With the exception of Connecticut vs. No. 4 Duke (Thursday) and No. 2 Arizona at UTEP (Friday), it’s a fairly slow week for clashes involving the Power 16 squads.
Things will accelerate on Saturday, though, when top-ranked Kentucky faces UCLA and No. 11 Ohio State takes on North Carolina in a double-dip – televised by CBS – in Chicago.
And, in another Saturday doubleheader (this one in Las Vegas), No. 13 Washington takes on Oklahoma and Utah – with only narrow losses at Kansas and San Diego State – faces UNLV.
