This Thanksgiving is a weird one for reasons you don’t need explained, but there is still college basketball. Thanksgiving college basketball is a longstanding tradition for many hoops lovers, and although it was in question whether or not fans would get to watch on Turkey Day, we know the answer now.
It’s been the weirdest offseason ever, and you might not know what’s going on. But you have the day off (hopefully), and you might as well turn the TV on to some Thanksgiving ball. We’re here to let you know what to watch for this year.

There will be more college basketball this year, COVID or not. Games will be cancelled and postponed, but many will be played. Now that the sport is getting back into swing, we plan to publish our comprehensive watch guides regularly again soon so you can always know what’s on, when and where. Granted, plenty of the games we list in our watch guides will be changed or not happen at all. But we’re not the ones scheduling them, nor are we the ones who introduced the coronavirus to the human population – take it up with them.
