"What to watch in sports" Weekend Edition

Its valentine weekend and unless you are caught up with your boo, there will be plenty of sporting action going on over the next 3 days. With the unusual springtime weather we are having in the DMV area comes the start of training camp for baseball players and steroid scandals. This HGH thing is getting out of control but I digress because winter is still here and baseball doesn't start opening day until April so lets focus on basketball.

The NBA all-star weekend will be shown on TNT and ESPN starting tonight, so watch out for the slam dunk contests, rookies vs sophmores and the big game of stars on Sunday. In college we have some pretty big matchups like G'Town vs Syracuse and UCLA at Arizona. The full run down is below.
