Beat the Blogger Match-Ups: March 9-10

After a run of several years, this will be the last edition of the Beat the Blogger contest. I appreciate the loyal contestants who have cast their match-ups every week. I hope to get something similar up and running in the future.

Last week: Mark lapped the field by getting every match-up correct in a perfect performance. Well done.

As a reminder, contestants please post your e-mail address with your picks to be able to get addresses when you win. For those unfamiliar with the Beat the Blogger contest, the idea is simple. The Blogger posts 10 match-ups each week and then selects his choices for the winners of those match-ups. Contestants enter the Beat the Blogger contest by clicking on the “Comment” section below the post with the match-ups and then select their own winners. Please fill out the tie-breaker question at the end.

If you Beat The Blogger’s total and post the high score for the week, you win. The regular weekly prize is a signed 8-by-10 photo of a professional athlete. Now to this week’s match-ups:

NCAA
Duke at North Carolina (NC)
Syracuse at Georgetown (GTown)
Notre Dame at Louisville (Louis)
Kansas St. at Oklahoma St. (OK St.)
Florida at Kentucky (Fla)
Indiana at Michigan (Ind)

Chicago at LA Lakers (LAK)

NHL (Sunday)
NY Rangers at Washington (NYR)
