On Saturday, March 1, at 10:30 p.m., FOX's Sun Sports, the regional television home of the Miami HEAT, will debut a new episode of ''Inside the HEAT'' upon conclusion of the HEAT vs. Orlando Magic game. Titled ''Shane Battier,'' this special edition episode will take viewers inside the home of the 13-year NBA veteran as the versatile HEAT forward reflects on basketball, life and giving back.

From back-to-back championships, to a memorable 27-game win streak, the Duke University graduate is always striving to be the best player on the court. Off the court, fans will hear about his love of broadcasting, his unique relationship halfway across the world in China, his desire to keep in touch with fans and his willingness to do anything for a good cause. We explore his "œBattier Take Charge Foundation,"€ which provides college scholarships to deserving youth, and all that goes into raising money via a golf event and karaoke event.

Finally, viewers will get an inside glimpse of "South Beach Battioke," a fun-filled evening where the entire Miami HEAT team came together to sing for a good cause. To learn more about Battier's foundation, visit
