What To Watch: Fri. 3/25 – Sun. 3/27

All times are Pacific.

Friday March 25th

Virginia vs Iowa State – 4:10pm CBS: ISU can score points in a hurry but UVA can lock just about anyone down with ACC Player of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year in Malcolm Brogdon.

NY Islanders at Tampa Bay Lightning – 4:30pm NHL.TV: The Islanders are only two points behind the Lightning for the lead in the Atlantic but those two points put them in a Wild Card slot.

Memphis Grizzlies at San Antonio Spurs – 5:30pm  NBA League Pass: While the Warriors are getting all the press, the Spurs have lost 11 games all year and have yet to lose at home this season.

North Carolina vs Indiana – 7pm TBS: Two teams who have enough talent to win it all and are both playing with a desire to do so. Let’s not forget that they are two of the perennial powers in college basketball.

Guatemala vs USA – 7pm beIN Sports: Let’s get this 2018 World Cup Qualifying underway shall we?

 

Saturday March 26th

Minnesota Wild at Colorado Avalanche – Noon NHL.TV: The Wild have had the Avs number over the last few seasons. Now the Wild hold the last playoff spot but are only a point ahead of the Avs. This one should be as close as you can get to playoff hockey during the regular season.

Oklahoma vs Oregon -3pm CBS: Oregon is the only Pac-12 team to make any noise in the tournament this year. Oklahoma is probably still the favorite with Buddy Hield leading the way.

Florida Panthers at Tampa Bay Lightning – 4pm NHL.TV: Tough back to back games for the Lightning. Their in-state rival is also the team they are battling for first place against.

St Louis Blues at Washington Capitals – 4pm NHL.TV: The Caps may have locked up everything under the sun this regular season but the Blues still have some work to do. This could be a legitimate preview of the Stanley Cup Final.

San Antonio Spurs at Oklahoma City Thunder – 5pm NBA TV: When these two play, it’s always something you want to tune in for.

Villanova vs Kansas -5:45pm CBS: If these teams play like they did in their Sweet 16 match-ups then we are in for a real treat.

 

Sunday March 27th

Virginia vs Syracuse – 3pm TBS: One of two ACC match-ups for the Elite 8. UVA defeated Syracuse in the only match-up between the two this year. Is one day enough for UVA to prepare for the Syracuse zone defense?

LUNDQVISTPittsburgh Penguins at NY Rangers – 4:30pm NBCSN: It’s not Sunday unless NBC is broadcasting a game featuring the Penguins or Rangers.

North Carolina vs Notre Dame – 5:45pm TBS: The second ACC match-up in the Elite 8 features two teams that split their season series (each winning the game on their home floor) but in different places. Notre Dame just got by Wisconsin in the Sweet 16 due to Wisconsin forgetting the fundamentals of basketball in the last two minutes. Meanwhile UNC is rolling right now. They might be the hottest team in the country.
