Jeff Borzello

The Cardinals have the athletes to match Marquette's guards, and they might be hitting their stride.

Louisville

Kevin Durant has a chance to make a huge statement on the road, but it won't happen. 

Oklahoma St

The young Tar Heels still have trouble on the road, and Clemson will be looking to bounce back.

Clemson

Wings galore in this one. The Trojans came up just short against UCLA, but they will get the W against the Wildcats.

USC

Jason Brubaker

Fresh off a big win over WVU, the Golden Eagles backcourt will overwhelm the Louisville guards.

Marquette

 

Ready to atone for embarrassing loss to Kansas, Cowboys are itching to shut down the Horns freshmen. Durant and his mates will fall short in first Big 12 test.

Oklahoma St

 

Roy won't let the uber-talented Heels have two down games in a row. Look for a spirited defensive effort from UNC.

UNC

 

Wildcats aren't fazed by hostile crowds, owning road wins over UW and L'ville. Fresh off a tough loss to UCLA, USC has to avoid coming out flat or it could be over early

Arizona

 

Kevin McNeill

Did the win over WVU mark a turning point for Marquette? When they actually hit shots unlike their previous 3 games?  I'll believe it when I see it.

Louisville

 

First home game for the Cowboys since a thrashing at the hands of Kansas on national TV.  Not a good
time for Mr. Durant and company to visit Stillwater.

Oklahoma St

UNC's reign as #1 was a short one, as was Clemson's notoriety as the "last unbeaten." As a esult, both teams now feel they have a lot to prove

UNC

 

The Trojans have steadily improved on defense all year- but has been less than dominant at home.  Arizona's high-octane offense will be too much.

Arizona

 

Shawn Siegel

A Rick Pitino team can't go all season without beating a decent team.. right?

Louisville

This is the game Kevin Durant goes from being great to being amazing.

Texas

The Tar Heels will reassert their ACC dominance by beating upstart Clemson.

UNC

#3 UCLA escaped against USC, but #8 Arizona wont be so lucky..

USC
