We’re finally here – the last weekend of the regular season. Some teams have led up to this by playing their way onto the bubble (Penn State, Oklahoma State), others have tried their best to burst their own bubble (Kentucky, Florida). But whatever the case, this weekend should be filled with some great basketball, as teams try to end the season on a positive note. Here’s some games to keep an eye on.
The second-to-last weekend of the regular season offers a ton of great games as teams try to add to their March resumes. With nearly every conference race yet to be decided, this weekend could go a long way toward determining seedings. Here’s a look at some of the best to watch for this weekend.
Saturday, Feb. 28
At half-time of last Saturday’s primetime game, ESPN commentators provided analysis of plays that I just saw, replays of action that I just saw, and statistics of the first half that I just saw. That led me to ponder: “Didn’t I just see this?” And, “Does ESPN, the network that I love more than life itself, think I’m an idiot?” The commentators did not respond.
It's that time of year.. when the NCAA Tournament is all the rage, and everybody and your mother starts talking college hoops. Get a leg up on your bracket competitors by watching this week's prime-time games.

Any Luster To ESPN’s Bracket Buster?
My wife thinks I’m a College-Hoop-aholic. The evidence is somewhat convincing:
*On February 14th, she asked, “Do you have any idea what today is? I responded, “Yeah, it’s Wisconsin’s turn to host College GameDay.”
