College basketball TV schedule: Conference tournaments heat up on Thursday

Matthew Holst

The Big Ten tournament finally gets under way Thursday, while several others heat up as the weekend approaches.

Finally, the Big Ten Tournament is here. Illinois opened the tourney with a win over Indiana, and Ohio State and Purdue will follow shortly. Tonight, Minnesota and Penn State tip off at 5:30 p.m. CT, with Iowa and Northwestern beginning the nightcap at approximately 8 p.m.

Elsewhere, there's major tournament action everywhere you look. There's already been a stunner: Seton Hall taking down Villanova in the Big East quarterfinals. That apparently opens up a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament... can Wisconsin or Michigan take advantage?
