December 56-59

I normally do much better in January.  If I don't, my hoops season will come to an early end 

Hofstra +9

Neither team can score very well.  In sloppy games I love taking the points.

Marquette -6


I'm a UConn almuni and fan, but I think this game goes to Marquette.  They shoot and rebound better, and they're playing at home.  UConn is particularly bad on the boards, ranking 310th in the nation for rebounds per game.  I think the better shooting Golden Eagles (ranked 24th in the nation for FG%), having a few more scoring opportunities, will eventually wear down my Huskies.

Good luck today

Not a good card today but I lean Marquette with you. There are some nice spots later in the week. Don't force it and you will be fine. You know your stuff!

Actually it's cards like this I typically do very well on, I don't know why.  Days that have huge cards I seem to do below average.

And that's why I never play 1H/2H plays!

2-2 With Marquette pending.

What's shocking to me is Maryland lost the turnover battle to IUPUI.  A sign of things to come or just sloppy play after holiday break?  Time will tell...
