What to Watch

Virginia vs. Duke

Calvin’s Pick: “I choose the Duke Blue Devils because of their up-tempo offense and of Duke’s two leading scorers Kyle Singler and Nolan Smith. Smith is averaging 18.6 points per game along with Singler averaging 17.5 points per game. Duke has a lot of depth and has players who can come off the bench and get the job done as well as the starters.”

Marc’s Pick: “Well, first off, anyone who watches college hoops would agree that Duke is a far better team than Virginia. Like Calvin previously stated, Duke has a lot of depth on their roster and has players on the bench that can play anywhere on the court and do the job that they are supposed to do. This should be an easy game for Duke if they play the game the way they have been.”

Purdue vs Minnesota

Calvin’s Pick- “I choose Minnesota over Purdue because I feel that this game will be a big upset in the college basketball world. The Golden Gophers’ leading scorer is Blake Hoffarber; he also leads the team in three-pointers per game which is 2.9 per game. Hoffarber leads the team in points per game too, with 13.8 per game. For Minnesota to win they need Blake Hoffarber to have an outstanding game.”

Marc’s Pick- “I am taking Purdue to beat Minnesota because Purdue is the better team and has better players in my opinion. JaJuan Johnson and E’Twaun Moore are the team’s leading scorers and are both averaging close to 20 points per game. If both Johnson and Moore are on their game, Purdue should leave the game with a win.”
