N. ARIZONA LUMBERJACKS (-1.5) @ N. COLORADO BEARS
While most of you probably don’t know much about the hardwood tendencies of Northern Zona or Colorado…that’s why the pay me the big-bucks here at IP.com. The Lumberjacks sit at 6-2 in the mighty-Big Sky with possibly the most unheralded big-man in the country in 6-9 Sr. Kyle Landry (17 ppg, 8 rpg, & 58-fg%). What’s even more surprising for this baby-major is that they have another frontcourt behemoth to cover his back (6-10 Sr. McCurdy 7 ppg, & 6 rpg). Throw-in a starting veteran backcourt (Jr. Josh Wilson 12 ppg, 6 apg, 49-fg% & Sr. Nathan Geiser 10 ppg 43-3pt%) that should be extra focused after losing their last road-contest (which has them tied for 1st now) and I can’t see how they fall to the lowly, undersized Bears. Speaking of the Da Bear, they’re 2-6 in the frickin’ Big Sky, so let’s face it, the hood on the Northside of Colorado just ain’t representing. So write it down, take a picture, I don’t give a Kobe Tai…Lumberjacks roll by 6-10

STANFORD CARDINALS (-1.5) @ WASHINGTON HUSKIES
Now I’m not hear to knock the bruising big-man for the Huskies Jon Brockman because he’s been sensational all year (19 ppg, 12 rpg)…but at 6-7 and paired with the light-weight 6-7 Quincy Poindexter (9 ppg, 5 rpg), this is a terrible match-up for Washington tonight. Stanford’s 7-foot twin-towers (Brook & Robin Lopez: 27 ppg, 14 rpg, & 4 bpg) and 6-8 Taj Finger should make things extremely hard on the Huskies offense as their perimeter players struggle to create their own shot and rely on double-teams down-low to spread the floor. Tonight, the Cardinals won’t have to double-down, not to mention I can’t see how Brockman stays out of foul-trouble, and should continue to roll as they get more comfortable with NBA Lottery Pick Brook Lopez back in the line-up (missed the 1st 9 games). I could waste your time with more stats, but I’d rather just tell you that size does matter Homeboys…Cardinals by 6-10 points
S. ALABAMA JAGUARS (-3) @ N. TEXAS GREEN WAVE
While conference road games can be scarier than the results of a Q-Tip test from the doctor, the only undefeated squad in the Sun Belt (South Bama 9-0) starts 4 upperclassmen and a sophomore, led by 6-4 Sr. Demetric Bennett (20 ppg, 6 rpg, 49-fg%, 40-3pt), and understand that an at-large bid my only come with perfection during the regular season. As for the Mean Green, they sit 9th in the M*tha F*ckin Hot Belt and are led in scoring by a freshman guard who is 9 for has last 27 from the field…what else you need u lil' BEEATCHES!?...Jaguars by 6-10 points
MINNESOTA G. GOPHERS @ MICHIGAN WOLVERINES (+3)
Greggy G’s New Head Coach theory #323- As the season progresses under a brand-new coach, I team that is senior-laden will see a decline in their game as the coach begins to work in the youngsters. Especially because he’s safe from losing his job, wins are not as important in year-one, and the coach will start to develop the youngsters even if their not ready…I know baby, the theory is frickin’ brilliant! Speaking of Minnesota, Tubby Smith has watched patiently as his top-three scorers, all seniors, have dropped 3-straight in-conference. As a result, from here on out I look for the former Wildcat coach to give big-time minutes to next year’s squad. As for the Wolverines, while they too have a new coach in John Beilein (who I honestly believe may be one of the top-5 coaches in the country…and my opinion matters because I have frickin' website & password!), they’ve been led by 6-5 freshman G Manny Harris (16 ppg, 5 rpg, 3 apg) and a bevy of talented youngsters all-year. As for their development, let’s just say the Wolverines almost went into Wisconsin and stole a victory against the Badgers. Tonight, I look for the youngsters to pull-off their 2nd conference win, and more importantly, give Greggy G a great start to the night…Wolverines by 3-7 points
NBA TEASER SPECIAL
SAN ANTONIO SPURS @ PHOENIX SUNS (teased to -3)
The Spurs are the midst of a 3-game losing streak, which included an awful loss to the Sonics Tuesday, and will be playing without Tony Longoria against the best PG not named Chris Paul tonight. (BTW, Jason Kidd should demand a shooting coach, not a trade…OVA RATED, CLAP, CLAP, CLAPPEDY-CLAP!). Sure Timmy D will have a big-night, but how you think Amare & the Matrix will look running up-n-down against his tired legs. And while Jacque Vaughn is one of my favorite Jayhawks, I don’t think the pick-n-roll with Sir Duncan will be as effective since he barely shoots better than J-Kidd (check that shiznit out…foreshadowing baby!). Enough said, Suns roll Homeboys!
INDIANA HOOSIERS @ WISCONSIN BADGERS (teased to even)
Badgers at home…without giving points…and Eric Gordon’s wrist hurts more than mine on solo-business trip at the Red Roof Inn! Tell me where I’m wrong Homeboys! (BTW, I think I might also tease the Suns with Cal St. Fullerton…Long Beach St. is horrific!
