Additionally on the record, we could see famous bluebloods like North Carolina, Kentucky and Kansas generally go down to unranked meeting rivals — that's right, we've moved toward that season.


Furthermore, gracious definitely! The reigning champ Villanova Wildcats? They could likewise go down! What a tomfoolery few days of school ball we have ahead!


Get the lager and chips, now is the right time to roll!


Greatest Games of the Weekend


NO. 9 FLORIDA STATE AT NO. 4 VIRGINIA (GAME OF THE WEEKEND) (SATURDAY, 3:00 PM ET) (TV: ESPN2)


Investigation: Umm.. For what reason is ESPN's Basketball Power Index giving Virginia (12-0) a 92.4% possibility dominating this match? I comprehend it's at John Paul Jones Arena and the Hoos have the second best guard in the country, yet all the same come on, it's the No. 9 group in the country they're playing — and Florida State (12-1) is without a doubt. A 21-point victory prevail upon rival Florida, triumphs over positioned No. 19 LSU and negative. 15 Purdue, and one more quality win over Connecticut is apparent of this also. It doesn't really matter to me what the rates say, this will be a slugfest.



In hostile creation, the Seminoles hold the edge with a blasting 81.3 PPG, this contrasted with the Cavaliers' normal of 74.7 — the groups are almost indistinguishable in shooting. (However, virginia: 47.5 FG%//Florida State: 47.0 FG%) Here's where UVA dominates FSU totally: on edge side of things, the Hoos have been fantastic this season — just permitting a world class 51.4 PPG against them to make them sit at the No. 2 situation in the country. Be that as it may, the Noles haven't been too pitiful themselves, setting up a 68.4 PA count.


Notwithstanding the extreme distinction in guards, Virginia will in any case have to score to stay aware of FSU's offense — their safeguard will just take them such a long ways against the Seminoles' creation, however I see Florida State being contained more than typical. Something else that will be fascinating to watch in this game is the fight on glass — FSU has a +3 advantage in bouncing back. (Florida State: 37.1 RPG//Virginia: 34.6 RPG)


Follow however from prior? This won't be an UVA blow away like ESPN thinks, this will be a fight as far as possible. I truly do see Virginia hauling it out, there's no question about that, yet not without a panic from a Seminoles group who is ready for March.


Expectation: Virginia 71, Florida State 68


NO. 8 MICHIGAN STATE AT NO. 14 OHIO STATE (SATURDAY, 3:00 PM ET) (TV: FOX)


Examination: You need to cherish these sort of games. In addition to the fact that this is a matchup between two Top 15 groups, however it's a fight between powerful offense (Michigan State) and shut-down safeguard (Ohio State). Obviously, you can anticipate an extremely engaging one in Columbus.


At the point when you take a gander at the hostile numbers, Michigan State (12-2) has been superb this season putting down an insane 87.6 PPG — positioning ninth in the country. That is a +9 advantage over an Ohio State (12-1) offense that hasn't been that terrible this season possibly, they put down 78.0 PPG. The two groups shoot perfect also. (Michigan State: 50.2 FG%//Ohio State: 48.0 FG%) on edge side, the Buckeyes' protection enjoys the benefit — a +7 one that midpoints 61.9 PA contrasted with the Spartans' 68.4 — notice that is all there is to it like the OSU-MSU correlation on offense, the Spartans don't fall a long ways behind Ohio State on safeguard. Generally, we have a really adjusted game on paper. However at that point we get to the bouncing back game: The Spartans have a wide-sized +8 edge over the Buckeyes, sitting at a world class 44.0 RPG — OSU just comes in at 36.8 RPG in examination. That is probably going to be the distinction producer in this game with the Buckeyes being at home.



The Spartans get a significant danger from the Buckeyes, however late bounce back and additional opportunity focuses get Michigan State back to East Lansing securely with a triumph — beginning gathering season directly over an opponent.


Expectation: Michigan State 74, Ohio State 73


NO. 21 INDIANA AT NO. 2 MICHIGAN (SUNDAY, 4:30 PM ET) (TV: CBS)


Examination: The Michigan Wolverines (13-0) come in as perhaps the best group in the country, however Indiana (11-2) doesn't coordinate seriously with them — sort of. The Hoosiers should be phenomenally cautious, since, supposing that they don't watch it, things could go crazy for them rapidly and the paper will be totally tossed through of the window. We'll get to why here in a moment. read more


The Hoosiers enjoy a strong benefit in all out attack mode side of things, they normal 78.9 PPG — a +5 advantage over Michigan's 73.2. Indiana likewise takes shots at a first class pace of 52.9 FG%, blowing away a strong number from the Wolverines at 46.7 FG%. However, here's the reason in the event that the Hoosiers don't keep an eye out, Michigan could begin constructing an extended lead: The +9 advantage that the Wolverines have at protection, and at home, and in addition to that: The safeguard is insane world class genuinely. They sit at third in the country just permitting 55.1 PPG against them. In correlation, Indiana rates at 64.0 PA in their net. The glass game shouldn't have a weighty effect in this one, the two groups are basically the same with Michigan having the thin influence, 37.2-36.8.


