Lee vs Ramirez matchup cancelled updated at 6:13 p.m. ET
Hanley Ramirez did not start for the Dominican Republic in Sunday's WBC game, so the total bases matchup has been voided.

Today's Preview
We hope you remembered to set your clock forward! Soccer, the end of the Honda Classic, an intriguing format in the bowling, lots of hockey and basketball. Also, a couple more player matchups for the WBC.

The PBA Buckeye State Eliminator begins at 10 a.m. on ESPN. All four finalists will bowl the first game; after the low scorer is dropped the three bowlers remaining will repeat the process. At that point the two left standing will have a one-game playoff for the championship. We've split the bowlers into two duos - this matchup could go final before the final game.


NBA (Phoenix at San Antonio) -- Shaquille O'Neal vs. Tim Duncan
The two best NBA big men of the last twenty years go head-to-head in the scoring matchup. While Tim has the higher average for the season, Shaq has stepped it up since the injury to Amare Stoudemire.

The Streak lists another scoring contest in the 4 p.m. slot - this time it's college teammates in perhaps the best rivalry of them all: Kyle Singler and Gerald Henderson of Duke take on Tyler Hansbrough and Danny Green of North Carolina.

Yesterday's Results
A down day for Streakers, and particularly for the Leaderboard, where over half of the top fifty went down at some point on Saturday. The main culprit was Maryland, who for the second season in a row lost a crucial game to Virginia. Streakers ended up at 42 percent.
