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.


Rutgers Scarlet Knights (9-13, 3-6) at Memphis Tigers (16-5, 6-3), 7 p.m. (CBS SN)

The Tigers, who were routed in the second half at SMU on Saturday afternoon, should be able to rebound back at the FedEx Forum tonight against the struggling Scarlet Knights. This will be Memphis' only AAC game this week, as they welcome Gonzaga for ESPN's showcase game on Saturday night.


Maryland Terrapins (13-9, 5-4) at North Carolina Tar Heels (14-7, 4-4), 8 p.m. (ACC Network Regional*/ESPN3)
Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets (12-10, 3-6) at Clemson Tigers (14-6, 5-3), 8 p.m. (ACC Network Regional*/ESPN3)
Wake Forest Demon Deacons (14-8, 4-5) at Duke Blue Devils (17-5, 6-3), 9 p.m. (ESPNU)

Five of the six ACC teams in action tonight are in the NCAA picture with Maryland, Clemson, and Wake needing victories a lot more than Duke and UNC do. Road wins for the Terps and Demon Deacons would be particularly helpful for their respective causes.

Big 12

Kansas Jayhawks (16-5, 7-1) at Baylor Bears (14-7, 2-6), 7 p.m. (ESPN2)
Texas Longhorns (17-4, 6-2) at TCU Horned Frogs (9-11, 0-8), 8 p.m. (Big 12 Network*/ESPN3)

The Bears will look to build on Saturday's impressive and necessary win at Oklahoma St. Cowboys, while the Jayhawks hope to avoid a true Big 12 losing streak. Kansas' conquerors from the weekend, Texas, heads to Fort Worth, where they'll attempt to avoid a truly awful loss.

Big East

St. John's Red Storm (13-9, 3-6) at Providence Friars (16-6, 6-3), 7 p.m. (FS1)
Butler Bulldogs (12-9, 2-7) at Marquette Golden Eagles (12-10, 4-5), 9 p.m. (FS1)

A pair of rematches are on tap, with only one projected NCAA squad involved. That's the Friars, who will hope to defeat the Red Storm at home without the need for multiple overtimes. Meanwhile, the Golden Eagles will look to avenge their bad overtime loss to the Bulldogs at Hinkle.

Big Ten

Ohio State Buckeyes (17-5, 4-5) at Iowa Hawkeyes (17-5, 6-3), 7 p.m. (ESPN)
Wisconsin Badgers (17-5, 4-5) at Illinois Fighting Illini (13-9, 2-7), 9 p.m. (BTN)

The Buckeyes will look to shut down the Hawkeyes and pick up their second Big Ten road win in a row. It's the first of two big contests for Iowa's title hopes, as Michigan visits on Saturday. In Champaign, the Fighting Illini will attempt to snap a seven-game skid against a Badger team that's dropped two in a row and five of its last six.


Mississippi Rebels (15-6, 6-2) at Kentucky Wildcats (16-5, 6-2), 7 p.m. (ESPNU)
Missouri Tigers (16-5, 4-4) at Florida Gators (19-2, 8-0), 9 p.m. (ESPN)

The majority of the SEC's bid contenders get their midweek games out of the way early this week. First, the Wildcats will look to shut down Marshall Henderson and break their second-place tie with the Rebels. Then, highly-touted forward Chris Walker makes his long-delayed debut for the Gators, who play their third game in the span of six days against a Tiger team that's in dire need of a quality road win.


CAA: James Madison Dukes (8-14, 3-5) at Towson Tigers (14-8, 5-2), 7 p.m. (CSN*)
AmEast: Stony Brook Seawolves (16-7, 8-1) at Binghamton Bearcats (4-18, 1-8), 7 p.m. (ESPN3)
MAC: Miami (Ohio) RedHawks (9-10, 5-3) at Northern Illinois Huskies (9-11, 3-5), 7 p.m. (TWCS*/ESPN3)
Big South: Winthrop Eagles (10-10, 4-4) at Liberty Flames (9-14, 3-5), 7 p.m. (Flames Sports Network/MASN2/ESPN3)
MVC: Southern Illinois Salukis (8-15, 4-6) at Drake Bulldogs (12-10, 3-7), 8 p.m. (MC-22/WSIU/ESPN3)
Patriot: Holy Cross Crusaders (12-10, 6-4) at Colgate Raiders (8-13, 2-8), 9 p.m. (CBS SN)

Tonight's mid-major schedule lacks any marquee matchups, though Stony Brook will look to win at woeful Binghamton to stay in at least a tie for first in the America East.
