Saint Louis vs VCU

Rotation #613
Saint Louis -3 over VCU (loss)
VCU has done so much this year with very little starting experience, but tonight they will be without NahShon Hyland which leaves they down minus a guard.  St. Louis is one of the few teams that can match VCU when push comes to shove.  Both teams are physical basketball teams and this will make for a great defensive matchup.  Travis Ford is a heck of a coach and I believe the Billikens will cash the ticket tonight as they are the more experienced and healthier team.  Take St. Louis.

Rotation #621
Georgia Tech +3.5 over Virginia Tech (win)
Georgia Tech has 4 excellent guards which makes them capable of beating any team on any given night.  This is a very experienced unit and I believe they hold the edge here against a VTech team that is still without Tyrece Radford and will be facing a Yellow Jackets team that protects the ball and forces turnovers.  Virginia Tech is not a great team at forcing their own turnovers so they really need to hit a high percentage of their shots and three point shots.  The Yellow Jackets are the healthier team and their excellent guards should heat up in the game.  Take Georgia Tech.

Rotation #623
Notre Dame +4.5 over Louisville (loss)
The Cardinals are banged up as they are missing a few players.  The good news is they are getting Malik Williams back into the rotation, but he is on a limited pitch count as far as minutes go.  This is a team that just doesn’t have much experience playing together.  Notre Dame protects that basketball and can hit the three point shot well.   I don’t think the Cardinals can turn Notre Dame over enough tonight to match their point production.  Take Notre Dame.
