College Basketball Picks
When a team has been through the wringer like West Virginia has, they can respond in one of two ways. They can pull together and produce some of their best basketball of the season in a shocking performance, or they can fold their tents and become road kill for the rest of the season. With their top three scorers and their best rebounder gone, what will West Virginia choose to do? Saying that sentence out loud sounds a lot like WVU is going to a fist fight but equipped for a dance off. DJ gives his college basketball pick.

Villanova took the earlier match-up this season 76-71, but St. John’s got the money at a +6.5 road dog.
