Boston Sports TV Listings, Nov. 8: Celtics play 76ers, UConn hoops, football in action

There's plenty of hoops going on in Boston on Friday night, and although some of it is on the college level, you'll have to go see those games in person: only the NBA game and some games of national interest are on TV on the day when college hoops tips off. Let's take a look at tonight's TV schedule, with all times Eastern:

↵

NBA: Philadelphia 76ers vs. Boston Celtics, 7:30 p.m., Comcast Sports New England: The Celtics try to go above .500 with a win in a game against an Atlantic Division opponent. The Sixers are 2-2, but they've struggled this year offensively without Andrew Bynum, boasting the lowest points-per-game total of any team in the league in the early stretch of the season.

↵

College basketball: No. 14 Michigan St. Spartans vs. UConn Huskies, 5:30 p.m. ESPN: Kevin Ollie's first game as head coach of UConn will take place, oddly enough, in Germany, as they play a ranked Michigan State team at Ramstein Air Force Base in Germany.

↵

College football: Pitt Panthers vs. UConn Huskies, 8 p.m., ESPN: The good news for UConn fans is that technically, when this game happens, it will already be basketball season. The Huskies are hoping for their first conference win against a 4-5 Pitt team that barely lost to undefeated Notre Dame in triple overtime last week.
