Beyond the Arc -- Wednesday
By Josh Jacobs

After sweating out a crowded card on Tuesday, the action continues in the NBA when another scheduled eight games roll into the evening hours on Wednesday. While none of these contests will be nationally televised (unless you subscribe to the NBA Ticket), that doesn’t mean we can’t tag along throughout the Association.

**Golden State at Indiana**

Golden State (22-16 straight up, 18-20 against the spread) may have started the season on the wrong foot, losing six straight, but have since righted the ship. Beginning a four-game road trip on Tuesday, the Warriors have seen the total go ‘under’ 12 times in the last 18 games. Coming off two days of rest, Indiana (17-22 SU, 19-20 ATS) is 41-16-3 ATS in their last 60 games. The Pacers do have the upper hand when paired up with Golden State. In their last 10 head-to-head meeting, Indiana is 6-4 SU and 7-3 ATS, but the Warriors have worked for the ‘W’ in their last two clashes (combining to outscore the Pacers 219-199).

**Chicago at Miami**

In a mighty struggle to rack up some sort of respect, the Heat are far from the mold they where during the Championship run in 2006. Entering Wednesday night with a 4-11 SU and ATS record, Miami is being outscored in its own home building 99.8 PPG to 96 PPG. A true ‘fade team’ in all its meaning, the Heat have gone 2-14 ATS (6-20 ATS in their last 26 games at home) in their last 16 appearances on the hardwood. Far from being the big bully on the block, Chicago is 4-5 ATS in its last nine on the road versus teams playing under .500 ball. The Bulls are 4-0 SU and 3-0-1 ATS in their last four against Miami (games have gone ‘over’ three out of the last four). Miami's Shaquille O'Neal is expected to return from a hip injury just in time for tip-off at 7:00 p.m. EST.

**Sacramento at Toronto**


Out 10½-games from first place in the Atlantic Division, Toronto is hoping to construct a concrete foundation in January. Hooping it up from the field for a 45.4% and snatching up 41.6 RPG at home, the Raptors key to success against Sacramento will be protecting the rim. In the last 10, the home team has gone an astounding 9-1 SU and 8-2 ATS in head-to-head meetings. For the Kings, inconsistency has been the sink hole. In its last 18, Sacramento is 8-10 SU and 11-9 ATS.

**Orlando at Charlotte**

Looking to build on a 9-1 ATS bill in its last 10 games versus teams in the Southeast Division, Orlando will meet up with a Charlotte team whose covered five straight games in a row (not to mention the ‘over’ run of 7-2 in the last nine). The Bobcats biggest win of the season thus far came in a 95-83 stomping against Boston on Jan. 9. Throwing down the ball for 107 PPG in the same five games, Charlotte has been misfiring on defense by allowing opponent to rack up 102.8 PPG (in the last six). The Magic have been far from mystical, dropping five out of their last six.

**Portland at Boston**

Taking its first back-to-back loss on the chin this week, the Celtics may be showing signs that injuries to Ray Allen and now Rajon Rondo are taking a toll. Scoring just 84.4 PPG (compared to its 98.2 PPG on the season) in the last five, Boston has definitely slowed the pace on the court down to a crawl. On the other hand, the Blazers are burning the net for 104.2 PPG during a 5-1 SU and 5-1 ATS run in the last six. And shooting 48.5% from three-point range in the last five is testament to sniper type skills from long range.

**New York at New Jersey**

A win against the Pistons on Sunday pushed the Knicks to a 4-15 SU and 7-12 ATS record in their last 19. If you’ve been playing any part of these New York games the ‘over’ has been golden at 9-2 in the last 11 and 14-7 in 21 games of play. Posting up against the Nets at 7:30 p.m. EST, New Jersey has been burning backers with a 3-7 ATS receipt in 10 contests at home versus teams playing under the .500 mark. In only 27% of its games this year, the Nets and their opponents have combined to score 200 points.

**Seattle at New Orleans**

Trying to limp into the win column with the magic number of 10, Seattle’s 4-15 SU and 7-12 ATS record in 19 games on the road ranks this crew at the bottom of the list in the NBA. Five of the Sonics nine wins have come when opponents have been held to 95 points or less. Total players, watch for a low scoring game as Seattle is 7-1 on the ‘under’ (six straight under plays from Dec. 31 until Jan. 11. A 10-2 SU run in New Orleans’ last 12 outings has been a great lift for the club, while a 20-10 ATS storming of tickets against non-division teams has been very profitable.

