Kentucky Wildcats With SEC Road Test At LSU Tigers

A huge Saturday in college basketball is highlighted by the Kentucky Wildcats visiting the LSU Tigers in the SEC.

The Wildcats are No. 1 in the country, but part of a disturbing against the spread trend for last year’s Final Four teams. Their 5-14-1 ATS mark ranks 293rd among 294 teams, while Butler (4-13-2 ATS) is 292nd. Those teams are previewed below in Saturday games.

Defending champ Connecticut (6-9 ATS) is also under .500, with only VCU (12-9 ATS) bucking the trend. VCU visits Georgia State on Saturday, while No. 19 Connecticut hosts Notre Dame on Sunday.

1:00 p.m. (ET) on CBS

The Longhorns (13-7 straight up, 5-10 ATS) are one of the nation’s most inexperienced teams with six freshmen in their 9-man rotation. That kind of youth usually fares badly on the road and they’re 1-6 SU and 2-5 ATS in road plus neutral site games.

Junior guard J’Covan Brown (19.1 PPG) has done his best to provide leadership and points, but there is no reliable second scorer. It’s hard to imagine Texas staying within double-digits without at least 25 points from Brown.

Baylor (18-2 SU, 7-6 ATS) is breathing a sigh of relief after a 77-65 win at Oklahoma on Tuesday. That was a 2-point margin with just over four minutes to go before finishing on a 15-5 run. The Bears were coming off losses at Kansas (92-74) and home to Missouri (89-88) last week, both foes now ranked in the top-5.

Coach Scott Drew’s guys return home to Waco's Ferrell Center where they're 10-1 SU and 2-2 ATS. His frontcourt is long and athletic, but Texas has a couple of serviceable big men in seniors Clint Chapman and Alexis Wangmene, although neither scores much.

Texas beat Baylor (60-54) as 3½-point favorites in Waco last year. That was with a completely different roster. Baylor was 5-0 ATS in the previous five (4-1 SU).

No. 1 Kentucky Wildcats at LSU Tigers
4:00 p.m. (ET) on ESPN3

Kentucky (20-1 SU, 5-14-1 ATS) returned to the top ranking nationally after Syracuse lost last Saturday to Notre Dame. Coach John Calipari’s guys have won 12-straight after the surprising 73-72 loss at Indiana as 5½-point favorites on Dec. 10.

The Wildcats have found covering the spread much tougher, although they’re 2-1 ATS in the last three after an 0-13-1 ATS stretch. The ‘under’ is 8-0 outside of Lexington’s Rupp Arena this year, Kentucky scoring 69.9 PPG on the road compared to 78.4 PPG overall and 83.8 PPG at home.

The Tigers (12-8 SU, 11-6 ATS) have lost four of their last five games (2-3 ATS), all the defeats SEC road games. They have won both of their conference home games at Pete Maravich Assembly Center and are 7-2 SU and 3-4 ATS there this season.

LSU needs to keep this a low scoring game. The Tigers' 67.2 PPG ranks just seventh in the SEC. Iowa State transfer Justin Hamilton is the leading scorer (13.9 PPG) and rebounder (7.4 PPG) and he has the height at 6-foot-11 to match up with Anthony Davis. However, Kentucky will still have a big advantage on the boards.

Kentucky won the last two meetings handily, 81-55 away in February 2010 and 82-44 at home in January 2011.

Butler Bulldogs at Green Bay Phoenix
7:00 p.m. (ET) on ESPNU

The Bulldogs (12-10 SU, 4-13-2 ATS) saw their disappointing season continue with a 53-42 loss at Milwaukee on Thursday night. They’re now just 6-4 SU (2-7-1 ATS) in Horizon League play and in fifth place. The national champion runner-up the last two years is a major longshot to even make March Madness.

Butler’s main problem is on the offensive end, its 63 PPG ranking just sixth in the conference. Center Andrew Smith (10.6 PPG) is the leading scorer, but hasn’t been able to replace Matt Howard. Guard Shelvin Mack’s departure also left a gaping hole. This is the team’s fourth straight road game, going 3-2 SU and 1-4 ATS away in the conference so far.

Green Bay (8-12 SU, 8-8-1 ATS) actually scores less than Butler at 62.7 PPG. Sophomore center Alec Brown (13.4 PPG) is the only player in double digits and will be a good matchup with Smith.

