    There is one big college game tonight: VCU @ UMass

    Big Atlantic 10 matchup here. Two consensus tourney teams going at it. Both teams play an uptempo style.

    UMass is a mere 1 point fave at home.

    VCU gets it done here in a big spot. They really need this game And I think Shaka smart will have his players ready to rock tonight in Umass

    UMass peaked very early this year. Right now they are a faint shadow of the team they were in Nov/Dec.

    VCU is far and away the better team. Prob would beat UMASS 8/9 out of 10 times. Saying that, UMass is home on a Friday night, ESPN primetime game. No play for me

    This looks like the same scenario as Duke-UNC last night...

    That the home team comes back and wins or the 2 point favorite loses?

    That the home team comes back and wins. Sorry - it's not identical as Duke was favored by 1.5, whereas tonight, VCU is +1.5...well, was.

    Is faint shadow a bit of a stretch? I've barely watched them.

    UMASS out to prove they are NCAA team this year a good matchup but I like momentum on UMASS side they have firepower if VCU wants to run up a high-tempo game. Unfortunately I cant agree with the turnover argument although VCU press can be stifling PG Chaz Williams is exactly the type of player to break the traps and make VCU ineffective. Leaning the Minutemen -2 here theyve notched quality wins in BYU, NM Ive had an eye on this team and feel they are an NCAA team a win here solidifies their resume. Fade VCU in this spot they have a good coach but are hit-or-miss shooting team and MASS will invite high-tempo pace on home floor. UMASS -2 THE PLAY. GL

    The board is going to get buried on VCU tonight.

    anytime also happen to be UMASS alum this is clearly the best team since Camby, Roe n Co. Theyll be underlooked tonite because the avg. Joe has no insight on UMASS on the big stage.

    they've been a very nice team for a few years now. I rode them in NIT a few years back.

    Last year UMass lost twice to VCU. Normally I'd back the better team in VCU here, but this will be revenge at home on national TV. Pass.

    This year's VCU squad does not seem as strong as last year's. But did they lose much?
