New, 50 comments

It's the most wonderful time of the year!

Frank Victores-USA TODAY Sports

Topping Friday night will be tough for conference tournaments across the country, but today represents one of the greatest days of the year in college basketball. Championship Saturday features all-day action from across the country, and several games that will have a direct impact on the top seeds for Selection Sunday's bracket reveal.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to watch college basketball for 15 hours straight today.

Many thanks to Jon Morse of Bring On The Cats for this gorgeous schedule, complete with game times and TV coverage (and blog links!). This is your Saturday open thread to discuss all the action across the country. We'll have our Villanova game thread open tonight!