The Phoenix’ scoring woes were on display at Butler on Dec. 29, a 53-49 loss. They did cover as 8½-point dogs and are 3-0 ATS in the last three meetings despite losing them all. They’re 4-6 SU (5-4-1 ATS) in the conference, 4-1 SU (2-3 ATS) at home.

The ‘under’ is 5-2 in the last seven meetings between the teams in Green Bay.

Bucks Battle LA Lakers Minus Andrew Bogut

There are six games that litter the NBA rotation schedule on Saturday night, and there are definitely some notes that have to be taken into consideration for those contests.

Coming into play on Friday, the Eastern Conference playoff race essentially features six teams that are well above .500 and several that are flirting just on the wrong side of .500. The Bucks would be the last team in the postseason right now at just 7-10 SU.

Milwaukee is coming off of its first win on the road at the Houston Rockets since 1999 on Wednesday, when the Bucks notched a 105-99 triumph. It was the team’s third road victory of the season, the first two of which surprisingly came against Eastern Conference contenders, the Miami Heat and New York Knicks.

The only bad news from the win against Houston was that Andrew Bogut suffered an ankle injury that will keep him out of the lineup for at least the next two weeks. Without Bogut in the fold, the Bucks only have two men that are averaging double-digits in scoring (Brandon Jennings and Stephen Jackson), and only Ersan Ilyasova is averaging more than 5.2 RPG on the team.

Bogut had already missed five games this year, all coming on the road against Western Conference opponents. The Bucks went 0-5 SU and just 1-4 ATS. The good news on Saturday is that they will be back at home. The bad news is that the team coming to town is the Los Angeles Lakers, a squad with no shortage of big men that it can throw the Bucks’ way.

Tip time from Milwaukee's Bradley Center is set for 8:30 p.m. (ET).

As for those Rockets, the home loss to Milwaukee was a bit of a shock for a team that is 7-2 SU and 6-3 ATS on its own floor. Houston welcomes the New York Knicks to Toyota Center on Saturday night at 8:00 (ET).

Saturday's nationally televised game on NBA TV pits the Utah Jazz against the Sacramento Kings. On paper, this looks like a horrendous mismatch. Not only is Utah 5.5-games in front of the Kings in the standings, but the Jazz are 8-3 SU and 7-4 ATS when playing at EnergySolutions Arena, while the Kings are just 2-9 SU and ATS on the road.

Sacramento’s defense ranks dead last in the league, allowing 102.6 PPG, and the unit has been atrocious of late. Over the last three games, all of which were defeats both SU and ATS, the Kings allowed an average of 117.0 PPG. Utah enters this one having scored at least 106 in five out of six.

This clash on the NBA hardwood is set for 9:00 (ET).

The Washington Wizards and Charlotte Bobcats battle for the second time in just three days when they meet Saturday at Time Warner Cable Arena at 7:00 (ET). Elsewhere in the Eastern Conference at the same time, the Philadelphia 76ers will look to extend their lead in the Atlantic Division when they take on the Detroit Pistons.

The other Western Conference game on the NBA slate pits the Phoenix Suns against the Memphis Grizzlies in a 9:00 (ET) affair.

Saturday's Slate

January 27, 2012

Gamblers have bets and ballgames galore to feast on Saturday in college hoops. Let’s start with an SEC showdown at the O-Dome in Gainesville, where Florida (16-4 straight up, 7-7-1 against the spread) will take on Mississippi St. at 1:45 p.m. Eastern on The SEC Network (channel 725 on DirecTV).

BetOnline.com opened the Gators as 9 ½-point favorites with a total of 145. In less than 20 minutes, the number was adjusted to 10. By 6:30 p.m. Eastern on Friday night, the total was moved to 147 at most betting shops.

UF is facing a quick turnaround after rallying to beat Ole Miss 64-60 Thursday night in Oxford. Billy Donovan’s club came out flat, falling behind 20-4 before cutting the deficit to 38-28 at intermission.

Bettors jumping on the Gators for halftime bets (-5.5, +4.5 adjusted) were able to easily cash tickets. Kenny Boynton drained four 3-pointers en route to scoring 12 points, while Erving Walker scored 10 points and dished out nine assists. Patric Young scored a team-high 15 points on 7-of-10 shooting from the field.

