Looking at the recap now...

Delaware opened up an 18-point lead (61-43 with 14 minutes left in the game) only to see Columbia cut the margin to four points (65-61 with nine minutes remaining) before Delaware kicked again to win by eight at the wire.

Delaware never trailed in the game and looked like the right side despite the narrow cover.

Attendance: 2.142.

I started looking at this game several weeks ago. Virginia was 6-1 to the UNDER, I had cashed the Va/Maine game at 46-26 with a total of 105. I underestimated Virginia's ability to throw away a game that was already hopelessly lost, so the last 3 minutes really got away. Oh, well on the next day ..

No, games other than UVA were11-8 to the OVER. Very small sample and nothing really significant enough to bet on its own. UVA was #1 in KenPom def. eff., Purdue #9 with sketchy offenses. Purdue also was 6-1 to the UNDER before tonight.

Note to self: Add the adjective "sketchy" into my everyday vocabulary.

If you travel through a bad neighborhood, the word applies perfectly.
