Matt – UNC (-11); Northern Illinois (-8.5); Virginia Tech (+3.5)
North Carolina is clicking on all cylinders at this point and are starting to look like one of the top four or five contenders to cut down the nets. Roy Williams pushes the tempo but unlike some previous years, they have some shooters to go along with their athletic freaks – namely, Cam Johnson, Luke Maye, and the freshman with the best hair in the game Coby White. The best way to beat the 2-3 zone that Syracuse employs is with shooters, and the Heels have ’em.
NIU is hosting the Harvard of the upper Midwest in Western Michigan. Despite the great brains coming from Kalamazoo, the Broncos do not have a great basketball squad this season. Eugene German will make up for the Huskies’ road loss a few weeks ago with an easy win in Dekalb tonight.
Duke looked great in the second half – especially Alex O’Connell and R.J. Barrett – against Syracuse in the dome on Saturday night. A trip to Blacksburg against Buzz Williams’ Hokies is always a difficult trip for the Devils. Look for the home dog to expedite the return of Zion Williamson with an upset win at home.
Joe (@abes34) – Memphis (-4.5)
Penny Hardaway has the Tigers with an outside chance to make the tourney in his first year as head coach. However he needs every win from here out and a decent run in the conference tournament. It’s starts tonight with a big win over Temple.
