Chi-Town seemed to shutdown this weekend as Da Bears fans wait in anticipation for their special day. You know what’s a special day for Greggy G? When the Hokies go on the road to play the Yellow Jackets and it’s in HD on Fox Sports Net! While I cooked up some smokies and mixed-up some Mai Tai’s, nobody show-up for my Sunday Funday Party…but that didn’t stop me from rolling up a 5-2 record yesterday. And of course I needed it after my sub-par performance last week, but hey, even Spud Webb had few games without an assist. Tonight, I’m not loving much on the NBA hardwood, but there looks to be some easy choices at the college level. I feel like telling you I’ve won 4 in-a-row on NCAA…but you guys know that cause you be reading www.insideplays.com every M*tha F*ckin Day!
PITTSBURG PANTHERS (+2) @ VILLANOVA WILDCATS (ESPN)
The Wildcats lost three unbelievable guards to the NBA this year, and are trying to regroup with some youngsters in the backcourt (not counting Mike Nardi) and Curtis Sumpter’s return from knee surgery. While Sumpter looked sharp earlier in the year, he re-injured the knee two weeks ago and has not looked the same since. As for Pitt, they were lucky to keep 7-footer Aaron Gray (15 ppg, 10 rpg, 57 fg%. from declaring last year and have just been stockpiling guards over the last 4 years. They’ve won 9 out of their last 10, and after tonight, it’ll be 10 of 11…Panthers by 4-10 points
KANSAS JAYHAWKS (-6) @ NEBRASKA CORNHUSKERS (ESPN)
After sleeping walking thru the first half of the season and losing at Texas Tech on Jan 20th, the Jayhawks look like a completely different team and have started to blow-out teams they should (at Baylor by 26, Colorado by 23). As for the Huskers, their 1-4 in conference, got blown out by Kansas St. over the weekend, and just don’t have the athleticism or speed to keep up with Bill Self’s squad…KU by 10-16 points
HOFSTRA PRIDE (-9) @ DELAWARE FIGHTING BLUE HENS
1. The Pride are 9-1 in conference, while the Blue Birdies are 1-9.
2. The Pride beat Delaware by 25, and the Blue Birdies had their second leading scorer and rebounder healthy…tonight they don’t.
3. The Pride’s 3-headed guard attack averages 51 ppg, 14 rpg, 10 apg, and nearly 40% from behind the arc, while the Blue Beeaches start two freshman alongside Senior Calvin Cannon (9.5 ppg) in the backcourt.
4. They call themselves the M*ther F*ckin Fighting Blue Hens!...Pride by 14-18 points.
