All eight teams are still competing competing for a better seed in the NCAA Tournament, while Connecticut would like a little extra insurance about its chances for an invite to March Madness.

All of the remaining games will be broadcasted on ESPN and WatchESPN - formerly known as ESPN3. Thursday begins at noon with Connecticut vs. Syracuse and concludes with a 9 p.m. primetime game between South Florida and Notre Dame.
