Wednesday, Big night

Many games on the board, B. Anthony will try to be selective. The big spreads are proving tough to cover as the season winds down. This happens because the familiarity between teams, and often the heavy favorites slow the ball down in the final 10 minutes because they are happy to milk the clock with a ten point lead instead of trying to cover the 17 that we laid. For example, Michigan St went up 14 several times, but never stepped on Indiana's throat when they had them down. Subsequently, Indiana easily covered the 14 by hitting late 3's and making MSU sweat it out!

Tonight's Winners:

Memphis -7.5 vs Houston. Tigers are playing the no respect card and their defense is continuing to be the best in the country. 63-50 final!

Virginia Tech +9.5 vs UNC. Hokies and fans will be going crazy when this game is tied with 4 minutes to go. UNC 78-73, no cover, take the dog and under 161.

Marquette +10 vs Pittsburgh. Too much pride for Marquette and Jermel McNeal. Take the points. Pitt will pound them with Blair, but won't have an answer for the transition 3's and penetration. 72-68 Pitt wins, but again no cover.

Kansas -10.5 vs Texas Tech. Exception to the rule. Texas Tech sucks. Pat Knight is a farce. He is a disciple of his father, but his teams run and gun and play no defense. Collins and Aldrich make up a true old fashion post and point duo. They bury Tech even on the road. 84-67.

Leans on heavy dogs_

Northwestern +12.5 in a slow down game with Purdue. ugly basketball 58-51, no cover for Boilermakers!

Seton Hall +17 vs Louisville. Cardinals are at home and will get up big early before they start forcing up 3's and throwing alley-oops to wow the crowd. 75-62, but no cover!!! Seton Hall's funny looking scorer, Jeremy Hazell, will make some late buckets to get his 20 and the backdoor cover.

Good Luck

B. Anthony
