Hoops Championship Week: Thursday Open Thread

Hoops, hoops, and more hoops.

John Rieger-USA TODAY Sports

Iowa doesn't tip off until this evening, but there's still plenty of basketball to enjoy today. Sit back and watch a bit of it, won't you?

At the moment, Minnesota trails Illinois in the second half of the first game of the Big Ten Tournament. Both teams are likely in the NCAA Tournament field no matter what, but another loss would continue the Gophers' freefall over the past two months. The Illinois-Minnesota game is on BTN.

In non-B1G news, Iowa State trails Oklahoma 37-29 at halftime. The Cyclones are on the good side of the bubble and probably safe, but a loss here might have them sweating a bit on Sunday. That game is on ESPN2. There's also Cincinnati-Georgetown on ESPN if you hate your eyeballs and/or offensive basketball.

There's plenty more games on this afternoon and evening -- here's a very nice breakdown (including what channel each game is on) for your viewing pleasure.
