check out today’s show.

2021 NCAA Men’s Tournament Viewing Guide: Elite Eight Tuesday

Don’t turn to CBS looking for tonight’s doubleheader. It’s on TBS instead. Saturday will feature a Southwest Conference reunion with Houston and Baylor advancing to one national semifinal. Might we get an all-Pac-12 matchup in the other? Or will top seeds Gonzaga and Michigan conspire to prevent it?

First-round Friday saw the ninth 15-over-2 upset ever and 13-over-4, 12-over-5, and 11-over-6 wins, along with three overtime games. Usually, when one first-round day is thrilling, the other ends up being a bore. Hopefully, that won’t be the case on this Saturday.
