Only 1 game on Sunday for the A-10 and it's the first chance at a BCS scalp. Duquesne opens as 15 point underdogs as they head to Washington D.C to take on Georgetown. The Dukes are coming off a tough 3 point loss at Albany and will look to pull off the upset on national tv.

I am not very confident heading into this one. The one chance the Dukes have is if they shoot their tails off from behind the arc. This team has that capability. Colter, Binney, Johnson, Pantophlet, the Joneses, and Winters are all capable of big nights from downtown.

I think both Colter and Winters have a chance at a ROW honor if they have good games.

I would like to see Abele muscle around down low with the Hoyas. Not many college players near his size. He only played 4 mins last game though.

If only it were a "hint." Then maybe it wouldn't be so frowned upon...

My Predictions (every > = 5 points in that winning team's direction):
Georgetown>>>>>>>>Duquesne

Z8's Record to Date: 10-3.

Abele put in some nice minutes. Some of his best I have seen.

I am sure some of it is Georgetown but Duquesne does look good on defense and is not as inferior to Georgetown as you would expect.

27-21 Georgetown at the half. Big couple of misses at the ft line for the Dukes there.

You know that comment about the Dukes needing to make 3 point shots to win? Yeah... still stands. We would be killing them right now if we shot well.

Boy it would have been nice to have Rivera Smith in a Xavier uni this year. Oh well.
