College Basketball Schedule, SEC And ACC: Tennessee-UConn, Boston College-Florida State, Kentucky-South Carolina

This weekend's SEC and ACC hoops action is highlighted by Tennessee coach Bruce Pearl's return to the sideline in a match-up with Jim Calhoun's UConn Huskies. Boston College will face off against Florida State in Tallahassee and Kentucky and South Carolina will battle for the top spot in the SEC East.

Tennessee Volunteers Vs. No. 8 Connecticut Huskies, 2:00pm Saturday, CBS: Bruce Pearl returns to the bench as this game is not part of his SEC mandated eight game suspension for lying to NCAA investigators. The Volunteers to this point have had a roller coaster of a season playing well enough to beat then ranked No. 4 Pittsburgh then playing badly enough to lose to the likes of Charlotte. The Huskies are ranked No. 8 and are led by Player of the Year candidate Kemba Walker who is averaging 25 points per game.
