Your College Basketball Saturday Viewing Guide: March 3, 2018

One final Saturday for the regular season....

This seems like a slightly reduced schedule of basketball on national television today, particularly for the final Saturday of the regular season.

I suspect this can be blamed on the Big Ten. After all, they have just two games on today, both on CBS. Sure, they’re the semifinals of The Rutgers Invitational, but that’s it. The other 10 teams are now idle, so there’s no games on Big Ten Network.

Still, there’s 14 games on with at least one ranked team, so that’s pretty good. The main event of the day is Duke vs North Carolina, which has both teams ranked in the top 10. Even with that being the case, the game still isn’t for the ACC regular season title, as Virginia has already locked that up by a looooong stretch.

There’s an awful lot of games that could have a benefit to Marquette’s postseason hopes, so listing them would be a little bit silly. Run over and check out the T-Rank Rooting Guide for the full list. If you want to only talk about the Big East tournament seeding, go check out our article that hammers down what benefits Marquette the most.

Here’s the lineup for the day! Have fun!
