What we'll see
The Miami Heat's Big Three of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh will all be starters for the Eastern Conference when it takes on the West in the NBA All-Star Game at Houston. The Heat are the first team with three All-Star starters since Magic Johnson, James Worthy and A.C. Green of the Los Angeles Lakers started for the West in 1990. (8 p.m., TNT)
The road to the Sweet Sixteen tips off with district tournament play beginning all across Kentucky. Manual's girls and Louisville Trinity's boys enter as defending state champions.
The ninth-ranked Kentucky women's basketball team makes its first-ever stop in College Station, Texas, to take on No. 11 Texas A&M in a nationally televised "Big Monday" showdown. The Aggies are tied with Tennessee for first place in the SEC at 10-1. The Cats (9-2) need this one to stay within striking distance of defending their league title. (7 p.m., ESPN2). Stick around for the nightcap of the women's doubleheader, which features No. 1 Baylor against No. 3 UConn (9 p.m., ESPN2)
Kentucky's men's basketball season has rapidly descended from talk of a Final Four, to discussion of the NCAA bubble, to concern after Saturday's humiliation at Tennessee whether the Cats will win another game this season. It's a good thing for UK that players' memories are usually shorter than fans'. Calipari's troops try to climb back on the horse with home games against Vanderbilt on Wednesday (8 p.m., WKYT-27) and Missouri on Saturday (9 p.m., ESPN). Saturday's contest comes with a visit from ESPN's GameDay. (Rupp Arena doors open at 8 a.m., event begins at 9 a.m. with a live broadcast of SportsCenter.)
The first 50-point race of the Kentucky Derby prep season plays out in the $400,000 Fountain of Youth Stakes at Gulfstream. The Todd Pletcher-trained Violence, who is undefeated in three career starts, figures to be the class of what is expected to be a small field, as top contenders Shanghai Bobby and Itsmyluckyday take aim at the Florida Derby in March.
