Damn this week has felt like it has drug by.......I cannot wait for the games tonight

I think these matchups all depend on what team shows up......


If Mich St can hit and plays like they did against Louisville they can and will beat UConn, if they play like the beginning of the season they will be destroyed.

If Carolina plays to win and does not try to "out-talent" Nova, Carolina should win by 10-12 points.....They come into this game buying into their own hype and thinks they can win, because they have more talent..........Nova beats the ever living snot out of them. Nova is too good to be taken lightly

Carolina will definitely have to keep up the intensity on defense and dominate the boards to beat Nova.

The one thing that makes me feel good about this game, is that I don't think there's a snowball's chance in hell that UNC will come out flat like they did last year.

This has been the worst week, I have been nervous all week. I hate Nova's size, to win UNC has to and I mean HAS TO crash the boards.

If the Heels score 50 points in the paint (very likely) they'll win in a route.

Nova's going to punch UNC in the mouf. If that rattles the heels, Nova takes. If that wakes Carolina up, watch out

I agree Nova will smack UNC in the mouth but so long as UNC rebounds and plays their game I think they win by 15. I just hope Roy uses his timeouts if Nova starts getting on a roll, instead of just waiting for UNC to get their head in the game.

That is a terribly tough venue to shoot the ball in, and UNC and MSU have both played there. I suspect Villanova gets the punch.

I forgot about that win we had against Michigan State in December. We won at their home 98-63. I know they are a completely different team now.

Sparty refusing to back down. Even with fouls favoring UConn and Suton being a nonfactor, their pluck still has them in the lead.

Walker is absolutely dreadful from the stripe. 1-6 from the ft. ouch Can't win shooting from the FT like that.

Fouls don't mean much if Uconn isn't making the FT's and right now they are 12-21 from the line. As long as no one important on Mst fouls out early then MSt. should win it.

The way Summers, Green, and Lucious have stepped up, Sparty could survive foul outs. A Kalin Lucas foulout would be the only BIG trouble for them.

Nice the way the homecourt thing worked out for the Spartans...This game should be played in New Orleans every year.