**Atlanta at Milwaukee**

The Hawks have allowed an increase of 5.5 PPG in the last five compared to their seasonal average (98.6 versus 93.1 PPG). Going 5-12 ATS in its last 17 road games versus a team with a winning home record, Atlanta exemplified this streak when it dropped visiting loses against Dallas (97-84) and Cleveland (98-94) recently. The Bucks are another club plagued by inconsistency. Outscoring its opponents 92.7 PPG to 88 PPG in a recent three-game victory streak, Milwaukee has slipped into a 0-3 SU and 2-1 ATS in the last three contests. During this time of uncertainty, the Bucks have been burnt for 110 PPG.

Re: Betting News and Notes - Jan 16

Shaq likely to start Wednesday for Heat
January 15, 2008

MIAMI (AP) -Heat center Shaquille O'Neal is likely to play Wednesday against the Bulls after practicing Tuesday as he attempts to come back from a hip injury that has sidelined him for eight games.

Coach Pat Riley said he will ``surely, probably'' have O'Neal in the starting lineup. The Heat have lost 10 consecutive games and their 8-28 record is the worst in the Eastern Conference.

O'Neal bruised his left hip Dec. 22 when he dived for a loose ball and slid into the scorer's table during a win over Utah. He aggravated the injury Dec. 26 against Philadelphia and has not played since.

``I think his explosion has looked good the last two days,'' guard Dwyane Wade said. ``The main thing is to stay healthy as he continues to go through practices and games.''

A sore left knee has also contributed to the least productive season in O'Neal's 16-year career. He is averaging 13.9 points and 7.9 rebounds.

Nene's site says he had tumor removed
January 15, 2008

DENVER (AP) -Doctors removed a tumor from Nuggets forward Nene, according to the player's Web site Tuesday.

The statement said the surgery was done Monday at a Denver hospital, but it did not indicate whether the tumor was cancerous or where it was located.

Nene's medical team will discuss what to do next after getting test results expected by the end of the week, the statement said.

Nene, who is from Brazil, took an indefinite leave of absence Friday. The team hasn't released any information about his condition.

Nene is averaging 6.4 points and 6.4 rebounds. He missed 22 games earlier this season after undergoing left thumb surgery.

Oklahoma's Griffin could miss 4 weeks with knee injury
January 15, 2008

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) -Oklahoma freshman standout Blake Griffin could miss as much as four weeks after spraining a ligament in his left knee.

Sooners coach Jeff Capel said Griffin had an MRI on Tuesday and will not need surgery on the sprained medial collateral ligament he injured in the Sooners' 85-55 loss at No. 3 Kansas a night earlier.

The 6-foot-10 forward leads Oklahoma in scoring and rebounding, averaging 15.4 points and 9.1 rebounds. The Sooners host Texas Tech in their next game Saturday.

Road Traps

There are 40 college basketball games on Wednesday’s card, including several games that are road traps. Let’s take a look at four of those before exploring some Bonus Nuggets.

**Duke at Florida State**

--Las Vegas Sports Consultants opened Duke (13-1 straight up, 7-6 against the spread) as a six-point favorite with a total of 148. The Blue Devils won their ACC opener Sunday night, blasting Virginia by an 87-65 count as a 15-point home favorite. DeMarcus Nelson scored a game-high 20 points and Gerald Henderson added 18.

--Gamblers backing Florida State (12-5 SU, 6-8 ATS) were left with a numbing defeat Saturday at Clemson. The Seminoles, who closed as 9 ½-point underdogs, lost 97-85 in double overtime. Uche Echefu scored 24 points and grabbed 12 rebounds in the losing effort.

--FSU has given Duke fits in recent years. In fact, the Seminoles are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games against the Blue Devils. They have won outright in three of the last five meetings in Tallahassee.

--For our purposes, both of these teams have been horrible lately. Leonard Hamilton’s team has failed to cover the number in six of its last seven games, while the Blue Devils are 1-3 ATS in their last four outings.

--The ‘under’ is 8-1 in the last nine head-to-head meetings between these ACC adversaries.

--The ‘under’ has cashed in four consecutive Duke games.

--ESPN will provide television coverage at 7:00 p.m. Eastern.
   
