Your Saturday College Basketball Open Thread: 1/2/16


Butler's in the biggest game of the day, so of course we're going with a picture of Blue.

Here's the crazy thing about today: ESPN's running four bowl games from essentially 11am straight through to midnight.  There should be MORE basketball than what's on this list of nationally televised games.

THIRTY-SIX nationally televised games for you today!  Fifteen games with at least one ranked team playing, and three games that will be contested between two ranked opponents: #9 Butler at #6 Xavier, #23 Baylor at #2 Kansas, and #11 Iowa State at #3 Oklahoma.

It's a great day for Big East fans and Big Ten fans, as FS1 and Big Ten Network are running marathons of those two conferences all day long.  If you find more games on a local broadcast near you that's a total killer, be sure to tell everyone how to watch it in the comments section!
