College Hoops Viewing Guide: February 28, 2014

Friday's limited schedule features Providence in bubble action and a few interesting games featuring mid-majors who could clinch auto bids soon.


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.

Big East

Providence Friars (18-10, 8-7) at Seton Hall Pirates (14-14, 5-10), 7 p.m. (CBS SN)

On New Year's Eve, the Friars picked up a loss they may very well regret, falling to the Pirates after 10 extra minutes. This evening, they'll look to get some revenge and stay afloat. Seton Hall is currently 1-5 in its last six, while Providence has won two of its last three.


Washington State Cougars (9-18, 2-13) at Washington Huskies (15-13, 7-8), 10:30 p.m. (Pac-12 Network)

This one has no NCAA implications, but the Cougars, who won the pair's first meeting in Pullman on February 1st, can earn a season sweep with a shock win in Seattle.


Iona Gaels (19-8, 16-2 MAAC) at Manhattan Jaspers (20-7, 13-5), 7 p.m. (ESPN2)
Campbell Fighting Camels (12-18, 6-9 Big South) at High Point Panthers (15-13, 11-4), 7 p.m. (ESPNU)
ETSU Buccaneers (17-13, 10-7 A-Sun) at USC Upstate Spartans (17-13, 10-7), 7 p.m. (CSS/CSY)
Brown Bears (14-10, 6-4 Ivy) at Penn Quakers (7-16, 4-5), 7:30 p.m (NBCSN)
Canisius Golden Griffins (19-10, 13-5 MAAC) at Rider Broncs (13-14, 9-9), 9 p.m. (ESPNU)

With the first bids slated to go out in just eight days, there are a few contests to watch in this group. The Iona-Manhattan contest is a potential Metro Atlantic final preview, though Canisius, who travels to Rider later in the evening, has a great shot at earning that league's auto bid as well. New Big South leader (and many's preseason favorite) High Point hosts Campbell as it attempts to lock up the top seed in the conference tournament.
