Tuesday In the MWC (11-15-11)

November 15, 2011

San Diego State vs. Baylor (-10) – the Aztecs have opened the season impressively, albeit against weak D-1 teams like Bryant, Southern Utah, and UC-Davis. They’re not deep but are very athletic. They’re led by guards Chase Tapley (coMWC POW last week) and James Rahon. Rahon has missed action with an ankle injury and it’s unclear if he’ll be available. Baylor is coming off a disappointing season but picked to be a contender this year in both the Big 12 and nationally. It should be a fun game to watch with all of the athleticism. I would stay away from this game because of the uncertainty of Rahon but I think the Aztecs might have enough carry over from last season to make this one close. Take the Aztecs and the points. TV – ESPN, 12:00pm mst.

Northern Colorado @ Wyoming (-6) – the Bears travel to Laramie to take on a revamped WYO team with new coach Larry Shyatt. Last year the Bears threw a 2-3 zone at the Pokes and ran out to a 31-4 lead on their way to a 67-53 victory. UNC lost four key players and is very young. I’m thinking Shyatt has a clue how to get his team how to attack a zone and that the WYO veterans will deliver enough to get the Pokes over the top. Take WYO and lay the points. TV – none. Which is too bad. Cuz I will be in attendance and want some face time after getting ignored by the Kiss Cam at Moby last week.

Colorado State @ Stanford (-4.5) – Both teams rolled to double digit wins last night. CSU got theirs by playing a flawless first half, Stanford by wearing down a thin Fresno team. The Cardinal have a pair of experienced bigs that will be a test for the Rams interior defense. CSU will not get as many open looks from the perimeter as they did last night vs. SMU so theyll have to a lot of the little things like take care of the ball and rebound. GATA! A win here and Miles will have recorded back-to-back victories over a Tarheel and a Blue Devil. Nice! Take the Rams and the points. TV- ESPNU, 9:00pm mst.
