NCAAB Game of the Day: UCLA vs. Georgetown

UCLA at Georgetown (Odds currently N/A)

After sitting out three games due to NCAA violations, highly touted UCLA freshman Shabazz Muhammad will make his much anticipated debut against Georgetown in the Legends Classic at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. The 6-6 guard, ranked among the top recruits in the nation, was reinstated Friday by the NCAA after hearing an appeal from the Bruins. Georgetown could also be at full strength if sophomore forward Otto Porter Jr. returns from a concussion that kept him out of Wednesday’s 68-59 win over Liberty. The winner of the UCLA-Georgetown game faces the winner of the other semifinal between No. 1 Indiana and Georgia on Tuesday. The losing team will play in Tuesday's consolation game.

ABOUT GEORGETOWN (2-0): Sophomore forward Greg Whittington scored 18 points and grabbed nine rebounds against Liberty, but it wasn’t a dominating effort for the Hoyas. Georgetown appeared unfocused in the second half, which could be expected considering the team’s youth. Georgetown’s roster doesn’t include a single senior and features 10 freshmen and sophomores. Freshman guard D’Vauntes Smith-Rivera averages a team-high 15 points, while Whittington has 24 rebounds through two games. Porter, a preseason All-Big East first-team selection, averaged 9.7 points and 6.8 rebounds last season.

ABOUT NO. 14 UCLA (3-0): With Muhammad’s eligibility drama behind them, the Bruins look to build on a promising start. Sophomore guard Norman Powell scored a career-high 27 points in a 110-70 win over James Madison on Thursday, and guard Jordan Adams is the first freshman in UCLA history to record at least 20 points in each of his first three college games. Adams is averaging 24 points, while senior point guard Larry Drew II has 25 assists through three games. Freshman guard Kyle Anderson is averaging a team-high 7.9 rebounds.


* Bruins are 1-5 ATS in their last six neutral site games.
* Hoyas are 1-4 ATS in their last five games following a win.
* Under is 4-1 in Hoyas’ last five overall.
* Over is 13-3 in Bruins’ last 16 neutral site games.


1. UCLA junior guard Tyler Lamb is listed as a gametime decision after missing the last two contests with a swollen knee.

2. Georgetown has been outscored in the second half of its first two games by seven points after outscoring opponents 68-46 in the first half.

3. UCLA won both previous meetings against Georgetown, in 2001 and 2003.

College Basketball: Streaks, Tips, Notes 

Mississippi State vs. North Carolina

Despite losing NBA first-round draft picks Harrison Barnes, John Henson, Kendall Marshall and Tyler Zeller from last year's team the Tar Heels head to Hawaii to face Mississippi State in the Maui Invitational tournament 3-0 (2-0 ATS). James Michael McAdoo expected to do a lot with the departure of all that NBA talent looks unstoppable tallying 63 points, 34 rebounds in the three wins. Heels 9-4 running the hardwood vs an SEC opponent have little trouble vs Mississippi State losing four of it's best players from last years 21-12 team and netting just 65.5 points/game in splitting the first two of this campaign. Expect Heels to move to 12-1-1 ATS vs the SEC, Bulldogs to fall to 0-3 ATS vs the ACC, 5-10 ATS in November.

College Basketball Odds and Trends: Monday, Nov. 19, 2012
By: The Linemakers

Point spreads and totals for Monday’s college basketball slate. No. 1 Indiana is in action, and the UCLA Bruins take on the Georgetown Hoyas in a matchup of traditional powerhouses.

Texas A&M vs Saint Louis (-2). It was announced Saturday that Saint Louis coach Rick Majerus will not return to the Billikens due to a serious heart condition. Saint Louis was picked 11th in the country by the Blue Ribbon College Basketball Yearbook. They have struggled so far in going 1-1 and losing to Santa Clara. How will they react now?

Here's a look at some trends for today’s games involving top 25 teams.

The Linemakers take: Long Beach coach Don Monson lost four starters from last season’s 25-win team, but he stockpiled reinforcements with Division-1 transfers. The problem is that the best of them aren't eligible until after the first semester and won't be able to help tonight.