**Memphis at Rice**

--Memphis (15-0 SU, 8-6 ATS) was burning its backers early in the season, limping to a 2-6 spread record out of the gate. However, the Tigers have now cashed tickets in six straight games. They have won their last eight games by double-digit margins.

--LVSC opened John Calipari’s team as a 25-point ‘chalk,’ but most sports books were using 26 Tuesday night.

--Rice (3-12 SU, 5-8 ATS) has a decimated roster due to suspensions and injuries. Freshman guard Jasen Williams, who was averaging 10.3 points per game in the team’s first seven games, is suspended indefinitely with academic issues. Rodney Foster (9.6 PPG) is listed as “questionable” with a sprained ankle.

--Memphis is 5-6 ATS as a double-digit ‘chalk.’ Meanwhile, Rice is 3-3 ATS as a double-digit underdog.

--The ‘under’ has been a serious money maker for the Owls, cashing at an 11-2 clip.

**North Carolina at Georgia Tech**

--LVSC opened North Carolina (17-0 SU, 12-2 ATS) as a 12-point favorite with a total of 157.

--UNC has won 14 of its 17 games by double digits. The Tar Heels are 9-1 ATS in 10 games as double-digit favorites. They are looking to start 18-0 for the first time since 1985-86.

--Georgia Tech (7-8 SU, 5-8 ATS) has lost three of its last four games, including its first two ACC affairs. The Yellow Jackets lost 66-64 to FSU as four-point home underdogs back on Dec. 30. They are off a 78-68 loss at Miami as six-point ‘dogs.

--Paul Hewitt’s squad has a 2-0 spread record in a pair of previous games as a double-digit underdog. The Yellow Jackets took the money as 10-point underdogs at Indiana and vs. Kansas.

--Roy Williams’ team avenged a loss to N.C. St. at last year’s ACC Tournament by crushing the Wolfpack 93-62 Saturday as an 18 ½-point home ‘chalk.’ Deon Thompson and Ty Lawson scored 16 points apiece to pace five UNC players in double figures.

--The ‘over’ is on a 7-2 run in UNC games. The ‘over’ is 9-5 overall for the Tar Heels. As for the Yellow Jackets, they have watched the ‘over’ go 8-5 overall, but the ‘under’ is 4-1 in their home games.

--Tip-off is scheduled for 9:00 p.m. Eastern on ESPN.

**Texas A&M at Texas Tech**

--LVSC sent out Texas A&M (15-1 SU, 5-5 ATS) as a seven-point favorite. However, most books had the Aggies at 4 ½ or four Tuesday night.

--Texas A&M has been absolutely dominant in its last eight games, winning each time out by 17 points or more. The Aggies are off an 86-69 win over Colorado as 19 ½-point home favorites. Dominique Kirk led six double-figure scorers with 15 points.

--Texas Tech (9-6 SU, 6-4 ATS) owns a 7-1 SU record and a 4-1 ATS mark at home. The Red Raiders cashed tickets in their lone previous spot as home underdogs, dropping a 62-61 decision to Stanford as six-point ‘dogs.

--Bobby Knight is going for his 900th career win for the second time. Texas Tech lost 74-55 Saturday at Oklahoma St. as a five-point underdog.

--The ‘under’ is on a 5-1 run for Texas Tech.

--ESPN2 will have the telecast at 9:30 p.m. Eastern.

COLLEGE BASKETBALL

(7) Duke (13-1, 7-6 ATS) at Florida State (12-5, 6-8 ATS)


The Blue Devils, stunned at home in this matchup last season, seek revenge when they head to Tallahassee to take on Florida State in an ACC contest.

Duke opened conference play with an 87-65 home rout of Virginia on Sunday as a 15-point chalk, halting an 0-3 ATS slide, which included the Blue Devils’ lone SU loss of the season – a 65-64 overtime setback to Pittsburgh at Madison Square Garden. Duke is averaging 85.5 points per game (eighth in the nation) and hitting 40.2 percent from 3-point range (21st), while allowing 63.5 ppg and just 30.5 percent from beyond the arc (31st).

Florida State took Clemson to overtime Saturday in its second ACC contest of the season, but the Seminoles ended up losing 97-85 as a 9½-point road underdog. FSU is now 1-6 ATS in its last seven lined games (4-3 SU). The Seminoles average 75.9 ppg and allow 66.4, and they are shooting a healthy 79.7 percent from the free-throw line (2nd in the nation).

