College Hoops Viewing Guide: January 14, 2014

There are 16 Division I games scheduled for this Tuesday. All but one is available on TV or via streaming. That's not too shabby.

All TV info is courtesy Matt's College Sports on TV site. He has many more games listed, particularly ones broadcast only on local channels and in-house cable sports/local interest channels that are not widely available nationwide. You'll also want to check out his listings for information on which conference 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.


Temple Owls (5-9, 0-4) at Cincinnati Bearcats (15-2, 4-0), 9 p.m. (CBS SN)

The Bearcats should have little trouble with the struggling Owls at the Shoe.


VCU Rams (13-3, 1-0) at George Washington Colonials (13-3, 1-1), 7 p.m. (CBS SN)

The Colonials, one of the last four teams in this week's bracket, could certainly use another quality win. I don't think the Rams, with hopes of a higher seed than the no. 8 they currently hold, will be in the mood to cooperate.


Pittsburgh Panthers (15-1, 3-0) at Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets (10-6, 1-2), 9 p.m. (ESPNU)

Pitt looks to keep pace with Syracuse atop the ACC, while the Yellow Jackets can get to .500 in the league. Tech impressed for much of its Saturday win over Notre Dame at McCamish.

Last night: Duke held off a furious Virginia rally to get back to even in the conference, while Syracuse got a tougher fight than was expected at Boston College, before pulling away late.

Big 12

Oklahoma Sooners (13-3, 2-1) at Kansas State Wildcats (12-4, 2-1), 7 p.m. (ESPN2)

On Saturday, these two experienced diametrically-opposed results. The Sooners knocked Iowa State from the ranks of the unbeaten, while the Wildcats were destroyed by Kansas in Lawrence. Honestly, K-State needs to confidence boost more at this point.

Last night: Kansas handed Iowa State its second consecutive defeat, while firmly establishing itself as the Big 12 favorite. Earlier, Texas won at West Virginia, the Mountaineers second home defeat in three days.

Big East

St. John's Red Storm (9-6, 0-3) at DePaul Blue Demons (9-8, 1-3), 7 p.m. (FS1)
Butler Bulldogs (10-6, 0-4) at Creighton Bluejays (14-2, 4-0), 9 p.m. (FS1)

In Rosemont, the Blue Demons can match their 2012-13 conference win total with a victory over the Johnnies. Meanwhile, in Omaha, the Bluejays will look to keep winning before their showdown with Villanova in Philly on Monday night, while keeping Butler winless in the league in the process.

Big Ten

Wisconsin Badgers (16-0, 3-0) at Indiana Hoosiers (11-5, 1-2), 7 p.m. (ESPN)
Penn State Nittany Lions (9-8, 0-4) at Michigan Wolverines (11-4, 3-0), 8 p.m. (BTN)

Tonight, it's Indiana's turn to attempt to stop Wisconsin's unbeaten run, though the Hoosiers likely don't have the scoring or defense to get the job done. Meanwhile, Michigan looks to pick up a somewhat unexpected sixth win in a row since Mitch McGary was lost due to back surgery.

Mountain West

Boise State Broncos (11-5, 1-2) at Nevada Wolf Pack (9-8, 4-0), 10 p.m. (MWN, streaming directly at SB Nation's Mountain West Connection)

The Broncos look to snap a two-game skid in Reno, where the Wolf Pack are proving to be a very tough out in Mountain West play. If Boise State wants to stay in the at-large conversation, it needs to win at Lawlor tonight.


Georgia Bulldogs (8-6, 2-0) at Florida Gators (13-2, 2-0), 7 p.m. (ESPNU)
Kentucky Wildcats (12-3, 2-0) at Arkansas Razorbacks (11-4, 0-2), 9 p.m. (ESPN)

In Gainesville, the Gators will look to avoid the upset bug the Bulldogs have been spreading early in SEC play, a task that will be more difficult without the injured Casey Prather. Later, the team Florida somehow defeated on Saturday, Arkansas, will look to start building another home win streak against a Kentucky team that has split its two true road games so far this season.


CAA: Towson Tigers (10-6, 1-0) at Drexel Dragons (9-6, 1-1), 7 p.m. (CSN Mid-Atlantic Plus/NE/Comcast Network/CSS/SNY*)
Big South: Campbell Fighting Camels (8-9, 2-0) at Liberty Flames (7-10, 1-1), 7 p.m. (Flames Sports Network/MASN/ESPN3)
MAC: Western Michigan Broncos (9-5, 2-0) at Eastern Michigan Eagles (9-6, 1-1), 7 p.m. (TWCS*/ESPN3)
MVC: Bradley Braves (6-11, 1-3) at Wichita State Shockers (17-0, 4-0), 8 p.m. ET (Cox Kansas/WAOE/ESPN3)

In tonight's televised mid-major matchups, the highlight is obviously Wichita State's quest to remain unbeaten. However, the other three matchups each feature a team that's trying to keep pace in their respective league races. Towson is a half-game behind Delaware in the CAA; Campbell is tied with Radford in the Big South; and Western Michigan is one of three MAC unbeatens early on.
