Too Close to Call

Three games on tap tonight. Two of the matchups should go right down to the wire. The conference season is starting to weed out the contenders from the Pretenders.

Alabama @ South Carolina 7pm ESPN
The Gamecocks are creeping their way back up the SEC East, but face an Alabama team that has been red hot after a very slow start to the season. South Carolina has been very good at home this season, but I like Alabama in a barn-burner.
Prediction: Alabama

Wake Forest @ Duke 8pm JP
The Blue look to sweep the season series from the Deacs; a feat that should be fairly easy this season unlike years past because of Wake's struggles. WIll JJ get 30 again? If he doesn't, he will probably come close. Right now, it doesn't look like anyone can beat Duke in the ACC. Probably just jinxed them.
Prediction: Duke

Maryland @ Clemson 8pm JP
A game that is very important for both teams. For Maryland, they need wins to get off the bubble for the Tournament. For Clemson, they need wins to have a shot at the NCAA's. I think this game will come down to the wire. Maryland has had the habit of not showing up for some games this season. I don't think it will happen tonight, but I wonder if they will bring 100% effort to this game after losing to rival Duke on Saturday. I like Clemson in a very, very close game.
Prediction: Clemson

Season: 43-16
