Your New Year’s Day 2017 College Basketball Open Thread & Viewing Guide!

NFL, SchmeNFL. New Year’s Day is sneaky loaded with college basketball on TV.

It’s not a loaded day of hoops by any stretch of the imagination, but for a day that could potentially be dominated by Week 17 of the NFL, there’s a lot of hoops on the TV to occupy your brain as you recover from last night’s festivities.

They’re not super high quality games, as there’s only three ranked teams in action. One of them is in the Big East, though, and there’s three total Big East games on the docket. Minnesota visiting Purdue is a pretty important game for the Gophers after letting Michigan State steal one from them last week.

There’s also four Missouri Valley games on ESPN3 if you need something to wet your whistle, and if you’re one of those lucky jamokes that gets Pac12 Networks, #18 Arizona visits Stanford tonight.

All times Central.
