Thursday's Review
Thursday opened with tennis, then on to a typical melange of soccer, basketball, hockey, and college football.

Streak favorite John Isner won the first set in Basel, but Frenchman Richard Gasquet played gamely down the stretch to pull out a three-set victory.

In the Streakers biggest Thursday triumph, Villarreal scored early and often on their way to a dominating 4-1 destruction of Lazio.


NCAA Football - Virginia Tech at East Carolina
The Hokies were huge favorites in this game, so we made it a proposition instead: would the Hokies win by more points than the Pirates scored in the second half? The answer was an easy yes as Tech's stifling defense shut out ECU in the second half and gave up only three points all game.

The night closed on an unhappy note for Streakers when the Jazz easily topped the Spurs.

Wednesday's Results
Streakers peeked into the black, but just barely as they completed Wednesday with a 52 percent mark.
