College Basketball Viewer's Guide For November 13

New, 2 comments

Since it's a November Saturday, college basketball takes a back seat to football, and TV options are limited. There are only two games that will receive a decent level of TV coverage on the second official day of the season.

North Florida at Pittsburgh, 4 p.m. ET (Big East Network/ESPN3): The Panthers already have two wins under their belt thanks to their participation in the Coaches vs. Cancer Classic. On the other hand, this will be the second road game in two nights for the Ospreys--they lost by 20 at Florida State last night. Second year coach Matt Driscoll is running UNF through a non-conference gauntlet. The Ospreys will also visit Wyoming, Missouri, Purdue, Texas, Maryland, and Kansas State before Atlantic Sun play begins. Please note that this game won't appear on ESPN3 (probably because of football-related bandwidth issues). Update: A check of ESPN3 shows this game will be streamed there.

Southern Illinois at Illinois, 8 p.m. ET (Big Ten Network): It's Bruce Weber versus the team that launched his career into the stratosphere. A win over the Fighting Illini would be a major boost for a Saluki program that's struggled since reaching the Sweet Sixteen in 2007. However, an upset is going to be a tough ask, since Illinois looked terrific in its first two contests.

For more information about games that will be aired locally, like Marian at Butler, Vermont at Siena, and Oakland at Evansville, visit Matt Sarz's College Sports on TV site.

However, the bulk of today's action will take place without the presence of TV cameras. You may want to follow these games via the Web, Internet radio, or Twitter.

  • Mount St. Mary's at Dayton, 2 p.m. ET
  • Sacred Heart vs. Fairfield (at the Mohegan Sun), 4 p.m. ET
  • Harvard at George Mason, 4 p.m. ET
  • St. Peter's at Robert Morris, 4 p.m. ET
  • Montana at Nevada, 5 p.m. ET
  • College of Charleston at Holy Cross, 7 p.m. ET
  • San Diego State at Long Beach State, 7 p.m. ET
  • Weber State at Utah State, 9 p.m. ET
  • Detroit at New Mexico, 9:30 p.m. ET
