–Ohio State vs. San Diego State, 9 p.m. ET, ESPNU

“I don’t know that we’ve ever had the kind of balance that that we’ve got in this year’s tournament,” tournament chairman Dave Odom said. “It is the most balanced eight teams that I’ve seen since I’ve been doing this.”

The semifinals and consolation games will take place on Nov. 22, followed by the championship on Nov. 23. The final will air at 5 p.m. ET on ESPN.
