Viewing Guide for the Week of Feb. 7-13
These are the games that I will be watching in the upcoming week, and I suggest that you watch them as well.
Connecticut at Syracuse 7pm ESPN
This game will be a battle between two great low post players in Hakim Warrick and Josh Boone. This game also features great perimeter play with Rashad Anderson and Gerry McNamara.
Oklahoma at Oklahoma State 9pm ESPN2
Oklahoma won round 1 of this in state rivalry, and O.K. State will try to get revenge on their home floor.
2004 ALCS Game 5 New York Yankees at Boston Red Sox 6pm NESN
Get your VCR's ready. One of the greatest games in all of Red Sox history. David Ortiz comes up big in the 14th inning and provides the winning hit for the Red Sox for the second game in a row.
Boston College at Notre Dame 7pm ESPN2
This could be Boston College's hardest game of the season as they travel to South Bend to play the Fighting Irish.
Phoenix at Sacramento 10pm
Two of the best teams in the West square off.
2004 ALCS Game 6 Boston Red Sox at New York Yankees 6pm NESN
One of the greatest pitching performances by anybody to ever put on a Red Sox uniform. Curt Schilling gave the Red Sox 7 awesome innings and the Sox tied the series at 3-3.
North Carolina at Duke 9pm ESPN
This is one of the games that you look forward to every year, regardless if you root for one of these two teams. North Carolina has the better team this year, but Duke might have the best home court advantage in all of college basketball. This is the game of the week.
2004 ALCS Game 7 Boston Red Sox at New York Yankees 7pm NESN
Johnny Damon. After struggling the whole series Damon had two homers and six RBI's to take the AL pennant and be the first team ever to come back from a 0-3 deficit. And to think I was there to witness history. Unbelievable!!!!!!
N.C. State at Wake Forest 7pm ESPN
N.C. State lost both of their games last week to North Carolina and Virginia, and they are not going to make the tournament, unless they get some big wins. A win at Wake would be huge.
Sacramento at Seattle 10:30 TNT
This game promises to be an up-tempo fast break type of NBA game that is rarely seen anymore. You definitely don't want to miss a chance to see fast break NBA basketball like this.
Denver at Cleveland 8pm ESPN
Lebron vs. Carmelo. Nuff said.
Wisconsin at Illinois 1pm CBS
The Illini broke Wisconsin's 38 home game win streak a few weeks ago. The Badgers have a shot at revenge in this game.
Duke at Maryland 9pm ESPN
Different game, but similar scenario. Duke was undefeated until Maryland rolled into Cameron a few weeks ago, and blew up the idea of Duke going undefeated for the season. Duke can get revenge at Maryland's home court in Saturday night primetime ESPN basketball.
North Carolina at Connecticut 1pm CBS
Talk about a tough week Going into Cameron is a hard enough week by itself, but having to travel to Storrs to play the Huskies will make for a hard week for the Tar Heels.
N.C. State at Georgia Tech 6pm FSN
Even if N.C. State wins on Thursday against Wake, they still need some more quality wins. After the game against GT, they still have Maryland, North Carolina and Wake again. Talk about a tough couple weeks. I think N.C. State needs to win 3 of those games, and beat up on the other teams they play to get into the tourney. I just don't see it happening.
