Your Atlanta sports TV schedule. All times ET.â†µ
UAB Blazers at Georgia Bulldogs, 7, Fox Sports South: The Dawgs are probably going to play a Conference USA team in their bowl, and here's a pretty good one for some hoops. How slick was that? Not at all?â†µ
Philadelphia 76ers at Atlanta Hawks, 7:30, SportSouth: The Hawks are suddenly in third place in the Eastern Conference after a four-game winning streak. Minus Joe Johnson for the rest of the month and then some, a visit from the Sixers should sustain the momentum until the Miami Heat come to town tomorrow night. Got the feeling all these jokes we make about the Heat are gonna seem a lot less funny the next day.â†µ
Kansas St. Wildcats at Washington St. Huskies, 11, Fox Sports South: The Big 12/Pac-10 Hardwood Series, a
poor western man's ACC/Big 10 Challenge, continues. Did you know this thing drags on for almost an entire month?
Miami RedHawks at No. 25 Northern Illinois Huskies, 7, ESPN2: It's the MAC Championship Game, so show some respect. NIU has been a [checks stats] juggernaut [checks definition of juggernaut], winning all but one conference game by more than a score.â†µ
Illinois Fighting Illini at Fresno St. Bulldogs, 10:15, ESPN2: Championship weekend, for some, is like high school graduation. Some are preparing for the biggest days of their lives, and others are tying up loose ends by hurrying to get that one last credit it on time, which sucks if it's a science class because then you need a lab partner who's also waited all this time to wrap up his or her schedule, and hey there Fresno, what are you doing at the last possible minute?
