Predictable Unpredictability

College hoops, this why we love it. I picked Louisville as the team to take a rest last night. I missed it, but two other great teams did. Wake was just not ready for the pressure of #1, but they will be better because of this loss. (See Jeff Teague's comments) By the way, he is Iversonesque!

Northwestern made at least 5 30 footers last night, so they earned the upset of Michigan St.

Today's Picks

Georgetown -5 vs West Virginia. Bounce back at home, they defend and shoot free throws down the stretch to cover this pretty handily.

Cal -18.5 vs Oregon St. Bears will light it up at home, and Beavers missed at least 2 practices this week while coach was in DC, they are not ready to stay in this game.

Temple -11.5 vs St. Louis. Majerus can coach, if he has players. He doesn't have them at St. Louis, and Temple is improving rapidly. They will contend in the Atlantic 10 tourney and will dance in March.

UCLA -5 vs Washington St. Ugly game, but UCLA won't lose two in a row in league. Better athletes and shooters at every position. Another Bounce Back game. (Actually all four of these teams are coming off losses.)

Wisconsin Green Bay +9.5 vs Butler. 1st and 2nd place teams in Horizon league. This will be single digits!

Good Luck,

B. Anthony
