PICK: I’m sticking with Saint Louis. The Billikens have been pretty shaky over their last three games, and haven’t been able to ben on the court consistently over the last month or so. Saint Louis was rusty in the Dayton game, but still managed to score 71 points with their capable offense. As long as the Billikens play to their capabilities in this one, I think they’ve got a better shot at a cover.

PICK: I like Oklahoma State here. These teams last met on December 16 in a tight 77-76 Horned Frogs win. TCU shot 54.5 percent in that one, pulling down 36 rebounds with 12 assists and 20 turnovers. Crazy winners login. Oklahoma State hit just 3-of-17 from 3-point range and had a tepid 65.4 percent from the line in the loss. I like the Cowboys to come back with a better effort here and get some revenge. Should be a good game.
