Editor's Note--Well FLORIDA certainly had it's chances last night. About 3 open 3 point shots down the stretch that were missed. Cost us a winning Saturday. How about them RAMBLERS from LOYOLA-CHICAGO? You really didn't want to go against a Catholic school on St. Patty's Day right? Slick Big Dick has 3 more sunny Sunday selections on the hardwood. For those who want to be in the know....Take it awaaaaaaaaaaaaay--R.B.
Yeah FLORIDA. Anyway, here comes Sunday....
The CUSE has been given a lot of grief for even making it into the tourney. All they've done is won. Twice. Mucho respecto for-o Tom-o Izzo and his Spartans, but 9.5 seems to be a whole lotta points for an ORANGEMEN team with a massive chip on their shoulder.....and GOOD guards. Not sure Michigan State plays well versus this great zone of SYRACUSE. Points work. Pal. Take.
Remember how we say we don't lay 2 in a basketball game? Well, sometimes we TAKE two. Auburn hasn't looked the greatest the last few weeks. CLEMSON did strong work versus a "wiseguy" pick, New Mexico State, in Round 1. Yes, it'll be close. But we feel the ORANGE TIGERS from South Carolina get the nod. Takey take.
Finally, UMBC dismantled Virginia in the craziest win in tournament history. Looks like Senor Bookmaker thinks they are a "one hit wonder". Retrieve some more money with the RETRIEVERS. 10 points might be a real gift. We like gifts. K-state is a mid-level team from a big conference. No reason to lay 10.
So the happy "2nd round of 32" recap: SYRACUSE+9.5 vs Mich St, CLEMSON+2 vs Auburn, UMBC+10 vs K-state.
Well, his boys from Gainseville hurt us last night, but he never hurt us. And speaking of "one hit wonders"? He was the opposite of that and we miss him a lot. Enjoy the games. Good luck and god bless. And if you NEED to know.....
