NCAA Basketball: Harvard, UConn, Providence, Boston College All In Action This Weekend

Harvard, UConn, Providence and Boston College are all in action this weekend.

The college basketball regular season is winding down, and that means teams are working hard to improve their resumes for Selection Sunday.

Four New England teams will take the court this weekend, starting with the Ivy League-leading Harvard Crimson, who host the Brown Bears on Friday night. Harvard fell to Princeton last Saturday, and it cost them a spot in the major college basketball polls. At 21-3, the Crimson remain the favorites to take home the Ivy League's regular-season crown, which would ensure them of an NCAA bid.

UConn, the defending national champion, will host the red-hot Marquette Golden Eagles on Saturday afternoon, who have lost just once in their past 10 games. The Huskies need a win to climb back to .500 in Big East conference play, and are currently at risk of being left out of the NCAA tournament.

Another Big East team, Providence, will host Georgetown on Saturday, and the Friars will look to dig themselves out of the Big East basement. The Friars entered conference play with just two losses, but are 2-12 in the Big East and have dropped to 13-14 overall.

Finally, the Boston College Eagles welcome the fourth-ranked Duke Blue Devils to Conte Forum on Sunday afternoon in their penultimate home game of the season. The last time the Eagles took the home court they upset then-17th ranked Florida State, and hope to surprise another top foe on Sunday.