The Rebels killed UF on the boards with a 36-18 advantage. However, the Gators made up for the rebounding deficit by taking care of the basketball with only six turnovers.

Florida is unbeaten in 12 home games, posting a 3-3-1 spread record. Assuming the line stays at 10 or more, we should note that UF owns a 3-4-1 ATS mark in eight games as a double-digit ‘chalk.’

Mississippi State (17-4 SU, 10-10 ATS) has won four of its last five games, including Wednesday’s non-covering victory over LSU by a 76-71 count as a nine-point home favorite. Arnett Moultrie remained the leading candidate to win SEC Player of the Year honors with another stellar effort, scoring 28 points to go with 12 rebounds.

The UTEP transfer has been dominant for the Bulldogs, averaging team-highs in points (17.1 PPG), rebounds (11.2 RPG) and FG percentage (56.3%). Moultrie has plenty of help thanks to the presence of senior point guard Dee Bost, who is averaging 16.0 points, 4.7 assists, 3.6 rebounds and 2.2 steals per game.

Rick Stansbury’s team has been an underdog six times, compiling a 5-1 spread record with three outright wins over Alabama, Vanderbilt, Arizona and Texas A&M.

The ‘over is 11-4 overall for the Gators, 6-1 in their home games. Meanwhile, MSU has seen the ‘over’ cash in its last three games and go 11-9 overall.

The WCC isn’t about just Gonzaga these days. With the addition of BYU along with the emergence of Saint Mary’s in recent years, the league now has three programs that are in the mix for an NCAA bid annually. The Gaels, who beat BYU 98-82 on Dec. 29, will look to sweep the season series when they venture into Provo on Saturday night.

BYU (18-5 SU, 10-9 ATS) stepped out of conference and flew across the country to collect a solid road win Wednesday at Va. Tech. The Cougars won a 70-68 decision over the Hokies as three-point underdogs. Brock Zylstra buried a clutch trey with 23 seconds left to put BYU up for good at 69-66.

Noah Harstock scored 22 points to go with seven rebounds, three blocked shots and a pair of steals for the winners. Brandon Davies added 17 points, five rebounds and four assists.

Saint Mary’s (20-2 SU, 10-7 ATS) hasn’t tasted defeat since a Dec. 22 loss to Baylor. Randy Bennett’s squad has won 10 in a row but is mired in a 2-5 ATS slump in its last seven contests.

The Gaels are led by Jones, a senior forward who began his career at San Diego and hit a game-winning jumper to propel the Toreros to a stunning win over UConn in the first round of the 2008 NCAA Tournament. Jones is averaging 14.3 points and 10.9 rebounds per game.

As of early Friday night, most spots had BYU listed as a 2 ½-point favorite with a total of 152.

Dave Rose’s team has won 10 of its 12 home games while going 5-3 versus the number. BYU has a 2-2 spread record in four single-digit ‘chalk’ spots so far this year. As for Saint Mary’s, it has only been an underdog once, losing 72-59 to Baylor at The Orleans Arena in Las Vegas.

When the Gaels cruised to an easy win over BYU as four-point home favorites last month, Rob Jones led the way with 25 points and 14 rebounds. Stephen Holt added 21 points, while Matthew Dellavedova finished with 18 points and 12 assists. Davies scored a game-high 28 points in the losing effort.

ESPNU will have the telecast at 9:00 p.m. Eastern.

**B.E.’s Bonus Nuggets**

--Middle Tennessee finally failed to cover the number in Thursday’s 71-58 home win over Troy as a 17-point home favorite. The Blue Raiders have the second-best spread record in the country with a 15-5 ATS ledger. They make the quick trip to Music City on Saturday to face Vandy at Memorial Coliseum. The Commodores opened as 8 1/2-point home ‘chalk’ at most spots.

--BetOnline opened Alabama as a 9 ½-point home favorite vs. Arkansas, but the number was moved to 11 within a half-hour.

--The top-ranked Kentucky Wildcats are nine-point road favorites Saturday at LSU. Tip-off in Baton Rouge is slated for 4:00 p.m. Eastern on The SEC Network. The total is 133.

