College Hoops Viewing Guide For Thursday, December 1, 2016

With the ACC/Big Ten Challenge wrapped up for another season, December opens with a relatively light slate.

NCAA Basketball: Iowa State at Gonzaga Jonathan Dyer-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.

Vermont Catamounts (6-2) at South Carolina Gamecocks (6-0), 6:30 p.m. (SEC Network+)

Columbia Lions (3-3) at Seton Hall Pirates (4-2), 7 p.m. (FS1)

The Pirates return home looking to bounce back from a disappointing 1-2 Thanksgiving weekend in Orlando. As for the Lions, they’re 2-1 on the road so far this season, but Seton Hall is a higher-quality squad than either Stony Brook or Quinnipiac (who happened to be the only team SHU defeated last week).

Florida Gators (6-1) at North Florida Ospreys (3-5), 7 p.m. (ESPN3)

Thanks to O’Connell Center renovations, the Gators are making their second trip to UNF Arena this year. UF blew out the Ospreys by a 97-68 score on March 15th in the NIT First Round—and UNF’s offense was far better back then.

Cincinnati Bearcats (5-1) at Iowa State Cyclones (5-1), 9 p.m. (ESPN)

The Cyclones take the floor for the first time since their epic AdvoCare final loss to Gonzaga. Last December, Iowa State left Cincy with an 81-79 win. Look for a similar result tonight, as the guard-heavy Cyclones are likely to be challenged by both the Bearcats’ backcourt and interior presence.

Oregon State Beavers (3-4) at Mississippi State Bulldogs (4-2), 9 p.m. (ESPNU)

The Beavers have lost four in a row against Division I opposition, and with Tres Tinkle out for the foreseeable future with a wrist injury, they’ll be challenged to break that streak in Starkville—even if the Bulldogs haven’t really impressed so far this season.

Stephen F. Austin Lumberjacks (2-2) at Arkansas Razorbacks (4-1), 9 p.m (SEC Network)

Were this last season, the Lumberjacks might have had a chance in Fayetteville, but SFA has only managed to defeat Longwood in its three Division I games so far.
