Miami Heat at Dallas Mavericks, 8, ABC: Having stolen the 2011 NBA Finals' home court advantage, the Mavs have a chance to make everybody point and laugh at Miami really hard, which is the kind of thing that usually makes Miami do stuff that makes everybody point and laugh at them.
Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets vs. Austin Peay Governors, 3, CSS: Rematch Saturday begins when the Jackets attempt to take down the Govs via not leaving 470,000 men stranded on base. A Jackets win would send them on to play Mississippi State in the Atlanta Regional's night game. Let me tell you, listening to Mississippi State and Southern Miss coaches talk to each other in fearless Mississippi accents was the most Mississippi moment of my life, and that note has nothing to do with anything.
Georgia Bulldogs vs. Creighton Bluejays, 4, ESPN3: The Diamond Dawgs attempt to draw strength from their Divot Dawgs brethren, who'll be wrapping up their 2011 golf championships showdown with defending champ Augusta State round the time this one gets underway in Corvallis. Rematch Saturday continues.