--Nevada owns the nation’s premier ATS ledger at 13-3. The Wolfpack make the long trek to Ruston on Saturday to take on Louisiana Tech. The Bulldogs could be without one of their top players in Raheem Appleby (13.3 PPG), who is ‘questionable’ with a knee injury. Nevada has been installed as a six-point road favorite.

--Best wishes to College of Charleston head coach Bobby Cremins, who has taken an indefinite leave of absence to deal with a health issue that isn't believed to be life-threatening. While doing a feature story on former Ga. Tech player T.J. Vines as a young writer for the Marietta Daily Journal, Cremins granted me an interview at media day and was as nice and courteous as can be. Here's to hoping he gets back to the Cougars soon. After a 10-2 start to the year, they have lost six of their last eight games.

No. 1 Kentucky visits LSU on Saturday

KENTUCKY WILDCATS (20-1, 6-0 SEC)

at LSU TIGERS (12-8, 2-4 SEC)


Tip-Off: Saturday, 4:00 p.m. EDT
Line: Kentucky -9.5

No. 1-ranked Kentucky looks to remain unbeaten in SEC play when it travels to Baton Rouge to take on conference foe LSU on Saturday afternoon.

Despite occupying the top spot in the rankings, the Wildcats have not been a strong bet against the spread this season, going just 2-7 ATS over their last nine games, including a 1-2 ATS record in road conference games. Kentucky eked out a half-point cover (-12.5) in its 57-44 win at Georgia on Tuesday night, but the ‘Cats have struggled to score in their three SEC road games, averaging just 63.3 points per game—well below their 78.4 PPG mark overall. This plays well into the hands of LSU, who doesn’t light it up offensively (67.2 PPG), but likes to grind opponents down with solid defense. Despite their unimpressive SEC record, all four of the Tigers’ conference losses came in road games. LSU boasts a 4-3 ATS record at home, including impressive outright wins over then-No. 10 Marquette and an 81-55 drubbing of Ole Miss. The Bayou Bengals may not have the firepower to run with the tremendously athletic Wildcats, but Kentucky has consistently played down to its competition all season, and all the numbers point to LSU keeping this one close enough to cover.

In terms of balance, there are few teams in the country that can compete with Kentucky’s offensive lineup. The Wildcats feature six different players averaging in double-figures, including sophomores Doron Lamb (13.7 PPG) and Terrence Jones (11.6 PPG, 6.3 RPG) who returned from last year’s Final Four team. Head coach John Calipari doesn’t have much depth in this lineup though, essentially rolling with a seven-man rotation with four players averaging over 30 minutes per game. The ‘Cats also feature two of the most talented freshmen in the nation with versatile forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (13.2 PPG, 7.6 RPG) and celebrated big man Anthony Davis (13.2 PPG, 10.3 RPG, 4.7 BPG). Not only is Davis running away with Freshman of the Year honors, he very well may make the All-America team by season’s end.

Davis will have his hands full in this game with LSU’s leading scorer—junior center Justin Hamilton (13.9 PPG, 7.4 RPG). The Tigers love to feed the ball inside to Hamilton, but have yet to face a big man as dynamic as Davis. LSU will need a big game from its young tandem of guards—sophomore Andre Stringer (10.8 PPG) and freshman Anthony Hickey (10.0 PPG). Look for the Tigers to slow the pace of the game down to prevent the Wildcats from turning this into a track meet, but LSU will need Stringer and Hickey to knock down some open jumpers to keep this game close.

No. 6 Baylor looks for rare win vs. Texas

TEXAS LONGHORNS (13-7)

at BAYLOR BEARS (18-2)


Tip-off: Saturday, 1:00 p.m. EDT
Line: Baylor -9

No. 6 Baylor is looking to ensure it is back on track in the Big 12 with a win over an uncharacteristically struggling Texas team on Saturday afternoon.

The Bears had stayed undefeated until Big 12 play, but last week lost two consecutive games to Kansas and Missouri, the latter of which was by just one point. They rebounded nicely, though, with a 12-point SU and ATS win over Oklahoma on Tuesday. Although the Longhorns have been a miserable bet this season, going 5-10 ATS and just 2-5 ATS in Big 12 play, that is being factored into the lines too heavily, as Texas should be able to keep this game close. They have treated Waco as a second home in recent years going 12-1 SU and 9-4 ATS there since 1999. The Bears are also catching Longhorns guard J’Covan Brown (19.1 PPG) at the wrong time, who is in the midst of a four-game hot stretch in which he is averaging 23.0 PPG with 3.8 treys per game in that span. Play on TEXAS as underdogs to keep this game close.

