Tonight we have back to back marquee matchups in Big Monday for the first time in a couple weeks. The Big East game is a matchup of top 15 teams as Syracuse, 3rd in KenPom, welcome in 14th ranked Georgetown. Wes Johnson is the obvious playmaker in the first game, but Andy Rautins is quietly having a heck of a season for the Orange(men). Georgetown has been very poor turnover-wise on both sides of the ball this year, which spells doom against the Syracuse zone. I’m taking the Cuse at home.
In the nightcap, Kansas takes on archrival Missouri. In a post I wrote for the Kansas blog Rock Chalk Talk, I mapped out how Missouri, even though they haven’t gotten any national pub, is basically a carbon copy of the team they had last year. It will be a very tough game for the Jayhawks, and an exciting one for impartial fans as Missouri plays a very uptempo, exciting style of basketball.
In tennis action, Andy Roddick takes on Marin Cilic which should be good times, and Andy Murray takes on Rafa Nadal, which I am undoubtedly staying up until 3 AM for.
Stop by and comment it up people. Also, topic of discussion for tonight: Wednesday is apparently a huge night for college bball. I had no idea (shit I sounded like TBL there. fuck fuck fuck). Would you guys want an open thread for Wednesday as well?
Mmmm. Legs. OK I’m done I promise.
