Hey, remember all that great basketball from yesterday?

Well, those games were part of tournaments that continue today! WOO MORE BASKETBALL!

As far as nationally televised games go, the highlight of the day has to be #7 Florida facing off with #17 Gonzaga in the PK80 tournament in Portland. However, due to ESPN’s TV choices, #2 Arizona vs #18 Purdue has been shunted to ESPN3/WatchESPN today. The Worldwide Leader had predetermined that the seventh place game at Battle 4 Atlantis was not going to be on a broadcast channel, and, well, both the Wildcats and the Boilermakers lost their first two games and there they are. It’s probably going to be a really good game! It’s just not on TV. Shoutout to everyone with a smart TV that can turn on WatchESPN just as easily as they can turn on ESPN2.

For you Big East fans out there, St. John’s kicks things off at 10am Central against Missouri, plus there’s #5 Villanova, Butler, #15 Xavier, DePaul, and #20 Seton Hall in action today. That’s a pretty full slate!

And hey, if you need a break from hoops for a moment, there’s 12 college football games on national television today, including Miami trying to stay undefeated against Pitt at 11am!

Here’s the schedule for the day.
