Contrarian Crusher - Rickenbach CBB Rotation #602 Saturday 8* George Washington Colonials (+) vs Rhode Island Rams @ Noon ET - This is a great spot for a home dog upset. I am expecting Armel Potter to be back on the floor today for the Colonials but, even if he does not play, I fully expect George Washington to stay within single digits in this game. The Colonials are fired up off back to back ugly losses on the road. Certainly they are happy to be back home for what is their only home game between January 29th and February 22nd. They'll make the most of this game and, prior to the B2B road losses, had won 4 of 5 games with the only loss coming by just 5 points. Also, George Washington is off for a full week after this game. It is definitely the type of set up where a team "leaves it all on the floor". Last, but certainly not least, this is a revenge game as the Colonials got blown out at Rhode Island last season. They lost the game by 27 because the Rams scored 30 points more than them from 3-point land as George Washington went 0 for 11 from beyond the arc. Of course that is not happening again here and the Colonials catch Rhode Island in a huge lookahead spot here. The Rams have won 9 straight Atlantic 10 games and have a massive game at Dayton (9-0 in Atlantic 10 action) on deck. That one sets up as a huge 1-2 battle at the top of this conference and Rhode Island can't help but to be looking ahead to that game on Tuesday. As bad as the Colonials were in recent road games they have been a much stronger team at home this season and this game has true upset potential. That said, grab the generous points. 8* GEORGE WASHINGTON
