Your Saturday College Basketball Viewing Guide & Open Thread: March 4, 2017

It’s the last Saturday of the regular season and there’s a ton of great basketball to be watched.

NCAA Basketball: West Coast Conference Tournament-Saint Mary's vs Pepperdine
Going with the Saint Mary’s mascot here as the Gaels start a game at 11pm Central time, which is AWESOME.

We’ve got 16 ranked teams in action today as we wrap up the regular season in college basketball. Well, mostly wrap up. The Big Ten and the AAC are insisting on playing regular season game tomorrow for some reason. Weirdos.

Anyway, the big items on the slate are Notre Dame visiting Louisville in the early afternoon, and Duke heading to the Dean Dome to play UNC in the ESPN main event of the evening. Along the way, national TV is going to be carrying the Missouri Valley semifinals, one random MAAC quarterfinal game, two of the WCC’s quarterfinals, and last, but definitely not least, the Ohio Valley championship game. We already lost Belmont, the #1 seed in the OVC, so someone is slightly unexpectedly locking up the first automatic bid to the NCAA tournament tonight. Neat, huh?

If you find something electric on a digital only broadcast, shout it out in the comments so everyone can catch it!
