More College Basketball...

Great showing last night by Connecticut. Boy, did they look good. 5 players in double-digits. Marcus Williams -- a game high 11 dimes. He is back. UConn will be around in late March.

Tonights NCAAB pick,

--Hoosiers -2.5 over the Fighting Illini--

In conversations with a few diehard Illinois fans, no one has expressed confidence in the Fighting Illini. I have also gleaned the following...

Offensively, Illinois is 2 dimensional (Dee and Augustine). The Illini will get better as the season progresses with the maturity of Jamar Smith and Shaun Pruit, but at this point in the season DB and JA have combined to score nearly 60% of Illinois's points through 3 Big Ten games. Mike Davis will focus on Dee in particular, forcing the young Illini to step up and make plays.

Defensively, Illinois plays primarily man-to-man. IU will spread the floor with sharpshooters Vaden and Strickland, and with Killingsworth inside, the Hoosiers will create matcup problems for the Illini.

I know Indiana is coming off a poor showing against the Spartys, as Doing Lines himself properly prognosticated, but the Hoosiers match up much better against the Illini. IU wins this one by 10.

UJ - I like your pick. I'm going to post shortly about my thoughts on the total in this game.
