    Miami +4.5 over 'Nova

    Why?

    Miami has better guards, and guards win tournaments.
    Tougher schedule, Miami had the 9th toughest SoS all season.
    Tougher conference, coming out of ACC.

    Pretty much everything points to Hurricanes.
    (and this coming from a guy who pretty much can't stand their program in all sports)

    'Canes +4.5
    Might drop a 1.5* on the money line too.

    Best of luck.

    I don't think I'd go as far as saying Miami has better guards than Nova. Nova has the better overall team. Nova covers.

    Miami is only down six, which should be of some concern for 'Nova, because the lead should be 14, and you would think Nova can't duplicate that pace in the 2H, I mean they could but it's difficult.

    Yep, good call.
    I was wrong, Philly boys out scrapped them and out played them.
    This win won, lost won thing is getting stale, oh well, that's why I work 9 to 5.

    Baseball next week, nice hit.

    Hey asshole, try showing up at the start of the tread next time, that's why you have zero credibility.

    Villanova has been a buzzsaw so far... that UNC Asheville team they blew out in the 1st round was a good team. I think people overlooked it because they were a 15 seed.

    I do act like it, I have been making picks here for years, I always admit when I'm wrong, I'm always around win or lose, I have two things 90 percent of the posters don't have, integrity and credibility.

    I've never made a claim that was untrue, I never post padded, I've never stiffed, I could go on and on, but I don't really need to answer to anybody.

    Oh, that "SBR's Premier Poster Thing" it's an inside joke that's been explained here by me dozens of times.
    If you think I believe that, you don't know me, which is no big thing, because I really don't want to or need to know you.
    Now, troll the boards some more.

    You didn't hurt my feelings, you made a statement, and I had to defend myself.
    For the record, as a Fairfield Connecticut guy, a UConn homer, I've seen plenty of Big East games, like 1000 of them in my lifetime, and I still keep my eye on them, I over estimated Miami, admitted I did, what's your problem?

    Nova is looking real good. I'm starting to think they beat KU (assuming they beat Maryland tonight) on Saturday.
