Prediction Time: Maryland-Villanova

New, comments

It's the championship of OOC play and there's absolutely nothing else going on today, so it's time to go on record and pick a result for Maryland's game against Villanova tomorrow.

On the one hand, Villanova was a Final Four team last year and is currently ranked #3 in the nation.

On the other hand, they got to the Final Four with two starters they don't have now, and are missing a third in suspended Reggie Redding.

Jordan Williams will be at an advantage for once in this season against Maurice Sutton, and Maryland matches up well with the shorter Wildcats. Of course, Maryland doesn't really have an answer for ultra-quick, foul-drawing PG Scottie Reynolds or solid post player and rebounder extraordinaire Antonio Pena.

I'm confident that Maryland will stay close, but this team is one of the best in the country. I'm calling for an 8 point Nova victory.

What say you?
