Saturday March 19th
Everton vs Arsenal – 5:45am NBCSN: You’ll be watching enough basketball to make your eyes pop out. Why not change it up and watch some top flight soccer?
Wichita State vs Miami – 9:10am CBS: The Shockers just seem to have the same players every year and every year make a run. Miami is a tough nut to crack. Very underrated team.
Pittsburgh Penguins at Philadelphia Flyers – 10am NHL.TV: These two are conference, division and in-state rivals. Add in the fact that the Flyers are playing some pretty good hockey right now which means Sid and the boys will have their work cut out for them.
Indiana vs Kentucky -12:15pm CBS: This seems like it should be a Final Four meeting and not a 5 vs 4 game in the second round.
Detroit Red Wings at Florida Panthers – 4pm NHLN: The Red Wings are on the outside looking in right now while the Panthers are looking to maintain their spot atop the Atlantic division.
Virginia vs Butler – 4:10pm TBS: The real first chance for a number 1 seed to be taken down. Butler is Butler and they know how to knock off big dogs in the tournament.
Oklahoma City Thunder at Indiana Pacers – 4pm NBA League Pass: The Thunder and Pacers are both bound for the playoffs and both have a whole lot of talent to show off.
Cleveland Cavaliers at Miami Heat – 4:30pm NBA League Pass: LeBron heads back to South Beach. Always fun to see and both lead their respective divisions.
Kansas vs UCONN – 4:45pm CBS: The Jayhawks should be nervous about this one. UCONN is one of the hottest teams in the country and know what it takes to win it all.
Golden State Warriors at San Antonio Spurs – 5:30pm ABC: The team with the best chance of knocking off the Warriors might just be the Spurs. They just have to prove it now.
Boston Bruins at LA Kings – 7:30pm NHL.TV: Like we said earlier, this is a tough, late season road trip for the boys from bean-town.
LA Galaxy vs San Jose Earthquakes – 7:30pm MLS.TV: The Quakes are 2-0 to start a season for the first time ever. The Galaxy will be ready as these two revive the California Classico.
Sunday March 20th
Manchester City vs Manchester United – 9am NBC: What an awesome game to start a Sunday.
Iowa vs Villanova – 9:10am CBS: Villanova may be a higher seed but Iowa has shown all year long that they can knock off anybody at anytime.
VCU vs Oklahoma – 2:15pm CBS: VCU is a team you never want to play in this time of year regardless if Shaka Smart is no longer their coach. They know what it takes to wreak havoc.
Washington Capitals at Pittsburgh Penguins – 3pm NBCSN: Two playoff teams in the Eastern Conference measuring themselves out and two of the biggest stars in the NHL in Sidney Crosby and Alex Ovechkin.
Sporting KC vs Toronto FC – 4pm FS1: A whole lot of talent on display and one, if not THE best environment in all of MLS. Oh yeah, Dom Dwyer is on fire.
Minnesota Wild at Chicago Blackhawks – 5:30pm NBCSN: The Wild are hanging on by the skin of their teeth to that last playoff slot out west. Jonathan Toews and the Blackhawks could care less.
