Saturday look-in
With the morning soccer cancelled, it's a day of basketball, hockey, and playoff football.


NCAAB - Connecticut Huskies at Georgetown Hoyas
Today's featured matchup starts early as these two traditional Big East basketball powers tip off at noon. It's a contrast in styles: the Huskies will try to push the pace where the Hoyas want to slow it down, and the game will probably go to the team that ends up controlling the tempo. Last year the Hoyas peaked with their early win in Hartford, but then lost nine out of twelve games in what was ultimately a disappointing season. The bookmakers have installed Georgetown as a small favorite in this one - the Streak sees the game going the other way, as Connecticut's size will keep Greg Monroe from dictating the inside play.

Leaderboard check
The magic number has made it up to 16, but that's still only four days of yeoman's work for a Streaker on a roll. On the monthly leaderboard, one entry has jumped out to a surprising 3-game lead, but history suggests that it'll soon be back with the pack.
