The college game or the pros? Another dilemma looms for basketball fans, as the NCAA Tournament continues on CBS, while Michael Jordan makes his first home-court appearance since coming out of retirement in an NBA telecast on cable.

* "NCAA Tournament" (7:30 p.m.-12:35 a.m., Channel 13) -- Tonight's double-header concluding the regional semifinals offers Wake Forest and Oklahoma in the East, followed by Virginia and Kansas from the Midwest. CBS.

* "VR.5" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., Channel 45) -- Continuing the development of this new spring series, Sydney (Lori Singer) finds things are not always what they seem when she saves a Committee employee from suicide. Fox.

* "Sister, Sister" (8:30 p.m.-9 p.m., Channel 2) -- The series takes up a new day and time, as sister act Tia and Tamera (portrayed by -- who else? -- actresses Tia and Tamera Mowry) play at marriage in a school assignment on family planning. ABC.

* "Step By Step" (9 p.m.-9:30 p.m., Channel 2) -- Trivia test: Can you name John Astin's first TV series? (No, it wasn't "The Addams Family.") The veteran actor, frequently seen as a loopy dad to Harry Anderson on "Night Court," guests stars in this repeat episode as a loopy surrogate father to Cody (Sasha Mitchell). Trivia answer: "I'm Dickens, He's Fenster," with Marty Ingels, on ABC in 1962-1963. ABC.

* "20/20" (10 p.m.-11 p.m., Channel 2) -- Bob Brown travels to Italy to catch up on an American family struck by tragedy last fall, when 7-year-old Nicholas Green was killed by bandits. Reginald and Margaret Green, and their 5-year-old daughter, Eleanor, have been honored for their decision to donate their son's organs to Italian patients. ABC.

Cable

* "NBA Basketball" (8 p.m.-10 p.m., TNT) -- The cable network bounced a scheduled repeat of its own original movie, "Kingfish: Story of Huey P. Long," to show the Chicago Bulls/Orlando Magic game from Chicago. Why? Newly un-retired Bulls star Michael Jordan meets the Magic's Shaquille O'Neal.

* "Spring Break Rocks" (9 p.m.-10 p.m., MTV) -- On the first full day of its 10th year of annual coverage of college students' vacation activities -- oddly based this year from Lake Havasu City, Ariz. -- the rock network covers the opening night of the new Van Halen concert tour, from Pensacola, Fla. Comedian Jon Stewart interviews band members backstage.
