Jeff Borzello

Off-the-court storyline big in this one. Hoosiers won over Eric Gordon--will win here, too.

Indiana

Wildcats flying under the radar, but Bulldogs are on a roll lately and are tough to beat at home.

Georgia

Red Raiders won't pull off back-to-back wins over Kansas and A&M--can't stop Joseph Jones inside.

Texas A&M

Picked the Tigers to beat UNC last week, and look what happened. Won't be picking them again for awhile.
Duke

Jason Brubaker

Weber's kids came close to knocking off Badgers, they will finish the job against the Hoosiers.

Illinois

 

Georgia guards gave UK trouble last year, this year they finish the job against the Cats, who are still looking for consistent offense

Georgia

 

Can Tech handle success after beating Kansas? Aggies are a very poised team behind leader Acie Law IV and will pull out road win

Texas A&M

 

Upstart Clemson will battle hard, but like against UNC, Duke's defense will be able to shut them down as the Devils win at home

Duke

Kevin McNeill

The Illini are reeling after losing five of their last seven, the last one against Wisconsin being the most dispiriting.  An emotional letdown is likely.

Indiana

How do the Bulldogs bounce back from blowing an 11 point lead in the last five minutes at Alabama? By beating hated Kentucky at home.
Georgia

The Aggies are really hitting their stride, beating eight of their last nine opponents by double digits.

Texas A&M

Duke is finally playing like Duke, Cameron is still Cameron, and the Blue Devils don't lose to Virginia Tech and Clemson there in the same season.
Duke

Shawn Siegel

Hoosiers are on a tear, but picking road teams killed me (0-3) over the weekend.

Illinois

Cats swept Georgia last year and have been solid on the road so far.. plus its no fun if we all pick the same thing.

Kentucky

 

A&M hasn't won a road test yet.. but Jones & Kavaliauskas will be too much on the inside.

Texas A&M

If Paulus scores 10 or more, Duke will win.. he will.

Duke

 

Predicting Record

Brubaker (6-2), Borzello (5-3), Silver (4-0), Siegel (3-5), McNeill (2-2), Tomassini (2-2)
