What's On Television: March 4, 2012

Football's over but there are still those lesser sports to watch. If you find yourself stuck with nothing to do, you can grab the remote and tune into one of the following games on the old boob tube.

College Basketball: No. 1 Kentucky Wildcats at No. 13 Florida Gators (Noon, CBS)
The Wildcats (29-1) are likely going to be a No. 1 seed in the upcoming NCAA tournament. They'll be playing a solid Florida team (22-8) on the road. UK is favored to win but it could turn out to be a great game and a preview of an upcoming NCAA tournament game.

NHL: Boston Bruins at New York Rangers (12:30 PM, NBC)
The Rangers (89 points) and Bruins (79 points) are one-two in the Eastern Conference and the last time these two teams played, Henrik Lundqvist generated 42 saves in 3-0 shutout over the Bruins in mid-February.

NBA: New York Knicks at Boston Celtics (1:00 PM, ABC)
Rajon Rondo is the only player that can offer the Celtics (18-17) anything of value in return for a trade and we've learned this week that Boston is aggressively looking for a trade partner and a good deal. In the meantime the Knicks (18-18) continue to position themselves up the postseason ladder.

PGA: The Honda Classic Day Four (1:00 PM, NBC)
It's the final day of The Honda Classic. Rory McIlroy is sitting at -11 and Tom Gillis and Harris English are just behind at -9. Tiger Woods, who is two under par will have to have one hell of a day to come back and win this one... either that or hope that a whole bunch of people just don't show up.

NASCAR Racing: Subway Fresh Fit 500 (2:30 PM, FOX)
Mark Martin starts on the pole and Regan Smith is already in the top-five. Can the unexpected in lesser equipment outpace the Hendrick or Roush cars? (the answer is actually no, but you know)

NBA: Miami Heat at Los Angeles Lakers (3:30 PM, ABC)
LeBron James and the Miami Heat (28-8) against Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers (22-14), who can ask for more? But more importantly, we find out if someone with the Lakers becomes Enforcer to respond to Dwayne Wade's rough foul during the defense-less NBA All-Star Game.

College Basketball: No. 11 Ohio State Buckeyes at No. 5 Michigan State Spartans (4:00 PM, CBS)
Here are two teams that have a great shot at making it a long way into the 2012 NCAA tournament. Michigan State is favored at home but Ohio State will likely make a good game out of it. Both teams have 24-6 records heading into their regular season finales.

NBA: Chicago Bulls at Philadelphia 76ers (7:00 PM, ESPN)
The Bulls (30-8), not Miami, currently leads the Eastern Conference and the 76eres (22-15), led by Lou Williams, Jrue Holiday, Thaddeus Young and Andre Iguodala, sit 7.5 games behind. If you have no reason to watch this game, just sit in awe at some of the things Derrick Rose can do.

NBA: Denver Nuggets at San Antonio Spurs (9:30 PM, ESPN)
Everyone continues to talk about how old the Spurs (25-11) are, yet they're one of the hottest teams in the NBA no thanks to contributions from younger players like Gary Neal, DeJuan Blair, Tiago Splitter and Danny Green. And that's not to mention Tony Parker, having one of his best seasons, at the "old age" of 29. Denver (20-17) on the other hand is holding onto the eighth seed as they've hit a major wall, only winning five of 15 games in February and losing 12 of their past 17.