Brown is everything to the Texas offense that as a whole averages a respectable 74.6 PPG this season. Almost all of the Longhorns production comes from its backcourt as freshman guards Sheldon McClellan (11.5 PPG) and Myck Kabongo (9.8 PPG) are the team’s next two leading scorers. Kabongo has been strong as the team’s point guard this season with 5.5 APG and 1.2 SPG. To keep it close, Clint Chapman (6.9 PPG, 5.8 RPG, 1.8 BPG) must be physical in the paint. The 6-foot-10 center will be matched up with Perry Jones III, setting up for an exciting battle down low. Play on the Horns to win with the points.

Baylor is one of the country’s most efficient teams on the offensive end, scoring its 78.2 PPG on 49.6% FG (7th-best in the nation). Center Perry Jones III leads that effort with 14.2 PPG on a 55.2% rate from the floor. Four other players, though, contribute double-digit points for the Bears on a deep offensive squad. Pierre Jackson (12.8 PPG), Quincy Acy (12.7 PPG), Quincy Miller (12.5 PPG) and Brady Heslip (10.0 PPG) round out that crew. Although Jackson (3.8 turnovers per game) needs to take better care of the ball, he is a great passer (6.0 APG) and shoots efficiently from the field at 51.2% and 50.7% from three-point range. The Bears are certainly the better team in this game, but given the Longhorns’ success at Waco, play against them here.

Blue Raiders surging at 20-2 in best start ever

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders are enjoying the results of their chemistry experiment.

Coach Kermit Davis had built a roster featuring four transfers from other Division I programs and three junior college players to a group returning three starters from a .500 team.

LaRon Dendy sat out last season as a transfer from Iowa State and says they swapped phone numbers followed by lots of texts. By the time the Blue Raiders hit campus, nobody felt like a stranger as they started playing pick-up games.

``Everybody wanting to win. That's where it all started off at,'' Dendy said.

And the Blue Raiders have been winning.

They are off to the best start in Middle Tennessee history at 20-2, winning 12 straight going into Saturday's game at Vanderbilt. It's their first 20-win season since 1990-91, and their 71-58 win over Troy on Thursday night for a 9-0 start in the Sun Belt Conference that is their best since 1974-75.

A mid-August trip to Calgary, Alberta in Canada for four games also helped speed up the new teammates figuring each other out on the court.

Junior guard JT Sulton, who has started 33 straight games, points to the Canada trip helping the Blue Raiders learn what each could and couldn't do. He said the players simply took ownership of the team then with NCAA rules limiting how much time coaches could be with them.

``We had to take it upon ourselves to become a better team,'' Sulton said.

Now only No. 11 Murray State (20-0), No. 3 Syracuse (21-1), No. 2 Kentucky (20-1) have better records this season than Middle Tennessee.

``It's a lot of fun,'' said Davis, who became the winningest coach in Middle Tennessee history earlier this season, passing Jimmy Earle, and now has 173 wins. ``Our guys are a fun group to coach. They've got a great personality. They just work really hard, and it's a team that you can have a lot of fun with off the court. But on the court, they really play and have great effort, so it's been a fun time so far.''

Middle Tennessee gave a strong hint of what this team might be capable of with a win at Loyola Marymount, then the Blue Raiders stunned UCLA in an 86-66 rout hitting 10 of 11 3-pointers and set a school record shooting 71.4 percent. The Blue Raiders also won at Mississippi 68-56 in December and avenged their first loss in double overtime to Belmont with a 65-62 home win in December.

Of their 20 wins, 16 have come by double figures including eight straight, which helped Middle Tennessee received votes for the first time Monday in The Associated Press' rankings.

Vanderbilt coach Kevin Stallings said Belmont coach Rick Byrd warned him Davis had a team that wasn't just good by Middle Tennessee's standards or the Sun Belt Conference.

``He said they're really good, and they've certainly proven him to be 100 percent correct,'' Stallings said.

Davis has a team filled with size with seven Blue Raiders taller than 6-foot 4 with 6-9 Dendy averaging a team-best 13.4 points and 6.9 rebounds per game. They share the ball well with 10 players scoring in double figures at least one game this season, and Middle Tennessee ranked eighth nationally through Monday, holding opponents to 37.5 percent shooting.

