Your Saturday College Basketball Open Thread: 1/3/15

With the wide majority of college football behind us, we've got lots of college basketball on the airwaves today.

Yep, Baylor in the best game of the day. Go figure, huh?

We aren't completely free of college football, though.  ESPN's running the "Birmingham Bowl," which appears to not have a sponsor, and features the powerhouses of East Carolina and Florida.

ESPN2 is going to waste time today with two hours of SportsCenter in the middle of the afternoon for no apparent reason, too.  I don't know about you, but I sure am glad that my favorite team's chances of getting on national TV aren't tied to these nutbirds.

In any case, we've got 24 games with a national broadcast today, including a battle of two ranked teams when Baylor heads to Oklahoma.  If you see anything that catches your eye that's not on this list, be sure to mention how you're watching it in the comments below.
