College and Pro Games of the Week: March 11
It’s tourney time.
College: The Big East Championship
When: Saturday, March 12, 9:00 p.m. ET, ESPN
The Big East is going to send about 63 teams to the big dance. So think of this as a little pre-dance dance before the real dancing begins. And yes, I was trying to cram as many “dance”s into that last sentence as possible. And also yes, I’m trying to distract you from noticing that I had to write this before the finalists were announced. Hey, look over there! (Runs to next paragraph.)
Pro: Memphis Grizzlies at Miami Heat
When: Saturday, March 12, 3:30pm ET
Crygate has come and gone, but can’t-finish-gamesgate and stupid-coachinggate might be here longer than anyone wants it to be. I’m not going to jump on the Heat-bashing bandwagon, because I know as soon as the playoffs start, this team is going to start playing defense and make the game-winning layups they seem to lose in March. If you’re a gambling man, buy low on the Heat now because this is the worst they will be for years to come.
