3 - Your Quad City Mallards extended their win streak to eight in-a-row with a win over Cincinnati last night. And we're getting knee-deep into high school basketball regionals. All the details when we do That Sports Thing at around 7:35am on The Morning KIIK Start.

4 - Stars of the TV show The Big Bang Theory could pocket $1 million per episode under a new two-year renewal contract. Details on That Hollywood Thing about 8:35am on FM 104.9.