The Seminoles are on a 3-0 ATS run in this series (2-1 SU), all as an underdog, including a 68-67 win last February at Duke catching 8½ points in the season’s only meeting. Moreover, Florida State is 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings in Tallahassee and 7-1 ATS in the last eight meetings overall, all as an underdog. Finally, the road team has cashed in five of the last seven matchups.

The Blue Devils are 5-3 ATS as double-digit favorites this season, but they are just 1-5 ATS in road/neutral site games. In their only true road game this season, the Blue Devils beat Temple 74-64 but failed to cover the 13-point spread. Duke is also 1-9 ATS in its last 10 Wednesday starts, 2-5 ATS after a spread-cover and 1-7 ATS against teams with a winning record.

The Seminoles are 3-0 SU (2-1 ATS) coming off a loss, including a 66-64 win at Georgia Tech as a four-point ‘dog in their ACC opener. They are also 10-3 ATS at home against teams with a winning road record, but just 3-3 ATS overall at home this year.

The under is on runs of 4-0 for Duke overall, 7-1 for the Blue Devils against teams with a winning record, 4-1 for Florida State at home, 10-2 for Florida State in ACC play, 8-1 for the Seminoles against winning teams and 17-4-1 for the Seminoles after a SU loss. Finally, the under is 8-1 in the last nine series meetings and 5-0 in the last five head-to-head clashes in Tallahassee.

ATS ADVANTAGE: FLORIDA STATE and UNDER


(1) North Carolina (17-0, 12-2 ATS) at Georgia Tech (7-8, 5-8 ATS)

The unbeaten and top-ranked Tar Heels travel to Atlanta for an ACC matchup against a struggling Georgia Tech squad.

North Carolina hammered rival North Carolina State 93-62 on Saturday, easily covering the 18½-point spread at home. The Tar Heels are on an insane 12-1 ATS run, going a robust 9-0 ATS this season as a chalk of more than 16 points.

Georgia Tech lost at Miami 78-68 on Saturday as a six-point underdog, falling to 0-3 ATS in its last three lined contests. The Yellow Jackets’ most recent wins haven’t been all that impressive, coming against Centenary and Presbyterian in non-lined games, and against Tennessee Tech (83-63 as a 16½-points favorite). However, they did give No. 2 Kansas a strong test in Atlanta last month, losing 71-66 but getting the cash as a 10-point home pup.

UNC is averaging 92.2 ppg (2nd in the country), shooting 49.1 percent from the field (18th). The Tar Heels, who give up 70.1 ppg, are outrebounding opponents by a nation-leading 11.9 per game (41.9-30.0).

Georgia Tech is averaging 76.3 ppg, but allowing 73.1 ppg and netting just 31.7 rebounds per contest.

These two teams have split the last 10 games in this series, but the Yellow Jackets hold a 7-3 ATS edge during this stretch, including an 84-77 home win last March as a 5½-point underdog. The Tar Heels are just 3-10 ATS in the last 13 meetings, including 0-5 ATS at Tech. Also, the home team is on a 6-2 ATS run.

The Tar Heels are on positive ATS runs of 43-20-1 overall, 4-1 on the road, 37-14-1 after a spread-cover and 6-2 on Wednesday.

The Yellow Jackets are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 against teams with a winning record and 18-8 ATS in their last 26 home starts, dating to last season.

For Carolina, the over is on runs of 7-2 overall, 6-2 against the ACC, 4-0 on the highway and 7-2 following a SU win. In addition, the over has cashed in six straight series meetings in Atlanta.

Conversely, for Georgia Tech, the under is on streaks of 4-0 at home, 4-1 on Wednesday and 11-4 in ACC play.

ATS ADVANTAGE: NORTH CAROLINA and OVER


(10) Texas A&M (15-1, 5-5 ATS) at Texas Tech (9-6, 6-4 ATS)

The Aggies make an in-state trip to Lubbock for their first road game in six weeks, taking on Bob Knight and Texas Tech in a Big 12 contest.

Texas A&M dumped Colorado 86-69 on Saturday in its Big 12 opener, posting its eighth straight win but falling just short as a 19½-point chalk. The Aggies have played just four lined contests during their winning streak, going 2-2 ATS. Their last road contest was Dec. 2, a 78-67 loss to Arizona as a three-point pup.

