PAC TEN (and wcc) THURSDAY

Posted by davefowkes on 02/12/2009

No Stanford or Cal tonight but still some good matchups:

UCLA at ASU: Game of the night. UCLA is hot, but ASU won the first matchup at Pauly Pavilion. On top of that, ASU has not exactly played all that well since beating UCLA. Should be a tough defensive struggle but I’ll go with the hot team over the road team:  UCLA 68-61

USC AT ARIZONA: Don’t have a clue about this game. I can not figure out USC for the life of me. Arizona is playing better but they weren’t exactly dominating during their Oregon swing. When in doubt go with the home team:  Arizona 65-62

OREGON AT WSU: Bad team on the road vs a good defense. The only question here is can Oregon cover the double digit spread: WSU 66-54

OSU AT WASHINGTON: The Beavers are much improved this year but on the road there is just no way they will be able to keep up with the Huskies: WASHINGTON 69-51.

How about some bonus coverage of the WCC. Some fun games tonight for those following the league closely:

GONZAGA AT ST MARY’S. The Gaels are only 4.5 dogs at home. That would make sense if Patrick Mills was still playing. But with arguably the best player in the league on the bench with an injured wrist, I just don’t see how St. Mary’s can keep this close: GONZAGA 78-65.

PORTLAND AT USF: If it weren’t for Loyola, USF would be the worst team in the WCC. Portland is highly underrated with former Stanford assistant Eric Revano at the helm. Pilots should have no problmes visoting the city by the bay: PORTLAND 70–53.

SANTA CLARA AT PEPPERDINE: Broncos have really come on of late and Pepperdine has no one to stop John Bryant. It is a road game so maybe closer than it should be, but look for another Bronco victory.  SC 72-62

SAN DIEGO AT LOYOLA: Loyola is horrible. SD  70-50
