College Hoops Viewing Guide For February 27, 2017

It’s the final Big Monday of the season and also the first night of the Championship Fortnight.

NCAA Basketball: Virginia at North Carolina Rob Kinnan-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 today, check out TuneIn’s college basketball lineup.

All times are Eastern, adjust accordingly.

ACC

North Carolina Tar Heels (25-5, 13-3) at Virginia Cavaliers (19-9, 9-7), 7 p.m. (ESPN)
Miami Hurricanes (20-8, 10-6) at Virginia Tech Hokies (20-8, 9-7), 9 p.m. (ESPNU)

Back on February 18th, the Tar Heels routed the Cavaliers by 24, with UVa only scoring 41, in an ESPN Saturday Night Showcase game. Virginia, which snapped a four-game skid by handing North Carolina State Wolfpack on Saturday, will naturally want revenge to boost what’s becoming a falling seed. Miami, meanwhile, heads to Blacksburg aiming to complete a season sweep of the Hokies, a squad that could use another decent win to help its own cause.

Big 12

West Virginia Mountaineers (23-6, 11-5) at Baylor Bears (23-6, 10-6), 7 p.m. (ESPNU)
Oklahoma Sooners (10-18, 4-12) at Kansas Jayhawks (26-3, 14-2), 9 p.m. (ESPN)

Yes, ESPNU might have the more attractive options in both windows tonight. Baylor slipped to fourth in the Big 12 after its Saturday loss at Iowa State Cyclones, and West Virginia pounded them by 21 in Morgantown back on January 10th. Another loss would all but assure the Bears finish fourth, which would set up a potential Big 12 semifinal matchup with Kansas. Speaking of the Jayhawks, they host a poor Sooner team, which should free you up to watch Miami-Virginia Tech.

Atlantic Sun Quarterfinals

ESPN3 will stream all four games.

Game 1: No. 8 Stetson Hatters (11-20, 3-11) at No. 1 FGCU Eagles (23-7, 12-2), 7 p.m.
The Eagles swept the season series.
Game 2: No. 5 Kennesaw State Fighting Owls (13-17, 7-7) at No. 4 USC Upstate Spartans (17-14, 7-7), 7 p.m.
The pair split the season series with each winning at home.
Game 3: No. 6 Jacksonville Dolphins (17-14, 5-9) at No. 3 UNF Ospreys (13-18, 8-6), 7 p.m.
The Ospreys swept the season series.
Game 4: No. 7 NJIT Highlanders (11-19, 3-11) at No. 2 Lipscomb Bisons (19-12, 11-3), 8 p.m. (ESPN3)
The Bisons swept the season series.

The ASUN’s field will be halved tonight, with all four home teams expected to advance based on the season’s results. Semifinals are set for Thursday night.

Elsewhere

ETSU Buccaneers (24-6, 14-3 SoCon) at UNC Greensboro Spartans (22-8, 13-4), 7 p.m. (ESPN3)
Troy Trojans (16-13, 8-7 Sun Belt) at UT Arlington Mavericks (22-6, 12-3), 8 p.m. (Spectrum Sports Texas)
Georgia State Panthers (18-10, 11-5 Sun Belt) at Arkansas State Red Wolves (19-9, 10-5), 8 p.m. (ESPN3)
Georgia Southern Eagles (18-11, 11-5 Sun Belt) at Little Rock Trojans (13-15, 4-11), 9 p.m. (ASN/ESPN3)

ETSU can wrap up the top seed in the Southern Conference Tournament by winning at UNCG, which won’t be easy since the Spartans are tied in the loss column with idle Furman Paladins. In the Sun Belt, UT Arlington can clinch at least a tie for the conference crown by defeating Troy at home, while the three five-loss teams in action all need wins to keep pace.
