PREDICTOR OF THE WEEK                      
Bob Scholl    153     13-2
                                             POW BOB SCHOLL'S LEAD INCREASES TO 11 
       Bob 'Cap' Scholl was POW by a point and increased his lead to 11 points.   For the third week  
       in a row, Cap lost the lead on Wednesday or Thursday but recaptured the lead before the week      
ended.  Three of the top 4 predictions of the week were by our first 3 predictors.
     Cap, Bob Stanley, Phil Hensley and Jerry Slagle all picked 13 winners in 15 games.  Cap had
the best point spreads thus earned POW honors.  His key pick was Texas Tech over Texas.  If
Texas wins Bob would have been in 3rd spot.  
      Amazing first half today by Michigan State against Indiana.  They started the first half
by making 21 of 25 shots including 9 of 11 three pointers!!
     Week  9 is due Tuesday, March 4th.  Games start on Wednesday.
