MSG: With just 110 points separating the first 6 places, it may be interesting to see the distribution of picks this week. (I'll cover the Top 12 in the leaderboard, which are those I can see in one screen on my laptop.) --- /// --- \\\ --- Only one contest is a tossup: UTEP @USM. Six of the Top 12 have picked each team. Four games are 8-4: (Charlotte/@Rice; @Marshall/WKU; Kansas/@TCU & Kentucky/@Tennessee). The rest are highly skewed: Two are 10-2 (@UVa/UNC & @WVU/Oklahoma) and 11-1 (UTSA/@USM & ODU/@NorthTexas) and the other eight games are unanimous picks. --- /// --- \\\ --- As for the Bonus Question (Fewest FGs Made), my Rice Owls are again a runaway choice: 6 of the Top 12 expect the Owls' scoring woes to continue. One (#4 UM Ftball Tiger) picked Rice to "Place". (Personally, I considered aiming for the "Win" here, but didn't since it could be spoiled if any of the other games were slow-down affairs.) Two of our Top 12 leaders picked Charlotte or FIU, one has North Texas and, unfortunately for him, #5 monarchfan91 made no pick. Good luck to all!!

MSG: Well, THAT was fast!! The UTSA and Charlotte basketball teams spat in the faces of our Top 12 for having unanimously picked them to lose tonight. They both won, although only by 2 points each. But as they say, a W is a W! Congrats, 'Runners 'n' 'Niners!!
