What to Watch: Thursday

7pm ET - CBS – NCAA Tournament: #5 Purdue vs. #1 Connecticut (7:07pm)/#4 Xavier vs. #1 Pittsburgh (7:27pm) - UConn better make their run this year because who knows what type of sanctions they could be facing. Pitt hasn't looked very good in their first two games but all that matters is they're still alive.

8pm - TNT – NBA: Heat @ Bulls - LeBron James will probably win the MVP but Dwyane Wade has been playing as well as anyone.

9:30pm - CBS - NCAA Tournament: #3 Missouri vs. #2 Memphis (9:37pm)/#3 Villanova vs. #2 Duke (9:57pm) - I'm picking the Tigers to win the early game; Duke looks to reach the Elite Eight for the first time since 2004.

10:30pm - TNT – NBA: Suns @ Blazers - The Suns have won six in a row to get back in the playoff picture but need another one vs. the Blazers to continue to close the gap.

Non-sports pick - 9pm - The Office - Maybe Michael quitting will shake things up a bit. I'm really trying to stay on board with this show but I think it's well past its prime.
