Let's hope we start off hot this week.
I'm sorry for my appearance.
I got into an altered altercation with a, um, kitchen cabinet.
Um, had to get stitches.
My roommate stitch me up.
So I do apologize for the band aid on my face. I'm heavily.
It heals up pretty fast.
And you could just move on from that, Um, wasn't the best feeling thing, But whatever it happens, sometimes accidents happen.
We're gonna move past that, though.
In other news, Um, I just want to go ahead and let you guys know, um, about some big personal news for me.
Um, I'm actually gonna be coming on as one of the main directors for unwrapped university.
So you guys know I'm a part of unwrap Sports Network, one of the contributors for them, but I am currently just a contributor.
But now I am getting ready to, um, partake and becoming one of the directors for the Unwrapped University, which is just a subset of the unwrapped sports network.
Um, and obviously unwrapped university.
It's just gonna cover all college sports.
Um We tried this out a few years ago.
I wasn't a part of the network back then, but they tried it a couple years ago, and it never really took off.
But I'm really trying toe change.
How that works there with unwrapped university.
Get this thing rolling again.
Get college that college atmosphere back into the unwrapped sports network.
So pretty pumped about that, um, excited to get going.
And I'm speaking with one of our main directors and creators of the Unwrap Sports Network of Perry later so I could go ahead and get this thing rolling.
Um, so I'm pretty pumped and excited about that.
Hopefully Guy Zahra's.
Well, if you want to go ahead and shoot them a follow If you're interested in college sports giving them a follow on Twitter, it is at Unwrapped University.
That would greatly, I would be greatly appreciated by me as well as the rest of the unwrap sports that work, um, team as well.
Just do that for me if you will, um, other than that, let's just go ahead and jump into some news that I was able to grab for you guys over the weekend and today.
Here's a big weekend for LeBron James and company with the Lakers.
On Friday night, they beat the best team in MBA to Milwaukee Bucks.
And then on Sunday, um, they went on the road.
I guess you could say and played the l.
A Clippers and one not one pretty convincingly as well.
And that was with a full, fully healthy l A C squad.
Um, so big weekend for them that really I think it was a really big for LeBron um this weekend to go ahead and show what his team can do and what he can do and put his name back into that M V P race.
We kind of saw Johannes was starting to run away with it there.
But with these two big victories and you're honest being injured, I think LBJ has a serious chance to go ahead and get that M V P Trophy.
Um, cornerback Josh Norman has finalized a deal with the Buffalo Bills, and it's a one year deal.
I believe around $6 million.
So good for Josh Norman for finding another home, and the MBA has set a conference call.
Um, with team owners or governors.
I know they change that name.
Ah, and that's supposed to take place on Wednesday.
And it's all because of the escalating Corona virus and the outbreak of it.
Um, they're trying to see what the best, um, plan of action.
Maybe, um, for when they might have to start closing doors.
I hope they don't, Uh, personally, I don't think it's as serious as a deal is.
A lot of people are making it out to be, but anyways, um, precautionary is good.
Precautions are good.
So, um, whatever call they make, I'll be okay with it.
A cz Long as it's in the best entrance interest of the players.
Um, all a cc awards were announced today for college basketball.
Those in the a C C conference there.
The coach of the year was named to F s U head coach Leonard Hamilton.
Good for Cook Ham.
That is his third time winning the award.
Man of the Year in the A.
C C was given to F issue Ford.
Patrick Williams, rookie of the year, was named to Duke Center of Vernon Carey and Player of the Year in defensive player of the year was given to Duke guard Trey Jones.
Um, who's my favorite NBA team? I'm a big I've don't really have a specific favorite team in the n b A.
I started watching basketball, um, heavily when LeBron started coming around.
So I am a LeBron Stan always will be.
I'll follow him wherever he goes.
I started with Cleveland, moved to Miami back to Cleveland, went to L.
Now those are my teams, but I also like I'm more of a player guy when it comes in N v A.
My second favorite player is Dame Love Dane.
Time Ah, one of my favorite players to watch other than LeBron James, so probably wants LeBron leaves.
I'll probably become a a Portland Trailblazer fan.
Um, since Dame is up there with the Portland Trail Blazers until he moves.
Thank you, ese Alex, for the tip of 50 I really appreciate it.
Um, but let me jump into one last sporting news thing for you guys.
The latest in the last AP poll to drop before we jump into conference tournament time for college basketball was released this afternoon at noon, and there's a bit of a shake up Their number one is obviously Kansas to Gonzaga.
Dayton My My Florida State seminal was jumping into the top five.
Huge, huge, huge for us.
Um, coming in at number four.
Baylor dropping down.
We have San Diego State University at seven.
We have Creighton at eight.
Michigan State's We're seeing a Michigan State team that kind of had a real low in the middle of the season, jumping back into the top 10 here and then rounding out the top 10.
We have the Duke Blue Devils.
So pretty fascinating stuff jumping, getting in here into the college basketball, Ah, into the heavy parts of March.
So I'm getting excited.
I love these conference tournaments and I absolutely love the NCWO tournament.
Looking forward to dropping a, uh, excuse me.
Ah, bunch of different brackets out there is where all helping them in hoping to win some more money.
But, um, with that being said, let's go ahead and jump into these college basketball plays for you guys today.
Um, I don't know if you guys follow me on Twitter, but I dropped a hint.
I'm not gonna be covering any N b A games today.
