Virginia 41 – Maryland 40

Spread : Maryland -4.5
Total : 83

Sorry Scott Van Pelt (see @31:55-32:05 in game footage), but the Terps couldn’t pull it out. Defense was the name of the game for most of this contest despite providing a sweat for total bettors. This battle went into halftime with Maryland leading 22-18 although there wasn’t ever a huge gap between these teams in the first half.

At this point, we seem to be on pace for the under to cash and you’re thinking maybe the Terps can close it out. The second half continued to be dominated by defense. Maryland pulled away by as many as six points in the third quarter, but they just couldn’t close the door on the Cavaliers.

Virginia kept fighting and they snatched the lead back in the fourth, leading by as many as four with just under a minute left. Maryland knocked down a three with just over 30 seconds left but they couldn’t take advantage as they missed the game-winning three as the horn sounded. Kihei Clark was named the player of the game in a contest that managed to cash the first under of Degen Madness and also featured another upset.

San Diego State 46 – Wichita State 41

Spread : San Diego State -6
Total : 84.5

This contest was one of the more slow-starting games that we’ve seen so far. Wichita State came out flat early and they never fully recovered. They didn’t get their second bucket of the game until 1:38 and trailed by as many as seven early. The Aztecs looked prepared at first but they eventually lost their momentum.

The Shockers were able to cut the lead down throughout the second quarter. These two teams entered the halftime break tied at 18 a piece, on pace for another under. There wasn’t much of a change in the third quarter as San Diego State pulled away by for at one point, but that was short lived.

Wichita State held a 29-28 lead at the beginning of the fourth, and they looked to build on that. The Shockers led by as many as four points in the quarter and it appeared as though we may see our second upset of the day. They were in control for most of the fourth but the Aztecs showed resilience, taking the lead with a little over two minutes to go and never looking back. Malachi Flynn took home player of the game honors for San Diego State.

Degen Madness Day 3 Highlights

Louisville 47 – Oregon 41

Spread : Oregon -2.5
Total : 86.5

Day four of Degen Madness is underway, and there’s NO WAY that these games couldn’t continue to be close could they? Oh yes they could! This battle between college basketball blue bloods was entertaining and kept people on the edge of their seat for much of the contest.

We saw yet another slow start in this one with neither team scoring more than four points until under two minutes remaining in the first. The scoring eventually picked up although neither team could pull away. Oregon had a chance to take a lead into halftime, but they couldn’t take advantage and this game went into the break tied at 20.

Most of the third quarter was comically low-scoring, much like the first quarter. Louisville appeared as though they may pull away, leading by as many as six in the third. The Ducks gave a great fight in the fourth quarter, but their jump shooting came up short. The Cardinals iced the game away with clutch free throw shooting, putting Oregon out of the tournament. Steven Enoch was named player of the game after an impressive performance in the paint.

 

Creighton 52 – Memphis 41

Spread : Creighton -4.5
Total : 84.5

A lot of people questioned whether Memphis deserved to be in the tournament or not, and they didn’t disappoint doubters. The Tigers really looked outmatched most of this contest. Meanwhile Creighton came to play, and they could be due to make a deep run after an impressive performance.

The Blue Jays led by as many as 12 points in the first quarter. Their defense was electric, holding Memphis to only two points until they finally got a three pointer to go with 26 seconds left in the first. The second quarter didn’t get any better for the Tigers as they trailed by as many as 18 in the period and Creighton held a 33-19 lead at halftime.

Memphis was able to trim the lead to nine in the third, but that was as close as they could get. The Blue Jays pulled away once again, leading by as many as 15 in the quarter. The Tigers were able to climb back to within eight once again, but it was all for nothing. Creighton continued to answer everything being thrown at them and they closed the door. Announcer and committee member Sean Green was very vocal of his disapproval of the play of Memphis.
