Toledo will be hard to beat at home so I expect them to cover.They can shoot from the outside and Miami only has a inside presence that hopefully TU can counter with some good 3 pt. shooting.

Thanks for that story link, Sloop.

I went ahead and took the 2.5. Mavunga has been playing hurt for some time and still doing okay.

This is curtains for Coles (as mentioned in that story) and at the very least I think I'll get whatever Miami's 100% effort is worth. Not like Toledo is any great shakes. Worst that happens is I blow a bet. Won't be the first time!

NRopp has a great write-up on VCU. I still love my Drexel pick, as I think this team's lack of depth is compensated by mental toughness, but anybody who's up in the air should definitely consider his pick.


Also should point in the Fairfield game that this is being played at the MassMutual Center in MA. Fairfield U is only 90 minutes from the arena, while Loyola MD has the farthest commute out of anybody in the entire MAAC. I find it hard to believe that Loyola will have nearly as great of fan support as Fairfield will; they're both small, private universities, but Fairfield has been basketball-relevant for a few years now, but this is Loyola's first winning season in 4 years.

I believe VCU beats Drexel in Richmond that game will be a gooder but VCU wins a close one. looking forward to seeing the rams and dragons in the bracket.

three other picks-

North Texas

Western Michigan

Gonzaga

Drexel -2.5 2h

Drexel is getting out-played in every dimension right now, they look lost offensively, and this crowd is going NUTS. So many ridiculous turnovers, and they are getting smothered by VCU's on-ball defense. But I still refuse to believe they lose this game by double digits.

gosh, what a tease on drexel. kinda got a bad line at +2. oh well. both of these teams deserve a postseason bid.

oral roberts comes into the tournament 17-1 and loses to WIU, who was the only team to lose to Centenary College last year. i keep getting the shaft on these monster favorites for ML parlays.

1-3 tonight, gonzaga pending...
