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.

Thursday MLB Free Play from Doc’s Sports Take New York Yankees/Boston Red Sox OVER 8.5 (Thursday, 7:05pm EST) The game’s best rivalry wraps up on Thursday in Fenway as the Red Sox host the Yankees. CC Sabathia and Felix Doubront are the scheduled starters and I don’t have confidence in either one of them right now. Sabathia comes in with a 5.19 ERA and he was roughed up by Boston less than two weeks ago in Yankee Stadium. Velocity has been an issue for him, but Sabathia has been able to put together a nice 27-5 K/BB ratio. Doubront enters the game with a 5.48 ERA and continues to struggle with consistency. The big inning has always haunted him and that could spell trouble against a dangerous Yankees lineup. Neither of these lineups has been knocking the cover off the ball this season, but it’s only a matter of time. The Red Sox and Yankees have been known to play in some slug fests and I think we’ll see another one on Thursday night. Take the Over here.
