NCAA Basketball Fullcourt Report (Nov 11)
Here is a look at two college basketball games on Sunday afternoon.
Florida International at Boston College (-14) - 2:00 pm ET #520
Boston College is an experienced team that returns 74% possessions and 71% minutes played from last year's team and head coach Donahue should get this team out of the basement and possibly on the brink of a NCAA tournament bid. They should get a big and easy win over a depleted FIU team that will be replacing all 5 of their starters from last season, including their top 2 scorers. Isaiah Thomas is gone, so new coach Richard Pitino faces a major rebuilding project. Boston College is on the rise, while the Panthers have to start from scratch with minimal talent to work with.
Manhattan (+18) at Louisville - 4:00 pm ET #541
Manhattan's head coach, Steve Masiello, was Rick Pitino's former assistant and runs the same system as Louisville. The Jaspers came on late last year and with 3 returning starters they should be ready to go out of the gate this season. They have the talent to be a NCAA tournament team.
Louisville may have trouble stretching out to a big win as their offense is still a work in progress. Chane Behanan was suspended for preseason games, so he's coming into this game cold which could further disrupt the team's offensive chemistry. Pitino said, "I wish we had two more weeks of preparation." Also, Rick Pitino probably does not want to blowout or embarrass a former assistant and close friend in Steve Masiello.

Just expect the Pelicans to be demoralized here in Game 4 after squandering the lead in Game 3 in one of the biggest comebacks in NBA playoff history by Golden State in that game. You got the feeling that the Pelicans “left it all on the floor” in that game, and we just don’t see how they regain their composure and play another game like Thursday after what went down, not to mention that the Warriors are one of the strongest teams the NBA has seen the last couple years. The Warriors are ruthless and we think they treat this one like a Game 7 even though they are up 3-0. We have seen time and time again that the Warriors start shooting threes every time down the court when up by 20+, and that attitude is why this team was such a great bet all season even when laying big numbers.
