YUCK. That summarises my picks last week. I have nothing more to add, let’s move on.
Last Week: 2-6
East All Stars @ West All Stars
LET’S be honest no one really cares who wins this game. We just want to see dunks, deep threes and highlights galore. Both teams are clearly full of NBA star talent, but the West team edges out the East in the ‘big name’ category. Winners of five of the last six games, the West team should make it six from seven on Sunday.
Verdict: West W

#23 Maryland Terrapins @ #11 Wisconsin Badgers
AFTER dropping back to back conference games the Badgers need a win here. Things are virtually all tied up between them, Maryland and Purdue atop the Big Ten conference, putting even more importance on the outcome of this game. Wisconsin may be without starting senior guard Bronson Koenig, but even if they are their defense should help them prevail.
Verdict: Badgers W
DePaul Blue Demons @ #24 Butler Bulldogs
THE first meeting between these two team was interesting to say the least. DePaul led 25-5 before Butler rallied for a 70-69 OT victory. In a nutshell though, DePaul are chasing just their second win in conference play and they won’t get it.
Verdict: Butler W
Georgetown Hoyas @ #20 Creighton Bluejays
CREIGHTON has probably secured a tournament spot already with their 21-5 record, but they will be looking to atone for their mistakes from the last time they faced Georgetown. The Hoyas delivered a 71-51 drubbing to the Bluejays when they met on Jan 25. Things will be different this time around though.
Verdict: Bluejays W
