Rotation #704
Tennessee -6.5 over Auburn (win)
Tonight’s game is an SEC Battle between two of the best defenses in the nation. We will experience a sweet sixteen-like setting this evening. There is little that separates either team, but Tennesse has played a significantly more challenging schedule. Bruce Pearl and Rick Barnes are future Hall of Fame coaches, so tonight’s game will be an instant classic. We are taking the Vols because they are at home and have mature guards like Santiago Vescovi, who will protect the ball and make plays. Home court means a lot in this matchup. The Vols are looking to stay tied for first as we wind down the regular season. Auburn should struggle without Jaylin Williams being healthy. Take Tennessee.

Rotation #743
St. John’s +1.5 over Butler (win)
Butler has won the last two matchups in this series, but the only one that matters is the most recent, as both team’s rosters have almost a 100 percent turnover. The only player St. John’s kept in the Rick Pitino era is star Joel Soriano, who had 14 points and 12 rebounds in the first matchup this season. The Red Storm have a slightly better offense but are much better on the defensive end. Rick Pitino should have his team ready to play against a Butler team lacking confidence, as they lost their last four contest. St. John’s can get themselves on the tournament bubble but can’t have any slip-ups. Look for Joel Soriano to lead his team and Daniss Jenkins to heat up from behind the three-point line. Take St. John’s.