There was only three on the slate.
If I were to lean towards one with the news of Eric Bledsoe just gonna be out from Milwaukee as well as you honest, I would lean towards Denver minus five.
But that's the only MBA play.
I would even I even want to think about touching right now.
I don't like that Atlanta game.
It's just too bad.
Teams Atlanta and Charlotte and, um, I forget what the other game was.
But it didn't excite me all that much for me to be able to go ahead and play it.
So, um, let's go ahead and jump in the first plane instead of away.
Tonight is gonna be the University of Illinois Chicago head.
They're taking on right state, right states favorite in this one by six points.
This gun can be seen on ESPN US 7 p.m.
Um, right states favored by six, but we're going to take the University of Illinois Chicago.
My boys of flames have been coming through for me down the stretch here, and I'm gonna keep writing them, so we're gonna take him.
This is the Horizon League, one of the Horizon League semifinals.
There's another semifinal on tonight after this one, and, uh, actually picked that one as well, but we'll stick with this one for now.
Um, you I see is 10 4 and one against the spread.
In their last 15 games, they're 14 5 again.
Four Excuse me 14 and five against the Spread and their last 19 games versus right state.
So it playing very well.
And they're also seven and one against the spread in their in their last eight games in March.
This is a March team.
I see Club is pretty much all seniors.
That's what they start.
That's what they finish with their very experienced.
So ride the vets in March.
That's what you wanna do.
Ride those guys who have the experience of playing in these tough, crucial games and minutes here.
So that's my whole pick.
I love this team.
I don't know why I have.
I faded one of the other teams I was doing it last week and picked you.
I see as the USC Youngstown State game and they came through for me again.
So I expect, um, that to continue here.
And I expect, um, right state to have a little bit of Russia's.
They haven't played in a little bit over a week, so expect them to come out a little slow, little rusty trying to figure things out while this USC teams already been playing in the conference tournaments.
Um, so I really expect usto keep this game very close here and cover the six points moving on.
We have Wofford headed the Terriers Wofford heading to East or not to, um, it is a socom championship game.
So, um, not at anybody's home.
Um, versus East Tennessee State University, E.
You or East Tennessee State University is favored in this one by six and 1/2 points.
And this game is gonna be our ESPN game tonight on at 7 p.
And we're gonna take E t s u R East Tennessee State University minus six and 1/2 points tonight.
It might have jumped up to minus seven and 1/2.
I feel comfortable taking it either way.
Um, like I said, this is the Southern Conference championship game.
So it's the last one for this conference tournament.
Maneaty issue is clearly the better team.
Between these two, they have the better record.
They look better.
Everything's going in their favour.
E t issue is also on an 11 game winning streak, so they were continuing to play very good.
And they actually just beat a very good surging.
Um, don't remember who was is like Western Carolina.
Excuse me? The Western Carolinas, playing real well recently and eat issues.
Put the smack down on him in the last game in this, um, conference tournament, Um, E T s U is five and one against the spread and their last six games over our versus a team with a winning straight up records.
So they play well versus teams who are above that 500 mark.
And E T issue has been great in this conference tournament, so I expect that to continue here.
That one's fairly plain simple broom hit hit E.
T s U minus six and half 97.
And in the last game that I'm gonna dig into for guys, it was a slur shorts late in college basketball, but I always like to pick out some college basketball games for you guys.
because it's just easier than envy.
A ones, Unless there's just some magnificent, magnificent ah discrepancy when it comes to one of the n B A Games, but the last one for college basketball tonight guys is gonna be Green Bay taking on the north of Northern Kentucky.
Northern Kentucky is favored in this one by five points, and this game could be seen on ESPN two at 9:30 p.m.
We're gonna take the underdog in Green Bay.
Plus, the five points were laying it right there.
This is the other Horizon League semi final.
I was talking about the other one being the USC game.
Um, and Green Bay in northern Kentucky split the Syria of the season series that here they went one on one against each other, and Green Bay is six and three against the spread in their last nine games overall and their five and one against spreading their last 6 March games to Green Bay.
Playing very well here down the stretch as well as in March, which I love here.
I love these March, uh, trends.
They are certain one of my favorite stats is one of the easy is this Marge trends? I don't know why I just love him so much.
Um, it just really tells you a lot about a team and how they come in.
Ah, mental wise and ready to go here in the most important time of the year for college basketball.
Um, Northern Kentucky is just one and four against the spread in their last five games overall.
Just two and five against the spread and their last 7 March game.
So not a very good march team versus a team who does play well on margin covers have spread.
Um, and this is gonna be the first game in over a week for northern Kentucky, much like we were talking about for, um, right state.
It's gonna be the same thing for northern Kentucky.
They haven't played in over a week.
They're gonna come out a bit rusty.
So look for that factor.
Look for them to try and figure things out early, and I expect to Green Bay to keep this one close, especially with him being a better team here down the stretch and in March, Um, those are the three place I was digging in for you guys today in college basketball, I've got three other ones that I'm also playing.
But I did not want to dive into him for you.
Um, I just want to keep this one short and sweet, and I'm not betting as much on these, so I didn't necessarily want to dig too deep into it.
Um, so these other plays are it's gonna be Gonzaga minus 13.
Taking on San Francisco.
We have BYU minus four, taking on ST Mary's and then Ah, North Dakota State minus one.
So go ahead and grab those weather there again.
