–Florida went 9-of-23 from the free-throw line in last night’s loss at Missouri. Kasey Hill was 1-for-8 at the charity stripe. That’s obviously atrocious for any player, especially a point guard that was a McDonald’s All-American. If we discount walk-on Jacob Kurtz going 5-of-7, the rest of UF’s players were an abysmal 4-for-16 from the FT line. You don’t see that shit in high school.
–If you’re a Florida alum, this might be the offseason in which the Gators are most vulnerable to an NBA team talking Billy Donovan into making the jump to the pros. Let’s hope that doesn’t happen.
–I’m on Davidson tonight at Rhode Island. The Wildcats are 6-0 ATS as underdogs this season.
–I’ve got 10 minutes to decide whether or not to pull the trigger on a Cincy-UFC ‘under.’
–I went real small on Cincy ‘under’ and played Hawks -3 first quarter in NBA. Jeff Teague upgraded to start, while Tyson Chandler, Chandler Parsons and Rajon Rondo are out for the Mavericks.
–The Hawks didn’t cover the first quarter, but they did win by double digits and cover (for the game) as nine-point home favorites.
–Davidson’s Jack Gibbs made a game-winning 3-pointer with 13 seconds remaining to lift the Wildcats to a one-point win at Rhode Island. Gibbs has scored in double figures in all three games since returning from a month-long absence due to a knee injury.
–The biggest winner Wednesday might end up being Va. Tech (it just went to overtime at home with Duke just now…) but for now, the teams of the night are Georgia, Virginia, Davidson and Baylor. The Bears got a monster win at Iowa St., which had a chance to pull even with Kansas in the Big 12 regular-season race. The Cavaliers won 70-34 at Wake Forest as eight-point road favorites. Georgia leads at Ole Miss by nine with less than a minute left, so it will cashed +195 money-line tickets. I had the Bulldogs, who were 5.5-point underdogs.
–Trailing by 11 at intermission, Ole Miss was a six-point favorite for halftime bets. That’s +5 adjusted and look here — Ole Miss just made back-to-back buckets to slice the deficit to 71-66 with 44.8 seconds left.
