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.

My Basketball Picks: 6-6
A lot of the experts like Richmond as a tourney sleeper so they better win this game at home if they plan to have the chance.
I like Louisville but I dont like them to pull this upset on the road.
This pick stays unanimous. Theyve lost 2 of their last 3 but I dont like any of G-town's wins lately here and Nova's loses were on the road
Minnesotta can play anybody close apparently and they did beat Purdue already but I think the Boilers come prepared here and take care of business
Im gonna take the Buffs though they suck on the road honestly. They have the best player in what should be a good game.
Butler handled them in the first game but Butler's wins against lesser teams arent where Id like them to be each team is coming off a loss also
Syracuse has a 3 game losing streak noone saw coming and Marquette has a 2 game losing streak themselves. Goinng to go with the better team.
Guess I'll make this unanimous thus far also. Georgia knocked them off earlier in the year so Kentucky will be ready for them this round.
Another unanimous pick I believe so one of them has to be wrong lol
I believe WV has gotten me twice when ive picked against them so Im gonna roll with them this time
Missouri has lost both of their road conference contests and Texas is one of the hottest teams in the nation right now.
I need you to come through here Duquense...
