Rotation #676
Manhattan +15 over Utah (loss)
Both teams are on a bit of a slide, but it’s Utah with the new coaching staff and many new players in a new system.  The Utes have a few injuries, with Dusan Mahorcic being out until January and Marco Anthony questionable to play tonight.  Manhattan is an experienced basketball team with every player who plays significant minutes being a senior.  The Jaspers are excellent on the offensive boards and, I believe, will make this game very close as they should get the second chance points needed to stay in this game.  Anthony Nelson and Elijah Buchanan are great guards that share the ball well with their teammates.  I think the Jaspers can hang tight.  Take Manhattan.

Rotation #715
Houston +2 over Alabama (win)
Both teams have a lot of similar traits as they each play great defense and love to shoot the three-pointer.  Alabama plays uptempo, which is good against defenses that struggle, but against good defenses, you will see many possessions thrown away.  Kelvin Sampson is a top-level coach who will have his players active on the defensive side tonight.  The Cougars are busy with their hands and turn teams over a lot.  Houston’s players are built like football players and should be the more physical team tonight.  Look for the Cougars to get a big road win.  Take Houston.
