Admit it fellaz, you were telling your friends about Greggy G as Xavier was up 10 with only a few minutes to go. As with most tourney games, I didn’t invest…but was more disappointed than Onterrio Smith was when he found out there wasn’t a return policy on the Whizzinator. Oh well, I’ve still got 7 of 8 Elite Eight teams alive (damn you LBST!) and West Virginia is still my lock to win the NIT. As for tonight, the pickings are slimmer than at Old Country Buffet after the Purdue Cheerleaders have finished their mid-afternoon snack, but I’ve got a pretty sweet picture to use…so I’ve got to find something to wager on. Only 2 garbage games on the professional level tonight, so I don’t know if I’ll be wastin’ my time with those…but I do know one thing: It Ain’t Eazzzy being Greggy G…will I see the penitentiary or will I stay free!
GEORGIA BULLDOGS @ AIR FORCE FALCONS (-6)
After reaching #14 in the polls as late as Feb 19, the Falcons proceeded to drop their next 4 games and missed-out on an invitation to the Big Dance. After dealing with the initial shock, the senior-laden Falcons regrouped and started off the NIT with a dominating 24-point win over Austin Peay. As for the Bulldogs, they couldn’t miss a shot in their first round game at home against a lazy Fresno St. squad, but have been a horrible road team this season only winning 4 of 13 contests. In addition, besides the ruckus home-court for Air Force, they also run a disciplined offense that will test the patience of a shot-happy Bulldog crew…Falcons by 8-14 points
