11-27-19 College Basketball Games to Watch
UCLA vs. #3 Michigan St. (-14) (Maui Invitational-5th Place Game; Lahaina, Hawaii) at 2:30 p.m. (ESPN)
Dayton vs. #4 Kansas (-4) (Maui Invitational-Championship Game; Lahaina, Hawaii) at 5 p.m. (ESPN)
Wichita St. vs. West Virginia (-1) (Cancun Challenge-Riviera Division-Championship Game) at 8:30 p.m. (CBSSN)
#11 Oregon vs. #13 Seton Hall (-2) (Battle 4 Atlantis; Paradise Island, Bahamas) at 9:30 p.m. (ESPN2)
Great slate of games today and tonight. Sparty can notch another nice bounce back win vs. UCLA. The Bruins need a big-time win if they want to be in the NCAA tourney talk, and Sparty’s opening round stumble in Maui gives them that shot. One of the best teams so far not being talked about nationally is Dayton. Well, if they knock off the Jayhawks, that will change. That one should be good. Wichita St. and the Mountaineers are both unbeaten, and the winner should be creeping towards a Top 25 very soon. The BEST game of the bunch on paper is the ranked match-up between Oregon and Myles Powell-led Seton Hall. Oregon has looked great so far; can Powell get enough help to take them down. It should be fun!
Upset Watch Games
Alabama vs. #6 N. Carolina (-9 ½) (Battle 4 Atlantis; Paradise Island, Bahamas) at 2:30 p.m. (ESPN2)
Bradley vs. Kansas St. (-5 ½) (Fort Myers Tip-Off-Consolation Game; Fort Myers, FL) at 6 p.m. (FS1)
Georgia (-26) vs. Chaminade (Maui Invitational 7th Place Game; Lahaina, Hawaii) at 9 p.m. (ESPNU)
A lot of fairly even match-ups today in these tourneys, but these 3 games could get dicey for the favorites. Okay, probably not for UGa, but I wanted to give a shout out to Chaminade with all these major upsets happening (I see you Evansville and Stephen effing Austin). They still own one of the biggest shockers ever taking down Ralph Sampson and Virginia (Google it, kids).
