Re: NCAA News and Notes Friday 11/21

Seton Hall (3-0, 2-0 ATS) vs. (13) Memphis (3-0, 2-1 ATS), at Puerto Rico

Seton Hall, which opened last season on a 6-0 run, tries to stay perfect through four games this season when it takes on 13th-ranked Memphis in the semifinals of the Puerto Rico Season Tip-Off in San Juan.

The Pirates rallied from a 15-point halftime deficit to beat No. 19 Southern California 63-61 on Thursday, pulling off the upset as eight-point ‘dogs. Seton Hall stepped up the defense in the second half, limiting the Trojans to just 24.1 percent shooting after allowing them to ht 62.5 percent of their shots in the opening 20 minutes. It was the Pirates’ first win over a Top-25 team since coach Bobby Gonzalez took over two seasons ago (1-10 SU).

Memphis moved into the semifinals with an 83-71 win over Chattanooga on Thursday, but the Tigers came nowhere near covering as 22½-point favorites. Shawn Taggart led the way with a 16-point, 11-rebound performance as the Tigers continue to spread to the wealth with five players already averaging double-digits in points.

The Tigers went 3-0 (2-1 ATS) against Big East teams last season, but they haven’t faced Seton Hall since 1974.

The Pirates are in ATS slumps of 5-8 overall, 5-17 in neutral-site contests, 2-4-1 in non-conference action and 1-6 on Fridays, but they have cashed in five of their last six after a SU win. Memphis is 5-2 ATS in its last seven games overall dating back to last year’s NCAA Tournament run and 5-2 ATS in its last seven non-conference games.

For the Tigers, the over is on runs of 6-3 overall (all in non-conference action), 6-0 against the Big East and 5-2 at neutral sites. Seton Hall has stayed below the total in six straight lined contests overall and four straight in neutral venues, but the Pirates have topped the number in four of six non-conference contests.

ATS ADVANTAGE: MEMPHIS


Michigan (3-0, 2-0 ATS) vs. (10) Duke (4-0, 2-2 ATS), at New York

The Wolverines already pulled off one upset of a Top 10 team in the Coaches vs. Cancer Classic at Madison Square Garden in New York, and now they shoot for two in a row when they take on Duke in the championship game.

Michigan stunned No. 4 UCLA 55-52 on Thursday, winning as a nine-point underdog, and snapping the Wolverines’ 12-game losing streak against ranked opponents and a four-game skid to UCLA. Michigan’s 1-3-1 zone defense shut down the Bruins, limiting them to 42 percent shooting and forcing them into 17 turnovers.

Duke played a poor first half against Southern Illinois on Thursday at the Garden, but pulled away for an easy 83-58 win and cover as a 15-point favorite. The Blue Devils went almost seven minutes without a basket in the first half, but used a 13-3 run at the end of the half to take a six-point lead in the locker room, then outscored the Salukis 54-35 the rest of the way. Duke held Southern Illinois to 35.1 percent shooting and had a commanding 40-22 rebounding edge.

The Wolverines have lost six straight to the Blue Devils, including last year’s 95-67 loss as a 24-point road underdog in the first meeting between these schools since 2002. Not only do these squads face off tonight, but they’re also scheduled to play each other on Dec. 6 in Ann Arbor, Mich.

Michigan has cashed in four of its last five games dating to the end of last season, but otherwise the Wolverines are on ATS slides of 2-5 in neutral-site contests, 4-13 in non-conference games, 0-4 against the ACC and 2-5 on Fridays. The Blue Devils are on ATS slides of 6-11-1 overall (all as a favorite), 8-20 at neutral sites, 3-7 in non-conference play, 2-15 on Fridays and 0-5 after a spread-cover.

The Blue Devils are on “under” runs of 8-2 overall, 7-1 at neutral sites, 27-11 in non-league action and 5-2 on Fridays. For the Wolverines, the under is 7-1 in their last eight overall, but the over is 9-4 in their last 13 non-league games and 5-0 in their last five against the ACC.

ATS ADVANTAGE: DUKE
