Pittsburgh Panthers (12-11, 1-9) at Boston College Eagles (9-15, 2-9), 7 p.m. (ACC RSNs/ESPN3)
Virginia Tech Hokies (16-6, 5-5) at Miami Hurricanes (15-7, 5-5), 9 p.m. (ACC RSNs/ESPN3)

The Seminoles will look to treat the Wolfpack the same way they treated Clemson on Sunday afternoon. Later in the evening, the Hokies and Hurricanes will play the first of their two meetings this year, with both being potentially important for the tournament hopes of each. As for Pitt and BC, that’s a potential ACC Tournament Tuesday preview.

American Athletic

USF Bulls (6-16, 0-11) at UConn Huskies (10-12, 5-5), 7 p.m. (CBSSN)
Houston Cougars (16-7, 7-4) at Tulane Green Wave (4-19, 1-10), 8 p.m. (ESPN News)
UCF Knights (15-8, 6-5) at No. 11 Cincinnati Bearcats (21-2, 10-0), 9 p.m. (ESPNU)

The big attraction here is Cincinnati’s attempt to stay perfect in conference play. If the Knights fail tonight, they’ll get another chance at home on February 26th.

Atlantic 10

Saint Louis Billikens (8-15, 3-7) at St. Bonaventure Bonnies (14-8, 6-4), 7 p.m. (Spectrum Sports NY/FS Midwest/A 10 on Facebook Live)
George Mason Patriots (15-8, 5-5) at Davidson Wildcats (12-9, 5-5), 7 p.m. (ASN)
VCU Rams (18-5, 8-2) at George Washington Colonials (12-11, 4-6), 9 p.m. (CBSSN)

VCU needs to win to keep pace with Dayton at the top of the standings — the Rams stomped the Colonials by 30 in Richmond on January 11th. As for the rest of the games on the lineup, only seeding for Pittsburgh will be on the line.

Big 12

No. 6 Baylor Bears (20-3, 7-3) at Oklahoma State Cowboys (15-8, 4-6), 7 p.m. (ESPNU)
No. 13 West Virginia Mountaineers (18-5, 6-4) at Oklahoma Sooners (8-14, 2-8), 9 p.m. (ESPN2)

After knocking off West Virginia in Morgantown, the Cowboys will look to win their sixth straight by toppling the Bears, who have dropped two in a row. Baylor won the pair’s first meeting in Waco by just four back on January 7th. In the nightcap, the Sooners are going for a surprising sweep of the Mountaineers. Remember that OU won in OT in Morgantown on January 18th. Of course, Lon Kruger’s team has dropped five straight since.

Big East

DePaul Blue Demons (8-15, 1-9) at No. 24 Xavier Musketeers (17-6, 7-3), 6:30 p.m. (FS1)
Providence Friars (14-10, 4-7) at Seton Hall Pirates (14-8, 4-6), 8:30 p.m. (FS1)

Expect the Musketeers to extend their winning streak to four, as they play the Blue Demons for the first time this season. Meanwhile, the Friars will look to hand the Pirates another costly defeat. Providence topped the Hall by a 65-61 score at the Dunk back on January 14th.

Big Ten

Rutgers Scarlet Knights (13-11, 2-9) at Ohio State Buckeyes (14-10, 4-7), 7 p.m. (BTN)
Iowa Hawkeyes (14-10, 6-5) at Minnesota Golden Gophers (16-7, 4-6), 9 p.m. (BTN)

Yes, the Hawkeyes are ahead of the Golden Gophers in the Big Ten standings. That’s the joy of unbalanced schedules. Minnesota finally snapped its five-game skid by defeating Illinois on Saturday, but getting off track wouldn’t do Richard Pitino’s squad much good. Ohio State, meanwhile, is slowly getting back into the picture, but a loss to Rutgers would undo the goodwill the Buckeyes earned by beating Michigan on Saturday.

Pac-12

Stanford Cardinal (12-11, 4-7) at No. 9 Arizona Wildcats (21-3, 10-1), 11 p.m. (FS1)
California Golden Bears (17-6, 8-3) at Arizona State Sun Devils (11-13, 4-7), 11 p.m. (ESPNU)

Arizona and Cal will try not to look ahead to their Saturday meeting. The Wildcats trucked Stanford by a 91-52 score on the Farm back on New Year’s Day, while the Golden Bears were impressive in dispatching the Sun Devils by 16 in the first hours of 2017.

SEC

Ole Miss Rebels (14-9, 5-5) at Tennessee Volunteers (13-10, 5-5), 6:30 p.m. (SECN)
Missouri Tigers (6-16, 1-9) at Texas A&M Aggies (12-10, 4-6), 8:30 p.m. (SECN)

The Volunteers must rebound from their Saturday loss at Mississippi State to stay in Friday’s projection. However, the Rebels are looking for a season sweep, having won by 11 back on January 17th.
