OCTAGON OF DOOM IN THE SPOTLIGHT AGAIN
January 29, 2010

SCS.comThere’s no Opening Thoughts this weekend. Sorry. Life got in the way. Mull that over this weekend while you watch the following:

WEEKLY PREVIEW

GAME OF THE WEEK

Kansas at Kansas State
Saturday 6 p.m.

For as much as I’ve talked up Bramlage Coliseum — aka the Octagon of Doom — Kansas State lost at home to Oklahoma State last weekend. Anyone who watched KSU handle number-one Texas in that nasty environment in Manhattan must have been shocked to see the loss to OSU. I know I was. Something tells me the Wildcats will be ready to play on Saturday, however, especially since the College Gameday crew is coming to town.

Prediction: Kansas State 70, Kansas 68

GAMES TO KEEP AN EYE ON

Butler at Green Bay
Friday 8 p.m.

Butler hasn’t lost yet in Horizon League play. If the Bulldogs’ undefeated record were destroyed, it’d be tonight. This is their toughest game of the conference season.

Prediction: Butler 76, Green Bay 66

Duke at Georgetown
Saturday 12 p.m.

Duke is probably a little deeper than Georgetown, but the Hoyas’ starting five can play with anyone in the nation. At home, I’ll take G’Town in a squeaker.

Prediction: Georgetown 72, Duke 71

Oklahoma State at Missouri
Saturday 1 p.m.

If you like fast-paced basketball, watch this one on Saturday. Last year’s score in Stillwater was 97-95. Can you keep up?

Prediction: Missouri 88, Oklahoma State 80

Oklahoma State at Missouri
Saturday 1 p.m.

If you like fast-paced basketball, watch this one on Saturday. Last year’s score in Stillwater was 97-95. Can you keep up?

Prediction: Missouri 88, Oklahoma State 80

Baylor at Texas
Saturday 3 p.m.

Texas Tech gave Texas all it wanted and more on Wednesday in Austin. Baylor’s a better team than Tech with the same kind of offensive capabilities.

Prediction: Texas 78, Baylor 72

Vanderbilt at Kentucky
Saturday 3 p.m.

The first-place team in the SEC is starting to hit its stride. I’m talking about undefeated Vanderbilt, of course, who just won at Tennessee.

Prediction: Kentucky 75, Vanderbilt 68

Harvard at Cornell
Saturday 6

ESPN should pick this game up, because it’s the Game of the Year in the Ivy League. It’s a game featuring two of the league’s top players, Ryan Wittman of Cornell and Jeremy Lin of Harvard. But more importantly, it’s a game that may determine the regular season champion, and thus the NCAA Tournament invitee—because remember, there’s no conference tournament.

Prediction: Cornell 65, Harvard 63

Last week’s prediction record: 9-4
Overall prediction record: 94-54