Sulton said this group loves playing defense first since everyone can have off nights offensively.

``But you can always defend, so we try to preach that a lot and practice and stay on it,'' Sulton said. ``Our goal is to keep our opponents under 30 percent, so ... we try to stick to that goal. We let our offense come to us.''

Words every coach loves to hear, and the timing is great for Davis, who had his critics after going 16-16 in his ninth season. Middle Tennessee has a proud basketball history with NCAA tournament wins over Kentucky in 1982 and Florida State in 1989. But the Blue Raiders haven't been in the tournament since then, and patience had been waning.

Davis focuses on coaching his team. He grew up in the coaching business and remembers people hollering at his dad, Kermit Davis Sr., from the stands.

A win Saturday could clinch an at-large NCAA tournament berth for Middle Tennessee in case the Blue Raiders don't win the Sun Belt tournament and automatic berth.

That is something Davis wants to keep control of himself.

``In my mindset, we have to win the conference tournament. I think that's always got to be your mindset at our level. If the season ended today, would we be considered for an at-large? No question about it. Whether we get in, it's up to those people, but we're right in that mix. But at our level, you have to go in thinking you're trying like heck to win your regular season championship and understand more than likely you're going to have to win three games in March,'' Davis said.

``And if you don't have to, great. But that's our mindset right now.''

Saturday's betting tips: Bearcats on ATS road tear

Who’s hot

NCAAB: Cincinnati is 5-0 ATS in its last five road games.

NCAAB: St. Louis is 11-5 ATS in its last 16 games.

NCAAB: The under is 11-4-1 in the last 16 UC Riverside-UC Irvine meetings.

NBA: The favorite is 8-1 ATS in the last nine New York-Houston games.

NBA: The under is 7-2 in the last nine Pistons-76ers games in Philadelphia.

Who’s not

NCAAB: Clemson is 1-6 ATS in its last seven home games.

NCAAB: Baylor is 1-8 ATS in its last nine games following an ATS win.

NCAAB: Utah is 1-6 ATS in its last seven road games.

NBA: Milwaukee is 0-7 ATS in its last seven games playing on zero days’ rest.

NBA: Sacramento is 3-10 ATS in its last 13 games against winning teams.

Key stat

38.1 – That’s the shooting percentage Tennessee has allowed in its last three home games, all against ranked teams. The Vols held Florida, Kentucky and Connecticut to an average of 59.3 points, going 2-1 against that gauntlet. Tennessee hosts Auburn on Saturday. The Tigers are averaging 55.2 points and shooting 37.4 percent in SEC play.

Injuries that shouldn’t be overlooked

Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki missed his fourth straight game Friday, and there’s no guarantee he’ll play Sunday against San Antonio. The star is dealing with a sore right knee. He has used the time off to focus on weight lifting and running. On the court, he’s worked on bending his knees and getting his legs back under his shot. Nowitzki said he hopes to play Sunday.

Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony won't play Saturday in Houston due to multiple injuries that kept him out of Friday's contest with Miami. Coach Mike D'Antoni said it is uncertain if Anthony will return Tuesday against Detroit. Anthony is dealing with wrist, thumb and ankle injuries.

Games of the day

West Virginia Mountaineers at No. 4 Syracuse Orange (-12, 139)

No. 16 Mississippi State Bulldogs at No. 13 Florida Gators (-9.5, 145)

Notable quotable

“I think he keys our success about as much as anybody because he makes it awful hard to score on us in tight when he’s blocking and altering like he is right now.” – Kansas coach Bill Self on center Jeff Withey, who’s averaging 4.4 blocks in Big 12 play. The Jayhawks visit Iowa State on Saturday.

Notes and tips

USC sophomore forward Dewayne Dedmon has a torn MCL and is out for the season, leaving the Trojans with six scholarship players. Dedmon, who suffered the injury in Thursday’s loss to Colorado, was averaging 7.6 points and 5.5 rebounds in just over 23 minutes per game. It’s the fifth season-ending injury for USC, which hosts Utah on Saturday night.

Wake Forest center Ty Walker (4.7 ppg, 5.6 rpg, 3 bpg) will be a gametime decision Saturday against Clemson after suffering a concussion in Wednesday’s loss to Florida State. Walker has blocked a league-high 26 shots in six ACC games.

