Opening Line Connecticut (-7)

Let me start with apologizing in the advance for the probable starting lineups posted above. These two teams are both coming off of roster shakeups, Herb Pope is a game-time call (at the time of this writing) and oh yeah, George Blaney is back on the sidelines filling in for Jim Calhoun. It's anyone's guess who could receive the call for either team this afternoon. I'm assuming Willard will ride Fredide's hot hand, allowing him to start at the 2, while both he and Theodore will receive some early looks playing off the ball. Remember, Connecticut is Wilson's home state and the extra adrenaline gained allowing him the start could be the early spark the Pirates desperately need today.

As I said following Conecticut's loss to Georgetown, I honestly feel the loser of today's game is destined for the NIT. As for the winner? Well, they may eventually wind up there as well, but they'll at least be able to stop their respective skid and hold out hope (no matter how slim), that they can turn this thing around. One thing's for sure, somebody HAS TO win today. As always, Let's Go Hall!
