Lenny D's 25* CIT Game of the Year (5-1 CBB Run): Former linesmaker Lenny Del Genio enters Sunday on a 5-1 Run in CBB! Last year saw him WIN his NCAA, NIT & CBI Game of the Year Plays! The CIT version lost by 1 pt. After SWEEPING the SWEET 16 this year + winning yday's TOP RATED "VEGAS ICON" w/ L'ville, Lenny's "out for blood." Don't miss his 1st 25* of the "smaller tourneys."
Game: Oakland at Utah St. Mar 25 2012 6:05PM
Prediction: Utah St.
Grade: Winner (100)
Reason: Play on Utah State at 6:00 ET. We're already down to only three teams left in this year's CIT & in case you haven't been paying attention, the winner here will meet Mercer in Wednesday's Championship Game. There are no neutral site games in the CIT, which is obviously a big advantage to the higher seeds, particularly those w/ a strong home court edge. Such is the case tonight in Logan with a Utah State team that has gone 16-4 this season on home court. The Aggies have been remarkably consistent in this tournament so far w/ final scores of 75-69, 76-56 and 77-69. Here they draw an Oakland team that is not only a losing proposition away from home, but is also allowing over 77 PPG on the road this season. This will be the Golden Grizzlies' first road game of the CIT Tourney. This is a Utah State program that prior to this year had produced 12 consecutive 23+ win campaigns. They also led the WAC in scoring defense. Home court advantage and a short number equal an easy play with the Aggies. Utah State is our 25* CIT Game of the Year.
