7pm ET - ESPN – NCAA Basketball: #8 Syracuse at #4 Pittsburgh - Syracuse is coming off their best win of the season, beating Notre Dame by 19 points on Saturday. Pitt lost for the first time Saturday against Louisville. It seems like everyday there's a matchup of two top-ten Big East teams.
7pm - ESPN2 - Women's Basketball: #1 Connecticut at #2 North Carolina - These teams, along with Auburn, are two of the three remaining unbeaten teams in women's basketball.
8pm - Versus – NHL: Wild at Blackhawks - This season, the Blackhawks are 14-2-5 at home, which doesn't bode well for the Wild, who have lost eight of their past 10 road games.
8pm - TNT – NBA: Suns at Celtics - Since a 2-7 stretch the Celtics have won four in a row and look to be evening out.
9pm - ESPN – NCAA Basketball: Texas A&M at Kansas - A&M played Oklahoma tight on Saturday, but playing in Kansas usually doesn't work out well for visitors.
10:30pm - TNT – NBA :Cavaliers at Lakers - LeBron James has been the MVP so far this season. But you don't have to take my word for it - just ask Kobe.
Non-sports pick - 9pm - Spike - Dogtown & Z-Boys - A great documentary about the rise of skateboarding in Southern California well before Tony Hawk.
