11-16-19 College Basketball Games to Watch

Headliner Game

#20 Washington vs. Tennessee (-1) (Toronto, Canada; James Naismith Classic-Hall of Fame event) at 5 p.m. (ESPN+) $$

Only one game of major national relevance with college football still being played. Washington stole a big win against Baylor with a late rally. Tennessee can get into the Top 25 with a win here. This game is one of those tourney/seed resume’ builders that both teams would like to have. I am taking the Vols in what should be a close one.

Upset Watch Games

Nicholls St. at LSU (-20) at 4 p.m. (SECN+)

Vermont at St. John’s (-2 ½) (Air Force Tip-Off Campus Round Game) at 4 p.m. (FS2)

La. Tech at Creighton (-8) at 6 p.m. (FS2)

Troy at Indiana (-22) (Indiana Challenge) at 8 p.m. (BTN)

USC (-2 ½) at Nevada at 11 p.m. (CBSSN)

I mixed in some big underdogs with some slight underdogs for today. I think one of the two big underdogs provides a scare, and at least one of the slight underdogs wins. Vermont is the most obvious choice here.

Other Games to Watch

Old Dominion at Northeastern at 1 p.m. (NESN/FloHoops-$$)

N. Colorado at N. Iowa (Cancun Challenge Preliminary Round game) at 1 p.m. (ESPN+) $$

Jacksonville vs. Dartmouth (River Hawk Inv.; Lowell, MA) at 1:30 p.m. (

Belmont (-1) at Boston College (Gotham Classic) at 2 p.m. (ACCN)

Temple at LaSalle at 2 p.m. (ESPN+) $$

Harvard vs. Buffalo (Toronto, Canada; James Naismith Classic-Hall of Fame Event) at 2:30 p.m. (ESPN+) $$

Montana St. at UNC Greensboro (Spartan Invitational; Greensboro, NC) at 6 p.m. (ESPN3)

James Madison at George Mason at 7 p.m. (ESPN+) $$

Seattle at Syracuse (NIT Season Tip-Off campus game) at 7 p.m. (ACCN Extra)

Kent St. at Wright St. at 7 p.m. (ESPN3)

Rutgers vs. St. Bonaventure (Toronto, Canada; Hall of Fame event) at 7:30 p.m. (ESPN+) $$

Wofford at Butler (Hall of Fame Classic On-Campus Game) at 8 p.m. (FS2)

San Francisco at S. Illinois at 8 p.m. (ESPN3)

Oregon St. at Wyoming at 9 p.m. (Stadium on Facebook Watch)

This is a good Saturday to enjoy some solid mid-major games if you are a hoops nut like myself. The Hall of Fame event in Canada provides good match-ups all day too. Enjoy!
