Kansas State (-14.5) over Nebraska- Nebraska has been taking up the rear of the Big 12 all season long and tonight will be no different. Frank Martin's Kansas State Wildcats are an explosive offensive bunch, boasting four players capable of 20+ point performances. WIth a strong finish, they could be looking at a #2 seed come March.
Utah (+3.5) over UNLV- Utah seemed to matchup well with the Runnin' Rebels back on 1/16 when they beat UNLV by four in Las Vegas. It has been a tumultuous ride for both teams since. Utah's balanced scoring attack should benefit them as they defend home court tonight, but they'll have to contain guard Tre'Von Willis who has been turning heads since his 33-point 8-assist night against BYU earlier this month. Utes hold down Willis and protect their house.
Ohio State (-3) over Purdue- This one is definitely the game of the night and could end up being the game of the week by the time its all said and done. In Evan Turner's first game back from his back injury, his Buckeyes withstood the Robbie Hummel's long range show and scored a 70-66 win in West Lafayette. The fourth-ranked Boilermakers will try to return the favor when they visit Columbus. Ohio State has been on a tear winning six in a row while Purdue's winning streak is at seven. I'll take the best player in the country, and his talented supporting cast. Buckeyes 66-61.
