After a wild Saturday of hoops, here's what to watch for on Sunday:
Rutgers at Michigan, 12 p.m. ET, BTN: Last week, the Scarlet Knights rolled over Iowa at home while the Wolverines lost at Nebraska.

Rutgers could play the spoiler roll in the second half of the Big Ten season. The Scarlet Knights are talented enough to do so.
|Team||Conference record||Overall record|
Miami at NC State, 12 p.m. ET, ACC Network: The Hurricanes are hoping to avoid the upset bug at NC State, where the Wolfpack have already beaten Duke and Clemson this season.
Boston College at Louisville, 12 p.m. ET, ACC Network: The Eagles have the guard play with Ky Bowman and Jerome Robinson to beat the Cardinals.

But the problem is outside of the one-point loss at Virginia, BC hasn’t been the same team on the road as at home. This could be a good game to change that narrative. Louisville is quietly just one game back of Virginia in the ACC title chase.
Vermont at Hartford, 1 p.m. ET, ESPN3: No joke, this is a danger game for the America East first-place Catamounts. Vermont has won eight in a row. But Hartford is two games back and already knocked off Albany on the road.
Virginia at Wake Forest, 6 p.m. ET, ESPNU: The Cavaliers are the only remaining unbeaten team in ACC play and they have won nine in a row.
6-0 in @theACC! Check out the big plays from our 64-48 win over Georgia Tech in Atlanta last night. #GoHoos #Wahoowa pic.twitter.com/w5AEv9NCUb— Virginia Men's Basketball (@UVAMensHoops) January 19, 2018
Wake Forest has the size to be an issue for the Cavaliers. But the Demon Deacons have lost four in a row and six of seven.
