Tonight's Picks


Ouch! GMU's Sherrod Wright had a 3 pointer at the buzzer, which barely covered the spread and gave us a paltry 1 for 3 start. Like they say, you win some and you lose some. Tossing some back on the table, we're back at it again:

#3 Villanova (-13.5) over St. Joes: Villanova should cruise past St. Joes in this lopsided Big 5 matchup. Phil Martelli's bunch has lost four straight and their isn't much light at the end of the tunnel. Watch for Villanova's backcourt, mainly Scottie Reynolds and Corey Fisher, to dominate from beyond the arc.

#4 Kentucky (+2) over #12 UConn: More appointment television coming to you live from Madison Square Garden. Kentucky proved it can hang with the big boys after toughing out its victory over UNC and UConn proved the opposite with their loss to Duke earlier this year. I'll take the Wildcats with Patrick Patterson and John Wall all day long.

WI-Green Bay (+5) over #23 Wisconsin: Wisconsin is definitely the better team in this matchup, but the Phoenix already have eight wins worth of experience going into this game. I like this spread for Green Bay over the Badgers because of the home court advantage in this cheese state rivalry.
