Feast Week College Hoops: Wednesday Matchups

Wednesday Games:

Stanford vs #25 Wisconsin     

Line: Stan +7 o/u 141

Tv: Espn  3pt

Stanford opens the year losing their 3 best players, most notably Kentucky transfer Reid Travis, however they’re a young, yet feisty, up tempo team that should clash well against an experienced Wisconsin bunch. Two guys to look out for on this Stanford squad are KZ Okpala and Daejon Davis. Okpala has been lighting it up this year, whereas Davis has taken the reigns as their court general. Over on the badgers, Ethan Happ, is all you need to know about this group; he’s a do it all perimeter forward with a smooth stroke and a high basketball IQ. It’d be tough for anyone to shut him down but the Cardinal have been putrid defensively up to this point and he’ll shred em up with dribble drives and kick outs to sharpshooters D’ Mitrik Trice and Brad Davison. Ultimately, the Badgers will be too much for Stanford to handle.

Louisville vs #5 Tennessee 

Line: LOUIS +7 o/u 144

Tv: ESPN2  3pt

Now I’m gonna start this off by saying this, Tennessee, they’re huge, not Duke huge but still pretty big,(6’11 center and both wings 6’6 and up).They return all 5 starters this year, and are poised for a solid year under Rick Barnes. Keep an eye on Admiral Schofield, one of my favorite players in the country. Aside all the Pitino scandal, Louisville still has a ton of talent on this team. Look for Jordan Nwora to fill it up on the glass and in the paint on the Louisville attack. They’ve got a couple guards who can stroke the ball in Darius Perry and V.J. King. In the end though, the Volunteers size and physicality will be too much to handle for the Cardinals.

Tennessee 86 Louisville 74

Arizona State vs Utah State 

Line: Utah State: +4 o/u 152

Tv: ESPNU 9pt

Here it is folks, the sleeper matchup of the night. Utah State beat mid-major power St Mary’s pretty handily and for a squad that finished .500 last year, is looking like a team on a mission. Sam Merrill is the straw that stirs coach Craig Smiths’ drink, he’s a deadeye sharpshooter who can drive and dish it down low to his stud post star Neemias Queta. Arizona State on the other hand is coming off a win against #15 Mississippi State. Bobby Hurley’s group got off to hot start, deploying a zone defense to stifle MSU. They faltered slightly in the second half but still held on for a narrow win. ASU has true freshman wing/guard Luguentz Dort rising up draft boards and sophomore Kimani Lawrence knocking down shots, not to mention last years PAC-12 6th man of the year in Remy Martin. These teams matchup beautifully against each other and I’m looking forward to an up tempo and fun championship game in the Las Vegas Main Event tournament.
