College hoops weekend: With NFL over, ESPN, CBS, Fox, Pac-12 and Big 10 Networks run busy schedules

In the Big East, Seton Hall and Villanova battle Saturday afternoon with Tim Brando and Donny Marshall presiding over the Fox microphones

Broadcast notes, college basketball telecasts, weekend of February 8th:

Doug Gottlieb leaves the studio to work USC at Arizona State. He joins Aaron Goldsmith who does Seattle Mariners baseball

Tim Brando and former Connecticut star Donny Marshall get the best game on Fox’ slate, Seton Hall at Vlllanova. Is the Hall’s Myles Powell the Player of the Year?

Stephen Bardo works hard. He engages on Facebook. The man is giving it his all. Bardo, 51, starred at Illinois. He joins Kevin Kugler on Butler at Marquette

I see some old time players on this weekend’s announcers roster. I covered a quartet of them when I was calling St. John’s games; Jimmy Jackson, Ohio State; Don MacLean, UCLA; Malcolm Huckaby, Boston College and Mark Plansky, Villanova. Yikes, I’m getting old.

Then there’s Steve Lappas who played for City College, whom I covered when I was in college. Lappas coached Rod Strickland at Truman HS in New York, won the New York City championship and later coached Villanova and Massachusetts. Lappas is among the best analysts on television today.

Schedule provided for CBS Broadcast, CBS Network, Big Ten Network, Pac-12 Network, ESPN and Fox. In addition to these games, there are tons of others available on ESPN+, ESPN 3 and other streaming devices. Live video of virtually any game at any division is available today.
