Your Saturday College Basketball Open Thread!

140 games with 22 getting a national broadcast for everyone to enjoy!

College GameDay is at Rupp Arena for a main event matchup of Missouri and Kentucky. The real main event of the day is obviously the Georgetown-Syracuse game, with New Mexico-Colorado State running a pretty close second. Sadly, it's at exactly the same time. I almost feel bad for ESPN, since they'll be trying to broadcast a NC State-UNC game against both of those two games.

If you're thinking that this schedule of games seems a little thinner than it should be, then you're right. No, I'm not talking about how a majority of the slots are taken up by the yearly Bracket Busters event. No, ESPN is spending four hours of their day broadcasting a NASCAR Nationwide Series race. If you want a real reason why Bracket Busters - an ESPN creation, remember - is ending after this season, that's it right there: ESPN would rather burn off space for two games on a second tier car race than broadcast ANY college basketball at all.

As always, times listed on these games are Central, and if you see a barnburner of a game getting a local broadcast in your neck of the woods, let everyone know in the comments section on how to track it down!
