Friday Morning’s Crabs and Beer

March 27, 2009 | Glenn Clark

Here are some weekend score picks:

Maryland 81, Vanderbilt 70

After being tested early by Utah; I get the feeling the Terps will probably handle the Commodores with ease throughout tomorrow’s game.

Johns Hopkins 10, North Carolina 8

I think Hopkins REALLY benefitted from their shootout with Syracuse. They’re going to give teams fits the rest of the way with a more open attack.

Virginia 12, Maryland 8

I think Dave Cottle is in trouble. He has plenty of talent; but they’re just not winning games the way they should be.

Syracuse 11, Loyola 7

This is just a mismatch unfortunately.

Towson 9, Drexel 8

I don’t have a good feel on this one; but I’ll go with the Tigers. Why not?

SOME QUICK THOUGHTS:

-I really think Kevin Ogletree could be in the mix to be picked by the Ravens. I think they need to look at trying to acquire multiple receivers in the Draft; as it looks more and more like Torry Holt might not be on the radar (he’s scheduled to meet with the Jaguars by the way). If they can find two capable receivers; they’re in good shape.

Talk to you sometime this weekend.
