Monday, November 13th Predictions

Prediction Record: 0-0 (Last Year's Record: 487-246)

Jackson State at Georgia Tech: Are the Yellow Jackets a serious contender in the ACC after last year's dismal season? Watch Jackson State's Trey Johnson. He averaged over 24 points per game last season, and had 36 points against Alabama on Friday night. Prediction: Georgia Tech 89, Jackson State 66

Vermont at Boston College: The Eagles don't look they will miss a beat without Craig Smith. Shamari Spears had 23 points and 6 rebounds in place of him the other night. Vermont played tough against Maryland for a half, and have an excellent point guard in Mike Trimboli. Prediction: Boston College 79, Vermont 65

UNC Greensboro at Penn State: The Nittany Lions could be a potential sleeper in the Big Ten. However, star Geary Claxton is out with an injury. UNC-Greensboro has an outstanding inside-outside combo with Ricky Hickman and Kyle Hines. Prediction: Penn State 82, UNC-Greensboro 70

Loyola Marymount at Mississippi State: Could be the best game of the night. Mississippi State had 29 turnovers in their first game, a 35-point win over Nicholls State, but have All-SEC performers in Charles Rhodes and Jamont Gordon. Loyola Marymount counters with the tandem of guard Brandon Worthy and center Matthew Knight. They are coming off an impressive win over Oral Roberts. Prediction: Mississippi State 75, Loyola Marymount 69

Fordham at Tennessee: NIT Season Tip-Off game. Tennessee has one of the best shooting guards in the country in Chris Lofton and are tough to match-up with, while Fordham is led by Bryant Dunston, an extremely underrated big man. Prediction: Tennessee 78, Fordham 70

Northern Arizona at Arizona State: Interesting intra-state match-up. NAU is coming off of a blowout loss at the hands of Kansas, but are one of the Big Sky favorites. Arizona State is annually one of the worst teams in the Pac-10, but have a decent amount of talent this season. Prediction: Arizona State 74, Northern Arizona 66

UNC-Wilmington at Belmont: Another NIT Season Tip-off battle. The Seahawks are coming off of an NCAA Tournament season in which they won the CAA title. However, they lost a lot of personnel, but return T.J. Carter. Belmont is a favorite in the Atlantic Sun, led by Justin Hare and Boomer Herndon. Look out for the upset. Prediction: Belmont 73, UNC-Wilmington 71
