Your College Basketball Saturday Open Thread!

Julius Randle and #11 Kentucky are one half of the best game of the day as they travel to play #18 North Carolina. - Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

IT'S BACK! WALL TO WALL BASKETBALL! SO LONG, STUPID COLLEGE FOOTBALL!

Maybe for a Saturday Open Thread, it's a little bit of a weak schedule of games. But there's 17 games getting a national broadcast, and even more getting a digital broadcast through ESPN3. There's 11 ranked teams in action, including three ranked teams playing road games and two more playing neutral site games in their own state against out of state teams. There's even a game between two ranked teams, as #11 Kentucky travels to Chapel Hill to play #18 North Carolina.

Enjoy the games, and if you've got a local broadcast of something worth watching, be sure to let everyone know in the comments section! All times listed are Central, as always.
