College Hoops Viewing Guide For Saturday, November 19, 2016

It’s football season still, so you’ll be challenged a bit to watch today’s best games.

NCAA Basketball: Dartmouth at Rhode Island Brian Fluharty-USA TODAY Sports

This list of games is not exhaustive by design. For a full schedule and more specific information about coverage—particularly for ACC RSN, ASN, CSN, and FSN games—visit Matt’s College Sports on TV Website.

If you’re only able to listen to tonight, check out TuneIn’s college basketball lineup.

All times are Eastern, adjust accordingly.

Hall Of Fame Tip-Off Semifinals (Primer)

ESPN3 will stream all four games today.

Naismith Bracket

Duke Blue Devils (ACC) (2-1)
Penn State Nittany Lions (Big Ten) (2-1)
12:30 p.m.
Penn St
Cincinnati Bearcats (American) (2-0)
Rhode Island Rams (A 10) (3-0)
approx. 3 p.m.

Even though both Duke and Penn State boast identical 2-1 marks, it would be an earth-shaking upset if the Nittany Lions (whose loss came at the hands of Albany, not Kansas) reached tomorrow afternoon’s championship game, which will thankfully appear on actual television. The second game of the doubleheader, on the other hand, might be the day’s most compelling game (its main competition involves another Southwestern Ohio squad). You can imagine that Rhode Island will be particularly motivated after last season’s injury-affected campaign. But Cincinnati, looking typically stout on the defensive end, will provide a major challenge for the Rams.

Springfield Bracket

Since the Albany Great Danes (2-1) are already scheduled to host the Marist Red Foxes (0-3) on December 7th, the four visiting teams in this event will play a showcase format tonight and tomorrow evening. To start tonight’s doubleheader, the Red Foxes will take on the Brown Bears (1-2) at 5:30 p.m., with the Great Danes’ showdown with the Grand Canyon Antelopes (0-2) set to tip at around 8 p.m.

U.S. Virgin Islands Paradise Jam Consolation (Primer) will stream both of today’s games ($).

Loyola Chicago
Loyola (Chicago) Ramblers (MVC) (3-1)
Oral Roberts Golden Eagles (Summit) (1-2)
3:30 p.m.
Montana Grizzlies (Big Sky) (0-3)
Washington State Cougars (Pac-12) (2-1)
approx. 6 p.m.

Of the four teams playing on Saturday in St. Thomas, Oral Roberts, which took Ole Miss to overtime in Friday’s second game, and winless Montana, which gave N.C. State a rough first half, looked the best in the quarterfinals. Friday’s four winners play tomorrow night on CBSSN.

Non-Tournament Action Of Note

With football dominating today’s TV schedule, the rest of today’s action is a bit underwhelming, but there are two exceptions.

Saint Mary’s Gaels (2-0) at Dayton Flyers (2-0), 2 p.m. (FS Ohio/FCS Pacific)

Considering the rest of the Gaels’ non-conference schedule, they kind of need to grab a win over a Flyer squad whose frontcourt depth will be challenged with Kendall Pollard and Josh Cunningham both injured.

Arkansas State Red Wolves (2-1) at Army West Point Black Knights (1-1) (Maui Jim Maui Invitational on the Mainland), 6 p.m. (Patriot League Network)

So you beat Georgetown on Thursday night, Red Wolves. Now, can you win a pair of games during a weekend in West Point?
