What To Watch: Thursday

by Robbie Gillies

7pm ET - ESPN - WVU @ Louisville - WVU is coming off a 15 point win over Marquette on Sunday and the Mountaineers have looked tough under head coach Bob Huggins. Neither team has a dominant scorer with West Virginia having four players who average double figures and Louisville having all five of their starters in double figures.

7pm - ESPN2 - High School Basketball: Helen Cox vs. Norcross
- I don't know about Helen Cox but Norcross is excited.

8pm - TNT - Pistons @ Spurs
- The Pistons look to avoid their first three game losing streak of the season, but, they'll have to beat the Spurs at home where they're 17-2 (best in the NBA). Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich is looking for his 600th career win.

9pm - ESPN - Illinois @ #21 Wisconsin
- Illinois is the only team in the Big Ten to have beaten Wisconsin at home under head coach Bo Ryan. But, Illinois is struggling this year and comes into this game with an 8-7 record.

9pm - ESPN 2 - Arkansas @ Auburn - Both teams have strong defenses as this looks to be a low scoring game. But Auburn will be without the nation's leader in field goal percentage (72%) Korvotney Barber. He broke his non-shooting hand at the end of December and will be out at least a month.

10:30pm - TNT - Suns @ Jazz - Steve Nash sat out much of the end of the Suns OT victory over the Pacers yesterday and could miss tonight's game with a stomach flu. The Jazz are just 6-12 in their last 18 games, but they're 13-3 at home.

Non-sports pick - 8:30pm - NBC - 30 Rock - There's new episodes of a good show on! Rejoice!
