College Basketball - March 6

The most important Saturday of the college basketball season thus far, there are a ton of different things to watch for today.  We'll have game threads for both the women and the men today, playing back-to-back this afternoon: 

SEC Women's Basketball Tournament Semifinals - Duluth, GA

  • #1 Tennessee vs. #5 Vanderbilt - 3:30 PM - ESPNU
  • #2 Kentucky vs. #3 Mississippi State - 6:00 PM - ESPNU

SEC Men's Basketball

The #2 west seed, a first-round bye, and a date with Tennessee on Friday will all go to the winner of Ole Miss & Arkansas.  Vanderbilt plays to improve their seeding, Auburn and Alabama could be an NIT play-in game, and of course, Tennessee and Mississippi State will collide in a huge game tonight.  Florida and Kentucky play Sunday at noon.  Today's schedule:

  • Auburn at Alabama - 1:30 PM - SEC Network
  • South Carolina at #19 Vanderbilt - 2:00 PM - ESPN2
  • Ole Miss at Arkansas - 4:00 PM - SEC Network
  • Georgia at LSU - 5:00 PM - Fox Sports South
  • #13 Tennessee at Mississippi State - 6:00 PM - ESPN

National games of interest/Bubble Watch:

  • #8 West Virginia at #9 Villanova - 12:00 PM - CBS
  • Tulsa at Memphis - 1:00 PM - CBS College Sports Network
  • #1 Syracuse at Louisville - 2:00 PM - ESPN
  • #2 Kansas at Missouri - 2:00 PM - CBS
  • UConn at South Florida - 2:00 PM
  • Notre Dame at Marquette - 2:00 PM
  • #25 Texas at #22 Baylor - 4:00 PM
  • Virginia Tech at Georgia Tech - 4:00 PM - Raycom (in ACC country)
  • North Carolina at #4 Duke - 9:00 PM - ESPN
  • UAB at UTEP - 9:00 PM

As it relates to Tennessee's seeding, I'm not sure the Vols are going to catch either Nova or WVA, so that one's probably just for fun.  But Texas over Baylor (who has an RPI of 10) would help.

Conference Tournament Championship Games

  • Big South:  Coastal Carolina vs. Winthrop - 4:00 PM - ESPN2
  • Atlantic Sun:  ETSU vs. Mercer - 6:00 PM - ESPN2
  • Ohio Valley:  Murray State vs. Morehead State - 8:00 PM - ESPN2
