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:
2:00 PM EST SATURDAY
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
6:30 PM EST SATURDAY
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
4:00 PM EST SUNDAY
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

I will post my rankings here every week or so. I will submit my poll to the UTEA and OSUBuckeyeFan is going to put together an accumulative ranking of teams based on everyone's rankings. Just go here and you can sumbit your own rankings! Thank You!
1.Pittsburgh - Has 2 losses in a completely loaded Big East, there only other loss is Tennessee. This team is for real.
2.Ohio State - They need to avoid another loss this weekend. Is this Thad Matta's year?
3.Texas - The four losses concerns me, but becides the one slip-up in Big 12 play, they have been stellar.
4.Notre Dame - Barely beat Providence. An experienced team with an underrated coach. It would be better if they could do without the close games, but at least they can win them.
5.Kansas - A well rounded team with a really good coach, do they have enough tournament experience? I say yes.
6.Brigham Young - He is this year's Stephen Curry, only BYU has a better all around team. Look out for them in the tournament.
7.Duke - They are probably better than this, but they haven't proved it to me.
8.Florida - Can they win on the road? We will find out today, against a struggling Kentucky team.
9.Louisville - I have watched them play several times, and when their playing well, they are almost impossible to beat, times like this make it far in the tournament.
10.Purdue - My hoosiers couldn't save me from doing this. They went to probably the most hetic environment of the year and held of a vengeful IU team. They beat OSU and Wisconsin. They have never proven they could do anything in the tournament, will they this year?
Teams to Watch:
San Diego State
