College Basketball NET Viewing Guide For Saturday, February 23, 2019

At the bottom of the page, you’ll find a lineup broken down by telecast window with the group designations in bold to the left of the game. Instead of ordering these by tip time, however, I’ve grouped them by importance.

Reminders of the different groupings:

  • Group 1 (home games): Visitor is ranked 1-30
  • Group 1 (away games): Host is ranked 1-75
  • Group 2 (home games): Visitor is ranked 31-75
  • Group 2 (away games): Host is ranked 76-135
  • Group 3 (home games): Visitor is ranked 76-160
  • Group 3 (away games): Host is ranked 136-240
  • Group 4 (home games): Visitor is ranked 161-353
  • Group 4 (away games): Host is ranked 241-353

All NET numbers are from the NCAA’s website and reflect games played through Thursday, Feb. 21. Records reflect games played through Friday, Feb. 22. All times are Eastern.

Group 1 for both the host and visitor (1/1)

No. 6 Tennessee Volunteers (24-2, 12-1) at No. 16 LSU Tigers (21-5, 11-2), 12 p.m. (ESPN)
No. 2 Virginia Cavaliers (23-2, 11-2) at No. 18 Louisville Cardinals (18-9, 9-5), 12 p.m. (Raycom/TheACC.com/ACC Network Extra)
No. 19 Marquette Golden Eagles (22-4, 11-2) at No. 73 Providence Friars (15-12, 5-9), 12 p.m. (Fox)
No. 20 Auburn Tigers (18-8, 7-6) at No. 5 Kentucky Wildcats (22-4, 11-2), 1:30 p.m. (CBS)
No. 14 Iowa State Cyclones (19-7, 8-5) at No. 41 TCU Horned Frogs (17-9, 5-8), 2 p.m. (ESPN2)
No. 11 Purdue Boilermakers (19-7, 12-3) at No. 46 Nebraska Cornhuskers (15-12, 5-11), 2 p.m. (BTN) Updated tip time
No. 21 Florida State Seminoles (21-5, 9-4) at No. 9 North Carolina Tar Heels (21-5, 11-2), 3:45 p.m. (CBS)
No. 24 Wofford Terriers (23-4, 15-0) at No. 45 Furman Paladins (22-5, 11-4), 4 p.m. (ESPN3)
No. 3 Duke Blue Devils (23-3, 11-2) at No. 42 Syracuse Orange (18-8, 9-4), 6 p.m. (ESPN)
No. 15 Kansas Jayhawks (20-6, 9-4) at No. 10 Texas Tech Red Raiders (21-5, 9-4), 8 p.m. (ESPN)

Marquette-Providence and Purdue-Nebraska look like outliers here, though both favorites must be wary of their hosts, even if their respective at-large hopes are nearly gone. Tennessee-LSU is a vital matchup in the SEC title hunt, particularly with the pair only meeting once in the regular season. Kentucky, which hosts a disappointing Auburn team, could find itself in the driver’s seat with a win and Vol loss. The Kansas-Texas Tech loser will be two losses behind K-State in the Big 12 race, while TCU could really use a sweep of Iowa State for its bubble chances. In the ACC, co-leaders Duke and Virginia both hit the road, with the Blue Devils aiming to avoid a sweep at the hands of Syracuse and the Cavaliers aiming to push Louisville further down its spiral. (They’ll meet again in Charlottesville to close the regular season.) Then there’s the SoCon showdown, where Wofford can wrap up the conference title with a win, while Furman could use a second Group 1 win for its unexpected at-large case.

Group 1 for the visitor only; Group 2 for the host (1/2)

No. 35 Texas Longhorns (15-11, 7-6) at No. 38 Oklahoma Sooners (16-10, 4-9), 12 p.m. (ESPNU)
No. 43 Ohio State Buckeyes (17-9, 7-8) at No. 23 Maryland Terrapins (20-7, 11-5), 2 p.m. (ESPN)
No. 69 Georgetown Hoyas (16-10, 6-7) at No. 56 Creighton Bluejays (14-13, 5-9), 2:30 p.m. (Fox)
No. 64 Seton Hall Pirates (16-10, 7-7) at No. 49 St. John’s Red Storm (19-8, 7-7), 8 p.m. (FS1)
No. 75 Colorado Buffaloes (16-10, 7-7) at No. 29 Washington Huskies (21-5, 12-1), 10:30 p.m. (Pac-12 Network)

Oklahoma really needs to avoid a second loss to Longhorns, if only so they can claim their first winning streak since January 23-26. Maryland, meanwhile, will aim for a repeat of its 14-point road win over Ohio State when the Buckeyes visit College Park. Georgetown’s tourney hopes are brighter, but that won’t be the case if Creighton knocks the Hoyas off for a second time. Seton Hall and St. John’s are both in need of a win following disappointing losses to Xavier and Providence, respectively, but only one can claim one today. (The Pirates are looking for a repeat of their two-point home win from December 29th.) Washington, meanwhile, will go four games up with four to play in the Pac-12 race by defeating Colorado in Seattle.

Group 2 for both the host and the visitor (2/2)

No. 40 Saint Mary’s Gaels (18-10, 9-4) at No. 106 San Diego Toreros (17-11, 6-7), 9 p.m. (TheW.tv)
No. 63 Memphis Tigers (16-11, 6-8) at No. 95 Wichita State Shockers (13-12, 6-7), 8 p.m. (ESPN2)
No. 72 Oregon Ducks (15-11, 6-7) at No. 115 UCLA Bruins (14-13, 7-7), 10 p.m. (ESPN2)

All three visitors might see their at-large chances end with road losses tonight.

