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.

This is a 1* Free Play on the Wizards.
It looks like a good spot to pull the trigger on the home side here, as Denver comes into this one disheartened after falling 116-111 in Brooklyn just last night. Washington should be the much “hungrier” side this evening as it’s dropped three of its last four, including a listless 124-116 setback to Orlando at home last time out. Also note that Denver is just 8-11 ATS in its last 19 as an underdog, while Washington is 3-1 ATS in its last four as a home fav in the 3.5 to six points range. Consider laying the points on the WIZARDS.
