‘Winless’ can aid us

Dec 5, 2006 3:28 AM

Entering Sunday’s action, there were 21 unbeaten teams in college basketball and nine winless.

Let’s focus on the bad, because there’s less of them and therefore a greater opportunity at cashing in on their failures. They are:

San Jose State, Southern U, Alcorn State, Nicholls State, St. Francis (NY), Morgan State, Iona, Dartmouth and Delaware.


Wofford at Clemson: Tigers cruise in mismatch. CU.

Arizona vs Louisville: Both teams score in bunches. OVER.


ODU at Va Tech: Dominion could surprise with Hokies likely focused on ACC foes. ODU.

Providence at Florida: PC not nearly best of the Big East. It would take that to threaten Noah’s bunch at O’Connell. FLA.

Memphis at Tenn: Calipari would love to stick to the Orange in Nashville. MEMPHIS.

San Jose State at BYU: One of the two teams in this game was on that winless list. BYU.


Alabama at Notre Dame: The Tide among the unbeaten. Notre Dame majors in knocking off elite teams at home. ND.


Canisius at Marist: We’re hoping spread isn’t that high. MARIST.


Indiana at Kentucky: Indiana lost to Butler and Duke. Kentucky fell to North Carolina. Both are going to the NCAA’s. INDIANA.

Tex A&M at UCLA: Aggies another of the unbeaten. They gain a break playing UCLA at the Pond and not Pauley Pavilion. A&M.

Cincy at Temple: The Owls have been blowing people out in the early going. Cincy not the same without Huggy Bear. TEMPLE.

Cleveland St at Ohio St: Oden had his coming out party earlier than expected against Valpo. The second game is better. OHIO ST.


Maryland at BC: A homecoming for Terps coach Gary Williams, who began at Boston College. Maryland is a proven success on the road. MARYLAND.
