Today's Preview
The usual Monday fare: a retry at Pebble, Bundesliga Two, college basketball, and late-night hockey.

We've added a replay matchup to our board - once again, it's Dustin Johnson versus the field at Pebble Beach. We're not picking a side, but we do have a recommendation - check out the weather before choosing this matchup.

SC Freiburg travels to Mecklenburg-Vorpommern to take on Hansa Rostock in German soccer action. With the superior team on the road, we're playing this one straight up.


NCAA Basketball - No. 4 Pittsburgh Panthers at No. 1 Connecticut Huskies
This Big East showdown may well determine which team (if not both) gets a top seeding in the NCAA Tournament. Connecticut is at home, but must cope with the loss of guard Jerome Dyson. DeJuan Blair and Hasheem Thabeet will battle for post position all night long - the Streak thinks the winner of that fight will lead his team to victory. Catch the action at 7 p.m. on ESPN.

In the second half of ESPN's doubleheader, Texas visits Texas A&M in one of college sports' biggest rivalries. Early Streakers are all over the Longhorns, but we see a tight matchup down to the final minute. One easy prediction - the Conversation around this game will get ugly.

Yesterday's Results
With the cancellation of golf and the shortened Daytona 500, there was an unfinished feel to Sunday's lineup. Streakers started poorly but surged behind two lesser-known Illinois basketball teams. They were back to even going in to the last matchup of the night, and the Canucks victory over the Canadiens sealed the deal as for the second consecutive night, Streakers defeated the Streakmaster.
