Saturday's Slate...December 20th

Ho, Ho, Ho...

Ho, Ho, Ho...

It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas...March!!! December 20th is a date that has been circled on the calendars of many avid college basketball fans. For many teams it is a "resume builder" type Saturday, vying for that signature "W." Some mysteries will be partially unveiled. Will Stephen Curry drop 40? Can BYU (yes, those Mormons can play) rise to the occasion and crack the Top 25 with a marquee win? Can the Mighty Muskies of Xavier perform on a neutral court in a "made-for-tv-game" against the Dukies? We will find out who was on Santa's "Good" List tomorrow.

Our obligatory picks in Red.
