College Hoops Viewing Guide: December 10, 2013

It's exam week, which means the college basketball TV pickings are going to be pretty slim for a few days. (Witness FS1 airing Butler's home game against Division III Manchester last night.) However, there is a trio of very good games on tonight. That's a rarity for this particular week in December.

He has many more games listed, and you'll also want to check out his listings for information on which ACC and SEC regional contests and CSN, FSN, and Root Sports games (all games listed in these posts marked with an *) are available on which affiliates.

All times are Eastern.

SEC/Big 12 Challenge

Kansas Jayhawks (6-2) at Florida Gators (6-2), 7 p.m. (ESPN)
Both of these teams are coming off heartbreaking losses, thanks to buzzer-beaters from Colorado and Connecticut, respectively. The Gators look like they will have a point guard for this contest after all, as Scottie Wilbekin and freshman phenom Kasey Hill should both be available after each suffered ankle sprains earlier in the season. I will be in Gainesville for this one.

Evansville Aces (6-3) at Xavier Musketeers (6-3), 7 p.m. (FS1)
The Musketeers, who recently went 0-3 at the Battle 4 Atlantis, need to be careful they don't get caught looking ahead to Saturday's showdown with Cincinnati.

South Dakota State Jackrabbits (4-6) at Minnesota Golden Gophers (8-2), 8 p.m. (BTN)
This is the first of three winnable home games for the Gophers before the start of Big Ten play.

Boise State Broncos (8-0) at Kentucky Wildcats (7-2), 9 p.m. (ESPN)
The unbeaten Broncos hit the road for the second time this season, but Rupp Arena is a completely different environment than New Orleans' Lakefront Arena. The opponent is a step up too, especially since the Wildcats will be motivated after Friday's loss to Baylor in Arlington.

Gonzaga Bulldogs (8-1) at West Virginia Mountaineers (6-3), 9 p.m. (ESPN2)
The Bulldogs blew out the Mountaineers in Spokane in an Old Spice Classic non-bracketed game, and it was a bit of a surprise that the two didn't meet again at Disney World. This season, Gonzaga travels east to take on a WVU team that looks improved over the 2013-14 edition, but which has struggled against quality opposition early on.

Nevada Wolf Pack (4-5) at California Golden Bears (6-3), 11 p.m. (Pac-12 Network)
The Golden Bears have dropped three of their last four, including Friday's loss at UC Santa Barbara. They should have little trouble with a Wolf Pack team that's struggled mightily this year. Saturday's win over UC Davis -- in overtime -- was the only one of Nevada's four triumphs so far to come by more than two points.
