Your guide to the weekend -- SIOC style.

Kajiwaka Classic, Arizona State, 10 a.m.

Three days, 21 teams, and a whole lot of softball. The Sun Devils play host to this early season tournament which features a Saturday afternoon matchup between No. 1 Arizona and No. 3 Texas A&M. ESPY winner and MySpace superstarTaryne Mowatt is expected to be on the hill for the Wildcats.

Celine Dion: That's Just the Woman in Me, CBS, 9 p.m.

Have De Beers, Hallmark, and Godiva brainwashed you into being depressed just because you're single on their artificial, money-minting holiday? Curl up on the couch and take in the soothing sounds of Canada's most famous pop star. It probably won't make you less lonely, but afterwards you'll feel better from the knowledge that she won't be on television again anytime soon.

Men's Basketball, New Jersey Institute of Technology vs. Chicago State, 4 p.m.

At 0-26, NJIT is the lone winless team in Division I and ranked last in the RPI. The good news is that Saturday's home game against the 9-16 Cougars is a great opportunity to finally get into the win column before. There's no word on whether Cam Cameron will be brought in to give the team a pre-game pep talk.

Huun Huur Tu, University of Hawaii, 7:30 p.m.

Bizarre. Unique. Freaky. Unforgettable. Cool. Those are just a few of the words that could be used to describe the music of these Tuvan throat singers. The band includes two former shepherds, and that gives them all kinds of street cred in my book. See for yourself.

NBA Slam Dunk Contest, TNT, 8:30 p.m.

Another NBA dunk contest will come and go without the great James White, but there should be plenty of excitement as Dwight Howard attempts to take the crown from Gerald Green. The most recent rumor is of a Howard reverse dunk with Carlos Arroyo and Hedo Turkoglu riding on his shoulders

Men's Squash Championship, Harvard, Noon

The unstoppable team from Trinity looks to win their 10th straight title. Harvard, Princeton, and Yale are among the seven teams attempting to end the Bantams 180-match winning streak. The smart money is on Trinity.

The Office Stand Up Comedy, Ohio State, 7 p.m.

The gang from Dunder-Mifflin will be back on the air in April, but those who can't wait can see Mindy Kaling (Kelly Kapoor) and Craig Robinson (Darryl) perform at OSU. Those two aren't the only ones who have returned to stand up during the strike. On Saturday B.J. Novak (Ryan) will perform at Northwestern.
