Your viewing guide for Saturday

In putting together the top 10 trackers and women's hockey playoff coverage, I noticed there were several series that seem to feature exciting, thrilling games, and I also noticed that merely clicking over to SSN will let you see many of these games.

So here's what's viewable for today:

3:00 ET: Women's basketball, Ottawa at Carleton, OUA East final

Why you should have watched: I'm cheating here with the first game, because it's over now, but had I posted this earlier, you could have watched Ottawa secure a spot in the Final 8 for the second straight year by beating their crosstown rivals.

6:00 ET: Women's basketball, Brock at Windsor, OUA West semifinal

Why you should watch it: The Lancers are one of the best teams in the country, but still need to win this game plus another against Western to make the Final 8.

6:00 ET: Women's hockey, St. Thomas at Moncton (webcast in French), AUS semifinal

Why you should watch: The winner plays SMU tomorrow to determine the other AUS berth, and as good as les Aigles Bleues are, the Tommies have about a 10% chance of winning, and have already beaten them once this year and taken them to overtime in another game.

6:30 ET: Women's volleyball, McMaster vs. Toronto, OUA final

Why you should watch: it's a conference championship, the winner goes to nationals in Edmonton, and the loser doesn't. Enough said.

7:00 ET: Men's basketball: Waterloo at Lakehead, OUA West semifinal

Why you should watch: Waterloo's the only remaining OUA West team that's kept it close in Thunder Bay twice this year, losing by a combined nine points in their weekend there. And the great group of dudes, of course, are in the middle of their most successful season in a while and are hosting their first playoff game, a long time. The outcome here is not very predictable.

9:00 ET: Women's basketball, UBC at Alberta, Game 2 of 3.

Why you should watch: It's a must-win for UBC, after losing in overtime to the Pandas yesterday. Whoever wins this series advances to the Canada West Final Four with host SFU, Saskatchewan, and Regina, and one win there puts a team in the Final 8 in Hamilton.
