Today's Preview
Six Nations rugby returns, more match play golf, NBA on ESPN, college hoops, and a nightcap in Vancouver.

We start off south of the border where first-round leader Bo Van Pelt takes on Bill Haas in a second round matchup at the Mayakoba Classic.

The Streak keeps the golf coming with two third-round match play contests from the WGC Accenture Match Play Championships. Luke and Ernie tee off at 12:45 p.m.; Geoff Ogilvy and Camilo Villegas face off about an hour later.

Don't worry - we didn't forget the soccer. Friday's match is a German Bundesliga battle between FC Cologne and Arminia Bielefeld. Cologne is at home, so we're giving Bielefeld the draw.


NBA (Detroit at Orlando) - Richard Hamilton vs. Hedo Turkoglu
The slumping Pistons will have a tough time breaking their losing streak at the Magic, so our Streak matchup for this ESPN game is a scoring contest between Rip and Hedo. With Iverson injured in the most recent game, Rip may find himself starting again - either way, he'll get his minutes. For the Magic, Hedo hopes to continue his recent hot shooting.

Yesterday's Results
Houston Rockets' surprisingly easy victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers sent Streakers to a losing day, and also knocked a few users off of the Leaderboard. There's still a host of users threatening to break the 20-win barrier.
