basketball (update)

back in late January I made these predictions:

  • 1/29 – @ kentucky: this isn't your grandfather's kentucky and we always play well in rupp…Hawgs 69 Mildcats 60 WildCats 78 No Heart 76
  • 2/4 – South Carolina: back home, week off, hawgs win here….Hawgs 75 Cocks 63 Hawgs 73 Cocks 59
  • 2/8 – @ LSU: tigers are most talented team in SECW; tough at home….Tigers 75 Hawgs 71 (in OT) Tigger 78 Hawgs 77
  • 2/11 – Auburn: weakest team in SEC; Hawgs won by 16 a their place….Hawgs 82 Tigers 60 Hawgs 84 War Robin 64
  • 2/15 – @ Ole Mrs: Hawgs have gained confidence on SEC road; wear down Rebels…..Hawgs 72 Rebels 62 Rebs 73 RazorDon'tCares 70
  • 2/18 – Florida: most talented team in SEC; tough tough game…..Gators 69 Hawgs 65 Hawgs 85 Gators 81 OT
  • 2/21 – Bama: little revenge for Hawgs here as they should have won @ Bama earlier…..Hawgs 74 Tide 60 Hawgs 65 Tide 63
  • 2/25 – @ Tennessee: VERY dangerous outside shooting team; Vols off today though……Hawgs 72 Vols 62 Hawgs 73 Vols 69
  • 3/1 – Moo State: revenge factor again; Hawgs come to play today….Hawgs 85 Dogs 55
  • 3/4 – @ Georgia: regular season finale; Hawgs win SECW with win today…..Hawgs 74 Dawgs 70

as you can see from the reults in red, I won a few and lost a few, but in the end, I may come out just one win shy of my predicted 11 – 5 finish. however, even at 10 – 6, they will not win the West due to the great play of LSU who currently sits 13 – 2 in the league and look to be the overall SEC winners at this point. looks like a #3 seed in the SECT, but an NCAA bid is all but assured with a win tonight at home….
