Your Saturday College Basketball Viewing Guide & Open Thread: 12/17/16

Pretty big day of hoops here, guys.

NCAA Basketball: Champions Classic-Kentucky vs Michigan State Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports


28 basketball games on national television today! Park your butt on a couch and just let it wash over you, man.

It’s a big day for weird neutral site events. Here’s a probably not complete list of everything happening today: Lone Star Shootout in Houston, Crossroads Classic in Indy, CBS Sports Classic in Vegas, Orange Bowl Classic in Sunrise, FL (which is not Miami and don’t let them tell you it is), and State Farms Chicago Legends.

There’s 12 games with at least one ranked team playing, and there’s three games with two ranked teams squaring off. That includes both halves of the Crossroads Classic with Butler/Indiana and Purdue/Notre Dame.

If you find a barnburner on a digital network, shout it out in the comments so everyone can catch it!
