Things just are not going UNC's way, especially for Tyler Hansbrough

Wizards' Jamison May Not Play Tonight, UNC Slumping at 2:56 p.m. ET
The Washington Post revealed that Wizards forward Antawn Jamison missed Sunday's team practice because of a right knee strain. He is listed as questionable for tonight's game. If he does not play, our Streak matchup will be ruled as a push.
Also, The StreakMaster cannot believe a team as talented as North Carolina lost another ACC game. An 0-2 start in the league is not what anyone expected but, hopefully they can turn it around before it is too late.

Today's Preview
The Streak slows down on Monday, as does most of the sports world. There's soccer in the morning, a couple NBA props, and some hockey - but we suspect the most popular matchups of the day will involve the ESPN college hoops broadcasts in the evening.

Our day begins at 2:45 PM when Rimini visits Pisa in an Italy Serie B matchup. We're giving the road team the draw, but Streakers so far are leaning (haha) in the other direction.

At 7 PM we have two different basketball propositions. For those watching the ESPN Big East game between Notre Dame and Louisville, we have a long-distance shootout. Notre Dame has slightly more 3-pointers for the season, but the Cardinals are at home. For those who prefer the NBA, there's a scoring matchup between Michael Redd and Antawn Jamison to select from instead.

NCAA Basketball: Texas Longhorns at Oklahoma Sooners
The Sooners have the better record and are at home, but Texas has played the tougher schedule to date. They've also had Oklahoma's number recently, having won the last six times the two teams have met. Blake Griffin looks to improve his Player of the Year credentials, while the Horns' A.J. Abrams is trying to regain his shooting stroke.

Our limited slate finishes up in Los Angeles, where we have a total-goals offering for the Lightning-Kings hockey game. Both teams are near the bottom of the NHL in goals scored.

Yesterday's Results
Streakers were up and down, finishing on a positive note when UCLA came back to defeat the USC Trojans in the final game of the night. Still, the Leaderboard took a heavy hit when the UNC Tar Heels lost to the Wake Forest Demon Deacons in a classic ACC battle.