Texas A&M is averaging 78.2 ppg and is third in the country with a 51.9 shooting percentage from the field. The Aggies are allowing just 57.6 ppg (16th) and have held opponents to 36.6 percent shooting (5th). They are also outrebounding teams by 11.3 per game (37.9-26.5), second-best in the nation.

Texas Tech got drilled at Oklahoma State 74-55 on Saturday as a five-point ‘dog in its conference opener, halting a 3-0 SU run and a 3-1 ATS surge in lined games. The Red Raiders average 70.1 ppg, shooting a solid 48.3 percent, and they’re allowing 62.5 ppg. But Texas Tech averages just 28.1 rebounds per contest.

The Red Raiders swept the season series from the Aggies last season, winning 70-68 as a 3½-point home underdog in January and 77-75 as a 13-point road pup in February. Despite those setbacks, A&M holds a 10-4-1 ATS advantage in the last 15 contests.

Also in this series, the home team is 5-2-1 ATS in the last eight, and the underdog is 7-3-1 ATS over the last 11.

The Aggies are 17-6 ATS in their last 23 on the highway, dating to last season. They are on further positive ATS runs of 7-2 on Wednesday and 20-7 on the road against teams with a winning home mark. On a negative note, A&M is 1-4 ATS in its last five against the Big 12.

The Red Raiders are riding ATS streaks of 4-0 at home, 6-1 on Wednesdays, 7-1 against winning teams and 5-2 following a SU loss. Like the Aggies, though, Tech has struggled in the Big 12, with a 1-5-1 ATS mark in its last seven conference starts.

The over is 4-1 in the last five meetings in this series, 4-1 in the Aggies’ last five Big 12 matchups and 5-2 in A&M’s last seven on the road. However, for Texas Tech, the under is on runs of 4-0 at home, 5-1 overall, 10-4 following a non-cover and 5-2 in the Big 12.   

ATS ADVANTAGE: TEXAS TECH


NBA

Golden State (23-16, 18-21 ATS) at Indiana (17-22, 19-20 ATS)


The Warriors and Pacers hook up for the second time in four days, this time at Conseco Fieldhouse, where Indiana looks to even its home record.

The Pacers capped a five-game, eight-day road trip at Golden State on Sunday, falling 106-101 but cashing as a 9½-point underdog. Indiana went 1-4 on the trip and is just 2-9 SU in its last 11, but the team has followed up a 1-7 ATS slump with three straight spread-covers, all as an underdog.

Golden State kicked off a four-game, five-day road swing with last night’s 105-98 victory at Minnesota, just missing as a 7½-point favorite. The Warriors have won three in a row and 10 of their last 15, but they’re just 2-5 ATS in their last seven.

Including Sunday’s victory, Golden State has taken the last two against the Pacers after Indiana won the previous four. The Pacers are 7-2 ATS in the last nine meetings overall and 5-1 in the last six in Indiana. However, the road team and underdog are 4-1 ATS in the last five battles.

Prior to Indiana’s spread-cover on Sunday, the straight-up winner had cashed in nine straight games in this series.

Golden State is in stuck in ATS ruts of 4-9 as a road underdog, 1-4 against the Eastern Conference and 8-17 when playing on back-to-back nights (4-5 ATS in back-to-backs this year).

Indiana is on a 5-1 ATS tear against Pacific Division foes. The Pacers are also on a 41-16-3 ATS streak when playing on two days’ rest. However, they’re just 8-9 SU and ATS on their home floor this year.

For the Warriors, the under is on runs of 4-0 overall, 13-5-1 on the highway and 4-0 against Central Division foes. For Indiana, the under is on streaks of 5-1 at home and 7-2 on Wednesday. However, nine of the last 12 head-to-head battles have soared over the posted price, including five of the last six at Conseco Fieldhouse.

ATS ADVANTAGE: NONE


Portland (23-14, 24-13 ATS) at Boston (30-6, 22-13-1 ATS)

The Blazers’ grueling seven-game road trip continues at Banknorth Garden in Beantown, as they take on the suddenly slumping Celtics.

Portland’s trip started with a heartbreaking 116-109 double-overtime loss at Toronto on Sunday, but the young Blazers bounced back in a big way 24 hours later, routing New Jersey 99-73 as a five-point road underdog. Portland has been playing the best basketball in the NBA over the past six weeks, going 18-2 SU and 17-3 ATS in their last 20.

