Florida State. Maryland. West Virginia. Providence. Georgetown. Kansas State. All will feature in a bubble-rich Monday night schedule.

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 matchups and CSN, FSN, and Root Sports contests (all games listed in these posts marked with an *) are available on which affiliates.

All times are Eastern.


Miami Hurricanes (11-12, 2-8) at Florida State Seminoles (14-9, 5-6), 7 p.m. (ESPN)
Maryland Terrapins (14-10, 6-5) at Virginia Cavaliers (19-5, 10-1), 9 p.m. (ESPNU)

The Seminoles, who have dropped four of their last five, will likely not be in Tuesday's bracket even if they can stop the difficult Hurricanes in Tallahassee. FSU already defeated Miami in their first meeting in Coral Gables back on January 15th, but the 'Canes are playing far better basketball now, particularly on the defensive end.

Later, Maryland, which handed the 'Noles a tough loss on Saturday, can grab another significant victory for its own profile, if it can solve Virginia's defense down in Charlottesville. The Cavaliers have not allowed an opponent to score more than 69 since giving up 87 to Tennessee back on December 30th.

Big 12

Iowa State Cyclones (18-4, 6-4) at West Virginia Mountaineers (14-10, 6-5), 7 p.m. (ESPNU)
Kansas Jayhawks (18-5, 9-1) at Kansas State Wildcats (16-7, 6-4), 9 p.m. (ESPN)

After getting smoked by Kansas on Saturday, the Mountaineers return to Morgantown, where they'll hope to grab a profile-boosting win against a Cyclone squad they'll become quite familiar with over the next two-and-a-half weeks. West Virginia last lost on its home court when it dropped consecutive contests to Texas and Oklahoma State back in mid-January. They've taken out Texas Tech, Kansas State, and Oklahoma since then. Meanwhile, the Cyclones have only defeated the Red Raiders and Oklahoma State (after three overtimes) on their Big 12 travels.

Big East

Providence Friars (16-8, 6-5) at Georgetown Hoyas (14-9, 5-6), 7 p.m. (FS1)

The Friars have dropped two in a row and three of its last four, which means they're falling down the seed list fairly rapidly. Tonight, they'll visit a Hoya team that's on a three-game surge and will probably be in Tuesday's projection either way. Providence hammered Georgetown at home back on January 8th, grabbing its first Big East win in the process, but we all know how different of a team the Friars are away from the Dunkin' Donuts Center. This will be the fourth road game in five Ed Cooley's team, and they've only managed to win at DePaul in that span.


Hofstra Pride (8-17, 4-6 CAA) at James Madison Dukes (8-16, 3-7), 7 p.m. (CSN*)
Furman Paladins (7-16, 1-9 SoCon) at Western Carolina Catamounts (13-11, 6-3), 7 p.m. (CSS/ESPN3)
Marist Red Foxes (9-14, 6-7 MAAC) at Quinnipiac Bobcats (14-8, 9-4), 7 p.m. (ESPN3)
Western Kentucky Hilltoppers (16-7, 8-2 Sun Belt) at Arkansas State Red Wolves (12-8, 5-4), 8 p.m. (HSSN/WKYU/ESPN3)

There are no overly intriguing mid-major matchups on television tonight, though Quinnipiac and Western Kentucky will try to stay close to their respective league leaders by grabbing wins.
