College Basketball Handicapping: UNLV tries to bounce back after ugly loss

11.15.2013     08:03 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It's been a rough start to the season for UNLV. They were up only one at half against Big Sky bottom feeder Portland State before pulling away. The Rebels had 18 turnovers and shot 13-of-28 from the free throw line. And on Tuesday, UC Santa Barbara, who won only 11 games last year, waltzed into the Thomas & Mack Center and won by 20. The Las Vegas Review-Journal summed it up best with a post-game article titled, 'UCSB shows Rebels, Rice how to play, coach.' The Las Vegas Sun pointed out UNLV's struggles against the zone – something they’ll likely see more of moving forward.


“Obviously, it’s a very, very difficult loss,” Rice said. “Santa Barbara played well. We played very, very poorly. We got beat in every aspect of the game. It’s very disheartening; very disappointing.”



Heading into tonight's game against Nebraska-Omaha, head coach Dave Rice announced that Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Rice Owls at Texas A&M Aggies

11.15.2013     07:42 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Rice at Texas A&M -18
Recommendation: Texas A&M


In 2012, Rice was a nice story with 19 wins and two postseason victories. But the following year six players left the program including Arsalan Kazemi who proved to be a high-quality DI player during his time at Oregon. It is one thing for players to leave when a program bottoms out but it isn't a good sign following a season head coach Ben Braun had been spent three years working towards. Not surprising, last year was a mess as the Owls posted just one conference win and lost by single digits on only four occasions. Heading into this year, Rice lost its top two scorers and rebounders and Braun was forced to reload once again. In their season opener, the Owls shot less than 40% in a nine-point win over NAIA St. Thomas. And last time out, in what was a huge red flag, the Owls were beat on their home floor by Southeastern Louisiana who opened the season with an 89-53 loss at Missouri. Texas A&M has looked sharp in the early going with an 82-58 win over Buffalo and 91-67 win over Mississippi Valley State. The Aggies lost Elston Turner but returned four players with starting experience. Turner's Read more

College Basketball Handicapping: Scoring up over 6% thanks to fouls, free throws

11.12.2013     07:28 AM     Printer Friendly
Ken Pomeroy gave us the low-down on the statistical changes in college basketball through Sunday's games. It looks like the NCAA is getting what it wants – more scoring. But as Pomeroy points out most of it is coming from free throws.

College Basketball Gambling: Behold! The Niagara-Seton Hall box score...

11.11.2013     08:31 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The box score of the Niagara-Seton Hall game from Saturday is probably a little extreme but one that bettors should be prepared to endure more of moving forward thanks to the new rule changes.

Here are a couple of noteworthy stats...

- With 16:05 left in the first half, Niagara was in the bonus.

- Five players fouled out.

- There were 72 fouls committed.

- There were 102 free throw attempts.

- Both teams combined to shoot 4-of-26 from 3-point range.

- Both teams combined for less than a point per possession and yet there were 155 points.

- Two players, Niagara's Antoine Mason and Seton Hall's Sterling Gibbs, combined to shoot 43 free throws. Note that two years ago Gibbs played about 225 minutes at Texas and attempted only 22 free throws. Against Niagara he played 32 minutes and took 23 free throws.

College Basketball Betting Free Play: UW-Milwaukee Panthers at Davidson Wildcats

11.11.2013     08:11 AM     Andrew Lange     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
UW-Milwaukee at Davidson -12.5
Recommendation: Davidson


One of the lone highlights for UW-Milwaukee last year was its improbable home win over Davidson. The spots wasn't ideal for the Wildcats after losing a hard fought game at New Mexico and a high profile tournament in Florida on deck. It wasn't the type of loss that has Davidson salivating for revenge but certainly one they remember. Also adding to the situation is Friday's 111-77 loss at Duke. Davidson had to reload somewhat during the offseason but returns a lot of experience. Obviously a tough spot for former secondary/role players to step in and thrive. It is a result that I put little stock in. I get the sense that the UWM program is probably in the twilight of the Rob Jeter era. As mentioned, last year's win over Davidson was one of only eight victories – and only one came away from home; a 95-88 double OT triumph over IUPUI who went 6-26. The Panthers return only one proven player (Jordan Aaron, 14.4 ppg LY) and are relying on former role players and transfers. Davidson lost three key players but also return four seniors who have starting experience. And the Wildcats have had no Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Florida International Panthers vs. Eastern Kentucky Colonels

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Florida International vs. Eastern Kentucky -5 (at Kennesaw, Ga.)
Recommendation: Eastern Kentucky


Despite losing head coach Richard Pitino and three starters it looks as if Florida International has enough talent to compete in C-USA. But as with a lot of teams that suffer offseason turnover (and in FIU's case postseason ineligibility), it is going to take some time. They draw a tough first game matchup against a very seasoned and difficult to prepare for Eastern Kentucky squad. Head coach Jeff Neubauer has a reputation of doing less with more but decided last season that he was going to bring in some speed and athleticism. He did just that an EKU won 25 games including 12-4 in OVC play. The Colonels return four starters from that group – the lone loss was all-league point guard Mike DiNunno but Neubauer is reportedly going to use senior Glen Cosey (15.2 ppg) and a JC recruit as the team's primary ball handlers. Overall, EKU is a veteran club that is extremely efficient (55% 2s, 35% 3s, 78% FTs) and with the influx of athletes runs a very aggressive 1-3-1 zone (6th nationally in TO rate last year). In the grand scheme of things, Eastern probably Read more

College Basketball Handicapping: New rules in place to increase scoring

11.06.2013     06:45 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Good article on college basketball's new emphasis on hand-checking. Scoring (67.5 ppg) was at its lowest since 1982 so referees have been told to pretty much call all physical contact on the perimeter. This in theory will obviously lead to a lot more fouls (especially early on while everyone tries to adjust) which will result in more free throws and thus more points. The biggest complaint from coaches – most of which from the bigger, more physical power conferences – is that games are now going to be even uglier and longer than before. Imagine for a second a Louisville-Cincinnati matchup. Yikes.


Here's Oklahoma coach Lon Kruger's prediction for early season games: "Tons of fouls, a lot of free throws, long, ugly games. Hopefully fans can prepare for that. It is going to be frustrating."

"They don't want a great 57-52 game, hard played, competitive. They want an 86-82 game. Do they want to watch that garbage for four-and-a-half hours? Do they want to do that by shooting 70 free throws?  People don't want to watch free-throw Read more

Auburn basketball player arrested for point shaving

06.04.2013     02:29 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It has been over a year since we last heard about Auburn guard Varez Ward's alleged point shaving scheme. Turns out Ward was arrested on Monday for bribery. The game in question was against Arkansas back on Jan. 25 of the 2011-12 season. Auburn covered as a +9.5 underdog in the 56-53 loss but the "fix" was reportedly to make sure the Tigers lost the game straight up -- Ward only played 19 seconds. According to CRIS's moneyline history, Arkansas opened -550 and closed -500 which suggest that the operation was local and/or took place using off-screen sportsbooks.


"Watching sports should be entertaining," said Beck, who praised Auburn for its cooperation. "We want the outcome of the game to be based on talent and hard work, not some off-field, back-room deal. Fixing games not only hurts teammates, but hurts the fans and all viewing public."