Rob Gronkowski’s father, Gordy, revealed that the record-setting tight end is dealing with a high-ankle sprain. While Gronk missed practice again Friday and has significant ligament damage, he’s fully expected to play in the Super Bowl. It’s clear he will be at far less than 100 percent. The injury might allow the Giants to double-team Aaron Hernandez or Wes Welker. It also could affect hamper Gronk's normally powerful run blocking.

Armadillo: Saturday's six-pack

-- Orlando Magic lost by 26 in New Orleans a night after they blew a 21-point halftime lead in a home loss to Boston. Something is amiss.

-- Harvard crushed Yale 65-35, giving Crimson a leg up on an Ivy title. Teams still meet one more time, next time in Cambridge.

-- Knicks made just 12-41 inside the arc (18-43 outside arc) in a 99-89 loss in Miami. New York tried hard, just isn't good enough.

-- Kevin Costner's country band is coming back to Northern Lights in Clifton Park April 6. Saw them once; pretty good band.

-- Rarely have I seen a team hosed by officials the way Central Florida got hosed at Tulsa Wednesday. Hope they meet again this season.

-- Cleveland Browns hired Brad Childress as offensive coordinator; we can only hope this doesn't start up any Favre-to-Cleveland rumors.


*****************


Armadillo: Saturday's List of 13: Random thoughts on a winter day..........

13) Interested to see who they pair Murray State up with for Bracket Busters; unbeaten Racers’ toughest two games left in OVC are at #176 Tennessee Tech and at home against #189 Austin Peay- they ain’t losing either one of those games. Would they give Murray a game with Wichita State or Creighton or George Mason or VCU? We’ll find out soon.

12) There are four teams tied for first in Pac-12 at 6-2, one of which is Colorado, in its first year in league- they were a perennial also-ran in the Big 12. If Cal Bears win the Pac-12 tourney, this could easily be a one-bid league, which would really seem strange, but wouldn’t be at all unfair.

11) Last two years, CAA ranked #13/#12 in conference rankings; this year, they’ve slipped to #17 and are unquestionably a one-bid league.

10) You look at North Carolina’s stats; only 22.4% of their shots are 3-pointers, 4th-lowest percentage in whole country. You’d think they’d recruit one or two kids who can come in off the bench and bomb away against zones, but they haven’t. Just for the record, Samford leads the country, with 49.9% of its shots coming from behind the arc.

9) Oral Roberts-South Dakota are favorites in the Summit League; ORU is 11-0 in Summit League, and lost by 7 at West Virginia, by 6 at Auburn- they beat Xavier by 22 when the Musketeers were shorthanded by suspensions. ORU has a South Dakota State/North Dakota trip coming up, which will tell a lot about how the regular season will wind up.

8) Weber State beat Montana 80-64 in their first meeting; rematch is Feb 28, last game of regular season, and it could decided the regular season title in the Big Sky.

7) In the Northeast Conference, LIU-Wagner-Robert Morris are combined 24-12 out of conference, unusually good for this league. Bottom of the league is still awful, but the top is much-improved and there are a couple decent teams in the middle, too.

6) Teams that play among the fastest tempos in America: #3 UMass, #4 UNC, #8 DePaul, #10 New Mexico State……….teams that are among the slowest: Wisconsin-Virginia-USC-Wyoming-Cal Poly.

5) Teams that get to the foul line the most, always a positive trait: New Mexico State, Maryland, LIU, Gonzaga, K-State.

4) Teams that make the highest percentage of their foul shots: Weber State 80.5%, Denver 78.8%, Davidson 78.4%, Evansville 78.0%.

3) Teams that make highest percentage of their 3-pointers: Creighton 45.1%, Northern Colorado 44.7%, Indiana 44.5%, Murray State 42.1%.

2) According to kenpom.com, teams that have played the hardest schedules: Duke-Temple-Oklahoma State-Northwestern-Kansas.

1) Best FG% defense teams, this is usually a good indicator of strong teams. Wisconsin 39.5%, Kentucky 40.8%, Pitt 42.7%, Alabama 41.2%, Florida State 41.9%....in Pitt’s case, looks like its their offense that has let them down a lot this season, their worst in a long time.