The Celtics have dropped back-to-back games for the first time all season, both to the Wizards. On Saturday in Washington, Boston fell 85-78 as a 6½-point chalk, then came home on Monday and lost 88-83 to the Wizards as an 11½-point favorite. If not for a 23-9 fourth-quarter effort against New Jersey on Saturday, the Celtics would be riding a four-game losing skid.

Boston is just 2-5 ATS in its last seven games (1-5 ATS as a favorite), and its offense has gone stone-cold lately, averaging just 84.4 points in the last five contests. Conversely, Portland is putting up 107 ppg over its last five.

These teams last met on New Year’s Day 2007 in Portland, and the Celtics rolled 89-81 as a seven-point underdog. Boston has won the last four meetings and is 5-0 ATS in the last five.

During the Blazers’ 18-2 streak, they’re 6-2 SU and ATS on the road, with the straight-up winner covering the spread in all eight contests. Portland is also 9-2 ATS in its last 11 as an underdog.

The Celtics are 16-3 at home. However, they’ve lost their last two at home to Charlotte and Washington as a double-digit favorite, and they’re 0-4 ATS in their last four at the Banknorth Garden.

Boston is 11-5 ATS when playing on one day of rest this year, while the Blazers are 7-1 ATS in their last eight on one day of rest.

The Celtics are 8-1 ATS when favored by 7 to 9½ points, but Portland is 8-4 ATS as an underdog of six or more.

The under is 11-6 in Portland’s last 17 games overall, 40-19-1 in its last 60 contests on Wednesday, 5-0 in Boston’s last five overall and 11-5-1 in Boston’s last 17 at home. However, the over is 24-4 in the Celtics’ last 28 against Northwest Division opponents, 3-1 in the last four series meetings overall and 4-1 in the last five clashes in Boston.

ATS ADVANTAGE: PORTLAND

Claxton injures knee, out for rest of season

The Penn State men's basketball team suffered a devastating loss last night, as its leading scorer Geary Claxton sustained a season-ending ACL injury, effectively ending his Penn State career.

With 13:21 left in the first half, Claxton injured his left knee going up for a rebound.

"It's devastating for Geary," Penn State coach Ed DeChellis said. "I just went in there at halftime and told him I loved him and hugged him. I just feel horrible for him. I just can't put into words how strong I feel about him as a kid."

According to team doctor Wayne Sebastianelli, the full extent of injury is still being evaluated. Claxton is scheduled for an MRI tomorrow morning.

"The full extent isn't fully determined yet," Sebastianelli said. "Clearly he has an injury to the ACL."

Sebastianelli said it typically takes at least six months for players to return to training after an injury similar to Claxton's.

It was the first time Claxton had been held scoreless in his Penn State career, and his seven minutes played was also the fewest of his career.

Claxton, who also leads the team in rebounds, had posted four consecutive double-doubles before last night's injury

D.J. Jackson, Schyler King and Jeff Brooks all saw increased playing time, filling in for Claxton, but none were able to come close to matching Claxton's averages of 18.7 points and 8.9 rebounds per game. The trio combined for only 14 points and seven rebounds.

King had played in only ten games prior to last night, and Brooks had been averaging only seven minutes per game in Big Ten play.

Jackson provided the most relief, scoring the Lions' first seven points of the second half. However, Jackson only posted two rebounds.

DeChellis said that Jackson's and Brooks' roles will increase dramatically.

"We're going to have to try and play a little differently," DeChellis said. "We've got to be able to step up and accept it."

Wisconsin coach Bo Ryan said that Jackson's play forced his team to play the same defensive style as it would have against Claxton.

"When Jackson was hitting those jumpers, that looked like Claxton to us," Ryan said. "Claxton's a very good player, multidimensional, so we just stuck to what we normally do defensively."

Claxton's absence was especially felt in the post, as Wisconsin centers Brian Butch and Greg Stiemsma scored nine and 10 points, respectively. Butch also collected a game-high 12 rebounds, as the Badgers outrebounded the Lions 41-22.

The team will face life without its best player for the first time Sunday at Indiana.

"We've got to band together and bond together," DeChellis said. "The season's not over for us."

SPEAKING

''That's my real estate in the corner. It's like Monopoly. I've got four houses and a hotel on there. It's what I do.'' - Detroit's Richard Hamilton, after scoring a season-best 39 points on 16 of 22 shooting in a 103-89 win over Toronto on Tuesday.
