Everyone was able to avoid a horrible miss on Monday by picking Wake to cruise over Nicholls State. As most of the readers will know, Wake cruised to a victory over a really bad Southland Conference team to the tune of 75-47. While we weren't perfect with our margins (most picked a slightly closer game), or the point totals (most picked Nicholls to score a BIT more than 47 points), not too many picks were drastically far off.
Jake held on to his lead, moving to 5-0 on the season and will likely be able to push his record to 7-0 by the end of the week as the next two games should not bring many surprises prediction-wise or on the basketball court. Meanwhile Chris picked a high scoring game against Nicholls and dropped a bit closer to me at the bottom of the leaderboard but nonetheless was able to retain his hold on seventh place.
