Four Corners

Every Monday-Thursday (and occasional weekend games) renowned college basketball expert, Money, will be handicapping the games for you. Picks and thoughts will be posted prior to tip-off, typically by 3:30 pm pst.

Texas is a very talented team. But they are not going to win the national championship. Why does Money feel this way? First of all, there is the one horrific loss to Duke in December by over 30 points. Yes, it was a long time ago, but no team has ever won a national championship while suffering a 30+ point loss that same season. I am not going against that trend. The second reason is their lack of consistency. At times, they appear to be unstoppable, but other times, they seem mediocre. So much so, that they lose to Oklahoma state. I don’t care what the situation was in Stillwater, or how many pills Eddie Sutton is popping, Texas should not lose to OSU.

They have an extremely talented team and very well could make the final four. You just won’t see Money picking them as the national champion in any of his pools this year.

Money's trip to the Bank: (Money's Cash cow to date - 35 wins, 26 losses). The team in ALL CAPS is my pick.

NOTRE DAME +13.5 @ Connecticut
I hate betting against this team, but this line and situation forces me to. Notre Dame desperately needs this game to qualify for the big east tournament. Uconn will be thinking about revenge and Villanova on Sunday

ALABAMA +8 @ Arkansas
This line is too high. Both teams are playing well. This will be very close.
