I’ve been backing the Shockers for a while now as I thought their 11 seed was a joke.,They can easily make it to the final four because they have the best defense in the Nation. However, how long can they maintain that defense intensity playing third game in 5 days. Miami is not a push over. Vandy and Arizona have been soft all year so I was not surprised Shockers spanked them both. Miami has Veterans and takes care of ball and makes their FTs. F McCllelan can really play and will be a difficult task for Shockers to handle. Miami is a tough team physically and mentally. Getting points is a little crazy as well. Again I will back the small Dog here. 4 Stars
WINNER….MIAMI 65-57….Wichita state would of been an elite 8 team if they played Duke or someone outside this tough region.
Miami showed some balls after Shockers got within two pts after trailing by 21.
Okay my Guarantee goes up with the Zags. Waited a little long as line went from pk to 1.5. Let’s do the ML since juice is just1 15 pts..
Utah has a better bench then Gonzago and more movable parts. However, I believe the toughness factor will favor the Zags. What a great matchup between Centers Poetl and Sabonis. Two future NBA lottery picks that I believe will make an immediate impact in the NBA.
Utah goes when PG Taylor is playing a good game. I believe he will have a difficult time with G Josh Perkins. The Zags perimeter defense is really good because with their bigs they don’t have to double down. That is significant. I believe the Zags and Utes will go back and forth the entire game until the three ball Seperates Gonzaga in this contest. Again, Utah will lose the toughness battle on defensive end. The Bulldogs win unless Sabonis has to sit with foul trouble. 10 STARS Gonzaga ML -120
WINNER …..ZAGS 82-59. BLOW AWAY ANOTHER CONFERENCE OF CHAMPIONS OVER RATED TEAM…BILL WALTON MUST BE SMOKIN AND LISTENING TO THE DEAD RIGHT NOW.
Let’s keep backing the Dogs here. Butler can score inside and outside. You need to have that combination to make it a game versus this Virginia team. I actually like the Over but I am a stinker doing total plays. So I won’t do total but will put something Butler team to cover. This game will be a nail bitter in my opinion. G Kellen Dunham and F Kelan Martin can shoot and dribble penetrate so Virginia will have to be honest. Virginia wins but it will be a closer game then projected. 3 stars Butler +8
PUSH-BUTLER +8…VIRGINIA LUCKY PUSH 77-69. BUTLER HUNG WITH THEM MOST OF THE GAME…VIRGINIA NEVER GOT PASS TO DDs so to me this was the right play.
We were on the lucky side yesterday so won’t get too upset here.
Iowa was fortunate to escape with a victory versus Temple. We had Temple and that was an easy cover. Nova has choked the last couple of years in this position but today I see a beat down with Nova doing the beating. Temple outplayed Iowa but gave Iowa the game with FTs and Turnovers. Iowa won’t have that luxury versus Nova who doesn’t foul as much and won’t turn the ball over. Both teams love to jack up the three ball. Iowa does it with primarily 2/3 players while Nova does it with 5. Okay…6.5 points…I’ve been playing on Dogs and small favs to really build the bankroll..I am going to go against the grain…Look for Villanovas spread offense to break down Iowa and wear them down to the point of trying to comeback from DDs. 3 stars
Get my strong GUARANTEE going off tonight!
WINNER —NOVA -7 ….after ten minutes Nova was Men versus Boys Iowa….Nova 87-68
What SFA did to West Virginia was amazing. Their quickness was something that I have not seen in a long time. F Walkup is one of those players that you can tell has really worked on his craft and realizes how to maximize everything on the court. SFA can win in so many ways. But they will win this game on defense.mNotre is not deep enough to withstand SFAs relentless ball hawking defense. Their toughness to me was displayed against the Mpuntaineers who to me was a top 5 team. Notre Dame will have to go ballistic from three point land to knock these guys out. Wrong team is favored here..SFA +2
John Fisher Las Vegas, Nevada
WINNER -SFA +2….we got the W ATS ,,,,but I will say this…officials,really gave the Irish a chance there in the end….Notre Dame 76-75.
The Badgers have been an amazing story. In the beginning of the year I wrote this team has being NIT bound.What a turn around. They play sound defense and play a methodical style that has made them a staple for 19702 throw back era. But unfortunately for them they run into an Xavier team that will not be an easy team for,them to play. I look at this game as similar to the Miami Wichita State game yesterday.
Xavier will just be too tough for,Wiscomsin to get an upset here. The bigs of Farr and Reynolds for Xavier will just be too much for Wisconsin. They will,have to double down creating open shots for Bluiett amd Abell from three point land. I see Xavier winning by DDs here. Xavier -4.5 10 STARS
LOSS-XAVIER -4.5..ouch…amazing when you can’t make shots…Happ was best player on floor and then you have streak shooter in Keonig get hot 6/12 from 3 pt line…Wisconsin 66-63…Snaps my streak….11-2-1 L4 after this loss.
