Saturday's Best

A daily look at the best of the local sports scene ...

Plenty to do in playoff time. Just a matter of what you want to see.

-- The UConn men's basketball team is playing for playoff position when it plays host to Notre Dame at 2 p.m. at Gampel Pavilion on ESPN/espn2. It's senior day, and junior Kemba Walker will also be honored. I have no problem with this for one reason: Walker is on pace to graduate in May. If he was not, then I would think it was wrong. But if a player is academically on pace to graduate, then he has earned the right to be honored on senior day.

-- The Quinnipiac hockey team looks to advance in the ECAC Hockey playoffs when it plays host to Brown at 7 p.m. at TD Bank Sports Center. The Bobcats have a 1-0 lead in the best-of-three series. Game 3 would be Sunday at Hamden.
