What to Watch: Thursday

by Robbie Gillies

7pm ET - ESPN – NCAA Basketball: #5 Louisville @ Notre Dame - Notre Dame's overtime loss to Louisville on January 12th started a skid of seven straight. They need a few wins just to get back on the bubble.

7pm - ESPN2 – NCAA Basketball: Temple @ St. Joseph's - Dayton and Xavier might have better overall records, but St. Joseph's is still the team to beat in the Atlantic 10. The Hawks are 7-1 in conference play.

7pm - TNT – NBA: Heat @ Bulls - Last time these two teams played, tempers rose. With a comfortable lead, the Heat called a timeout with 30 seconds left to remove Dwyane Wade and two other starters. The Bulls vowed to remember that.

9pm - ESPN – NCAA Basketball: #11 UCLA @ #18 Arizona State - The Sun Devils won the first matchup this season, but UCLA has been playing outstanding since then and will look for payback.

9pm - ESPN2 – NCAA Basketball: #22 Illinois @ Northwestern - Illinois looks to snap a four-game road losing streak.

9:30pm - TNT – NBA: Celtics @ Mavericks - Celtics look to win their ninth straight road game.

11pm - ESPN2 – NCAA Basketball: #19 Gonzaga @ St. Mary's - St. Mary's is undefeated at home, but will be without their top scorer, Patrick Mills.

Non-sports pick - 12am - ABC - Jimmy Kimmel Live - Another Demetri Martin suggestion? Yup.
