As usually about this time of the year there's a slew of Big East Conference men's basketball games on the TV Schedule Saturday, and for those hoops fans that would like to catch all the action here's a brief rundown of all the game times and previews.
Now, the Hoyas must go on the road to play a gritty Mountaineers squad (11-4, 2-1) led by senior forward Kevin Jones, who leads the Big East in scoring (19.6 points per game) and rebounding (11.6 per game).
Notre Dame Fighting Irish at No.11 Louisville Cardinals (4 p.m. on ESPNU): Surprisingly, this will be the first visit the KFC Yum! Center for the Fighting Irish (9-6, 1-1), who are coming off a 71-55 loss to the Cincinnati Bearcats on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, on Tuesday the Cardinals (13-2, 1-1) defeated the St. John's Red Storm, 73-58. Louisville has won seven straight home games against Notre Dame.
Seton Hall Pirates At Providence Friars (6 p.m. on SNY): The Pirates (13-2, 2-1) look to continue their winning ways and avoid a letdown after upsetting UConn Tuesday night at the Prudential Center. If Seton Hall can pull out the victory it will probably be ranked in the newest college basketball rankings, released Monday, for the first time since January of 2011.
Meanwhile, the Friars did their best to upset No. 1 Syracuse Wednesday night, but fell just short, losing 87-73.
