John Fisher’s free play of the day:
“Things are not always what they seem; the first appearance deceives many; the intelligence of a few perceives what has been carefully hidden.” Phaedrus
Perhaps the Longhorns are living by this motto. Not one team has disappointed more than this team. Ranked number 4 to begin the year this team has under performed the entire year. Yet some how they rank high in most efficiency categories. That leaves us with this…perhaps Coach Barnes time has come. This talent looks for ways to lose more then win. Vegas is starting to lay its traps and this is one of them. The obvious choice is Baylor. They have played better and frankly are better. Yet they are 3 point dogs to a Texas team that is 6-9 ATS at Home. The public is all over Baylor at 80%.
Let’s go with Mr. Phaedrus and take TEXAS. We can blame him if they don’t cover.
Other notes from weekend:
The Beavers are playing with one nights rest after getting pummeled by Stanford. They have lost 8/9 on the road going 2-8 ATS in road contests. Cal isn’t much better at Home but the Beavers offense is down right pitiful away from Home. Look for Wallace and Matthews to give the Bears just enough edge to give their team a win at Home. Beavers play much better defense but away from Home their offense makes it almost impossible to get wins. 4 stars
Cal took control in second half.
Senior day for Kaminsky. They lost to a good Maryland team that plays well at Home and now get an easier task with the Spartans. I’ve said this from day one the Spartans would have trouble this year. They will lose 10’games after this game. They have no skilled players in the post and tend let teams do what they want on offense. Valentine is a good player but that is really it. Hayes, Kaminsky, and Dekket will be able to score at will. I see a dominating in your face angry game by Wisconsin versus an over rated Spartan yeam here. Badgers win 67/54
Led 61-43 ten,..
Complete BS …seriously….up DDs the entire second half Badgers took,foot off pedal with 5 minutes…Spartans get four trash three pointers after Kaminsky misses a dunk to seal the deal….Terrible loss…..it was never this close…..Spartans play .no defense and look to fill stat sheet..to lose on a last second three that meant nothing except giving us a loss….
