BYU 87 @ PEPPER 76
1/18
WIN
12:58 AM

The Cougars have been erratic and haven't performed anywhere near their talent level, as they should be the second-best team in the WCC by a fairly wide margin. Pepperdine appears to be a program on the rise, but could be subject to a letdown Thursday following a tough road trip that included an upset of San Diego. Barring a flat spot, the Cougars should take care of business and pulla way in this one.

WIN
YESTERDAY 6:34 PM

These international games tend to favor the underdog, and the Knicks are a solid spot play Thursday. About the last thing a Washington team fighting for playoff contention wants to see is a struggling club with nothing to lose with young players who are out to make an impression. New York should also have a motivational edge because of the attention surrounding Enes Kanter, their big man who didn?t make the trip because of security concerns. Fade the public and take the points.

WIN
Wed 1/16

The rebuilding Shockers have lost four straight for the first time in more than a decade under coach Gregg Marshall. This streak includes tight losses to Temple and Houston last week. Wichita State is fast improving and has a strong chance to get a conference win Wednesday against an upstart UFC club that could be a tad overvalued here. The Knights have won sevens straight, but only has come away from their home court. Look for the hungry Shockers to have the edge.

LOSS
Wed 1/16

Penn State should be well-positioned for its first Big Ten victory of the season Wednesday against an Iowa club that has letdown an injury concerns. The erratic Hawkeyes have won three straight and are coming off an impressive showing in a win over Ohio State. But they have lost three of four and two straight at Penn State, which should play with a sense of urgency. Moreover, Iowa star Tyler Cook, the team's leading scorer and rebounder, is questionable with an ankle injury.

LOSS
Mon 1/14

This should be a solid spot play on an Indiana club in need of a victory following consecutive road losses and ahead of another tough road trip. The Hoosiers were blown out at Michigan before squandering a double-figure lead at Maryland. But freshman Romeo Langford continues to emerge as a star, and he had 28 points against the Terrapins. The Hoosiers are undefeated on their home court. Nebraska has one of the most efficient teams in the country, but has lost three straight conference contests and is coming off a hard-fought win against Penn State.
