What You Need to Know

The Wiz look to recover from a manic week and too much energy tonight against the Sonics, who still won't have Rashard Lewis, have lost 14 straight on the road and have a coach openly talking about getting fired. Actually, things sound sorta disastrous with the Sonics, and Supersonicsoul is already writing Bob Hill's obit. Also, Gilbertology finds a way to buy the Gil-Zero urban edition, Free Darko comes to the V.C., the AP believes Gil

is definitely in the three-point contest, and dwil misses Jamison.

(Former) Local No. 1 Va. Tech might not have an at-large berth sewn up yet, here's a slightly dated look at Local No. 3 VCU, Local No. 5 Virginia might have the best path to the ACC's top seed (plus Solomon Tat is providing great D and a student says it's officially time to get excited), and Local No. 9 Loyola loves the month of February. Also, the Terps women get their swag back and have fun again, as BC has a dreadful shooting night and becomes the basketball version of "fuzzy slippers."

The Caps finally win a shootout against the battered Islanders. Olie hopes yesterday was a sign, Ovechkin is relieved and earns plaudits, and players wonder why the glass kept malfunctioning.

Also, Ryan Zimmerman got to know Manny Acta while playing the field last year and is friends with a surfer or something. And a lot of people wrote about the Super Bowl.
