Wednesday Picks: 10 Great Games

Boiler - You might be low in the standings but if you can hold your .771 rating you'll be up there in no time.

Lobo - We're tied by points but you're doing much better than I am (Percent of Possible Points: .765 compared to .728).  Husky is just killing us!  Last Saturday really killed me (52 pts) and really helped both of you (Lobo = 136 pts, Husky = 176 pts).

bkballer1129 - Looks like you were 5-3 because you spelled a few team names wrong:

9-Lousville over Providence
6-West Virgina over Notre Dame

I've corrected the typos. Yesterday's results: 5) bkballer1129: 21 points (7-3) .382.  Overall results: 15) bkballer1129: 260 points (49-21) .778

Real nice picks Lobo! Thanks Beer, 

Just call me the Procnosticator! I actually was leaning towards the Citadel too, since the status of Curry was unknown, but I hedged by bets since everyone else was picking them. We all are tied up! Now if I can just catch up to Husky!

Yet I'm still buried in the standings.  Guess that's what I get for missing the beginning/Saturday.
