Did Somebody Say Salsa?

Things are starting to get Spicy with hoops. We all know that only 4 teams are really complete at this time, then after that any one of 20 teams can make a run.

In case you haven't been following, these are the four teams:

Florida- They are the hands down favorite.
Wisconsin-Just solid all the way around: must be that Mid-west work ethic.
Ohio State-They may be peaking at the right time, very talented and cohesive.
UNC-May be too young, but they can play. They are very good when ahead, and will cover the first round 36pt spread!

Kansas and Texas A&M are the only two teams that can possibly join these teams. Memphis will continue to roll, score a lot of points, move up the rankings, but they will never be a complete team. Pitt has fallen out of my graces for obvious reasons.

Today's Picks:

Tennessee -3 vs Kentucky- This team is getting better and will defend their home court against Kentucky.

Texas Tech +13 vs Texas A&M. I really like this Aggie team, but Bobby Knight will show why he is the all-time leader in wins. This team has lost 5 in a row, and will respond with some character and make this a close game.

Old Dominion -7.5 vs Hofstra. This game will look close for a while, but ODU will pull away at the end to win by double digits.

UNC -14 vs Virginia Tech. We have said this several times, but when North Carolina gets an early lead, they will roll. Let's hope the first 3 shots go in, and this game could be over early.

San Diego State -2.5 vs UNLV. This game better be on TV, because there will be some athletes on the court and a highlight for the late SportsCenter is guaranteed. Take the home team in a good battle.

Out- B. Anthony
