This week in sports should all but wrap up the NBA Finals, easily the most exciting thing going down right now — unless your a soccer fan.

With only two games scheduled this week, the door is open for other sporting events to fill the void. The top two this week are the NCAA's College World Series and the WNBA. Granted, they are not the NFL or the NBA, but if you are looking for hard working athletes doing their thing in a competitive atmosphere, then check them out along with the traditional Golf, baseball and NASCAR.

 

Monday

(MLB) Atlanta at NY Yankees 7 pm ESPN

(NCAA) NCAA College World Series-Arkansas vs South Carolina 9 pm ESPN2

 

Tuesday

(NCAA) NCAA College World Series- UCLA vs. Florida State 8 pm ESPN

(NBA) Oklahoma City at Miami 9 pm abc– This is easily the most decisive game in the NBA Finals. With the Heat up two games to one, the Thunder simply cannot afford to go down another game or it will soon be lights out for them. Expect this game to get very chippy and very intense — a must watch for sports fans.
