    On the college hardwood for College Hoops:
    A lot of work to be done before January closes.

    Providence HC Ed Cooley has taken this year’s team and guided them to 13-7.
    Watching the Friars play multiple times this year, they’re “overachievers” —
    Off back-to-back Big East wins, they’re stepping up in class against the
    reigning and defending NCAA champion Wildcats, and right now,
    the GQ-dressed-to-the-Nine’s Jay Wright’s team is in prime form.
    They’ve picked up their defense big time – and their D is true Team-D !!!!!

    They’re driving into the paint making a lay-up or getting fouled, getting
    quickly into the Bonus (78% on FT) or they kick it out = wide-open 3.
    …Pick a Philly Poison.

    Nova has won & covered 4 in a row since their lone loss to Butler on Jan 4th.
    All 4 of the wins have come by double-digits, and in 3 of those 4 games,
    the ‘Cats were double-digit fav’s. The ‘Cats have now covered 6 of 8 at home,
    and 12 of 18 lined games overall. Look for them to stretch it today vs. the Friars.

    Villanova is 7-1 straight up the past 8 series meetings, but that 1 loss did come
    almost one year ago today on the Wildcats home court in overtime — Villanova
    will remember that loss & Pound Providence who lost 2 key players to the NBA.

    Starting with the champs, ‘Nova…
    They get upset if it hits the rim.
    All Net = Nova.
    VILLANOVA -17.

    Until someone knocks them off, Kansas is dominating play.
    For the Big Dance, a squad needs a stud point guard —
    Kansas has 2 !!
    KANSAS -16

    Stallings leaving Vandy + no stops = a lesser squad, and off year
    —> Florida rolls -11.5

    FSU – 1.5
    SMU -7
    UC DAVIS +2
    Ole Miss -1.5
    Towson -5.5

    and Zona

    and both will fail.
    the Bruins
    roll to easy wins.

    Indy is waiting for a weaker-than-normal Go-Green group: Indy -4.5

    TCU’s head coach working miracles
    Jamie Diskson = Coach of the year…

    Baylor better watch out… TCU +3
    — makes for a very good teaser…

    Stanford playing better,
    covered against UCLA,
    no Brooks in the lineup

    STANFORD +14.5


    • Author

    Miami +9.5

    No Coach K., so no in-game adjustments, and
    No Jefferson, so no post-presence for Dukies.

    Jefferson leads the team in rebounding,
    averaging over 10 rebounds per game.
    In the two games he’s missed,
    Duke has averaged 31 rebounds per game,
    well below it’s season average of 36.4.

    Duke’s conference play = losing 3 of 5.
    Most recent home win was a rather uninspiring victory over Boston College,
    just hanging on to win by a score of 93-82.

    Vegas says take them to win today’s game against ACC rivals Miami by a double-digits
    but history shows that might be tough because Canes have won the last 2 meetings S.U.
    including a 90-74 win at Cameron Indoor Stadium last January when Duke was stronger.

    Canes always give Dukies a very tough game,
    and they’re 7-0-1 in their last 8 games as the visitor in this series.
    In Graytson Allin scored 23 points in the loss to Louisville, but committed 6 huge turnovers.
    The junior guard is walking on thin ice for tripping everybody who beats him,
    and his every move will be extra scrutinized and wistled.

    Conference rival who’s a winner getting nearly 10 pts is a pretty good play !!

    Arizona & Minnesota get tests today,
    and show that they are both for real.


    • Author

    17.5 pts in an in-state conference rivalry is a lock,
    but tremendous trends are ending, like Ohio State
    vs. Northwestern (OSU’s last loss to NW in 1977),
    22 yrs (18 January 1995) streak of Duke vs NCST
    MUST DIE Tonight….

    Big test for the Jayhawks
    against PRESS VIRGINIA!

    Mason has not faired too well
    at home vs WV & awful in WV
    too turned over hurts his shot

    Kansas has great guard play,
    but no post game to count on,
    so no inside play will cost ’em.

    Press will tire out a thin bench.

    Louisiana Tech played with only FOUR players against UAB
    after everyone else ejected after fight. UAB of course WON.

    All-time 15-0 streak of domination of Santa Clara by BYU


    • Author

    Gonzaga’s only unbeaten left,
    & only St. Mary’s home court
    & a hot 3 pt night from BYU
    in Utah & then in a rematch
    can hand the Zags a loss…

    Seeding for a lossless Zags
    coupled w/ their best squad
    can spell their first run into
    the Elite Eight, poss further.
