Tonight’s Picks – just a hunch
Holy Cross over Loyola by 7
Winners of 4 of their last 6 going up against a team that has lost 4 of their last 6, makes this a relatively easy pick. The Crusaders have come up winners in their last two outings at the Hart Center – one just happened to come over Loyola -team they’ll meet tonight. I’m “all-in” on the Crusaders. Their star 6’7” senior forward, #13, Malcolm Miller should, as he has in the past, prove to be too much for Loyola to handle. In his previous two starts against the Greyhounds, MM has gone a combined 10 for 17, scored 40 and snagged 12 boards. I also can’t pass up the stat that the Crusders are 18-4 all-time in PL tournament games played at the Hart Center.

Army gets Revenge Tonight in a Close One
Despite losing first by 9 and then later in the year by 8 to Navy, I’m thinking the Black Knights turn the tables on the Midshipmen tonight in Annapolis. I’ll banking on the old adage that says “it’s hard to beat someone three times in one season” and, after all, isn’t this Navy’s time to drop a game. You see, since February 4th, the Middies have gone: L-W-L-W-L-W- L –W. Is it not, therefore, time for a “L?” Army won’t go down with a fight tonight and may just come out on top.
Like I say………..just hunches and a bit of a wish or two thrown in. What is everyone thinking?
