What's On Television: March 3, 2012

New, comment

Saturday is college basketball day. Here are a few games we'll be watching, along with other Saturday afternoon sporting events. What will you be watching?

+ College Basketball: Cincinnati At Villanova (2:00 PM, ESPN)
Cincinnati may have already played themselves into the NCAA tournament after a convincing win over No. 7 Marquette on Thursday, a week after beating No. 17 Louisville. This is Cincinnati's final regular season game before the Tournament kicks off on March 13 -- what a day that's going to be.

+ PGA Tour Golf: Honda Classic (3:00 PM, NBC)
Tiger Woods finished one-over par on Thursday with a slight rebound on Friday. But he's well off the leaders of Tom Gillis (-8), Justin Rose (-8), Rory Mcllroy (-7) and Dicky Pride (-7). Really. If you need a reason to watch this, look no further than a golfer named Dicky Pride.

+ NASCAR Nationwide Series: Bashas' Supermarkets 200 (5:00 PM, ESPN 2)
Danica Patrick wrecked three cars last weekend in Daytona. How will she rebound in Phoenix? And will another no-name like James Buescher surge to the front on a major last-lap wreck?

+ College Basketball: No. 6 North Carolina At No 3 Duke (7:00 PM, ESPN)
The last time these two teams faced each other, Doc Rivers' son Austin Rivers nails a buzzer-beating three-point to beat the Tar Heels 85-84. For the second time in as many years, both teams enter this game tied for the ACC. The winner claims the conference.
