Bib's College Basketball Pick 'em: Round 1

Alright so here's how this is going to go.

I'll come up with 12 games every week. I'll have them up on Monday or Tuesday of each week. I'll only try to use teams from Major conferences or small conference teams that have a shot at being in the NCAA tourney, and I'll only choose games that are to be played on Friday - Sunday.

You'll pick the winners and post them here or on the GB10 thread, PM them to me, just get them to me. Whether you post them here or not, I will add them to the blog to make them easy to keep up with.

My thinking is that keeping up with the regular season will enhance your brackets come March.

Good Luck!

#10 Xavier at Cincinnati (6-1)

Texas A&M (6-1) at Alabama (5-2)

* Sunday *


#4 Gonzaga at Arizona (6-2)


My Picks:  6-6

Iowa State lost to Hawaii...and I don't remember the last time I heard anything about Hawaii basketball...well Obama but that was High school off to a good start!

first tough one, both teams put up over 100 in their last games, Memphis' defense leaves more to be desired but I'll take them in this road game and it ends early. . .

Butler is 8-0 but none of their wins impress me...not just who they've played but they haven't dominated anybody, Buckeyes have two great wins against tourney teams IMO close one but they got it done

6 losses between them...all on the road....Home team=Richmond 77-76!!! 1 point!!! ....whatever

wins over Ole Miss and Oregon by Utah made me put them on here, along with OU's close games one of which against the likes of Gardner-Webb, but Utah recently lost to Idaho St...so.... one of 3 games from saturday that I watched some of

New Mexico has the ability to pull the upset but they play close in good games, and have lost, in those games, to teams that are better than them make that 4...and this was ugly 103-70!!! I don't think anybody picked New Mexico

Their two losses are to Arizona and Arizona St., and they seem to be a much better defensive team than St. Mary's ...another close one 67-64

Duke and Pitt are the only teams to beat Duquense, and WV has been hot and cold, but I trust the Mountaineers to come through   WV by 5

Miss. St. took down North Alabama...and beat Alabama St. by 9, but I think South Alabama will take them, they need a win over a power conference team to pad their resume come March guess I took the wrong mid-major

Xavier has had a lot of close ones...but they've managed to pull them all off...so I have to go with them in this one good win

Alabama has only faced one Power conference opponent, and they got blown out....I want to pick them but with that result I just can't, plus A&M just beat Arizona Two OT games decided by 8 or more, means the loser wasn't supposed to win

if Gonzaga is REALLY for real this year, the first game they'll have an excuse to lose will be the Connecticut game Arizona got em...so I'm not sold on the Zags as a top 5 squad
