North Carolina (-10.5) vs Ohio

With or without Kendall, I believe Carolina will beat Ohio, but I'm not sure they'll cover the 10.5.


NC State (+8) vs Kansas

On paper, Kansas is the (supposed) better team. That said, NC State is peaking at the right time. I don't think Kansas covers, and I'm not surprised if State beats 'em straight up.

--

Syracuse (-3.5) vs Wisconsin

I'd be nervous about Syracuse even if Melo was playing, and extremely nervous w/o him.

I'd take Ohio, NC State, and Wisky w/ those lines. The most confident pick is Wisky.

Wiscy is a slow down team that "cheats" back on defense to stop the transition game. However, by "cheating" back on defense, they will not get second and third shots offensively. They will have to shoot at or above 50% to beat Syracuse if they work too hard to stop the transition game. Aside from that, I don't thing they go as deep as Syracuse and they will likely run out of gas by the end of the game.

* Cheating as mentioned above refers to keeping offensive players back from the boards and action to prevent the fast break, not an actual violation of the rules.

Big Ten team "cheating"? Scandalous! What next - free tattoos for the players?

If we play like we did against K-State we'll win. If we play like we did against UNC-A we'll lose. We've done the former, this season, far more than the latter. So I'm pretty confident.

The Heels will squeak out a win over Ohio - with or without Kendell - Ohio is playing some great ball, but UNC is just too much.

Kansas got a scare the other night, if they play like that again, they will lose, if the scare woke them up, State's run in the tourney is over.

Syracuse is going to feed on the haters, and blow out Wisconsin by 17.

Free tats for players is reserved for OSU, c'mon, you know that. 04-rock

Actually, "cheat" or cheat back" were terms an old coach of mine used to tell us guards to get back on D instead of working for the rebound.

I like the dismissive attitude toward Syracuse by the major media talking heads. I hope it fuels a fire in the hearts of the SU players.
