College Basketball Pick 'em: Round 8

Alright so here's how this works.

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.

Anybody can jump in at any time, I put the player with the highest weekly average amongst the winners for those who aren't here for every week.

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

Good Luck!

My Picks: 6-6

got to go with my gamecocks, lol, kinda mad that Kentucky lost already this week, but perhaps all that did was expose a formula for beating them, we had Ole Miss by 20 at one point when we were playing them, I think we're better than Kentucky man-for-man anyway now that we're as close to full strenght as we've been all season, especially down low now that Muldrow is back, my boys will be in the top 25 next week

BC lost the first matchup on the road by 8, I think they win this one at home...

Does florida make it 3 losses in a row for the Vols? I think so...

Houston is coming in haveing lost 3 of 4...maybe I picked them at a bad time...or maybe I set everybody up

Oregon St. was playing horrible basketball so seeing that they beat Cal hurts my perception of the bears but I still like them to win this game

I just don't see it happening for the Mountaineers. . .

the Boilers have bounced back nicely after their 0-2 conference start, but they've have too many close ones for me, the Wolverines get a much needed win

7-0 in the big east looks great until you look at who Marquette has beatten, Villanova is the only good team of the 7, G-town on the other hand has played most of the big boys, Marquette will come back down to earth eventually....G-town puts the first dent in their wings

I almost wanted to pick the upset but that's why I had 6 correct picks last week, got to pass on a couple

got to take the Huskies, they've been fairly dominant in conference play, should be a good game though, I may get it...if so I'll def. watch it

These teams are fairly evenly matched but most of you picked Missouri so Baylor it is, that's just the type of person I am

Just like Uconn I'll keep this pick unanimous as well

College Basketball Pick 'em: Round 8

8-4 with those two 1 point losses with VT and Kentucky. The Wildcats missed 3 of their final 4 free throws to lose the game. With that, Meeks hit the front of the rim from half court....

Coach Bib,

Sorry for the double entry. I picked Portland by accident, I meant to chose St. Mary's to win.
