Pickin' and grinnin'

Not sure we agree on the picks today, but if our perfect picking record remains intact after tonight, we'll share the credit. If anything's wrong, it's his fault.

Virginia Tech (1-0) at VCU (0-0), 7 p.m.
Meaningless stat of the day - VCU has won 18 straight at home. That's nice, but the group they'll put on the floor tonight hasn't won anything. And we'd like their chances better if lockdown guard Kita Waller wasn't sidelined with a knee injury. The restocked Hokies have already played a game to work the kinks out. Despite the home-court advantage, VCU's kinks get exposed tonight. Virginia Tech 65, VCU 62

George Mason (1-0) at Richmond (1-0), 4 p.m.
The Patriots cruised in their opener, but these Spiders are no Spartans. We like the talent Jeri Porter has attracted to GMU and Ladyswish fave Ashleigh Braxton delivered as advertised from long distance in the opener. But asking the young Patriots to travel and take down the Spiders is asking too much too soon. Richmond 71, George Mason 55

USC Upstate (1-0) at Longwood (0-1), 7 p.m.
Any school called "Upstate" doesn't sound very threatening, does it? The Spartans are no joke, though, and even if they were, these Lancers can't afford to overlook anyone. But after Friday's drubbing at Virginia Tech, Becky Fernandes and Co. will certainly welcome a challenge more their own speed. Longwood 63, USC Upstate 52
