What To Watch: Thursday

7pm ET - ESPN - West Virginia @ #25 Pittsburgh - Pitt looks to avoid back-to-back Big East losses for the first time in nearly two years. The Panthers are 10-1 at home and have won nine of the past 12 against the Mountaineers.

7pm - ESPN2 - Clemson @ Virginia - Clemson needs this win to stay in the top half of the ACC, Virginia needs this win to stay in the hunt for the NIT.

8pm - TNT - Cavaliers @ Rockets - These are two of the hottest teams in the league. Since January 1st, the Cavs are 13-3 while the Rockets are 13-4. LeBron James is on an absolute tear and almost single handedly leading the Cavs up the East standings.

9pm - ESPN - #13 Indiana @ Illinois - Illinois fans will not be giving Eric Gordon a standing ovation tonight. Gordon orally committed to Illinois before signing with Indiana. But, by the end of the night they might have to give him his props. He's leading the Big Ten in scoring at 21.8 points per game and it looks like one and done for this freshman.

9pm - ESPN2 - #14 Xavier @ St. Louis - Which St. Louis team will show up? The one that scored 20 points against GW or the one that beat #21 Rhode Island?

10:30pm - TNT - Bulls @ Warriors - Chris Webber is expected to start. How will the crowd react to a player they've booed for the past 14 years?

 

Non-sports pick - 8pm - CBS - Survivor: Micronesia - Fans vs. Favorites - I know nothing about this show...I hear it's good? Check out the website.
