Hello everyone! In case you haven't noticed, basketball is already in full force, and I have some games this week, that are definately worth tuning in to:


Well, if you like watching online this will be a great game to see. I honestly don't see why this game isn't on television. It will be interesting to see how Louisville plays without Peyton Siva, he is listed as doubtful after spraining an ankle. Let's see if Butler can come back after a loss at a good Evansville team. Siva isn't the first player to miss a game because of an injury this year. Junior Guard Mike Marra went down Sunday Night against Lamar, giving him a season ending injury.

Predicted Result: UofL:
67 Butler: 61


Vanderbilt dropped a game to Cleveland State last week, how will they respond to an ACC opponent on the road. Now don't get me wrong, North Carolina State certainly doesn't have the talent Duke, North Carolina, and Florida State do, but they will still have a hostile environment that Vandy will have to deal with.

Predicted Result: Vanderbilt:
78 NC ST: 69


Don't get be wrong, Iowa is NOT a tournament team yet. But NOBODY in the big team should sleep on this team in a game. They are tough, and they will be a team to watch out for to make a run to the NIT. They return most of their players and gain a couple too. I believe the Big 10 is the DEEPEST Conference in the Nation, not saying their the best, but their teams are better top to bottom than the other conferences in my opinion. Now to Creighton. Creighton is a tournament team for sure, and this is one of the many games they have coming up that they can prove themselves. They have the POTENTIAL to be a Top 25 team, but they have to get past a worthy Major Conference team first.

Predicted Result: Creighton: 61 Iowa: 54
