I think I'm at the point in the College Basketball Season where I can't even stand to watch any of the major conferences. It happens every year without failing. First it's the Big Ten (50-45 games are never fun), then the Big XII, then the Pac 10, and finally the ACC (I don't even think I start watching SEC teams until the tourney). That's why ESPN's Bracket Busters Weekend+ is coming at the perfect time.
Here's the schedule that they released today, and I'm ready for it to be February 22nd already....
7 p.m. Davidson at Winthrop ESPN2
9 p.m. UC Santa Barbara at Utah State ESPNU
11 a.m. Virginia Commonwealth at Akron ESPN2
1 p.m. George Mason at Ohio ESPN2
3 p.m. Creighton at Oral Roberts ESPN2
4:30 p.m. Nevada at Southern Illinois ESPNU
5 p.m. #15 Drake at #10 Butler ESPN2
6 p.m. Miami (Ohio) at Valparaiso ESPN Classic
6:30 p.m. Marist at Cleveland State ESPNU
9 p.m. Rider at Cal State Northridge ESPNU
9 p.m. UW Milwaukee at Bradley ESPN360.com
10 p.m. Siena at Boise State ESPN360.com
11:59 p.m. Kent State at #21 Saint Mary’s ESPN2
6:30 p.m. Wright State at Illinois State ESPNU
The teams you should watch besides Drake and Butler are Siena and Ohio. I've seen Siena play twice this year and they're more exciting than half the teams in the Top 25, and Ohio put a whooping on the Terps (my team) back in December. Should be a great three days.
