March 13 College Basketball Game Thread: The Return of Fuquan, Smart vs. Wiggins

John Rieger-USA TODAY Sports

Most Philadelphia fans will be more interested in today's afternoon games. First, Villanova begins Big East Tournament action as they seek to cement a 1-seed and then in the Big 12 Tournament, Andrew Wiggins and Kansas play Marcus Smart and Oklahoma State.

Welcome back, tank fans. I hope you are available to watch some basketball in the early-mid afternoon hours between 2:30 and 5:30 because there is going to be some fun this afternoon. 12 2014 draft picks will be playing in that window alone, and that's not counting Joel Embiid (out with a back injury) and some possible 2015 draft picks, including the wonderful Delon Wright of Utah, Kentucky's Harrison twins, and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson of Arizona.

Here is your schedule of games, including time and channel and who to watch in terms of 2014 draft class members.
