College Basketball On TV For March 6, 2011: The Regular Season Ends

Today is the beginning of the end, as regular season play concludes with a smattering of ACC, Big Ten, and SEC games. In one week's time, all that will be left will be four conference tournament finals and the unveiling of the field of 68.

The bulk of today's televised games are from conference tournaments, and I have more information on them in my Championship Festival post.

My viewing picks for the final few games of the regular season are after the jump.

Kentucky Wildcats at Tennessee Volunteers, CBS (12 p.m. ET)
The SEC slate concludes with Kentucky attempting to sew up the 2nd seed out of the East, and a first round bye, against a Tennessee team that's looking for one last quality win before they open play in Atlanta on Thursday.
KenPom.com projection: Wildcats 71-68, 67 poss.

Wake Forest Demon Deacons at Boston College Eagles, ACC Network/TheACC.com or ESPN3/Full Court (12 p.m. ET)
The Eagles simply cannot afford to become the Demon Deacons' second ACC victim at this stage of the game.
KenPom.com projection: Eagles 85-65, 67 poss.

Penn St. Nittany Lions at Minnesota Golden Gophers, Big Ten Network (1 p.m. ET)
The Golden Gophers have lost four straight, a run that's knocked them out of contention. The first defeat of that quartet came in State College. So, a loss for the Nittany Lions in this one, even with the game taking place at the Barn, would be a bad one.
KenPom.com projection: Gophers 66-62, 60 poss.

Miami Hurricanes at Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, ACC Network/TheACC.com or ESPN3/Full Court (2:30 p.m. ET)
I have nothing to say about this one, except to watch out for the Hurricanes in Greensboro next week (provided they don't drop this one).
KenPom.com projection: Hurricanes 70-69, 67 poss.

Wisconsin Badgers at Ohio St. Buckeyes, CBS (4 p.m. ET)
The Buckeyes look to avenge their first loss of the season before both teams head to Indianapolis.
KenPom.com projection: Buckeyes 67-60, 57 poss.

Florida St. Seminoles at N.C. State Wolfpack, FSN/Comcast SportsNet (6:15 p.m. ET)
In Wednesday's narrow loss to North Carolina, the Seminoles showed that they can be very competitive without Chris Singleton in the lineup, they can't throw that away by losing in Raleigh in the final FSN ACC Sunday Night Hoops game.
KenPom.com projection: Seminoles 69-68, 69 poss.

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