  • US men's college basketball:
    • Tennessee 86, (5) Florida 76.
      Almost as notable as Tennessee's upset win was a special appearance by Lady Vols head coach Pat Summitt. After Tennessee men's head coach Bruce Pearl painted his chest orange for a key Lady Vols game earlier in the season against No. 1 Duke, Summitt returns the favor by dressing in a cheerleader outfit and helping the Tennessee cheerleaders lead cheers during the first media timeout.
    • BYU 62, (25) Air Force 58

  • Ice hockey (NHL):
    • A late hit on Buffalo Sabres co-captain Chris Drury leads to a huge fight between them and the Ottawa Senators. At some point or another, all twelve players on the ice were fighting. A total of 100 penalty minutes were dispensed against eight different players, including five game misconducts. Three Sabres and two Senators were ejected, including both teams' goalies. The Sabres ultimately won the game, 6–5 in a shootout. (ESPN)

  • Auto racing:
    • NASCAR NEXTEL Cup:

  • Auto racing:
    • NASCAR punished Michael Waltrip Racing's No. 55 Toyota Camry driven by the owner with both their crew chief indefinitely suspended along with their vice president of competition, a fine of $100,000 (US$) and a loss of both 100 owner and driver points.

On Tuesday, the crew chiefs for Kenseth and Kahne were suspended for four races, fined $50,000 (US$) and both teams and their drivers will start the season fifty points in the red. Additionally, two other Evernham teams, those driven by Elliott Sadler (#19) and Scott Wimmer (#10) had their crew chiefs suspended for two races, were fined $25,000 and begin the year 25 points in the hole.
