MONDAY 12/4
?PGA Q School Final Round
GOLF 2:30 PM
No Lehmans, no Tigers, no Weirs—oh, my! At PGA West in La Quinta, Calif., you will see Casey Martin and a bunch of good-but-human golfers, most of whom you haven't heard of, playing for their PGA Tour cards in what may be the most intense round of the year. After surviving the second stage of qualifying last month, Tommy Tolles, who finished 180th on this year's money list ($142,248) and who has competed in the Masters and the U.S. Open, articulated what all Q schoolers know: "This is the toughest tournament I've ever played in." Besides Tolles, other recognizable names hoping to get back on Tour include Robert Gamez, Jim McGovern and Frank Nobilo.

TUESDAY 12/5
? 76ers at Lakers
TBS 10:30 PM
Can radio slay the video star? Allen Iverson, controversial hip-hop singer, takes on Shaquille O'Neal, Hollywood's erstwhile Genie with an Attitude. Iverson sounded few false notes in leading the Sixers to 10 straight wins to start the season, but will he play in the Lakers' arena?

WEDNESDAY 12/6
? Florida at Michigan State
ESPN 7 PM
The Spartans advanced unimpeded through the Gators' full-court defense to win last April's NCAA men's championship game 89-76. This season senior guard Charlie Bell is ringing in the post- Mateen Cleaves era for No. 4 Michigan State, while No. 11 Florida has moved to a full-Nelson attack, with sophomore guard Brett Nelson having dished out five assists in the Gators' 2000-01 opener, an 85-70 win over Florida State on Nov. 17

Don't Miss
SATURDAY 12/2
? Oklahoma vs. Kansas State
ABC 8 P.M.
This Big 12 championship game from Kansas City's Arrrowhead Stadium is as close to a playoff as you'll get in college football: If the top-ranked Sooners (11-0) lose, their national title hopes will vanish, and the nation will turn its eyes (yet again) to Florida. Seventh-ranked Kansas State (10-2) has been eyeing a rematch since losing 41-31 to Oklahoma on Oct. 14. (Above, Sooners defensive back Torrance Marshall stops David Allen.) The Wildcats will hope for a big game from senior defensive end Chris Johnson, who had four sacks in the 28-24 win over Missouri on Nov. 18. Oklahoma may have a Heisman candidate at quarterback, but don't believe the Heupel—the Sooners can be beaten.

ALL TIMES EASTERN. SCHEDULES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE.
