  1. #3 Oklahoma @ #25 Texas (2 p.m. on CBS)
    • The pick: Oklahoma (+1)
    • Reason: Just a feeling that they will get hot at the right time of the year.
  2. #11 Louisville @ #12 Miami (2 p.m. on ESPN 3 (who knows why))
    • The pick: Miami (-3)
    • Reason: Coral Gables is a tough place to go and get a win.
  3. #9 Arizona @ #22 Utah (2 p.m. on ESPN)
    • The pick: Utah (-3.5)
    •  Reason: Every time I pick Arizona they lose. I’ve vowed to never pick them again. It’s a no brainer: Go Utes!
  4. #10 Maryland @ #20 Purdue (4 p.m. on ESPN)
    • The pick: Maryland (+4.5)
    • Reason: I know Mackey Arena is a tough place to play, but I think this will be a tight game that comes down to the wire, so I’d advise taking the points.
  5. #7 North Carolina @ #3 Virginia (6:30 p.m. on ESPN)
    • The pick: Virginia (-3)
    • Reason: It’s the marquee matchup of the day. I know UNC just got done destroying Miami last week, but Virginia has a great home atmosphere and that’s almost everything in college hoops.

There you have it. Five games featuring Top 25 teams. Sit back, relax and enjoy a sneak peek of the madness that will ensue in March.