Group 2 for the visitor; Group 1 for the host only (2/1)

No. 13 Virginia Tech Hokies (20-6, 9-5) at No. 103 Notre Dame Fighting Irish (13-13, 3-10), 4 p.m. (ESPN)
No. 12 Wisconsin Badgers (18-8, 10-5) at No. 86 Northwestern Wildcats (12-14, 3-12), 8:30 p.m. (BTN)

In the cases of Virginia Tech and Wisconsin, a bid isn’t at stake, but a spot among the top 16 protected seeds potentially is.

Group 1 for the visitor only; Group 3 for the host (1/3)

No. 124 Boston College Eagles (13-12, 4-9) at No. 44 Clemson Tigers (15-11, 5-8), 12 p.m. (ACC RSNs/ACC Network Extra)
No. 91 Tulsa Golden Hurricane (16-11, 6-8) at No. 54 Temple Owls (19-7, 9-4), 12 p.m. (ESPN News)
No. 120 West Virginia Mountaineers (10-16, 2-11) at No. 33 Baylor Bears (17-9, 8-5), 2 p.m. (ESPNU)
No. 87 Oklahoma State Cowboys (10-16, 3-10) at No. 28 Kansas State Wildcats (20-6, 10-3), 4 p.m. (ESPN2)
No. 118 Georgia Bulldogs (10-16, 1-12) at No. 34 Mississippi Rebels (18-8, 8-5), 3:30 p.m. (SECN)
No. 92 Missouri Tigers (12-13, 3-10) at No. 31 Florida Gators (15-11, 7-6), 4 p.m. (ESPNU)
No. 121 Saint Louis Billikens (17-9, 8-5) at No. 74 Dayton Flyers (17-9, 9-4), 4 p.m. (CBSSN)
No. 76 South Florida Bulls (17-8, 7-6) at No. 4 Houston Cougars (25-1, 12-1), 6 p.m. (ESPN2)
No. 81 South Carolina Gamecocks (14-12, 9-4) at No. 26 Mississippi State Bulldogs (19-7, 7-6), 6 p.m. (SECN)
No. 133 Harvard Crimson (13-9, 6-3) at No. 67 Yale Bulldogs (18-4, 8-1), 7 p.m. (ESPN+ ($))
No. 132 Vanderbilt Commodores (9-17, 0-13) at No. 51 Alabama Crimson Tide (15-11, 6-7), 6 p.m. (ESPNU)
No. 93 Fresno State Bulldogs (19-7, 10-4) at No. 22 Nevada Wolf Pack (24-2, 11-2), 8 p.m. (CBSSN)
No. 77 Texas A&M Aggies (11-14, 4-9) at No. 71 Arkansas Razorbacks (14-12, 5-8), 8:30 p.m. (SECN)
No. 82 BYU Cougars (18-11, 10-4) at No. 1 Gonzaga Bulldogs (26-2, 13-0), 10 p.m. (ESPN)

By far the biggest group of games today sees a wide range of postseason contenders hosting opponents they really should be able to take care of. The most intriguing games here are Temple’s attempt to avenge a bad road loss to Tulsa, Mississippi State’s attempt to knock South Carolina out of the SEC’s top four, South Florida’s chance at a marquee win in Houston, and the possible Ivy League championship preview in New Haven.

Group 3 for the visitor; Group 2 for the host only (3/2)

No. 36 Utah State Aggies (21-6, 11-3) at No. 155 Boise State Broncos (11-15, 6-7), 4 p.m. (Stadium on Facebook Live)
No. 55 Liberty Flames (23-5, 12-1) at No. 206 North Florida Ospreys (13-16, 7-7), 5 p.m. (ESPN+ ($))
No. 48 San Francisco Dons (21-6, 9-4) at No. 205 Santa Clara Broncos (14-13, 6-7), 11 p.m. (NBCS California/Root Sports/TheW.tv)

Utah State has the most to lose here, only the trip to Boise and a home game against San Diego State separates the Aggies from a home game with Nevada next Saturday. Liberty, meanwhile, will hope to avoid a road loss that would put idle Lipscomb back in the driver’s seat for the ASUN No. 1 seed, and the home-court advantage that goes with it.

Group 2 for the visitor only; Group 3 for the host (2/3)

No. 129 Western Kentucky Hilltoppers (16-11, 9-5) at No. 78 Old Dominion Monarchs (21-6, 11-3), 1 p.m. (Stadium)
No. 85 Oregon State Beavers (16-9, 8-5) at No. 83 USC Trojans (15-12, 8-6), 6 p.m. (Pac-12 Network)

Conference USA leader ODU hosts preseason favorite WKU in the first game of bonus play, while Oregon State will look to rebound from a devastating loss at UCLA at the Galen Center.

Group 3 for both the host and visitor (3/3)

No. 105 Utah Utes (14-12, 8-6) at No. 166 Washington State Cougars (11-15, 4-9), 8 p.m. (Pac-12 Network)

Washington State will look to win its fourth game in its last five, all of which featured opposition that had theoretical at-large hopes.

Group 1 for the visitor only; Group 4 for the host (1/4)

No. 256 George Washington Colonials (8-18, 4-9) at No. 37 VCU Rams (20-6, 11-2), 2 p.m. (WTVR/ESPN+ ($))
No. 328 SIU Edwardsville Cougars (9-18, 5-10) at No. 53 Belmont Bruins (22-4, 13-2), 6 p.m. (ESPN+ ($))
No. 317 Southeast Missouri State Redhawks (9-19, 4-11) at No. 59 Murray State Racers (22-4, 13-2), 8 p.m. (ESPN+ ($))

Theoretically simple home games await the Atlantic 10-leading Rams and the OVC’s co-leaders.
