The Best In Sports In 7 Days

<b>Thursday, Feb. 17</b>

NBA basketball, San Antonio at Chicago (7 p.m., TNT): The Spurs are the NBA's best team this season, but the Bulls are tough to beat at home.

Friday, Sept. 18
College baseball, Belhaven Invitational, McKendree at Belhaven (4 p.m., Smith-Wills Stadium, Jackson): The Blazers play in the first game of the two-day tournament.

Grambling at Jackson State (5:30 p.m., Jackson, 620 AM): The Tigers need to get on a roll heading into the SWAC Tournament. ... High school basketball, MAIS Class AAA Tournament championship games, girls 2:15 p.m., boys 7:15 p.m. (Madison-Ridgeland Academy, Madison): These are the ultimate games ... until next week's Overall Tournament.

Sunday, Feb. 20
NBA basketball, NBA All-Star Game (6 p.m., TNT): The NBA's best meet in the 60th edition of the All-Star Game. We're still waiting to see some defense.

NHL hockey, Washington at Pittsburgh (6:30 p.m., Versus): Things always get chippy when the Capitals and Penguins meet.

Tuesday, Feb. 22
Men's college basketball, Ole Miss at South Carolina (6 p.m., Columbia, S.C., ESPNU, 97.3 FM): The Gamecocks proved against Georgia that they could cut a big lead. They can't beat Georgia, but they can come back from a big deficit.

Wednesday, Feb. 23
Men's college basketball, LSU at Mississippi State (8 p.m., Starkville, CSS, 105.9 FM): I would say this should be a breather for the Bulldogs, but remember what happened at Auburn.
