NEW YORK (Sporting Alert) — The NCAA Men’s College basketball top 25 games, live TV channels and streaming information for Saturday, March, 15.
With the national tournament set to start next week, several teams will be looking to either booking a place or build some kind of momentum heading into the tournament.
After hammering Missouri 72-49 in their SEC tournament quarter-final game on Friday, No. 1 Florida Gators (30-2), on a school-record 24-game winning streak, will be hoping to keep that streak going when they take on Tennessee in Saturday’s semifinal clash at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.
“I think when a team’s ranked No. 1 in the country, goes 18-0 in the SEC regular season and you have not laid eyes on us, you would sit there and say, ‘Geez, they must be blowing everybody out. No one must come close to these guys,'” coach Billy Donovan said.
“But if you want to go through the scores of our games in the SEC, they have all been right there.
“Sometimes if you watched our team play, we maybe don’t play or look as dominant as our record does.”
Also in action on Saturday from the list of top 25 teams are No. 4 Arizona (30-3), which take on UCLA in search of its first Pac-12 tournament crown in 12 years and No. 7 Duke (25-7), who battle with an impressive North Carolina State (21-12) in the ACC tournament semi-final.
“I’m not surprised at NC State,” said Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski. “NC State is playing great basketball, and Mark’s [Gottfried] got his team at a real high level of belief.
“[T.J.] Warren is playing lights-out basketball. I mean, he’s had a great year, but the last few weeks, last couple of weeks, you know, phenomenal is not exaggerating.
“He’s been unbelievable, and he never seems to get tired.”
The Blue Devils survived being upset by a very determined Clemson team on Friday night, when they come away 63-62 winners after Rodney Hood knocked down a pair of free throws with less then four-seconds left in the game.
