Arizona-Duke highlights loaded day of post-Thanksgiving college hoops

Mark Dolejs-USA TODAY Sports

College basketball on television will start before noon on Friday, and end after midnight. For that, we are all thankful.

Thanksgiving weekend is synonymous with football, but we might not see a full day of college hoops as entertaining as this until March.

It all starts before noon, and then climaxes with an evening clash between No. 4 Arizona and No. 6 Duke inside the world's most famous arena.
