Opening Lines: -15½, O/U 135½
Television: ESPN2

Richmond Spiders: The Spiders (9-2 straight-up, 2-6 against the spread) head to Lawrence in search of their sixth consecutive win and third straight on the road. Richmond's offense has been finding the net with regularity during the five-game winning streak, sinking at least 50 percent of field-goal attempts in four of the victories. The Spiders are led by Derrick Williams, who is scoring 14.8 points and hauling down 7.2 rebounds per game. Darien Brothers is also averaging 14.8 ppg and has converted 28-of-54 shots from 3-point range.

Kansas Jayhawks: Off consecutive double-digit covers, the Jayhawks (8-1 SU, 4-5 ATS) bring a seven-game winning streak into Tuesday's contest and are a perfect 5-0 at Allen Fieldhouse. Kansas smoked Belmont on Saturday, 89-60, to easily beat the 12-point line, and it was the third consecutive game the team shot 50 percent or better from the field. Ben McLemore leads KU with 16.1 ppg while also grabbing 5.6 rpg. Jeff Withey, the nation's leading shot blocker (5.6 per game), is also contributing 13.8 ppg while topping the Jayhawks with 7.6 rpg.

Opening Lines: NC State -7 O/U 141
Television: ESPN2

Stanford Cardinal: A long trip east marks the first true road test for the Cardinal (7-3 SU, 5-4 ATS), who shook off some rust last Saturday with a 75-52 win over UC-Davis. A 13-day layoff showed with the team sinking just 37.3 percent from the field, but Dwight Powell's team-high 20 points helped Stanford backers collect on a 19-point spread. Powell leads the Cardinal, averaging 14.8 ppg, and the team ranks 35th in the country, converting better than 75 percent of free-throw attempts.

NC State Wolfpack: Mark Gottfried and the Wolfpack (7-2 SU, 4-2-1 ATS) continue a six-game homestand with this tilt vs. Stanford. North Carolina State returned to the floor Saturday following a week off with an 84-62 decision vs. Norfolk State, and the 'Pack continued its Division-I-best field-goal percentage mark (52.7 percent) by sinking 31-of-54 attempts. Richard Howell had a huge game on the glass with 19 boards to go with his 12 points, and freshman TJ Warren tallied 21 points off the bench by connecting on nine of his 11 shots from the field.

No. 9 Kansas looks to extend win streak hosting Richmond

RICHMOND SPIDERS (9-2)

at KANSAS JAYHAWKS (8-1)


Allen Fieldhouse – Lawrence, KS
Tip-off: Tuesday, 7:00 p.m. ET
Line: Kansas -15.5, Total: 135

Richmond will get its first major test against a ranked opponent as No. 9 Kansas hosts them at Allen Fieldhouse on Tuesday night.

Bill Self’s Jayhawks have yet to be challenged since their early season loss in the Champions Classic to Michigan State, winning seven straight games, six by more than a dozen points. They feature one of the nation’s top freshmen in Ben McLemore (16.1 PPG), but the Spiders own a capable defense that has held six of their nine opponents to 60 points or less on the season. Containing the Jayhawks at home is always difficult however, as Kansas looks to extend the nation’s second longest home winning streak (27 games) in this contest.

Can Richmond keep the final margin relatively close on Tuesday? For the answer, connect to College Basketball Best Bets for all the Expert picks throughout the entire 2012-13 season. The StatFox experts have been sizzling in the past four days, going a collective 21-7 ATS (75%) from Friday through Monday. StatFox Dave is 8-1 ATS and StatFox Scott is 6-1 ATS over this stretch. The experts now have a collective 53.4% ATS mark (135-118-6) in college basketball Best Bets for the season, led by StatFox Gary, who is 57.4% ATS (27-20) for the season, while Dave is at 56% ATS (50-40-2) on the year. StatFox Brian's 4-1 ATS run put him at 51% ATS (30-29-2) for the season.

The Spiders attack is led by two scorers who average 14.8 PPG in Darien Brothers and Derrick Williams. Brothers (1.2 SPG) has shot phenomenally to start the year at 50% FG and an even better 52% clip from long range, hitting 2.5 treys per game. Williams, a post player, leads the team with 7.2 RPG and has also been efficient from the field, making 60% of his shots. The tiny 5-foot-8 Kendall Anthony (13.9 PPG) is also an effective scorer, hitting 1.7 threes per game while Cedric Lindsay runs the offense with 10.7 PPG and 4.4 APG while only turning it over 1.6 times per contest. Senior forward Greg Robbins (7.0 PPG, 3.5 RPG) is the other guy to watch out for on this Spiders squad—even though his numbers don’t pop off the page. He can shoot when called upon and is perfectly capable of guarding the perimeter, averaging 1.2 SPG. Richmond averages 8.8 SPG on the season.

