What To Watch: Saturday

12pm ET - ESPN - Pittsburgh @ Syracuse - At 20-8, Pitt is in good shape for the Tournament, but one more win could all but ensure them entry. The Orange are definitely on the wrong side of the bubble and have to win this home game.

2pm - ESPN - Texas A&M @ Oklahoma
- The Aggies have 21 wins and play in a strong conference (Big 12), but they've lost three of their last four games and you know how much the Selection Committee looks at how a team is doing at the end of the season.

2pm - ESPN2 - Wichita State @ #20 Drake - Drake has locked up the Missouri Valley Conference, but have lost three of their past five. They will look to bounce back after a loss to Missouri State on Tuesday against Wichita State. Wichita State is having an awful year and is just one game ahead of last place Evansville in the MVC.

4pm - ESPN - Ohio State @ Minnesota
- Most likely, a battle of two NIT-bound teams.

9pm - ESPN - Kansas State @ #7 Kansas - The Jayhawks have had this game circled since January 30th when Michael Beasley delivered on his guarantee to beat Kansas. The win ended a 24-game losing streak to Kansas at Kansas State. Will the Jayhawks be able to slow down Beasley this time?

Non-sports pick - NBC - 11:30pm - Saturday Night Live - Ellen Page was amazing in Juno so it might be worth actually watching SNL...or just watch the one funny clip online the next day.
