#1 Syracuse @ Maryland: Syracuse by 1
#1 Syracuse @ #14 Virginia: Virginia by 2Syracuse is barely favored at mediocre Maryland, which could lead to the spectacle of having the #1 team lose four straight games.
Syracuse pulls out a 2 point win at Maryland, so we don't get the spectacle of four straight losses, but they do lose to Virginia by 19 (!) points.
Virginia Tech @ #5 Duke: Duke by 31
VT loses by "only" 18.
#20 Michigan @ Purdue: Michigan by 3
A good chance for Purdue to steal a meaningless but satisfying upset.
Purdue loses by 1 point in OT -- but as Feinstein would say, that's what bad teams do.
#7 Cincinnati @ #21 Connecticut: UConn by 6
UConn by ... 6.
#8 Kansas @ Oklahoma State: OKSt by 5The PM may be the last believer in OK State (although they had a good win this week against Texas Tech). If the PM is to be believed, they have a good chance to beat Kansas next Saturday.
Yes indeed, you mockers! OKState wins by 7.
#11 Louisville @ #22 Memphis: Louisville by 3
A good illustration of how powerful the HCA is in college basketball.
Memphis wins by 6 in a game that Louisville led by 8 points or so with just a few minutes to go. Louisville is now 1-4 against ranked teams this season, which can't be a good sign.
#15 Iowa @ Minnesota: Iowa by 4
#11 Creighton @ Xavier: Creighton by 3.5
#17 Kansas State @ Iowa State: KSU by 4
#19 Texas @ Oklahoma: Oklahoma by 12
#25 Gonzaga @ St. Mary's: SMU by 2
We could easily see all the ranked teams lose.
Five ranked teams losing in the same weekend? Are you crazy?
Iowa lost, Creighton lost, Kansas State lost, and Texas lost. (Gonzaga won fairly easily.)Crazy like a fox. :-)
