Friday's NCAA picks

Duke still alive

The Blue Devils got lucky Thursday. Belmont just didn't execute at all in the final minute. Not only didn't they stop Duke from getting to the basket on its final possession but Belmont didn't get a good shot off.
I was surprised its coach didn't use a timeout after Duke took the lead.

Friday's best bets
Went 1-1 on my picks on Thursday.

Today I like Davidson to defeat Gonzaga. Now Davidson's the lower seed and they're the favorite. That tells you a lot about this game. Davidson also features Stephen Curry, the son of Dell Curry who can score in bunches.
Davidson is one of my sleepers in this tournament.

I also like Villanova to put a scare into Clemson and perhaps even pull off the upset. The Big East is off to a great start to the tournament.

There were very few upsets on Thursday and if it wasn't for Belmont it would have been a very forgettable day. Pitt looked great and Washington State, whom I've been touting for a long time was also dominant. The Notre Dame-Washington State game will be a classic.
