Las Vegas - Gotta stick with my guy Jim Larranaga from the Bronx. His Miami team is not just winning games, they are WINNING GAMES! Started the tournament with a 63-56 win over Drake, covering a -2.5 point spread. Then an 85-69 win over Indiana as a +1.5 point underdog. And then the 89-75 win over Houston as a +7.5 point dog. What makes this a tough call is, Texas has also been rocking. The Longhorns have won seven in a row and covered seven of the last eight. However, the Hurricanes have a YUGE advantage on the road against the spread, covering 10 of the last 12, while the 'Horns are just average at 7-7. Also believe that the 'Canes have an edge with Larranaga's Xs & Os. Rodney Terry has done a TERRIFIC job in Austin after taking over for Chris Beard, but this is where the road ends. Gimme the kids from the Sunshine State for the money!
