Per usual, the early-season college basketball tournaments have produced their fair share of upsets. The big one yesterday happened out in Maui where the Virginia Tech Hokies knocked off the Michigan State Spartans. But another happened last night in Las Vegas where the Clemson Tigers used a 15-0 run at the end of regulation to force overtime against the TCU Horned Frogs. Brad Brownell’s team finished the job in overtime, 62-60, marking the biggest comeback victory for the Tigers since 2011. It also puts Clemson (5-1) in the finals of the MGM Main Event tonight against the Colorado Buffaloes (4-0), who advanced with a 56-41 win over Wyoming. Tip off is 11:30 p.m. EST at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. To get Dunkel’s pick for this game and the full NCAA Basketball schedule, click HERE.
In the NBA, the surprisingly explosive Washington Wizards (5-9) averaged 130.8 points during a recent five-game span before running out of steam in a 113-106 loss to Sacramento on Sunday. They’ll try to kick start the offense again tonight against one of the toughest defensive teams in the league in the Denver Nuggests (12-3), who have held seven of their last 10 opponents under 100 points. Tip off is 9:00 p.m. EST at Pepsi Center. To get Dunkel’s pick for this game and the full NBA schedule, click HERE.
