College Basketball Today is an SportsChannel program that covers college basketball & is a spin-off of the successful college football version. Since debuting on January 22th 2005, it airs on SC Saturdays in the college basketball season @ 11:00 AM ET & 8:00 PM ET @ a different game site each week. 1 difference between the 2 versions is that the college basketball version always appears @ the SC Saturday Night College Basketball game location, which is the SC college basketball game of the week & appears @ 9:00 PM ET Saturdays on SC. This program has also appeared @ the site of the Final 4. The 1st 2 years of the show, it went to 7 sites in 7 weeks, but starting in 2007, it has been expanded to 8 sites in 8 weeks.

College Basketball Today is broadcast LIVE twice, both for 1 hour from 11:00 AM-noon ET & from 8:00-9:00 PM ET, respectively. The series began it's 6th season on January 16th, 2010 from Storrs, Connecticut, where for the 1st time ever, it was on site for a women's college basketball game

HistoryEdit

The program has appeared in many different spots throughout each basketball arena. At Kansas, they were in the program's museum. At Kentucky, they were @ the entrance of the arena. At UConn, they were on the concourse. At Gonzaga, Florida & Marquette, they were on the court & @ Duke, they were in Krzyzewskiville, the tent village outside Cameron Indoor Stadium. It's also worth noting that in recent years (except for the Final 4), the morning airings of this program have taken place on the court.

Today originally was just for football, but the raging & expanding popularity of college basketball led to the initiation of the basketball version of the show.

Through the end of the 2009-2010 basketball & football seasons, 17 schools (Boston College, Clemson, Florida, Kansas State, Kentucky, LSU, Michigan State, North Carolina, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Pittsburgh, Tennessee, Texas, UCLA & Wisconsin) have hosted College Basketball Today for basketball events & College Football Today for football events.

Starting with the 4th season (2008), College Basketball Today is broadcast in HD on SC-HD.

On January 16th 2010, the 6th season premiere of College Basketball Today, the show was broadcast LIVE from the site of a women's college basketball game for the 1st time ever as it made an appearance @ Gampel Pavilion in Storrs, Connecticut. The show covered the women's college basketball game between Notre Dame Fighting Irish & the Connecticut Huskies
