7pm ET - ESPN - #4 Pittsburgh @ #1 Connecticut - It took a monster game, but UConn's Hasheem Thabeet is finally receiving the attention he deserves. On Saturday against Seton Hall, Thabeet had 25 points (shooting 10 for 13), 20 rebounds, and 9 blocks. Pitt will have a difficult time driving to the lane with Thabeet waiting for them.
7pm - Versus - Rangers @ Blues - The Rangers look to avoid a seventh straight loss on the road.
7:30pm - ESPN2 - Women's Basketball: #4 Duke @ #15 Tennessee - It's been a bit of an off year for the Lady Volunteers. Though, many teams dream of an off-year like Tennessee is having, but at 18-6 and having lost thee of six games, they could use a win against a top 5 opponent.
9pm - ESPN - Texas @ Texas A&M - At 17-7 the Longhorns are definitely on the bubble and with games against Oklahoma and Kansas still ahead, they need every win they can get.
Non-sports pick - 8pm - TCM - Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid - It's Oscar month on TCM and this is one of the best.
