Today's Preview
Not quite the cornucopia of yesterday, but Friday still has a wide variety of sports to choose from. For the first time, we've got a boxing match offered straight up -- and you can watch it on ESPN2.

It's back to the difficult Torrey Pines South Course for the morning golf matchup. Red-hot Camilo Villegas takes on Padraig Harrington. Padraig won the last two majors in 2008, but finished back in the pack at the US Open, which was held at this same venue.

Bundesliga action kicks off at 2:30 p.m. when Hertha Berlin visits Arminia Bielefeld. The online books have this match dead even, and so do we -- if it ends in a tie, it'll be a "push" for both sides.

It's a light night of college hoops, but the Streak digs deep when it needs to. Metro Atlantic mediocrities Fairfield and Canisius tip off at 7 p.m. The game can be seen live in its entirety on ESPNU.

If you're more of an Ivy Leaguer, you can pick the winner of the Brown-Dartmouth scuffle instead. We predict that NBA scouts will not be at this game.

Friday Night Fights showcases a light heavyweight contest between Chris Henry and Yusaf Mack. Neither boxer minds a good brawl, so this should be entertaining from start to finish. The ESPN2 telecast starts at 9 p.m.; the time for this matchup may be adjusted depending upon the length of the undercard battle.


NBA (Golden State at Phoenix): Stephen Jackson vs. Amare Stoudemire
This is the ESPN night game, and it's expected to be a high-scoring affair. On Wednesday, the Warriors scored the upset against these same Suns as Jackson had a triple-double; Golden State fans were singing: When your power forward is on the floor, but he can't seem to score, that's Amare. Tonight's game is back in Phoenix, and Stoudemire and the gang will be out for revenge. Streakers can choose either Jackson or Stoudemire to score more points.

Yesterday's Results
It wasn't pretty (though it was pretty bad). Streakers were under 40 percent as the Lakers and Badgers cleared out much of the Leaderboard. Additionally, in what's becoming a regular habit in both football and basketball, the Cal Bears defeated the Washington Huskies.
