Hopefully you've had a chance to check out our site by now—The Sports Chat Place—where we've been doing college hoops picks against the spread all season.
There are five of us from The Sports Chat Place who also write on B/R: Ryan, Mitch, Dave, Shaun, and Steve. There is a very good chance that, if you have been following college basketball this season (even casually), you have read something by one of us.
During the NCAA Tournament, we have put together a few articles with all of our quick picks against the spread. The idea is that everyone uses the same line, and is allowed to put their pick and one to two sentences.
In the Sweet 16 write-ups, I mentioned that the site had more than 650,000 hits (after having just over 500,000 at the start of the tournament). We now have over 700,000 hits since the site went up at the beginning of January!
Thank you to everyone who has checked out our site!

Line: Pitt -2.0
Mitch: Pitt -2.0—Maybe 'Nova left it all on the court against the Dukies?
Dave: 'Nova +2.0—Freight train heading into Indy.
Ryan: Pitt -2.0—Blair stays out of foul trouble and dominates the frontcourt as the Panthers finally get rolling.
Shaun: Pitt -2.0—Levance Fields and the Panthers are on a mission and will win the rematch against 'Nova.
Steve: 'Nova +2.0—Villanova is red hot while Pitt is lucky to be alive. 'Nova's guard play will dictate the outcome of this one.
