Kraft Nabisco Championship
After suffering through a winless 2007, Annika Sorenstam (right) has already got a win and three top fives in '08. It could be a wet weekend for Sorenstam at the season's first major, where the winner traditionally celebrates by jumping into the pond next to the 18th green. Make that another wet weekend; she's won it three times.

The Morgan Lacrosse Story
In the 1970s Morgan State became the first—and so far, the only—historically black university to field a lacrosse team. This 60-minute documentary revisits the Bears' program. The Division II team disbanded in 1975, but not before pulling one of the sport's biggest upsets: snapping the 28-game winning streak of D-I powerhouse Washington and Lee.

Sony Ericsson Open
Defending champ Novak Djokovic got bounced in the second round in Miami, which is good news for Roger Federer (left) and Rafael Nadal. Djokovic beat both at the ATP Masters Series in Canada last August, and since then he is 4--2 against them. His loss leaves Federer and Nadal on a collision course for today's final.
Rays at Yankees
It takes some pretty bad blood for teams to brawl in the preseason, but Tampa Bay and New York emptied their overflowing benches last month. Their first series of the regular season coincides with the return of two combatants, the Yankees' Melky Cabrera and Shelley Duncan (right), who were suspended for the season's first three games.

Nets at Cavaliers
Missing the playoffs is nothing to be embarrassed about out West, where a 50-win team could be left out. In the East, though, it's mortifying. New Jersey is hoping to avoid a summer of shame, but it won't be easy. The Nets are two games out of eighth. Says center Josh Boone, "Every game is the biggest game of the year at this point."

College All-Star Game
March was maddening for Duke and Georgetown, as both were upset in the second round of the NCAA tournament. But senior guards DeMarcus Nelson (left) of the Blue Devils and Jonathan Wallace (right) of the Hoyas will still be in San Antonio, capping off their college careers in the 47th annual showcase. Both are borderline pro prospects, but if the NBA doesn't work out, they'll be O.K. Nelson will graduate with a degree in cultural anthropology, and Wallace has been accepted by Georgetown Law School.
