College Basketball On TV For February 4, 2011

I have only two TV picks for you on this Friday, since there are only two games on national TV, but both are worth it, as they're key clashes in the Ivy League and Metro Atlantic.

Harvard Crimson at Princeton Tigers, ESPNU (7 p.m. ET)
This weekend, the Crimson faces its biggest obstacle in the quest for a first-ever Ivy League basketball title, the Princeton-Penn road trip. Tonight's game against the Tigers is the tougher of the pair, as Princeton is a more likely title contender than the Quakers, especially since Harvard hasn't won at Jadwin Gym in 21 years and a day. So, if Tommy Amaker's team can make a little bit of history tonight, they'll be in good position to do so again in early March.
KenPom.com prediction: Tigers 67-66, 64 poss.

Iona Gaels at Fairfield Stags, ESPNU (7 p.m. ET)
The Gaels have dropped three in a row, which means they've fallen into third place, three games back of the Stags. Fairfield sits all alone at the top of the Metro Atlantic at 10-1, thanks to six consecutive wins, and they're two games ahead of second-place St. Peter's. Still, this is a possible MAAC final preview.
KenPom.com prediction: Stags 67-63, 68 poss.

For broadcast information for the rest of Friday's TV contests (and there's only one from the Atlantic Sun), visit Matt Sarz's College Sports on TV site. Another good resource is the schedule page at BB State.

Please share your thoughts about today and tonight's action in the comments, after you sign up for a free SB Nation account, of course.
