Chicago sports fans now turn their attention to the Chicago Bulls, who are 16 games over .500 for the first time since ... well, almost every "since" this year is "since the Michael Jordan era" and this is no exception. The Bulls are in action tonight; we can also focus on the Blackhawks, who play tomorrow and then are off through the NHL All-Star Game next Sunday.â†µâ†µ
6 p.m., ESPN: College basketball, No. 16 Notre Dame at No. 4 Pittsburgh.
6:30 p.m., Versus: NHL, Rangers at Capitals.â†µâ†µ
7 p.m., CSN Chicago: NBA, Bulls vs. Bucks at the United Center. After today, the Bulls take a breather -- they're off until Friday.â†µâ†µ
8 p.m., ESPN: College basketball, Baylor at Kansas State. Not a game of particular interest to Chicago-area fans (unless you went to one of those schools), nor are either of these teams ranked; it's the second half of ESPN's "Big Monday".â†µ
