Your Saturday College Basketball Viewing Guide & Open Thread: 1/7/17

Welcome to 2017, y’all.

NCAA Basketball: Big 12 Conference Tournament-West Virginia vs Oklahoma
The WVU mascot entertains me.

Shoutout to NBC Sports Network as they join the party! They kick off their Atlantic 10 coverage this weekend with a three pack of games, and it’s great to have them on board.

With those games on the slate, there’s THIRTY-ONE games getting a national television broadcast today, including all five Big East games. Impressively, you can say the same thing about the Big 12, although they need to use ESPN News to get that done. Here in Milwaukee with Time Warner Cable, I can say the same thing about all seven games in the SEC as well, but that’s because I get SEC Network for some reason.

Somehow, even with 31 games on national television, we don’t get a game between two ranked teams. There’s 13 ranked teams playing, but they’ve all got unranked opponents. Weird how that works out sometimes.

There’s a ton more stuff out there on a digital broadcast as well, so speak up in the comments if you find something that’s must watch.
