RCS Sidelines

What To Watch: Wednesday

7:30pm ET - Mavericks @ Rockets - T-Mac should be in the lineup and the Rockets desperately need him. They have lost 4 straight games and 8 of 9 against the Mavs. A Mavs win and a Spurs loss to the Magic would put the Mavs in 1st place in Southwest division.

9pm - ESPN2 - Ohio State vs. Syracuse
- Syracuse missed the NCAA Tournament last season because of a weak out of conference schedule. This is their chance to get a marquee victory for their resume this year. How will Syracuse handle 7-foot freshman Kosta Koufos who's drawing comparisons to former Buckeye, Greg Oden? Will Ohio State be able to run with a very athletic Syracuse squad?

9pm - Versus - Louisville @ UNLV - UPSET WATCH: Louisville lost big man David Padgett for the year and are without forward Juan Palacios until December. The Rebels have won 19 in a row at home and Vegas is definitely the best home town advantage.

10pm - ESPN - Maui Invitational Final: Marquette vs. Duke
- Both teams enter the contest at 4-0 and ranked in the top 15. This game might have an impact on March Madness. Yes, of course it would be a huge victory for either team, but it could help determine which conference (ACC or Big East) gets an extra team into the tournament. These two teams played last season with the Golden Eagles pulling off the victory and they returned their key players from last year's team.

Non-sports pick - 8pm - Discovery Channel - Rise Of The Video Game - Just the first of many in this series. This one focus's on Pong and Pac-Man. I can't wait for Legend of Zelda and Contra.