McLemore is the early favorite for national freshman of the year honors and is only getting better with 20.7 PPG in his past three contests. But the rock of this Kansas squad is its true center Jeff Withey (13.8 PPG, 7.6 RPG) who has developed into more of a scorer this season, even though he is typically known for his defensive prowess. And he is the premier post defender in the nation with a staggering 5.6 BPG. Travis Releford (13.2 PPG) has been a key presence as the team’s third and final double-digit scorer while Elijah Johnson (9.8 PPG, 43.8% FG) has struggled shooting the ball, but has succeeded passing the rock with 5.1 APG. Senior forward Kevin Young has also been a key veteran presence on the squad, putting up 6.5 PPG and 6.4 RPG in just 18.3 MPG.

No. 25 NC State hosts Stanford on Tuesday

STANFORD CARDINAL (7-3)

at NORTH CAROLINA STATE WOLFPACK (7-2)


PNC Arena – Raleigh, NC
Tip-off: Tuesday, 9:00 p.m. ET
Line: NC State -6.5, Total: 143

Stanford will be tested flying across the country to take on a talented, but underperforming, No. 25 NC State squad in Raleigh on Tuesday night.

The Wolfpack’s problem has not been the offense, which is shooting 52.7% from the field, the best rate in the nation. Freshman TJ Warren has led that effort with an incredible 69.1% FG, including 64% from deep, the best rate of any freshman in the nation. The Cardinal, on the other hand, have been terrible from the field (39.8% FG) with key players such as Chasson Randle (35.8% FG, 21.6% 3-pt FG) struggling to make buckets.

Can the Wolfpack win convincingly on Tuesday night? For the answer, connect to College Basketball Best Bets for all the Expert picks throughout the entire 2012-13 season. The StatFox experts have been sizzling in the past four days, going a collective 21-7 ATS (75%) from Friday through Monday. StatFox Dave is 8-1 ATS and StatFox Scott is 6-1 ATS over this stretch. The experts now have a collective 53.4% ATS mark (135-118-6) in college basketball Best Bets for the season, led by StatFox Gary, who is 57.4% ATS (27-20) for the season, while Dave is at 56% ATS (50-40-2) on the year. StatFox Brian's 4-1 ATS run put him at 51% ATS (30-29-2) for the season.

Six-foot-10 PF Dwight Powell (14.8 PPG, 6.9 RPG) is Stanford’s top scorer, though he is a better shooter than he is a rebounder, where he will have to step up against C.J. Leslie and Richard Howell who combined for 17.3 RPG for NC State. Powell has drastically improved in his junior season however, making 56.3% of his field goals, up more than 10% from last season. Josh Huestis (8.5 PPG, 8.2 RPG) joins him in the post and he is a strong rebounder despite being just 6-foot-7. Chasson Randle (14.4 PPG) is truly the X-factor of this team, putting points on the board despite his inefficiency from the field. He is coming off a 4-of-13 shooting performance against UC Davis, and things won’t get easier for him against this athletic NC State squad.

Warren has been the biggest surprise for the Wolfpack, but the team is also led by three seniors in Howell, Leslie and Lorenzo Brown. Howell (14.1 PPG, 9.6 RPG) is averaging nearly a double-double, while Leslie (12.9 PPG, 7.7 RPG) has also been good offensively, despite his 3.0 TOPG. He's averaging 15.2 PPG and 9.0 RPG over his past five games. Brown (11.7 PPG, 6.0 APG) is a strong, pass-first point guard but has also struggled with sloppy ball handling with 3.8 TOPG. Scott Wood (9.3 PPG) adds a sharp-shooting presence from the perimeter. Even though he’s shooting just 39.7% from the field this season, he’s hitting 40.4% of his shots from deep, averaging 2.1 threes per game. And as Rodney Purvis (9.8 PPG on 44% FG) continues to improve—he’s coming off back-to-back double-digit scoring performances—this team should only get better throughout the season.

All the top college basketball teams continue to jockey for position heading into the New Year in preparation for conference play which will really begin to heat things up.

The following is a brief look at the top matchups for each day this week along with a few facts and figures to help handicap the games.

Richmond has had little problem putting the ball in the hoop this season with an average of 73.5 points a game but it has struggled under the boards with just 31.8 rebounds.

Kansas should continue to move up in the polls after pasting Belmont this past Saturday 89-60 as a 12-point home favorite.
