Stanford 78 @ Washington St. 66
1/19
STNFRD 78 @ WASHST 66
1/19
WIN
YESTERDAY 6:53 PM

The Cardinal have developed a habit of extreme home-road splits and they followed their home win over Arizona State with a disappointing outing in a blowout at Washington. Still, they improved rapidly toward the end of last season and this team is better than its record suggests. Stanford has covered on seven of its last nine trips to Pullman and should have the edge Saturday over a Cougars club that lost six straight before blowing out Cal in its last game.

LOSS
Fri 1/18

Maryland has a solid club that features one of the top frontcourts in the country and a reliable playmaker in Anthony Cowan. But the Terrapins could be in a letdown spot Friday following a tough homestand in which they eeked out wins against Indiana and Wisconsin. We're counting on a motivation edge from the Buckeyes, who have lost three straight and desperately need a win to stand any chance of getting back in the Big Ten title race. They lost a hard-fought battle with Michigan State the last time they were on their home floor.

BYU 87 @ PEPPER 76

WIN
Fri 1/18

The Cougars have been erratic and haven't performed anywhere near their talent level, as they should be the second-best team in the WCC by a fairly wide margin. Pepperdine appears to be a program on the rise, but could be subject to a letdown Thursday following a tough road trip that included an upset of San Diego. Barring a flat spot, the Cougars should take care of business and pulla way in this one.

WIN
Thu 1/17

These international games tend to favor the underdog, and the Knicks are a solid spot play Thursday. About the last thing a Washington team fighting for playoff contention wants to see is a struggling club with nothing to lose with young players who are out to make an impression. New York should also have a motivational edge because of the attention surrounding Enes Kanter, their big man who didn?t make the trip because of security concerns. Fade the public and take the points.
