Wednesday's College Action

Penn State at Indiana. If the Hoosiers get swept by Penn State, they have hit a new low. Who's ending up at Indiana? Alford? Lavin?

Duke at Georgia Tech. Redick looking to pass Dickie Hemric as the ACC's all-time leading scorer, leading me to one question: Who the $%@# is Dickie Hemric?

LaSalle at George Washington. GW continues to laugh at nearby ACC competition. LaSalle has won seven in a row and has not raped anyone lately, so they could be dangerous here. Anyone remember when Lionel Simmons injured his hand playing video games?

Rutgers at Georgetown. I think I cursed the Hoyas by jumping on their bandwagon so heartily as they have since lost three straight. They should remedy that here, although Rutgers does quietly have 15 wins and Quincy Douby (27 ppg) might be the best player nobody cares about. He averaged 30 per in February, which is damn impressive in the Big Beast. Morrison and Redick are scoring more but they play in obviously much weaker conferences, especially Redick. I could get 15 a night in the ACC.

Colorado at Nebraska. Last week the Buffs beat Oklahoma and then blew a 12-point second-half lead to Kansas St and lost. Cuckoo, cuckoo.

Texas at Kansas St. After beating Colorado, Kansas St just looking to knock off another Big 12 contender.

Ohio State at Michigan State. Buckeyes haven't won in East Lansing in 14 years and are coming off loss at Wisconsin. And I'm hearing rumors of Thad Matta-to-Indiana. Crazy talk? Spartans have been tough to figure, but you get the feeling Izzo will have them primed come March as usual. Hopefully, more drunken MSU students wander onto the court. Good times.

Mississippi at Kentucky. Huge game for Cats as they must head to LSU and Tennessee after this, but I don't think Ole Miss could win in Lexington against the Cats' ladies team - in a good year. Ramel Bradley out indefinitely.

Tennessee at Florida. First game pitting ranked SEC teams this season. Ouch. Where have you gone Nolan Richardson and Dale Brown? Gators only 5-4 in their last nine.

LSU at Vanderbilt. LSU quietly 10-2 in the SEC, but I don't know if that's saying much.

Bradley at Northern Iowa. UNI tries to avoid sweep by Bradley, who isn't bad.

North Carolina at North Carolina State. If I hear one more comment about what a great job Roy Williams is doing, I'm going to puke. It's Norh Carolina! What do people expect? Wolfpack looks for better showing than their trip to Chapel Hill.

DePaul at Louisvlle. The Blue Demons renaissance begins NOW! A win here would actually get them (I think) into a situation where they presently win a tiebreaker for the last spot to make it to the Garden. Maybe. They'd have beaten Notre Dame and Louiville. Whatever. Just win, baby. Cardinals fading and have games with West Virginia and Marquette coming up.

Oklahoma State at Iowa State. You know what's hilarious? Oklahoma St's court has "Eddie Sutton Court" written in massive letters stretching almost from one free throw line to the other. Hysterical. They should dot the "i" with a shot glass.

San Diego State at BYU. Aztecs can clinch at least a share of conference title with win.

UTEP at Memphis. Miners are 9-1 in C-USA and have won 10 of 11. If they somehow win this, they'll be tied for first without another date with Memphis. But that isn't happening.

Tonight's likes...

Michigan State (-4.5) over Ohio State.

Bulls (-5.5) over Bucks.

Cavs (+1.5) at Sixers.
