BracketBusters television schedule: Lineup for final year released

Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

Creighton plays Saint Mary's and Ohio faces Belmont in the final installment of ESPN's BracketBusters series.

The final installment of ESPN's BracketBusters series may not have the top 25 showdown that has headlined past years, but it will again feature a handful of teams getting a much-needed shot at a big-time resume win.

Saint Mary's tops that list and finds itself squarely on the bubble with just over one month to go until Selection Sunday. For the Gaels, who will host No. 16 Creighton on Feb. 23, this event could wind up being a Godsend.

Other highlights of the final BracketBusters include at-large hopefuls Ohio and Belmont squaring off, and mid-major stars Isaiah Canaan of Murray State and Nate Wolters of South Dakota State stepping on the court together.

Here's the full television schedule for this year's event:
