LOSS
12:32 AM

Auburn had to win four games in four days in order to win the SEC Tournament. the Tigers showed some tired legs in the second half as they held on against New Mexico State. Kansas suffered through a transitional season in which constant personnel issues prevented the Jayhawks from winning wither the Big regular season or tournament titles. this is their last chance to have an print of success, and they played one of their best games in recent memory in a first-round blowout. Bill Self gets this team to the Sweet 16.

LOSS
YESTERDAY 3:35 PM

Wofford loves to push the pace, led by record-setting three-point shooter Fletcher Magee. The Terriers pout up 84 points in their first-round win against Seton Hall. Kentucky is a tempo-flexible club that doesn't mind going fast at all, and likely believes it can top Wofford at its own game. look for a blistering pace to send this one Over the total.

3/23
LOSS
YESTERDAY 3:30 PM

Maryland used its size advantage and rarely seen poise to overcome a double-digit deficit and defeat upstart Belmont. The Terrapins won't have that same go-to option against an LSU club that has size and speed of its own. The Tigers had a mostly comfortable win against Yale in the first round and are playing well despite the uncertainty surrounding Will Wade. The number looks just a tad light as the Tigers should be heading to the Sweet 16.

LOSS
Fri 3/22

This line has dropped to the point where all the value is on the Wildcats. Their best player, Dean Wade, is out again for the second straight time in the NCAA Tournament. but they reached the Elite Eight last year without him. Guards Barry Brown and Kamau Stokes are reliable and battle-tested in the postseason. The 30-win Anteaters are among this year's sweetheart underdogs and they have won 16 straight. But they haven't fared well outside their weight class, with blowout losses to Utah State and Butler. Kansas State also beat Irvine handily last year.

3/21
LOSS
Thu 3/21

The Wolf Pack stumbled down the stretch against inferior competition in the Mountain West and saw its quest for a tournament title come to an end with a lopsided defeat to San Diego State for the second straight season. Florida scrapped its way to a bid with a late-season surge that included a pair of wins over LSU and appears to be peaking at the right time. Even so, Nevada still has the better personnel and an experience edge from reaching the Sweet 16 last year. It has been favored in every game this season and this is the second-shortest spread it has seen.
