Inside the Stats
Let's take a look at what's happening on the hardwood as we enter this weekend. All results are ATS (Against The Spread) through February 5 unless noted otherwise.

Good Guise

With less than six weeks remaining on the regular season portion of the 2013-14 College Basketball campaign, and the NCAA and other postseason tournaments just around the corner, it's time to analyze how teams have fared this season on games versus winning teams.

One team stands head and shoulders above all others in games against opponents sporting a winning record: Wichita State. The Shockers are 10-0 SU and 9-1 ATS in game against Division-1 foes with more wins than losses.

It should be noted Virginia is cooking of late against the same, taking a 7-1 SU and 8-0 ATS mark in its last games against winners into Monday's meeting with Maryland.

On the flip side, a handful of teams have really struggled in contests against winning opposition this season, namely: Cal Irvine 1-7 SUATS, Colorado State 2-8 SUATS, James Madison 0-5 SU and 1-4 ATS, Louisiana Lafayette 1-6 SUATS and Towson State 1-5 ATS.
