Thursday Morning’s Crabs and Beer

March 19, 2009 | Glenn Clark

Maryland 68, Cal 61

If Cal gets hot; they’ll win. I’m counting on them not getting hot. This should be the type of game where Landon Milbourne scores 24 using his size and range to his advantage.

Oklahoma 87, Morgan State 75

I think they’ll cover. But Kevin Thompson can’t mark Blake Griffin. Sooners roll.

Let’s see what everyone else has to say…..