With the Hoosiers scoring almost 80 focuses per-game, I see them staying up with Michigan — in this way I figure the previous situation doesn't occur, yet additionally remember that it's a genuine chance with the manner in which the Wolverines have been playing. What I'm talking about is: I don't figure it will work out, yet it could work out. Additionally, my stomach is letting me know that also, yet I'll wager with my head on this one — I'm certain I'll lament that, as usual. (Watch Michigan blow them out.)


Forecast: Michigan 69, Indiana 66


NO. 24 NEBRASKA AT NO. 25 IOWA (SUNDAY, 5:30 PM ET) (TV: BTN)


Examination: Statistically, records-wise and in the 벳무브 rankings, this game is a draw. Yet, there are two huge edges that each group has. For Iowa (11-2), it's being on their home court at Carver-Hawkeye Arena. For Nebraska (11-3), their first class guard positions twelfth in the country.


How about we start with the offense: Both groups come in strong averaging north of 80 focuses each, with the Hawkeyes having the limited 83.2-80.2 PPG normal. The two groups are almost indistinguishable, with the Cornhuskers holding a 0.2 edge. (Nebraska: 47.4 FG%//Iowa: 47.2 FG%) The numbers are the same way on the bouncing back end: The Cornhuskers enjoy the tight benefit pulling down 37.6 RPG, and it can't draw much nearer with Iowa counting 37.5. However, here is the greatest indication of the game: The safeguard of Nebraska, they're tip top at No. 12 in the country just averaging 57.8 PA — that is overwhelming a Hawkeyes safeguard that hasn't been the best this season averaging 71.0 PA.


It ought to be an engaging game in general, a genuine battle, however I'm not wagering against Nebraska's safeguard in that frame of mind with Top 25 force — even out and about. Cornhuskers hold Iowa to 70 for the success.


Forecast: Nebraska 75, Iowa 70


Upset Row

NO. 15 NORTH CAROLINA AT PITTSBURGH (SATURDAY, 12:00 PM ET) (TV: ACCNE)


Investigation: Welcome to the game show Upset Row, fine people! What's more, our most memorable contender is… North Carolina (10-3)! Live from… Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania! Presently Johnny! OK, on a serious note: The Tar Heels should be placed on huge bombshell alert in this one — in addition to the fact that they are out and about, however Pittsburgh (10-3) comes into the game with a first class protection.


We should begin with the offense, in any case, on the grounds that UNC are a lot of beasts in this division. They put in a bursting 92.3 PPG, coming in at fourth in the country in general. That is a fantastic +15 advantage for the Tar Heels over Pitt, who sets down 77.4. (North Carolina: 48.1 FG%//Pittsburgh: 46.3 FG%) Here's where things get a piece terrifying for the Heels, nonetheless: The Panthers have a +11 advantage, and really rank 36th in the country (which is perfect in school sports) with a 62.2 PA count. North Carolina hasn't been the best, sitting at 73.1. However at that point it gets unnerving for Pitt once more: UNC counters them with their bouncing back. The Tar Heels have been inconceivable on the glass this season, averaging 44.0 RPG. However Pitt hasn't been terrible this year, they have a - 6 disservice with 38.5.


Give me Pittsburgh to frighten the pants off of North Carolina, yet not ready to contain Cameron Johnson and the Tar Heels' first class offense enough for the success.


Forecast: North Carolina 76, Pittsburgh 75


NO. 13 KENTUCKY AT ALABAMA (SATURDAY, 1:00 PM ET) (TV: ESPN)


Investigation: A great deal of specialists and fans are foreseeing that this game will go down to the last ringer, and Alabama (9-3) might actually pull an unglued about positioned blueblood Kentucky (10-2). Nonetheless, I conflict. I think the Wildcats have very great influence in this game, in any event, being out and about. I don't figure UK will win by a victory using any and all means, however a five or six point triumph is practical for them out and about — which would be a strong SEC win to kick things off in meeting season. (Additionally recall that for the spread.)


What's more, here's my primary thinking for that: Kentucky enjoys the benefit in a real sense each classification. In all out attack mode side of the ball, the Wildcats have a decent +7 advantage over the Crimson Tide — they stack up a smooth 83.1 PPG count, while Bama sits at 76.5. Kentucky likewise have the better shooters at 49.3 FG%, Alabama sits at the 45.7 imprint. The safeguards are very comparable on paper, with UK having the 69.4-71.3 PA edge. In the bouncing back game, the numbers are essentially indistinguishable with the two sides sitting at the 39 imprint — The Wildcats normal 39.3 RPG, while the Tide gather 39.0.
