Today's Preview
We celebrate "Rivalry Week" by listing five down and dirty college hoops matchups.

If it's a weekday morning, there's probably soccer -- Monday's tilt is an English League One affair between Leeds United and Millwall. Leeds is at home, so Millwall gets the "Draw."

In our "Backyard Brawl" special, we've matched two star Big East forwards against each other in a more points contest. Da'Sean Butler of West Virginia takes on DeJuan Blair of Pittsburgh.

North Carolina hosts Duke in our women's game special. Both teams are ranked in the top 10, and both would love to grab control of first place in the ACC.


NCAAB (Kansas Jayhawks at Missouri Tigers) -- Sherron Collins vs. DeMarre Carroll
Kansas floor general Collins will need his scoring shoes on to win this points only matchup against Carroll, who has quietly been having an All-Big 12 worthy season. DeMarre scored 31 points on Saturday, leading the Tigers to their 20th win of the season.

Yesterday's Results
Streakers entered Sunday trying to break a five-day losing streak. They fell behind early when Man U's matchup with West Ham produced only one goal, but fought their way back to nearly even behind the Washington Huskies and the Seton Hall Pirates. It all came down to the final matchup of the day, and over 94 percent of Streakers cast their lot with the Utah Jazz. It seemed like the right play with Andris "Latvian Steel" Biedrins sidelined by an injured ankle, but the Warriors gutted it out with a smaller lineup that took control of the game in the third quarter and never looked back, and Streakers ended up on the wrong side of the 40 percent mark.
